Big Shot Embossing Mats – OH MY!!

I love thinlits, framelits, and edgelits, and really anything that cuts or embosses paper to give a wonderful cut and impression.  Now, I’m ready to step-up my cards with the new Big Shot Embossing Mats from Stampin’ Up!

Ever since I saw the video below, I have been looking through my stash of thinlits, framelits, and edgelits to see which ones I want to use with the Embossing Mats.  Believe me –  You’re going to do the same thing!

I’m going to practice using the new mats and then will show you some projects that I’ve made.  In the meantime, enjoy the video.  You can also order the mats by going to the product picture below.  Click on the picture and you’ll go to my on-line store.

Happy stamping!
