Ladybug Love! - Scrapping Cottage

Good Morning Scrapping Cottage Friends!

 I am continuing to make my Valentine Cards and having so much fun with the new Valentine and St. Patrick's Day release dies.  They are still on sale for 25% off so don't miss your opportunity to check out this cuter then cute release!   Today I am using the Lovebug Bee & Ladybug die with the traditional Valentine's colors.

Design Steps:
 1.  I used the Ladybug die and cut it out three times in red, black and pink
 2.  I did a little shading on the red and pink then assembled the Ladybug.  I also made the other bug a little Manbug using the black shell and red under layer plus I used the bow for a bowtie!  You can see it below
 3.  Use an A2 white card base, cut a piece of red slightly smaller then the base and then a piece of black polka dot DP slightly smaller then the red.  Also cut a 1 1/4 x 4 inch red polka dot band.  Then using the Fancy Floral Lace Border cut out to lacy strips and then cut them down to 4 inches long
 4.  Glue the Lace border to the top and bottom of the red polka dot strip
 5.  Using the Pierced Rectangle die third from the largest cut out a white rectangle
6.  Wrap your ribbon around the rectangle and tie a square knot.  Pop up you two bugs just about the ribbon.  Stamp your sentiment just below the ribbon

7.  Pop the rectangle panel to the center of the card and add some small red hearts

Mousey Valentine!

Hello Blogger Friends

I am doing this card for the House Mouse Challenge.  It has a big red bow and some adorable little mice I thought it was perfect for Valentine's Day!
I used some great DP for the background cut out the circles with a CottageCutz die set and the heart from a Pink and Main heart die set.  The mice are colored with copic markers and I added the rhinestones for some bling.  

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Hi Friends!

I have some great news for you!! We are have a 25% off sale on our new Valentine's and St. Patrick's Day dies.  I can't wait for you to see them.  They are just so adorable you are going to want the whole collection.

Today, I am using the St. Patrick's Day Cupcake.  We also have a cupcake for Valentine's Day.  Both of them make fantastic cards or fun embellishments for a baked gift.

Design Steps:

1.  Use an A2 size white card base.  Score at 2 1/8 then flip the card over and score at 2 1/8 again.  This will give you a gate fold card
2.  Cut 2 strips of green card stock at 2 x 5 1/4 and 2 DP strips at 1 3/4 x 5.  Glue them together
3.  Glue the panels to the front of the card

4.  Open the card and cut a piece of light green card stock 5 1/4 x 4.  Glue to the center of the inside
5.  Using the St. Patrick's Day Phrase & More die cut out the sentiment.  Using the St. Patrick's Day Cupcake die cut out extra clovers and coins.  Glue them to the inside as shown and shadow with matching ink
6.  Using the St. Patrick's Day Cupcake die cut out the pieces for the cupcake.  I used green, yellow, black, and brown card stock
7.  Cut out a white circle using the 3rd from the largest Cross-Stitched Circle die.  Add shading to all of the pieces using coordinating ink colors
8.  Assemble the pieces after you have finished shading
9.  Use the 2nd from the smallest Cross-Stitched Circle die to cut the back layer for the sentiment
10.  Cut a 11 x 1 1/2 strip of green then layer a piece of embossed white card stock 4 1/4 x 1 on the middle section.  Wrap the strip around the card to form a band and tape or glue the back closed.  Glue the circle to the middle of the band and pop on the cupcake.  Add the sentiment as shown and your card is complete

Sweet Mice! - Scrapping Cottage

Good Morning Scrapping Cottage Friends

I am continuing to make my Valentine cards.  I don't make as many Valentines as I do Christmas Cards and I usually make a lot of different ones verse the same card.  I used the Christmas Mice die for this darling card.  I love it when you can use our fantastic dies in multiple ways and for different occasion.

Design Steps:
 1.  Cut out all of the pieces using the Christmas Mice die. I used a variety of card stock and designer papers
 2.  Shade the mouse with TH inks and then assemble the boy mouse
 3.  Shade the girl mouse with TH inks and then assemble the girl mouse
 4.  Using gray inks to shade the bench
 5.  Glue the mice to the bench as shown
 6.  Use a white card base and cut red card stock slightly smaller then the base.  And then cut the DP 4 x 5 1/4
 7.  Glue the DP and the red card stock together and then glue down the mice

8.  Using the Hugs & Kisses die cut out of red card stock.  Glue the Hugs & Kisses to the card as shown
