CottageCutz Inspiration Day!

Hello everyone and Welcome To CottageCutz Inspiration Day!

While everyday is an Inspirational Day here at the CottageCutz blog with all our talented CottageCutz Designers, we have decided to do a couple of Inspiration Days a month. This will consist of 2 or more designers creations for you to view.

Today we have 

1st is Vladka's Beautiful Cards using CottageCutz Vintage Lamps & Hand Mirror w/Cameo
Inspirational day, such fun and I’m really glad that I can do this together with Simona and Cheryl. I decided to use some dies from Vintage release, which is so special and so darling. It brings you to Jane Austen time and everybody who knows me, knows how much I love and admire her work, indeed! So, this was my inspiration for my two cards. They say, that eyes are the mirror of our soul and this is the reason I put heart in my mirror. I think this is the great way to show your best friend how you admire her kindness and tenderness of her heart. Mirror is cut from this great Hand Mirror and Cameo die and heart is made with Angel Wings Mini die.

Always when I think about Jane Austen books, especially about her book Pride and Prejudice, I think about all the letters which they send it to each other. So, I made little old letter and put this beautiful romantic Vintage Lamp on it. For a 'wax seal' I used bigger flower of the Vintage Lamps die and put the small one on the top of the letter.

This is it for today! Have a nice day.


Next we have Simona with her Beautiful card using CottageCutz Vintage Clock
Hello everyone and Welcome to CottageCutz Inspirational Day!
Today Vladka , I (Simona), & Cheryl are sharing new creations made with beautiful CottageCutz dies.

To make this card I chose Vintage Clock (4x4), Trellis w/ Vines (4x6) 
and Love Tags, set (4x6) dies and Cottage Impressions Frame 1 Lettering Clear Stamps (4 items). I used Distress Ink - walnut stain to color my clock. The face of the clock was colored with Copics and I added and heat embossed some clear UTEE. Around the clock face I added gold self adhesive plastic half beads.

The vines were colored with Distress Ink - peeled paint and for the little flowers I used a red Copic marker.
It's been a long time since I've last used my sewing machine to add some stitches to the card. I also distressed paper edges with distress tool.

To finish the card I added one of the tags from Love Tags set, a red bow and a brad. I stamped the word XOXO from the Frame 1 Lettering clear stamps and heat embossed it.

Hugs, Simona

Next is Me(Cheryl) with my Card using CottageCutz Elegant Hat Box Die
My card  was designed for SCS Sketch Challenge, that is where I got this layout from. I wanted to use some bright and cheery colors, and chose to go with this bright blue. I airbrushed the hat box, and then colored the flowers,and leaves with copics. Next for the hat I colored it completely with copics. I did add some Viva Pearl Pen for the black and white.dots. The flower centers are flat back pearls. 

I thought it would be cute to add the flowers to buttons, and did that on all four.

Thank you all for stopping by and hope you have enjoyed today's INSPIRATION! We will be back tomorrow for another INSPIRATION DAY! Hope you will come back and take a peek tomorrow!!!
Have a wonderful day!!!!
