The release of the year!!

The Autumn/winter mini is here and boy is it a good mini!!! It almost seems like you shouldn't call it that because it is jam packed with incredible new products, like the big shot that we have all been anticipating, stamp sets, even new COLOURS! Plus loads more.

The Bigshot is a multipurpose die cutter, with the Sizzix Bigshot and dies from Stampin' Up!, you can create die-cut shapes, envelopes and tags with ease. This manual die-cutting machine works with card stock,
Designer Series paper, fabric, chipboard, plastic, window sheets, and more. Use the machine with our exclusive Stampin’ Up! dies or Sizzix dies—plus it’s compatible with other dies in the market.

There is also a new addition of the Clear Mounting Stamps that are fantastic to clean and store.  Have a look at the clip below to get the full picture on how much of an asset these will be for your stamps.

If you would like to hold a workshop to find out how to use this amazing machine please contact me and we can arrange a time that will suit you.

Now for the next Medallion Card, can you see a theme happening here?? I think we are going to work out what my favorite stamp is at the moment. 

I really enjoyed getting my background stamp out for this card as it has been a while, also I am using Sage Shadow, I have always like that colour but having got to use it as much as I would like. I am so excited as I have some Grey taffeta ribbon coming soon from Sue madex as a gift so I had to improvise as the ribbon would have gone perfectly with this card.  Very simply I just put a strip of grey cardstock down and it did the job, maybe not as well as the taffeta ribbon, but I was happy.

Recipe -

Stamp sets - Medallion, En Francais, Whimsical Words

Cardstock - Basic Grey, Sage Shadow, Whisper White

Ink - Sahara Sand, Basic Grey, Sage Shadow
