Hello there, Sizzix friends, Mou here from colorhappycreations.com! Hope your Christmas was wonderful and as we head into a brand new year, here's a tutorial to freshen up your home decor with a bit of whimsy. Here's a set of canvas created with Sizzix dies from Lori Whitlock's Made with Love collection.
These are the diecuts.
To diecut the Jar, lid and hearts, create a Sizzix sandwich: lay the Sizzix Bigz die Jar # 2, blade side up on a Sizzix Accessory Cutting Pad- Standard. Lay the paper on the blade surface and cover with the other Standard Cutting Pad. Pass the whole sandwich through the Sizzix Big Shot machine.
TIP: You could stack a few pieces of cardstock ( the number really depends on the paper thickness) to get all the pieces in just one go. Or, use up your small scraps by layering them over the hearts of the Jar # 2 die and get your pieces that way.
Repeat with Sizzix Bigz Die Teapot. Make sure to diecut two-three flowers to cluster.
Finally, repeat the above steps with Sizzix Bigz Die Fox # 2. Don't forget to die-cut the second leg for the fox.
Paint your pieces with watercolor or your favorite paints.
Attach the finished pieces to 8"x 8" canvases. Display them on your walls and they will put a smile on your face every time you see them! Mine are going on the nursery walls of my little girl.
Before, I finish today, I want to wish you all a very happy new year!
