Cuttlebug Challenge #17 - Love!

This week's Cuttlebug Challenge is to use a Love theme...it is almost impossible not to create a card using that theme right now! And how much better is a card when you use your Cuttlebug Embossing folders? Here they are:

This is the first time I ever used a Magnolia Stamp. I know they don't have mouths; I don't know why and it kinda freaks me out a bit so I had to draw a smile on her face. If anybody has any info/comments on Magnolia stamps, please feel free to leave it here for me.

Next is a card I made for my boyfriend to give his 17 year-old son for Valentine's Day...quite a challenge! I used BG Granola pp, Houndstooth Embossing folder and MM Passport trim, Fancy Pants felt, unknown gem and chipboard heart (came in a Treasured Scrapbooking card kit).

Finally, this card uses a cute stamp and sentiment that Jerusha sent me and the Swiss dots (my favorite!) Cuttlebug embossing folder. I think the cardstock is from her as well, and it may be Core'dinations cardstock.

I have more to say but this post has taken me an hour already because I had a dinner break in the middle. I'll be posting again tomorrow. Good night!

Michelle, these are so gorgeous! Love the first card with the Magnolia (like how you've added a mouth to her!). Swiss dots has to be my favourite folder too, tho your houndstooth card also looks really effective!
Thanks for taking part this week at Cuttlebug Challenges!

I think it is great that you drew a smile on her face and if I had any confidence in myself I might actually try the same thing! I really love how your card turned out, AWESOME!!!

I love that cuttlebug folder swiss dots. And I also thought the smile was part of the stamp. LOL It's so perfect.
