Sunday Card Club - Big Shot Galore

Here are the two cards we made today in our Sunday card club. We used the Big Shot on just about everything!
#1 - for the card on the right we used the Daisey die to cut out the flowers and deboss them on watercolor paper. Yeah, we made our own letter press plates, how fun! We used a sponge dauber to ink the center of the daises. We used the Tiny Tags stamp set and the Medium Jewelry tag to create the hanging tags.This was a fun and quick card.
#2 - for the card on the left, we used the Big Shot for just about everything! Here is the only part that is not created with the Big shot: to start, we stamped polka dots on the blue panel and used the scallop border punch to give it a decorative edge. For the white panel, we wheeled the Music Notes in Sahara sand classic ink, and sponged the white panel with blushing bride classic ink. The butterfly was made with felted wool placed inside the butterfly emboss lit. To make the heart, we first put the card stock in the lattice embossing folder and the heart shape was created with the heart die. The tag was cut using the lots of tags die set. The little dog is actually a page out of a child's book, and 'color'ed with blender pens. (I purchased the book used for $2, at a local book store.) I made the scallop rectangle shape using the new clear die. The flower was made using the smallest circle from the circle #2 die. I used some material from some fat quarters I purchased at a local fabric store. I used the new half pearls from Stampin' Up! to create the body of the butterfly, and the center of the 'flower'. The ribbon is one of the new twill ribbons from Stampin' Up!
Thanks for looking, and as always, please leave a comment!
