Cuttlebug Cards

Hey everybody! How's it goin? Sorry I have not blogged in a couple of days. I have been so busy with a little project and haven't found the time. But I did take out a little time for me to do 2 of my weekly challenges from The Cuttlebug Spot and Cuttlebug Challenges blogs.

This first card is for this week's challenge at Cuttlebug Challenges. The challenge this week was to make a criss cross card. They gave us the link to a tutorial. This is the first time I've made one of these. But I have to say, they are fun!!! I used the Snow folder for the pink band around my card and Swiss Dots for the tab. The little insert slides out. I thought I'd put this on top of a gift or something.




Next, the challenge this week at The Cuttlebug Spot was an all white challenge. Another thing I've never done. That is one reason I love these challenge blogs. They always challenge you to do something you wouldn't normally do. Or atleast they do for me. But the challenge this week was to create a card using nothing but white. You could use black ink for your stamped image or sentiment, but that's it. I used the following folders: Swiss Dots, Ornaments, and Distressed Stripes. I also covered my stamped image with Diamond Stickles. The ribbon is sheer with sheer bling, but when I took the photo, it makes it look more purplish. But in person, it is more white. It is hard to get a good pic of a white card, so I'm gonna post 2 different one's so maybe you can tell a little about it.




So there is some scrappy stuff I've been up to. The other project is still in the works, but I will share as soon as I get finished. I hope all of you are having a great week! Take care of yourselves!

Aymee....the cards are great! I've done the criss cross card before, but never an all white card. It's so attractive. Great job! I didn't know about the Cuttlebug spot either. I'll check it out.
