JUST BUGGIN CHALLENGE 18 – in the shadows

ahhh winter – the wind is BLOWING HARD here – feels like bout -37 out tee heee!  pezzy & i were out in it running errands and i about FROZE over the weekend!  BUT i got to hit the big Ms to see what they had and scored series 39 from Studio G – no 38 though *crying real tears* i have an extra too – $16 plus tax & shipping if anyone wnts them!

my project today was SO SO much fun!  i hope all of you with cricuts can come join us over at just buggin for our weekly challenges!  be sure and stop over there to see what the other girls have come up with to help inspire you for our challenge too!

**tomorrow** don’t miss my luscious Try It Out Tuesday (TIOT) post for Susana’s Custom Art & Cards (SCACD) with a snippet of a tutorial to kick off our experiments with microbeads as promised AND an exciting announcement!!

The challenge over on the Just Buggin challenge blog is in the shadows – use the shadow or black out feature on your cricut.  an esy one for me as i am constantly preching about the importanc eof the shadow feature – just really makes a difference with your cuts…much like inking edges of layers.   the best part is it satisfies one of the MANY swaps i have signed up for recently – CARD CANDY!!

i cut the two top scrolly hearts and the tag from the Weddings Solution cart – not just for weddings!!!  lots of great sweetheart stuff on there too!  the stamped images, stamped background on the bag topper and stamped border are all from my own exclusive Polkadot Pie Stamp Line –  chocolate treats sets 1 & 2 – out of stock at the moment but more are on the way!  they offer SO MUCH versatility!  Dontcha LOVE the flower soft *cake*!  i used lots of ice stickles and liquid pearls for embellishing, a few pezabling acrylic squares (new colors just arrived – look for those to go up soon!), and some glittered skittles.  all of these items are available in my online store >>CLICK HERE<<

The bow on the topper ws done with my bow easy – ctually does make bows really easy, especially double loop ones like i like.  you can get one at SCACD – i highly recommend it!

While i was at it i figured i would make extras and those are up for sale in my Etsy store if anyone is interested!  just click on the link below!
