The Big Pieces Funk

Have you ever felt like you HAD to have a set and then once you got it you were so intimidated by it that you didn't use it? That's me and Big Pieces. I love geometric shapes and patterns and fell in love with all the cards in the SCS gallery, but since I got it I've been afraid that I'd try and fail, so I haven't stamped with it. Today when I was at the LSS I saw this new Magnolia line of My Mind's Eye paper. The bright colors are ones I wouldn't normally use, but the paper just drew me in. Once I got home I decided to break out the Big and Little Pieces. This is the result. Nothing spectacular, but it was fun.... and that's what stamping should be, right?
The Big and Little Pieces are stamped on Very Vanilla with Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip and Brocade Blue and cut out with varying sizes with my Creative Memories Circle Cutting System and 1/2 and 3/4" circle punches. Used my paper piercer to punch holes and layered on varying levels of pop dots.
Real Life from the Designer Label Punch Box is stamped on Brocade Blue with Night of Navy ink and layered onto a chipboard coaster and punched out with the designer label punch. Made the ribbon slide slots with the ribbon punch and threaded both orange and chocolate ribbon through and secured with Terrifically Tacky Tape. Matted the whole thing on Chocolate Chip and a Whisper White cardbase.
