Precision Base Plate and More Christmas

The Precision Base Plate is on sale this week in the Weekly Deals for $18.75 (regularly priced at $25).

“But, Nancy,” you say, “I’ve already invested in a Magnetic Platform and have my Multipurpose Platform.  Do I really need yet another piece to shuffle around my Big Shot?”

I’ve had mixed feelings about the one I bought as soon as it was available. As I was sitting here debating whether I should blog about it, another demonstrator posted my exact feelings on her blog, so I’m just going to link to it here.

My bottom line:  if you like using intricate dies (and there are a few more coming out in the Occasions Catalog) you would probably like having this in your tool chest.  I am enthusiastically endorsing the Big Shot Die Brush ($11) that’s debuting in the Occasions Catalog on January 5. If you could only purchase one Big Shot tool in the next month would suggest you wait for that.

I’m enjoying doing some black, white and metallic designs for Christmas this year.  The Winter Wonderland Designer Series Paper and coordinating stamp set, Wonderland, have been great for this.  Many of the paper designs feature gold, but this card lets the silver shine!

After stamping the trees from Wonderland on Whisper White I used a Circle Framelit to cut out the circle.  I used the Fine-Tip Glue Pen to randomly adhere silver glitter…I alternatively think it looks like the trees are in front of the moon, or that there is snow falling.  Either way, I like the look.  Then the circle is mounted on a silver Metallic Foil Doily.

The Metal Rimmed Pearls are mounted on top of Silver Metallic Thread that’s wrapped multiple times around the DSP and Silver Foil panel.

Note:  I CASE’d this card from one I pinned to my Christmas 2015 Pinterest Board, but the pin doesn’t track back to the original post, so I can’t make a proper attribution – apologies to the original artist!
