Sexy Bestie

Here's an awesome Bestie from Sherri Baldy.  These stamps are called Fluffy Girls.  I created this card for the current contest on the SSS Challenge blog. If you create any Sherri Baldy cards you can play along by going to the SSS Challenge blog and sharing your creations there.  This wonderful stamp is called Img 201.  You can find all of Sherri Baldy's amazing stamps at her store, www.MyBestiesShop.com

Question of the day:  so the question of the day is, Do you have a die cutter?  what type?  do you use it?

I have a very old red sizzix, a newer sizzix bigz (think they call it that, it's not the largest one, but bigger than the old red one), and a Cuttlebug, oh wait, and a mini size sizzix, a sidekick.  LOL

OK, OK, and I at one time had a quickkutz rolling type that I gave away, and a Making memories cutter that I got rid of, and I have a Cricut.  LOL, feel like I have been to confession.  HA!

How about you?

I just love die cutting and am lucky that my mom shares her Sizzix and Spellbinder machines with me. I used nested shape dies the most but just love cute critters and dies that don't have too many tiny pieces. Your card is gorgeous Holley!

Cute card Holley - and thank you so much for your lovely message on my most recent blog post - can't wait to see you use your lace in a similar way, as you have such a beautiful and enviable lace collection!

Mostly I use my eBosser as I have a bad shoulder and the electric motor saves a lot of pain. I also have the big Spellbinders Platinum which is a bit too 'heavy' to use and the little Prizm which is fab for small dies.
I've recently had to bring my old Cuttlebug back into service to use with my GoPress&Foil as they seem to be the best combination!

Hi Holley- I love your card and your ability to color amazes me!!!! I have a sizzix machine and a cricut - the original machine that doesn't hook up to the computer. I love the red sizzix dies, green and yellow, too, because they cut fabric and I also Quilt. My favorite of all your blog candy cutters is the stiletto shoe! What a beautiful girlfriend card that would make! Hint! Hint! From Austin

I have a Grand Calibur and a Gemini. The Gemini has enabled me to carry on die cutting without having pain in my shoulder. It has been a real Godsend. Love the card and fabulous colouring xx

Susan T. said...

Beautiful card, and as always, your coloring is amazing! I have both a Sizzix and a Cricut. I especially love stamps with matching/coordinating dies. I’m currently trying to build my collection of “masculine” sets - ephemeral type especially.

Shelley said...

Ooh La La, she is a cutie. I still only have my little green cricut cuttlebug. Love that thing!

ionabunny said...

Cute card. I have the original red sizzix, a sidekick and a big shot. The bigshot is used most days. I love die cutting and embossing. HUgz

Virginia M. said...

Holley,

I still have, love, and use my old red six in, I have the big shot, I have cuttlebone, the Ellison little thing looked like a purse, and I have Tim Holts vagabond, oh and does Cricut count? I have several of those too😂 about the card, you gotta love a “fluffy” girl lol

sarah naqvi said...

Susan B. said...

Wonderful coloring!

rachel duong said...

I love your card. I have a cuttlebug and love it. She is adorable and fun. I really enjoy humorous stamps that aren't always serious. We need to laugh and smile more!

Amy Martin said...

Love this image. She is adorable. Wonderful coloring too. I have a bigshot and a cuttlebug. I use the bigshot more but do use them both.

Michele said...

I HAVE A CUTTLEBUG, A BIG SHOT AND AN OLD RED SIZZIX! LOVE DIE CUTTING!

sammi said...

Oh my goodness, Holley, I love your card! This fluffy lady reminds me of me! LOL! As for today's question, I have a Brother Scan N cut and an original vagabond. I'm not much of a die kinda gal. I'd rather stick with stamps amd embellishments. I rarely do any die cutting.

Michelle said...

I have a Big Shot, Vagabond, Silhouette and Brother Scan N Cut. I love embossing folders and die cutting.

Michelle B. said...

I had that old school sizzix red one too, lol...I have a cuttlebug somewhere in my closet, and a big shot. I want to get a cricut and also a big shot pro? If that's the one where young can do bigz and bbn bigz xl dies.

Trish said...

Hi Holley, lovely image and fab card.
I have a Grand calibur and a Vagabond xx

Jean said...

I have a vintaj and a Teresa Collins Mbosser. I do not use either as much as I should! Fun card!!

Melodyscraps, mixed media goddess said...

I love those besties!

I have a cuttlebug and a cricket. I use my cuttlebug more than my cricket because I have easier access. My craft space is small and neither is permanently set up.

Jackie Trinder said...

Hi Holley this is a gorgeous card. I have a Spellbinders Platinum die cutting machine. I haven't broken it yet. Take care. Hugs Jackie

Lucie Horowitz said...

This one is my favorite so far. Great card. I have a Vagabond and Cricut, but don't use the cricut that much.

Vickie Kertz said...

I have a cricut and a big shot

Pat said...

My, my,Holley. Bless you my child, you are forgiven. Now goeth out and buy the NEW and improved Cricut. LOL
I have a very OLD and almost but not quite useless EPIC 6. Never heard of it? No one has, but I got it!! LOL It does use the Spellbinder dies and all the very thin dies that other companies offer. I use it often enough to keep it from gathering dust.
And I also have a Cricut Expression, another outdated machine. But I have a couple dozen cartridges, and as long as it works, I'm keeping it! LOL

Sandra van Blaricum said...

