Happy Easter - Scrapping Cottage

Hello Scrapping Cottage Buddies!

Before I get started I wanted to give you a heads up about the sales we are have at our store.  We have a Collection of new release dies called Rise and Shine that are currently 25% off and they are just so much fun!  To see some card samples from the design team click here and here!

Now on with today's card!  I am on my last Easter card for my friends and family in fact most of the cards are just about to go in the mail at the end of the week.  This is my last one and I just love how this little guy turned out in his overalls with the little buttons!

Designer Steps:
 1.  Start with an A2 white card base and cut a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of blue card stock.  Run the blue card stock through a cloud embossing folder
 2. Cut out the greeting using the Happy Easter Phrase die and white card stock.  Glue the phrase to the upper part of the blue embossed panel
 3. Cut out the white fence using the Victorian Fence die.  Then glue it just below the greeting
 4.  Next cut out a strip of green card stock 4 x 1 1/4 and 3 grass strips using the Spring Grass die
 5.  Layer the grass onto the bottom part of the card as shown
 6.  Using gray card stock and the Mr. Peter Rabbit die cut out the body.  Next use the same die and cut out the overalls in a denim DP.  Also using the same die and cut out the Easter eggs using yellow, orange, and pink card stock
7.  Shade the bunny with a gray ink then glue on the overalls add the black pearl eye and tiny buttons.  Glue the eggs into the grass and one in the bunny's hand and your card is complete.

Spring Blessings - Dare 2B Artzy

Good Morning Artzy Friends!

Everything here in South Carolina is in bloom especially the Azaleas. Most of the flowers are bright pink which is so cheerful after a long cold winter! So with flowers on my mind I designed this card for today using the new Blossoms stamp set.

Designer Steps:
  1. Use an A2 white card base cut the navy check DP from the Summertime Petals paper collection 4 x 5 1/4 and glue to the front of the white
  2. Cut a piece of yellow printed DP from the Honey Bloom paper collection 3 3/4 x 5 and glue to the navy DP
  3. Stamp the flowers using the Blooms stamp set.  I used a masking technique and then a scallop die to cut out
  4. Color the flowers with copic markers: YG61, 63 - YR14, 18 - Y11, 17
  5. Pop the scallop the the front of the card and add the navy bow
  6. Stamp the sentiment from the April Showers stamp set and layer onto navy checked DP
