I've purposely tried NOT to show you anything with the Big Shot Fun Flowers die because it's so popular that Stampin' Up! is having a hard time keeping up with filling the orders!  They'll be shipping them out in early May, but if you want to get on this list, I'd order one now before the Occasions Mini catalog is over at the end of this month!

Love it!  Click 4 close up

This also has one of the more subtle sheets from the Paisley Prints Designer Series Paper.  It's that River Rock color behind the Top Note Die. We tried to get a good shot of it twice, but it's hard to see the delicate pattern – delecate almost like a Pomeranian

To make that cool flower, we got some plastic wrap & lightly "sponged" on some of the Frost White Shimmer Paint #116854 onto Whisper White cardstock.  After it dried, we brayered on Elegant Eggplant to match the Top Note.  It's a kind of resist technique that really pops!

There's a lot of cool stuff going on here with the greeting from the All Holidays stamp set, Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder #115964 & Two Step Bird Punch for the leaves.  And don't get me started on the heat embossing & those cool Antique Brads we love so much!!

Doesn't it just make you want to have it all?  It's the kind of rich & duplicatable card we feature in the Make A Card Today Program.

It's a great time to be the blog dog of a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.

  1. Ann,

    Super terrific idea, I’m gonna figure out how to attach my scissors too! I think a simple knot will do. Thanks for the inspirational video’s and great stamping ideas!

    — Hugs, Loretta R.

  2. Appreciate the restraint in using the die right now. It’s like getting raspberried from the demos that are currently featuring it a lot. “Nya-nya, I got mine; too bad for you.”

    On a positive note, I love the ribbon on ribbon effect. It’s subtle but very lovely.
