I am pretty sure lots of us have a Fiskars Paper Crimper hidden among our treasure of paper accessories. So your challenge is find your paper crimper and have fun creating. You can crimp anything you desire. Oh yes don't forget something on your project should be done on the cuttlebug. Once again no picture but you don't need it since everyone has a creative imagination.
What a 'cool' idea to use the paper crimper - I have not used mine for ages. You say "no picture" so I trust you mean some embossing or die-cut on the Cuttlebug would be okay. I'll see what I can come up with, Margaret.
Sorry I really should have double checked my message. By no picture I meant that I would not be showing any example of what I was talking about. You can do anything you desire as long as it is crimped and cuttlebug the rest is your creative inspiration.
Hi Margaret I will see what I can come up with too :)
I know what I want for my card and the inspiration came a Cricut magazine. I just need long enough so that my leg stops aching and I can just sit down without letting out a dozen load ouch shouts. I think that I pulled something in the back of my leg because it hurts like hell. I can't sit for long and must get up and walk and then I can sit again.
Hello CB Friends:
Well, I enjoyed using my Crimper - must use it more often! Here is my effort for pcpcuttlebug162. Thanks for the fun challenge, Margaret. Hope your leg is feeling better - must have pulled a muscle???
Glad that you enjoyed the challenge. Like you must use the crimper more often. I sure did pull a muscle and it hurts like h... - I was out for awhile today and was doing a lot of walking and standing and now I am paying for it.
Hi Marion I love what you have done with the Crimper you have such a creative imagination. A lovely happy card :)
...Hi Mary....thank you so much. It was fun doing something different.
Put out a challenge and have never used a crimper before. What on earth was I thinking? Well my worries were short lived as I enjoyed doing the card. Creative Cuts & Folds for Paper by Card Maker was my inspiration. The card there was all done using the cricut but since we are a cuttlebug group I borrowed the idea and changed it. I cut the bottom out by hand after I had sketched out the outline with pencil. I used the swirls folder along with distress ink for the top and the bottom and trim on the cupcake were put through the crimper. You can view my card here:
Hi Margaret - well, clever idea! I never thought of a cupcake wrapper - very nice, I like it. I would like to know how you did the swirls with the distress ink......is the ink white or the pinky colour in between. I know one can ink the folder, but somehow I don't think that's how you did this. Fabulous creation, Margaret!
You've never used a crimper before? I hope you didn't have to go out and buy one. Perhaps you had one and never had occasion to use it?
I did exactly what you said. I inked the folder and then put my dye cut image in place and CB it. I used D'VINE SWIRLS embossing folder and Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Victorian Velvet. Ok - so my question is what makes it look like I did anything different?
When I bought my crimper here two years ago I played with it then set it aside. It was one of those gadgets that I bought because it looked interesting and besides it was on sale. It just sat there and got moved around when ever I decided that I would re-organize. It caught my eye the other day and I thought hum this would make a great challenge and at the same time I would finally use it. The beauty of doing a challenge is that you always find new toys in your stash that you haven't used since you bought them. <lol> I was thinking today if I had made the cupcake smaller I could have added a candle on top.
Well, the inking job looks so perfect, I thought you must have done something else.
I'm sure you were pleased to finally make use of your crimper -- I know I was. It was a great challenge - I wonder what you will come up with next.
