CUTTLEBUGSPOT BLOG HOP



Good morning
This week over at the Cuttlebugspot we are having a blog hop! Nilda asked us to post a card or project on our blogs showcasing a technique such as inking/sanding/double embossing.
I chose sanding as I have yet to try one of the many c'ordinations papers I have acquired and not yet used! The whitewash c'ordinations sanded so nicely.
For my card I used the gorgeous new Owl CB embossing folder. I also used the music CB folder and I found that if after embossing it was better to open the folder and leave the paper in whilst sanding. That way the embossing doesn't flatten whilst sanding it. I added some blue satin ribbon from my stash and coloured some silver peeloffs black wit a permanent felt pen for Happy Birthdays and musical notes. I gave my Owl blue crystal eyes and decided to call him Owl' Blue Eyes(you know like Frank Sinatra was called Ol' Blue Eyes. I think I'm showing my age here lol!) hence the sentiment which is computer generated layered and pop dotted. The card is a landscape card and opens from the side.
Thanks for looking today and in true Blog hop style the blog to visit from here is my very talented DT sister Donna Mundinger and wait til you see her creation this week you are in for a real treat so click HERE to be transported to see her fabulous work! And don't forget to keep hopping to the next blog from there and finally we would love to see your creations too there is another wonderful prize up for grabs this week!
Have a great day!

I haven't seen this owl embossing folder yet. How cute. Especially with the sanding technique and some blue peeking through. And how fun to coordinate it with the music embossing for your title.
