What's NEW Wednesday - Vintaj and Sizzix!

Sorry, I just didn't feel like bringing home lunch today, so instead of what's for lunch, I have what's new!

My two loves are coming together in one project! I get to use my Sizzix Big Shot with the new Vintaj line by Sizzix! The two companies have teamed up to make some great embossing folders and etching dies so you can create some beautiful jewelry or paper craft embellishments.

Vintaj Blank metal piece
 You could use the plastic embossing folders with the Vintaj jewelry blanks but these new embossing folders  are perfect because the designs are scaled down and the metal really makes great impressions.

Deco Etch dies look like...well, they look like dies. You place the metal blank on the design area you want and run it through your Big Shot like a Sizzlit die.

You get a lightly etched design. I lightly sanded the piece to ring out the design.

Deco Emboss is a metal embossing folder that makes a deep embossed design.

You get a really nice impression. I lightly sand the pieces to bring out the design more.

I really liked the Deco Emboss one a lot because after I sanded both sides, I got a different look on each side!

I just had to share these because it's so much fun and so fast and easy to make these pieces.I might color them up with Alcohol Inks or Copics! Now, to think of what I'm going to make with them!

You'll find them in our Bead Shoppes (Hilo, Kahului and Mapunapuna) and there's even a special edition Vintaj Big Kick!

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you're having a great week!
