CottageCutz Happy Easter Card

Hello everyone and welcome to another CottageCutz design team project.  Today I would like to shre with you this lovely Easter Card made with the beautiful Easter Collection dies from The Scrapping Cottage.
For this card the CottageCutz  Happy Easter Egg die  was used cut on blue cardstock and the Vine die cut on green cardstock.  The paper used is an older stack for DCWV called The Blossom Song.  I just loved that stack.  I made quite a few projects with it and am still using the small pieces I have left.
For the card base Romantic Rectangles was used-you can find tutorials on youtube that show you how to cut the die to create a card.  The Happy Easter Egg die from CottageCutz was mounted on Parisian Motifs from Spellbinders.   The flower is Spellbinders Gerber Daisy die.   It was so fun to create to. 

Thank you so much for joining me today.  Hope you found some inspiration to create your own Easter Cards.  Until next time......Happy Crafting.  See you soon!  The CottageCutz dies used as follows:

CottageCutz Wedding Card for Son

Greetings Crafters.  Well the day has finally come.  This card was created for my Son for his Wedding with the gorgeous Cottage Cutz dies from last years Wedding Collection.  I just loved that release-so many pretty themed dies to chose from.
This is the box I created to house the easel card.  I showed this to my husband.  I said see the card I made for Wesley,....he said that's not a card it's a  He's right!!!  The box is 6 x 6 x 2.  My flowers are pretty chunky on the card so I had to create the box to accommodate them.  For decorating the top of the box I used CottageCutz Bride & Groom die and the Wedding Day Expressions Die.
This is the easel card.  I used the Spellbinders Spiral Blossom One to create the flowers.  Of course, I had to use burlap as that is part of their Wedding theme.
The top of the easel card showcases the Wedding Rings die from CottageCutz.  I cut it out on kraft card stock and the diamond and bow was cut on white cardstock  I glittered the bow and the diamond for contrast.  There are little rolled burlap roses tucked in with the Spellbinders roses.
For the bottom of the easel card I used the Elegant Champagne Glass Cottage Cutz Die and the Mr. & Mrs. Expressions Die.  Isn't that pretty!  I made this so that a little envelope tucks in behind that die cut.  I will put my sentiment and gift in there.
Thank you so much for visiting today.  I sure to appreciate it.  Until next time, Happy Crafting.  See you again soon!

CottageCutz Critterville Bait Shack

Greetings friends and crafters and welcome to another edition of the CottageCutz Critterville Die creations.  This is called the Critterville Bait Shack.  Doesn't this evoke longings of Spring!  When I was growing up I used to look forward to opening day of fishing season.  Where I grew up it was in April.  I enjoyed fishing with my Dad and believe it or not, I cleaned my own   Bet you didn't know that about me!
I made an embellishment out of the Baby Raccoon die from CottageCutz.  I added some burlap rolled roses to match the small burlap piece I used under the burlap piece peeking out from behind the Spellbinders leaf die cut.  These little Critterville houses are super adorable.  Be sure to check out the CottageCutz Blog to see what the other design teams creations with these fun dies.  Until next time, Happy Crafting.  See you again soon.  These are the dies used:
