The "Big Shot" & Texture Plates

How did I ever make a card without the "Big Shot".   I have had more fun stamping & playing this week (of course all for my business, smiling!).  I was playing with the new texture plates, I used my brayer to ink up the texture plate with Cameo Coral Classic Ink and then put my Cameo Cardstock on the texture plate and ran it through the Big Shot.  Love the effect of this.


Have you checked out the individual stamps on page 208 of the Spring & Summer Idea Book & Catalog.  This is the Elegant Thank you which works perfectly with the square scallop punch.  I just love how so many of the Stampin' Up! products are designed to go together and make stamping so simply and fun.  Top it off with a Fire Rhinestone Brad and this card can be made in minutes. 

Check back tomorrow to see what has been transpiring in the soon to be Granddaughters Nursery!

This amazing little box is made with the Big Shot using the Bigz Box #2 Die.  It is so incredibly easy you just run the die through the box with your favorite cardstock, fold on the crease lines adhere on the side, tuck in the bottom flaps and in minutes you have this great little box. 

Is the Big Shot on your wish list, but don't know how to swing it... check out my club options for easy payment plan plus some great bonuses.  I only have 2 spots left in the club so don't wait to long.

Stampin' Up! Information Make & Take

For the past month Tom has had Friday's off, and how fun it has been to have three day weekends together.  He is my best friend and the only thing better would be if he would learn to love stamping as much as I do, then we could stamp our weekends away. 

He has enjoyed the benefits of my love of stamping on six Stampin' Up! incentive trips, the only stamping he has done was on those trips.  On the earlier cruises I earned they had a spouses event which included stamping.  I wanted to share with you his first work of stamped art that Tom stamped on our first  cruise.  The only other stamping he has done is at one of my opportunity nights, a long time hostess (Brenda) who came told him she would sign up to be a demonstrator if he stamped a card, he didn't hesitate a minute.  

For those of you who have been waiting to see Tom stamp, stop by my stampin' spot Wednesday Night February 21 at 6:30 to see this rare and awesome moment!  You may not get this chance again!  Just email me at [email protected] to have a little gift waiting for you when you arrive.
