So... over at Paper Vineyard, we were supposed to design a gambling-themed project (or bunco) using Sizzix die and embossing products... no other company's dies/embossing folders were to be used. Nope! Couldn't do it!!! I DID, however, use the Sizzix Big Shot with the Cuttlebug Clockworks embossing folder and Spellbinder's dies. Is it MY fault that the Sizzix Big Shot is compatible with just about every die/embossing folder out there?!? And how unfair is it to ask me to NOT play with all my toys.... REALLY?
When I first sat down to create this challenge project, THIS is what I created:
Now, not to question anyone's powers of observations, but this project is NOWHERE NEAR a gambling/bunco project!!! hahahahahahahaha! I was just so inspired by the new Technique Tuesday Love Makes The World Go Round, that I was moved to use it and went in a totally different direction when I sat down to complete my challenge project. Then, once it was complete, I realized that I was SOOOO off-task that I needed to do another project. NO WAY was I going to be able to follow the rules on this one. You all would never believe that I'm the one who created the challenge in the first place.... hahahahahahahahha! Go figure!
So, for the above projects I used my sewing machine, Sizzix Big Shot, Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations Gears die, Cuttlebug Clockworks embossing folder, Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations Mini Paper Rosettes die, EK Success Card Suit punch, Martha Stewart circle cutter, Prima Fairytale flowers, Spellbinders Nestabilities dies, DCWV paper - embellishments - and chipboard letters, Cosmo Cricut paper, Bazzill paper and bling, and finally, Creative Impressions Red Swirl Ribbon.
