Orchids and Carousels Oh My!!!

Hello everyone and thanks for stopping by the Cottage Cutz blog today. I'm Erika Taylor and this is my first post as one of the new design team members. I'm so excited about using the Cottage Cutz dies, and I hope that I can inspire you to use them too. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think and if there are any particular types of projects you would like me to create for the blog.

Today I have 2 projects to share with you The first project uses the 4 x 4 Orchid Flower Die. I love the layers that this die has and it works so wonderfully well with patterned papers. I created two of these little orchids for the first card. I also added a little glitter to each of them for that extra "KAPOW" factor hehe


Next is a super sweet card using the amazing Carousel Horse die. I think this is one of the sweetest dies I've ever seen. Again, I used patterned papers from Nikki Sivils and some glitter to really make the pole stand out. Easy Peasy!!!


If you haven't tried the Cottage Cutz dies before, you should really take a boo at all the different dies available. You will be blown away I guarantee. Thank you so so very much for stopping by today. I hope that you have a fantastic rest of your week. Happy cutting!!!
