Cuttlebug Be Inspired #16

Good Morning Everyone:
Welcome to Cuttlebug Be Inspired Wednesday # 16 !
Our motto is to bring you the best examples of different ways to incorporate Embossing and Die Cutting into your ART!

Great Inspirations are our obsession!

This week Inspiration is brought to you by the Fantastic Folks at BASIC GREY we are giving a prize pack next Thursday!

Our Cuttlebug Inspiration this week is to add distress as part of textures.

there are so many ways to distress to add oomph to your creations.

  1. You can add a sliver of water to the edge of the paper and gently fold it back and let it air dry.
  2. You can Use Basic Precision files to Distress kit the edges.
  3. Tim Holtz Sanding grits or at your Home center you can get sanding papers grit medium #100

We invite you to try this technique!

Don't forget to let the Fabulous Design team know what you think of their Samples..

Don't forget our Luv Bug Weekend starts this Friday with a fabulous Blog Hop from the Design Team..

I love all the cards. I hope the challenge doesn't have to be a card. I did a metal embossed frame that I embossed with the Cuttlebug, colored the metal and then distressed with sandpaper.

This was great. I tried to follow your inspirations. I also tried to be a little versatile with something we wouldn't normally use for "everyday" stuff... so I used the spiderweb embossing folder. Hope you all like it! Mwa ha ha!
