This card was made using the Big Shot and the BIGZ strawberry die. I traced around the red portion so I could have a white mat and make the card a little stronger. The die is so cool because it has two berries connected at the stem so it can be folded over into a card. There's also a leaf die on it.
I just wrote a review of the Big Shot for our craft column "Haute Homemade" for our local newspaper. You can find it at www.annistonstar.com . Type in Debbie Reaves in the search box since I don't know how to direct you to the article. Please share the love in a comment box if you liked the article.
I also made a cute banner with five berries and each one had a letter on it to spell out "B L O O M". It turned out real cute.
Let me know if you had time to visit the article and I sure do appreciate it. I'm not a writer so I think it's a big deal if I write an article.
I especially want to thank you for dropping by here when I know you'd rather be stamping..cutting...or something else. Having a snack would be good too!
Happiness always blooms in the Strawberry Studio!
I'm married to the best guy in the world and have one son, daughter-in-law and three grandchildren, (two grown boys and one granddaughter) and a new great-granddaughter who was born Oct. 12, 2011.
I've been crafting most of my life starting out drawing, painting and sewing as a kid.
I've been stamping since 1995 and love sharing this hobby with my granddaughter, Scarlett, and anyone else who will listen and wants to learn.
I made my first quilt in the summer of 2008 and have enjoyed quilting very much.
I also enjoy reading. Give me a good book and I won't do anything but read.
I really appreciate you taking the time to visit my blog and hope you have a great day.
