The Scrapping Cottage - Hello + GIVEAWAY

Wednesday, June 29, 2016

Hello everyone,

I am here with the "Scrapping Cottage".  Have you seen the June release of the CottageCutz dies, you will find houses, trees, cars, trucks, clouds, furniture, vintage phone and tv and so much more!  Wow what a release.  I am using the "Vintage TV & Phone" die to make my card.  

My card is an A2 card, I cut my first layer 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  I cut the blue layer from the double-stitched Rectangle set.  I then cut a tag out from the Mail Tag Set twice and used just the top part of the top layer of the tag.  I the die cut the phone out of black and grey, there are three parts to this phone.  I popped up the phone with foam tape and added some stripe to the back of "hello" to give it some dimension.  I finished off the card with ribbon and twine.

Closer look at the phone and hello.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you will take the time and check out the new release. Also, there is time to play along with the CottageCutz challenge. The theme is POCKET. You can linked your project here. And please, use only Scrapping Cottage dies.

GIVEAWAY:  Join my blog on the left side of my blog.  Leave a comment that you are following and your name will be in the drawing to win a small die from CottageCutz which is the word I used on my card "Hello".  Thanks and good luck.  The answer will be announced on July 8th.

Joy Clair - New Release Seas the Day!

Saturday, June 25, 2016

Hello everyone,

Today I am sharing two cards using that cute set called "Seas the Day" from Joy Clair!  This stamp set was designed by Crystal Thompson, one of the design team members, and I am loving this cute stamp set!  This set has three sentiments and several different stamps to design your mermaid anyway you would like.

For my first card I used an embossing folder for the background. For the background enter circle, I used some distress ink and a sponge to make the water look darker at the bottom and lighter at the top. I stamped and fuzzy cut the mermaid, colored her with copics and popped her up on the circle frame. I added the sentiment and a couple of the other elements from the stamp set, I stamped and colored with copics and added them to my card.


For my second card, I used another embossing folder for the background.  I inked the embossing folder with some distress inks and it through the big shot.  I die cut the circle for a frame to look like the peak hole on a ship.  Added some foam tape behind the circle and added my sequins in the shaker.  I die cut the mermaid and added a few images from the Mermaid set and colored them with copics.

closer look at the shaker part of my card.
