You Are Fabulous And So Is This Card!

timthumb.php3

Hilary Kanwischer used her creativity and sewing skills to create this beautiful handmade card with a cool and casual country vibe! I love how she incorporated a variety of custom embellishments including the sparkling silver center sentiment created using the Fabulous die from the Modern Surrealist licensed line of shape cutters for Sizzix!

Hilary made clever use of the holes on each end of the Fabulous script by using them to connect the piece to the card with brads, resulting in a very polished detail and eliminating the need for any adhesives! And I especially love her machine stitching accent around the heart opening! It’s such a joy to see all of these designers having fun creating with the shape cutters I’ve designed and expressing their very diverse sense of style! Stay tuned for more inspiring project ideas coming soon featuring the Modern Surrealist for Sizzix licensed line of shape cutting tools!

Make a Splash Birthday Card featuring Chained and Thought Talk Bubbles Licensed Shape Cutters for Sizzix

Here’s a cute idea! Designer Anna Wight created this whimsical chicken birthday card featuring the Thought Talk Bubbles and Chained dies from the Modern Surrealist licensed line of shape cutters for Sizzix!

I love how she positioned the sentiment onto the talk bubble and the inking applied around the edge really make this custom made embellishment POP!

Anna then created a high contrast border accent using the same inking technique on a piece of card stock she cut out using the Chained die layered over a black strip of paper, for the poolside chicken to dive off from. That is assuming he’s not too chicken to get into the water!!!

 

Another Fabulous Project featuring Modern Surrealist Shape Cutters for Sizzix

Genevive Rulona came up with this elegant Parisian style scrapbook layout which makes clever use of the Mini Envelope and Fabulous dies from the Modern Surrealist licensed line of shape cutting tools for Sizzix!

I love how she incorporated the two mini envelopes into her scrapbook page layout, giving this project an extra special feature – little places to store mini mementos or notes! And the gem and pearl stud closures she added to the mini envelopes really take it up a notch!

To bling this project up in honor of her fabulous friend, she used the Fabulous die to make her own custom embellishment with chipboard, glitter and ultra thick embossing enamel. I love how this project lets Genevive’s unique personal style shine through!

Tres chic indeed!

Awesome Chained Card Video Tutorial by Vivian Keh for Sizzix

I’m excited to share this beautiful card design created by designer Vivian Keh for the Sizzix blog. It was made using the Chained die from the Modern Surrealist licensed collection of shape cutting tools for Sizzix.

What I love about this card is how Vivian used the Chained shapes to evoke her own personal style! The colors and patina are very sophisticated and the juxtaposition of the different textures lend itself to a really high end, earthy, distressed and almost steam-punk vibe!

Whats great about the shape cutting tools that I’ve designed for Sizzix is that they can be used to create all kinds of projects to suit your individual sense of style, whether its glamorous, bohemian, retro or even steampunk! The possibilities are truly endless! Enjoy Vivian’s video tutorial showing how to make this beautiful card!
