I love fun new gadgets! Have you tried using Stampin’ Up!’s Party Pennant Bigz Die with the Coaster Board yet?
Lots of people like to make banners to decorate fireplaces, stair rails and front doors. Stampin’ Up! has some Banner Simply Created Kits and I have to confess to really liking the Chalkboard Banner version. I’ve got plans for a welcome banner for my front door for fall with that one!!!
What I’m especially excited about is the new Party Pennant Bigz Die. You can make your own banners with this one great tool for the Big Shot.
I’ve actually been working on a Big Shot class for customers for August. Stampin’ Up! is having a Big Shot sale and I want to have a class ready to give to my customers who take advantage of that sale. While working on the class, I finally used some of the coaster board with the Party Pennant Bigz Die. LOVE it! Endless possibilities await for creativity!
I loved the shapes created so much that I decided to CASE a project from the catalog.
I’ve used the coaster board for the bottom piece. How beautiful is that shape? Won’t this be a pretty touch layered on a card? Wouldn’t it look great as a gift tag around a nice gift bottle?
I’ve actually spritzed it with Baked Brown Sugar reinker mixed with rubbing alcohol. That darkened it up quite a bit, but I like the look.
The smaller piece is one of the other shapes cut in Whisper White card stock. Personally, I’m already planning and creating gift tags with these shapes. They are fabulous.
One of the great things about the Bigz Dies is that you can cut several pieces of card stock at once, making quick work of your cutting task.
Tomorrow when I have more time to play, I plan to make this a card topper. I’ll share that with you tomorrow. I was just so happy with the shape of this, I had to share it with you. I think this will rank up there with the Top Note Bigz Die for great cards and projects.
