CottageCutz Bella Tag

 It's time for another CottageCutz Creation.  Today is an altered tag made with the beautiful dies from the Bella Spring Dies.  I just love that release so much.  The dies are intricate and detailed and cut beautifully.
For this tag the Bella Leafy Branch was used behind the crochet flowers.  The Bella Spring Corner was used on the top of the tag.  The Butterfly Spring Floral was cut and adhered to a painted piece of corrugated cardboard that was sprinkled with diamond dust while the white paint was still wet.

The Lace Flower Doily was used in the background of the painted cardboard piece.  The tiny lace edges are a Martha Steward punch as well as the little fanned out piece at the bottom of the tag.
Thank you so much for stopping by today to view my creation.  Sure do appreciate it so much.  Happy crafting.  These are the dies used:

Beach Wedding Card

 Hello Papercrafters.  Today I would like to share with you a wedding card I made.  Not just an ordinary wedding card but this "mega card"  This is three 5 x 7 panels with a hinge in-between each panel.
I gave myself a challenge to use what I knew about the wedding to make this card.   It was a beach wedding.  So I used real shells, the Cuddlebug Shell die cut set, and the Martha Stewart Branch and Frond punch for the sea weed and coral.
 For each of the end panels the Spellbinders 5 x 7 Enchanted card creator dies were used.  The colors of the wedding were turquoise and purple.  The turquoise paper is a mulberry paper that was embossed.
 Of course, it's a wedding and what wedding would be complete without the classic use of roses and pearls.  The center panel is a wedding couple silhouette.  The die cuts are Spellbinders 5 x 7 Labels Four.  Diamond stickles were used on the edges of the coral and sea weed sprigs.  Martha Stewart Feldspar Glitter was used on the shells and sea horses.  I used a chunky glitter from Martha Stewart on the rolled roses.
So there you have it my mega card.  On the back behind the center panel I placed my sentiment.  I cut out two pockets for each of the back of the end panels.  One held my personal message and the other my gift.   Pssst, I have a secret....I am planning a mini album to match this.  What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you enjoyed your visit.  Have a great week!

CottageCutz Bella Tweetie Pocket Card

 Greetings Friends and Paper Crafters.  Today is a CottageCutz creation made with some dies from the Elites Bella Collection and the Spring Showers Collection.
 Aren't these Elites dies gorgeous.  They are so delicate looking and feminine and add such graceful lines to your creations.  They cut beautifully in the Cricut and are a joy to work with.  I just love them.
 As you can see I used the Bella Spring Corner on top of Spellbinders Labels 20 with a white paper lace doily cut in half underneath.  The Spring Tweetie bird was mounted on the Doily mini and adhered on top.  The Bella Spring Corner was also used in the left hand corner.  The bottom die is the Bella Floral Border.  The Bella Leafy Branch is adhered under the rolled Bity Blossom Rolled Rose from Spellbinders.  A Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page Punch set was used to frame the card.
For the tag the Bella Spring Tulips and the little tweetie from the Garden Tabs, Set of 3 was used at the top.  Brush Corduroy Distress Ink and diamond stickles was used on the edges.  Want2Scrap Bling rhinestones was added for some glitz!

Thanks so much for stopping by today to view this creation.   I will have another creation soon.  I made something else this week but didn't want to post it until it was received in the mail.  Wouldn't want to spoil the surprise!!!  lol   Just in case you thought I was slacking  Have a great rest of your weekend.  See you soon. Here are the dies I used:

CottageCutz Shabby Chic Confectionery Bags

Greetings my blogging friends and welcome to another addition of CottageCutz dies.  Today I am showcasing the Confectionery Bags in Large, Medium, and Small.
This is the Large Confectionery Bag.  The inside has the Scallop Insert Card/Tag.  The Doily Mini and Teapot Mini were used to decorate the bag along with the Greenery Die and some tiny Prima flowers that were distressed with Victorian Velvet ink.
This is the Confectionery Bag Medium.  I used matching dies to coordinate with the set.   The idea of using these in a mini album was the thought behind these sweet little bag creations.  I just love a tea theme too.  Really pretty for a Mother's Day Gift or Album.
Last but not least is the Confectionery Bag Small.  This is so cute and so tiny-it's just adorable.
Thank you so much for stopping by today to view my creations.  I really appreciate it.  Have a wonderful day doing things that make you happy!  These are the dies I used:
