Hello, Sizzix friends! Vivian Keh here today with a video Sizzix Tutorial sharing how beautiful Sizzix die-cuts can function as stencils. For my project, I crafted a mixed media tag featuring a selection of love-themed Sizzix die-cuts. I am completely gaga over this new Tag Sizzix Bigz L die from Stephanie Ackerman! Its larger size makes for a substantial tag! And talk about versatile! It can be used to die-cut pages in a mini album. Since its a Bigz L die, you could also die-cut a chunky a mini album cover with it. It could work as a great mat/layer on a layout, nicely grounding a photo in your composition. And, because of its basic shape, I think it will become one of those "essential" dies, whatever your crafting style. When I first saw it, I will confess to you, I think I actually started clapping!
Believe it or not, this tag was actually inspired by a TV show I just discovered! More on that in the video.
Here are some closeups of the shapes and patterns created by using my Sizzix die-cuts as stencils.
Gently inking creates soft impressions. Where you want to highlight a beautiful style line from your die-cut stencil, you can apply ink more assertively!
I hope you enjoy my video tutorial! For more inspirations from me, please stop by my blog!
