CottageCutz Sweet Spring Kitty

Can you believe Mother's Day is just around the corner.  Hello CottageCutz Lovers and welcome.  It's Carol today.  This is a card I created with these sweet CottageCutz dies.  Have you noticed lately how burlap is all the rage,   I have to admit that I just love it.  I used a piece of hot pink burlap on this creation and rolled some roses with it too.
This is was so fun to make.  I used Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers, Mowed Lawn, and Mustard Seed distress ink to color my basket and flowers.  Love using distress inks.  The more I get ink on my fingers the better I like it....lol   Thank you so much for stopping by to see what I have been up too.  I appreciated your visit and wish you a day filled with the best creative endeavors!  Here are the dies I used.

Spring Daffodils

Hello again! It's  Simona with you today.

I would love to share another Easter card with you
I made with beautiful CottageCutz dies
The Scarpping Cottage Blog.
These two dies go so well together.

Take a look

The dies were cut out of white card stock. I colored
Spring Daffodils with distress markers and for
the Ornate Cross I used antique linen distress ink pad.

Then I glued colored Spring Daffodils on top of
the Ornate Cross. The background was dry embossed.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter...

Take care and see you all next time!

Baby Buggy

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Kathy with you and today I have a cute baby card for you using the Baby BuggyBest Wishes, and Fancy Floral Lace Border CottageCutz Dies from The Scraping Cottage.

To make my card, I started with a square 4 1/4" white card base and added a piece of Fancy Floral Lace Border cut with light green paper (Chick-a-doo from S.E.I) to the bottom.  I cut a light green mat (3 1/2" x 4 3/8") and an embossed white mat slightly smaller and glued them together.  I folded Baby Pink Seam Binding in half, wrapped it around the bottom of the mats and glued it in place.  I then added the mats to the card with pop dots just above the border.

The Best Wishes Die was cut with the light green paper and glued to the mat as pictured.  The Baby Buggy Die was cut with white, light green, and a flowered designer paper from Nana's Nursery - Baby Gift Paper from DCWV.  I shaded the white pieces of the buggy body with Pixie Dust VersaMagic Ink and  glued all the pieces together as shown using a mixture of the light green and flowered papers.  The buggy was added to the card with pop dots.  I added a larger flower to the buggy with Diamond Stickles in the center.  I made a triple loop bow and added a smaller flower with White Opal Liquid Pearls added to the center.

These are the dies I used.

CottageCutz Coffee Thank You

It's Carol here today with a Cottage Cutz post for you.  Thank you-just two very small words that can make someone's day.  A show of appreciation for a kindness bestowed upon us.  That is what this sweet card is all about.  It was created to thank someone who helped me collect on some past due invoices at work.   She hasn't received it yet as she is on vacation-but I think she will love it don't you.  As I told you in my last post, I am so into burlap and neutral colors right now.  I thought it would be perfect for my "Coffee" theme.
All these cute little dies from CottageCutz helped me to make this super sweet card.  I used Mr. Snuggles, Hot Drink Cup, Cup of Latte, Thank You, and Bella Leafy Branch.  On the inside of the card I had decorated with coffee sleeve from Starbucks.  Inside the coffee sleeve I inserted a gift card.  It makes for a super cute thank you.  One I know she is going to love.
When giving a gift card try to "think outside the box".  Use something from the store you purchased it at to add to your creations.  It makes them so fun to give and a whole bunch of fun to make.  Thanks for stopping by today.  Wishing you a Happy Easter and Happy Crafting.  Here are the dies I used:

Friends are Special

Hi, all! Vladka here.

This time I was playing with  Expressions dies. I chose three of them Best Friends, Special and Thanks.

So, I came up with the sentence which you can see on the card. Other words are created with Word. But because friends are special, also some additional touch was needed. So I used another die for that: Spring Birdhouse Branch and cut them out twice and colored them with Distress Inks. Here you go! I hope you like it!
I wish you all great weekend and happy Easter!
