Be Inspired #76 SPRING

This week on Cuttlebug Challenge the theme is SPRING!  I'm so ready for spring.  My flowers are starting to bloom and that's what inspired me.  I made the card out of coredinations and ran it though the Cuttlebug using the Swirl folder.  I then sanded the swirls with a file to make them stand out.  I made my wheelbarrel out of shiny purple paper and added stickers to give it difinition.  My flowers are made out of stickers, glitter, flower soft and fabric.  Lots of different textures.  I made the wheelbarrel wheel with the new technique I learned called "Spirelli".  I finished it off with a sweet little ribbon and bow over layered matching paper.  Come on Spring.  I need to thaw out!!!!

Cuttlebug Challenge #74 Envelopes to go.

This weeks challenge over on Cuttlebug Challenge is to make a matching envelope.  I started with the Swirls folder and embossed my envelope and my card.  The little dress is made by cutting a scalloped circle to look like a dress then wrapping thread around the scallops this technique is called Spirelli.  I wrapped a ribbon around the wait to give it a little more diffinition.    I made the purse with a 2 slot punch out and folded it around thread.   The hat is stickers on a blue background layers and then a rhinestone on top and topped it off with a bow.  I cut the hanger out of blue paper and the straps are the punch out for the die cut.  The envelope I embossed the flap with the swirl folder and put a little hat on the front to match.
