You're not the EMboss of me

Another busy week in the land of soon to be Mrs Reid. Lots going on and no time to blog it, wah!
Anyway, onto this weeks dare...What a fantastic challenge Lythan set for this weeks Daring Cardmakers Dare! Made even better by the fact I now have 12 of the gorgeous big Cuttlebug embossing folders, totally droolable! I love the fact its instant embossing, none of this spending 3 hours at a lightbox, then inking or chalking it and realising you preferred it before! Here's my cards.

With both these cards I used Cuttlebug Embossing folders, white core card and sandpaper. I love the distressed look it gives when the white core comes through. It looks great on metallic card too.That's all from me today, Ive got a drop in workshop to finish preparing for tomorrow so it's all go!
Taataa for now!

I've ordered a cuttlebug,I've ordered a cuttlebug,I've ordered a cuttlebug

BUT I've only got two die sets to use (the little ones that fit my sidekick) I've absolutely loved seeing all the embossing you've done with yours so I just had to have one, didn't I?

The idea of sanding to show the white is fab, can't wait to have a go. I'm going to be picking your brains for which folders to buy first

Fabulous cards Rhi - you have the same number of embossing folders as me!! I am addicted to them at the moment use them on almost everything!! Did the sanding thing when I bought my first folder, the other thing I like to do is colour the embossed portion with a versamark pen and add chalks with a Q tip if you are interested!

That flower on the first card is fantastic. The colour scheme is really eye catching - and very elegant.

I love the brown flower one Rhi.

How many weeks til the big day??

My Cuttlebug arrived today, but I only got little embossing folders and some Sizzix Texturz (which I can't get to go through properly). Will get some of the big ones in a couple of weeks cos they're beautiful.

Love the cards, Rhi. I must admit that I'm loving the cuttlebug embossing folders - I've got some, but this morning ordered quite a few more.
