Fun Fun Fun Ahead!

As promised, the ideas are coming! Today's post highlights a new Stampin' Up! Bigz Die, "Lattice," that I think it just gorgeous! I'm showing you two different cards today so you can see the totally different looks you can get from this one die cut. Click HERE to see how the Big Show works with the dies for a better idea of what I'm describing.

The die cuts the "lattice work" that you see featured on both of these cards. I think it's so pretty layered onto a bold color and embellished with brads, ribbon and stamped images.

There is absolutely no trimming or work involved with creating the lattice. Just layer the Bigz die with the card stock and cutting pads, roll through the Big Shot Machine and Voila!
Be sure to check out the upcoming classes and events in the next few weeks. I've been having alot of fun planning them and know you won't want to miss a one! Click on the "Events" tab to the right to stay up on the latest or subscribe now to be informed!
