Let me apologise, first of all, for the poor quality of my photos in the next few posts. You see, my sisters-in-crime and I were putting together sample boards and packing boxes for the Big Launch on Sunday until midnight last night, when it occurred to me to photograph a dozen or so cards I haven't put on my blog yet. The lighting was horrible, and even after Photoshopping the heck out of them, the photos are still bad. I would like to take better photos in natural sunlight when I get the cards back, but I can't guarantee I will get around to it. So for the next couple of posts (I'm preparing a few posts to appear in the following few days) you will have to suffer the Terrible Photos Taken at Night.
After that long disclaimer, here we go! I must say, this gorgeous 2-step bird punch was the first thing that grabbed my eye when I saw the new Mini. I had to have it! I just see so many uses for it in cardmaking, scrapbooking, etc.
This would make a sweet and simple wedding card, don't you think? I sponged the edges of the birds and I ran the heart through the Big Shot spotty embossing folder for some texture.
Not sure if I've shown you these cards previously, I made them ages ago and have already given them away, but they also feature the birdie!
I used some retired DSP and the sentiment was also from the Spring Mini (now retired) - doesn't it fit beautifully in the big circle punch?
Stay tuned for more examples!
