Lynda Kanase Sneak Peek for Sizzix 2019

I am so excited about my newest series of dies and stamps for Sizzix. We are now designing what they call “Chapters” {similar to seasonal themes} instead of collections. What this means is that new designs will be released more often throughout the year but my designs will be part of a seasonal theme rather than as a larger collection. This first Chapter 1 features Spring and floral designs. My Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 dies and stamps will be presented at Creativation in Phoenix next week. I will be posting highlights and more sneak peeks from the show.

Here’s a brief overview, starting with the Butterflies & Cross Favor Box. This is a pretty and delicate box with a ribbon closure perfect for party favors. There are three interchangeable panels that can be placed in the sides to create either a lacy heart window, a delicate cross window or a dimensional butterfly window. And with a little trick you can also die cut separate butterflies to add dimension to this or any other project.

I also designed a Dress Box that is perfect for wedding favors, princess parties or a quinceañera celebration. This die comes with an interchangeable lacy insert to add detail to the front of the dress or it can be left solid for a different look. There is also a rosette  and a bow to embellish the dress. I created this fancy sample but I can’t wait to share another dress I created with a totally different look just by using different colors.

Next is the Card in a Box, Flower Basket. This basket can be filled with beautiful die cut flowers and leaves and then folded flat to fit inside an A2 envelope for mailing. The front basket pattern is interchangeable so you can leave it solid to embellish in different ways. I love designing options into my dies. How about a lovely Mother’s Day card made by filling the basket with lots of flowers and leaves.card_in_a_box_flower_basket

The Window Box card is created with a single Impresslits embossing folder that also die cuts the window shape. How cool is that! Simply insert a piece of card stock, run it through your Big Shot machine and it embosses the stone pattern and die cuts the window panes in one pass. Add a cascade of flowers and leaves to create a lovely window box. The embossed stone wall was colored by lightly highlighting with Distress Oxides.

The Bee Happy Happy Happy card was created using both my Spring Things dies set and Spring Phrases stamps set. I had so much fun layering all of the flower pieces to create the different flower patterns. I adhered these down along both sides of a card front and then added a piece of white card stock with the stamped words “Happy”. I added the die cut bee on top to finish off the design. The Spring Things die set comes with all of these flower pieces, several greenery shapes, a couple of label shapes plus a bee, butterfly and bird to embellish all kinds of projects. The Spring Phrases stamps include the words: Happy, Birthday, Spring, Love, Hello, Easter, Thank & You plus a spray of flowers and two ladybugs.

There is also a Mini Album die set which has so many possibilities that I wasn’t able to design a sample for this post. I’ll post photos of samples from Creativation and share some inspiration.

    Thank you so much for the video on the flower box card. I bought the die, but was disappointed that there was no instructions. I called sizzix & the rep. told me to just figure it out, that they don’t have instructions for everything. So glad I googled your name. I will have to buy the window box card die next. Your designs are awesome.
