The Cuttlebug Spot #34

Hi all!!! It's Monday which means it is time for another reveal at The Cuttlebug Spot!!! June is a big time to get married which means lots of anniversaries to celebrate and that is the theme this week!!! My work this week is in honor of my Mom and Dad's 40th wedding anniversary.

My card, simple compared to my normal work but I really like it! I used a Martha Stewart card base that was pre embossed/edged that I got on clearance at WalMart - package of 40 for $3 and they had a simple "Thank You" on the front that was easily covered by PP. I then used my Textile embossing folder to emboss the dotted background paper by Little Yellow Bicycle, my Nestabilities butterfly die to cut out the gray PP butterfly and the transparency then I ran both through the Swiss Dots embossing folder and Stickled the gray PP butterfly. The Happy Anniversary was stamped using a Stampabilites stamp then cut out using Nestabilities for the sentiment and the background which is also Little Yellow Bicycle and the gems were from my stash.

Here's my card:


The next part of my reveal and gift for my parents is a simple glass coaster. I used the Textile embossing folder again on the background PP and cut a photo of my parents to place in the middle. I used my newer Cuttlebug Spring Florals die for the little butterfly and flowers, used gems and brads from my stash and Prima flowers to decorate the corner as well as ribbon by Little Yellow Bicycle.

My coaster:


And both:


This week's challenge at The Cuttlebug Spot is sponsored byThe Craft Barn - trust me, you WANT to win the gift certificate here because they carry some great stuff (I won this not long ago before I got on the DT and ordered 2 stamps and the shipping time was amazing from the UK to Texas!!!).

Thanks for stopping by and happy scrappin'!!!!

wow soooo cool!!!!!!!!!


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
