Bowl of Ice Cream Card

A Big Bowl of Ice Cream with NO Calories!

By | Big Shot, Cards | No Comments

We discovered an ice cream place this summer that my husband insists has the best ice cream ever . (Belts’ in Stevens Point, Wisconsin) Our visits there are one of the few times that I really regret that I don’t eat dairy. Thankfully I can create my own delicious looking bowl of ice cream with paper and as a bonus it’s got no calories! It’s not quite the same, but much healthier for me and a quick way to brighten someone’s day at the same time. Peekaboo Peach card base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ Whisper White: ½” x…

Sometimes you have just a narrow strip of patterned paper that you can’t bring yourself to throw away. That’s how cards like this happen… Whisper White: 2-1/4″ x 3-3/4″ Striped Paper: 3/4″ x 5″ Dapper Denim: 4″ x 5-1/4″ Whisper White card base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ When you use a fish stamp you almost have to pair it with the Seaside embossing folder. I’m not even sure what else to tell you about this card because it’s SO EASY! It’s what they call a monochromatic card because I just used white and Dapper Denim. Just one color plus white. It can…

NEW! Stitched Shapes Dies

By | Big Shot | No Comments

There’s a new set of framelits in town and at first glance you may think “What’s the big deal? I don’t need more of those shapes.” That’s what I thought at first, but then I took a closer look. Not only do these cut out the basic shapes but they add a nice detailed “stitching” around the edges to give it a more finished look. Fabulous!! Watch this video from Stampin’ Up! to take a closer look at what you can do with these dies… Pretty neat, right? I’ve used a plastic template and a Paper-Piercing Tool to create a…
