Saying Goodbye to the Pop ‘n Cuts Dies & More

I was sad to see some of my favorite Big Shot Accessories were on the Retirement  list this spring. One of my favorites is the Card Base Pop ‘n Cuts Die (130099). I have had so much fun creating cards and gift items with this collection of dies and framelits and I’ve created a number of different video tutorials using them.

So today here are some of my favorite projects made with Big Shot Dies and Framelits along with some of our retiring stamp sets.

Label Love

If you like punches you are going to love this new stamp set Label Love (item 130619/130622) found on page 33 in our NEW 2013-2014 Catalog! The Label Love stamp set coordinates with the Artisan Label Punch (item 130920) and is great for all kinds of different occasions. No fussy cutting with this set and I’m definitely a punch kind of girl. How about you?

Label Love

My card today was made during my weekend retreat and was part of our shoebox swaps. My friend Aniko designed this card and I tweaked it a little bit – that is the fun of a shoebox swap after all, being able to change it up a bit to suite you personality.

This Label Love card was my first opportunity to use our NEW Candy Dots and I’ve got to tell you that if you haven’t ordered any yet, you’ll want to. You’re going to loooove them hands down! And since they come in all the colors they are a great deal – just start by picking your favorite color family or if you can’t resist get them all!

Memorable Moments

My daughter turned 18 on Monday and so I wanted to make her a special card using some of my sneak peek products that I just received from the NEW 2013-2014 Catalog.

Here’s what I came up with. I think she really liked it too since she specifically noticed our NEW Washi Tape that I used to make the candles and commented “it was cool”.

Memorable Moments (1)

I wasn’t sure about this product when I first saw it, but I think I’m really going to like it. It’s quick and easy to use and I love the feel of it.

The stamp set I used for the sentiment on this card is the Memorable Moments stamp set (item 126680/126682) currently found in our 2012-2013 Catalog on page 139. The set has such a pretty font and I like the way I can customize it for almost any occasion using the set of numbers that it includes.


Stamp Set: Memorable Moments (item 126680/126682)

Inks: Melon Mambo

Paper: Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Whisper White

Accessories: Gingham Garden Washi Designer Tape (sneak peek item 129314), Bird Builder Punch (item 117191), Woodgrain Embossing Folder (item 127821)
