Wowser Wednesday

It's the middle of the week and I wanted to share with you a wow project.  FACT:  Did you know since stampin up associated themselves with Sizzix, Sizzix had to hire 20% more employees.  We are also very lucky that stampinup has a partnership with them because they get to customize dies just for us!  The big shot has a lot of advantages and today I will show you one of them. 

I made these for the 3D sudsol swap at convention, and gave one to a few special people in my stampin up life:  my trainer Ronda Wade, my SAM (service account manager) and one to stampinup.  Seriously you will love these, people would stop me to take a picture and ask questions.  A perfect gift for a hostess during Christmas time.  I will be making a few of these for my clients that book a workshop in the next 3 months.

The Pattern box , I had, It's not a die!  But you can print the pattern Here

The following materials work well when creating die cuts with the Big Shot machine and Bigz and Originals dies. Please note the maximum thickness of several materials. As a rule of thumb, you can cut a material with your Big Shot machine and Bigz or Originals dies if you can cut it using your Craft & Paper Scissors.

    LOVE this!  Did you use a die for the box?

    actually Janet, the box, I had a bunch of them at home there was no die to create this but it is simple enough to trace on and cut of a 12×12 acetate sheet.

    Your snowflake candle holder is the cutest.  I have made them using the "Flower Folds" die before, but love, love, love the "Snowflake Die" for Christmas.  My Christmas Open House with have these everywhere.Thanks.

    Love your swap cards….I see that you used the petals a plenty embossing folder for the background but how did you get every flower glittery? Is there a technique or did you embellish each one by hand?

    Kim I love these tealight holders.  I do have a question though.  Are the edges of the snowflake sharp?  I am a total accident waiting to happen and don't want to risk getting cut.
    Thanks for sharing
