While sharing crafting time with friends on Friday, Carol Smuts brought & shared her new Holiday Cuttlebug embossing folders with us and I wanted to show you a couple of creations I have made using these folders. She also directed me to the CuttlebugChallenge Blog and wanting to play along this week, I have created with this first card. The theme of the challenge is to use your cuttlebug and GLITZ. Here I have cuttlebugged on silver metallic cardstock then used Green & Silver Stickles to add Glitz to parts of the embossed image. My sentiment is a K&Co. chipboard and the flowers are from Prima.
Using the same embossing folder on red cardstock and adding Green & Gold Stickles I was able to quickly create this beautiful card. My image/sentiment are from the Crafty Secrets Vintage Christmas stamp set and I've used this card for the Heartwarming Vintage/Crafty Secrets Challenge for December over on PaperCraft Planet. Using these embossing folders certainly make quick work of holiday cards!!
Speaking of QUICK CARDS ... this creation took all of 5 minutes! Boy, you can't beat that during this busy holiday time!! Using Holiday Green cardstock and this new holiday embossing folder ... my card is all but complete!! I've simply placed it on a burgundy card base, punched out a few circles & snowflake, added a touch of Stickles on the snowflake and viola ... card complete!! How's that for quick card making!!!!
Either of these first two cards also qualify for the Stamp Something - Glitz Challenge so I'll be adding them to that blog challenge as well. Love to share new ideas and I'm really thrilled with the quick turnout of these creations.
Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you are enjoying your weekend ... maybe decorating with Christmas music in the background ... or shopping online with the same music playing! Whatever you are doing ... hope it has put a smile on your face! Enjoy!
