Hang In There

Hello!  I'm sharing another for the Cottage Cutz Black Friday die release.  The design team members have been showcasing a variety of cards over the last few days on the Scrapping Cottage blog with this amazing new die release!

This card was created with the Safari Monkey die set.  The Oval Set and the Nested Scallop Oval Set were used to slice out the oval and to create the delicate frame nestled inside the chevron background.  A bit of ink blending highlights the sweet monkey hanging from the branch.  The finishing touch is the sentiment which is a fun play on words.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Safari

Hello!  Today I'm participating in the Black Friday die release over on the Scrapping Cottage blog.  This die release includes 16 new "Safari" themed die sets which are all amazing!  They are on sale in the store with the Black Friday specials!

This birthday card features the Safari Cruiser w/Banner and the Savana die sets.  The fluffy clouds and inked card base provides the perfect backdrop for the safari scene.  The jeep sits above a rocky road ready for its next journey.  The large tree is towering above along with several birds flying into the sky.  The scene is complete with the safari banner floating amongst the clouds.

Sweet Christmas

Hello!  Today I have a card to share over on the Scrapping Cottage blog.  For this card, I worked with the Sweet as a Christmas Cookie die set from the Christmas Part 3 die release.  It's just one of the fabulous die sets from the Christmas die releases which are currently on sale.

I used glittered card stock for some of my die cut pieces and some Stickles for the solid card stock pieces. The sparkle and shine adds a fun element to the cookies.  I also cut out a circle from patterned card stock and a Nested Stitched Scallop Circle from white card stock.
All of the papers are from my stash of Christmas themed card stock.  The colors of the striped paper were the inspiration for my die cut pieces.
Once I layered the striped paper on my card base, I added the red strip of card stock to break up the stripes. The double circles were affixed on top.
The next step in my card design process was to add the sentiment inside the circle.  The whimsical font makes for a fun focal point on my card.
A row of cookies was adhered below the sentiment inside the circle filling in all of the empty space.
The remainder of the cookies and rolling pin were added in the remaining empty space inside of the circle.
The finished card is perfect for tucking in with some yummy home baked treats during the upcoming holiday season!
Here are the die sets used on my card, available in the store:

Holiday Deliciousness

Hello!  I have another holiday card to share today over on the Scrapping Cottage blog.  There are 3 Christmas die releases in the store with so many amazing die sets.  This card is full of Christmas cheer!

I started by cutting all of the pieces to make the adorable Gingerbread Baker using card stock. The pieces were easy to put together.  I love how he's sitting on a rolling pin with the spoon in his hand!

I found the snowflake pattern kraft card stock in my stash.  I used an oval die cut to add some white ink to the card panel.  I simply held the oval in place and inked all the way around the inside of the oval.

The card base was created with layers of kraft and white card stock and then finished off with the pattered snowflake paper.


I affixed the Gingerbread Baker to the center of my card base. The soft inked oval in the background keeps the die cuts from blending into the background.

The sentiment is from the APB - This is December #2 stamp set which was heat embossed on some red card stock for a pop of color.  The cheery sentiment is definitely a fun addition!

The kraft, red and white gives this card a warm and cozy feel to it.  It's one of my favorite color combinations for holiday cards!

Here is the die set I used on my card available in the store:

Sweet Christmas Wishes

Hello!  I have a slime line Christmas card to share over on the Scrapping Cottage blog.  Today's card features several of the new dies from the 3 Christmas die releases in the store.  

I selected some yummy treats to showcase on my card.  The die sets I used for the cupcakes include: Upside Down Santa Cupcake, Reindeer Christmas Cupcake, Gnome Cupcake and Snowman Christmas Cupcake. All of the pieces were cut from card stock, pieced together and popped up on card stock for some dimension.  I added a tiny bit of Stickles to a few of the die cut pieces.
The tiny cupcakes and gingerbreads are from the Baking Spirits Bright die set.  They were used as embellishments to highlight the heat embossed sentiment.  The sweet treats on this card all work together perfectly and make for a yummy card.

Sending Holiday Cheer!

Hello!  Today is my day to feature a card over on the Scrapping Cottage blog.  I'm having a blast showcasing the new Christmas die sets.  All of the die sets are so fun and perfect for those holiday creations!

I cut out the Christmas Camper and all of it's elements along with a few extra trees.  I used Oxide Inks to shade all of my die cuts.  The trees were splattered with white paint.

My card base was created by blending some ink on white cards stock.  I splattered the inked background with some paint for a snowy appearance.  However, I may have gotten a bit carried away a created a blizzard instead of just some snow.

Once I added my card panel, I decided to hand cut a couple of hills to add along the bottom edge.  I inked them slightly for a bit of dimension.

The Christmas Camper was placed at the focal point of my card, slightly tucked into the hills. The monochromatic blues are so pretty for a Christmas card.

The trees were scattered amongst the hills.  I trimmed a couple of the trees so that they would be different heights on the hills.  The sweet snowman was tucked amongst the trees.

The sentiment was stamped on a hand cut flag and was added to my card as the final finishing accent.

Here is the die set that I used on my card, available in the store:
