Our Wonderful Crafting Machines.....

Hello crafting friends: The SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge has a new and fun one for you to play this week, we want you to use your favorite crafting machine or tool, I have 2 that I just can't live without.....the BIG SHOT and the MISTI.  I use this tools every single day in my craft room, I can't picture my crafting life without them so, here is my card that uses both of this wonderful machines that have changed the crafting world forever.

I used a lot of my stash of die cut flowers done with the now retired SU "Botanical Blooms", this is one beautiful die set, it has a stamp set but the dies are more than enough by themselves.
I saw THIS CARD on Pinterest and I decided to use some of my already cut flowers, all I did is to sponge them a bit with distress inks. 
I also had a strip of black card stock that I had heat embossed in white using the "Bordering Blooms" stamp set from SU and I thought I could incorporate it on my card, even if the design doesn't look like the flowers.
The sentiment was die cut with oval dies and stamped with Versafine black ink.


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

I used some scraps of the DSP to decorate the inside, the sentiment is from an old Flourishes set called "Sweet Peas" and the flower on the corner also from my stash.

I hope you stop by the SHOPPING OUR STASH blog and check out my teammates beautiful creations then, come and play along.
Please let us know what craft machine or tool you used to create your cards.

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping,
Hugs from Maria .

Wow, Maria!! It's hard to imagine crafting without my Big Shot these days. Sometimes I might use just one die, but it sure makes a difference. Your flower arrangement is gorgeous! Bet you're glad you got that set before it retired. Seems SU doesn't stick around long. Fantastic colors and LOVE the black border with white embossing. So beautiful!
