It's Cuttlebug Time!!

Wednesday I had a Cuttlebug Christmas card class at the AZ Scrapbooking store in Green Valley, AZ. Had 5 wonderful ladies and they all said they had a great time. Well, I'm just thrilled! Anyway, I had kits for 8 so when I got home I started playing! Now, the stamped images are on WHITE paper and the background behind the cards is WHITE! Beats me why my camera or my computer changes it but it's not the cream color showing up. But, I do like the cream! So, here's what I made with the leftovers....

I used Hiero Horses and Gingerbread VersaMagic ink on this card. I stamped off once on scrap paper before stamping the horses on the white layer. The text is from the Just Because set. The paper is by Core'Dinations so after I ran it through a Cuttlebug folder I sanded it and the light brown layer shows through. How cool is that! And I used the Corner Chomper to do the rounded corners. This is a great tool! You can do both 1/4" and 1/2" rounded corners and it'll hold those pesky little pieces inside a container until you release them! Plus it has fold-out "wings" to hold the paper corner in place before rounding! Just too cool. You can get a great little carrying/storage case for it, too. Love it! Ok, commercial break is over. On to the next card.... LOL!

Here I stamped the roadster from our Cars set. Still used Gingerbread VersaMagic ink. I used a little color duster to add more ink to the white stamped layer and, to distress it more, I used a Kool Cat Trax tool (I've had this forever and no, I don't remember where I got it!) to add the "chunky" color. And I used the Corner Chomper on the corners.

On this card I stamped images from the Take Pride set. Again, using Gingerbread VM ink I stamped off the elephants first before stamping on the white paper. The text is then stamped "full strength". And again, the Corner Chomper was used.

Did you know that if you click on a stamp set name or any item I have underscored that you'll go to my online catalog/shopping cart and see the product?? That way you can see all the images in the set or what the tool looks like or larger images of the ink or whatever.

I will be stamping the envelopes soon for the 2 dozen Christmas cards that I plan on giving away for blog candy this weekend. I hope to post the drawing info next week so keep coming by!

Great cards! The car is my fav. I think because you can see more of the embossing.
