Cards with embossed Fabric

Yes, the following cards have been embossed with the Big shot.

Material was adhered to Whisper White card stock used the new Big-Shot multi-purpose adhesive sheets. The material/card was then put though the Big Shot Die Cutting machine and cut with the Bigz Beautiful Die, then again with an embossing folder.

Star Card Photograph Album

This is my first attempt at making a star photograph album, I’m quite pleased with how it turned out.

The photos are of my teenagers Year 13 High School Ball.

The theme was a winter one, hence the snowflakes. Her dress was purple with silver embroidery and sequins, so I embossed the snowflakes with silver embossing powder.

All products used were Stampin’ Up! except the ribbon, and die cut letters, and silver card, for the front page.

The stamp set used was Snow Swirled with Baroque Border wheel.

Christmas Card Class

During our last Saturday afternoon class we made a selection of Christmas cards using the Stampin’ Up! stamp Dasher. Although he was also called Rudolph and Prancer in the class!! LOL!  Two of the cards were embossed with gold embossing powder. The third card also used the Lovely as a Tree Stamp set.

Although the pictured pillow die boxes shown have a lovely chocolate theme, (Eat Chocolate Stamp Set) the ones we made in class were Christmas themed.

Next weeks class will be a continuation of Christmas themed cards, but with a punch art flare added.

Easel Cards

A few weeks ago at my Saturday afternoon class we had a go at making several different varieties of easel cards.  The are wonderful show case cards and were fun to do.

These cards all used the Big shot and Dies. Scallop Circle Die, Bigz Butterly Die, Blossom Party Die.

Sorry I can’t find where I cased the Butterfly card from to give them credit.

The Circle easel card also used the Circle Scissors Plus to cut the large circles and the petal punch for the tiny message envelope. The top circle was cut out of glossy white card, trees embossed with black embossing powder and then brayered in blue and green.

We also made two other cards not pictured, a tiny easel card with the small butterflies from the Bigz Butterfly Die and another easel card using the Top Note Die.
