Be Inspired #98 Under the Sea

This weeks sponsor is Digital Delights by Louby Lou.

The background is DCWV paper that I ran thru the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder. It is layered on Core'dinations papers.

I added Glass Effects, ( the sand dollar and star fish and the shell) from Heidi Grace to finish this cute card.

Cuttin Up

Welcome to My First Cuttin Up Challenge. This will be a weekly post of my designs using my Provo Craft Expressions and Gypsy. Please let me know if you like my creations.

This is a Note Book that I designed using the Mini Monograms cartridge and papers by Memory Boutique and Core'dinations.

The ribbon and bow are layered on a cut using The Large Edger punch from EK Success.

I used a note pad that you can pick up at any office center. Notice the inside pocket.

To finish my note book off I added a little bling in the corners of the monogram.

Thanks again for visiting.

Be Inspired #97 - Book It

For this weeks Cuttlebug Challenge I used the Bible and Verse stamps from Heartfelt Creations, Core'dinations papers, and Momento Rich Cocoa ink.

Using my Cuttlebug from Provo Craft I embossed the paper using Distressed Stripes folder. The corners and medallion are made from the Vintage dies.

The edges of the Bible are distressed with a gold Krylon Leafing Pen and Pop Dots were used to layer the pages.

Be Inspired #96 Clearly Creative

For this project I used clear acrylic for the base of the candle. For the candle holder I embossed vellum in the Cuttlebug. I used a 5 x 7 Cuttlebug folder that is an exclusive to Oh My Crafts. I'm sorry but I couldn't find the name of it.

I cut the shade using Provo Crafts Cupcake Wrappers cartridge. It is also lined with vellum. I glued small pearls and added the gold edging . Inside is a battery operated candle.

This cute design was made using clear acetate and the same 5 x 7 Cuttlebug folder as above.

The gold butterflies are from Stampendous. They are placed on vellum and then colored in with Bic markers. I like to give them dimension by layering them. The top layer has clear acetate under the sticker and a gem on top.

Thanks again for visiting my blog. Make sure you stop by next week to see my designs.

Be Inspired #95

This is one of my most requested Sympathy Cards.
Marcos Paper was run thru the Cuttlebug using the folder from The Baby Set. I used a gold Krylon Leafing Pen for the highlighting of the paper.

The gold foil butterfly is from Stampendous. I attach one to vellum and color it in with sharpie markers. The top layer is one attached to clear plastic with the wings folded up. The top butterfly body is glued to the bottom using a Pop Dot. The Sympathy sentiment is from Class A'Peel.

Thanks for visiting.
