Happy Birthday w/Gracie Bunny

Hello everyone, Today I wanted to share Darling Gracie Bunny Giving Thanks. She is super Cute and has to be my favorite bunny from the Spring Release. Isn't she just DARLING??!!!! 

For my card today, I started by layering the CottageCutz Fancy Floral Corner #1 (2 pieces), and then layered the border piece with dp on top of those. Next I used the CottageCutz Oval Doily & Frame Die to have a place for Gracie bunny, so she could be the Center of attention :) hehehe

CottageCutz Gracie Bunny Giving Thanks was cut in white, and then dusted with distress inks, and also with copics. I added a tag, to write Happy Birthday on, since I will be using this card for an upcoming birthday :)
 For embellishments, I used sewing, and Seam Binding for my embellishments.

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

TLC530 Follow Your Heart

Hello everyone, today's card was designed for the TLC530 Challenge to line it up on SplitCoaststampers! Well I have to say this was a little bit of a challenge, as my lines are a little off, but that's ok, I still had a blast joining todays super fun challenge! Thank you Jenn :)

 For my card I used the CottageCutz 
New Victorian Release. For the frame I used to CottageCutz Victorian Frame and cut it out in black card stock, next I used the CC Flourish Vine, and the CottageCutz Fancy Victorian Butterfly.

My Butterfly I airbrushed it, I absolutely LOVE airbrushing, its so fun, and relaxing :) I used 3 copic colors for this.

For the Line Up! I did my lines with the American Crafts Taffy Pen, and I guess you could say they are a little squiggly .....hehehehe but hey they are mine so I guess that is ok, they are unique to me :)

 Design Paper is from BoBunny! its the Love Letters Collection and Hello Sunshine. I am trying to use up some of my 6 x 6 paper pads that tend to be on the forgotten list.....hehehehehe

Sentiment-StampinUp! Whimsical Words Set

Ribbon- is from Really Reasonable Ribbon and is the Seam Binding! Love Bonnies Seam binding she carries!

Victorian Lady

Hello everyone, and Happy Tuesday to all!

Today's card features the Victorian Release. LOVE this release and all the dies that come in this collection. On my card today I used the CottageCutz Victorian Lady, Ornate Fence , Flourish Vine, and the largest part of the Victorian Frame. The Little flowers are from the CottageCutz Tree of Nature die. Card was entered into Splitcoaststampers Challenge F4A269.

The Victorian Lady was colored with copics, and then I added some Viva Pearl Pen dots to the dress and her umbrella.  The Victorian frame , works perfect to frame the circle layer I used. Love the look! I also cut the Ornate Fence in white and added the Flourish Vine to it, along with some flowers that I cut out using the CottageCutz Tree of Nature die.. I love the small flowers from this die, they work perfect for embellishing a lot of the CottageCutz Greenery.

CottageCutz Dies Used: All are linked to the Scrapping Cottage Store, just click on each photo and it will take you to the item.
 Lastly I used a super old stamp from The Greeting Farm, and punched it out with SU! punches. The dp is from DCWV. I added some Really Reasonable Ribbon seam binding and sewing to complete my card. Love the way it turned out, and I had a lot of fun making this card!

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!

CottageCutz Sweet Spring Time Bunnies

Hello everyone, and Happy Thursday to all! Today I wanted to share with you all the CottageCutz Spring Scene 2 die. I love this sweet bunny die, they are absolutely darling.

I cut them out using design paper in a blue polka dot pattern. Kept it super simple, and just layered it on a swirl white card stock. For the frame under it, i used CottageCutz Oval Doily & Frame Die, and just cut it in half to place one piece at the bottom and the other at the top.

The Border around the next layer is a punch around the page. and then below that is the back side of the Polka Dot design paper, its a chevron print, from American Crafts

Lastly I added some half backed dots in white to embellish my card, these are from American Crafts

This was a super simple card to make, as there is no sewing, and really no embellishments.
