Tartan Stamper's Mini Catalogue Blog Hop

Welcome to the second Tartan Stamper's Blog Hop. If you are starting here, grab a coffee and enjoy the ride.

If you have hopped here from Liz's Blog, I am sure you will agree what fabulous creations she has made.

This time we are celebrating the New Mini Catalogue.

I am so excited about the products being offered in this biggest mini catalogue to date. There are 10 extra pages and of course we have finally got the BIG SHOT.

The Big Shot is a die cutting system and will expand your creativity. There are 23 dies available in this catalogue, 17 of these are EXCLUSIVE to Stampin' Up!

If you would like to know more about this great machine, please do not hesitate to contact me - how about hosting a workshop and have a chance to try out the machine.

If you would like a free copy then please contact me. Click the link in the side bar to see either a flash version or download a PDF copy.

There are so many great products that my wish list is really LONG!

The first card I would like to share is one that I made for a swap with the rest of the Tartan Stampers.

I have used the new Seam Binding Ribbon in Crumb Cake and ruched it along the Top Note Die. It is really soft and drapes really well.

Stamp: Just Believe
Ink: Rich Razzleberry
Card: Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Crumb Cake
Dies: Bigz Top Note, Sizzlits Little Leaves, Embosslits Beautiful Wings, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impression Embossing Folder

The next 2 projects show how versatile the Big Shot can be. The Bigz dies can be used to cut a variety of materials - the list is huge - contact me for more information.

I picked up this wonderful felt when I was at the SECC at the beginning of March. It is such good quality and perfect for these brooches. The colours are so close the Stampin' Up! colours it is incredible.
