Big Shot

Lovely Words, Seasonal Layers and Birds and Blooms

Today's card was created as a make and take for an online meeting I had with my team.  It was made using only thinlits and framelits.  I sent out all the die cut pieces and card stock so they could complete the card with me.

Are you wondering where I used the VersaMark, Clear embossing powder, and Dazzling Diamonds glitter?  I used it to make the Powder Pink flowers a little glittery.  I mixed the Dazzling Diamonds glitter and embossing powder together to create a mix I call Glittery Goodness.  The ratio is one part embossing powder to one part glitter.

Flourish Thinlits in Blushing Bride

Just a quick post to share another variation of the card I posted here.  I used basically the same layout in a different color scheme.

More with the Baker's Box

Need to make a quick sweet treat for Valentine's  day?  Look no further than the Baker's Box thinlits die.

Baker's Box Valentines

Yes, those are chocolate lips in the box!  This is similar to the box I shared a few days ago.  This time I used one of the dies that come with the Baker's Box die set to create the window.   This box also has a hanging note.

Baker's Box Valentines back

If you missed seeing how I created the note holder, you can check it out here.  This hanger is just a little different.  I cut the opening directly on the box and pasted the red opening piece over the hole on the box.

My very clever team member, Laurie saw this and thought it would also make a cute bank.  Isn't that a great idea?   If you need any supplies to make your own fun Baker's Box, just click on any of the links below.  Thank you!

Baker's Box and a Hanging Note Card

You know I enjoy participating in challenges and when I saw the Stampin' Royalty Challenge #314 I knew I had to play along.  

Stampin' Royalty SR #314

Their inspiration photo is amazing, it makes me so happy.  

What to make with this awesome photo inspiration?  So many possibilities!  I decided to make a box since it has been a while since I have shared a packaging idea.  

Baker's Box Flower

I used the flower from the Crazy About You stamp set and stamped it in Real Red ink on Real Red card stock.  The flower is punched out using the Flower Medallion punch.  I did do some fussy cutting to make the smaller flowers, fortunately the stamp has easy to follow lines to help me cut.

After I made the box I started thinking about adding a note card or tag.  I wanted it to be attached to the box and this is what I came up with.  I am pretty excited about this.

Baker's Box back

Do you want to know how I made this?  Hopefully you said yes cause I am going to show you!

Baker's Box note holder

This little die is part of the Baker's Box thinlits.  You can use it to cut out handles to the top of the Baker's Box.  It can also be used to hang a little note card.   I cannot decide which is easier to cut the die first and then cut it to the right size (3/8" x 2") or cut the card stock first(as shown in the picture).  

Baker's Box note holder 2

This is what you will end up with.  Apply some glue to the top portion and the sides but not along the bottom. 

Baker's Box side back

You slip your little note card through the slit and the bottom of the hanger.  The little note card measures 1-1/2" x 3" .  The "thanks" is also from the Crazy About You stamp set.  Pretty cool huh?

Feel Goods and the Project Life Cards and Labels Framelits

I was without internet this morning and have been on the go all day.  My fitbit says I have gone 18,815 steps so far today.  I am finally getting the chance to sit down and work on my blog post for the day (19 days in a row and counting!).  This is going to be a quick post  since we are leaving for dinner in just a few minutes.  

Feel Goods frame

This card is similar to this one that I posted earlier.  This time I used the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits to make the frame.

I can see a lot of uses for this frame.  I love how it shows off the sentiment.  Another quick and easy card for you.  Hopefully, I won't have any internet difficulties tomorrow and I will be able to post earlier in the day.

Back to Black Petite Purse and More

This week's Weekly Deal features the Petite Purse die.  When I saw this die on the deal it reminded me that I have not played with it in quite a while.   The die makes a super cute little purse,  it is VERY easy to put together, and it only takes 1/2 sheet of card stock.   Yes, super easy and cute what more could you ask for?  

Back to Black Petite Purse Die

Wouldn't this make a great favor?  I would love to see a whole line up of little purses filled with a little treat.   Perfect for a luncheon, meetings or anytime you want to give a little something to someone.

Back to Black petite pursed die side

Here's another sweet little purse idea for you.  Again, super easy and fun!

Hello Kitty Petite Purse die

Isn't she sweet?   Her bow is made of 2 hearts and a circle from the Owl Builder punch,  her eyes are  a 1/4" circle hole punch, and her nose is the cherry minus the stem from the cupcake builder punch.  Wouldn't she be a great favor for a little or big girl party?

I am getting ready for the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop scheduled to go live at midnight!  Have a great day and check back for the blog hop and more fun stamping ideas!

 


A Quick Hi!

 This is going to be a quick blog post!  It is a beautiful bright sunny day, one of those days that makes you remember why you live here and put up with all the rain.  I'm itching to go out and enjoy the sunshine BUT  before I do  I promised myself I would get at least half of my taxes done.  I know that was a crazy promise to make!  Note to self, check the weather report next time I plan an indoor activty. So, I am really just stopping by to say "Hi", just like my card!

Weekly Deals

In all the Sale-A-Bration excitement I forgot to share with you this week's deal!  

Weekly deal  1-28 thru 2-3

There are 2 items on this deal that I really adore.  Can you guess what they are?  If you have stamped with me recently you would know of my love of everything Pool Party.  This week's deal has the Pool Party  ink pad on sale for $4.46!   If you do not have one already you need to jump on this deal.  Remember the deal expires on February 3.

Do you know what the other items I adore is?  Here's a big hint.

Flower Garden embossing folder

Yup, it is the Flower Garden Embossing folder!  Here I inked up the folder with Calypso Coral ink and then embossed it.   

I don't think I shared with you another cool new addition to the Big Shot family,  the Textured Boutique Embossing Machine.  Quite  a mouthful for a tiny machine.   You can use any of the different embossing folders with this machine.  It is a specialist and only embosses.  It is compact enough to be able to have apermanent place on your stamping table and easy to take with you!

Demoheader_textureboutique_demo_jan28_en_na-eu-sp

 

The order number is 132657 and is $29.95.  Just think if you purchase this embossing specialist and 3 embossing folders you would not only have a great assortment of textures but you would also qualify for a FREE Sale-A-Bration choice.   It just keeps getting better!  Let me know if I can help you with this or any of your stamping needs.
