CottageCutz - Give Thanks

Sunday, September 25, 2016

Hello everyone,

I am here with the Scrapping Cottage Blog sharing a few of the newest Fall CottageCutz dies that were just released.  If you missed it, you can find them here.  I don't know about you, but I love the colors and the smell of Fall.  The bright orange, browns, reds and yellows are so vibrant and makes the earth look so beautiful.  Even though the leaves have not started to change, today it feels like Fall may be here soon.

I am also stopping over at the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop to play along with this wonderful group of people who love making "Coffee" related cards.  Stop over and see all the sponsors who have some great prizes you can win.


I am featuring several of the new Autumn release dies, so lets get started on how I created my card.

1.  A2 card - 4 1/4 x 5 1/2,
2.  The first layer is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2,
3.  I cut the solid layer with the CottageCutz Rectangle Set (the largest die),
4.  I cut all the elements that I am going to use on the card
,
5.  I inked the coffee cup from the Peppermint Latte set (isn't it cool that it is meant to be a Christmas set, but this set is so versatile you can change it up) and the small pumpkin from the Harvest Scarecrow set, the leaf  "Give Thanks" sentiment came from the Give Thanks set,
6.  I added all the elements to my card and glued them with wet glue.

a2z Scrapbooking - Peace, Love, & Joy

Saturday, September 24, 2016

I am back again with a2z Scrapbooking  challenge which is "Make It A Tag"! I hope you have had a chance to join the fun.  You have to use at least one Hero Arts image on your card. Please go to the a2z blog and see what the talented design team has created. You can add your project to the inlinkz  here.

Here is my take on the tag challenge.



Closer look at the tag

Here is how I assembled the tag card:

I am using the Hero Arts Joy Stamp and Cut set.  The tag is the new Hero Arts Nesting Tag Dies.   I made the tag into a card, I took at piece of paper 4 x 5 and scored.  I then took the die and placed it on the paper, making sure the top of the tag was above the scroe line. I added the layers on the tag.  I die cut the joy out of some red cardstock, I placed it on the tag where I wanted it to be and stamped the sentiment.  To finish the tag, I added some ribbon, twine and some little bells I had in my stash.  

If you like any of the products I used on my card, please stop over at the a2z Scrapbooking Esty store. You can also use the code "Donna15" to receive 15% off of a $25.00 order.  The Joy Stamp and Cut has sold out, but you can request it on the left side of the blog.  and don't forget you can get 15% off your order.

How I created my card,

1.  Base of the card is A2, 4 1/4 x 5 1/2,
2.  I used a stitched die for the white layer,
3.  I put some low tack artist tape around the edges and used distress inks to make the background,
4, I added the leaves around the card from the Joy Clair stamp set "Hello Autumn"  with Memento rich cocoa ink before I picked up the painters tape,
5.  I stamped the coffee cups from the Joy Clair "My Cup Runneth Over" stamp set with black memento ink,
6,  I fuzzy cut the cups using only the two bottom cups,
7.  I colored them with copics and added wink of stella for some glimmer,
8.  I added gold splatter to the layer,
9.  I used foam tape and popped the cups on the card,
10.  I finished the card by adding the sentiment from the "Hello Autumn" stamp set.
