I'm not even going to mention what day it is! If you are a normal blog follower, you are probably tired of hearing it by now! Oh, what the heck... YAY, it's Friday!!!!!
Did you know that we carry Cuttlebug Embossing Folders? Yes, we do and we plan to start carrying some of the Tim Holtz and Basic Grey Embossing Folders from Sizzix! If you haven't had a chance to play with these, you should give it a try! I absolutely love them! The embossing adds so much texture and depth to a variety of projects!
I mostly use them for creating cards, but they can be used as elements on layouts and for making your own embellishments! We've received some of the new Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Sets and I had a chance to play with a couple of them. I made two quick cards to get ready for the upcoming holidays. Check them out:
Time For Treats Card by Me (Floren)!
I used the Cuttlebug Mini Monsters Set for this card. I thought the candy background would be perfect! I embossed a piece of Core'dinations Black Magic paper and rubbed it with a file to bring out the design. The sticker is left over from last years Bo Bunny Boo Crew collection.
Joy of Christmas Card by Me (Floren)!
For this card I used the Cuttlebug Heritage Set. I simply love that frame and have a feeling you will be seeing this design a lot more on my cards! The paper is a simple white linen paper. I stamped my sentiment and put some Prima Flowers and Leaves in the bottom corner. I also added some Basic Grey Bling around my sentiment. Sorry the colors are a bit off. Here is a closer look:
It's hard to tell, but the bling and flower center are more of a bright red. I'm still not sure how to fix the colors in Photoshop. Hey, at least my pictures are turning out a little better! LOL!
I just love these Embossing Folders! The great thing about the sets is that you get 4 folders - two 5x7 and two A2 size (4 1/4" x 5 1/2"). We also sell Cuttlebug singles if you don't need that many or just want to try them out! They are super economical and very easy to use!
What's that you say? A giveaway? Okay, you've talked me into it! You know the drill: leave me a comment by Sunday at 11:59 pm and you will be entered into a drawing to win a Cuttlebug single folder! We'll have a random drawing and announce the winner on Monday, August 16.
Please be aware that you will need some kind of an embossing machine in order to use these folders. I have the little Sizzix embossing machine, but they can be used with a Cuttlebug machine, a Sizzix Big Shot or some other roller type machine and I believe they can also be used with the Spellbinders machine as well. Good luck!!!
