Our October Stamping to Share Monthly Demonstrator Meeting was just a ton of fun! Our swap theme challenge was to incorporate the Big Shot into our cards or 3-D projects. Enjoy!!

Mary Dagostino brayered white craft into onto her spiderweb embossing folder, ran it through the Big Shot, and then, while the ink was still wet, sprinkled Iridescent Ice embossing powder over the ink and used her heat tool to create this amazing and sparkling Halloween card. The spider legs were made with the Square Punch, the body of the spider with the Scallop Circle Punch and the bat up in the corner is from the stamp set called Googly Ghouls. Mary ran out of the mini self stick Googly Eyes that SU sells and so on the bat, she put pearls and then used a Sharpie Marker to make black dots on the pearls. It looked awesome!!

Sharon Merritt made this super cute 3-D witch’s hat for our swap. I was so impressed when I saw her making them at our September Stamp and Train session that I used this project at my September Big Shot classes. In addition to the spiderweb embossing folder, she used the Peekaboo Frames Die to make a little door for her witch to peek out of. The little witch is from the Googly Ghouls stamp set.

Liz Hanf used the Stripes embossing folder and then distressed it with ink to make the really cool background on this card. Then, it was the Labels Framelits and a little more Stripes embossing to create her top layers. The stamp set, Elementary Elegance, is retired and from last years Sale-a-bration.

Mary Smallidge created a pretty fall medallion card using all kinds of Big Shot supplies! The stamp sets were Everything Eleanor, Teeny Tiny Wishes and Daydream Medallions. She used the coordinating Floral Framelit set to cut out the stamped medallions. The lacy circle is from the large sizzlit die called Delicate Doilies.

Mary Bellis used a couple of embossing folders and Labels Framelit layers to build this beautiful card. The stamp sets are Day of Gratitude and Petite Pairs.

Irene Boesen used the Petite Pocket Die to make this cute Vampire candy holder that she decorated with a variety of punches. The candy bar on the inside was a mini milk chocolate Hershey’s bar. I know because I just ate it for breakfast! (with coffee of course!)

This super cute scarecrow card was created by Debby Filiowich with the Top Note die. She cut off the outside piece of the top note around the face and then used these cut off pieces to make the scraggly hair. The white part of the eyes is the bird wing from the 2 Step Bird Punch! I tell ya, the creativity in this group just never ends!

This double pocket envelope was not part of the swap . . . but part of our Show and Tell area. Barb Manship made A LOT of these and put them out as table favors at her daughter’s wedding reception. She folded it in such a way that there was plenty of room through the middle of the double pocked to put a rolled thank you scroll. It’s just lovely!

Laura Erickson was one of our October project leaders and this is what we made . . . angel Christmas ornaments!! They are so beautiful! Several of my customers have begged that I show them out to make these so we will – at our monthly Big Shot class on October 30.
