Whatchadoin' Wednesday

Over at Storage Units, Ink & More, we the design team along with Denise will be starting a weekly challenge called "Whatchadoin' Wednesday" and we want YOU the readers to play along.

Here is what Denise says about today's challenge:

This weeks challenge...EMBOSSING FOLDERS...
You know you have them laying around...lets use them...Cuttlebug, Sizzix, Nestibilities...the list goes on and on...
Pick a folder, and use it somewhere on your card/project. We would love to see what you can do...Come join us...because, WHATCHADOIN' this WEDNESDAY?

Just click on the logo above or the green words in my post and it will take you right to today's challenge. If you participate, I would love for you to leave a link here for me too. If you don't have any embossing folders you can still play. Read Storage Units, Ink & More blog for more information.

Here is my card for this first challenge: I love the Core'dinations cardstock, but embossing it with Cuttlebug embossing folder templates and sanding the raised design makes for even more fun with this paper. For the top turquoise panel, I just sanded the already raised texture in the cardstock. For the bottom, I used Cuttlebug's swirls embossing folder and sanded the raised design. I like how the swirls imitates the swirls in the snail.

Is this snail cute or what??!! This snail is from the newly released stamp set "At a Snail's Pace". Just click on the name to see all the other adorable images in this set. I love how you can just ink up part of a sentiment and see exactly where you are stamping. I did that with "slow down" and then on the inside it says "and smell the flowers". This is a good reminder to all of us as we get so busy with life, that we miss the small blessings. So, slow down today and take some time to stamp a card for a friend "just because" and play along with us in this challenge.

    I just popped over from the inspireME site to check out your blog and to say hello. Looks like you've got a lot of fun stuff going on. Love this cute snail card. I started as a stamper, although I don't stamp as much as I used to. Love the idea of your Whatchadoing Wednesdays.
