A fun time with the Big Shot

On Tuesday I had a few of my hostesses over to have a look at some of the new products from the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue, which is just jam packed with lots of new product which I just know you are going to fall in love with.

We had a couple of hours of crafting, coffee and chocolate...and a few laughs. It was a very enjoyable way to spend a Tuesday.

These are three projects that they were able to make:

A cute little gift bag made with the Big Shot and the Top Note and Movers & Shapers Curly Label Dies and the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. All three are exclusive to Stampin' Up!.

And you know one of the best features of the Curly Label Die  - it coordinates with the Cute & Curly Punch Bundle. Good thinking Stampin' Up!

The  bag was made from Melon Mambo cardstock, one of the new In Colours. Of course we just had to use the Melon Mambo Classic Stampin' Ink Pad and Polka-Dot Ribbon too.

We used the Very Vintage Jumbo Wheel for the background and the large flower from Vintage Vogue and one large Clear Rhinestone Brad. I gave each lady a small empty cello bag to use with their gift bag once they decided who they were going to give it to. The gift will show through the curly window of the bag. How cute is that!

This was a VERY simple small gift card using the new Extra Large Two-Step Bird Punch, which at $30.95 is a steal! When you punch your paper you actually end up with 3 images, so you can mix and match paper colours and textures to suit. You could even use the images separately.

We used Basic Black for the bird and inked the edge of its wing with Whisper White and adhered it with a Stampin' Dimensional.  And yes - you are correct - we have used Melon Mambo again..... Don't you just love that colour!

This card was made using the Cottage Wall DSP and Rich Razzleberry Cardstock. The Inks were in Old Olive, Orchid Opulence and the new Rich Razzleberry.  The greeting was stamped with Heard from the Heart and the flower with Cottage Garden (which coordinates with the Cottage Wall DSP and Flower Fantasy Printed Window Sheets)

All the stamp sets we used were the new Clear Mount stamps. Made it VERY easy to see where we were stamping and still produced the great sharp image that you expect from Stampin' Up!.

I hope you like these projects. If you are interested in making any of them, or in getting "up close and personal" with the Big Shot, then just call me on 9727 3992 or email me at
