Warm Halloween Wishes

  • Two Halloween cards
  • Free Big Shot (or $100 in free Stampin' Up! catalog merchandise) for new demonstrators
  • January 2012 Stampin' Up! events in San Antonio, TX
I woke up with a strong urge to play in my stamp room today.  I just barely took time to make a steaming cup of coffee, grabbed my favorite mug, and headed to my craft loft.  With the Big Shot promotion in full swing, I wanted to showcase some of the fun, Stampin' Up! dies you can use with your big shot.

Here are two fun card using the Big Shot Dies and Textured embossing folders.

This first card uses both dies and textured embossing folders with the Big Shot Die Cut Machine.  I used the smaller circular die from the Perfect Pennants Bigz L Die as a background accent behind the owl.  The Halloween owl is part of  the hostess set from the Holiday Mini catalog.  The stamp set, called Warmest Wishes, is a perfect set for fall holidays. It is available at a reduced hostess price for hosting a Holiday Workshop or free with your hostess dollars earned by being a hostess.  

The Owl is punched with the Owl Builder Stamp punch(1180740), making this an easy and fast card to recreate.  Other stamps in this set work with the Petite Pennants Builder punch (122361), The 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch (118874) and the Decorative Label Punch (120907).  The 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon in Basic Black add just the right touch of playfulness. 

Hostess Set, Holiday Mini Catalot:  Warmest of Wishes (122670-w; 122672-c)

The second card uses the other circular shape from the Perfect Pennants Bigz L Die.  I can't stop using these two shapes on projects since this die were first introduced in the new July 2011-2012 Catalog.  The rickrack on the top of this card was created using the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL Die (120893) with the Big Shot.  With four different trims included on this one die, I had a hard time choosing which to use on this card.  The textured spider web background was created using the Big Shot and a textured embossing folder.  The sentiment block uses the Spooky Bingo Bits stamp set embossed with Tangerine Tango embossing powder.
