Cuttlebug & Ink...... sounds like a new double act!!! Just me playing around again with my little green machine! I wanted to try some more cards using my Cuttlebug, just to see what i can come up with, and also at the classes i host a couple of my ladies have recently decided to purchase one as well, so i want to give them some more ideas for their cardmaking :)

For this card i embossed one piece without any ink and the two end panels were first inked and then embossed. I used Adirondack ink in 'Denim' smoothed all over the inside of the printed panel(i must get myself a little brayer, because this gives a much better effect apparently!) and then run through as normal. The image panel was cut using my Nestabilities which i've edged with a little ink from a cat's eye. The stamps used are Hero Arts 'Dandelion' and the letters from 'Good Alphabet' ribbon is from stash!
I hope the girls will have a try with this technique at my class tonight! That's the good thing about the Cuttlebug being very portable, it means i can take him along as well!!
Thank you for popping in today, must go now or i'll be late for work!!!!
