Big Shot Happy Dance


Still feelin' the Big Shot love!!! I am always happy when something I have spent a substantial amount of money on gets used frequently. The flowers are cut with the Big Shot Die Flower Layers #2 and I sponged a little Close to Cocoa ink around the edges. The Kraft piece was run through the Big Shot with the texturz plate and then I just rubbed the Close to Cocoa ink pad over the top. The sentiment is from the SU Level 2 Hostess set A Little Somethin'. The card base is Cameo Coral.

Cameo Coral was one of my favorite colors when I first started stamping. I liked it so much that I purchased a full pack of it; before that I usually just bought the ass't packs. I think one of the biggest mistakes I made when I first started cardmaking was not to use good quality card stock. It does make a difference! I could never figure out why my cards I made at home never quite looked as good as the ones we made at stamp club (this was before I was a demonstrator). Of course, I didn't have all the tools I have now either and I was definitely a true beginner; however, using good card stock improves the look of your cards greatly .

This is so nice. I like the jumbo brad in the center of the flower and the inked texture plates!

I am glad to hear I am not the only one putting the BS to work. I am going to have some good arm muscles by summer. :~) I really like how you made this card. Everything about is perfect. TFS
