Good Day,

Today I have a new card technique for you to try, Faux Pressed Flowers Challenge from CCEE. This card is so much fun to create, here is what you need. Your cuddlebug and a folder of your choice; you can use your paper flowers from Prima or from a punch or cutting machine. Than place your card stock on your folder with your flowers positioned on a stamped image and send through the cuddlebug. For more direction you can go to CCEE or SCS.

For my card I did not  stamp an image on the card below is the recipe.
Paper: Core'dinations - Chocolate Lovers, Ivory (JoAnn's)
Stamp: Inky Antics-Harvest Mouse (sentiment)

  1. Such sweet cards Deb. Love the pretty flowers and great textures on the first one. Cocoa is just super cute on your second card. The touch of sparkles look great on both cards. Thank you for playing along with us at The Sweet Stop this week.

  2. Two gorgeous cards. The second one really made me smile and the touch of glitter looks fab. Thanks for playing at The Sweet Stop. X
