A Scraphappy Southernbelle

Hey y'all! Happy Tuesday! How is your day going so far? Great, I hope! I wanted to hop online right quick and share a card I made yesterday with you guys. This card is for the current challenge at 'My Craft Spot.' This weeks challenge was to do some type of embossing on your project, which worked out great for me because my Cuttlebug has been very neglected here lately. Also, it gave me the perfect opportunity to work with a new set of SVG files I purchased from My Grafico. Here is what I came up with:

"Boo" Card

Supplies Used
Cardstock: The Paper Studio, Bazzill Basics Paper
Patterned Paper: Jillibean Soup, Imaginisce
Rhinestones/Pearls: Queen & Co
Alphabet Stickers: Momenta
Stamps: Peachy Keen, Studio G
Ink: Stampin' Up!
Electronic Cutter: Cricut Expression (Provo Craft)
Electronic Cutter Software: Sure Cuts A Lot (Craft Edge)
SVG's: Blackleaf Design (My Grafico), My Scrap Chick
Embossing Machine: Cuttlebug (Provo Craft)
Embossing Folders: Swiss Dots, D'Vine Swirl (Provo Craft)
Embossing Plate: Weave Texture (Stampin' Up!)
Adhesive: Helmar, ZIG glue pen

For this card, I started out by cutting my scalloped rectangle card base. I cut this using my Cricut and the '30 Boxes & More' set from My Scrap Chick. I then started to work on the cute little witch. I purchased her at My Grafico and it was designed by Blackleaf Design. You can check out that set of SVG files HERE if you are interested. It is such an adorable set and very reasonably priced. Now, I won't lie, this was one of the more tricky SVG's I've ever put together and I've been putting them together for years now. It cut pretty good, but there are some tiny pieces. So the tweezers and Zig glue pen were my BFF when putting her together. But once together, I was so pleased with how she came out. She is just so cute! Also, since the challenge did require embossing, I embossed her dress (Swiss Dots), her hair (D'Vine Swirl), and the black dotted background (Sizzix Embossing Plate, Weave Texture) using my Cuttlebug Embossing Machine. I then added some bling and alpha stickers.
 Love these alpha's from Momenta. They have a subtle glittery effect to them. And noticed her shoes...see the little stripes on her socks? Those were the trickier parts to cut and place. But aren't they cute? I love striped socks!
 I used Zap Dots to pop up the frame around the witch to add some dimension.
 I used a stamp on the inside.
That's all for me today! I need to go and clean my house a tad. Then maybe scrap! So much to do!
Thanks for dropping in for a 'spell'!!! LOL! Excuse my corny attempt at humor!
Happy Scrappin'!!!

Pin It!
