This is a card cased from an American Stampin Up blog but now I've come to look for it I can't find the blog. I will give credit when I find the link.

I've used part of the Top Note die to form the bottom of the card & stamped the sentiment straight on to the Very Vanilla cardstock in Night of Navy Clasic Ink. The paper in Springtime Vintage from the Mini Catalogue which has been run through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice embossing folder which gives it a fabric look & feel. I really love this folder!!.

I've used the Beautiful Wings Embosslit die on a piece of Not QuiteNavy cardstock to match the backing card. These little butterflys are gorgeous and really add a little extra to the card.

The flowers from the Vintage Vogue stamp set have been stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock in Night of Navy & Baja Breeze Classic inks & finished off with a bit of bling using the Basic Rhinestones.

I've used the gorgeous Baja Breeze Seam Binding to finish off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenge

Daisy Die

As soon as I saw these flowers at a recent training day with my Stampin' Up! mum Jules I knew I had to have a go at making them. Jules had been sent some by Jo & they looked great in a little vase.

With the new Daisy die they are so easy to make & it just meant cutting & layering the different size flowers.

The stems are barbecue wooden skewers & I've cut some really fine strips of Pear Pizzaz cardstock & wrapped it around to form the stem & leaves.

The centres have been blinged using the new Glass Glitter.

Easy when you have the right tools!!

Big Shot - Not just for card.

I came across some Leopard Print felt today whilst out shopping & as we are all leopard print mad in our house I thought I would have a go at making something with it.

The Big Shot Fun Flowers die cut through the felt like a hot knife through butter, I was so excited lol!! I had also bought a piece of black glitter felt to layer with the printed pieces & I'm really please with the result.

I'm going to make this into a brooch for me but am going to make up some more to make into hair accessories for my oldest two girls.

If you fancy making your own accessories & would like the Big Shot or any of the new dies, some of which are exclusive to Stampin' Up!, then please get in tough with me.
