Traveling Llama! - Scrapping Cottage

Good Morning Scrapping Cottage Crafters!

Since it is vacation time for a many families I thought it would be fun to make a travel related card.  My niece is going on short mission trip with her church. She is heading to El Salvador to work with children and share her love of singing to the Lord!  So this card is dedicated to her.

Design Steps:

 1.  Cut all of the pieces from the Traveling Llama in white card stock
 2.  Use your markers and color the pieces.  I find it easier to color the smaller pieces while they are still attached to the larger piece of white card stock
 3.  After all of the pieces are colored assemble the llama
 4.  Use an A2 white card base, cut a slightly smaller piece of red then a slightly smaller piece of DP.  Use the third from the largest Pierced Rectangle die and cut out a white rectangle
 5.  Pop up the Llama onto the white rectangle
 6.  Glue the red card stock to the DP map and add the ribbon.  Then glue the panel to the front of the white card base
7.  Use the Retro Tag Toppers and cut out the pieces in tan and dark brown.  Stamp the sentiment and cut out the circle and glue the tag together
8.  Pop the rectangle with the llama to the front of the card then add the sentiment tag and your card is complete

Red T-Bird! - Scrapping Cottage

Hello Scrapping Cottage Friends!

I have really enjoyed working with the new release dies from the Just for Guys collection.  This little T-Bird reminds me of the movie American Graffiti one of my all time favorite shows!

Designer Steps:
1.  Cut out all of the pieces in white using the Vintage T-Bird die.  Color the pieces with your markers.  I used Copics. 

2.  Assemble the car using a fine tip glue for the smaller pieces
3.  Use an A2 white card base then cut the following: 5 1/4 x 4 piece of deep red card stock, 5 x 3 3/4 piece of DP, cut a white rectangle using the 4th from the largest Pierced Rectangle Set and a yellow rectangle cut 2 x 3 1/2.
4.  Glue the DP to the deep red card stock add the yellow rectangle and then the white pieced rectangle.  Last step before you glue it to the card front is to add the ribbon.  I tape it with scotch tape to the back so it lays nice and flat
5.  Cut out the pieces of the medallion using the Retro Tag Toppers.  Use deep red, white and yellow card stock.  Glue the white on top of the red and then the yellow.  Stamp the yellow with your sentiment
6.  Pop the car to the card front panel then glue the panel to the white card base.  Last add the Retro Tag to the upper left using pop dots and your card is complete

Good Morning Friends!

I have so many friends and family with birthdays in the summer so I had to get busy making cards.  The other thing I have a lot of is washi tape!!  So I put the two together and made this fun card for you today.

Design Steps:
  1. Use an A2 kraft card base cut a slightly smaller piece of yellow and glue it to the front of the card and set aside
  2. Cut a piece of kraft card stock 4 x 5 1/4. Use several different sizes of washi tape and apply it to the upper left corner of the kraft card stock as shown
  3. Stamp the Alpaca, hat, presents, sentiment and cactus using the Spit Happens stamp set
  4. Color the images with colored pencils
  5. Use a white gel pen and brighten up the eyes
  6. Add the bottom piece of washi tape and glue to the yellow card stock on the front of the kraft card base
