VC Rocks! Blog Hop - Big Shot Madness

This hop is all about the Big Shot!  I decided my theme would be Recycle on the Big Shot.  I have three projects for this hop and the first project came about with the left overs from my upcoming Build a Blossom Scrapbook Pages.  I had all of the lovely negatives left from using the Swirly Sizzlit Decorative Strip Die(which retires at the end of June).  So here is the card that I designed for using that negative image:

Swirly Fabulous Florets
Stamp:  Fabulous Florets
Always Artichoke, So Saffron, Cajun Craze
Crumb Cake, So Saffron, Always Artichoke, Whisper White
Big Shot, Swirly Sizzlit Decorative Strip, Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die, White Baker's Twine

Fun Flowers 
Side View

This cute pin was designed by Annette E. Martin and I had found it over on our demonstrator board.  I fell in love with it, so I found a pair of the DH old blue jeans and made this pin, isn't it too cute?
Accessories:  Big Shot, Bigz L Fun Flowers Die, Pin, Very Worn Blue Jeans

Butterfly Heaven
Side View
Well, I started using a different kind of dryer sheet and noticed how thick they were and thought, a flower!  The flower was made by cutting seven dryer sheets doubled on a Flowers #3 Die(Retired), then sprayed with my own home-made Rose Red Shimmer Spray(come back next week and I will have a tutorial on how to make this spray).  I was so pleased with how it turned out.  The large butterfly was made using the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die and three different papers.  I colored some of our Basic Rhinestones with a permanent ink marker and added Dazzling Diamonds around the edge.  I was very pleased with how this one came out.  I will be teaching this card in July at our technique class.

Stamp:  Swirls & Curls Verses(Summer Mini Hostess)
Confetti White(I love to use this for a card base because it is so heavy), Peach Parfait, Blushing Bride, Beyond the Garden DSP, Presto Patterns Specialty DSP(I inked this up using the Direct to Paper technique), Vellum Card Stock
Ink:  Certainly Celery, Rose Red
Accessories:  Big Shot, Flowers #3 Die(Retired), Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die, Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die, Circle Fire Rhinestone Brads, Basic Rhinestones, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Two Way Glue Pen, White Baker's Twine

Being one who is "Forever in Blue Jeans" love the blue jean flower. Can't wait to learn how to make the spritz for the dryer sheet flower. Thanks for a great share.

Brenda Hugar said...

Great projects. Love how you used the negative on the first card. The blue jean flower is to "die" for (and I just threw a pair in the trash, dang!) and I love the dryer sheet flower. I'll be back to learn how to make the spritzer!

MJ said...

Yep that first card is wonderful! And I too have lots of flowers made from old jeans. Love to re-use things. Great projects all of them.

Stace said...

Love the butterflies & the denim-I have jeans that don't fit. Now I know what I will do with them.

inkedx2 said...

Love your projects! I am going to try your flowers just need to have some dryer sheets.


Sandi said...

Wow, love everything!!! You are so awesome, thanks for sharing your talent (as always).

Holly / InkPaperStamps said...

Oh Debbie, that dryer sheet flower is just fabulous! The whole suite is just a treat. . .

Karen said...

I truly enjoyed your recycled projects! I have a perfect pair of jeans to make several of the flowers (I'm thinking craft fair now) and I definitely want to know how to make the tinted shimmer spray. I may even try the dryer sheet flower, but the ones I use are nicely scented, but not very thick.

Stamper Shirley said...

Gotta make some of those flower pins in the near future! Thanx for sharing all your creations!!!

Joan said...
