Last Chance for Easy Big Shot Flowers

Click for Close Up Remember this card?  We moved the butterfly & it made all the difference!

Tomorrow is the last chance for you to get the Stampin' Up! Loopy Flowers Sizzlet Decorative Strip Die #113455.  My friend Karen swears by it because you can made a bouquet of flowers in minutes!

And tomorrow's the last day that you can get free shipping on your dies if you bought a Big Shot from Ann during this catalog year.

I've taken some pictures of Ann making this so that you can see how easy it is.  Just click on any of the pictures for a close up so that we can save room for the important stuff – my barks!

First, you need to run the colors through separately.  For this card, we used Old Olive Designer Series Paper (DSP).  That's sold out, but you can still get Certainly Celery DSP #112154 (the same color as the solid cardstock.

1The flowers are in Real Red, Crushed Curry #115319 (RETIRING @ 50% OFF!), Ballet Blue #100613 (Retiring & GREAT for snowflake cards).  You'll want to run the Real Red & Ballet Blue through the die separately.

Mount the DSP onto the card front.  I like Ann to use the Tombow Mono Multi Glue #110755 on this.  Only the vine parts have to be complete so you can run a pretty narrow strip through to save paper.

Use a 3/4" Circle Punch #107217 to punch out the Crushed Curry  LoopyFlowersHow-3 circles.  We put a little SNAIL adhesive down to hold them in place until I had Ann put a couple Stampin' Up! Stampin' Dimensionals #104430 on to hold the circle on & attach it to the front of the card.

Then line it up on the card over the corresponding flower so you can hide the evidence. 

LoopyFlowersHow-5 One or more of your cards might grow off the edge.  For these I like to use Stampin' Up! Sticky Strip #104294 to hold the circle & flower to the front of the card.

Last OneBy now you can tell that I'm a bit of an adhesive snob.  It's just like fertilizer.  Put the right type & the right amount & your flowers will grow how you want them.

And here's a BIG hint for success.  Cards may look pretty in a picture when they go off the edge, but in the real world, they need to fit in an envelope!  I had Ann trim this off so she wouldn't have to make a special sized envelope for it.  (Or you could make the card smaller).

I hope you like this easy project.  That Big Shot machine was named after me & is a must for ALL you stampers!  Need something from the catalog?  Shop here!

  1. Yes, I like the project with pictures showing how you had Ann do it. And, I would like to see more of them. I am also an adhesive snob–you just have to use the correct adhesive or your card will fall apart. It was great of you to point out how many adhesives SU has for us to use and how to use them.
