Big Shot Class

At April's class we concentrated on using the Embossing folders and shared tips on how to do selective embossing.

Here are our 3 projects.  For the first card we made I showed how to line up your clear cutting mats so that you don't get a line across your paper when embossing only half of a layee.  On the tag we embossed using the Oval Designer Frame and this one can often crease in the corners so I showed some tips on how to reduce this.

I focused on the new In Colours and the Flower Vase stamp from Button Buddies, such a great set suitable for so many occasions.  We also used "Borderlines" and "Your'e a Gem" stamps which are soon to disappear when the Spring Mini Catalogue finishes at the end of this month.

The next card is a bit of a technique, selective/double embossing (that's my name for it!) and this is something I would have to show in person as it's just toooo difficult to explain.  If you would like to see this in action why not book a party, invite your friends around for a creative evening and learn something new.

Last but not least this cute little Pillow Box die cut with the Big Shot.  Here we also used the Oval Designer Frame in a way that we didn't get lines from the edge of the embossing folder where we didn't want them!
I played around for ages getting the right layers for these embossing techniques and now just need to remember them but the results are great.

Fancy coming along to the next Big Shot Class in May, to book your space at or call me on 07717 068909 / 01452 740532
