The Cuttlebug Spot Challenge and Just Scrappin' Monthly Challenge

TGIF! I can't believe it is Friday! Where has this week gone???? It flew by for me. I hope the weekend will go by slower. I wanted to post what I've been up to today. First, I did my card for this weeks challenge at The Cuttlebug Spot Blog. This weeks challenge was to use a EB folder and a border punch. I got the idea for this card from one of the best little scrappers I know, my mom. ( I love you mom and thanks for letting me scraplift!!!) She had done a tag like this and I had to give it a try too. I cut the candle out with the Cricut Christmas Solutions cart. I then used Versamark ink to ink up the entire portion of the red candle. I then used clear eb powder and heat eb'd this. It makes the candle look and feel like real wax! It's amazing! Yall gotta try it! I mean it is the same!! I also used some gold stickles on my flame. For my border punch, I chose the MS Drippy Goo border punch. It reminded me of the hot wax dripping off of the candle. Then I chose to use the D'Vine Swirl Cuttlebug EB folder. The swirls reminded me and mom of the smoke that comes off the flame as the candle is burning. I also used some red sparkly riboon. Easy as pie and fun! Here it is:

The inside of the card. I used the border punch again to mimic dripping wax and cut the "Season's Greetings" with the same cart.

Now, our monthly challenge at Just Scrappin' was to make a sign. All of us girls are making signs for our scrappy areas. I made mine on cardboard. I cut the lettering out with the Cricut Storybook cart. Then the flourishes are from the Home Accents cart. Of course, what is a southernbelle's sign without a real southernbelle? So I used my favorite stamp of a southern belle. I heat eb'd it with gold eb powder. I then used my pink watercolor pencil to highlight some areas and then used the water brush on it. I also added these really cool velvety flowers. Last, I made a hanger with pearl ribbon. This one was so fun and it's already hangin' up in my area....my sanctuary away from it all! Thanks for stopping by! I hope all of you have a fantastic weekend! Roll Tide!!!!

Pin It!

You did a wonderful job everything goes well together.. the drippy goo for the candle.. great touch... I like how you thought out of the box and showed us that a non traditional Christmas folder can certainly be used for Christmas.. thanks for playing along.

Your card is much prettier than mine. I love the way you used ink on the embossing. Also, I love that drippy goo punch. You have used that punch in so many ways. I would love to have one too.
