Jewelry making with the help of Sizzix

So, I've posted multiple projects using my Sizzix dies and products. But did you know you can also use them to make jewelry!? If you follow me on Instagram you already know I've spent the day making jewelry. And, I had to share my last piece of the day with you here!

I used my Big Shot and Vintaj products from Sizzix to make this!!
  

Handmade charms like this are super easy thanks to Sizzix and Vintaj!
I began by placing the Vintaj Vintage Embroidery Deco Etch die on my Big Shot platform. Then I placed a Vintaj brass blank on it. I added the top plate and ran it through the machine.


 This is the result:


Now, a little sanding and polishing with the Metal Reliefing Block and it goes from blank brass circle to gorgeous charm:


I added a little color with my Clearsnap Caribbean Surfacez ink:


Add it to a Vintaj chain along with plain and wire wrapped beads and there you have it!

Wishing for Spring--Flower Gatefold Card

Here in Missouri winter just keeps going and this girl is anxiously awaiting spring!

Today I made a bright and fun gate-fold card with thoughts of sunshine and flowers using my Sizzix Gatefold Flower die along with some Core'dinations Brights cardstock and Honeycomb Texture Fades embossing folder.




I began with a 6" x 12" piece of bright yellow cardstock and die-cut the card base.



That both cut and scored the card base so it simply needed folded along the score lines to create the base of the card.



Nex,t I die-cut the same piece in bright pink and cut off the ends.



I used my embossing folder to emboss a pattern onto the end pieces.



Then I sanded them to show the added texture.



Next, I attached the pieces to my card base using some thin Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L® 3D-foam squares.



I attached the yellow die-cut half circles to the center of the card.



Finally I added a Fancy Pants Designs metal flair button (only adhere on the left side) and a couple of orange strips to add contrast. Here's another loo at the final results
