Scribbles Swirls Sizzlit Die


A couple of days ago I promised I would show you how to use the Scribbles Swirls die to create Rhinestone swirls in your projects.  You can see the swirl in this post.  Here's a card I made using the technique.

Here's a closer look at the Rhinestone swirl.

When you run the die through the Big Shot you end up with two pieces of cardstock - the swirly bits that you use on your projects and the piece you would normally throw away.  Don't throw it away! This is the template you use for your swirls.

I place the template on the card where I want the swirl to be and then start filling it with Rhinestones.  I use a medium sized Rhinestone in the blobby bit at the end of the swirl and the smallest Rhinestones in the rest of the swirl.

In the above example I have used the individual Rhinestones and spaced them a little as I went.  In the swirl here I have used the Rhinestone strips for a more decadent look. 

Here's the inside of the card.  I love that cute little ladybug stamp!

I have a layout for you on Saturday that also uses the Scribbles Swirls Sizzlit.  I am using this die on EVERYTHING right now!  I hope you can come back for a look.

Catch you later,
