Group Post Day 2 (Folk Art Dies)

Hello CottageCutz friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. This post is day 2 of  cards using the new Folk Art release.   There are 19 new designs in this release and are so perfect for cardmaking, journaling, and scrapbooking. They allow you to add a beautiful touch of folk art to whatever you may be creating.

We have had a good response when we do a group post on a new release. It gives you the opportunity to see more card samples from the Design Team. There are 3 samples in today's post and we also showed  3 samples yesterday. See Day 1 samples here.

Also just released is our Patriotic 4th of July release with 12 amazing patriotic designs and bundle pricing at 40% off. If you love making patriotic cards to honor a veteran, to celebrate the 4th of July or to display your love for America, we have you covered with this new release. The DT will begin showing samples starting Monday and continue for the month of June.

Now onto our Folk Art Samples for today.

Card 1:  Our first sample today is from Kristine Breach.  She used the Folk Art Deer, Folk Art Trees, Stitched Alphabet and Hills Slimline dies to create a fun fold bridge card. It's such a beautiful Christmas card and it shows you how easily these dies can be taken into the Christmas season.
The use of non-traditional colors are so perfect way for a folk-art design card. This would also be a great home decor piece to display at Christmas. 

Card 2: Our next sample for today is from Marla Harris. She used the Folk Art Rooster, Folk Art Flowers Mixed, Folk Art Egg and the Fence & Grass dies to create a stunning mixed media thinking of you card. 
Her images are colored with distress inks. She splattered with water as well as white gouache to the images. She has captured the folk-art design in such a unique and beautiful way. 

Card 3: Our last sample for today is one that I (Mary Marsh) created using the Folk Art House (small and medium) and the Folk Art Trees dies to also create a Christmas card. I was inspired by Kristine's sample, so I decided to try a Christmas theme using these dies. I thought the house and trees would work well in a snow globe. 

For the globe I used the largest Circle Set die and then embossed with a snowfall folder. For the base of the globe and ribbon I used and old die -Snowglobe w/Fawn. I covered my images with a plastic window sheet. 
The Peace and Joy phrase is a die from last year's Christmas release. 

That's it for our samples for today. I hope we have given you some ideas for ways to use the new Folk Art dies.

Reminder: Marla has a new video on the CottageCutz You Tube channel and there is a giveaway.
