Red Solo Cup Flowers

Wanna know what else your Big Shot can be used for?


RED SOLO CUP FLOWERS!!!


Seriously! I made this hate below out of the Bigz Island Floral Die & the Big Shot!


My boss Marlene hates the new song, "Red Solo Cup" so in honor of her birthday we completely decorated her desk with Red Solo Cups.

Be Mine

I love techniques and when I saw this one on Pinterest (yes, it IS addicting!), I had to try it out. I've seen cards like this before but honestly, the concept is a little overwhelming with all the cutting involved. This one looked pretty simple though so I gave it a whirl.

Can you guess what punch I used for the large heart? The Ornament Punch! :) I just snipped a V to create the rounded edges. The Very Vanilla Ribbon was sponged with Crumb Cake ink and the result is a lovely champagne color. :)

I'm not quite sure why the pink in this picture is so bright compared to the pink in the other picture. The top picture actually is the color of the patterned paper.
Challenges:
Supplies: All Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Pretty In Pink
Paper: Designer Series Patterned Paper in Pretty in Pink
Ink: Crumb Cake
Stamp: Candy Conversations
Accessories: Scallop Trim Border Punch, Very Vanilla Silk Ribbon
Have a fab day!

"Pinterest"ing

I've joined the ranks of Pinterest peeps! ;) Actually my initial thought was to put up a "wish list" of things I would like so my SIL would know exactly what to get me for Christmas. ;) She always asks me for a list and I always forget to give her one. This way I just toss in some fun things I'd like and she can look to see what I'm wishing for! :) Anyways while I was browsing, I found this cute pouch! I had to make my own, for sure!

Do you know what my banner is made out of? The cupcake liner part of the Build-a-Cupcake punch!!! Cute huh? I'm just all about that Silver Glimmer Paper right now! LOVE! IT!

Of course, some little Ghiradelli's inside for the recipient! :)
Supplies: All Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Whisper White
Paper: Designer Series Patterned Paper in Mambo Melon, Silver Glimmer Paper
Stamps: Word Play
Ink: Versamark
Accessories: Shimmer Paint, Mini Clothespins, Whisper White Baker's Twine, Scallop Border Punch, Decorative Label Punch, Build-a-Cupcake Punch

I hope you had a fantastic Christmas & wonderful New Year! It's the time for new beginnings but how about some new uses for items you have?
