Be "Scene"...at the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog ~ Be Inspired:Challenge #44




What a fun Challenge this week at the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog!

I really enjoyed creating this card...and as always...enjoyed using various embossing folders for added texture and interest.
If you know me at all..or visit my blog often....you already now that I am a HUGE Cuttlebug fan..I just LOVE embossing..and find myself wanting to emboss a little something on almost every card that I create...my Cuttlebug and embossing folders truly get a workout here at my house!

As if I am not addicted enough to embossing... I now have an added addiction....to enhance the original addiction...and this would be... Core'dinations card stock addiction...

The background card stock used on this card is from Core'dinations wonderful Whitewashed Collection...and even prior to sanding...it has a beautiful weathered look...but once its sanded...the color core emerges and the magic happens!
(You KNOW that I was on line the other day ordering...or shall I say....STOCKING UP (in a MAJOR WAY) on a stash on Core'dinations cs... I found mine at HSN and QVC (yes yes..I know..I am an enabler)

The truck(SU Loads of Love) was stamped out on DSP...and the black lines darkened with a black Stamp n Write marker, The trucks chrome was colored with a fine point silver paint pen (Prismacolor).

I hand cut the trees..(also from Core'dinations cs)..embossed and sanded them as well...

Once I had all of the card elements prepped and created..I used OODLES and OODLES of dimensionals to put this 3-D scene card together..

I hope that you'll visit the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog HERE to see what my design Team sisters have created...the creativity will awe you!..you'll also get to see many DT challenge projects that have used the wonderful Sakura Sticklers (Stickers) and Souffle Pens!

..and while you're there...steal a little bit of inspiration...and give this weeks challenge a try...and BE SCENE!
