cha-winter 2012…sizzix alterations (part 3)

happy friday bloggers!  thanks for all of the comments you've been leaving about the new releases, i agree the anticipation of it all is crazy.  today is the final preview of my new releases with sizzix alterations for this show and this batch will be shipping in april.  i absolutely love this collection of vintage inspired elements and just wait until you see the samples i've created using these for cha.  i'll be back on monday to kick off the week with my new stamps, can't wait…t!m

alright let's get right to these awesome new bigz dies and all of their vintage goodness.  the "vintage globe", "vintage typewriter", "vintage telephone", "vintage camera", "vintage fan", and "tick tock" are larger than life dies designed to fit the entire fronts of cards or use on scrapbook pages or canvas.  the "tick tock" was also designed so you can add a vintage clock face to it since i sized it to fit the clocks from my lost & found 12×12 paper (shown below)…

of course i had to do these in minis too and just wait until you see these for yourself.  these are mini movers & shapers so they can be added to any movers base die or die cut using the base tray.  sized from 1 1/2" to 3 1/2" when they said good things come in small packages i'm sure they were talking about these…
okay, i told you yesterday that "word play" was my dream die, but why stop at one dream right?  this cargo stencil set is my other new favorite since it is in fact a mini movers & shapers.  this set contains 11 individual dies with stencil numbers sized at just 1".  now you can create your own significant numbers for special dates and holidays with the classic look of stencils…

speaking of stencils, this new decorative strip die will allow you to cut your own stencil font from cardstock, but don't forget to save the background paper since it is in fact a stencil – think about it, cool huh?…
now these new texture fades are going to be an instant hit with steampunk enthusiasts like me.  the new "subway &
stencil" set is awesome with distress ink and great to cut apart too.  the "book covers" are great to also use with stamps since the centers will stay perfectly smooth.  the "diamond plate & riveted metal" is perfect when using it with the metal foil tape.  industrial at it's finest…
