Welcome to another week here at StampinByHannah! There are some great projects coming this week.
To set the week off I decided to say Thanks! using the Hello You Thinlits Dies (that come bundled with the Crazy About You stamp set)
This card is a CASE (copy and share everything) from the Stampin’ Up! Spring/Summer catalogue page 23. Using the Petal Potpourri stamp set, and that lovely doily print flower (LOVE it!).
The card base is So Saffron, with a piece of Whisper White added at an angle.
I stamped the flower twice on a piece of Whisper White, using Crumb Cake ink, and punched them out with the Flower Medallion Punch before cutting them in half.
The ‘Thanks’ is die cut using those lovely framelits in Pear Pizzazz cardstock, using the Big Shot. Stampin’ Up! Transfer Adhesive Sheets are definitely the best things to stick these die cut words on with.
The Big Shot! I don’t think I’ve talked about the Big Shot before have I? I might have mentioned it briefly I suppose. The Big Shot is one of the greatest tools as a card-maker, I use mine all the time! The Big Shot is a manual Die Cutting machine, meaning that it uses Dies to cut shapes from cardstock (or fabric, fun foam, paper, felt, and a host of other materials). Stampin’ Up! sell the Big Shot and a whole heap of accessories, including the Magnetic Platform (which hold onto your metal dies, allowing you to line up stamped images and your dies without using bits of tape!), spare cutting mats, Dies and Embossing Folders. The Spring/Summer catalogue features a lot of new dies and embossing folders for use with your Big Shot, and makes a Big Shot a worthwhile investment.
At this point I felt that the card was a little too plain, and so added some more of the Petal Potpourri Doilies in Crumb Cake stamped off once to finish.
