Just Add Ink #149

Just Add Ink is having a "Big Shot Blog Hop" to kick off 2013, so the challenge this week is  to use the Big Shot or any diecut machine on your card, scrapbooking page or box/project etc. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut a Chrysanthemum in two layers from American Crafts patterned paper, and a punch to cut a butterfly.  A stamped sentiment from Stampin' Up's Sassy Salutations set finished off the card.



Here's a closer look at the diecut and butterfly.....



This next card was a free design from the Silhouette Online Store last week, and I just wanted to share this one to show you what this awesome machine can do.......





Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Two gorgeous cards. I love the die you used for the mosaic flower. It is stunning, and I wish I could copy it. Just so artistic looking.

  2. Both cards are just gorgeous Louise! I love the DSP in the background showing thru the Chrysanthemum - it gives a wonderful effect. I also love the cleanness of your cards! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week!

    1. Thanks Narelle- I think Cleans & Simple is definitely the style I'm most comfortable with, although I do try other styles from time to time :-)
