Cuttlebug Challenge : "Butterflies and Hearts - Be Inspired #32"


Was I ever happy and excited to see the Cuttlebug Challenge this week at the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog...because I am loving my Sizzix Beautiful Butterflies die...

I have been enjoying participating in Ruths's All White Swap ...and together with my SCS pal Sue...we have enjoyed ourselves so much that we currently have 11 spots in the swap..

When you are using only white..detail and interest come from layering... texture..embossing...dimension...

Being involved with this swap has been inspiring..and has led me in the direction of exploring the possibilities that exist when you incorporate a mixture of embossed patterns...using die cut shapes..and embossing them as well..layering them..and using dimensionals ....all of which can create depth and interest without the use of color...I think that the greatest tool for creating all white cards is the Cuttlebug...

When I'm not creating all white cards...my Bug gets a daily workout...but since my involvement with this swap..my poor little Bug is working overtime...and so have all of my folders..

For this particular challenge (#32), I went back to a card that I created for Ruth's swap...I played with it a bit..switched things up....more butterflies..less butterflies...small butterflies..a larger butterfly....thoughts of using heart(s)...this embossing pattern and folder/that embossing folder..different border and corner punches...
you name it..i tried it...
but I kept coming back to my original sketch and details...because nothing felt as "right"...

and so this is my Cuttlebug Challenge #32 card....

it was as much fun to make this time around..as it was the first time...
