CottageCutz Challenge #2 - HELLO SPRING

Hi, Vladka is here!

Thank you very much for all your great cards and projects you've made for Challenge #1. Two lucky winners will be announced at the end of this post. So, stay tuned.

And here is time to start new challenge. 
This time theme is HELLO SPRING. 
So, get out your CottageCutz dies and create the project which will be associated to the spring. For example, flowers, greenery, green color are some ideas which are perfect for the spring. And please, use ONLY CottageCutz dies and not any other dies. "Add your link" button is available under the list of used dies. If you are not familiar with this button, please check this post for more explanation. Challenge will be closed on 31th of May!

Ok, let's go to my project. I hope this will inspire you a little bit. If flowers on sticks are familiar to you, this is because Yuliya showed you already how to do it and she made Easter decoration. You need to check it, it is beautiful. I shoot my video some time ago, so I thought there will be no harm if I show you my way too :) And I used the same flowers to decorate also the frame.

So, here is my video, where you will see how to color the wooden photo frame and decorate it with paper daisies and some greenery and also how to put together these daisies and create a bouquet out of them.

Suplies which I used for this project:
CottageCutz dies: listed below
Cardstock: white cardstock for die cuts
Distress Inks: Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, Brushed Corduroy, Gathered Twigs
Others: white acrylic paint, paint brush, water, wooden sticks, glue, Sizzix machine, yellow marker


And now go back to our challenge a little bit more. As I told you before, two lucky winners will be randomly chosen and will get gift certificate for Scrapping Cottage store.

First one will get gift certificate value of 50$...

... and second one in the value of 25$.

You have time till 31th of May to participate. 
Both winners will be announced in the same post as new challenge (for June) will begin.

All you need to do is take your CottageCutz dies and start creating! 
Please, use only CottageCutz dies!
Have fun and don´t forget to show us all your projects.

"Add your link" button is available under the list of used dies.


And of course we should not forget about the winners for the first challenge.

1st Gift certificate value of 50$ goes to Helena. Her card was linked under number 19:
