Be sure to check out the other design team cards and show us what you come up with too! Scrapp&Lapp is our sponsor this week. Enter your design for a chance to win!
Standard A2 sized card, cut at angles on card front for fun, and scallped on back to bring it all together. I am really intested in stepping outside the box so to speak with card design right now. By simply cutting it a bit here, hiding things there... it is so fun to see what you can come up with.
Ink: Versa Color - Topaz, Black waterproof ink

Sketch 17 was created by Janina for this weeks challenge. I love the simplicity of the sketch but more I love how everyone has used it! I am in love with Owls at the moment. This sketch provided the perfect oppertunity to use some in my stash for a happy hello to someone special.
Patterned paper: Sassafras~ Lil' Brudders
Stamps: Sassafras~ Hoo Do You Love?, Inkadinkado~ Gem Stone Birds
Misc: leaf buttons, hemp twine, Lion Brand homespun yarn (ranch) and brads
Sketch 16 for last week was soooooo fun! I love cards with unexpected cuts and dimensions. I have seen some cards created in such a way in the past, where the front flap is only half the width of the full card size. Mada's sketch provided the perfect map to give this a go and the results are just too fun.
Stamps: Autumn Leaves~ Ice Skating, Hero Arts~ Warmest Winter and Snowflake Backgrounds.
Front of card was flocked using Snowflake Background stamp. Versamark ink with Stampendous Stamp and Bond applied, heat with heat tool, then add Cotton Ball White flock over top for a fun fuzzy effect.
Misc: ribbon, buttons and DMC floss.

Last week at The Cuttlebug Spot we made cards for our sweeties... My husband and I have never really made Valentines Day a special one for us, so this card was tough to create. I wanted to keep it sort of masculine with a bit of lovey colors in there too! I adore this quote tag and paper and thankfully the cuttlebug folders were disigned in my favor, LOL. This is what I came up with...
Cuttlebug folders: A2~ Hearts and Floral Fantasy
Metal embellishment is Making Memories
Now to current projects, we've made a card for the little ones in our lives this week. Again... troubled to get the love card made for my little man. I adore the animals embossing set, and I let Liam pick out all the paper. With his little bit of help here is what I put together. I think it is cute but not so sure it is 'the one' for him :). I need a little girl in my house stat! LOL
Let us see what you create at The Cuttlebug Spot. The other DT cards are awesome~ stop by and have a look :)
Cuttlebug folders: A2~ Tiny Bubbles, 4pk~ Animals
