Hello Sunshine

Hello!  Today I'm sharing this card for my design team post over on the Scrapping Cottage blog.  I'm delighted with the new Cottage Cutz Gardening die release.  All of the blooms in this release are perfect for those springtime creations.
I used the Gardening Tomte and the Flower Power Tomte die sets for my card.  All of the flowers inspired the bright and cheery color combination for my die cuts.
I chose a neutral background for my card base to offset all of the colors and patterns I incorporated into my die cuts.  A tiny stamped sentiment on a hand cut flag was perfect for my card.
Once I put together my card base, I adhered the die cut elements one-by-one creating the whimsical scene.
The flowers were placed on the two edges of my card.  The tiny birdhouse was nestled in the center. The little gardening elements are so cute and work great as embellishments on my card.
The sentiment flag was placed in the upper left corner of my card as the final finishing accent.
 Here are the die sets used on my card, available in the store:

Meow Are You?

Hello!  I have a sweet card to share for my design team post over on the Scrapping Cottage blog.  There's a brand new die release with 19 new dies as part of the Gardening Bundle which are currently on sale!
I used the Garden Cat w/Wagon and the Gardening Hat & Gloves at the focal point of my card.  I also inked up a die cut circle from the Double Stitched Oval Set.  The yellow gingham paper is from my stash and provides a cheery background for my card.
I used a combination of inks and card stock for my die cut pieces.  I found the perfect sentiment in my stamp collection from the Scrappy Moms (retired) Party Animals stamp set.
I created my card by layering the oval on top of the gingham card base.  The Garden Cat w/Wagon was nestled inside the oval.
The Gardening Hat was added as an embellishment.  The sentiment strip was snipped off into a flag and adhered as the finishing accent on my card.

It's your Birthday - Paint the Town!

Hello!  Today I have a bright and cheery card to share over on the Scrapping Cottage for my design team post.  I used one of the intricate dies from the Spring die release.
I cut out the largest butterfly from the Springtime Butterflies die set and opted to leave all of the negative space pieces intact.  The butterfly was inked up with some Oxide Inks.  The doily is from the Nested Stitched Doily Set.
I used a rainbow of Oxide Inks to create the background for my card.  Once the ink was dry, I splattered it with some water.
I waited for the water to dry and then splattered the card panel with some white paint.  Next, I embossed it with a butterfly embossing folder.
The doily was adhered in the center of my card base breaking up the rainbow background.  The white doily also helps to bring out the paint splatters.
The butterfly was nestled inside the doily.  A heat embossed sentiment on some vellum was the finishing touch on my card.

Happy Easter Blessings

Hello!  Today I'm back over on the Scrapping Cottage for my design team post.  I have an Easter card to share created with a couple of irresistible bunnies from the Spring die release.
I cut out the bunnies from the Spring Parade and Juggling Spring Bunny die sets using kraft card stock. The grass border is from the Spring Grass die set.  An Easter sentiment was stamped on some basic white card stock.
The papers I selected are the perfect Spring themed patterns.  I used the Circle Set die to cut out 2 circles on the top layer of my card base.  A smaller circle from the same die set was used to cut out the sentiment and inked on the edges.  The grass border was slightly trimmed for a better fit on my card.
To build my card, the 2 patterned papers were adhered on a solid card background.  The grass border was laid along the bottom edge of my card.
Next, each of the bunnies were nestled inside the circle cut outs creating a whimsical design.
My card was finished by adding the Easter sentiment circle in the upper corner of my card.
Here are the die sets used on my card, available in the store:

Some Bunny Loves You

Hello!  Today I have a CAS card to share over on the Scrapping Cottage blog for my design team post.  The Spring dies are perfect for the upcoming Easter holiday!
I cut out these adorable bunnies using the Cottage Cutz Bunny Backsides die set and inked them in different colors using my Oxide Inks.
I chose a simple chevron paper for the background and created the rows of bunnies in sets of three.
As I adhered the bunnies, I ensured that no 2 colors or shapes were next to each other.  This gives the simple card a more appealing design.
Once my bunnies were adhered on my card, I stamped a sentiment from the Scrappy Moms "The Charmed Life" (retired) stamp set on a hand cut flag and layered it over one of the bunnies.
Here is the die set used on my card available in the store:
