Cardmaking using die cutting machines is now more versatile than ever thanks to the new Stephanie Barnard® crafts collection for Sizzix®.
Charming butterfly, heart, flower and hexagon designs debut in an assortment of eight wafer-thin, chemically-etched Triplits™ die sets, which use Framelits™ and Thinlits™ technology to cut, deboss or stencil cardstock, paper, metallic foil or vellum. The functional nesting dies create striking shapes that can be mixed, matched, layered or stacked in countless creative combinations in cardmaking, mixed media and scrapbooking projects.
“Our new Sizzix Triplits die sets in Stephanie’s collection introduce consumers to a fresh product that provides endless DIY creative options for their projects!” said Cara Mariano, Art Director for Sizzix.
Six new Framelits Flip-its™ and Stand-Ups die sets empower consumers to create elegant, dimensional cards quickly and easily, while three coordinating Framelits labels cut intricate shapes for added value. Completing the collection are five Framelits die sets with corresponding car, ice cream, teapot and sentiment clear stamp designs that add fun embellishments to any papercrafting project.
“As a cardmaker, I'm so excited about my newest release,” said Barnard, Licensed Designer for Sizzix. “Not only does it have dies to add to the Flip-its family, it also has Stand-ups in the Framelits format and the highly anticipated Triplits dies!”
Complementing Stephanie’s product line is the new Sizzix Stamper’s Secret Weapon™, which creates cleaner stamped impressions or piercings for paper projects. The accessory has an MSRP of $12.99 and will be available in July.
The latest Stephanie Barnard collection is now available in stores across the country, including local craft boutiques and major retail craft chains. For more information, visit http://www.Sizzix.com/home.
