CottageCutz Fancy Girls Clothes

Greetings friends and bloggers.  Today we have a cr2014 eation made with the fabulous CottageCutz dies from the 2014 Baby Release.  This is called the Fancy Baby Girls Clothes.
Aren't those little girls clothes darling!  I can't resist a banner-hence the creation of this clothes line to display
the sweet little outfits.  Each piece was cut with a different designer paper but all ordinate perfectly.
Tiny button accent the clothes and are complimented with the button embellishments.   The tiny little clothes pins hold the die cuts on bakers twine.  The Congratulations die cut is from the Expressions line release.  Doesn't gingham always glam up a baby card!
Thank you for stopping by today to view my project.  Sure do appreciate it.  Until next time, Happy Crafting.  See you soon.  Here are the dies I used:

Christmas window

Hi, Vladka here!
I am back from my vacation and because we are used to go in September, is this like a turning point for me. I say goodbye to summer and my thoughts are already at Christmas cards. I get this special feeling every year when I start to create such cards and these kind of cards are my favorite.  
I took cute little die from Petites releaseWindow and I also took Birthday Party Bear and Harvest Fall Corner dies to get a little candle and some greenery. This is how I get this quiet, warm scene which it is perfect for Christmas. Sentiment and some work with background and the finished look is here. For coloring I used Distress Inks and white tempera.
So, the opening is done and we go further with Christmas cards, but of course there will be some fall cards also, because there is so much color inspirations outside every year. 

I wish you all great Fall!

Garden Girl

Hello CottageCutz Friends!!! Hope you are having a super awesome weekend!!
Today I'm sharing a mini card made using the CottageCutz Petites. I LOVE all the Petites, as they are perfect for any size card, and for mini albums as well.

On my card today I used the Darling CottageCutz Window cut in white, and distress with Antique Linen. Next I colored the curtain with copic in a red shade. Next I cut out the CottageCutz Grass with Cattails using a dark green card stock. I did distress it a bit using a green distress ink. For the CottageCutz Rose, I used distressed inks on it, and dusted it on. My card was super simple to make, as there is just 2 layers, with some RRR Ric Rac running across the center. I then stamped some sentiments on the bottom of the card, and one inside the window. super easy!!

Hope you enjoyed today's post!! Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!!
hugs to all,

Bouquet in Vase

Hi! Vladka here again! 
Flowers are always great way to say thank you to someone. This is why I think that paper bouquet in vase and Thank you note goes together very well. I want to have focal point on the bouquet and so I put it on white background. 
To color all die cut pieces, I put some color on my craft sheet with Distress Inks and added a little water. Then I put die cut pieces into this mixture and waited them to dry. Later I glued everything together and card was finished. Here I used two dies:  Flower Bouquet Jar and Vase with Flowers

I hope you like it! Have a great time!

Tree as symbol of growing and learning

Hi all! Vladka here with you again! 

Today I would like to show you, what I made for my very good friend. She lives in America now and she is a teacher to three years old kids. This is why she needed something to hang on the class door. And I came up with idea to create a tree, because for me it is symbol of growing, learning... So I made this one first. Tree´s ladder is created so, that it looks like inches. There is a lot of animals on the top of the tree and under it: butterflies, little bear and the bigger one, lion, bird, hedgehogs and owl. I added also leafs, grass, mushrooms, nest and birdhouse.

I made also another one with months on it. She will add children´s names on it. So they will  all  know when children have their birthdays. Both trees are cut out with scissors and all pieces are colored with Distress Ink. It is really cute, although it is pretty big.

My list of all used dies is today really long, but I really had fun to play with all this cute dies.
