A lil' weekend stampin'

I rarely have a chance to stamp on the weekends, but today my friend Ann came over to stamp and chit chat. It was a always!!! I even managed to get *a* card done....Typically I chat way more than I stamp ;)

I really need to get more of these cuttlebug emossing folders...cuz I am in love! This is just a quick card I did using my Missy B designs stamps. Her stamps can be found here: They are really an awesome quality stamp!

Here is another card I did using missyb stamps and my cuttlebug.

Cuttlebug joy!

On a recent trip to Joanns, I noticed that they had some of these adorable Cuttlebug embossing folders! I love the look of dry embossing, but sometimes dread it because it can be so time consuming...not with these buggers!!! It took less than 30 seconds to dry emboss the background. I have yet to convince myself that I *need* to buy the Cuttlebug machine itself, because I have a sizzix that collects dust. And these embossing folders work great with the sizzix.

Now for a few card details...After embossing the background I sponged it with copper encore ink, this helped to define the design and make it a little more fancy. The colors I used on this card were from this weeks SCS color challenge, the colors are Sage Shadow, Cranberry Crisp, and More mustard.
