Camping Critters

Hello Scrapping Cottage Friends

As you have heard the Scrapping Cottage family just got bigger with it's new line of stamps and dies.  The line is called lil' bluebird designs.  In the first release there are 16 stamp sets with matching dies.  And you can save up to 50% on bundles.  Today, I am using the Camping Critters set.  



 Designer Steps:

1.  Cut a piece of white card stock 3 1/4 x 8 1/4.  Ink the top of the card stock with a navy blue and the bottom of the piece with green.  Cut the mountains and trees using the using the Mountain and Tree Slimline die.  I cut it on green and brown card stock
2.  Stamp all of your little pieces using a black dye ink and the Camping Critters stamp set.  Color the pieces with Prismacolor pencils.  I also used Gamsol for blending.   Cut the pieces out using the coordinating Camping Critters dies.
3.  Glue the mountains to the sponged card stock then add the tree line.  Glue that panel to a white slimline card base
4.  Arrange your little critters and stamp your sentiment.  The sentiment is also a part of the stamp set! Love matching sentiments!

Rose Anniversary Card

Hello Scrapping Cottage Friends

I wanted to make a beautiful, classy Anniversary card for a friend so I decided to use our new Rose Background Slimline.  It is hard to see in the photo but I used a red foil paper for the background behind the die and it is so shiny and pretty.  It also came together very quickly!


Designer Steps:

1.  Using the Expression Happy and the Expressions Anniversary cut out the dies one time on the red foil and 2 additional times in black.  Glue them all together placing the red one on top
3.  Use a black slimline for the card base.  Cut a piece of red foil 3 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Use the Rose Background Slimline die and cut it out of black card stock.  Also using the second from the smallest Scalloped Stitched Retangle die cut out a small black rectangle
4.  Glue Happy Anniversary to the scalloped rectangle
5.  Glue the red foil panel to the front of the black slimline card base.  Then glue the rose die cut piece to the red foil as shown above.  Pop up the Happy Anniversary rectangle and add the bow.  Your card is complete

I have used two of the new dies on this card the Clouds Horizontal Slimline and the Farm Fence Slimline.

Happy Hello

Hello Scrapping Cottage Friends

We have a HUGH SLIMLINE DIE RELEASE with 20 fantastic dies.  You can get the entire collection for a whopping 58% off right now or if you wish a single die at 25% off!  The new designs are just so amazing.  They are sure to put your imagination into overdrive!!  Check them out right HERE.

I have used one of the new dies on this card.  It is called Circle Window Slimline.

I used a white card base and cut the die piece out in white using the Circle Windows Slimline.  Because I really wanted the little roosters to stand out.  The roosters where cut out using the Country Farm Rooster from our last release.  I cut 3 of them out and glued them to each window.  

After I glue them to the windows I used dimensional tape to attach the die cut panel to the card base.  I then cut out the Happy Hello 2 times using the Happy Expressions die and the Hello Expressions die.  I glued them together and then glued them to the card front
