Modelling with a Hot Air Balloon

Hi Everyone, How are you all going with the Scrappy-Go-Lucky Blog Hop? Have you managed to check out each of the designs? Tomorrow is the last day so make sure you head back over to Scrappy-Go-Lucky to check out the last 2 made by Lisa and Tara. If you have worked out the theme, leave your answer at THIS POST to be in with a chance to win one of the four new cartridges:-

Rock Princess
Winter Frolic
Country Life
Happy Hauntings
 
A few weeks ago, I promised to show you some cards made with the Cricut Cuttables Embossing Kit.
 
 
I used the hot air balloon image from "Summer in Paris".
 
 
First I tried some plain cardstock through the cuttlebug. While the image did work - I found the embossing wasn't as sharp as when used with Cuttlebug or Sizzix folders.




I then tried it with some metallic cardstock. This did work better.


They still made up into great backgrounds on the cards below.




I would use these again, especially for use in something you wish to personalise such as for invitations or wedding stationery. And, as mentioned in the earlier post, I would definitely choose something a little less intricate next time.

I have also used it with a different technique, and will show you this in my next post.

Good luck with the blog hop.

Luv, Tereesa.
