Hello, and welcome to our second challenge on SUO Challenges. This time, we were to make a project using the Big Shot...I actually made two. Today, I will share the one I submitted and save the other for another day.
I used the Baskets and Blooms die with a sheet of Autumn Spice designer paper from the Holiday Mini. I'm finding that this paper ALWAYS results in a WOW project. I constructed the basic unit with directions I found here. This is the same design I used for the tropical beach basket I made in July.
The flower was made with the original SU scallop circle punch. I inked the circle edges with So Saffron ink. The center is punched from Early Espresso card stock using the 1 inch punch, then sprayed with Gold Glow Smooch Spritz to give it a shimmery look. The leaves are punched out of Pear Pizzazz using the 5-petal punch. After I attached the flower center, I took my snips and cut each flower petal and gently bent them upward.
So there you have it - my project for today's challenge. I invite all of you to stop by the SUO Challenge site and see what the other team members came up with. We'd LOVE it if you'd play along with us as well!! Remember, projects must use all Stampin' Up product (either current or retired merchandise).
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit. Leave me a comment to let me know you were here.
Blessings to you!
