Too Cool – Big Shot Magnetic Platform

I’m posting a bit late today since I side tracked by my new box of goodies that came in that big brown truck. Don’t you love to see it pulling into your driveway? I know I do, it means I get to start creating with new goodies– and with this weekend’s Blue Mountain Stampers’ Retreat I’m getting ready to have a weekend marathon of stamping with my gal pals. Yippie!

I couldn’t wait to try out my NEW Big Shot Magnetic Platform (item 130658) and was truly impressed at how easy it makes things. You are going to love, love, love it! Check out this video showing you how it works.

Cool huh?

Vintage Soho Subway

Now for the card I promised to show you yesterday. Today’s card is one that came from a recent shoebox swap with my TEAM, the Blue Mountain Stampers. This card was created by JoAnn who loves vintage. She combined the Soho Subway Designer Series Paper with the butterflies made with the NEW 2013-2015 In Colors. When stamping the butterflies JoAnn alternated the colors of ink she used, instead of making them monochromatic. Very clever I thought.

Everyone’s card turns out slightly different since we assemble the cards ourselves using hers as our guide. It’s always great fun to see how everyone changes it up a bit to suit their style.
