Garden Girl

Hello CottageCutz Friends!!! Hope you are having a super awesome weekend!!
Today I'm sharing a mini card made using the CottageCutz Petites. I LOVE all the Petites, as they are perfect for any size card, and for mini albums as well.

On my card today I used the Darling CottageCutz Window cut in white, and distress with Antique Linen. Next I colored the curtain with copic in a red shade. Next I cut out the CottageCutz Grass with Cattails using a dark green card stock. I did distress it a bit using a green distress ink. For the CottageCutz Rose, I used distressed inks on it, and dusted it on. My card was super simple to make, as there is just 2 layers, with some RRR Ric Rac running across the center. I then stamped some sentiments on the bottom of the card, and one inside the window. super easy!!

Hope you enjoyed today's post!! Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!!
hugs to all,

Bouquet in Vase

Hi! Vladka here again! 
Flowers are always great way to say thank you to someone. This is why I think that paper bouquet in vase and Thank you note goes together very well. I want to have focal point on the bouquet and so I put it on white background. 
To color all die cut pieces, I put some color on my craft sheet with Distress Inks and added a little water. Then I put die cut pieces into this mixture and waited them to dry. Later I glued everything together and card was finished. Here I used two dies:  Flower Bouquet Jar and Vase with Flowers

I hope you like it! Have a great time!

Tree as symbol of growing and learning

Hi all! Vladka here with you again! 

Today I would like to show you, what I made for my very good friend. She lives in America now and she is a teacher to three years old kids. This is why she needed something to hang on the class door. And I came up with idea to create a tree, because for me it is symbol of growing, learning... So I made this one first. Tree´s ladder is created so, that it looks like inches. There is a lot of animals on the top of the tree and under it: butterflies, little bear and the bigger one, lion, bird, hedgehogs and owl. I added also leafs, grass, mushrooms, nest and birdhouse.

I made also another one with months on it. She will add children´s names on it. So they will  all  know when children have their birthdays. Both trees are cut out with scissors and all pieces are colored with Distress Ink. It is really cute, although it is pretty big.

My list of all used dies is today really long, but I really had fun to play with all this cute dies.

CottageCutz Baby Girl Pocket Card

Greetings everyone and welcome to another CottageCutz Creations.   It's Carol here today with a pocket card from the beautiful Baby release over at The Scrapping Cottage.  Aren't the dies just darling!
The Fancy Dress die is featured on the front of the card envelope.  Isn't this so sweet.  I cut the dress on pink cardstock and distress with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink, mounted the dress on the Tea Time Doily.  The Baby die from the Expressions release was used for the sentiment on this pretty card.
This card was created with a glassine bag.  In the inside pocket is this sweet tag made with the Fancy Mary Jane Shoes Die.  It doesn't get more "Baby Girl" than that!
It was so fun to create this.  I love rolling roses with burlap.  I think they are just so sweet.  Thanks for stopping by today to view my post.  I appreciate it very much.  Until next time, Happy Crafting and see you soon!  Here are the dies used:

Birthday Party Bear

 Hi! Vladka here!
This card was created for my dear Friend. She likes this motive and she really knows how to work with crochet hook and knitting needle. I bought her book how to knit cute little bears and so, the new  Birthday Party Bear die was perfect to made card out of it.
I also used Fancy Bassinet die to put bear in the basket. Everything is colored with Distress Inks. I did also some stamping on the background and card was finished. Sentiment is in Slovenian language and it´s meaning is: "Friendship isn't a big thing - it's a million little things." 
I wish you all great day!
