Hi, if you're looking for the BBTB2 Blog hop, please scroll down, but take a look here too, okay?
This week at The Cuttlebug Spot we're welcoming Fall. As in all of my cards for The Cuttlebug Spot I try to keep it as much Cuttlebug as possible so I was happy to have received my Pumpkin Patch folder by Tim Holtz. I embossed using Core'dinations card stock, then used a craft knife to carefully cut around the pumpkins and slid a Labels Thirteen Nestie through the opening to cut the window. I embossed the top of the mat with one of the Cuttlebug border folders from the Organic Flourish set and sanded the embossing to reveal the core color. To enhance it further I inked it a bit with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink. The interior cut out mat was the reverse side of the Core'dination card stock. The first mat was an experiment I rejected from another project. I'd swiped a numer of different Distress inks on my craft mat, spritzed them with water, and wiped my paper through the mess. I dried it with my heat gun and crumpled it up and ran another ink pad over the wrinkles. I thought that was a bit harsh so I spritzed it again. When it dried I decided to run it through the Cuttlebug using D'Vine Swirls and thought it coordinated nicely with what I had going on here so I saved it from the bin.
The third pumpkin is the Cuttlebug 3x3 embossing duo Pumpkin Spice. The mat layers were popped for dimension and the pumpkin was nestled in between. "Thanks" is from the Cuttlebug Card Making Combo, With Gratitude, cut twice and adhered slightly offset to add a bit of a shadow. To add a little bling I added peelie corners and a single gold adhesive bead. WooHoo! All Cuttlebug! Now pop on over to The Cuttlebug Spot to see the amazing creations by the rest of the DT and be sure to play along. A $50.00 gift certificat to Simon Says Stamp will be up for grabs.
