November Stamp Club Projects!
We made these two projects using the Big Shot this month at Stamp Club!
The first was a Snowflake Ornament. We ran some thick glitter felt (it's hard to see how sparkly it is in the photo) along with the large snowflake die Stampin' Up! carries through the Big Shot. Then we tied some silver cord at the top to hang it from. Next, we embossed the snowman from the stamp set, Mr. Twigster (in the Holiday Mini Catalog), using a Black Craft Pad and some Clear Embossing Powder. We used a circle punch to cut him out. We punched out a larger circle out of Brushed Silver cardstock to mount him on. We attached the snowman on both sides of the ornament using glue dots. Then he was ready for the tree! You could also attach this to a present or gift bag or even insert a picture of your child or pet in the center instead of the snowman! So many possibilities!
The second project we made was a card featuring a dove and the word Peace. We used the Big Shot three times for this project--all three dies are Stampin' Up! exclusives dies! We used the Top Note die for the background, the Birds & Blooms die for the dove, and the Decorative Strip Join in the Cheer die--cutting out the word Peace only for this card. We used the Pocket Silhouettes Stamp Set to stamp the flowers at the bottom using a White craft ink pad and Baja Breeze classic ink pad. I was inspired by a card I saw on Splitcoaststampers! I love the simplicity of this card--so pretty and elegant yet so easy to create!
