Signs of Spring

Today, I am going to be showcasing the fabulous new Cottage Cutz Daffodils Die.
The Daffodils die was the first one on my list from the Cottage Cutz Spring Release. Fortunately, the family from whom we bought our current house loved blooming plants. In our backyard, there is a ring of daffodils planted around an old bird bath. My girls love these daffodils! I try to make a point to take pictures of the girls with the flowers each year. Luckily, we have a fantastic "crop" each year because there is nothing my girls love more than picking flowers!

To create my diecut, I ran the Daffodils die through my die cutter with white cardstock and then used my Copic markers to color each of the different pieces. I used "Buttercup Yellow" to color the daffodils petals and then I matched the green leaves to the greens of the striped fabric paper. These flowers piece together so quickly and easily. I can't wait to use it again to create even more unique daffodils.

I hope you have a fun and scrappy weekend!!

ETA - We finally had a little sun today, so I was able to get a better picture!
