Bunny Raid!

Hello Scrapping Cottage Friends,

Today,  I am using one of my all time favorite dies!  This carrot raiding bunny is just adorable.  I love all the details and that fluffy white bunny tail!
Design Steps:

 1.  Using the Bunny Truck die cut out all of the pieces using red, orange, silver, white, green, brown, pink and black card stock
 2.  Use a variety of inks to shade and color the different pieces and then assemble.  I used a very fine tip glue to place all of the pieces
3.  Use an A2 white card base cut a piece of light orange card stock just slightly smaller then the card front.  Cut a piece of carrot DP 4 x 5 1/4.  Glue the light orange and DP paper to the white card front.  Using the Double Stitched Square die (2nd from the largest) cut out a piece of green flowered DP and then layer it with light orange card stock.  Glue the square to the front of the card slightly toward the top.  The sentiment was part of the paper pad so I cut it out and layered it with the green DP and light orange.  Pop the sentiment to the card and then pop on the truck and your card is complete

Good Morning!

Hello Scrapping Cottage Friends,

I love surprising friends with happy mail.  So I like to make cards with just a simple greeting so I can write them a short note on the inside.  I want them to know I have been thinking of them.  I thought this great rooster and sweet chick was perfect for a hello card!

Design Steps:

 1.  Using the Rooster and Chick die cut out the pieces using various colors of card stock
 2.  Shade the pieces using different colors of inks and a small applicator.  Assemble the pieces
 3.  Use a white A2 card base a piece of red just slight smaller then the card front and a piece of Farm DP 4 x 5 1/4.  Using the Pierced Rectangle die cut out a white rectangle (I used the 3rd from the largest)
4.  Glue the Farm DP to the red card stock and then add the white rectangle.  Cut a strip of green for the grass.  Next pop up the rooster, chick and sun.  Then stamp the little hello in black ink and your card is complete

Buzzy Bee!

Hello Scrapping Cottage Friends

In South Carolina all the Azaleas are beginning to bloom!  The pink, white and red flowers are gorgeous.  Along with the flowers comes the bees.  So with that being said this wonderful time of the year is my inspiration for this cute card.

Design Steps:
1.   Using the Busy Bee die cut out the pieces in white,  yellow, and black card stock

2.  Use a clear Wink of Stella to give the wings some shimmer
 3.  Shade the bee parts and then assemble.  Use tiny rhinestones for the bee's eyes
 4.  Cut out a black oval using the Scalloped Oval second from the largest.  Cut out a DP oval using the Pierced Oval die.  Use an A2 white card stock base, a piece of yellow card stock just slightly smaller then the card front by an 1/8 inch,  next cut a striped black and white piece of DP 4 x 5 1/4
 5.  Using the Spring Blooms die cut out 3 yellow flowers and 2 green leaves. Shade the flowers
6.  Glue the striped black and white DP to the yellow card stock.  Glue the black oval down and then the DP oval. Next add the black ribbon and then mount to the card base

7.    Pop up the bee and the flowers and add the rhinestones


Hope things are going well for you and just think Spring is almost here!!
