Ornate Poinsettia

Hi everyone!

Today I have a  Christmas card for you using the Ornate Poinsettia CottageCutz Die from The Scrapping Cottage.




This is a fairly simple card to put together!  I used a red card base with a white mat that I partially embossed and added a little sentiment and some ribbon.  I cut the Ornate Poinsettia with the red and green card stock, trimmed the flowers from the red and glued them on top of the green.  I then just added some Buttercup Liquid Pearls, snowflake button and a bow with a button on top.

I hope this gives you a little inspiration for Christmas cards this year!

This is the die I used:

CottageCutz Baby Shower Candy Holder

Greetings everybody!  Today it's Carol with a creation using the beautiful Baby release from CottageCutz.  Aren't they just darling.  The We R Memory Keepers Candy board was used to create these sweet little candy holders.  The combination of the board and pretty CottageCutz dies make a gorgeous baby shower favor.
The first one is made with the Duck Pull Toy Die.  It is mounted on a labels die and that is mounted on a rosette.  A little banner with the Expressions "Baby" die rounds out this very lovely little candy holder.
Next we have this sweet little Baby Elephant die.  Now tell me how cute is that?  Right!  It was create exactly like the duck one.  Imagine all the possibilities with the baby animal dies in the 2014 Baby release.  You could make all the candy holders the same but use different animals.  Super sweet and very easy.
Thank you for stopping by today.  It was a pleasure to show you my latest creation.  Hope this inspires you to create something lovely for you next baby shower.  Until next time.  Happy Crafting and see you soon.

Animal Party

Hi, all! Vladka here and today I have animal project for you. That is how invitations and party sticks look like. 
This is what you need to prepare perfect children party with animal theme. And now, step by step. First you need invitations and I created them with three different motives:  Baby Elephant, Baby Lion and Baby Hippo. Text was designed in Word and printed on white card stock.
Then I made this cute little sticks, which can be used for playing later. Besides all three animal motives, I used also  Magnolia Doily die.
And last but not least, I decorate paper napkins with the same motives and I find this so cute. I think it will be also possible to do this for paper cups. Animals are colored with Copics, but otherwise I used white and blue card stock and wooden sticks which I bought in grocery shop. 
Till next time, I wish you all great time.

Sweeet Ride A Pony Baby Card

Hello everyone, and Happy Sunday to all!!! Today I wanted to share a Sweet Baby card  I made. My card was designed for The Scrapping Cottage, using the Beautiful CottageCutz Baby Dies from The Scrapping Cottage. I also created this card for Really Reasonable Ribbon using beautiful Ribbon, Tulle, and Hemp!

The Baby Dies I used are CottageCutz dies, and are from the New Baby Release (The Scrapping Cottage). I used the CottageCutz "It's a Girl Balloon" Die, and Dusted it and then colored the bow, and strings with copics. Next I decided to use the DARLING CottageCutz "Ride A Pony" Die. On this one, I colored all the pieces using the Copic Markers. Then added some pearls in white.

My Ribbon, Tulle, Hemp and Buttons are from Really Reasonable Ribbon. Love the softness of this card, and of course these are my favorite colors!!!

The Design Paper is from American Crafts and one is the Pebbles collection.

I enjoyed creating my card for today! It was super easy!!!

Thank you for stopping by, and for all your lovely comments! Hope you have a super AWESOME Day!!
Hugs to all,
Cheryl

Rugged Baby Boy Clothes


Hi everyone!

Kathy here with you and today I have a cute little boy card for you using the Rugged Baby Boy Clothes CottageCutz Die!




I cut the jeans part of the die using a dark blue card stock and used a bright green plaid designer paper for the shirts.  I also cute the pocket and belt of the jeans with the green plaid, trimmed them and glued them to the jeans.  I love these two colors together against the white.  It's so cheery looking and cute for a boy!

The card base is the same dark blue as the jeans with a bright green mat and then a white mat that I embossed and stamped with a sentiment.  I embellished the card with some blue ribbon, baby rick rack, jute twine and heart buttons all in matching colors.

This is the CottageCutz Die I used:

Let's take a Day off! card


Today I am sharing with you my new Summer card I created with beautiful CottageCutz Petite Summer Collections 2014 of dies. So cute images and lots of fun work with this collection.

I used just one Flipflops die cut for this card. 

 

First, I created sand background using brown cardstock and craft sponges for water and edges. 
Next, I cut flip-flops out couple times, sponge the edges and glued to sand background. Added sentiment on card and decorate flipflops with rhinestone.


OHHHHH, summer, summer, summer..... Love the summer time. This is my favorite period in the year.

CottageCutz Baby Boy Shower Banner

Greetings everyone and welcome to a CottageCutz Design Team post with Carol as your host.  Today the creation is this lovely Baby Boy Shower banner.  Isn't this cute for a decoration for a baby shower!  This is super fun to create and display using a variety of pretty CottageCutz dies from the 2014 Baby collection
The banner was created with the Spellbinders Shapabilities Nested-Lacy Pennants.  That is actually the base, but there are many layers used to make it as big as and full as you see here.  For the outside lace edge the CottageCutz Fancy Lace Border was used.  It only needed one cut for each side and one for the top that was cut to fit.  For this banner the Baby Buggy Mini was used along with the Bow Mini.  The Leafy Branch Mini was used under the flower accents.
For the middle Banner the Bib Mini, Bow Mini, and Leafy Branch Mini are featured.  The Baby Boy Shower words used are from the CottageCutz Expressions release.
For the last section of the banner Sippy Cup Mini, Bow Mini, and Leafy Branch Mini complete the project.  The banners are tied together with seam binding and bows are created on each end and decorated with matching roses and CottageCutz Leafy Branch Mini.
Hope you have enjoyed viewing my project for today and it brings you some ideas for creating your own sweet Baby Shower decorations.  This would also be lovely hanging in the baby's room.  Just use different word dies or perhaps the baby's name.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Until next time, Happy Crafting!  Here are the dies used:
