This week at The Cuttlebug Spot we have a technique challenge. I have to say this has been one of my favorite challenges to date. Nilda has done a super video HERE to show how it works and I've been playing ever since. You create a chipboard cut out to help you emboss only partially with your folder, and then use that cut out to help you emboss ONLY in the blank space with your Nestie. Cool huh? This is actually the second card I created because I was so excited I actually STAMPED on it TWICE without messing up. Yea for me! Honestly it usually takes me 4 or 5 times to get a decent image when I stamp, and yes, I know all the tricks but I stink at it so I was thrilled that I didn't screw up (of course the stamps were pretty tiny, but hey, it's a start!) I used the Allegro Cuttlebug folder and a Labels Four Nestie. The kitties dancing are an ancient Boynton image stamp that I've had since dinosaurs roamed the earth and "dance" is from a set of words stamps in different fonts that you are supposed to make up poems with and for the life of me I can't find the darn box. (I just had it! Grrrrr!) The musical notes are also Cuttlebug with the bottom parts embossed with the tiny dots from the butterfly cut and emboss combo and the border punch is EK Success.
