Goodmorning Stampers,

Well this must be a week of big shot projects for me!

I just had to have this new die...there are so many possibilities with it. here are two of them.

I used the thoroughly modern DSP,rich razzleberry, chocolate chip and whisper white. I cut a butterfly with the beautiful butterflys die and then stamped it with flight of the butterfly in rich razzleberry
The sentiment is from great friend.

I also used the lots of tags die and the large oval and scallop oval punches.

For this bag I used the thoroughly modern DSP rich razzleberry and wild wasabi for the leaves. The ribbon is also rich razzleberry!
This die can be either a box or a bag and has the score marks to help you along. It is just the cutest little thing!!!

Hello Stampers,
I have been having so much fun playing with my new things! I just love all the big shot supplies and ofcourse I had to have everything the minute I saw it. This card came out of scraps that i had used for another card and it just came to life from there.
I used the Thanks embosslit die , soft suede, rich rasberry and thoroughly modern DSP.
I also used the new texturz plate Perfect Details and then put a white polka dot with my white gel pen to give it alittle more dimension. I also cut the paper along the diamond design for an added detail.
Here is a closer look of the embosslit. I took my soft suede pad and brushed it on top to make the details pop!

Good morning stampers!
Here is a project that my club did this weekend.
I used the big shot box #2 die for the inside of the tote and then we traced the cupcake onto the DS paper and cut it out. We attached it to the box and added some ribbon to carry the tote. The notecards used the big shot birthday die and DS paper. I made them simple but they came out cute!
The paper is retired Banbury DSP and the notecards are also retired, they were the scallop notecards from the last catalog. The sentiment is from the stamp set Wow Flowers.

Here's a close up of the tote!

Hi there stampers,
So I am finally feeling alittle better! Yeah for me! I actually got busy stamping right away this morning. I absolutely love doing these sketch challenges from Stamping 411.

I used the Kind and Caring Thoughts stamp set, I think it is one of my favorite hostess sets from the new catalog!
I used not quite navy and bermuda bay CS and ink. The bermuda bay polka dot ribbon, large oval punch and scallop oval punch. I also took the ink and used the direct to paper tech to give some extra color to the layers.
Oh and my favorite bling!! I used stickles for the glitter on the flowers!

Here is a really pretty notecard holder with matching cards inside. This would make a great stamp camp project. Its not difficult and turns out very nice looking.
I used chocolate chip and whisper white CS and the DSP is bella birds (which I will miss, it is a very delicate pattern)

The cards are just the pattern paper layered on whisper white. I used the big shot scallop circle from the pendant die and cut out the butterfly to make it pop out.
