October Blog Hop: Big Shot Projects

Welcome to the second “Inky Divas Blog Hop!” Each month on the second Friday of the month, our team is doing a blog hop with a specific theme. This month, we’ve chosen: Big Shot projects!

For my project, I have chosen to use 2 Bigz L Dies: The Mini Milk Carton (#117310) and the new Peekaboo Frames (#124587) that I used in my post yesterday.  I created a cute little gingerbread house that you could use as an ornament in your Christmas tree.  I remembered when I was in grade 4, we all did a little house with a milk carton (a real one that time!) for Christmas and our teacher made a village with all our little houses under the Christmas tree, in the classroom!  So ever since I saw the Mini Milk Carton Die, I really wanted to create a little house!  I thought that the stamp set Jolly Bingo Bits was the perfect one to create a gingerbread house, with the candy cane, the candy and the gingerbread man! I hope you will like it, I had so much fun making it!!! So here’s my Big Shot project (front and back view):

New Blog Hop!

This is the first monthly  “Inky Divas Blog Hop”! I’m so blessed to be part of such a fabulous stampers group that I thought it would be nice to join this blog hop and showcase some of the other stampers in my group.

Each month on the second Friday of the month, I will participate in a blog hop with a  specific theme. This month, we’ve  chosen: FALL projects!

There are 3 talented stampers on this Blog Hop and I know you’ll love all their projects so make sure you go check them out too!

I made this card for my “Designer and specialty papers class” (which is scheduled on October 18, at 7 p.m. It’s not too late to register!!!)  I thought the colors made me think about Fall and since I didn’t have a stamp especially for Thanksgiving, I just decided to put the words “Thank you” because there is so many people in my life I want to thank!!!

The flower was made with the Owl punch (118074) and the center is the middle part cut off from the Lace Ribbon Border punch (122362).  I love those two punches because there’s so much stuff you can do with those!  Make sure to check my posts next week, as I will show you all the different things you can do with the Owl punch!  So there’s my card:
