Hey lovelies!!!  It's Carol here today to share with you a creation with CottageCutz dies that features the Sweet Love Release Collection.  This is so sparkly in real life.   The Filigree Cupid is absolutely adorable from this collection.  It's framed with the Sweet Love Frame and I used the Sweet Floral Heart, Elegant Love Heart and the Sweet Heart.   When I was cleaning off my craft table I found the Fancy Lace Border that I had cut and hadn't used for a project so I used it on this card.
All the other layered hearts are from a mixed package of pretty glittered hearts I got at the "Dollar Store".  They have some cute embellishments this year.  The hearts from this collection are so pretty with the different sizes and designs.  They make for fun accents to a Valentine's Day card.
Thank you for stopping by today.  We really appreciate it!   Happy Crafting.  Here are the dies I used:

Mr. Snuggles with big Flower

Hi, Vladka here!

Finally we have snow and winter here. The whole December and first part of January we had spring actually – the birds were singing, plants started to grow... It was really strange. But now it is all as it should be. 

And because of the white outside, also my card is white. Only die cuts are colored. This  Mr. Snuggles is so cute and I purposely gave him this big Flower with stem. He really tried hard to bring the flower and this is what I wanted to achieve with this motive. I think it is really cute. And what do you think?

Enjoy your day!

Sweet Lil' Teacup Trio

Hello everyone, Cheryl here today to share a card I made using the Darling CottageCutz "Teacup Trio" and "Sweet Love Doily"

I absolutely LOVE these dies from this collection, they are absolutely so darling. The little CottageCutz Teacup Trio is perfect for making a Border too! In my second photo you can see, I made a border out of the Teacups, and I LOVE how they look all lined up next to each other.

For the Sweet Love Doily, I wanted to layer it, so I did, I used circles to layer on top, and then added the CottageCutz Teacup Trio. All the Teacups are cut in pink, then distressed with pink ink, and the accents are colored with copics.

These are the CottageCutz Dies I used:

I Kept this card pretty simple, by just doing the 2 layers of design paper, then adding my image to the center. Next I added the border, then my BIG Gingham Bow....hehehehee The ribbon I used is from Really Reasonable Ribbon. For the rose in the center, that was given to me by my mom.

Thank you for looking and have a super wonderful week!!
Hugs to all,

My Heart is with You card

Hello Everyone from Olena  

Today, I am sharing a Valentines Love card. I created with Beautiful Valentines CottageCutz Collections.  For this card I used NEW " Sweetheart Lovebirds (4x4)" die.

I die cut the image with cream, green and pink card stock. Sponge the edges and assemble.

Then, I stamped sentiment, cut out with paper punch and glued on background. For base card I used light green card stock. Decorated card with rhinestones.
Have a Wonderful Day! Olena

Sweet Love Birdcage & Frame

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Today I have another CottageCutz project for you!  This time I have a card using 2 new dies from the Sweet Love Release, Sweet Love Birdcage and Sweet Love Frame.

Wouldn't this be perfect for a Valentine's Day Card?  I love the pink and brown color combo together with cream.

I die cut the birdcage with Natural White and Early Espresso card stock, trimmed the Natural White bird and "love" pieces from the main die cut, and inked them with Victorian Velvet Ink.  I then glued them over the Early Espresso die cut so they would stand out.

The frame was cut with Natural White and Concerto card stock.  I used the Natural White inside piece for the inside of the frame, inking it with Victorian Velvet.  I popped the birdcage on the frame and them popped the frame on a piece of Early Espresso card stock.

The card base is made with Early Espresso card stock.  The Natural White mat is stamped with a "love you" sentiment (Short & Sweet - Stampin Up) in Dark Chocolate Ink then wrapped with Ivory Pleated Satin Ribbon (Really Reasonable Ribbon) with trim (Jo-Ann's) glued down the center of it. I popped both mats on the base with pop dots, then added a pretty bow with a pearl brad over the center to finish the card.

For my card, I used the Sweet Love Birdcage and the Sweet Love Frame CottageCutz Dies.

Hedgehog Gift Card Holder

Happy Tuesday everyone!

I have a quick post today with an adorable Hedgehog Gift Card Holder!  Wouldn't this be perfect for a boy's birthday gift?

I used the Large Confectionery Bag to make the pocket using Sports Mat Pad (K & Co) that is double sided with the orange on the inside.  The tag is the Fancy Insert Tag die cut with blue card stock.  I decorated it with the adorable Hedgehog Mini and Round Mini Balloons using scraps of black, browns, yellow, and orange card stock.  The sentiment is Teeny Tiny Wishes from Stampin' Up.  I inked the edges of the tag and all the die cut pieces with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and used Natural Jute from Really Reasonable Ribbon for tie on the tag.

 Here's a photo of it inside the holder.

These are the CottageCutz Dies I used:
