Blog Hop: Big Shot Promotion

This is super exciting! I honestly can't remember what I did without my Big Shot and I am so thrilled about this sale (way below). I may not use it for every project but it is so nice to have on hand for so many different things. You should definitely have one.

If you are unfamiliar with the Big Shot here is a great video by Stampin' Up!:
It shows several different ways to utilize the Big Shot.

This card was made using both a Textured Impressions TM Embossing Folder and  Framelits TM. I admit that it took me several tries to get it right but I was stamping in a hurry. I even messed up the Stamp-a-ma-jig placement twice but I didn't burn the brownies and they were a nice reward. The outer floral has been lifted with Stampin' Dimensionals and the piece behind it is stamped on a punched circle. 

I was inspired by a card my friend shared with me that was made by Natasha Schwecke. Her card was a little different in the middle. 

This is a Textured Impressions TM Embossing Folder sampler that I got at an event I went to during the week of Convention. Now I have a great way to show my friends all of the different textures that they can add to their projects.

  1. haha- glad the brownies turned out! :) I love the embossing on just the middle of the card and the pearls are a great touch. That embossing sampler is clever! Great idea!!

  2. I like the blue you in the center, it really pops! I also really like the embossing folder sampler. That is a great idea.

  3. Isn't it interesting that you, Jeanna and Cheryl all use the same stamp set, yet all the projects are very different!! Well done! I want to do one of those samplers at Pam's one of these days!


Thank you for your positive thoughts.
