Happy World Card making day!

So apparently today is “World Card Making Day” so “Happy World Card making day to you!” I think I might just use that as a fantastic excuse to put aside the washing and cleaning for the afternoon and enjoy making some cards! How about you?   Before I start getting inky fingers I thought I’d share a card I made during the week for a lovely couple who celebrated the arrival of their third gorgeous baby girl at the end of September

STAMP SETS: Baby Prints, Sweet Essentials, Papillon Potpourri

Bigshot love- Fabric Flowers

I love love love my Bigshot Die-Cutting machine!

Yes! I know I go on and on about it but it has been such a versatile tool.  I love it for cutting out lettering and shapes on my cards and scrapbook pages and I’ve also been able to use it for so many other projects (including signs/ posters/ fabric projects and even dress-ups/costumes)  Here I’ve used it to make a fabric flower.

I used the Flower Folds Bigz XL Die (page 193 of the Annual Catalogue)

Once I secured my fabric flower together I attached a felt circle and pin to the back so it can be used as a brooch or attached to a headband for a hair piece.

I have a special offer for the month of October that is related to the Bigshot.  The offer is available to my customers/ newsletters subscribers for the month of October only.  If you don’t receive my newsletter and want to know more please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me so that I can share the “Bigshot love” with you too!
