Sizzix mixed media shows with Lisa Jones Botanicals

I’ve got a very busy week of shows this week. Both on Create & Craft UK and US.

First up, I’m on Create & Craft US on Wednesday with a bit of a Sizzix takeover. There are 4 shows back to back, two will be mixed media shows with these gorgeous Lisa Jones botanical dies, then I’ve got 2 shows with the brand new Effectz range of paints and mediums. Check out the website for timings as I know they’ll be different depending on which time zone you are. For UK viewers that might want to watch them, you can watch if you go to http://www.createandcraft.com/us. I’m on from 9pm to midnight our time.

The UK shows are as follows – double Mixed Media show with these gorgeous Botanical dies (and the new Tim Holtz Colorize sets called Under the Sea) on Thursday at midday, then Pete takes over with the launch of the new Effectz range. He’s there Thurs/Fri/Sat, then I’m back on Sunday at 14.15 with my take on the Effectz range. I’ll share my projects with those in a separate blog post.

So it’s a very busy week on C&C for Sizzix!

More sneak peaks ahead of my Create & Craft shows…

I really love this Spring Layered Scene die set, it creates such a pretty scene – and it can be used in a few different ways.

Another die that can be used in a few different ways is this Bold Floral Heart set. It has an outline die so you can use it directly into the card front, as a heart, or as a stencil.

I often think it’s a bit of shame after spending a lot of time making a card to put it in a very boring white envelope. I love this Foliage Envelope Liner die set, you get two different sizes of liner to add this pretty detail to your envelopes.

Just a few more cards to share. My shows tomorrow are at 9.45am and 5.15pm, hope you can join me.

Create & Craft shows on 16 March

I’m back at Create and Craft next Tuesday for two shows with a lovely selection of dies. This cake die set is a Bigz die, so can be used with lots of different materials, however, for this card I’ve used some Opulent Gold card as well as some of the new Mystical Opulent collection – it’s hard to tell from the photo but I used the ombre holographic card for the cake and it’s a lovely sparkly, graduation of colour from a dusky pink to white. The background was created by using the Drifting Hearts die as a stencil with some gold texture paste.

Talking of the Drifting Hearts die, I used it here together with some silver Texture Roll, backed with some more of the Mystical Opulent card – this one is the glitter ombre.

More of the Mystical card here, together with the Birthday Candles die.

I really like the Birthday Candles die – you can pop card behind it, or paper piece it as I’ve done here. You can also just use the candles separately.

A very modern feel to this one – using the Geo Stitched Frames and Bold Alpha die sets.

That’s it for today – I’ll be back tomorrow with more (which include some lovely spring florals)

More sneak peeks ahead of my Mixed Media show on Tuesday

Here’s a few more of the cards I’ll be sharing on Tuesday on Create & Craft TV – these first two cards are using the Tim Holtz Funky Nature die set. I really love the elements in this set, and they are all cleverly designed with nice layers so you can build up the colours.

I really love the impresslits in this release – especially the four leaf clover, the detail on it is lovely, so I highlighted it with some gold wax.

This Wildflower is a Bigz, so I decided to use some thick corrugated cardboard to give a bit of a rustic look.

Sorry this photo is a bit bright – I couldn’t get a good shot in the bright sun today! It looks much nicer in real life.

The Cafe Colorize set is really good fun, I’ve got a few coffee/tea themed stamp sets so I’m glad to have some nice dies to use with them.

That’s it for now – I’ll be on Create & Craft TV on Tuesday at midday for a double show.

Sizzix Lisa Jones collection – Mother’s Day cards

Well I wasn’t struggling for inspiration this year when it came to make my Mother’s Day cards – it was the perfect excuse to make some more cards with the new Lisa Jones collection. My mum is from London, and my mother-in-law is from Birmingham, hence the different spellings of mum on my cards!
