Welcome to a new year

I hope everyone had a fabulous time - I know I did. It's hard to get back into the swing of things isn't it.....almost as hard as it is to fit back into those jeans after all the eating! This current bout of gastro should help though.....ewwww!

Anyway, here's a card I made for another challenge blog I've discovered. Click here for the details. The challenge is to sand back some Cuttlebug embossing, and for this I pulled out some Coredinations cardstock. I reckon Cuttlebug embossing and Coredinations is a marriage made in heaven!

The stamp is from Odd Bird Planet, the flower is from a stem of silk flowers someone was throwing out, button and ribbon are from my stash, rub ons are Basic Grey, and the laughter tag is from a K & Co noodle box of tags. I used my brand new Nestabilities dies to cut the mounts out.

Here's a close up of the embossing:

I'm always amazed at the detail you can get with those embossing folders.


  1. Very nice!! Love those colors and that stamp? Too cute! :)

  2. Hi Teresa. I stopped by your blog today and saw your lovely card you made for the cuttlebug challenge. I decided to give it a go as well. It was fun!

    Happy New Year.

  3. Great card - the embossing looks so soft and subtle - a lovely gentle effect.
