Happy Wednesday! Time for another Be Inspired challenge from the Cuttlebug Challenge blog! This week our theme is monograms and we also got to play with tags from Elle’s Studio!
I stamped and embossed the solo h from Close to my Heart before cutting it out, I then matted it and trimmed around the edges before attaching it to the card front. I then wrote on the tag and attached it with a pretty ribbon. I think the rest of the card is pretty easy to figure out, but if you have questions please ask.
Paper:Bazzill, Cosmo Cricket Stamp: CTMH Ink: CTMH Accessories:Elle’s Studio tag, Peggy’s Pretties, Clear embossing powder, Cuttlebug (Bloom Dots).
Thank you so much for all of the kind comments on Liam’s card, he came home from school and was so happy to see that you left them for him! I am off and running again today, I also have a few projects/cards that I am working on that I will be able to share with you next week. I hope you have a great day, and thanks as always for stopping by!
Happy Wednesday! Time for another installment of Be Inspired at the Cuttlebug Challenge blog, this weeks theme is Butterflies and hearts. Our sponsor this week is Provo Craft, and one lucky participant will win a prize pack from Provo!
I am very happy with how my card turned out, I wanted to keep it simple yet pretty. I used the Cuttlebug Butterfly cut and emboss combo to cut the butterfly and then embossed it with the coordinating swirl folder, I love how easy it was to cut and then emboss the butterfly perfectly! I then added the pearls for the body and slightly curled the wings up. I finished it off by stamping and embossing the sentiment.
Paper:Bazzill, SEI (Mimosa) Stamp: CTMH Ink:CTMH, VersaMark Accessories:Cuttlebug (Butterfly Cut and Emboss combo), Kaiser Pearls, Clear detail ep, Nesties, pop dots.

When I am feeling like my batteries are low and need a good recharging nothing works better for me than a nice hot bath with some scented bath salts, a nice candle burning and a warm drink to sip on. I also like to have a craft magazine or two to browse and inspire me while I soak the stress away.
One of my all time favourite flowers are Hydrangeas, they remind me of the first house I lived in when I was little. There were huge bushes by the side of the house that I would pick flowers from and take to my Mom. I would love to plant some of these now that I am in my own house, they always make me smile.

Happy Friday! I am this weeks hostess for Fab Friday over at the Cuttlebug Challenge! This week I decided to do a sketch for everyone to play along with. The only rules I have are to have fun and play with your Cuttlebug!
For my sample, I stamped the image and coloured it with Copic markers, I then used some twine and Zip Dry glue to attach the lasso and filled in the belt buckle with some Diamond glaze for a little bit of shine. I ran the card base through the Cuttlebug with the Distressed Stripes folder and used distressing ink to give the stripes a little bit more definition, I also did this to all of the other layers. I then layered it all together, added a few small brads to the back panel and to finish it off I attached the sentiment.
Paper:Bazzill, CTMH Stamps: Pink Cat Studio (Billy Plate) Ink:Versafine (Onyx Black), Distress Ink Accessories:Cuttlebug, Copic markers, Twine, Zipdry glue, CTMH mini brads, Diamond Glaze, SU! ticket punch.
To play along hop on over to the Cuttlebug Blog where you will find my sketch, when you are done leave a comment and link to your card so that we can all check out what you make! I can’t wait to see what everyone does with the sketch! Have a great day and as always, thanks for stopping by!
