Welcome To Our Home Mini Décor Project

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends!  
Melinda here with you on this Terrific Tuesdie!  Today I am sharing a Patriotic Mini Home Décor project. It features some sweet little cupcakes from one of the dies from the New Sweet Treats Release! 
Here is my project.
I started with a cute little distressed home metal shaped silhouette. I found it at the dollar store.

I created the inner sentiment on my computer. I printed it off on some plain white cardstock. I printed it off on four different sizes as I wasn't sure which size would look the best.

Once I picked the size I felt would work, I used the third largest pierce circle die and cut it out.

I then cut, colored and assembled some of the sweet little cupcakes from the Pedestal Stand W/ Cupcakes die. I cut all the pieces out in white cardstock. I only had to color in the red and blue pieces. Easy peasy!  I also added some clear stickles to the "stars" on the cupcakes and on some of the white frosting.  I used some red stickles on the berries to give them a little sparkle.

I used some foliage from the Christmas Floral and Lantern With Pine Boughs Dies. I cut them all out in white cardstock as well. I then colored in the little stems with the "holly" berries on them.

I also added a dot of some blue stickles to the centers of the stars on the image. The little bow I added on the chimney is also from the Lantern With Pine Boughs Die.

Here are a couple of closeup photos of the cute cupcakes and foliage. You can see them sitting on the cute base that is a part of the die as well.

I did mount the white pierced circle with the image onto the next size up pierced circle that I used to cut out some Kraft cardstock. I added some foam tape between them to give it all a little lift from the base.

Here it is on my dining room table. I decided I didn't quite like it here. Felt like it got lost in the

Here is where I decided to put it. on my table in my entrance. 

Here is the new sweet treats release.

The Dies I used to create this project:

I also used the Lantern With Pine Boughs Die which is a discontinued die. However both the Christmas Farmhouse Floral and Deer Floral Spray dies both have some great "Holly berry" type alternatives.

Sweet Slimline Birthday

Hello and welcome back ~ it's Kris here on this sweet Sunday... or shall I say sundae? ☺  This week I'm sharing a yummy slimline birthday card using the Ice Cream Sundae die from the new Sweet Treats release, along with some other funtastic CottageCutz dies! 

Design Steps

I cut a piece of pink cardstock to 8-1/2" x 7" & scored at 3-1/2" along the 7" side.

Next, I die-cut a white frame (I used glittery white cardstock) from the Windows Slimline die.

And then I cut 3 pieces of coordinating patterned papers at 2-1/2" x 2-3/4".  

I glued the patterned papers to the back of window frames, and then glued the frame to card base.

Next, I cut all my pieces with the Ice Cream Sundae and sentiment dies and glued together.  
  • The cupcake liners were cut from patterned papers in the same paper pad as my 3 rectangle frame pieces so they coordinate.  I cut the rest of the die out of pink, brown and white cardstock. 
  •  I gave some shadows to the strawberry & chocolate ice cream and colored all other pieces with Copic markers.  
  • The top layers of the sentiments were cut from glittery white cardstock, like the frame.
  • I added some shaker elements to the ice cream for some sparkly "sprinkles"

And to finish the card, I attached all the die-cut elements to my card front using foam dots.  Easy peasy!

Thanks for taking a peek!  Hope your Sunday is extra sweet!
