Occasions Mini Products I heart them!

Can we say obsessed?   Yes a little -- I have been patiently waiting to post my creations until the mini was out.  They are just so exciting lots of Big Shot items that make life simple for crafters.

So this is a card I created for a card swap I participated in.  My challenge was to use the Candy Conversations stamp to create a card.  I started with a base of Crumb Cake and then used the Edgelits to cut that beautiful edge with my Big Shot then embossed it with our new embossing folders that match the edgelits die.
I used crumb cake to distress the edges of the card and then used Early Espresso to stamp the three hearts from Take it to Heart.  I stamped the Candy Conversation in EE as well.
I layered Wisteria Wonder that had been run through the polka dots embossing folder for the Big Shot.  I also rounded the edges on all layers to add more detail.  
I used the small heart punch and silver glitter paper to add some sparkle to the card.
I added a piece of The Sweet Shop DSP to add detail to the inside of the card.  
This stamp is one of the a-la-carte type of stamps which I do love but I have seen some other demos who have cut this stamp apart to use it separately on clear mounts -- hmmmmmm  not sure I have that much courage but its a great idea!!

I was wondering if the small heart punch would work with this stamp at all, I love the idea of having the cute glittery heart in the middle, TFS!
