Hello! Today I'm excited to share with you two new Sizzix dies from Cut At Home! The first one is the Card front, Hearts with layering shapes. This a a new Thinlits die that comes with 7 dies!! This large die is 4 3/4 x 6 1/4, so it will cover the front of your entire A2 sized card. I also love that it comes with 6 separate heart dies that you can layer on top, or use separately.

I have also used the new Sizzix "Just a note" alphabet die set on two of the three cards I've done today. This Thinlits die set comes with 69 dies. Upper case, lower case, and lots of extras!

Today I have three cards to share with you, using these dies, along with the Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms die that I shared last week.
Here are the three cards I've made. Two are standard A2 (4 1/4 x 5 1/2) sized cards. The third is a 4x4 notecard. These all came together quickly, and I do have a process video showing how I've made them below.

I've used Heidi Swapp's "Mixed Company" paper, and my Sizzix Big Shot machine to cut out the heart card front die. I adhered that down using wet glue. I then cut out the "Hello" from the Just A Note alphabet Thinlit die from Sizzix. Using a piece of paper from My Mind's Eye the Bramble & Rose collection I cut a strip, and added my "Hello" to it. I then added a few flourishes that were cut from the Silhouette Cameo, and a few of the layering hearts that come with that die...to the inside as well. The flower is one I made last week when I shared with you the Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms stamps & dies. I did cut four stamens from that die set, using the same Bramble & Rose collection. It then coordinated perfectly.

Using the same paper collection, this time I adhered this one down with pop dots, giving this card lots of dimension. I then used the Spellbinders Labels 40 die, and made a banner for the top of my card. I then added the word "thanks" using the Just A Note die, a small bow, and a flower. I love how quickly this card came together, but is so adorable.

 The final card I made is a notecard, 4x4. I used the same hearts, this time in white, on white cardstock. I then used a flower from the Arianna Blooms die, and a few leafs cut from the Cameo. I added a few pearls.

There's lots of ways you can use these dies. I hope you give them a try! Please check out Cut At Home's Blog for all the product codes, and lots of inspiration. If you sign up for their VIP account, you will receive special coupons & sales alerts.
