“To die for” Big Shot Class

Recently, I’ve seen a lot of easel cards made from the Beautiful Butterflies die, and it got me to wondering what other dies I could turn into easel cards.  Hmmm…

I thought this would also be a good idea for my next Big Shot class, which is this coming Thursday, by the way.  The first two easel cards are the ones we’ll be making in class, and the second two are samples of what else you could do with your dies.  I still have a few more dies I’d like to try, but that’s for another day!

Butterfly Anniversary

Of the four I made, I think this is my favorite.  It is so beautiful and elegant.  It looks much better in person! I used the Scallop Square and Beautiful Butterflies die for this one

The main colors in this card are Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Basic Black, and Very Vanilla.  I added some Basic Pearls, which I seem to do a lot lately.  But they are so sweet, and go with everything.

And some more pearls here, too…

Summer Fun

Our second project for class. I used the Scallop Circle and Scallop Circle #2 die.

This is such a bright and happy card!  If I was feeling down and received this card, I know it would perk me up right away.  And I’m not just saying that because I created it.  LOL

The flowers and sentiment are from the level 2 hostess set in the new Summer Mini Catalog, which I received for free!  Thank you Stampin’ Up!  This set reminds me of my all time favorite set - Watercolor Garden, which retired several years ago and I still haven’t gotten over it. ha ha

Get Well Rolodex

I love this Card, Telephone & Address die (what a long name for a die!).  I bought an old cast iron looking Rolodex and have a ton of ideas running around in my head.  Maybe a sort of family tree photo album thing…  Oh well,  I’ll just have to see what happens!

I also used Mandy’s Fun Flowers die, again.  I had just given back to her and had to borrow it all over again. :0)

This picture is a little washed out.  Not sure what happened, but real cute in person. This one also uses the Scallop Circle and Scallop Circle #2 dies.
