Table Setting Die Pumpkin Card

23 Nov

Here’s a cute idea using the spiral from the Big Shot Table Setting Die.  Cut out the spiral and then cut down the spiral to desired size.  Add leaves and a stem and you have a cut pumpkin!

Big Shot Scallop Turkey Card

17 Nov

Created by Kathy Alt

Dies:  Scallop Circle, Flower Daisies #2 (nose)

Punches:  Jumbo Snowfalke (feet), 1/4″ circle (eyes)

Accessories:  Circle Scissors Plus

1.  To create the card, fold a 5 1/2″ X 8 1/2″ sheet of cardstock in half and place on the scallop circle die so that the fold is just inside the scallop.

2.  Cut another scallop from the chocolate chip CS and adhere to the front of the card.

3.  To create the feathers, cut various colors of scallops and then cut off a 4-scallop section and fold in half.

4.  The body circles are 2 1/2″ and 3″ in diameter.

5.  Cut off a petal of the daisy created from the Daisies #2 die for the nose.

Have fun with this one…don’t forget, you could shrink it down and use the scallop circle punch as the body…think about using it for a peppermint pattie cover!

Great Wall Decor You Can Make

9 Nov

Oh the treasures I’m finding as I go through pictures.  Today I found some more great pictures from convention displays.  These are some terrific ideas for creating gifts or things for you to use to decorate your own walls.




Created using our Build-a-Bear Big Shot Line.


Yes, this was done for Halloween, but think of the possibilities for Christmas and spring!  Better stock up on the sweet treat cups while they’re still available.


What a great winter piece and very simple!

Creating masculine cards can be difficult.  Here’s one that uses the set Lots of Bots.

Punches:  Star, 1″ circle, word window

To create the wrench, punch a word window, then punch out one end of the opening with the 1″ circle punch.  The other end is created by punching the star and then punching that out with the 1″ circle punch.
