The other day I blogged about diecutting suede and I used a sixxix doll clothes die to dress Lucy McGoo.
Today, I decided to use 3 different sizzix dies in my Wizard to make a wonderful array of suede flowers. Sad to say the photos do not do these justice!
You can mix and match these in a nearly endless ways. For this one, I put the leather side up on the red, the suede side up on the blue and added Swarovsky crystals.
All 3 layers are suede side up for both of these:
Then I decided to try Art Institute glitter on them. These are tiny little dots of glue covered with glitter:
The green is free form Art Insitute Glitter. The red is Ranger's stickles covered with Art Insitute Glitter. Goes on a lot thicker.
Th gold dots are Art Institute Glitter. I just love all the different combinations you can get out of these 3 flowers:
Gold Swarovsky crystals, green Art Institute Glitter
Back to simple and plain. The sandwich for these in the Wizard is:
Universal adapter mat
Another thread of Art Institute Glitter
The red is leather side up. I really like this one!
Four layers of suede on this one, but what can I say...it's stunning!
Never toss out anything! Just cut it up and run it through your Wizard or other diecutting system! Recycle, Re-use, Re-purpose, Re-generate. And just look at what incredibly wonderful embellishments for some future project.
Got any blue suede shoes? They would work just fine!
