Here's a look at my upcoming class at Cool Scrapbook Stuff in Poway. The class is called Christmas Joy and will be offered on Sat., August 28th at 10:00 am. People have been asking for Christmas in July, but I have been busy...this was the soonest I could manage :) I hope you like them!
This is my very last creation for the Cuttlebug blog. I made the sun green, I know it is unusual, but yellow didn't go with the colors. I embossed the sun with my Cuttlebug and the Seeing Spots embossing folder, then sanded it. You may notice the outlining I did with the black pen...the key is to do that before you emboss it, that way you aren't drawing over the bumps! I layered the sun over the patterned paper which is from the Mango Luau line by Bo Bunny.....I love the colors. I layered some paper circles I found with a flower and a bling brad and used green ric-a-rac for the stem and leaves. I hope you all like it and thanks for taking the time to look :)
Hi everyone! August is my last month doing the Cuttlebug Blog :( It will be someone else's turn to show off their creativity! I had fun designing for them....they will be looking for a new team so if any of you are interested, hop on over to the blog and apply.
The first project I did for this month is board shorts. I have made this card several times before for my classes using different papers. Here I used Bo Bunny's paper line called Mango Luau. The sticker border at the waistband of the shorts is also from the same line. I cut out the flower by hand and embossed it with my Cuttlebug and the Seeing Spots embossing folder. The center of the flower is a sticker and the leaves that frame it are pre-embossed paper leaves from Bazzil.
The theme for August is summer vacation/ splish splash over at the Cuttlebug Blog. I came up with this card.....I like unusual shapes! I used the paper line from Bo Bunny called "Mango Luau". The embossing folder I used was "Seeing Spots" from Cuttlebug and the paper leaves are from Bazzill. I embossed the green paper, which is from Coredinations, then sanded it to get the aged effect. I also embossed the orange flower with the same folder, but didn't sand it. I edged everything with brown ink which I always do because I think It adds a nice finish to each piece. Go on over to the Cuttlebug Blog to see all the designer creations!!
Here is my second project for July. Again I used the Sew American Stripe patterned paper from Bo Bunny. I also used the Velvet Blue Jean paper from them, cut out a large star and stitched it with white floss. I added Ladybug red brads at each point...also from Bo Bunny. I cut rings from tan paper using the Cuttlebug die set, CIRCLE FRAMES. Then I added some red wire with white beads , curling it to resemble fireworks! Thanks for looking :)
Here is my first project for July. I used the Cuttlebug embossing folder ALLEGRO to emboss the music on the red paper. Then I sanded it for the effect. The patterned paper I used was Sew American Stripe from Bo Bunny. The velvet paper is also from Bo Bunny, it is called Velvet Blue Jean. I cut the stars out by hand from this paper. The rings were cut from red paper using the Cuttlebug die set called CIRCLE FRAMES. I layered the stars, rings and brads and used them to embellish the front of the card and hide the seam.
