Hello Scrapping Cottage Friends,

I love tulips!  They are usually one of the first flowers to pop up in the spring! Signaling that the cold winter months are coming to an end.  My favorite tulips are yellow but the red come in a close second!

Design Steps:
1.  I used a black A2 card base, red card stock 4 x 5 1/4, and polka dot DP  3 3/4 x 5.  Glue the red card stock to the polka dot DP and set aside 

2.  Next cut out a piece of green card stock using the Spring Grass die.  Cut out a white rectangle using the Double Stitched Rectangle die 3rd from the largest.  Use a cloud stencil and blue ink to create the background.  Glue the cloud stitched rectangle onto a red rectangle layer

 3.  Using the Garden Wheelbarrow die cut out the pieces in red, black, silver, dark and light green, red and yellow

4.  Shade the pieces and then assemble them using a fine tip glue
5.  Next pop the cloud panel onto the polka dot DP add the grass then the wheelbarrow.  Then carefully arrange the tulips and glue them into the wheelbarrow.  Add the sentiment and glue to the black card base and your card is complete

Design Steps:

1.  Cut all of the pieces using the Flower Power Tomte die.  I used yellow, green, blue and white card stock
2.  Using a variety of inks shade the pieces and then assemble using a fine tip glue
3.  Use an A2 white card base cut a piece of green 4 x 5 1/4 and DP 3 3/4 x 5.  Use the 4th from the largest Pierced Oval die to cut out a white oval.  Use the 2nd from the largest Stitched Scallop Oval die to cut out a green oval
4.  With the pieced oval die in place shade in the opening with a light blue.  Also stamp your sentiment on yellow and layer onto green
5.  Glue the DP to the green card stock then add the ribbon tying a knot in the center.  I use a glue dot to keep the knot in place
6.  Glue the ribbon panel to the front of the A2 white card base.  Add the green oval and then the shaded blue oval
7.  Place pop dots to the back of the little Tomte and add him to the oval on the front
8.  For the inside I used the Happy expressions die to cut out a yellow and green happy. Glued them together slightly off center then placed inside card.  Add the Birthday sentiment and the strip of DP to the bottom with the little flowers.  To finish I added some rhinestones to the front and inside

Garden Sign

Hello Scrapping Cottage Friends,

It is nice to see you on this beautiful Thursday!

This little sign card can be for encouragement, graduation or a just because card.  I love mixing fun papers with our wonderful Garden collection.  I am a bit of a paper hoarder so I love when I can actually use some of it.  My husband said I have enough paper and dies to last a lifetime.  But you and I know you never have enough craft supplies!

 1.  Use an A2 white card base, green card stock 4 x 5 1/4, Designer Paper 3 3/4 x 5.  Glue the green to the white card base and then glue the DP to the green
 2.  Cut out the pieces of the sign using the Garden Phrase die.  I used brown wood designer paper, pink, white and yellow card stock.  Using the Gardening Hat and Gloves die cut it out in white card stock.  Using the Spring Grass die cut it out using green card stock
 3.  Shade the pieces using a variety of Tim Holtz inks and a small applicator.  Next glue the grass to the card front then add the sign and phrase.  Assemble the hat and the gloves using a fine tip glue
6.  Last pop up the hat to the upper corner of the sign.  Then glue one glove flat to the card and pop up the other to that glove as shown.  Add the flowers and the rhinestones

Father's Day

Hello Scrapping Cottage Friends!

I am having so much fun creating with our new Garden Release.  I decided to make a card for my brother for Father's Day.  He loves working out in the yard and at one point in his life he had a landscape company.  So I thought this card would be perfect for him!

To make this card I used a sketch from one of the Splitcoaststampers Challenges.  The sketch looked like this:

I used a variety of designer papers and a bright red ribbon to finish it off.  The dies I used are the Lawnmower, Spring Grass and Wacky Stitched Circle.  I have linked them so you can take a peek.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I do hope you check out all the wonderful dies we have in stock right now!
