In'spire Bird Stand Handmade Card

Hello! Today I am working with In'spire "Bird Stand" die by Spellbinders. This is a fun die of a deer head with antlers , and birds and leaves on the antlers.  The inspire line are Shapeabilities dies made of steel with a focus on jewelry and mixed media. 
I wanted to create a card that focused on this beautiful die. Along sides it  I am using Kaisercraft's Blubelle Clear Stamp. So let's get started
1. Select your background paper, I am using a kraft card, dimensions 4.25 in. X 5.25 in.
2.Using your Sizzix Big Shot, cut the "Bird Stand" from white card stock.
3.  Using the stencil left from the cutting the die, place on the center of the card and sponge Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen to create a shadow.
4. With foam adhesives, glue die over the shadow of the "bird stand".
5.  Kaisercraft's Blubelle stamps have several non holiday sentiments, select one and stamp on your card using Hero Arts Pigment Ink in Unicorn.

How To Make A Shaker Card Using Die-Versions Frame Die!

Hello! Today we are working on a fun shaker card using the gorgeous Die-Versions "Hello" Sweet Frame. Lately, I been wondering how to make a window card, and when I saw this frame on the Cut@Home site, I could not resist! So let's get started!
Using your Sizzix Big Shot, cut your frame. (I must say a clean and crisp cut the first time!). Next trim your background paper, .25 inches smaller than your card and adhere.
Now to the window:
By using a clear envelope you can cut it fit within the frame, then using a stapler OR adhesive proceed to close the sides. Before it is all sealed, add your choice of items such as sequins, or glitter and seal the bottom. Glue the envelope to back of the frame.
Finally glue your finished window to your card.
Here is a step-by-step video of this project and I have demonstrated how to use Die-Versions dies on the Sizzix Big Shot.
