There's a Scare in the Air!

Hello! Today I'm sharing a Halloween card over on the Scrapping Cottage blog for my design team day.  All of the products used on my card are part of the huge Labor Day sale going on in the store

I used the Lil' Bluebird Designs Home Sweet Home stamp and die set for my card and changed it up to create a Halloween theme.  I pulled out my Distress Inks to watercolor all of the stamped images.  I cut out a couple of grass strips from the Spring Grass die set.
The film strip and stars are from the Film Strip Slimline die set.  I used some Oxide Inks to ink blend the rectangles by masking off my card base.
Once I adhered the film strip onto the background, I inserted the grass along the bottom edge of each of the frames.  The little Halloween houses were placed along the grass.
I continued to build the spooky but cute scene by adding the remaining colored images.
To complete the Halloween scene, the little stars were scattered inside each of the frames.
The final touch on my card was a Halloween themed sentiment from one of the stamp sets in my stash.
Here are the products used on my card:

Hello!  Today I'm sharing a card over on the Scrapping Cottage blog.  My card features one of the Sentiments with Shadow die sets which is the newest die release from Cottage Cutz. The whimsical font on these sentiments is so super cute.  I also used one of the Lil' Bluebird Designs stamp and die sets and a die set from the last Slimline die release.  Currently, all of these releases are on sale!

I used card stock to cut out the Honeycomb Background Slimline and the Sweet w/Shadow sentiment.  The bees and trails are from the Love Bugs set.  The bees were watercolored with ink.
The honeycomb panel was placed on a white card base. I ended up die cutting a few honeycombs with the slimline die and adhered the negative pieces for a pop of color.
Next, the bee trails were affixed to my card base.  The sentiment was adhered on the bottom portion of my card.
The adorable bees were added near the trails.  I used some Wink of Stella on their wings for a sparkly affect.
The finished card is one that can be stashed away in the all-occasion pile for a special event!

Hello!  Today I'm sharing a festive card over on the Scrapping Cottage blog.  My card features one of the die sets from the brand new Sentiments with Shadow die release.  There are 12 new sentiment dies and each has a shadow feature.  They are perfect for everyday cards and are currently on sale too!

I cut out the adorable llama from the Lil' Bluebird Designs Llama Love stamp and die set. I used my Distress Inks and watercolor pencils to color everything.  The sentiment is from the new Wishes w/Shadow die set.  I cut out an extra shadow piece.
This festive paper is from my stash and I used the Cottage Cutz Oval set to cut out the oval in the center of my card.  I placed a hot pink panel behind the oval and added it onto an A2 card base.
The llama was centered inside the oval as the focal point of my celebratory card.
Next, I adhered some pop dots between the 2 shadow layers of the sentiment and adhered it onto my card.  The pop dots provide some dimension to the whimsical sentiment.
A few enamel dots were sprinkled around the llama as the finishing touch on my card.

Birthday Wishes!

Hello!  I'm back over on the Scrapping Cottage blog for my design team day!  For today's card I went with a CAS (clean and simple) design with a pop of color for the background.

The images were stamped with the Lil' Bluebird Designs Happy Birthday stamp set and cut out with the die set.  I colored the images with some bright and cheery distress inks and a watercolor brush.
The panels for my card base were cut with the Cottage Cutz (retired) Stitched Wide Rectangle Frame and Stitched Rectangle Set.
Once I stamped the sentiment on my card panel, I layered the 2 panels on a standard A2 card base which was inked on the edges to coordinate with my stamped images.
The banner was stretched across the top of my card for a fun and festive look on my card.
Next, the 3 presents and gift bag were lined up horizontally in the center of my card.
For a finishing touch, I added a couple of matte enamel dots amongst the presents.

Sea You Soon!

Hello and Happy Monday!  Today I'm sharing an underwater card over on the Scrapping Cottage. Today's card features both Cottage Cutz dies and Lil' Bluebird Designs products.

The background for my card was created with the Waves and Nested Stitched Rectangles slimline die sets.  I used a variety of Oxide Ink colors to create the sand and waves on my card.  The waves and sand were splattered with some water and the sand was also splattered with some paint.  I watercolored the images from the Under the Sea stamp set and used the die set to cut them out.  The images were nestled amongst the waves.  The bubbles and sentiment were heat embossed directly on my card.

What's Cookin?

Hello!  Today I'm sharing a card over on the Scrapping Cottage blog.  My card features one of the Lil' Bluebird Designs stamp and die sets which is a new brand under Cottage Cutz! The new stamp and die sets are all currently on sale.  I'm also using one of the latest Slimline dies on my card.

My card base is cut from the Circle Windows Slimline die set in white card stock.  I also used the Lil' Bluebird Designs BBQ Time stamp and die set.  The stamped images were colored with my Distress Inks and a watercolor brush.
I found the perfect plaid style paper in my stash so I adhered it inside the windows of my card.  My card panel was added on a red card base for a pop of color.  I rounded the corners with my Fiskars Corner Rounder.
To build my card, I affixed the barbecue grill and a couple of the bees inside the first window.
Next, I placed the remaining stamped images in the other two windows leaving enough room for my sentiment.
The sentiment was placed in the center of the middle window finishing off my summer themed card.
