Cuttlebug Be Inspired 76: Easter Dresses

Hello again girls. This week's theme for the Cuttlebug Challenge is all about Easter. I remember being a little girl and the easter dresses my mom would sew for me. Dresses that were pretty, pastel, and definitely designed for warm weather. Easter Sunday ends up being chilly here half the time! But that never deterred me from wearing that new dress.

I can just imagine this little girl in her new Easter dress, waiting for the egg hunt to begin. I mentioned in the post below that I wanted to use this week's DareDevil sketch in a new way --- and this is it. Completely different take on the layers and all and I love it! Be sure to scroll down to see that post as well, okay!?! And since I added a butterfly at the last moment, I can use this for Flutter By Wednesday as well!

My card uses some cardstock from the Coredinations White Wash line. Such a fun paper - I love how soft and muted the color is with the white wash finish over it. We have a new official glue sponsor for the Cuttlebug Challenge - Beacon Adhesives. One of their products is Zip Dry and I used that on my card today. One thing I've had issues with in the past is getting layers to adhere to my card when I emboss the base (or layer below it) like I did on today's card. My Tombow tape runner just doesn't seem to get a strong bond. But the Zip Dry did the trick today. It's a great glue for paper crafting as it dries without wrinkling - one of the biggest issues with using liquid glues with paper. I remember using it a few years ago in a Karen Russell class but then forgor about it until now.

Head over to the Cuttlebug Challenge blog to see the rest of the designers creations. Be sure to upload a link to your creation so we can see how you intepret the theme!

I love this card Cassie! The image is beautiful and so soft. I use Coredinations cardstock a lot as well and the tape runner I get a Walmart works really well on embossed and sanded paper.

I was using the Zip Dry glue and couldn't keep the top from plugging all up. It was so frustrating that I finally just threw it away. I do like how you can use it on paper without it wrinkling though!

Blessings,
Christine

This is so pretty, Cassie. It has such a softness to it. Thanks for sharing your memory with us. I do remember Easter's being alot warmer when I was little too. Now I find they're chilly for those frilly dresses. We've gone from frilly dresses to new spring coats and sun hats!
