Like most people I am in love with everything in the Stampin Up! new Spring mini catalog! When the pre-order time came I ended up with three sets but the one I really just had to get was the “Forest Friends” set. For some reason it struck me as a little funky-vintage and I loved the tree! I have been playing with this set and have 2 fun cards to share.
The first was one I created for a recent demo swap.
You might notice the card is not in the best shape, this is what happens when your three year twins want to play with the deer! I just haven’t made a new one yet:) The pink and brown seemed liek a sweet baby card. I used one of my favorite sets, Fundamental Phrases to make this a baby card.
Specs: (all SU)
-chocolate chip card stock, ink, ribbon
-pink pirouette card stock
-Candy Lane DSP
-Forest Friends set
-Fundamental Phrases set
-circle and word window punch
-scallop edge punch
My second card is pretty simple and uses the owl along with the Good Morning Sunshine paper. I added a scrap of Pacific Point that I had run through the Big Shot with the small polka dot texture plate.
-Whisper White card stock
-Pacific Point card stock
-Old Olive card stock
-Chocolate chip ink and ribbon
-Good Morning Sunshine DSP
-Scallop circle and edge punches
-Big shot, small polka dot Texture plate
Honestly, I just purchased the Big Shot a few weeks ago and I am amazed at how much I’ve used it already! I knew I’d love it, I’d seen enough projects online, played with a friends enough to know I’d love it. But I was surprised at how much I’ve used it. I have a Cricut that I purchased a year ago, and I’ve yet to use it enough to justify the cost or get into using it as much as I thought I would. Oh well, live and learn right?
