Cuttlebug Be Inspired Challenge #16 and Luv Bug Weekend Crop

I interrupt my CHA postings for a special reveal, which is this week's Cuttlebug Challenge blog's Be Inspired Challenge #16. This is such a fun challenge as you get to distress anything you create with your Cuttlebug. I love to distress and I will show you two of my distressed cards. Both my cards are featuring my favorite die from Sizzix, in fact the only one I own, the bird with leaves and flowers....isn't it just pretty?

Supplies used to make this card:
Cuttlebug Folder: Swiss Dots Sizzix Bigz Die: Bird w/Leaves & Flower Cardstock: Memories Patterned Paper: Basic Grey Stamp: Cat's Life Press
Chrystals: Prima
Punch: Martha
Ink: Colorbox
Sewing thread, lace, flower and bling from my stash

And my second card

Supplies used for this card:
Cuttlebug Folder: Floral Fantasy (used on chipboard, too)

Sizzix Bigz Die: Birds w/Leaves and Flowers

Cardstock: Bazzill

Patterned Paper: Prima

Flower and bling: Prima

Alphabet sticker: Adornit

Ink: Colorbox

Special technique: hole punches on the edge of my card are made with a hole punch than I inked it to distress it even more.

Also, if you haven't seen this yet, we are going to have another fabulous weekend crop event called Luv Bug Weekend, so save the date for that. It's this weekend and we hope you participate, as it is going to be packed with lots of awesome projects to make with your Cuttlebug and you can win great prizes, so it will be worth your time on top of making cool things ready for Valentine's Day.

So, go check out what the other designers made on our Cuttlebug Challenge Blog to give you ideas on more distressing, you will be in for a big treat!

Have a fabulous day and I will be back posting more CHA goodness shortly.
