Mover and Shapers

sounds like a new type of support underwear but in fact it's a cool new die for the awesome Big Shot!! This die is cool - it cuts out the the whole card plus you can add a window ANYWHERE on the front of the card. The die has a space where it is just metal and you add a little die which has a magnet on the back and then you put it thru the Big Shot just like normal. The window on these cards are similar to the Curly Label Punch but it has a 'stitching' effect around it too. There is an add on pack of four dies which have a circle, a dove, a ornament and another curly sided square shape (come back tomorrow to have a look at what I mean lol).
On the Kiwi Kiss (textured) card I used a bit of DSP, some yummy ribbon and the three brads. Now you might say 'Stampin' Up!' don't have white brads' but you can create your own. I stick the legs of a plain metal brad into a hunk of blue tack on the end of a pencil, then rub the head of the brad into a versamark ink pad then into white embossing powder, and then heat it with the heat tool. I did this twice to ensure an even coating. EASY PEASY!! You can do it with any of the embossing powders.
The Tangerine Tango card is textured card stock. Again I got out the white embossing powder and versamark stamp pad to do the Vintage Vogue flowers around the edge of the cards. I punched some Kiwi Kiss leaves from the XL Two Step Bird punch and the flowers with the scallop circle punch out of the TT DSP.
I have some more examples of the mover and shaper dies to post tomorrow so come back and have a look.
Happy Monday!! :-)

  1. These are divine, Julia! I've got this die, and haven't used it yet. You've just given me two very good reasons to get it out and play - thank you!
