Sweet Spring Kitty

Hello everyone, today I wanted to share another card I made using the Darling CottageCutz Sweet Spring Kitty die, along with the CottageCutz Expressions "Love" Die.

I sooooo LOVE this sweet little kitty, its sooo SWEET!!! She is laying in a basket of of flowers that were colored using copics. I added some viva pearl pen dots to the centers of the flowers. All pieces were colored with the copic markers. I got to use this new design paper called Hello Sunshine, its one of the new lines from Pink Paislee. I also used some Really Reasonable Ribbon,Flower, and some pearls to complete my card today.

CottageCutz Dies I used! Also linked to the Scrapping Cottage Store for easy finding.

Thank you for looking and have a wonderful day!
hugs to all,

CottageCutz Springtime Floral/MOM Card

Hello everyone, and Happy Tuesday to all! Today's card was designed using CottageCutz Dies for Really Reasonable Ribbon's Monochromatic Challenge that started today. For my card I chose to use Yellow as my color and Grey and white as my neutrals.

I absolutely LOVE the CottageCutz Springtime Floral die, its absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!!  I added some Viva Pearl Pen dots to the this beautiful floral piece, and a small polka dotted bow and flower to the bottom of it.
The MOM sentiment is from the New CottageCutz Expressions Release found here. I'm LOVING using these new CottageCutz as they are super fun and simple to use.

The frame around the edges is a punch around the page. I used it for both layers. All card stock is a shimmery American Crafts card stock, one has dots embossed in it, and the others are just a shimmery regular card stock. I also used Really Reasonable Ribbons Sweetheart Blossoms. I have to say, I think these blossoms are one of my favorite flowers out there. I LOVE them!!! The Ribbon is from this months Ribbon club assortment.
Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!!
Hugs to all,

Easter Gift Card Holder

Happy Monday!

Kathy here with you again and I'm back with another Easter project! This time I have a gift card holder which can also be used as a small note card envelope.

I used the Fancy Envelope and Spring Embellishment CottageCutz Dies.  This has a cute little flower and Easter egg arrangement.  Here's a picture of it open.

All the die pieces were cut with white card stock and colored with chalk inks.  I used Thatched Straw, Aloe Vera, Spring Pansy (VersaMagic), and Pink Cheeks (PowderPuffs - Quick Quotes) Inks.

These are the dies I used:

Lil' Spring Chicks

Happy Saturday!

Kathy here with you today with a cute Easter card using CottageCutz's Lil' Spring Chicks and Oval Doily & Frame.

Aren't these little guys too cute?  I love the yellow, white and black color combination.  So bright and cheery looking!

Here's a little closeup of the chicks.

I cut the dies out with white card stock and colored them with Thatched Straw (VersaMagic), Banana Bliss, Rusty Nail and Orange Slice (PowderPuffs) chalk inks using makeup applicators.  I then added them to the center piece of the Oval Doily & Frame using pop dots.

These are the dies I used:

CottageCutz Spring Bunny w/Daffodil

Hello everyone and Happy Friday to all! Today I am sharing a super sweet CottageCutz die called Spring Bunny w/Daffodil, and the new CottageCutz Expressions Dies. LOVE these new words as they make crafting super simple!

For my Spring Bunny I cut him in white card stock and dusted him with distress inks. Next I colored the flower and greenery with copics. The Happy Easter was colored with blue copics, I think I should have added some glitter to it, but I had already glued them on :( 
The dp I used was some super old Easter paper I had and then the pink was American Crafts/Pebbles(Garden Party) Ribbon is Really Reasonable Ribbons blue Gingham. Super simple card to make as it took me under 30 minutes for this one.
Measures 6" x 6"

All CottageCutz photo's above are linked to the CottageCutz Store here.
Hope you all have a super wonderful weekend!

CottageCutz Spring Mini Album Page 5 & 6

Hello everyone, it's Carol with a project share.   Today is the final installment of the Cottage Cutz Spring Mini Album I created.  These are the last two pages.  This mini was created with the We R Memory Keepers Envelope punch board using this tutorial.  I actually love this style mini even though it is really different for me.  I didn't use any chunky layers.  I tried to keep it pretty flat.
This page features the cute Sweetheart Lovebirds, Fancy Floral Butterfly Border, and the Fancy Floral Corner #2.  The banner was created with a Martha Stewart Border punch.
 This opens up to reveal the inside which feature the sweet Spring Duckling die.  Isn't he darling?  Again the Martha Stewart Punch around the page was used for the frames.
For the last page the Fancy Floral Corner #1 was cut twice and overlapped to create the pocket to hold the tag.  The Garden Butterfly Vine was used to decorate the tag insert.  This completes the Spring Album.  If you would like to review the entire album, I have included the video I created.  Thanks so much for visiting me today.  I really appreciate it.  Happy Crafting....see you soon.
 Here are the dies used:
