Fab Friday - No Video but New Goodies!

It is my delight to show four of the brand new folders being introduced
by Provo Craft this week! They were on my doorstep when I came home from
teaching school yesterday, and I could hardly wait to make something to show you with them!

This is the new Flourishes Folder! I embossed the front of a white A2 card, then coated the raised images with Crystal Stickles. When dry, I stamped Merry Christmas with Red Velvet CTMH ink, and embossed it with clear embossing powder. Easy!

House Mouse Holiday!!

The new Tartan 5x7 folder is great!
This red section is cut smaller and accented with Ice Stickles. The mouse and tree were colored with Copics and touched with Shimmerz. So fun!

Paper Piecing with Cuttlebug!
This is the Cardinal folder, and I did the blue section first, then embossed scraps of brown, green and red for the different sections of the image. It was very easy to cut them out along the embossed edges. I used Zip Dry glue to adhere them. I used Sakura Souffle' white for the snow flakes, and that really makes the POP! Then a touch of Crystal Stickles really makes them sparkle. The snow us Martha Stewart Glitter Snow. Sorry I goofed on coloring the Cardinal...the part in back of the beak should have been black, and the top knot should have stayed red...(don't color at 3:00 in the morning!!) Glue on a black mat, add red brads to the corner, and trim the image to fit! Great project!!

Silent Night!!
If you've been following my videos and blog, you know I love shiny paper, and have a technique for adhering inexpensive wrapping paper to cardstock, and making it really upscale! This is really IT!!! I used the new 5x7 Snowflake Folder, then sprayed it with Glimmer Mist, and dabbed the top layer off with a tissue, leaving it in the crevices. So pretty! Then with the Border Folder I did a 7" edge design, and inked the edge with Copic BG000. The snowflake is a Cuttlebug Die Cut, attached with a pop-dot, and the bow is the finishing touch.

I hope you have enjoyed these, and would love to win one! I will be giving away the SNOWFLAKE FOLDER on MONDAY, and here's how you can win it! Be sure to leave me a comment, then click here to take you to Cuttlebug Challenge, and follow the three simple steps's that easy!!! Good luck.

Beautiful cards - I can't believe you were able to achieve that with the cuttlebug folder. I never even thought about taking them a step or two further!
