Blessings Card

Hey crafty friends,
So glad you stopped in today! Happy Easter! Today I am sharing a card I created with an Easter or even just a thoughtful blessings card. Here is what I created.
My card is a top folding A4 card.

As usual, I started by cutting all of my pieces out in white. I used my markers to color my various pieces.

I layered the two white cross pieces together. I wanted to keep the crosses white but wanted to add a little extra pizzaz to it. So I decided to brush a little sparkle on it.

I then proceeded to build my flowers and leaves around it. I also built the cute little bird after I colored all of the various pieces. I went ahead and mounted all that to a double stitched oval with a piece of patterned paper. I put that onto the next largest white double stitched oval mat. I used a piece of green plaid paper 

Here's another view of the finished card to show you the depth of the pretty flowers and the little bird.

Spring All Occasion Card

Hello friends, it's Marla here today and I have a new YouTube video featuring the "Spring Daffodils" die.  I am so happy that it is finally flower season once again, aren't you?  Creating cards that include flowers really bring me great joy.  I chose not to add a sentiment to the front of this card because I thought it could be used for many different occasions.  I love keeping several cards like these on hand to use in a pinch.

I hope you'll join me over on the CottageCutz YouTube Channel to see how this card came together.  If you can't join me, I've linked the CottageCutz product I used below.

Until next time... Marla

Miss Spring Bunny & Hot Air Balloon

Hello, welcome back friends!

Kris here to share some Easter inspiration with you!

This Easter card is cute and SO EASY to make!  It features Miss Spring Bunny and the Spring Hot Air Balloon dies

I also want to point out that you have until 9 PM (Pacific) TONIGHT to take advantage of this:


I die cut Miss Spring Bunny and the Spring Hot Air Balloon from white cardstock and colored with Copics, then assembled.

I also die cut the clouds from the Stitched Sun, Clouds and Umbrella die

(aren't these adorable?!)

I decided to make this a 4" x 6" card to get the height needed for the hot air balloon.  I cut a piece of white cardstock at 4 x 6" then I used the largest Scalloped Rectangle die and used the "die extension" method to make it fit within my 4 x 6" with an equal border all around.  

Next, I used one of the Grass Slimline dies to cut grass into the bottom portion of my scalloped panel.  Instead of layering my grass on top, I fit it back into the cut out section like a puzzle!  That way I have scalloped edges all around the 3 sides of my grass layer!  ☺ 

I added Distress Oxide ink to both pieces; Peacock Feathers for the top and Twisted Citron & Mowed Lawn for the Grass. 

I added my clouds and stamped a sentiment on grass, then layered onto a piece of white cardstock cut a li'l larger.  My card base is cut at 6" x 8" and scored in half at 4".  I popped my Bunny and Balloon onto front with foam tape.



Thank you so much for taking a peek today!
