Fiskars Fuse Birds....

This was the die I couldn't wait to get when my Fuse arrived, I had fallen in love with this little bird. So, it's a bird die I hear you say......but look, see all the birds in the photo below? I cut them all with one pass of the machine, I think that's pretty remarkable - eight little birds cut out perfectly in a matter of seconds....



You get letterpress plates with the die, here's the letterpress birds.....


The first thing I did was a tag, I used some Tim Holtz papers....



I put the word MISS in tiny letter stickers and popped a film strip on top...


there was a bit of stenciling going on there as well.....


and a sprinkle of distress embossing powder 


Then I used some bright papers by The Paper Studio to make this card, I cut the branch by hand....


the stamp is also by Fiskars and followed the curve on the pattern paper ....


So I hope these posts have given you a bit of a glimpse of what this remarkable machine can do, watch out for a lot more in the near future, but for now, I need to get on with some magazine cards and catch up with my homework for the online stencil course. I am dashing around in ever decreasing circles here. What's on your desk?

See you tomorrow x

  4. Oh wow, 8 at once! Now that's spectacular! The die and the letter press too. How much are they? I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to afford them. Ah well, can't afford a new machine now anyway. lol I'm in the midst of a paper bag min that fits inside a candy box I got for Christmas. It's for a friend to use as sort of a brag book. Only it'll be too big for her purse. Any way, that's whats on my desk. Hugs, JEss

  8. Hi Enfys, wow 8 in one go that really makes things quick. I saw these bird dies and thought they were really cute. Do they work in the bigshot? as that is what I have. When I work out what's on my desk I'll let you know!! It's a bit of a pile at the moment.
