We are so lucky as demonstrators and customers to now get our hands on the Big Shot and all the fabulous exclusive accesssories that Stampin ' Up ! has to offer. Manhattan Flowers embossing folder is no exception and it lends itself so well to helping us make cards with wow factor that are clean, simple and elegant. I didn't want to buy it, but once I saw all the fabulous swaps that other demos made for our recent training sessions and how it was demo'd by Stampin' Up! I could resist no longer. It's worked well as this week's challenge from Mandi & Chrissie at Less is More is for 'White on White'. I can tell you that the whole idea of clean and simple and less is more has challenged me for sure over the past few weeks. We are all guilty in life of going one step too far and so this has helped me to focus on a different repetoire in my card making and I have to say I've really enjoyed it. Today I was aghast at their challenge, but am glad to say I'm pleased with the result. I must confess that the thanks has been done using the Big Shot with a gift sizzlit from a US friend, but I hope that come October and our new Idea Book, that we'll have a wider selection of all these wonderful accessories.
