Foxy Birthday!

Hello Scrapping Cottage Fans!

I am continuing to use the dies from the new Birthday Release.  There are so many cute dies that it makes card making for birthdays so much fun.  Today, I am using the cutest fox I have ever seen.  Living in South Carolina we actually have these darling little red fox running through our neighborhood. Now on to the card for the day!

Design Steps:

 1.  Cut out the fox using the Birthday Fox die.  Use rust and tan cardstock for the cut
 2.  Shade the piece with rust ink and then assemble.  Color the nose and eyes with black marker.  Use a white gel pen to add dots to the eyes
 3.  Use a white A2 card base with a piece of DP 4 X 5 1/4 layered on orange card stock.  Cut a yellow striped piece of DP 5 1/4 x 1 layered on orange.  Assemble the card with the striped strip near the bottom of the card as shown above
 4.  Cut out the party hat and package in orange, pink and striped yellow DP
 5.  Assemble the package and hat.  Glue the hat onto the fox's head
 6.  Pop up the package and fox onto the card as shown below.  Stamp Happy Birthday and glue to the front of the card.  Add the rhinestones to finish the card

Little Boy Birthday!

Good Morning Scrapping Cottage Friends!

Both of my nieces had little boys and they will be turning 3.  I can't believe how quickly time flies.  It seems like those sweet boys were just born yesterday!  So anyway I am making a fun little card for both of my active little great nephews.  Also before I got on with today's card.  We have a huge sale on our stamp and die sets.  Check out the link below.

Designer Steps:

 1.  I started off with an A2 gray card base.  Then I ran a piece of vanilla card stock 5 1/4 x 4 through an embossing folder that had gray ink on the impression lines.  I then added gray ink onto the edges of the vanilla card stock.  Stamped the balloon and Happy Birthday in navy ink.  Glued it to the card base
 2.  Using the Birthday Puppy Die cut the piece of the pup in dark gray and light gray
 3.  Shade the pieces using a black ink.  Color the nose and collar with black marker then assemble
 4.  Use the Birthday Puppy die and cut out the hat and cupcake in navy, red and yellow
 5.  Shade the pieces and then assemble
 6.  Use dimension tape and pop the pup and cupcake to the card.  Add the sequins and your card is finished

Strawberry Cupcake

Hello Scrapping Cottage Friends

I am on a cupcake roll!  This is another cupcake from the birthday release.  I am in love with all of them.  I put a group shot of the 3 cupcake cards I have made at the bottom of this post.  I think they would make an adorable gift set.
Designer Steps:
 1.  Cut all of the pieces out of white card stock using the Birthday Cupcake w/Strawberry
2.  Color all of the pieces with your favorite markers.  Then glue the pieces together
 3.  Use an A2 white card base cut a piece of dark red card stock just slightly smaller then the card front.  Cut a piece of strawberry DP 4 x 5 1/4.  Glue the strawberry paper to the dark red card stock.  Cut a piece of green polka dot DP 1 1/2 x 5 1/4.  Layer it onto dark red card stock
 4.  Glue the green polka dot strip to the bottom section of the strawberry DP and add the ribbon
 5.  Using the Cross Stitch Circle die the 3rd from the largest cut a white circle.  Place dimension tape on the back of the cupcake and add it to the circle
 6.  Put dimension tape on the back of the circle and pop it to the card as show below
7.  Take the whole panel and glue it to the white card base.  Add some glossy dots and your card is complete

Cherry Cupcake!

Hello Scrapping Cottage Fans!

The Birthday Release has really given me the opportunity to stay ahead of all the birthdays I have coming up.  There are a number of sweet yummy cupcakes in this collection and each one of them lends itself to some bright cheery colors.

Designer Steps:
 1.  Using the Birthday Cupcake w/Cherry die cut all the pieces out in white card stock
2.  Color all of the pieces with your favorite makers.  I added score lines to the cupcake bottom and glossy accents to the cherry.  Glue all of the pieces together after the Glossy Accents is dry
 3.  Use a white A2 base card. Cut out a green piece of card stock just slightly smaller then the white card base. Then cut a piece of red checked DP 4 x 5 1/4. Glue the Red checked DP to the green card stock and then glue to the card front
 4.  Cut a piece of cherry DP 5 1/8 x 2 1/2 and then layer it on top of green card stock. Make 2 small banners with DP and adhere to the top of the cherry panel.  Add a ribbon and that panel is complete.  Glue the panel to the front of the card just slightly left of center as shown above
 5.  Cut a piece of green card stock 3 1/4 x 2 1/2 and run it through a dotted embossing folder.  Layer it onto a piece of white card stock
6.  Glue the green embossed panel as shown above
7.   Add the cupcake using dimensional tape.  Cut out the word celebrate twice using the Celebrate Expressions die.  Glue the two Celebrates together and then glue to the card front
