Making Flowers from Metal

 A couple of weekends ago I went to an Art and Music Festival.  A girl was selling metal flowers.  I have made them before but not like this.  I bought hers and decided I could do this with my Big Shot.  I collect costume jewelry, especially clip on earrings.  Decided to use some of them as the centers of the flowers!  This is the Fun Flowers Die.
Yes it cuts Metal!  This is Roof flashing.  I sanded it with Stampin' Up's  Sanding Blocks
These sanding blocks are the best out there.  Then I used our sponges and Ink and laid in some color.  I used Midnight Muse!

I'm hoping to do a video on this.  As you have seen I am testing the waters with videos,  I'm really new and raw at this.  Let me know if you've watched them and if you think I should keep keepin on.
Thanks for stoppin by.

Lattice Thank YOU!

Wanted to share this card with you that we did at our card class this month.  Very simple and and easy.  The Lattice die used with the big shot.
This image is sometimes hard to adhear so use the multi purpose adhesive sheets
Do for your paper projects what the Big Shot Fabric Adhesive Roll does for our new fabric—turn your Big Shot die cuts into stickers! Simply apply an adhesive sheet to your card stock, Designer Series paper, or other base material, crank through the Big Shot machine, and peel the backing paper off. Apply your die cut to any kind of project for quick and super easy accents.
■ 12 adhesive sheets, 12" x 12"
■ Add adhesive to die cuts. Simply apply card stock or DSP to the adhesive sheet, run through the Big Shot, peel off backing paper and adhere.
■ Not washable
■ Adheres in an instant with no lifting edges
This will be retiring from SU's catalog at the end of this month so if you want some order NOW
Have fun Stamping today!

Woo Hoo! Birthday Card

 I can't get enough of the single stamp "Woo Hoo!"  and I love to color so this one is right up my alley!  The good news for those who don't like to color is there really is not that much coloring!
Isn't  it cute!  We did stamp it and cut around tall those scallop edges, but that's not something you'd have to do.  But if you know me at all I also love to cut things!!  If you don't love it, it may be that you don't own a good pair of paper cutting scissors, and I'd like to recommend our Paper Snips!
These small, thin-bladed scissors are perfect for all your paper trimming needs. They are great for snipping that little bits of paper or when trimming ribbon. Thin stainless steel blades for perfect cutting in even the tiniest areas.

■ Precision-ground tips allow for cutting all the way to the end of the blades
■ Protective shield (safety cover)
■ Comfort-grip handle for ease in cutting
■ Exclusive to Stampin’ Up!
■ 2-1/2" blade

Now for the what I used to color this.  Stampin' Up's! Markers are the BEST!  I used Pool Party, Lucky Lime Aid, and Crumb Cake.  Now you might be wondering how I got that darker color for the icing... well that is three coats of maker.  I colored the whole cake with crumb cake Marker and then went over the icing two more times... That way you get more color tones out of one marker!  Markers are sold some individuality in color Collections and as a Big Set.  If you are like me you will want them ALL! 
Thanks for stopping by and crafting with me.If you'd like to join in on a class or have other questions about this project contact me
