Big Shot!

Yes, I did!  I bought a Big Shot!  I just couldn’t hold out any longer! 🙂

So far I only have a couple of dies and some embossing folders, but I am already loving it.  I will be taking a few days off from classes and workshops over the next ten days or so, and hope that I will get lots of time to try out some new ideas, and of course, play with my new toy 🙂

So, for this card I have gone completely away from my usual traditional Christmas colours, and it is growing on me.  I have used the Big Shot with an embossing folder to create a lovely textured cardstock for my background, I just love this look, and am half way through another card using the same idea, so I will try to get that finished this evening.  I do think you will be seeing rather a lot of this in the near future 🙂

Stamp Sets: Snow Swirled, Christmas Classics.

Cardstock: Night of Navy, Taken with Teal, Whisper White.

Inks: Taken with Teal, Tempting Turquoise, Real Red.

Accessories: Big Shot with Embossing Folder, Ribbon from my own stash, markers.

Hope this inspires you to do something a little different with your Christmas cards this year.  And stay tuned for some more cards soon.

Keep stampin!

  1. Dear Chris,
    Yes, the card is really great. But I’m obviously missing something – what is a Big Shot? And are they expensive. As I only just commented to you this week, I love the dry embossed look – but I have to it the old fashioned way! Please tell me that this big shot thongy doesn’t cost the earth!
    Regards always,
