Cuttlebug Be Inspired 19

Good morning folks! Welcome to this week's Cuttlebug Be Inpired challenge brought to by the fabulous design team on the Cuttlebug Challenges Blog. It's a fun one and I'm sure your gonna love it and want to give it a try.

We are embossing acetate this week. I love this technique and have loved it since the very first moment I put acetate in my embossing folder and ran it through my cuttlebug last year. I even had a few cards published in last years Spring edition of Take Ten featuring this technique. Hmmmm............... maybe that's why I love it so much!

Dear hubby gifted me with the Mindy's Zoo stamp set for Valentines Day, so I thought it was only appropriate that I use it on my card.

He also gifted me with the Welcome Baby Embossing Folder and Die Cut. I just love those cute little hearts

. Here is a closeup so you can get a better look.
I even embossed the giraffe after coloring him with my Copic markers. Isn't he cute? The papers are from Nana's Nursery It's A Boy. The back oval is recessed using dimentionals to make it look like a window. All the ovals were cut using my Coluzzle. The sentiment was made with the Welcome Baby die cut.

Stamps: Mindy's Zoo. Papers: Nana's Nursery It's A Boy, Tempting Turquoise, Acetate. Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black. Extras: Cuttlebug, Welcome Baby Folder and Die Cut, Oval Coluzzle, Buttons, Ribbon, Threading Water Punch, Ice stickles,Copics, Dimentionals.

Be sure to stop by the Cuttlebug Challenges Blog for more detailed directions and while you're there sure to check out all the fabulousness the team has created this week.

It would be awesome and we would love it if you did the challenge with us. Make sure to post a link to your card on the Cuttlebug Challenges Blog if you do , so we can see your wonderful work. Hope you get the chance!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by to see me. Hugs to you! TTFN
