What did we do “before” the … BIGSHOT!?

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

What DID we ever do before we got out BigShots? Some of us did the fussy cutting and the dry embossing but it was a lot of work! Today I’m here with two great video’s that will explain how easy the BigShot is to use and some great tips! It will explain “when” to use each of the plates “magnetic” and “precision” and which cutting dies to use with them. Then I’ll share 3 cards that I had made.

Say hello to your crafty friend—the Big Shot. It’s a manual, multipurpose die-cutting system that you can use to quickly and easily create die-cut or embossed shapes, tags, and 3D items. It’s portable; no electricity required. And we offer a huge array of dies and accessories to make your crafting fun and easy. 

 

Flourish Thinlits Dies by Stampin’ Up!

My second video is a fabulously fun bundle to work with using your BigShot! Put down those scissors—there’s an easier way to cut detailed flowers and images! Using the Flourish Thinlits Dies and the Big Shot, you can make multiple die-cut flowers in minutes. Watch as we show you how.

Some of you already have this beautiful stamp set and thinlits but if you don’t, just click on the item’s picture below for full details and to begin your shopping.

Soar Above the Rest …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Yesterday I shared a trio of cards from our 2016 Holiday Stamping Retreat. Today I’d like to share a picture that I took during our retreat …

green-lake-balloon

Hmmm … why would I show that? Well, if you are a follower of my blog, you know that I spent last weekend with my downline, fellow demonstrators and Stampin’ Up! We did stamping, celebrating and …. Exploring the NEW Occasions catalog!!

Well … I can’t show you that right now, but I can give you a sneak peek, and when I do you will totally understand the correlation between the two!! 

img_1711

Oh wait … that’s not it either! Are you catching the “theme” of these photos yet? I am excited to introduce to you a Sneak Peek of the  “Lift Me Up!” bundle …

img_1685b

I can’t wait to share this awesome bundle with you … Isn’t this awesome!!  A fellow demonstrator created this card, many cards we displayed so that we can get a good look at the new goodies!

Thanks for dropping in today~

Hope your day finds you “Soaring Above the Rest!”

Star of Light Trio of Cards …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

First let me say “Happy Veterans Day” … a big THANK YOU to all our current and past military men and women who put their lives on the line, and those who sacrificed their lives so that we can enjoy the freedoms here at home. I U.

Today I want to share 3 beautiful cards that we made at our Annual Holiday Stamping Retreat featuring one of my favorite stamp sets from the Holiday Catalog … the Star of Light stamp set and Thinlits.

At Retreat and all my stamping events …. it is my mission to show the versatility of the stamp sets or bundles. Here we went from a simple card to beautiful elegance …

star-of-light-trio

Let’s begin with the center card, created using Elegant Eggplant and Wisteria Wonder. Simple but pretty and it highlights the stamps, ink and greetings with just a touch of bling to draw your eye to the focal point of the card, the star.

The card on the left uses Pool Party and Island Indigo a fun color combination turned elegant when we sponged the background and used the Silver Foil paper for our star, topped with a beautiful die cut. (This card was cased from a fellow demonstrator) I wish the photo would have reflected the silver so you could see how stunning it really is. We also used the new Metallic Enamel Shapes on the card which works so well with the Silver Foil paper … this was one of our “All attendee Gifts”(also known as Pillow Gifts as they get a package of goodies on their beds as a Thank You for joining us)

Our last card on the right seems to be everybody’s favorite. It was really quite simple to make, but so elegant when done in Very Vanilla and Basic Black.  The Enamel Shapes were also used on this card – the package comes with both Silver and Gold.  The designer paper we used comes from the Annual Catalog called “This Christmas”. It’s a specialty designer paper because it is a little thinner than our normal designer paper… but you get more!!

star-of-light-trio

I hope you enjoyed today’s card share, I would love it if you would please “LIKE” this post at the bottom if you did, and then tell me which one is your favorite!! The key ingredients to make these cards are listed below.

Thank you for spending a part of your Friday with me …

I hope you have a marvelous day!

A Special Note …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Happy Saturday … and for some of us, an extra long weekend! No work on Monday 🙂 Happy Face!!  I love when I can spend more time in my stamping room and play with my new stampin’ stuff.

Today, I have a beautiful card to share with you. We made this card during my “Floral Phrases” class. The focus of the class was to illustrate the different ways that you could use this awesome bundle.

This card was simple to make but looks extravagant. We begin with the Night of Navy cardstock – cut lengthwise. The inside white and white for the front are both cut at 4″ x 5-1/4″.

000_3623

Place one of the white sheets on the the New BigShot platform and topped with the Precision Base Plate. The Precision Base Plate will deliver improved performance with this detailed die, giving you the extra fine cut. Place each of the floral dies at the end of the cardstock … there will be a space between them.

Once cut, I used the Die Brush to remove the small cut pieces from the dies. I applied the cut piece to the front of the card using my Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped my greeting from the stamp set onto a 1″ strip of Whisper White and attached it directly to the card. Add a few Pearls and your done with the front … that quick and easy, with beautiful results.

000_3624

The inside of the card has a strip of the coordinating Designer Series Paper – Floral Boutique and another of the greetings/verses that come with the Floral Phrases stamp set. This is the first bundle that caught my eye when I first got my annual catalog … I love it!

Thanks so much for joining me today!

Have a wonderful day, and enjoy the beautiful sunshine (I hope it’s shining by you too).
