Vintage Shoppe Sign

Hi, all. Vladka is here today.
Today´s card is a little bit different, it has more mix media look. I used scrapbook paper for background and I glued it with gel medium  on the basic surface and colored the borders with black gelato. For the focal point, I used this gorgeous Vintage Shoppe Sign die and added a little heart in the middle of it. 
Together with sentiment is this quiet little place, to rest your soul and to gather strenght for new challenges in life. First I actually want to reproduce the look of black and white photography with touch of red, but it did'n turn out so. But on my modified photo you can see how it would look  black and white. :) 
I wish you all great time!

CottageCutz Victorian Birdcage

 Greetings friends and papercrafters. It's Carol here. For today's creation for CottageCutz dies is this lovely card using the Victorian Birdcage, Flourish Bird Corner and the Flourish Vine.
 Don''t you love the background paper.  It has little bird cages.  I just had to use it-it goes along so well with the theme.  Look at the beautiful lines and scrolls in the birdcage.  It's so pretty.  I painted it with glue and sprinkled with glitter.
 You can see the bird flourish corner here.  This is a die you will find yourself using a lot.  I know I will with all the birds are use in my creations. 
Thank you so much for stopping by today to view this creation.  It is appreciated very much.  Until next time, Happy Crafting.  See you again soon.  These are the dies used.

Woman Silhouette in Victorian Frame

Hi all. Vladka here today.
This time I've combined one new and one old die. New one is taken from Victorian release and it is this gorgeous Fancy Victorian Frame. Older die was used just partly. I've used just silhouette from Hand Mirror and Cameo die
Frame and Cameo were colored with Enamel Accent Black and inside part of the frame is colored with white paint and sanded with emery paper. Background was stamped with text stamp and sentiment was stamped on vellum paper. 
This is it for today, I wish you good start in new week.

Shabby Chic Butterfly Post-it notepad


 Hello everyone, and Happy Saturday to all!
Today I'm posting an extra post to share a Post-it Notepad I made using CottageCutz Dies,for a dear friend. We celebrated Janna's Birthday Yesterday at my house, with a luncheon and lots of crafty fun!

 I just had to use this beautiful CottageCutz Victorian Butterfly Flourish as I love airbrushing them. I also added some glitter in a couple of pink colors to give it some bling. Love the way it looks in person!
The card base was cut on the cricut, and then just added some circle layers in one of my favorite Bazzill Patterns, and in a Polka dot blue. Next I added some Sweetheart Blossoms, branches, and a little seam binding to complete my Post -it notepad for today.
 I also went through my stash of stamps, and found a couple of sweet ones, that were perfect for her card/post-it.

Thank you for looking and have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs to all,
Cheryl
