Latest die cutting and embossing products enhance Alterations line creativity
LAKE FOREST, Calif. (May 6, 2014) – Adding further artistic relevance to the crafts market, Tim Holtz® has expanded his Sizzix®Alterations™ die cutting and embossing line with his newest product assortment.
Featuring a new concept in embossing, ShadowPress™ Debossing Folders create a visual debossed sentiment, mimicking the look of letterpress designs on cardstock, metallic foil, paper or vellum. Two sets of six A2 border folders, each measuring 5 3/4″ x 1 1/2″ x 1/8″, enhance cards, mixed media projects, tags and more with words such as “wonderful”, “good times”, “here & now” and “note2self.” The size of the folders allows crafters to place the sentiments vertically or horizontally on their projects, while using inks, markers or other color tools to fill in the drop shadows for bolder impressions.
“Tim continues to revolutionize the crafts market with innovative products like ShadowPress Debossing Folders that expand crafters’ creative options,” said Denzil Quick, Director of Product Development for Sizzix.
Among the other noteworthy offerings for Tim’s motorized Vagabond™ Machine for Sizzix are two Framelits™ die sets with coordinating rubber stamps to create circus and birthday elements; one versatile Framelits™ 8 pack die set for the ultimate tag enthusiast; three Sizzlits®Decorative Strips that die cut one new edgy alphabet; tattered miniature banners and a striking border of birds in flight; and three steel-rule Bigz™ dies with arrow, door and prize ribbon designs.
Armor Shield and Big Ticket Movers & Shapers™ Base Dies work seamlessly with moveable magnetic Movers & Shapers Insert Dies to customize mini Eiffel Towers, shields, trophies and prize ribbon designs from an assortment of material including cardstock, chipboard and grungeboard™ for endless possibilities. Completing the collection are Arrows & Boardwalk and Drapery & Woodgrain Texture Fades™ Embossing Folders Sets that incorporate stylish backgrounds into any mixed media project.
The May collection of Tim Holtz Alterations products is now available in local craft boutiques and major retail craft chains around the country. For more information, visit www.Sizzix.com/home.
