Another PPA Challenge and a sneak-peak of my Big Shot class

Hi Guys,

It's Thursday time for another Pal Paper Arts Challenge. This week is "Anything but a card" and it just so happened that I created a matchbox for Halloween for my Big Shot class on Friday.

This adorable little box uses the Matchbox die for the Sizziz Big Shot and the new Cast-a-spell Designer Paper from the current catalogue. I have also adorned it with some Pumpkin Pie striped grosgrain ribbon attached with a black brad from the vintage brads. The sentiment is stamped on a tag from the Matchbox die and is from the "Holiday Best" hostess set. I coloured it with my Old Olive, Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write Markers. Too cute!

This next card showcases the Butterflies Die and the top note. Yes, that is the top note die, but it is run through the Big Shot twice! How cool is that? I have used the Razzleberry Lemonade Patterned paper for this card and the colours Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo & Crushed Curry. The sentiment is from my FAV sentiment set "Teeny Tiny Wishes" and I just adore that Modern Label punch!

The last card I am going to share with you today also uses the Top note die and this time is is punched twice. Once using Bashful Blue and the second time using some Night of Navy DSP from the Hostess Pattern Paper pack. The adorable little birds is from the Sizzlets set "Birds & Blooms" and the "Peace" sentiment is from the Decorative Strip Die. Lots of dies on this one. And what a pretty Christmas/Seasonal card.

I will share the last card with you on Saturday as it is also my swap card for the RazzleDazzle event that I am attending in London that day. So I want to wait to post the card.

There is still space remaining for my Xmas Card & Big Shot class this Friday, cost for each is $20 or $35 if you wish to take both. I will be posting the remaining Xmas cards for you tomorrow along with the WINNER from my "100 Posts contest".....finally.....sorry for the wait guys, I have been sooooooo busy getting ready for the two classes and the Saturday event.
