CottageCutz Shabby Chic New Home

Greetings dear ones.  It's Carol here today sharing a project I created for CottageCutz.  Tomorrow we are having a Blog Hop with some great prizes so be sure to come back for your chance to win.   This card was going to be for the blog hop, but I changed my mind.  Isn't it a woman's prerogative to change her mind...lol
Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall there is no place like home.  The inspiration for this card came from pinterest and this great little find:  Door 23, 24, & 27.  Isn't that awesome.   Isn't this a great way to Congratulate someone on their new home.  Bet they would display this for a long time "in" that new home!!!
 We'll start with Winter for the front door as that seems the time of year a house gets decorated the most.   Right down to the little Snow Bunny by the door!
To the left is Spring and to the right is Summer.  The last panel is fall

Below is a list of the CottageCutz die that were used to create this.  If you are wanting to make one of these of your own, you can find the measurements for the panels and the hinges in the video along with detailed discriptions of what was used.  Thanks for stopping by today.  Be sure to come back tomorrow for the Blog Hop!

Gift tags as mini cards

Hello everybody, Vladka here! 

I have new project for you. This time I want to show you my two gift tags and they can also be used as mini cards.
Basis of the first tag is made from Homemade tag die and I embellished it with Home Baked Stamps and with word Love, made with Tweet Love die. The inside of the tag hide some sentiments, flowers and a little greenery.

For second tag I used Oval Doily for the basis die and added birthday wish in the inside.

And here are all dies on one place. Click on the photo will take you to the store:

I wish you beautiful Sunday!

CottageCutz Sweet Classic Window

Today's card was designed for CottageCutz using the Beautiful Dies from the "This N That" Release! Love love love this release and all the beautiful envelopes and such!

So for my card I used 3 of the new CottageCutz "This N That" Dies 

Others CottageCutz are :

I absolutely LOVE the window dies, and there are sooo many things to do with them!! Love that you can add flowers and dress it up , or add wallpaper to behind and dress it down a bit. You could leave it plain, and add nothing. AWESOME Die!!! Also LOVE the pocket. I used it on my card here to hide a hidden message in the pocket. I used the "Eyelet Insert Card/Tag" and left it white!!

For the border across my card, I used the Oval Doily and Frame , well just the frame, and used it as a border , you can see it a little in the photo's. I love the look of this as a border, its perfect!!

 All Photo's below are LINKED, just click on each photo :)

Next 2 are from older releases, but are favorites too!!

Lastly I added some RRR Seam Binding, Lace, and buttons to complete my card. Stamps are all SU! 

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!!

Baby card

Good morning everyone!
Here I am (Simona) with a baby card this time,
showcasing beautiful CottageCutz dies

This time I made a drawer step card.
The base is cut out of light blue Core'dinations paper and
inked with Ranger broken china and
chipped sapphire. I thought that would be fun
to use the bow from the Baby Frame die on the draws.
I cut the bows out of white cardstock and colored
them with copics.

Teddy, bib and socks were also cut out of white cardstock and colored with copics.

Adorable baby picture is from Graphic 45 Little Darlings collection.

The boxes for the letters and the letters were cut out of white
cardstock and colored with copics  or sponged with Ranger
broken china and chipped sapphire.
I also glued some twine around the boxes and made a little bow.

In addition I used Martha Stewart punches and some copper brads.

Thank you for looking.


The dies used:

Have a great day!!
