Cuttlebug

Make a Wish

Happy Friyay everyone!

The theme for this week’s Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is ‘Distress it’ and instead of pulling out my distress inks, I pulled out my sanding blocks. Seriously can’t remember when I last used them.

For my card, I used some old Core’dinations cardstock and a very old Cuttlebug embossing folder. I sanded down the embossed image to reveal the kraft core.

I added a sentiment die cut from Penny Black and also distressed the edges of the card. To finish it off, I was going to add some Stickles but decided to use some cork dots that I had. They look a little heavy in the photo, I think they look better in real life!

I’m also entering this into the current Casology challenge – ‘Wish’.

Thanks for stopping by!

You rock!

Hi everyone!

The current AAA Cards challenge is embossing – could be dry embossing, heat embossing or both! I chose to do both!

I covered a Cuttlebug embossing folder with ink to create the embossed white star background which I then cut using a start Lawn Fawn die. I then covered the stars with some Nuvo Aqua Glimmer Gloss for a bit of shimmer.

I added a sentiment from Krumspring stamps which I had heat embossed using sliver embossing powder.

Thanks for looking!
