It's Coffee Break Time

Good morning to ya all!!! Yes, it's Coffee Break Time, time for you to take time to be inspired and to inspire. We would love for you to come along and create with us!!! Be sure and look at the other Diva's... lots of beautiful cards, and lots of inspiration. Check us out!!! ;~~)

This weeks challenge was to use the Big Shot for making our cards or projects. If you haven't tried the Big Shot, just take time and give it a try. It is SO CONVENIENT for making die cuts, for putting a texture on your cardstock or design paper, or even embossing. This machine of mine, it sits out on my work desk at all times.... all I have to do, is put the paper and die cut or whatever I'm using together... and it's ready to go... it's really that SIMPLE!!

While I was making my card this week, I had all kinds of ideas, but ended up using only one texture plate in my Big Shot to make my card. The colors that I used are: Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip, and Pretty in Pink. I also used SU's Vintage Brads in the outer corners of the card. I used a few stamp sets of SU... Independence Day (the flourish)#114992, Central Park (the long stem flower)#113732 and Upsy Daisy (the flowers and the sentiment)#111710. I had lots of fun using different stamp sets... I think it's a great way to get more use out of your sets. What sets that you have, can you put together... have you thought about it??
Please notice that my pictures of the card, usually includes a little of the envelope in the background of the card, because I normally use some portion of the design from the card to decorate the envelope. I think it's a good way to set your design apart, to make them unique.

I do hope you enjoy your day, and I want to thank you for stopping by my blog... it is great to have you here, it's a real pleasure!!! ;~~)

Remember you can order from SU at any time that it is convenient for you... check out my website today!
