Gertrude the Giraffe ... Colorize Thinlits - Die Cutting Templates by Tim Holtz and Sizzix (no. 664429).
Gertrude the fun and quirky giraffe simply loves to be part of all things papercraft, mixed media and other visual arts. No rules, just art :) Don't forget with Thinlits, you can create them to face either direction you choose! Perfect for cardmaking, journals, planners, mixed media and more. Have fun!
This set of die cutting templates uses the intricate yet simple Colorize technology from Tim Holtz that takes the guesswork out of creating multiple layers. Theodore the Bear Thinlits Die Set is a detailed paper-layering project which enables you to create more dimensional and professional designs than ever before!
Each base shape has crease blades identifying where to place layers, before adding your mid-tone and highlight dies. Each element is labelled to take the guess work out of placing shades, enabling you to create amazing multi-faceted layered artwork easier than ever before.
This set contains 9 templates.
Sizes : Gertrude stands approx 10" or 25.4cm tall.
Imagine adding many layers into your project that give the appearance that you've spent hours fussy cutting with scissors. That's what Thinlits can do :)
Handy Tip : layer a sheet of double sided adhesive to the back of your white mixed media or watercolour cardstock before cutting out. Then simply colour each piece. Alternatively, cut them out of coloured paper. The adhesive backing saves heaps of time when placing all the pieces.
Thinlits die cutting templates are wafer thin, chemically etched, metal templates designed to cut, emboss or stencil a single sheet of cardstock, paper, fine metallic foil or vellum.
Because of their intricate details, Thinlits may require up to three passes to cut. If extra help is needed for easier separation of the die-cut shape from the template, place wax paper between the Thinlits die and your material and then roll through your preferred machine.
Use with any Sizzix die cutting and embossing machines (eg, all Big Shots, Foldaway, Express and Vagabond) and is compatible with most hand-turned machines (eg, Cuttlebug or Spellbinders) but not the Sizzix Sidekick. Check with your machine for which plates to use. All machines sold separately!
Thinlits are also able to emboss when combined with an Impressions Pad and Silicone Rubber sheet (it presses rather than cuts due to the less pressure). Try misting the paper lightly with water for a deeper impression.
To stencil, trace around the shapes with pen, pencil or ink. Apply ink to the die cutting edges to print and emboss at the same time.
This set includes a handy plastic storage envelope. For easy identification, slip the printed label into the envelope with the dies.