You made a beautiful card with this image!!
I just got spoiled by a friend with a new die cutter, the old one refused duty after 12 years!

Now I have the Trouvaille, an A4 size, such a fabulous thing to work with, very light to turn, i can use it with one hand without holding the machine in place!

Christine said...

That's a cheeky gal there.
I have a Grand Calibur which will have its own dedicated cutting area in my new craft room. I have not used it as much as I should've because there wasn't enough space before. Really looking forward to using my stash of dies.

Cindy Holmes said...

Hello there! I am a newbee here! I just started to follow you! I love your gal card! I have a Sizzix Big Shot! I really like it! But at some point when I am rich and famous! LOL!!!! I would really like to get the Scan-n-cut machine!

Stacy H-W said...

I have several but my favorite is my big shot! Love your card Holley!!

Anonymous said...

Lovely image and card good job she's got those feathers I have a cuttlebug and grand calibre use cuttlebug most. And again won't let me publish. Jackie p

Kathy said...

I have a big sht, a spellbinder, a cricket and a cameo. I use the big shot the most by far, but each machine has its use. I love did cuts for cards and scrapping. Today's card is great--coloring with those wicked reds is super.

{S} said...

Ooh an old school sizzix?!? Damn girl! I’m using a 10 year old Sizzix big shot! Refurbished it myself with parts the company generously sent to me.

Shell B. said...

Uh La La....fab card Holley!
Spellbinder Calibur

Laura Murphy said...

I don't have one :(

Vivian Foo said...

No I do not have a die cutter yet.

DJ said...

I have a cuttlebug which I love. I heard that they are possibly ending production of this. I love the dues and embossing folders.

Mel C said...

I use a Big Shot and love dies! Your card is so cute!

Gwyneth said...

I have several die cutting machines - I use for different purpouses. Smaller ones are great when I'm not up to lifing the larger ones or if there is nobody about to do it for me. Got the Baby Blue for small jobs. SNAP is great for medium dies and I've got the battery for it so can work away from power source without having to hand turn. Crossover is great for changeing mouth depth so can use for cutting material using patchwork dies, and large Cut'n'Boss is great as it does large dies without having to hand turn, but does need to be attached to electricity. There's another two around as well that come out if nephews are crafting with me - one prefers the Cuttlebug.

Karenladd said...

I love using dies and I do love my Sizzix Big Shot. I also have a Spellbinders machine but the Big Shot is my go-to

Em Louise Fairley said...

Such a sassy stamp. I have a Sizzix Big Shot

Rhonda Miller said...

I love your card.
I have a Sizzix Big Shot and a Cricut. I use them both quite a bit.

Shabneez said...

Super card Holley! Yes I have a Sizzix Big Shot and that's it. Shabneez x

Gaye Valle said...

I have a Big Shot and a Cricut. I recently got a Gemini Jr. as well. Love die cuts!

Nikki C said...

I still only have one a big kick and that works just fine for me :)

vinita jain said...

So feminine and cute one! I love my Teal color Big shot my only die cutter friend and can't live without it!

Twylia Bell said...

I have a Big Shot, Big Shot Plus, a Cuttlebug, an older Cricut (loaning it to my cousin right now), and a Silhouette Cameo. I want an electronic cutter like the Gemini but will have to wait on that.

jeanchaneyaz said...

What a great image, Holley! Nice blending on the skin tones.
HaHa, do I have a die cutter? How about four? I have a Cuttle Bug because it's light for taking to crops. I have a Big Shot because it can do anything at all. I have a Gemini Jr. for everyday because it's easier to work with, and I have a Side Kick for smaller pieces. Love them all!

DonnaMundinger said...

I'm a little late to the party but will try to get caught up. Such a cheeky gal here. Too cute! I love dies and have a Cuttlebug and Sizzix Big Shot and Spellbinders Grand Caliber. xxD

Sindhu said...

Cute card...I have big shot and I love die cutting more ...

Linda Dampier said...

Die cutters .... YES I have died cutter's. Cuttlebug, Big Shot, Cut n Boss, Spellbinders mini one, another mini but I can't think of the name, just got Caterpillar, Tattered Lace large one. Why isn't my brain working, I know these names, but they are hiding in some of the empty space in my brain ... lol

Frances Freeman said...

I have a few I use my cuttlebug with thin ties the most. It’s small and easy. I do have tiny size that does smaller dues but it’s too cute to use haha. I have big shot but too clunky for me and I have the Cricut and scan & cut

Blue Kube said...

Super cute card! I have a very old Cuttlebug and I love it. We've made some beautiful art together, LOL.

StampNK said...

This is such a cute card and I love the name of the collection. I use a Sizzix Big Shot die machine and love to use die cuts because my stamping skills are limited.

Jeanie Ellis - Scrapbookingmamaw said...

Cute and sassy! Love it! I have a Big Shot and a Cameo 3. xxx

Dana M said...

What a sweet and playful card! I have a big shot at home and a cuttlebug at our cabin.
