Stix2 Designs 2017


Hi everyone I've been hard at work creating some new samples for you all to peruse using the great new products from Stix2 launched at the NEC in February. I've also been playing with some of the new Woodware designs from Francoise Read & Jane Gill  now marketed by Creative Expressions plus some lovely Thinlets dies from Sizzix. All card blanks are from Stix2's great quality range of cards & envelopes.

 Take a look !  


Sizzix die "Delicate Feather" used with the new
Transfer Foil set from Stix2 "Pick & Mix" (S57369).
 The "ghostly" feathers you see there are the result of a
happy accident & are in fact the waste from the Stix2 die cut
release sheet (S57316) which makes die cutting
 with your most intricate dies so easy. 

All the card used here comes from the Stix2 "Tinted" range
& to add a touch of sparkle I've used some round Stix2 3D foam pads
which I've covered with glitter from one of the Seed, Bead & Glitter sets


Here again all the card used is from the "Tinted" range
 plus some lemon ginham card for the rabbit with 
a 8 x 8 card blank as the base. I've punched the daisies
 from some white & lemon Stix2 Stardust paper

Here's another take on the Sizzix "Wild Rabbit" die this
time using Stix2 orange Stardust card & a piece of their
gorgeous satin ribbon. 

Another look at the new Transfer Foils from "Pick & Mix"



Here I'm using one of the new Woodware stamps FRS349 "Tatty Daisies"
I've created a background using Stix2 Project Acetate & water based markers
before stamping on top. The centres of the flowers  were made with hot glue
& gold transfer foil. 

Here we have another new stamp, this time FRS638 "Paris Collage".
The butterflies are a Tim Holtz set from Sizzix "Detailed Butterflies- Mini"
I've given the top butterfly the transfer foil treatment with the Stix2 2in1 glue pen.
Here's a closer look.


Here I've used the other new set of Transfer Foils
"Chocolate Box Treats" (S57368) 

Another look at "Tatty Daisies" used with the acetate
created background & mounted onto card from the "Tinted" range.

Lastly we have FRS639 "Tatty Butterflies". I've sponged
 a background using Distress inks & stamped some of the smaller
icons. I've stamped the larger butterflies separately, cut them
out & added some transfer foils using the glue pen again.
I covered the background with a piece of DS Tape sheet (S57107)
removed the top sheet of backing paper put the butterflies in place
& then covered the remaining sticky area with Stix2 Crystal glitter.

Mothers Day is only a month away so time to create a special card for a special lady. I've used the Stix2 with heat range & have started by using the Tim Holz Wildflowers dies with the Various Materials sheet. I then sponged the die cut flowers softly with the pastel colours of the Versamagic pads before removing the paper backing sheet (a bit tricky but worth it!) & laying in place on the canvas which I had previously sponged with the Distress inks. Now cover the flowers with parchment paper & heat with the iron. It's important to leave the parchment paper in place until completely cold or you will peel off your design too! I love this effect as it gives a beautiful water colour look.I glued the piece of canvas to a piece of lavender card & mounted to the left of the card blank. 
Next I took a piece of the DS  poly sheet & peeled off one backing paper to stick it onto a piece of card. I then die cut 2 butterflies using the Tim Holtz Detailed Butterflies set using the solid butterfly die.I also die cut 2 butterflies in pink & blue using the filigree die. I peeled off the remaining backing sheet on the "solid" butterflies & applied the hologram silver transfer foil from the "Carnival" set. Now simply lift the wings of the lacy butterfly & attach it to sit over the silver one. To finish I've stuck the butterflies to the card blank along  with the stamped sentiment & I've added some clear foam pads covered with transfer foils as embellishments. 


Here's a closer look at the butterflies.
