I have been hit....

...with the Big Shot!!! I will spare you the song..... I did get to play a little last night...and let me tell you....this is my favorite cutting system that I own! The others are going into the sale bin!

Wanna see what I made last night...I cranked it out in no time at all!!! {pun intended....cranked it!!!} That just came to me! Ok, enough of my dumb jokes......

The card base is kiwi kiss....sooooo yummy!!!! See that die cut center??? That is the new top note die!!! I love this will be seeing quite a bit of it! (That was your warning....)

Anyway, i cut the top note in two colors, riding hood red and confetti white. The die is designed to give you a perforated edge...which is lovely all by itself....but I cut the edge off of the confetti white one and matted them together. Oh heart is racing!!! The only stamping I did here was the sentiment, from Upsy Daisy in chocolate chip, and the flourish leaves, from Stitched Exotics in kiwi kiss. The flower were all die cut, from the birds and blooms sizzlet die set in the starter kit using bella rose designer series paper. I did, however, use my boho blossom punch for the 2 flower centers on the polka dot kiwi kiss flower to change it up a little. Don't the dies and punch work well together? I think they do. Two of the flowers were mounted up on stampin dimensionals...of course {wink, wink}. Oh yeah...the polka dot chocolate chip panel is also from bella rose designer series paper. That is one beautiful collection of paper!!!!

If you are looking for ways to speed up your paper crafting...the Big Shot is definitely for you.

It took me longer to layout the flowers than to cut out and stamp this entire card. I was able to do two entire cards before my husband said "are you done in there yet????" I will show you my other one tomorrow....and if I get a chance to sneak up there again today....I will not hold out on you....I'll post it! I owe you a few posts for the lack of posting lately....don't think I didn't notice! lol!!!
