Die Cut Fun!

Good morning!  Yes, the title says it all, and that's exactly what I've been having... die cut fun!  I've been playing away with my Cottage Cutz dies, and I have a couple of projects to share with you today as a result.  My first project is a little 6x6 layout I made with the Picnic Ant and Mini Ant dies.  They were cut with white card stock and colored with Copic markers.  I kept the rest of the page pretty simple by only adding the pennant banner for a title, which I cut by hand.  A fast and fun page, ready for a cute picnic picture.
 My second project is a card.  I've so enjoyed all the adorable and "punny" cards the girls have shared lately, so I thought I'd try one of my own.  I used the Sea Otter die from Cottage Cutz, and again colored him with Copics.  The sentiment is computer generated, and when I think of ocean, I think of pearls, so pearls it was for the bling on this card, along with the sparkle of diamond dust for that icy water.   The sparkles don't show up so well in the photo, but believe me, they're there.
I'm so happy you could stop by The Scrapping Cottage Blog today.  I wish you a wonderful day, a beautiful weekend, and of course, happy crafting!
