Think Spring Card

The new 12" Flower border from the Feb QK release is so versatile! To create this card, I simply cut off two of the five flowers from the border and placed them on an angle onto the card. You can use the flower outlines as I have done in this project or fill in the petals with contrasting cardstock for a completely different look. I love a die with so many options! The alpha I used is Quickutz Strawberry (which is on sale in the store right now!) and I outlined the letters with a brown pen to add a little extra detail.

This Quickutz Revolution St. Patrick's Day die is also great for those times when you want to wish someone luck. Do you have a special friend or family member that's applying for an important job, position or college? These shapes work great for wishing them "Good Luck!"
The horseshoe was cut out twice, one in yellow and one in brown. Then I chalked around the edges and added a bit of Stickles in each hole. For the shamrock I added a little distress ink around the edges and used some mounting tape to make it pop up just a bit.

Here is another card using the latest dies from the Quickutz Spring Shapes release. This chocolate bunny die was a must for me. He's so cute!
For this card I punched a tiny hole in the top of the ear and used a jump ring to keep the bunny hanging straight on the safety pin.
Be sure to leave your comments and specifiy which shape is your favorite from this release to win the shape of your choice. You have until Saturday night to do leave your comments.

Here is an Easter card made with the Quickutz Club die. If you spend $50 in
Quickutz or CottageCutz products you receive this Cracked Egg die for free.

Lucky Enough Card

This new Shamrock Border is fabulous! One run through the Revolution and BAM you have seven shamrocks ready to go! They work great as one solid border or you can cut it apart to make smaller borders or even use them as individual shamrocks! The shamrocks are slightly different from each other which makes this border die that much more versatile. The possibilities are endless! Keep an eye on the blog for even more projects using this great new border die as well as many others from the new February Quickutz release!

Don't you just love this new Spring Quickutz release? Now if we can only get the spring weather to come too!
I used the new Revolution Shamrock die to make this card as well as the tiny shamrock from the Cookie Cutter spring set. I shaded the edges with my distress ink and a sponge dauber and stamped it with the Hero Arts Happy St. Patrick's Day stamp. Be sure to check back often as we will be posting more cards using the dies from this new release.

Here's a wedding card using the Sizzix Bigz Die, Wedding Cake. The cake is on gold foil board which does not scan well (also the wedding rings). I LOVE this die. :) It is so much fun to "decorate." :)

Got candy? This card should have read "Got M&Ms" in my case. :) Fun card to make using the Sizzix Bigz Die, Owl With Hat found here at Scrapping Cottage.

Here is a quick and easy Christmas card using some Sizzix dies that are on SALE at Scrapping Cottage. ;) The penquin is so much fun to do. He also has an outfit if you are interested in "dressing" him up. :)

The snowflakes and the border are also Quickutz. I took the bead border die and punched holes in it to get this look.
