A couple cards ~The Cuttlebug Spot!


Cute Crawlies

Over at The Cuttlebug Spot we have a wonderful new sponsor Lily Boos Boutique! She has the most darling digi images and I was lucky enough to get to pick a favorite collection to use for a card!

Cuttlebug Highlight~ Floral Fantasy
I inked the folder with brown onto yellow cardstock.
I also added a few spots of distress embossing powder as well as some chalks.

We ended up getting a new printer AFTER I did this project. The digi image printed light gray so I went over it with a black marker. Sadly I had a great idea which played out horribly so this was my second go at these images.

This was already posted at The Cuttlebug Spot but I never posted it here so thought I would go ahead and add it in!
Dies are Cottage Cutz. I think, hands down, these are the CUTEST dies out there!

I so agree, those cottage cutz dies are the cutest ever..wish I could get some of them. You just can't buy everything, I try though. AND your little bee is adorable.

These cards are adorable Leah, and the bee is tooo cute, love the Snowman and Penguin - such detail....

Congrats on the Generations Crafting DT....

I laughed out loud at your comment on my blog - yes we were wearing summer dresses - it was 38 degrees that day!! We are literally upside down here in Oz - you are going into spring now and we are heading into autumn (fall)- It was really strange when we first emigrated here having Christmas in the middle of summer and Easter in the middle of autumn - but we're used to it now...

Don't think I could handle the cold of Scotland now....

Hugs xx
