Crafts Big Shot Stephanie Barnard

Crafters can easily create one-of-a-kind cards using versatile Framelits™ card sets with Drop-ins™ and 3-D Drop-ins from Stephanie Barnard® for Sizzix®.

'I’m proud to introduce our new line of card dies, Drop-ins, which gives crafters a truly unique crafting experience,' said Stephanie Barnard, Licensed Designer for Sizzix.

Crafts leader Sizzix® and Stephanie Barnard® are expanding do-it-yourself crafting possibilities using die-cutting machines with her latest die-cutting and stamping products.

The line marks the debut of a new concept in card design: versatile Framelits™ card sets with Drop-ins™ and 3-D Drop-ins. The free movement of the smaller dies in the sets allows crafters to create unique card layouts with embellishing banner, floral, greeting, gift and sentiment dies that can be placed along the card sides for special appeal or made to pop up when used in the center.

“I’m proud to introduce our new line of card dies, Drop-ins, which gives crafters a truly unique crafting experience,” said Barnard.

Completing the collection are two Framelits with stamps sets in Alphabet Banners and Flowers & Fence, single Framelits Flip-its™ and Framelits Stand-Ups die sets for quick cardmaking. A Framelits and a Thinlits™ die set will cut floral, label and leaf shapes to create decorative details on papercrafting or scrapbooking projects.

“We continue to offer consumers fresh, innovative designs that expand our product library, while ensuring the unsurpassed quality and innovation that Sizzix is known for,” said Cara Mariano, Art Director for Sizzix.

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
