This card is made of patterned cardstock and tissue paper, but the center flower is 10 layers of toilet paper. You begin with a rubber stamp and alternate one layer of toilet paper with a watered down all-purpose glue ( about 2-3 parts glue to 1 part water) . Use a stiff bristled brush to tamper each layer into the crevices of the stamp. When all layers are applied, use an absorbant towel and press down on the whole thing to remove excess moisture. Carefully peel the cast off and put in a 200 degree oven on a cookie sheet for a few minutes until it's dry or let it air dry. ( I get too impatient to do this) I colored this one with Perfect Pearls and chalks. Trim the cast to fit your project.

I found the method for using brass stencils and Fiskers embossing plates in the Cuttlebug!! This really expands the usage of your machine!!!

Well, as of now, there is no good way to import my old posts from the Yahoo 360 blog..
If you remember something you want to see, I'll try and find it for you and publish it here, until someone devises a good import tool.

Here is my newest ATC for Flickr's MAMMA's group.
This is a Pepsi can run through the Cuttlebug and colored with alchol ink, and embossing powder. The fabric is a gathered pinwheel and the triangles are of microbeads.
