Be Inspired #45

It's Wednesday and that means another Be Inspired challenge at Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot. This week's challenge is for you to get in shape! Shaped creativity, that is. Make shaped cards, shaped layouts, shaped whatever! Our sponsor this challenge is Paper Popsicles . For my Shaped sample I used one of Paper Popsicles downloable shaped card files - the turtle.

I printed it twice - once for the card base and another to cut the shell out of. I used a couple Cuttlebug Embossing Folders for the shell detail. The shell itself is debossed Swiss Dots. I then punched circles for the shell detail. The larger ones are embossed Swiss Dots and the smaller circles are embossed Tiny Bubbles. The shell is very 3D!

After you've looked at my little turtle, you just have to go over to the Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot and look at all the amazing 'shape' creations! While you are there, be sure to 'follow' ... we have an amazing couple of months coming up! Hey, be sure to follow me, too!

Materials used:
Downloaded file from Paper Popsicles
Cardstock from DCWV
Cuttlebug Embossing folders - Swiss Dots, Tiny Bubbles
Reinkers, Stampin Up!, for edges of circles and turtle.

This project got a Shout Out by Card of the Week.
