Quick & Easy Birthday Card!

Hello everyone, today I'm sharing a mini card I made for the Scrapping Cottage using the New "Birthday Release"!

My card measures 2 1/2" x 6"
Super FAST & Easy card to make! I cut my card stock 5" x 10" and then scored at 2 1/2" inches on the 5" side . Next I cut my card stock at 2 1/4" x 5 3/4" and then rounded the corners with the 1/2" corner rounder on both the card stock and design paper. Design Paper is Birthday pack from American Crafts.
Next I cut the CottageCutz Happy Birthday Present with Blue card stock, and then used glitter glue over the wording and the bow. Set aside to dry, and then cut the CottageCutz Expressions "Niece" in red card stock. I ran some Really Reasonable Ribbon in gingham print around the front, and tied a bow on. Lastly I added a button with some Jute!

I love making quick and easy cards once in awhile, as they are nice to have for that last minute gift giving!!

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!
Hugs to all,
Cheryl

CottageCutz Birthday Party Bear


Hello everyone, today I wanted to share with you a Birthday Surprise card I made for the Scrapping Cottage using the Darling "Birthday CottageCutz" Dies. LOVE this release, as all the dies are absolutely darling and perfect for cards,mini albums, and scrapbook pages.

On my card here, I used the Darling CottageCutz Birthday Party Bear , and colored him and everything else with copics. I did add some liquid glitter glue to the cupcake, present, and balloon. I also used the CottageCutz Birthday Candle Border, and glittered it up too. Its behind the bear and his gift,cupcake,and flower pot.

Next I used some Birthday Design Paper, and then layered the border across the center of my card with the CottageCutz Birthday Border. The CottageCutz Surprise was cut in white, and then colored with copics to match the dp. 

Here are the CottageCutz Dies I used:

CottageCutz "Sweet Petites" Owl

Hello Friends, and Happy Sunday to all!
Today I'm sharing a 5 x 5 card I made using the CottageCutz Petites Release. 

My card Measures 5" x 5"
I used the CottageCutz sweet Petite Owl, and the Butterfly with flowers. I cut the own out in white, and then in green, so I could dust him, and then use the green branch from the 2nd owl that I cut in green. Then I cut out the Butterfly with flowers in green & Orange. I wanted my butterfly to be orange, I dusted that too, and then added some glitter glue in red,orange,brown and a light orange.

I used some design Paper I had picked up for super cheap, and then used seam binding from RRR for my bow!


Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!

Christmas Joy/Page 2 of Mini Album

Hello everyone, Cheryl here with Page 2 of a Christmas Mini I'm currently working on for a Christmas Gift.
On this page I used some more of the Beautiful Really Reasonable Ribbon that is in this months Ribbon Kit, LOVE all the Christmas ribbons and lace in this months kit.

I used ribbon for the tag pulls, and also made bows for all the tags. There are 2 tags to the left, that pull out for photo's, and 1 tag at the bottom for more photo's, all have bows, and ribbon pulls on them.

Next I added some of the beautiful lace to the left bottom corner, and then the right upper corner. In the photo below, you will see some of the green delicate stitched satin, used as tag pulls on both of the tags on the inside.

I love how this 2nd page turned out for my mini, its been a long time since I've made a Christmas Mini, so I'm super excited to be working on this one.

Thank you for stopping by, and have a super wonderful day!
Hugs to all,
Cheryl

You should have arrived from Linsey's Blog ;if not you will surely want to start at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog, to be sure not to miss anything.

So for my card today I received this BEAUTIFUL Heartfelt Creations Paper Stack from Heartfelt Creations to use today, and absolutely LOVE their design paper, its absolutely Gorgeous! To view all their design paper stacks please click HERE!

I chose the Christmas design out of this stack, as I thought it would go perfect with their Ornament stamp. I stamp the stamp in Black Memento Ink, and then cut it out using their matching die cut. Next I colored it with 2 different shades of copic markers, and then used HC White Gala Glitz. The Merry Christmas Stamp came from another one of their past releases and is also stamped in Memento black ink. The branches are a MS punch, and I did punch out some of the same dp to use as part of a Christmas Tree Branch. 
The Pink Beautiful Ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon as is the Delicate Stitch Pearl Pink Satin Ribbon. I Absolutely LOVE this ribbon, and should have bought many rolls of it. Its super easy to use for Bows, and even Lil' tiny bows as well. I also used Really Reasonable Ribbons Lace called "Melissa" to run down the left side of my card. The buttons, and Hemp are also from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and I love using the Hemp to make the buttons look like they are sewn on. Lastly I added my Favorite RRR flower, the Sweetheart Blossoms, I should own stock in these babies........LOL I LOVE them!!! I seem to use them on everything, and they are the perfect size.
