Welcome to my little spot in the world wide web. You must have come from Nancy Keithley’s amazing Scrapbook Kits and More page at www.fancynancykay.blogspot.com. From here you will continue on your way to visit Stacey Coombs at Stampin Stace .www.stampinstace.blogspot.com If you are lost and confused you may go to back to the beginning HERE. If you are simply overwhelmed by the AMAZING creativity of these Rockers, I can't help with that J Sit back, get a bag of chocolate and a cup of coffee and hop along. I have enjoyed every VC Rocks Blog Hop and I hope you do too.
I love my Big Shot! I really do not know if it is possible for me to design a card without it. As my fellow VC Rocker, Carey Rogers, calls it a "he or him" and refers to it as "Mr. Big Shot." I honestly can say he is more useful than some of the family members in my house. But he cannot keep your feet warm at night and he does not purr.
My project below was actually from a card class taught by my Soul Sister, Shannon Miramontes. She should be a VC Rocker but she has the cutest almost 3 year old (who does not nap everyday anymore) so I share my VC Rocks experience with her. (BTW: she loves the May Swaps.) Shannon and I also have a blog we work on together with our craft fair ideas. We are SoulSisters-StampInStyle.blogspot.com
The card base is Baja Breeze. The technique used with Mr. Big Shot is called Embedded Embossing. In a nutshell, you layer all your papers, glue them together, then send the whole thing through Mr. Big Shot. He can handle it. I have never broken a plate, but I have folded back that extra flap a time or two.
Supplies you'll need for this card are: Baja Breeze, Marina Mist, Old Olive, and Whisper White Card Stock. Green House Gala DSP. Antique Brads, Whisper White 5/8” Satin Ribbon, and The Bird Punch. For your Big Shot you will need the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. Really, that's it. If you want the measurements, please email me, but it is a pretty straight forward card design with a very special technique. I hope you try this out someday. Let me know what you think with a comment.
