Here's our first "wish granted" post. A lot of you have wished for more ideas on how to use their cuttlebug. Well, most of us have bought the Cuttlebug to use the embossing folders, so to start easy and gentle, here's a few samples with different degrees of difficulty.
As we said when we started the "wishing well": "And you never know.......... there might be something to win too.... "
And so there is... Not only for one of the person who made that wish, but also for another one who will leave a comment on this post. (Remember, you must be a *follower* to enter all contests/freebie/candy going on this blog)
So this time it's wish granted for....
(please email me to give me your snail mail address)
And you will be sent on of the new embossing folders we have in stock:
Not telling you which one... it's got to be a surprise ;)
So here we go with the different techniques:
Dawn used the Crafts Too Christmas Tree embossing folder on a white card, cut it out and decorated it with Dew Drops. Very effective and elegant...
Then Ria used Crafts Too Butterfly embossing folder on a red card and used sandpaper to make the butterflies stand out. She also used one of the Gorjuss Girls stamp (Flower girl), Martha Steward punch and Copic Markers and Spellbinders Nestabilities.
Poupette took it a step further, using ink on her embossing folders.
For the first example, she used ink with and Indentz embossing folder, brayering the ink all over the folder first and then embossing the white card. Quite effective, isn't it?
On her second sample, Poupette brayered Walnut Stain Distress ink pad onto the Cuttlebug Script folder to emboss her tag. She also embossed a butterfly using the Swiss Dot folder and highlighted the dots with ink.
Finally, Isa (our newest DT owl) has made a gorgeous sample too.
Here's what she had to say about her card:
"For the background, I embossed with the Cuttlebug Christmas Countdown folder and distressed the cardstock with sand paper and ink. I then added Glossy Accent and glitter on some embossed designs.
I used the same embossing folder to make the star and I added gold Eco Green paint with my finger on the embossed parts.
The frame is a white paper with gold paint and glitters.
I added Stickles on the butterfly."
We hope you have enjoyed this.
