CottageCutz Victorian Birdcage

 Greetings friends and papercrafters.  For today's creation for CottageCutz dies is this lovely card using the Victorian Birdcage, Flourish Bird Corner and the Flourish Vine.
 Don''t you love the background paper.  It has little bird cages.  I just had to use it-it goes along so well with the theme.  Look at the beautiful lines and scrolls in the birdcage.  It's so pretty.  I painted it with glue and sprinkled with glitter.
 You can see the bird flourish corner here.  This is a die you will find yourself using a lot.  I know I will with all the birds are use in my creations. 
Thank you so much for stopping by today to view this creation.  It is appreciated very much.  Until next time, Happy Crafting.  See you again soon.  These are the dies used.

 Greetings friends and papercrafters.  Today's Cottage Cutz creation is a gift box made with the beautiful dies from the "Victorian Release".  The dies from this release have gorgeous scrolls and sweeping lines.  They make an elegant addition to any creation.
The box was created with the We R Memory Keepers Gift Box Punch Board.  All the corners are embellished with the Butterfly Flourish Vine.  Tim Holtz distress ink Broken China and Stormy skies were used to color these vines.
On two of the sides the Fancy Victorian Butterfly accents the gift box.  The butterflies were painted with glue and sprinkled with sparkling glitter.

CottageCutz Gracie Bunny Giving Thanks


Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of a creation made with the beautiful CottageCutz dies.  This die is called Gracie Bunny Giving Thanks-just perfect for my thank you card today.
Gracie Bunny has been colored with copic markers.  The colors used were C01, C03, and C05.  It's a coincidence that this thank you card is actually going to someone who owns a boy bunny named Grayson-that's why the bunny is Gray.
The flower was created with the Sizzix Sunflower die.  The card base is Spellbinders and a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page Punch.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Be show to check out CottageCutz dies at The Scrapping Cottage for all you creative needs.  Until next time, Happy Crafting.  See you soon.  Here is the CottageCutz die used:

Sizzix Dahila with Spellbinders Fleur de Elegance

Orange is not a color I would work with outside of Halloween.  It's out of my comfort zone.  But there the paper was sitting on my table from the DCWV "Pocket Full of Posey's" stack.  It was calling to me to create this.
And oh what fun it was!  These Dahlia's were so fun to create with the Sizzix die from Susan's Garden.  They started out as white paper, inked with Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, and Barn Door distress ink.  Super fun to get those fingers inky.  Your not having fun unless you have inky fingers!
Some Spellbinders dies, Martha Stewart Butterflies, CottageCutz Expressions, and a few pearls and you have yourself a thank you card that is going to get a WOW when it is opened.  You'll be seeing a lot of "Thank You" card ideas this month on my blog.  There are a lot of special people in my life I need to thank who helped make my Son's Wedding a day one we will never forget. 
This will be making its way to two special people who traveled so far to be here for the Wedding and even brought me a present.  I was absolutely so touched.  I am truly blessed with the most wonderful family and friends that fill my life with happiness.  Thank you for stopping by today to see what's going on in my neck of the woods.  Until next time, Happy Crafting.  See You Soon!

CottageCutz Cross W/Vine

 Spring is in the air!   It's time to take out those spring colors and create.  Here's a creation using the beautiful CottageCutz dies from the recent Spring release.   This die is called the Cross W/Vine You would think of this as an Easter die, but there are more possibilities.  This could easily be used for cards for First Holy Communion, Holy Confirmation, and even a Sympathy card.  By changing up the colors and the papers, you could make some beautiful cards for these occasions.
 For the vine, copic markers were used to color and shade.  For the little flowers are I used Distress ink.  I just played with Barn Red, Lipstick Pink, and Spun Sugar.   It's the same ink used to create the rose.  I just added Mustard Seed to the center.
For the card base the Spellbinders Majestic Embrace creates the background.   The CottageCutz Bella Leafy Branch is under the pretty Rose.  Hope you have enjoy your visit today.   Be sure to check out The Scrapping Cottage and the new Vintage Release.    Until next time, Happy Crafting.  See you again soon.  The dies used are as follows:
