All That Glitters CTC96

Welcome to my blog this week. Whether you have started here with me or come from Rebecca's blog, don't forget to continue hopping around until you reach your starting point again. This week we are CASE-ing the Big Shot, pages 8-11.I have taken a lot of creative liscence with this week's challenge, since Rebecca has already featured the cards I had planned, Only fair, as she didn't leave her entry to the last minute like I did!!!!

I HAVE used my Big Shot to texture emboss with the Pretty Paisleys textured embossing folder and I also die cut Botanical Blooms with the very same Big Shot. My inspiration comes from the many wreaths featured through the Holiday Catalogue.
Now I have to confess, I stayed up late after my Friday night class students left, so I may have been a bit hyped-up, and those bling-loving-girls may just have influenced the design a tad. The Wink of Stella clear had a bit of a work out in class, and again on my wee project. (I'm pretty sure you'll even be able to glimpse it in the second picture),

My last order had the Bunch of Banners Framelits in it, and I broke them open to cut 'birthday' from the Hostess set in the Annual catalogue, Time Of Year. I did try my card out with the big sentiment from the same set 'thinking of you' but there was no space for 'on your' so I whipped out the 'happy' from  Hello You Thinlets which fits perfectly!

Whatever did I do before I had my Big Shot?

My September classes featured some different things you can do with Flourishing Phrases stamps and the Flourish Thinlets, and the Friday girls were happy to share their cards (but not their faces).

The lovely Monique is next on this blog hop, I wonder what she has shared?

Thanks for dropping by, Cheers, Rachel

  4. Rachel I have been wondering what the embossing folder looks like in real life so thanks so much for showcasing it here. It's quite sweet isn't it, and looks great with the flowers around. The happy is just perfect.
