Big Shot

I was actually playing with my new Big Shot the other day and this is the card that I made. I have seen a lot of samples with the Upsy Daisy stamp set and this die so I thought I would try. This die is one of the Sizzix Bigz dies that Stampin' Up is selling and it is exclusive to Stampin' Up! I have to say that this set (Upsy Daisy) has to be one of my favorites from the new catalog. I made this by stamping the flower image once and then stamping it a second time a little to the left of the first one and I didn't reink the stamp in between stamping the two images.

Supplies Used:

Stamps: Upsy Daisy

Ink: Riding Hood Red & Kiwi Kiss

Card Stock: Riding Hood Red, Whisper White & Kiwi Kiss

Acc: Big Shot & Bigz Top Note

Directions for Halloween Treat Holder

Ok, here goes I have never written instructions for these before but several people have asked so I thought I would try.
Begin by folding a 6 x 6 page in half--corner to corner; hold the now-triangle piece of paper so that the fold is at the bottom (first picture). Next take the point on your right and fold it so that it meets the midpoint of the opposite edge (see second picture). I made this step easier by measuring from the point down 2 1/2" and marked with a pencil so I knew where to fold the point to.
Fold the left point over to meet the right edge in a similar fashion (photo 3). On this my second point did not go all the way to the edge there was a small space. Now take one layer of the top point and fold it down over the front of the pouch (photo 4).
Add embelishments as you desire and this will hold a small cello bag.

Canvas Tote

This is the canvas tote bag I made for a friend of mine. I got the idea from one of the magazines that Stampin' Up! sends their demonstrators. I don't sew, I attached the ribbon with heavy duty hem tape and I was even able to tuck the ends in with the hem tape, you have to love that stuff. The only other supplies I used were the flower fusion flowers and the earth elements buttons. I think it turned out adorable.

Stamp Camp Project

This is another card that we made at the Flo Valley Stamp Camp. This was actually a card that we learned how to make at Convention. You start with the lightest color (Pink Pirouette) and ink the entire image. Then add more color with a sponge dauber. We used Tangerine Tango and Riding Hood Red. We also used the new 13/4" circle punch and the new Button Bouqet.
