Happy Monday!!! In celebration of Stampin’ Up’s fabulous Big Shot Promotion this month I thought I would share with you all the ways I love my Big Shot! So get ready for a week of BIG SHOT FUN!
The month of August when you purchase the Big Shot, you will get a Bundle for FREE!!! There are 5 Bundle options, click here to see them! One of them options is the amazing Daydream Medallion Stamp Set and matching Floral Collection Framelits! This is probably my favorite of them all! Isn’t the card above just fabulous! I used Crumb Cake, Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey, and Very Vanilla! I stamped the image and then used the coordinating framelit to cut them out (no fussy cutting necessary!)! I added the greeting from A Dozen Thoughts and a few pearls!!!! Love it!
I think this one is my favorite! I used the same color scheme and just layered the cut out image (with dimensionals of course!)! I added in the White Tea Lace Doily and stamped the greeting from A Dozen Thoughts as a little banner! Check out the Video Tutorial below or by clicking here to see this Bundle in action with the Big Shot!

Wedding Season is in full bloom! That means there are lots of Wedding Showers taking place as well. Well if you are in charge of an upcoming Wedding (or Baby) Shower and need fabulous ideas or help with making them, I am here for you! I would love to help you with your crafty side and make amazing shower invites, favors, etc OR I am more than happy to make that perfect piece for you! Leave me a comment down below and we can get started! Now for those fabulous ideas…..
These fabulous Bridal Shower invites were made for a friend of mine who is having a Rustic/Elegant Wedding theme! That seems to be another popular theme lately! I played around with a few samples before we landed on this one. The one above was created with the Daydream Medallion Stamp Set and matching Floral Frames Framelits!!! I love playing with this stamp set. I started with a piece of 8-1/2 x 11 Very Vanilla cardstock and just stamped all over in So Saffron and Crumb Cake (sometimes stamping a few times before returning to the ink pad for that variation of color). Then I took the stamped piece and cut it into pieces for multiple cards! This made making 40 invitations go much quicker than stamping each piece individually!
This was another option that I created for my friend to pick from. I used the Daydream Medallion Stamp Set on the center piece of So Saffron and then I used the Delicate Details Lace Trim (which is retiring on June 1, get it before it’s gone)! Another fabulous Shower invitation!!!
I hope these samples gave you inspiration and if you are in charge of a Shower or another special event and you just aren’t feeling crafty, I am more than happy to help you out!!! Also, be on the lookout for more Shower Invites because I am working on some right now for my cousin who is getting married this summer! Love it!!! 🙂
Of course you can substitute the stamp set and Framelits to any set you have on hand or your favorite! This pair is my current love. Every time I need a card, I am just drawn to this set! Check out some more samples here, here, and here! Your card base for this one is 8-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ and you will score at 2-1/8″ and 6-3/8″. Fold on those score lines and you will have your gate-fold card base. Then you need to stamp and cut out each of the layers in any color combination you wish to use! I used Summer Starfruit, Raspberry Ripple, and Primrose Petal! Now it is time to assemble them all together. So I stamped the largest image in Summer Starfruit onto my card front, then I added the stamped and die-cut next largest down by adhering it only on the left side of the gate. Then with the last two flowers, I layered them on top of each other with some Stampin’ Dimensionals (love), laid the card closed, added adhesive to the right side and put the piece down just like a puzzle piece.
You can see the pieces better here in this photo with the card opened up! On the inside of this card I stamped the smallest of the flowers in this stamp set and my Thank You greeting! This card really has a WOW factor to it and it is fairly simple to create! You could use any of the layering Framelits with this technique! I hope you try this out. Send me pictures of your card when you try this technique! I would love to see them!
A friend of mine reached out to me to make invitations for her mother’s 60th Birthday Party! I was so excited to be able to help with this party!! I know that the Mother’s favorite color is Purple and she loved a rustic/vintage look. Here is what I came up with:
What do you think?? I think I nailed it on the head!!! I used the Daydream Medallion Stamp Set which has quickly became my go to stamp set. You can check out more samples here and here! LOVE IT! I randomly stamped all over and then added a little more ink with my sponge daubers for the bottom half of the card. Then I die-cut all of the smallest flowers from the Floral Frames Framelits and brushed the edges with Elegant Eggplant ink and my sponge daubers. I brushed the edges of the banners as well. Here are a few of the steps I took when making these.
Remember assembly line is the best way to make multiple cards!
I even stamped a little on the corner of the envelopes to make them match and a decorated envelope in the mail is sooooo exciting to receive! I love how they turned out and the Birthday Girl LOVED them too! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Sue!!!!!
If you are having a party or wedding and need help with the invitations, programs, party favors, and more let me know and I would love to help you make the perfect party!!!!
