Hello everyone!
Today I'm sharing a card designed for Victorine Originals Summer Colors Challenge. I was going to post this tomorrow, but wanted to share with everyone today.

On my card I used the super SWEET Double Take Ice Cream stamp from Victorine Originals , to find this set in the story just type in Ice cream and search. It will come up :) for some reason I am not able to link directly to the stamp, so hope that helps :)

I colored my image with copics, and then cut each piece out. Next I added some Angel Dust(Creative Inspiration Paints), to the icecream. The sentiment is another from Victorine Originals. Love all the different sentiments they have to choose from.

The DP is AC and I thought it was a Perfect fit for this card :) 
I LOVE the NEW CottageCutz Border dies from the Scrapping Cottage, they are all so beautiful!!!! Lastly my pretty DOTS ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon :)

If you have time, hope you will join us at Victorine Originals Challenge #64 Summer Colors for some fun!!!

Happy New Baby

Hello everyone!
Today's card was designed for The Scrapping Cottage & Really Reasonable Ribbon. For my Sweet Baby card I used CottageCutz Baby Buggy , CottageCutz Grass Border, and Scalloped Doily.The Ribbon I used is the Beautiful Pink Gingham Print from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I absolutely LOVE making baby cards, they are sooo sweet and super fun to make. So for the Baby Buggy I used some shimmer card stock, and embossed it with dots. Next I cut the grass border and layered it a few times, so it would look like the buggy is traveling through grass. All this is layered on the beautiful CottageCutz Scalloped Doily!

My tag is the CottageCutz Love Tag,and stamped with a Stampin Up! sentiment, and I did airbrush it with copics.

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!

Sweet Daisy With Love

Hello everyone, and Happy Wednesday to all!!!
Today's card was created for the Scrapping Cottage using the Beautiful Dakota & Daisy CottageCutz die , and CottageCutz Bella Spring Tree

I ended up using just Daisy from this die cut, and she was cut using white card stock, then colored with copics. Next I cut out the CottageCutz Bella Spring Tree with a green card stock, and turned it sideways and placed Daisy and her butterfly on top. I love the look, and think its a little different than just using it as a tree. LOVE all the swirls on it :)

The dp, is Echo Park/Eclectic Paper pack and the ribbon is vintage. I added these little paper circle things that were sent to me years ago. Lastly I added a button.

CottageCutz "Thank you very much"

Hello everyone, I wanted to share an extra card I posted for CottageCutz on their blog , but didn't get to post on my blog due to being away on vacation.

Today's card was designed using the beautiful CottageCutz Garden Bird Branch, and the Blossom Branch dies from The Scrapping Cottage.
The Garden bird branch was cut 2 different times in a green dp, and a yellow dp. I then cut the birds out and placed them on the branch. As for the flowers those are colored with copics and then glued on.

The tag for the sentiment is cut with CottageCutz Doily Mini, then I punched out a circle to stamp the sentiment on and layer on top of the Mini Doily.

I love these beautiful dies, as you can do sooo much with them. To finish off the card I added a couple of bows with button centers. 

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!
