Sunflowers & Country Crows



Hope everyone is having a wonderful Labor Day Weekend!

Kathy with you and today I have a fall card made using CottageCutz dies and stamps. The dies I used are Pot of Sunflowers, Fancy Floral Butterfly Corner, Tea Time Doily and Fancy Floral Lace Border. The stamps I used are Cottage Impressions' Country Crows.




I started with a side-step card for a base using a tutorial from Split Coast Stampers you can find here and Chance designer paper. I cut the Fancy Floral Lace Border with white and sponged the edges a bit. The "sun" is the Tea Time Doily cut with More Mustard that I trimmed down and inked a little. The Pot of Sunflowers were cut with More Mustard for the pot, Mocha Devine for the dirt and flower centers and white for the leaves and flower petals that I colored with inks. The green butterflies and flower were pieces cut with the Chance designer paper using the Fancy Floral Butterfly Corner that I trimmed and shaped.

The Country Crows were stamped on Solar White with Onyx Black Ink and colored with pencils. I then fussy cut them and popped them on the card, one on the front and the other on one of the "steps". I also made a second sunflower and popped it on the second "step" in the background. This is a fun card shape to give a scenery card a little depth.

Here are the dies and stamps I used.

This is just to sweet for words. I love the down home country feeling of the images and Sunflowers are one of my favorite. So cute and creative.
