New Sizzix Releases from Stephanie Barnard, and a Stand-Ups card!

I was super excited to receive 'Sizzix post' this week... some dies from Stephanie Barnard's new Flip-its and Stand-ups collection!
I enjoy working with her Flip-its dies, and she has some lovely new shapes out, including the Fancy Flip-its and the Ornate Flip-its, along with their accompanying Framelit sets.
I also received another of the new A2 (or UK A6) Framelit Flip-it sets - this time the Fancy Frame one, and finally, one of Stephanie's new Stand-ups card dies.
The top two Flip-its dies in the picture and the Stand-ups die are all 'Movers and Shapers', meaning they have an opening in them allowing you to put smaller magnetic Movers and Shapers dies inside!
Eeek! Thank you Stephanie!
I didn't have a great deal of time to play with my new dies when they arrived, but quickly put this card together using the Square Stand-ups die. It uses a single layer of double sided card stock (this is from October Afternoon), and I just added some simple layers, Tim Holtz Bird & Cage Movers and Shapers die cuts, and a cute little tag from the Fancy Frame Framelit Flip-its set. (Try saying that fast!)
The stamped sentiment is from this 'The Stamps of Life' set.
 The Stand-ups dies puts all the cuts and fold lines in, and also make a little notch, to stop your card front slipping forwards, and it all folds flat for easily putting in an envelope. Fun!

  1. Looks great Helen! Stephanie's new Stand-Up dies look really interesting, and I love how you decorated this one with the bird and bird cage.
