Cardmaker extraordinaire renews partnership with crafts market leader
LAKE FOREST, Calif. (Oct. 16, 2014) – Consumers can now create more inspired handmade cards using die-cutting machines and the new Stephanie Barnard® crafts collection for Sizzix®.
Versatility remains at the core of Stephanie’s latest product line that offers more design choices than ever with wafer-thin, chemically-etched Triplits™ die sets that cut, deboss or stencil an assortment of balloon, bee, Christmas tree, cupcake, gift, ornament and tag designs. Consumers can then layer, match, mix or stack the die shapes to create remarkable cards, scrapbook pages and mixed media projects.
“Consumers will be pleased with how seamlessly Stephanie’s products work together to create truly unique crafts projects,” said Susan Spiegel, Ellison Vice President, Marketing Communications.
Eight new Framelits Flip-its™, Framelits Stand-Ups and Framelits Step-Ups™ easily create fun, dimensional cards with stylish shapes to complement any occasion. A coordinating Framelits die set fashions intricate scallop circles for added embellishment. Ready to enhance any papercrafting project are five new Framelits die sets with corresponding stamps, three clear Sizzix stamp sets with charming sentiments and a single Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folders set with floral and trellis patterns.
“I’m so excited about my newest release with Sizzix which is all about fresh, fun and easy peasy designs!” said Barnard. “Crafters can easily flip, stand-up or step-up their cards to the next level!”
