bluebird "Flying high"

Hello everyone and Happy Sunday to all! Cheryl here today with a sweet CottageCutz Bluebird card. Love this sweet bird and the beautiful branch it comes with. My pieces are all cut from white card stock and then colored to match.I used copics on the bird,branch,and flowers. For the tag and the doily I dusted them with distressed inks.

CottageCutz Used and each Photo is LINKED for easy finding at the store:

Lastly I added some RRR ribbon on the tag, and some lace on the border. I also added some gems, and a little gem butterfly for that added touch.

Thank you for looking and have a wonderful day!!

Cottage Cutz Vintage Bath Tub Gift Box

Happy Saturday.  Welcome friends and bloggers to another Cottage Cutz Creation.  Today it's Carol with a Gift Box.  This was created with a plain old corrugated cardboard box.  You can do anything with a few pieces of scrapbook paper, lace, and embellishments.  Warning:  This post is picture heavy!
The Vintage Bath Tub die from Cottage Cutz was use for the focal point.  It was mounted on a few spellbinders dies.  The corners of the box are the Bella Spring Corner.  The Bella Leafy Branch was used under the flowers.
The box was covered on all sides with paper.  The bottom has a Martha Stewart Deep punched border trim.  When covering your box, don't worry about covering those corrugated edges.  You can paint them with paint or gesso like I did and you just get a Shabby Chic look to your project.
Lace was glued around the top edge of the box along with some crochet trim and a row of bling.  The bow was created with sheer ribbon with pieces of lace inserted between the layers for fullness.
Cut the Vintage Bath Tub die with white cardstock and use your Copic markers to shade the pieces and assemble.  It doesn't show well in the picture but I painted the pieces and the flowers on this box with Twinkle Toes Glimmer Glam.
The flowers were created with two different size Marvey Punches.  Pink bling was inserted between the flowers to compliment the pink in the main focal point.  K & Company Elegance Designer Paper was used to cover the box and create the flowers.
 So by now I bet you are wondering what you would use this box for, right?  Well here is what you could include in the box as a wonderful gift to someone!
A collection of Bath and Body Works products!  How fun is that.  I used the Eyelet Insert Card/Tag to decorate the bottles.  I just turned it upside down so the pretty decoration was at the bottom and punched a hole at the top to tie onto the bottles.  I repeated the decorations of flowers, the Bella Leafy Branch, and some pink bling.

As you can see, this would be a wonderful gift presentation-so don't throw out any of those corrugated boxes that you might think aren't pretty enough to alter.....they are.
 Here's a little peek at the individual Bath and Body Works bottles.
Here are the Cottage Cutz dies used.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope you have a creative day wonderful day!  Take care and see you soon!

Sweet Baby Girl

Hello everyone and Happy Thursday to all!!
Today I am sharing a BABY girl card I designed using the beautiful CottageCutz dies. All pieces were cut using White card stock and then all the baby items were colored with copics.  I just LOVE this darling CottageCutz Baby Girls Clothes die. The CottageCutz Baby border and the doily I left white, so you could see the details in the clothes and teddy bear.

The design paper is baby paper I had, and I thought it would be perfect fit for this sweet baby girl card. I added some sewing, and then some beautiful Really Reasonable Ribbon Pink Satin to complete my card.

All CottageCutz dies are linked by photo below :)

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!

Springtime Strawberries and Victorian Window

Beautiful morning everyone!

It's Simona with you today, showcasing  a card
made with beautiful CottageCutz dies:

I cut the strawberries and the window out of white cardstock
and colored/sponged them with Distress inks:
pumice stone, peeled paint, antique linen, fired brick,
barn door and mustard seeds.

For the picture behind the victorian window I used
Graphic 45 paper - Secret Garden.

White background was dry embossed with a brick
folder and sponged with pumice stone distress ink.
I used white gel pen to hand draw some lines and added
some white half pearls.

Hope you feel inspired.

Thank you for looking and have a 
lovely day!

Thank you very much

Hello everyone and Happy Monday to all!
Today's card was designed using the beautiful CottageCutz Garden Bird Branch, and the Blossom Branch dies from The Scrapping Cottage.
The Garden bird branch was cut 2 different times in a green dp, and a yellow dp. I then cut the birds out and placed them on the branch. As for the flowers those are colored with copics and then glued on.

The tag for the sentiment is cut with CottageCutz Doily Mini, then I punched out a circle to stamp the sentiment on and layer on top of the Mini Doily.

I love these beautiful dies, as you can do sooo much with them. To finish off the card I added a couple of bows with button centers. 

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!
Hugs to all,
