Have I mentioned lately how much I love my Big Shot?  I have owned lots of die cut machines of all shapes and sizes.  But the one I use almost every time I do any kind of crafting is my Big Shot.  And this sale is the first time Stampin' Up! has marked it down for customers to purchase so it is a great time to take the Big Shot plunge.  Already own a Big Shot?  They make wonderful Christmas Presents for the crafter on your list.

And In honor of the one day sale on the Big Shot, I am sharing this project from this past weekend's Christmas Stampin' Buffet that uses that blessed little machine that I love so much:
Colors: Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla.  Stamps: Ornament Keepsakes.  Big shot: Scallop Circle Bigz Die, 3-1/2" Circle Originals, Holiday Ornaments Framelit Collection, Lacy Brocade Textured Embossing Folder.  Accessories: Cherry Cobbler Scalloped Tulle Ribbon, 1/8" Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon, and Pearl Jewels. 
This ornament was inspired by a similar one created by Jamie Hurley at Unique Ink. And of course, I saw it on Pinterest. To make the ornament three-dimensional, I stamped it three times on Very Vanilla and cut them out with the matching framelits.  Love that they match up exactly so there is no need to hand cut these cuties.  Then I scored them in the middle and glued them together.  And I know I gush a lot about things, but this Scalloped Tulle Ribbon is so fun!  It is fairly easy to tie and is perfect for adding a little something special to your projects.  It is hard to tell from this picture, but I spritzed the entire thing with a combination of Shimmer Paint and Rubbing Alcohol in one of our newish Stampin' Spritzers (which just happen to also be on sale right now).

So what are you waiting for?  Head on over to my online store and take advantage of these great deals!
