Here's another great project for the Big shot. It's a sour cream container. It holds quite a bit of candy and is super easy to make! This one is made with window sheets and is run through the Big Shot with Finial Press. Take a quarter of a sheet of paper and tape it together the short way. Then pinch one end and tape it close. Then pinch the opposite end the other way and you have this great little container. Mine is kept close the the ribbon but you could tape, use a brad or eyelet, or any other item to keep it closed.

Stamps: Flight of the Butterfly
Ink: Old Olive
Cardstock: Certainly Celery
Accessories: Window Sheets, butterfly punch, celery ribbon, dimensionals, sticky strip, crop-a-dile

I LOVE the way this easel card came out. I don't use this stamp set very often and I had Abi help me pick out stamps again. She gave me this one. The bird is stamped using the baby wipe technique. To do the baby wipe technique you need a baby wipe and some reinkers. I place my baby wipe on a stryofoam plate and then drop ink onto it. Make sure your inked area is as big as your largest stamp. Use this as your ink pad! (Make sure you clean the stamp between inkings.) Pretty cool, huh?

Stamps: A Good Friend
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Cameo Coral, Bordering Blue, Brocade Blue
Cardstock: Bordering Blue, Brocade Blue, Whisper White
Accessories: Baby wipes, Pumpkin Pie, Cameo Coral, Bordering Blue, Brocade Blue re-inkers, Pumpkin Pie corduroy buttons, dimensional
Hope you enjoyed my projects!
Happy Stampin'!
