Bluebird "Flying high"

Hello everyone and Happy Sunday to all! 
  Today I wanted to share a sweet CottageCutz Bluebird card. Love this sweet bird and the beautiful branch it comes with. My pieces are all cut from white card stock and then colored with copics on the bird,branch,and flowers. For the tag and the doily I dusted them with distressed inks.

For the layers I used the same dp for each layer, and then added some sewing. Next I added some pretty Really Reasonable Ribbon Juliet Natural Crocheted Lace to the border, and Really Reasonable Ribbon textured 2 toned blue and white to the tag. Lastly I did add some gems to the bottom of my card, and a gem butterfly to the tag.

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!!

Springtime Strawberries

Hello everyone, today's card was designed for Creative Inspiration Paints using the beautiful shimmery paints on the Strawberries,vines, and frame.

I used CIP's Sage,winter Frost, and Rose quartz for my card today. I absolutely love how these paints shimmer. They really do add beauty to all your projects. 

1st I had colored then accented with the CIP's on my CottageCutz Strawberries & Vines. Next I thought it would be a good idea to paint the Postage frame where the stamped sentiment is, however I should have sponged it before adding my pieces. Next time I will do it a little different then I did this time around.

CottageCutz Quackers & Quack Notepad w/Pencil/video

Today's Post is a Notepad I created.
 I used the SWEET CottageCutz Quackers & Quack and the Matching CottageCutz Spring Showers Border. I love these DARLING dies!!! I cut Quackers & Quack out with Yellow card stock, then distressed them with yellow ink. Next I colored their other pieces with Orange, and Yellow copics. Glued to together and then used a pen for their eyes. 

For the Border-
I cut the border out in white. Then colored each item with copics except for the umbrella and the boots. Those I used  the same coordinating design paper and cut them out. Love the look of the border. Next I used Viva Pearl Pen to add the white dots.

These New CottageCutz can be found in the Spring Showers Release

For the inside I added a notepad, and a pencil. This would be great to keep on a desk, or even your work area to write down notes, or reminders.

I used the CottageCutz Oval & Doily Die for the sentiment , and dusted the edges with ink. For under the border, I added some Vintage Lace. Lastly I added a Bow using Really Reasonable Ribbon Light Navy Satin, and then some buttons.The stamp is a SU!
