Wishing You a Cup of Cheer!

Hello!  Today I have a sweet card to share over on the Scrapping Cottage blog for my design team post.  I wanted to create a card that can be used as an all occasion card especially during the winter season!
The Hot Drink Cup and Mr. Snuggles die sets are so versatile that they can be used together or separately. I also used the Nested Stitched Eyelet Oval die set for my card.  The tiny heart was left over on my craft desk from one of my Christmas projects so I incorporated it into my card.
I went with a kraft theme for my card base which coordinated perfectly with Mr. Snuggles and his coffee cup.  I selected a strip of blue card stock to add to my card.
All of the pieces were layered and adhered to my card base.  The die cut oval topped off my card.
Mr. Snuggles and his coffee cup was adhered inside the oval leaving enough room for the sentiment tag underneath.
A triple bow made with some jute twine was the perfect finishing accent on this cheery card.
Here are the dies used on my card, available in the store:

Feel Better Soon

Hello!  Today I'm sharing this "get well" card over on the Scrapping Cottage blog.  Since we are in the middle of winter and flu season, this card is perfect for cheering up anyone who is under the weather.
I went with an embossed background for my card and then cut out my pieces from the Ouch With Tooth and the Chicken Noodle Soup die sets.  The napkin is triangle cut with my paper trimmer.
Once I matted the embossed card stock on a blue background, I added the triangle napkin at the base of my card.
Next, each of the die cuts were adhered on top of the napkin with the extra spoon resting on top.
The "feel better soon" sentiment was stretched along the top of my card fitting perfectly across the background.

Holiday Wishes & Gingerbread Kisses

Hello!  Today I'm sharing a sweet card over on the Scrapping Cottage blog for my design team post. I have one last card to share from the Christmas holiday created with the adorable gingerbread couple from the Gingerbread Baking Set.
The couple was die cut in card stock along with 4 frames: Stitched Wide Rectangle, Nested Stitched Scallop Rectangle, Stitched Rectangle and the Rectangle set.
The sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms (retired) Winter Wishes stamp set.  I punched holes on each side of the sentiment tag and tied it some Candy Cane Trendy Twine.
The frames were layered together and adhered to the card base. The different sized frames nested inside one another perfectly.
The first gingerbread was angled a bit and placed in the left hand corner of my card directly under the sentiment.
The second gingerbread was adhered directly opposite of the first which completed this festive card.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!  I have a fun card to share on this New Year's Day over on the Scrapping Cottage blog created with the new Arctic Animals die release.  I combined several of the new dies on one card!
I wanted to create a snowy scene for the sweet Arctic Animals so I went with a blue and gray theme. The fun sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms (retired) Farm Fresh stamp set which was perfect for my card.
I shaded all of my die cuts with some Oxide Inks and also used the inks for the two hand cut pieces at the bottom of my card base.
The scene was built with the hand cut hills and Snowy Mountains.  Next, the Arctic Snowy Trees were tucked in behind the mountains.
The puffin from the Arctic Birds set was placed in front of the mountains and the Baby Walrus was added on the left hand side of my card.  The husky is from the Husky w/Sled die set.
The Arctic Baby Fox was tucked in next to the husky and the penguin from the Arctic Penguins & Igloo die set.
My card was finished off with the sentiment flag which was trimmed to fit in the upper right hand corner.
Here are the die sets used on my card, available in the store:

Merry Christmas

Hello!  Today I have a Christmas card to share over on the Scrapping Cottage blog.  I went with a bright and cheery theme with the sweet moose and gnomes on my card.  It was the perfect card to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!
I used the Cottage Cutz Moose Pulling Gnomes Sled and the Merry Christmas die sets.  I used my Oxide Inks to shade all of the die cuts and then layered the sentiment on a hand cut panel.
For my card base, I went a CAS design and embossed the white card stock with the Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder.
I layered the embossed paper on top of the snowflake paper to create my card base.  The sentiment panel was angled on the background of my card.
The sled was layered above the sentiment as if the moose was pulling the adorable gnomes down hill.
To finish off my card, I wrapped the top edge with some Cranberry Trendy Twine and tied it together.
Here are the dies used on my card, available in the store:

Hoping You'll be Back in the Swim of Things Soon!

Hello!  Today I'm sharing this card over on the Scrapping Cottage for my design team day created with the new Arctic Animals die release which is currently on sale!
I cut out the whale from the Arctic Whale & Narwhal die set and the seal from the Baby Seals die set.  The sliced oval is from the Pierced Oval Set.  The waves are punched from the Fiskar's Boundary Waters border punch.
I used some Oxide Ink for the background of my card and for the borders and then splattered everything with some water.
I stamped a sentiment from the Scrappy Moms (retired) Beach Bums stamp set on my card base and then added the oval and borders along the bottom edge.
The seal was placed on the center of the oval to mimic a mound of sand with the whale jumping above the waves.
A few sequins were scattered above the whale as a finishing accent on my card

Happy Holidays

Hello!  Today is my design team day over on the Scrapping Cottage blog and I'm sharing this adorable Christmas card.  This sweet bird sitting on the snowy branch is the cutest!
The cardinal is from the Jolly Cardinal die set and inked with my Oxide Inks.  I cut out a circle from the Circle Set and a doily from the Nested Stitched Doily Set.  The sentiment is from the Happy Holidays die set which was adhered on a flag from the Retro Tag Toppers die set.
I went with a Christmas plaid background for my card base and layered in with the doily and circle cuts.
The cardinal was centered inside the layered doily.  I placed the first sentiment flag directly above the doily.
The second flag was added to the bottom edge of my card finishing off the curved sentiment design.
