Hello! I'm back again with a water color card for Sizzix Lifestyle. You know I have been experimenting and exploring a lot with my water colors. When husband is out of town you'll find a lot of time for yourself! I'm enjoying every bit of it but I miss him!

I started by die-cutting the Sizzix Woodland Deer out of water color paper with the help of Big Shot Plus Machine and applied rainbow colors to the die-cuts. The water color technique I used was wet on wet. And I let them dry!

Then I water colored the background with the same wet on wet technique. Once the background is dry I added splatters of white paint. Then I die-cut the letters from Mixed Media #3 and adhered all the elements together with glue.

And that's all for today. In the above picture 'The father deer is very attentive, the mother deer is so caring and the fawn is enjoying'. The same things happens in our lives also. Very true, right! Thanks for visiting. Take care and I'll see you next time! :)

Hello my dear crafty friends! How are you all? Today I have a very beautiful water color Tropical Card and this card features Sizzix Tropical Bird and Sizzix Dainty Upper Case Thinlit Dies by Sizzix Lifestyle. I did a little experiment with colors by adding various water colors to the die-cuts. And I achieved what I desired for! Also I love that pun sentiment. Yes! Toucan do it!! LOL.

I started by die-cutting the Sizzix Tropical Bird Thinlit Die from Canson Water Color Paper several times. I applied a little water to the die-cut and added different shades of green, blue and yellow to the leaves.

I applied the same technique to the flowers (shades of pink and yellow) and the bird (shades of black and purple). I fussy cut the bird, the flower and the beak, layered over the previously water colored die-cut. This created a raised up look and added a little dimension.

Over the main card base, I water colored stripes and added splatters of black pigment.

I die-cut the sentiment out of black card stock from Sizzix Dainty Upper Case Thinlit Dies and adhered it.

And that's all for today. I hope you like it. Don't be afraid to try something new! Just give it a try. TOUCAN (You Can)!! Thanks for visiting. Take care and I'll see you next time! :)

How I made this card

  • I started by water coloring the moon with Dusty Concord and Black Soot Distress Inks on some heavy weight card stock.
  • Next I added splatters of purple, black and white ink.
  • Next I die-cut the cute Cat, Broom Stick and Witch Hat from Halloween Set with Sizzix Bigshot Express machine from white card stock.
  • I colored the die-cuts with Sizzix Permanent Markers. 
  • The Hat and Cat looked plain so I added white dots and doodled a little respectively.
  • Then adhered all the die-cuts over the water colored panel and finished the card with a sentiment from A Muse Studio.
  • Finally adhered the card panel over the main card front which is smaller than the A2 size card.

Hello everyone! Today I have a very quick introduction to Sizzix Sidekick Machine / Starter Kit. This machine is portable and affordable designed for wafer thin dies, mini embossing folders and Sizzix 12" decorative strip dies. It weighs two pounds and 4 3/4" tall. It has a special vacuum seal that holds it securely into place onto any smooth work surface. The vacuum can be sealed with the help of the lever. Always remember to use thin card stock because using a heavy weight card stock may ruin your machine. Watch the video to learn more about Sizzix Sidekick Machine. :)

Sizzix Sidekick Starter Kit

I received Sizzix Starter Kit in my DT kit. This includes
  • Framelit Dies
  • Small Embossing Folders 
  • A stamp set
  • A pair of aqua cutting pads
  • An embossing pad
NOTE : Please note that small and medium Sizzlits as well as Sizzlits Decorative Strips can also be used with the Sidekick. The compatible clear cutting pads are sold separately. And you have to spin the handle in anti clockwise direction for this machine.
