I love this DSP (First Edition SpecialityDSP) too, so versatile!
Funny to think the Big Shot has only been in our catalogue for a year, but it is utterly indispensable to me now!
A quick reminder about my class tomorrow and Stamp night on Friday night too. Hope you are having a lovely week!

Have you taken your preschooler to the Queensland Art Gallery lately?
We love the Art Gallery, GOMA, the State Library, and the Museum. But the Art Gallery is especially fun at this time of year when the jacarandas bloom. There is a gorgeous painting of a jacaranda in the Gallery and every year something magical happens....
Some kind gallery fairy drops jacaranda flowers under the painting! Kids love it.
Another thing they enjoy is saying hello to the Gallery Mice ( you can buy a book about them in the Gallery gift shop).
If you haven't taken them there, you should!

Here are some recent cards I made, using the same colour combination. The Bingo card was cased from the IB&C. So fun! The other card features a new alphabet stamp I borrowed from lovely Manda....it is on my wish list now!

In the meantime, my eldest has been invited to her BFF's sleepover birthday party tonight, and I had to whip something up (literally moments ago). BFF is heavily in love with all things owl related at present, so I dragged out that faithful owl punch and went to work:
|Stamps: Perfectly Penned|
Ink: Early Espresso
Paper: Pool Party, Real Red, Brights DSP Stack, Old Olive, Early Espresso, Shimmery White
Other: Big Shot, Ovals die, Owl Punch, Bird Punch, 2-way glue, Dimensionals
Here's the card I made, and as I had the present in a large kraft paper bag, I added a co-ordinating tag made in seconds with the Big Shot using the Two Tags die:

It is my twelfth wedding anniversary today, and I made a card for my beloved (which I will steal back from him to put on my sample board, LOL) with a very masculine tone.
My hubby works in the oil &gas industry, so this industrial "Big Boys Toys" stamp set is perfect for him.
This is the other stamp set I played with when I was at Amanda's last week. It is one that is on my wish list as I not only have two little boys, I think it will be useful for Big Boys too!
Here are the other cards I made:
As you can see, I used the same colour combinations for all the cards, which is an efficient way to make a batch of cards for future use, as well as make maximum use of the cardstock with the least amount of wastage.
