Welcome Baby

Hello and beautiful friday to you all!

Simona here with a new post for the Scrapping Cottage blog.
This time I made an easel card for a newborn baby girl (Jerneja).
I made this card with beautiful CottageCutz dies

I used Distress Inks for coloring my CottageCutz  cut outs. 
Everything was cut out of white cardstock.

I also used few punches from Martha Stewart,
Spellbinders Blossom die and embossing folder dots.
The word 'dobrodošla' means 'welcome'.

I created a matching envelope for the card. The envelope was made
with vellum paper. The CottageCutz Baby border was cut 4x
out of white cardstock on sponged with Distress Ink Barn door.

....and here is the look at the card in the envelope.

Hope you like todays post.

Wish you all a wonderful day and
thank you for stopping by!

Bella Spring Tree

Hello everyone, Cheryl here with the Beautiful NEW Bella Spring Collection. I absolutely LOVE this CottageCutz Bella Spring Tree from the new "Elites" Collection.

I cut my tree out with brown card stock and then cut another out with white. Next I colored all the white flowers with a Pink Copic marker, cut them out and glued them onto the Brown tree. I also added some white pearls to them too.  

I layered the tree on top of the CottageCutz Oval Doily & Frame. For my card layers-My bright pink layer is embossed, and the other is a gingham print. Lastly I added a sentiment from SU! and then some Really Reasonable Ribbon(Brown Satin), and some Dew Drops,to complete my card.

Bella Spring Tag

 It's time for another CottageCutz Creation.  Today is an altered tag made with the beautiful dies from the Bella Spring Dies.  I just love that release so much.  The dies are intricate and detailed and cut beautifully.
For this tag the Bella Leafy Branch was used behind the crochet flowers.  The Bella Spring Corner was used on the top of the tag.  The Butterfly Spring Floral was cut and adhered to a painted piece of corrugated cardboard that was sprinkled with diamond dust while the white paint was still wet.

The Lace Flower Doily was used in the background of the painted cardboard piece.  The tiny lace edges are a Martha Steward punch as well as the little fanned out piece at the bottom of the tag.
Thank you so much for stopping by today to view my creation.  Sure do appreciate it so much.  Happy crafting.  These are the dies used:

Bella Leafy Branch die used as a stamp

Hello ladies, Vladka here! 

Are you thinking, that I prepared CottageCutz post without Scrapping Cottage die? No, I just used it on unusual way. :) I used die as a stamp and here is the result:

Are you curious how I did this? I will show you. This is the material which I used: Scrapping Cottage new die Bella Leafy Branch, Versamark inkpad, white cardstock, white embossing powder and distress inks for coloring. First I inked the die with Versamark and then I "stamped" with die like with a stamp on white cardstock. After that, I embossed the stamped image with white embossing powder and coloured the image with red and green distress inks.

But, of course I also cut out one peace with the same die and added it in the inside of my card. This new dies cuts are so gentle and beautiful. You have to check also the projects of other girls from CottageCutz DT. Have a nice day!

Floral Frame and Springtime Bird

Hello everyone!

Here I am (Simona) with a new project for
The Scrapping Cottage BLOG.

Today's card is showcasing beautiful CottageCutz dies from the 

I decided to make a pocket card with a window frame.
I knew that the Floral Frame (Elites) die will be perfect for this.
The other two frames I cut with my Cricut machine.

First I made the pocket out of white cardstock. Then I glued DP
to the front of the pocket and after that I cut out the window with
the Spellbinders die Label 1. The floral Frame (Elites) was 
cut out twice of white speciality stamping paper and sponged
with Distress Ink Shabby Shutters.

Bella Springtime Bird (Elites) was cut once out of white
speciality stamping paper and sponged with Distress Inks
Dried Marigold, Spun Sugar and Peeled Paint.

I cut out again The floral Frame (Elites) from the white
speciality stamping paper and sponged the flowers with
Distress Inks Dried Marigold and Spun Sugar. 
Then I cut the flowers with scissors and glued them
on top of the other flowers.

I also used Martha Stewart punch.
The sentiment was stamped with Rich Cocoa Memento Ink.

Hope you feel inspired by today's project... :)
...and THANK YOU for stopping by!
