Hello everyone today I'm sharing my card made for The Scrapping Cottage using the New Vintage Release. I also designed my card for Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge.

It's been such a long time since Iv'e been able to participate in SCS challenges, that I thought I should give it a try. I LOVE doing the Sketch Challenge and have missed it dearly.

Now for my card I used CottageCutz Elegant Hat Box Die I cut all pieces with white card stock, and then airbrushed the hat box with copic marker. I used copics to color the flowers,leaves,black hat, and feather. For the pearls, and dots, I used Viva Pearl Pens. All flower centers have half back pearls glued on.

I used Really Reasonable Ribbon for the pieces up at the top. Its the Black Satin Double Ruffled Edge Ribbon. Next I added Black buttons, and the flowers for the centers of all buttons.

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!!!

CottageCutz/CottageVille -Shabby Chic Cottage

Hello Friends!!!

Today I'm sharing the Inside Cover page of my album. I love the way this one turned out, I used several CottageCutz Dies on this page. and used different techniques

So for my CottageCutz Sweet Sign I used CIP's Black Embossing powder to make the sign shinny , and I LOVE the look it gave it. I also did the SWEET in heat embossing as well.

Next for the CottageCutz Mini Dress Form I used Flower Soft on the top and then colored the bottom green to make it look like a flower tree outside of the house.

For the MINI POODLE I dusted her in pink and black distress inks, and then did a clear embossing powder over her. Embossing Powders can be found here at Creative Inspiration Paints

HOUSE- is CottageCutz CottageVille /Santa's Retreat.LOVE that you can use these all year round, and make them anything you want. I made my a Shabby Chic Cottage!!

Greenery is CottageCutz Ivy , and Then Greenery Dies

All of the scalloped Borders on the bottom 
of the layers are the CottageCutz Oval Doily & Frame , cut and layered. Its nice to be able to use this die in a different way.

Lastly I added room for photo's on the 3 tags , 2 pull out the sides, and the middle one that is behind the Cottage

I used Really Reasonable Ribbon for my blow. the Dove is a button. and all Embossing Powders can be found at Creative Inspiration Paints.

Buttons & Bows

Hello everyone, today I'm sharing PAGE #3 of the Mini Album I'm working on. For this page I used Really Reasonable Ribbons, Lace,Seam Binding, and buttons. I also used the Beautiful Elegant Purses from CottageCutz.

I really LOVE how this album is turning out, and just got more DP's in the mail to work on another for myself. 

The CottageCutz Purses are from the NEW CottageCutz Vintage Release from The Scrapping Cottage. I used 2 of the purses on this page. 

I also made Button Flowers for this page, and thought they tied in well. The ribbon is RRR Black Satin Dots, and Pink Seam binding.

For the BIG PINK bows I used Pink Silky Crush Ribbon, and Black Crocheted Lace, all from Really Reasonable Ribbon. The pocket is perfect for a photo, and there is room for writing on the back, or another photo.

I added some different types of feathers to this as well. And some Pearl strands, they are sticky, but I hot glued them on.

Thank you for looking and cant wait to share more of my Mini Album with you!!!

For the Top part of the tag I used:
