Hello from the CottageCutz Lighthouse

Hello, and welcome to the Scrapping Cottage Blog!  This is Beverly Polen from Guneaux Designs, and I am a guest designer today.  Before I share information about my "Hello from the CottageCutz Lighthouse" card, let me remind you that the Scrapping Cottage Memorial Day Sale ends at 9:00 p.m. PDT tonight!  Dies are on sale for up to 40% off, so don't miss out on getting dies you have been wanting!

My card share with you today features the CottageCutz Hello Phrase die, which is a newly released word die from the CottageCutz Expressions Plus collection.  There are 35 of these new word dies and they are on sale for 25% off until tonight!  Here is my card:

My "Hello from the CottageCutz Lighthouse" card also features other CottageCutz dies:  the CotttageCutz Lighthouse die, Stitched Wide Circle Frame Set dies, Cottage Cutz Lighthouse w/ Clouds die, and CottageCutz Seagulls in Flight Die.

These are the steps I followed to make this "Hello from the CottageCutz Lighthouse" card.

  • Using the CottageCutz Lighthouse die, I cut out the lighthouse in white, red, blue, green, gray, and yellow card stock and assembled the pieces.
  • I used the CottageCutz Stitched Wide Circle Frame Set dies to cut several circle frames and a circle from a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of white card stock.
  • I glued the circle frames together to create dimension.
  • Using the circle that was cut out from the 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of card stock, I colored a sky, rock cliff, and ocean on it.  I added Liquid Applique in selected area and heat set it.

  • I cut out three "hello" sentiments using the CottageCutz Hello Phrase die and blue card stock. I glued them together, covered the sentiment with VersaMark Ink and Clear Embossing Powder, and heat set it.
  • I began assembling my card by cutting a 4-1/2" x 5-3/4" piece of blue card stock to which I glued the 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of white card stock with the circle cut out.
  • To this piece I attached both the circle frames and colored circle piece inside the cut out circle.
  • Lastly, I added the lighthouse, seagulls, and hello sentiment to the above piece.  Then I attached that to a 4-3/4" x 6" white card base.

Bev, Your card is amazing! The idea of using liquid applique for whitecaps is creative and your use of thicker materials to create almost a peakhole effect into the ocean scene is wonderful. Very impressive!
