SPOOKY SPIDER & How to Make Cuttlebug Embellishments + Videos

Well, SuperJoy has some SUPER things coming up and needed some time to do them….soooo… Here’s a card I made last year.  I used a lot of cool things to make this card.  I have more information about it RIGHT HERE!!

In a totally separate post I showed you how to use Cuttlebug folders to create embellishments!  Say What?  Yep. Click RIGHT HERE to find out how I did that.

I heart embossing folders.  Do you?  They are so much fun.  I love finding new things to do with them.  Have you seen my video on using ink with them?  That’s a technique I LOVE!!!  I love it with extra little hearts floating around. 😉  (Good grief…extra little hearts?  Really?  What am I in junior high over here?  LOL!)


Since I’m talking about embossing, let me go ahead and mention this other video I did.  People are always asking me what my favorite embosser is…hmmm…that’s tough.  However, I did make this video comparing the Big Shot and the Cuttlebug.


Lastly, in this video I demonstrate the Sizzix Texture Boutique embosser.  It’s so cute!  It’s shaped like a purse.  LOVE!  You’ll see the demo closer to the end of the video.  The title of the video is actually “Cricut Life is a Beach 5 o’clock Somewhere…”.

  19. I love embossing and I love my cuttlebug folders, but I’m also very anal, so how do you get the ink off of your embossing folders?

    1. Littlen,
      I use water soluble inks, so I can just rinse them off. 😉 The kind I use is by Stampin’ Up. I show them in the folder inking video…I think. 😉

  20. so cute!

  21. I love when you give links to older projects since I don’t always have the time to go way back on a blog! Thanks for sharing this cute project with us!

    Love the idea with the CB folder. I’m definitely going to try this out! It’s always interesting not only to learn techniques but to see how they’re applied. Love your card!

  43. I also love embossing folders. I don’t have either machine you used, I have the old red style sizzix. Still works for most all things except for the wider dies.
