Xyron + Miss Kate Cuttables

Welcome to Day #3 of the 
XYRON and MISS KATE CUTTABLES BLOG CO-HOP
**You should be arriving here from the Xyron Blog**
Be sure to leave a comment for a chance to win a Xyron 3" Sticker Maker :)

I loved the variety of Cuttables so much, that I have two projects to share today!
First up is just the sweetest mushroom that I've ever seen:
I love all-things woodland, so I chose to emboss the background paper with
a woodgrain folder before attaching it to the cardfront.  
Next, I set about to cut-out the pieces from the mushroom set; for this I 
used different cardstocks by American Crafts.  

I used the Xyron 3" Sticker Maker to assemble all of the pieces together.
For a little extra dimension and texture, I added some Doodlebug Design 
Sprinkles for the cheeks.  The sweet patterned papers, twine and
alpha stickers are also by Doodlebug.

The second card features one of the cutting files that I requested to work with :)
I'm so ready for Spring and Easter that I couldn't resist a bunny!
It maybe a little hard to tell in the photo, but I actually glittered over the adhesive
in the opening of the egg.  To do so: instead of running the top of the egg through the
Xyron 3" Sticker Maker, I did so to the bottom of the egg, which left a portion of the
adhesive exposed. 

When working with the bunny's head, I ran the top layer through the Xyron Sticker Maker.

 As the instructions state:  Rub and Peel!  

 Whenever I machine stitch close to the edge of a paper, I like to use a High Tack Tape
around the sides before adhering to the cardfront.
It gets into the grooves between the stitching and holds everything perfectly in place!

That's all from me today!
