CottageCutz Hawaiian Latch Card

Hello everyone, today I have a Latch card to share with you all. I made this card using CottageCutz Tropical Release and for Splitcoaststampers Latch card challenge.
 
My card was super easy and fun to make.
I used the Darling CottageCutz Hula Owl, Tiki Hut, and flower for this card. All were cut using white card stock, and then colored with copics. The eyes for the owl were done using the Black viva pearl pen. I really enjoyed making my card for SCS challenge, and this is one super fun fold!
 
Ribbon used is from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and I did add some random buttons, and half backed pearls. Sewing was done on the Basicgrey design paper as well to embellish my card.

Here it is open.
Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!
hugs,
Cheryl

Todays card was designed for SCS challenge Free for all, we are to use the word JUNE for our recipe recipe, so I used the letters for each items below.
J=June card(1 of them)
U=Underwater fun
N=Neon Fish
E=Echo Park Design Paper/Embellishment (Double Points??) hehehehe
 
I cut both of the CottageCutz fish using white card stock, and I flipped the 1 fish so it was facing the other fish. I thought it would be cute that way.

  • For the water I used-BG15,B04BG72,BG23

Hello everyone,
Today's Splitcoaststampers challenge was a fun one, as I got to use a lot of my normal tools for today. And a few of my favorites! My favorite is my Big Shots Machine, since I love using die cuts. I also love my Judikins dusters , they are the best. Next I love the purple cow trimmer :) those are a few of my FAV'S.

I used the
PURPLE COW TRIMMER to trim all papers, then the
BIG SHOTS to cut all my die cuts.
SCISSORS to cut my ribbon,
POKEY TOOL to poke the pieces from my die cut,
DUSTER to dust the dress on the CottageCutz Victorian girl,
CLEAR BLOCK to stamp my sentiment,
GLUE GUN to add buttons to the corners
SEWING MACHINE- sewing on my card, love sewing!!!!!
 
The spellbinders die I used was one I bought at Michaels Craft when they were on sale for 5.00 cannot believe I got 8 sets for 5 each, then I take my mom by there last week and she gets them for a whopping 1.90, cannot believe that!!!! CRAZY I tell ya! wish they would have had more....hehehehe
