A bit of Spring in Autumn with Lilith
Autumn has settled in and the crisp air and warm colours have taken over the the country side. I love autumn but I still hunger for a tiny bit of spring. The Sizzix Framelits Die Set 8PK with Stamps Beautiful You, was just the product I needed for this easy card project that brings a bit of spring along with it.I stamped one of the flower images onto some watercolour paper, using versamark. I then sprinkled some white embossing powder onto it which I then heat embossed with my heat gun. I then took out some Distress Inks, stabilo pens and coloured the flowers and leaves.The cards themselves were easy to put together. A 4" x 6" base with a 3.5"x5.5" piece of patterned paper. A kraft tag, a small white twine, some embellishments and a sentiment finish off the card. I love how easy the stamps are to use and that I can use any colour for any type of project.Supplies:Sizzix Framelits Die Set 8PK with Stamps Beautiful YouDistress Inks, Stabilo 68 pens,Paper: Carta Bella,Embellishments: Studio Calico Color Theory Buttons, Enamel dots,Ink: Versafin Black Onyx..

Simple goes far ... by Lilith
When I got my Big Shot it came with a Bigz die (Basic Shapes). I use it all the time. For this layout I started off with some stamping and made a feature of the stamped images by highlighting them with enamel dots. Then I cut out a heart from some Heidi Swapp 6*6 paper which I placed to the side of the stamping. Then I cut out the shapes using the Bigz Die which I used as embellishments.

Embossed details with Lilith
I started by choosing some grey cardstock that would work with some grey patterned paper. I picked a couple of embossing folders and embossed several strips of the grey cardstock and patterned paper. These strips are the base of the layouts. On top I added my photo and a cluster of embellishments.
To create a sense of movement and flow I placed some embossed butterflies. They also help draw the eye towards the photo. I love having a closer look at the layout to see the embossed details.
I hope you'll get your folders out and emboss pretty details onto some paper.

Layers with Lilith
I used a scrap piece of white cardstock and the smile embossing folder from the Smile & Plus set. I added some splashes of mist to draw attention to the detail of the embossing. You could also use watercolours and go over the embossed areas.Then I stamped with a stamp from the Hello Framelits Die Set with stamps and cut it out using the die. I also cut out some leaves from the Tim Holtz collection which I coloured with green and blue tones using watercolour paint.Then I layered the different elements adding embellishments along the way. I love how the cluster of papers and the photo just pops off the layout. To create flow and movement I decided to incorporate a couple of buttons and enamels dots.

Hello from Belgium
Hello Sizzix followers. I am thrilled to be a part of this amazing team. I will be here every Tuesday with inspiration using the Sizzix products. My name is Lilith and I live in the South of Belgium. I am a language teacher and in my free time I love to scrapbook. I love creating layouts but also enjoy making mini books and the occasional card. I hope my work will inspire you. As today is my first day as a Sizzix blogger, I thought I'd show you some previous projects created with some of the sizzix dies and embossing folders.
One of my favourite dies is this doily that I used on the layout below. It is so pretty and dainty.Another of my favourites is the 659436 :Sizzix Bigz Die - Garden Greens. If I could I'd add leaves to all my layouts.See you next week with a new layout.Lilith
