I just HAD to share!!!

Most of you know that Stampin' Up!® has partnered with Sizzix to offer the Big Shot and exclusive dies; they'll be available for you to purchase starting September 2.
Well, I got MINE today, and have just been playing. :D I don't want to show you a LOT, but I did want to show you this card - the only thing STAMPED is the greeting. I used a LOT of ink! The maple leaf is all ink, and I used the reverse mask from cutting the leaf out from some card stock; I just filled in the cutout area with a stipple brush and Ruby Red classic ink. The card base is Sahara Sand - just because I already had it cut. :D
The pumpkin is a die that I cut, and colored the stem with Creamy Caramel, and I lowlighted (Is that a word?!?!) the main part of it with Pumpkin Pie.
The "Happy Thanksgiving" is from HOLIDAYS & WISHES, and I stamped it with Chocolate Chip ink and punched it out with our new LARGE OVAL PUNCH. (Love my punches!!!) :) Edged the punch in Pumpkin Pie, and edged the card with it, too. The pumpkin is on one thickness of dimensionals, and the punch is on two.
It was a LOT of fun to do this card!!! :) I can't wait to continue showing you new things with my new toys! :D
