Bigshot's first play

First of all It's good to be home (We enjoyed our Easter cruise on the Pacific Dawn) & back to blogging, I have no excuse for the lack of, well except computors can be time absorbing! I stayed up 'till 2am  last Thursday -the day my Bigshot arrived! & here are the gorgeous cards I made, some cased & all inspired in some way by creators who have had their hands & minds on the die's & accessories for the Bigshot for some time (Splitcoast Stampers). That's were I saw the Tulips (made from the wing on the Extra Large Two-Step Bird Punch) & thankyou to the talented creator of the Topnote gift card holder card, -never thought to add it to a cardfront, here's a pic of the inside;

I have also been making Ribbon Roses (so many ways!) & the Scallop Circle B'day card that has a little Pink Taffeta Ribbon Rose on it, is made my favourite way -the quickest, no sewing & no glueing, it's hard to explain, remember "streamer folding" (not even sure if that's what it's called!) it forms a chain streamer linked together using 2 different colours, well you do this with the ribbon & then pull 1 tail & it scrunches into a rose -I think a video is called for to explain, LOL. I'll work on getting back soon with better instructions if you like it?
I know most of the hearts I used on the Friend card are retired but I had most stamped & ready to be adhered to a mini envelope I made ages ago -boy I'm glad we now have a die for that, anyway I found the stash of Hearts so I went a little crazy on that one.
