Balloon Bouquet


Hello everyone!
Today's card is another super fast and easy card I made for the Scrapping Cottage using the darling CottageCutz Balloon Bouquet! This is one of the many DARLING CottageCutz Dies from the "Birthday" Release!

Card Measures 2 1/2" x 6"
Super fast and easy to make! I cut the card stock at 5" x 6 then scored on the 5" side at the 2 1/2" mark. I rounded the corners once scored and folded using a 1/2" corner rounder. Next I cut the card stock at 2 1/4" x 5 3/4" and rounded the one side. I did distress the card stock using distress ink and a duster. 
Next I cut the CottageCutz Balloon Bouquet with blue card stock, and then added glitter glue to the balloons. set aside to dry, unless you do embossing powder and heat dry, that would be faster.
I then added my ribbon and bow, and lastly the pearl half backs to the bottom.

CottageCutz Die Used:

Ribbon used is from Really Reasonable Ribbon and is a Gingham print!


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

Shabby Chic Gift Card Holder

Hello everyone, and Happy Sunday to all!\

So first I did cut out the CottageCutz Gift Card Holder using some pretty design paper, and then distressed it. Next I added some lace, and then a piece of a white doily, that I distressed. Next I cut out the Birthday Wishes Doily in pink, and distressed it as well. I only used a part of it, as I wanted it as the background for the flap of my gift Card Holder. The CottageCutz Fancy Present, and Tag Topper are both distressed as well, and then I added some Viva Pearl dots to both of them.

Here is a photo of the inside.
Please click on the photo's to take you directly to each CottageCutz die.
 The little bows, and big bow is made with RRR Seam Binding. Love the look of seam binding, and its very shabby chic! I added a button, and some pearls to the bows.
I hope you enjoyed my post for today! Thank you for stopping by and have a lovely day!

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.

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.
