Quick & Easy Birthday Card!

Hello everyone, today I'm sharing a mini card I made for the Scrapping Cottage using the New CottageCutz "Birthday Release"!

My card measures 2 1/2" x 6"
Super FAST & Easy card to make! I cut my card stock 5" x 10" and then scored at 2 1/2" inches on the 5" side . Next I cut my card stock at 2 1/4" x 5 3/4" and then rounded the corners with the 1/2" corner rounder on both the card stock and design paper. Design Paper is Birthday pack from American Crafts.
Next I cut the CottageCutz Happy Birthday Present with Blue card stock, and then used glitter glue over the wording and the bow. Set aside to dry, and then cut the CottageCutz Expressions "Niece" in red card stock. I ran some RRR in gingham print around the front, and tied a bow on. Lastly I added a button with some Jute!
Below are linked photo's of the CottageCutz I used:

I love making quick and easy cards once in awhile, as they are nice to have for that last minute gift giving!!

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!
Hugs to all,

CottageCutz Halloween Pennant

Welcome friends and crafters.  Today it's Carol here and I have a Halloween pennant to share with you using the beautiful CottageCutz Halloween dies.   This pennant is 11 inches long.  I did not use a template.  I just cut it out with cereal box chipboard and covered with designer paper.  The Haunted House is 4 x 6 and mounted on a large rosette.
For decoration across the top of the pennant the Spooky Iron fence was used.  The spiders are an older Martha Stewart punch.
The Filigree Bat was used to decorate the Rosette.  This was so much fun to make and would make a wonderful addition to you Halloween Home Decor projects.
Thank you for stopping by today to view my project.  I appreciate it very much.  Happy Crafting.  See you again soon.  These are the dies I used:

CottageCutz Birthday Party Bear

Hello everyone, Cheryl here to share with you today a Birthday Surprise card I made for the Scrapping Cottage using the Darling "Birthday CottageCutz" Dies. LOVE this release, as all the dies are absolutely darling and perfect for cards,mini albums, and scrapbook pages.

On my card here, I used the Darling CottageCutz Birthday Party Bear , and colored him and everything else with copics. I did add some liquid glitter glue to the cupcake, present, and balloon. I also used the CottageCutz Birthday Candle Border, and glittered it up too. Its behind the bear and his gift,cupcake,and flower pot.

Next I used some Birthday Design Paper, and then layered the border across the center of my card with the CottageCutz Birthday Border. The CottageCutz Surprise was cut in white, and then colored with copics to match the dp. 

Here are the CottageCutz Dies I used:

CottageCutz Sweet Petites Owl

Hello CottageCutz Friends, and Happy Sunday to all!
Today I'm sharing a 5 x 5 card I made using the CottageCutz Petites Release. 

My card Measures 5" x 5"
I used the CottageCutz sweet Petite Owl, and the Butterfly with flowers. I cut the own out in white, and then in green, so I could dust him, and then use the green branch from the 2nd owl that I cut in green. Then I cut out the Butterfly with flowers in green & Orange. I wanted my butterfly to be orange, I dusted that too, and then added some glitter glue in red,orange,brown and a light orange.

I used some design Paper I had picked up for super cheap, and then used seam binding from RRR for my bow!

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!

Birdhouse in Winter

Hi! Vladka here!
I'm not calling Winter yet, but I just can't resist to create winter cards. This scene was created with following dies: Birdhouse (Petites)Spring Tweetie and Expressions Season's Greetings
Everything was colored with Distress Inks. Birdhouse and branch were cut out twice - once from kraft cardstock and second time from white cardstock. The white once were used for snow imitation. I just trimmed and glued part of them on colored die cuts. 
I wish you all great weekend!

October - Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Hi all! Vladka here! 

Today I want to share with you two special cards, which are dedicated to special month - October. This month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and his symbol is pink ribbon. Both my cards will go to Europa Donna (in Slovenia), which is The European Breast Cancer Coalition. I´m really happy that I can participate in this.

So, I created two cards with pink bows, cut out with bow die from Homemade Christmas Gift Set and I put the Butterfly on one and Dragonfly on another.

Unfortunately sometimes we need to battle the battles which we didn´t choose and in such life situations love and prayers are most important. This is the way we all can help. So, I´m leaving you for today with this quote:

Where there is great Love,
there are always Miracles!
