The Big Shot Is….


For the Birds Blendabilities

Every project…EVERY PROJECT…is improved with the Big Shot!

Imagine these adorable birds on a background of So Saffron without those perky little chevrons…or on a rectangle instead of this fun little tag.  How did I make these things happen?   THE BIG SHOT! 

The big shot is a work horse.  I’ve had mine for years and with doing stamp classes, I’m sure I use mine much more than the average stamping enthusiast.  And it just keeps cutting and texturing.

This month you can get a free stamp set and framelits bundle (including the framelits I used to crop out the tag above) with your purchase of the big shot.  That’s nearly half off the big shot!  That’s a BIG deal!

There is no time like now to invest in this great tool.  And I love the sleek black look of the Stampin’ Up! Big shot.  It looks great in any craft room.
