Artist Trading Block Collaboration

In March 2015 we hosted a collaboration between our fantastic Design Team and the Inspiration Team over at Sizzix Die Designer Eileen Hull’s website.
We were so thrilled with the results that we thought we’d make a “forever” page of the projects.
You can view that page HERE and click on each one to be taken to that designers tutorial or blog post on the block she made.

The die we used makes a block like this –  (you can buy it online by clicking on the picture) –
It also has a magnetic opening in it so you can use any of your Movers and Shapers dies to cut out peek holes
in one or two sides of your cube. Super versatile!

We used the BEAUTIFUL Sizzix Matboard to create our blocks. It takes all kinds of stamping and ink just beautifully.
Our team used the cream (linked to the picture so you can buy online), but it also comes in white and black!
It’s sized perfectly to fit through your Sizzix Big Shot Die Cutting Machine.
