I'm so glad that you stopped by to visit! Please enjoy looking at all my creations. If you don't already have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator you work with, I'd love it if you'd sign up to be on my newsletter mailing list!
This time around the SUO Challenge has assigned the task of "butterflies". Well, in our part of the country, where spring and summer seems ever elusive this year, it may be awhile before we see REAL butterflies. However, butterflies are a favorite of mine, so I like to include them on many of my projects.
Here's my card for this challenge:
This is a very simple card, and I created it in honor of the retiring BaJa Breeze color (which I will very much miss!). Midnight Muse is an excellent color to pair BaJa Breeze with, as I did here. I used the Butterfly Embosslits, Fancy Fan embossing folder, Petite Pairs stamp set, and some retiring 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon.
On a personal note - if you follow my blog regularly, you will notice that lately I haven't been very faithful to writing, sharing and posting. Please be patient with me...I will again post regularly. At this particular point in my life, I am in the middle of a large house remodel as well as dealing with a family health issue, so much of my time is consumed with these things. Thanks for understanding.
Yes, when I use my Big Shot, I usually create texture and embellishments for cards. However, for the SUO Challenge of "Anything Sizzix" I decided I wanted to create a 3-D item. This project went together in a snap, and I think it would be a cute item to use at a wedding or baby shower. I'm imagining it filled with candies for each guest.
There is NO stamping on this project...and only uses two Big Shot accessories: Perfect Pennants Bigz L and Scallop Square Bigz Clear. There was one other tool I used and that was the Scallop Edge Border punch. Paper and card stock used were: Melon Mambo and Sunshine and Sprinkles designer paper. The ribbon embellishment was Old Olive 3/8" Organdy Striped Ribbon.
Here's one more photo shot from a "straight on" angle.
I think this also looks like a flower pot and would look cute with flowers "planted" in it (without the handle).
Well, there you have my project made with anything Sizzix. Now it's your turn to use your Big Shot and share your project with SUO Challenges. See you there!!
