COOLIN' Down on a TOADALLY Awesome Day!

I apologize for the late post today, I've had multiple computer issues this morning but we're up and going again...finally!
I've had the opportunity to play with some of the darling CottageCutz dies w/Peachy Keen faces.
For my first card I used the new Penguin doll and used the scarf from the Doll Accessories #2 die.
I sat down at my computer and typed up some fun sentiments to use with my new dies and thought You're so COOL! would be a great way to thank someone and be able to use the penguin die all year round. I also used the Rick Rack Edger which is a must have in my book!

For my next card I used Barry's tip and made a faux embossed background by cutting out multiple frogs and inking the edges slightly and adhering them to the same colored cardstock for an embossed look. This Happy Lil Frog die is so cool because the spots are actually debossed like little dimples which make it so easy to color in.
For my last idea I used the mini Soft Serve Cone to make a simple little coupon for a free ice cream which would make a great addition to tuck inside a card or give to a child or student who did something extra special.

Whatever the occasion you'll find something that fits with the wonderful assortment of CottageCutz dies here at the Scrapping Cottage!

I love seeing all the fun you're having with the die/stamp sets. Joanne and Kathy have struck upon a brilliant and very addictive idea here. Your cards are just adorable, and the faux embossing is a very nice touch. Great tip! I think I'll have to CASE that one!
