Group Post Featuring Folk Art Release

Hello CottageCutz friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. This post is featuring 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 tomorrow we will have another 3 samples. 

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 Pam Mackay. She created a beautiful slimline card (8 1/2" x 3 1/2") to send to a friend that she hasn't talked to in a while. Her card is featuring the new Folk Art Cat, Folk Art Rabbit and Folk Art Flowers dies. 

She placed her images on black cardstock and then onto a pink layering panel. These colors really make the images pop. I like how she circled the images with hearts and stems and then her middle panel is more flowers. She has really captured the essence of folk-art design with this card. Her friend will love it and, it's a great way of reconnecting. 

 Card 2: Our next sample today is from Melinda Beltran. She used the Folk Art Hen die and the Folk Art Egg die to create this beauty. The colors she used on the hen and egg give it a vintage flair. 

Her background designer paper has a rustic look and framed with the Scalloped Rectangle die helps completes the vintage style. The punny sentiment certainly will produce a smile for the recipient and is a perfect ending for her card.  It will be a great pick-me-up card for someone who need a little cheering. 
Card 3:  Our last sample for today is one that I (Mary Marsh) created using the Folk Art Heart die.  I used the colors from this week's color challenge #951 on Splitcoaststampers. 
We were to use berry burst, lemon lolly and shaded spruce for our color trio.

I made this card for my good friend who is dealing with a "C" diagnosis on her hubby. I want to let her know that I am supporting both of them. 

I embossed the card base with a floral embossing folder for added interest since this card is a bit more on the clean and simple side. The heart is cut in the required challenge colors. I stamped my sentiment in berry burst ink on lemon lolly cardstock. Added a few sequins to finish off the card.
That's it for our samples for today. Stop back again on Saturday to check out what the other designers have created.
