Furever Friends

It's Anja here for my last Sunday post. Before I show you my latest card I have an announcement to make. After four and a half years as a Cottage Cutz Design Team member I decided to take some time away from crafting. There's a new exacting role waiting for me in the next weeks and I'll have a lot less time for crafting. 

It was so much fun making all the cards and paper projects using Cottage Cutz dies. Thank you to The Scrapping Cottage team for giving me this opportunity. This dies are forever going to be my favorite dies to work with. And I hope that in between diaper changes and all the feedings I'll still be able to follow all the new releases and projects from the talented ladies on the team. And maybe also make a card or two :)

And now to my last card. I again combined a set of stamps and slimline dies. This time I made a bunch of furry friends with a scenic background.

For this card I used:

- Cottage Cutz dies (Lil' Bluebird Designs Forest Friends Stamp Set, Lil' Bluebird Designs Forest Friends Die Set, Mountains & Trees Slimline),

- Zig watercolor brushes (010, 029, 040, 041, 047, 052, 060, 061, 062, 063, 065, 066, 069, 070, 071, 072, 091, 093, 096, 099, 260),

- Distress Inks,

- watercolor paper for stamping,

- white card stock for die cuts and background (9,5x20,5 cm), 

- white card base (21x10 cm),

- black pigment ink,

- acrylic block,

- watercolor brush,

- washi tape,

- paper glue. 


First I stamped and colored all the images. I made more to have more options to make a scene in the end. This time I used watercolor brushes for coloring.  

Next I made all the background pieces. I used Mountains & Trees Slimline and it's so easy to make a beautiful background scenery with it. I just colored all the pieces with Distress Inks and glued one on the top of another. Then I glued this paper sandwich to the card base. 

Before adhering the last piece I stamped the sentiment in the right corner. 

Last I added all the animals and colored pieces and adhered it on the background scene. And my card was done. 

Thank you for visiting the blog and leaving all the comments. I hope that my projects gave you some crafty inspiration over the years.

I wish you all a nice Sunday and all the best in the future.
