Yesterday’s Technique Challenge was perfect for my sample for today’s Be Inspired challenge. The technique challenge was fun. Ink up the indented side of a cuttlebug folder, add cardstock and run through your Cuttlebug. That will add ink and dry emboss your cardstock at the same time.
I knew I had to use black, lots of green as well as circles for this challenge.
I inked up the circle cuttlebug folder with Black Craft ink and ran a 4″ square of Old Olive cardstock through the CB.
Next I cut it down with a wavy line. I added a Shimmery White strip behind it and cut it with my corner rounder to add the scallops.
I added textured Soft Sky cardstock to turn the layers back to a 4″ square and paper pierced the Soft Sky edge as well as the wavy edge of the Old Olive piece. What can I say? I am paper piercing addicted! And if you like paper piercing too or you want to try it out as a challenge, head on over to Sharon Johnson’s blog. That’s her challenge for this week.
For the sentiment I chose “You are one of a Kind” from One of a Kind. I stamped it in Black StazOn on Shimmery White cardstock, punched it out with the small oval punch. It was layered first on a 1″ black circle punchout, then ona a sponged Ruby Red Designer Label punch. I paper pierced the 1″ circle and added a white dotted border on the Designer Label with the white gel pen.
I tied striped Pumpkin Pie grosgrain ribbon around the Old Olive section and attached the card front to the 4 1/4″ square Basic Black card base.
