Easter Egg Hunt

Hello!  Today, I'm showcasing a card over on the Scrapping Cottage blog with the new Spring dies.  I absolutely adore these sweet bunnies, they are the cutest!
This Easter card was created with the Easter Egg Hunt die set.  The scene came together beautifully with some soft inking of the die cuts.  The sweet bunnies were nestled on the Spring Grass die cut.  A few extra tulips were sprinkled on the grass as embellishments.  I added a couple of bows to the bunnies as a fun element.  My scene was finished off with the sun and clouds from the new Spring Frogs set.
Here are the dies used on my card, available in the store:

Wishing You A Basketfull of Goodies

Hello!  Today I have card to share over on the Scrapping Cottage blog created with the new Spring die release.  The die showcased on my card has an incredible amount of detail with all of its fun elements.
This card was created with the Basket of Eggs die set.  Some inking on the card elements gives off a rustic flair.  The Stitched Rectangle frames the Easter Basket as the focal point of this card.  The hand cut, half circle is the perfect back drop for this card.  The patterns and colors compliment the Easter basket creating the perfect layout for displaying the Basket of Eggs.  The sweet sentiment was the finishing touch on this card.

Happy Birthday

Hello!  Today I'm sharing a birthday card over on the Scrapping Cottage blog created with the new Spring dies.  In my family we have several birthdays over the next few months so I converted the sweet Carrot Farmer Truck to a farm truck loaded with flowers from the new Spring Blooms die set.
I found some bright and cheery papers in my stash and used them to create my card base that coordinated perfectly.
Next, I cut out the truck and added the flowers to the back.  I used the Route 66 sign pieces for the sentiment and for an embellishment.  The card panel is from the Stitched Rectangle set and the circle is from the Circle set.
The card panel and circle were adhered on top of my card base.  The truck was nestled inside the circle.
My first embellishment was placed at the top of the panel leaving enough room for the sentiment arrow.
Once I added the arrow, a set of coordinating enamel dots were placed vertically along the edge of the card panel.  The embellishments were the perfect finishing accents on this fun and festive card.

You Are My Honey

Hello! Today I'm sharing this adorable card over on the Scrapping Cottage blog for my design team post. My card was created with the Busy Bee die from the new release of Spring dies which are currently on sale.
This card was inspired by a selection of fun papers in my stash.  Once I selected my papers I went with a sweet card which can be used for Valentine's Day or as an anniversary card.
The Busy Bee die was used for the 2 bees and then I went with a few of the basic dies (Nested Stitched Scallop Rectangle, Nested Stitched Scallop Circle and Stitched Circle) for my card background.
In preparation of my card pieces, I stamped the sentiment inside the circle.  I also hand cut a little flag to use as an embellishment on my card.
I layered a solid black card base with the patterned paper background.  Next I added the 2 pieces cut with the Nested Stitched Scallop Rectangle die set on top.
The white circle was nested inside the scallop circle and the set of circles were adhered on my card base.
I popped up the bees on some foam dots for added dimension.  The two bees surrounded the sentiment circle and the flag was added as a finishing touch.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Hello!  It's my design team day over on the Scrapping Cottage blog.  I'm excited to share a card created with the new Spring Release dies.  These dies are not only ideal for those Spring and Easter creations but also perfect for Valentine's.
I cut out the newly released Bunny Truck for my card and added some hearts to the back of the truck. The hearts are from the Party Favors die set.  The truck and hearts were inked up with some Oxide Inks.  I used the Nested Stitched Eyelet Rectangle Set for my card panel.
I prepared my panel by stamping it with a sentiment from the Scrappy Moms (retired) Love Notes stamp set.  I also added some Peppermint Icicle Trendy Twine as an embellishment.
I used the colors from the truck as inspiration for the papers on the background of my card.  The center piece was punched with the Fiskars Scalloped Sentiment punch.  The rectangle panel was adhered on top.
To finish off my Valentine's card, the truck was placed in the center of the panel as the focal point.
