It's the day after Christmas, I feel like a free women, how about you?
No more wrapping, shopping, baking, cooking those special meals...woowho!!
I can do what I want , when I want...at least for a few days..LOL!!
I haven't done a challenge in quite some time and picked the challenge at
Cheery Lynn Designs "Anything Goes" to get me back into the "mode" so to speak!
I decided I wanted to use more of my "Shimmer Sheetz"
( that I showed in a previous post "HERE" ) in a different way.
I was wondering if they would work with the dies.....(besides the Sizzix Bigz dies)
I found with a bit of trial and error, they will work with a few of the ones that
aren't as "intricate" and they will not cut the word dies.
I used a Cheery Lynn Designs flower die "Stacker Flower #5" and it cut through
the Shimmer Sheetz quite well. I did have to somewhat "punch" (carefully)
the petals out.
I used my Cuttlebug to cut with, using this stacking sequence:
on the base, C plate, shimmer sheetz, cardstock, die facing with cut side down, B plate
and then my Cuttlehug.
Now this is what worked for me, your machine could be quite different. Never force
it through, you might break or damage your machine.
After my flowers were cut (I did 3), I ran them thru my dots EB folder, then sanded
them for a variation of color. I wish you could see this flower in person, it is beautiful!!
I added a Cheery Lynn Designs "Victorian Romance" flourish, some pearls, TH Ideaology
paper, a stamp from Marianne Designs and was done!!
