Cuttlebug Spot ~ Challenge 8 & 9

This week at The Cuttlebug Spot we all made pop up cards with a little embossing for the 9th challenge. I love these. They are so fun to look at when you're done. You can find a tutorial at Splitcoaststampers. I am sure once you try it you'll be hooked. Be sure to stop by The Cuttlebug Spot and leave us a comment with a link to your creation. We'd love to see what you come up with!

Cuttlebug embossing folders used: Borders: Frills
Stamps: Inkadinkadoo with Brown Staz On ink
Paper: Bazzil cardstock and Me And My Big Ideas
Flowers and leaves are Primas with rhinestone brad.

Last week, Challenge 8 was to alter something using anything cuttlebug. I chose to alter a paint can for the holidays. I'm not sure if this is finished yet. I plan to add a cut from the Cricut Christmas Solutions cartridge (Santa with reindeer flying over the town.) I will have to post a final results after I toy with it a bit more. Christmas Ornaments folder was inked with Versamark pad, then heat embossed with Blue Tinsel powder. Winter House was also inked with Versamark pad, then heat embossed with Kaleidoscope powder. The town is colored using prismacolor pencils and blended gently with odorless paint thinner. Snowy bottom was flocked in white, then applied a layer of white pigment ink over top and clear embossing powder. The snowy texture is the result. This was totally an accident but I love how it looks now (thankfully)! Thanks for looking!
