Carryover products

I was very excited to see that the Punch Butterfly is still available though the mini catalogue is over so I went and had fun making some mini cards using punches and the Big Shot.

Autumn Mini

’tis a new season and we celebrate with the new Autumn/Winter Mini. New stamps sets, new colours and new papercraft tools! (ok fun toys to play with)

Now where do I start. I will start .. how about with the Big Shot die-cutting machine? It cuts not just card and paper but fabric and chipboard and plastic and more! It embosses too!

Here are some cards I created using the Textured Impressions Embossing Folders – the Perfect Polka Dots.

These two cards use the great new colour of Rich Razzleberry. My scanner/camera didn’t do the best job of how truly beautiful it is. You should see it.

I embosssed the cards using the embossing folder and using glue dots attached the Rich Razzleberry Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon. Then using the great new punch of the Extra-Large Two Step Bird I cut out two – one in whisper white, the other in Rich Razzleberry. Exchanging wings I attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals. No stamping was involved in this card 😉 I did case this from someone at the meeting the other night but I am not sure who (sorry! Perhaps you can tell me Vanessa?)

Here is the card in a slight different interpretation…

Stayed tuned for my next sneak peak with fox and friends! Only 6 days to go til the catalogue launches.

More from the new catalogue

Here is another use of the sweet cups. A bit harder to scan in. I made a little pouch and put jelly babies in the pouch but used blue jelly bellys in the sweet cups for she had a little boy.

My other favourite new item from the summer catalogue is a butterfly punch which coordinates nicely with the stamp set butterfly prints.


This was a very easy card to make and I enjoyed using my vintage brads so the butterfly floats on the card and the crop-a-dile makes it so easy to punch the holes in the butterfly and the card.

This was the make and take at the stamping meeting and I can’t wait to try my own version of it… No stamps were used in the creation of this card
