Window Wreath - Pink and Main

Good Morning Dear Pink and Main Fans!

It has been gorgeous weather here in South Carolina!  The humidity hasn't set in yet so we are really enjoying our walks with our big lab Cookie!  There are just dozens of different types of birds here. And as a matter of fact we have a huge Bald Eagle's nest in our neighbors tree.  Plus another extremely large nest with a Blue Crane.  The Crane has 3 babies and I don't know how it is staying in the tree it is so gigantic. All of the birds have inspired me to do a card using our set with sweet little birds called Airmail.

Designer Steps:

  1. Use a white A2 card base and cut a slightly smaller piece of light gray card stock.  I scored the gray card stock every 1/2 inch to make it look like siding.
  2. Use a die to cut out the white window and dark gray shutters
  3. Place a piece of designer card stock (Pink and Main Shades of Spring Paper Pad) behind the window and mount to card as shown
  4. Cut out green grass and glue to the bottom of the gray card stock
  5. Stamp the sentiment (Pink and Main Airmail) in black in as shown 
  6. Using a punch and the same designer paper you used in the window. Punch out 5 flowers and glue to card front add pearls to the center
  7. Stamp images (Pink and Main Airmail) and color with copic: C0, 1, 3 - YG23, 25 - RV02, 13 - BG70, 72 - Y06
  8. Use coordinating dies (Pink and Main Airmail) and cut out images then glue to card as shown

As Always Thanks for stopping by!

Sweet Lamb - Cottage Cutz

Good Morning Dear Scrapping Cottage Friends!

I am happy to show you another one of the new baby dies that was just released.  I have had two great nephews born in the last 6 months and they came down to visit from Ohio.  They were both just so adorable.  So needless to say I am in the baby mood!  Today I am showing you a card using Sweet Baby Lamb.

Here are my design steps for this sweet baby card!

1.  Use an A2 white card base cut a piece of cloud designer paper using the second largest Pierced Rectangle die then glue to the center of the card front
2.  Cut a white fence using the Victorian Fence die, cut green grass using the Spring Grass die and cut a pink frame using the Pierced Wide Rectangle Frame Set.  Glue the fence and the grass to the bottom of the sky.  Then add dimension tape to the frame and mount it

3.  Cut and assemble all the little critters and accessories from the Sweet Baby Lamb die set

4.  Use the second to the smallest Cross Stitch Circle dies and cut a white circle.  Stamp the sentiment and add a button with some pink and white bakers twine

Here are the Cottage Cutz Products I used to create this card!

These new baby dies are so sweet!  I hope you will make a new mom very happy by making her a card to celebrate having her new little one!

Easter! - Cottage Cutz

Good Morning to All of Our Scrapping Cottage Friends!

It is Pam with an Easter card to share with you today.  I have created a card using inlays from the die called Spring Bunny Egg.

1.  Begin by cutting the Spring Bunny Egg die and removing all the pieces. Be careful to put them in a place where the piece will not get lost.  I actually place them in a small box until I am ready for them

2.  Trace the egg to make a back so that you can glue down the inlaid small pieces after you are finished coloring them set aside

3.  Mask the top half of the egg using green ink sponge the bottom half of the egg.

 4.   Then mask the bottom of the egg using blue ink sponge the top part of the egg

5.   Gather all the inside pieces and begin coloring them with your copic markers or any coloring tools you may enjoy using

6.  After you are finished coloring glue the back to the egg and then start adding the colored inlay pieces
7.  Next using the largest Double Stitched Rectangle die center a piece 5 1/4 x 4 inch piece of yellow checked paper to make a frame

8.   Using the second largest Double Stitched Rectangle die cut 5 1/4 x 4 inch piece of yellow card stock
9.   Glue the yellow card stock directly under the checked paper
10.  Using the Grass Border die cut a strip of grass and glue it behind the frame on the yellow card stock

 11.  Glue the entire frame to the front of an A2 card
 12.  Center your Spring Bunny Egg in the frame under the grass
 13.  Cut two more bunnies using the Spring Bunny Egg and color them plus cut 3 orange flowers using the Hello Spring die
 14.  Add the bunnies and flowers as shown and for a final touch add a small bow to the top left of the frame
