Sizzix orig. dies, people all dressed up

Hello again !!
This is one of my most favorite cards to make. It is an older die but I never run out of things to make with it.
I love using these dies for the younger kids and I even made them for my sons 6th grade teachers this past school year. I have a lot of different dies of outfits, sports, hair styles and faces. I have such a hard time giving them away once I have created my little people.
I hope you enjoy them !!

These are for two twins, they had a baseball birthday party and I used their favorite colors.
They turned 8 so that is why the number on the
shirts is an 8. I am also always very careful to choose the hair color and style that fits them the closest. And details like if they are right or left handed. etc.

Maya and Antonio both  have
June birthdays and usually have
a pool party. She loves pink and
has blonde hair.

This is for my niece Taylor who got a scholarship
to Sacramento State College for softball. She is a pitcher and her number is 14. These are Satco's uniform colors. I starter out with the hair with two pig tails and realized she only wears one now as she is older.

 So in the final project I cut one pig tail off and added a ribbon in her hair.
 Mr. Chan was a high school football coach and I used the school colors and his nick name Chan the man.
 These are the cards I made for my son Steven's 6th grade
teachers last school year for thank you's.

This one was for his language arts teacher.
 Career, he is thinking he may want to be a lawyer, and it is made
to look like my son.

Science, looking like there was an explosion with his
experiment. And look at that great face and embossing folder.
 His PE teacher whom is also the school tennis coach.
 Social studies, the kids had to do a current event
report every week, and traveled around the world
to different places. The shirts are also the school
colors and the lettering is for Windsor Middle School.
 Math, and his teacher wore a Hawaiian button down shirt every Thursday.

Spanish, I love that you can cut off the lower part
of the person if it does not fit in your project and it
looks like it was meant to be that way. I love the
sombrero and the flag and of course the face.
 This is for Antonio when he turned 9. He plays soccer  and
black and red is his favorite colors.
 Maya again for her 6th birthday who loves everything pink
and loves her dancing. I love how the stickles and the pearls
finish and complete the card.
 I needed some boy cards and decided to make some baseball
ones. I left the shirt blank so you can put a number sticker for
the age of the child. And you can again change the hair to
which ever color you want. And I always love the cute little
faces. Sizzix has both face stamps and rub ons. And again
I have many different sports so I can do football, soccer,
basketball. You get the picture !! They also make and I have
a police man, scuba diver, fireman, karate, a pirate, you name
it they make it.  I buy a lot of my Sizzix stuff on
outlet store. There are so many things for $15.00 and most
of the ones I buy are under $5.00 each. Love to shop there.
I just love their faces, looking so happy. And hand cutting out
the grass then adding texture to it with an embossing folder.
I also love the happy birthday punches, I use them on so many
of my cards. When I sell the cards I usually put in a couple of
different sayings so people can have a choice and just replace
the sentiment . The punches are from Stampin Up and they sell
a set of stamps that fit just perfect in the little oval area and I
usually ink around the outside area of the saying, it really helps
pop it out and makes it look even more finished.

 This one my son made for my parents for a thank you for his school money they gave him. He picked
out the pants, shirt and shoe colors to match the
clothes he bought with the money. I thought it was the cutest idea and my parents loved the card.
 I have one nice lady that buys cards from me for just about every
occasion and below I made a card with her granddaughter's picture on it with her favorite colors being pink and purple. Then I decided to make a free standing little girl to match the card. I cut
the person out just short of the die cut at the head to make her be
able to stand and had the card stock folded in half like making a card. I decided to make her in two different outfits one matches the colors and materials of the original card with the picture and the other in her favorite colors. I love the finishing touches of the flowers and the pearls on her, and not to mention her cute little face and the pearls on her shoes.
 These little girls were so much fun, Grandma asked me if I would make one for her also so she could keep one at her house also.
 This is just a side view to see how she stands.
This is the original card I made for her with the picture on it.
