Have you bought a Big Shot yet?

I Love my Big Shot. I own two of them. One for home and one extra for when I do home shows and events. It is a wonderful tool to create amazing things. I use mine at least several times a week. I am more then likely to be inspired to create a project after playing with this tool. Over the years, I have posted lots of Big Shot projects on my blog. You can see them by going to the lower right of my blog in the tag section.

 Do you have Cuttlebug cutting or embossing type tool? How about upgrading to the Sizzix Big Shot today.

I am sharing this great video from Stampin’ Up!® that gives you a reason why you probably need to get one:

The Big Shot Tool is $110.00 through Stampin’ Up! Add a few items to your Shopping cart-say enough for $150.00 show and you can get at least $15.00 in Free merchandise. Maybe get a framelit set or a few Embossing folders. Do we need a reason to shop? Generally, most of us don’t need a reason to shop. I will give you a reason to shop now. Bonus Days.

The need for more …flower stamps

I know, you have “tons” of flower stamps. I say why not another one.

Adding-Wink-of-Stella

Yes, it’s true, flower stamps are always a big hit and the most popular on a card. I have probably 15 sets of flower stamps in my collection. Each one is really different-So I explain to my hubby and my tax guy every year.

The Irresistibly Floral Suite found on page 126 & 127 is just what you need.

How’s this for a beautiful Birthday card:

Amazing-Birthday

I added a butterfly with a bit of shimmer and the greeting came from Mixed Boarders stamp set.

see-the-colors-up-close

I put a watercolor wash on the watercolor paper with the two main colors, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum. Then I used the Bold Butterfly Framelits to cut out. Once dried, I added the Wink of Stella. Have you tried one of these pens yet? It’s so easy to add a bit of shimmer without going over the top.

***** There is an important feature to notice on this set. There are marks on the stamps to show you where the framelits line up.

Here is the cute little flower stamp. Notice the black marks on the stamp and the tab on the framelit:

Lining-up-the-stamps

Why should you care?

Here is an example of this flower set. I was stamping and coloring and then sort of lined up the flower. As you can see, there is a difference:

Look-for-the-marks

If you want it just right, you can line it up perfectly with the tabs.

As you can see-lined up just right.

Packet-of-Cardstock-goodies

Now, How about a nice patriotic card using Swirly Bird set.

4th-of-July-Card-2016

I love how the Silver Glimmer paper cuts out beautifully with these Thinlits, just by using the Magnetic Platform and the Precision Base Plate.

Sparkle-4th

I forgot to put the most awesome, must have glue yesterday. Our Fine-Tip Glue pen is THE PERFECT glue to use for these diecut pieces. Yes, You must buy this product. Ok, so you have a lot of adhesives, but this one is perfect to add teeny, tiny strip of glue to those thin strips. You just can’t go wrong with it.

Life on a lake

Banner-fun

Living on the shores of Lake Geneva, WI is really a joy. It’s Beautiful year-round. But it is also Crazy during Holidays and Summer Weekends. Now, I’m not saying that people go completely nuts when they get on water, but it does get a bit over the top for entertainment for us. WE, The Zaraza Family, Do NOT, I repeat, Do NOT go out into the waters with our own boat on the weekend during the summer.  (Only reason we would is to answer one of our Burglar Alarm calls by boat). There are people out there who have no clue how to drive that rental boat or “jet ski” machine and I just want to be safely on land to watch it all. I’m not being mean, just saying it like it is. I’ll own it! Most fisherman and true boaters will go out during Tues-Thurs when the lake is calmer and less churned from the weekends.

Spring-2016

But, in the spirit of all things fun, I created a boat on the water card using one of our fastest selling stamp sets/combo to date.

Celebrate-Fun

It’s our Swirly Bird Stamp Set and Swirly Scribbles Thinlits.

Check out this swirly water:

Tomorrow I will have a few ideas for the 4th using this set.

New Hostess Code Available: 4AGJFM4R

HOSTESS CODE:

I have decided to add a Hostess Code (Upper Right side) that you add to your information when you place an order. It will ask you, Hostess code? and you will just place the #’s for July 4AGJFM4R in the box. This does not affect the order you place online. The goods will be shipped directly to your home in approx 4-5 business days. What this means is that I will see how many Hostess rewards totaled for the month. Then I will divide the items up and send fun product to all those who purchased Online from me that month along with a fun Thank You card. However, If your order is of over $150.00, then you will already be a Hostess and you will not need the Hostess code.

Oh Happy Day Shadow box

How’s this for fun.

Shadow-Box-Oh-Happy-Day

I love our new Serene Scenery DSP. Perfect for a little Shadow box.

I added the Greeting Oh Happy Day from the Scenic Sayings stamp set. I used our foam based pad in Soft Suede-inked and stamped on our vellum.

Oh-Happy-Day-w-Clear-Embossing.

It stays wet enough to add clear embossing powder. Tap off and heat. I used our new oval framelits to cut out and ta da!

Check out this beautiful paper:

#1 #2 #3 #4

There is a lot more to look at but I gave you just a teaser.

ENJOY!
