CottageCutz Springtime Floral

Thank you so much for visiting today.  For today's project share the main focal point on this card is the beautiful Springtime Floral Die from CottageCutz.  Isn't it so pretty.  It's a good size and is perfect for any occasion.
You could say this is a Clean and Simple Card for me-as this is about as CAS as I can    This card was so much fun to make.  To begin, I cut out 3 of the Springtime Floral dies.  For the base, I used Mowed Lawn distress ink on the stems and leaves.  On the second die I used Picked Raspberry distress ink to color the pretty flowers.  I then cut them off the stem and popped them up on the base die.  For the third cut Springtime Floral, I distressed with Mustard Seed Distress ink, cut them off the stem, and glued them in the appropriate areas on the base.
Really quick and easy with such elegant results, don't you think!  It looks fresh and feminine all at once.  Thanks again for taking a look.  Until next time, Happy Crafting!  Here is the die I used:

CottageCutz Garden Gazebo Wedding Card

 Welcome to another edition of the beautiful CottageCutz Collection Creations. Today I am here with an Easel Card using the Garden Gazebo, Bella Spring Wreath, Fancy Floral Corner #2, Garden Butterflies, and the Best Wishes Expression Dies.
Burlap is just the rage right now for weddings so I just had to go with using it on this Wedding themed card.  I have both burlap and Kraft cardstock for contrast.
At the base The Gazebo has been painted with glitter glue and glittered with fine white glitter.  I used a few little rhinestones to sparkle it up and used the Bella Spring Wreath to frame it.
At the base the Garden Butterfly was glittered as well and mounted on a circle base to highlight the design. 

The Fancy Floral #2 Corner is used for lace effect.  Lots of texture and layers are displayed on this card.

Thank you so much for dropping by todday to view this CottageCutz Wedding card.  It was a pleasure to welcome you and show you how to use those gorgeous CottageCutz dies.  Until next time enjoy you day and Happy Crafting!  Here are the dies used in this project:

CottageCutz Wedding Day Pillow Box

 Happy Crafting everyone.  Today is a project to share with a wedding theme.  I just adore making favors and little boxes for gift giving.  There's going to be a wedding in my family the beginning of next year, so I am in the throws of lots of crafting.  The latest and popular trend is "Rustic" Weddings with burlap and canning jars as part of the decorations.  It can be very elegant.
 As you can see here the white contrast very beautifully with the burlap fabric.  The pillow bow was created with the We R Memory Keepers Pillow Box Board.  It's 6 x 6-quick and easy to make especially if you need to make lots of them!
 The butterfly has been glittered and so has the flower-love me some sparkle on this.  Also there is some silver bling strands on either side of the burlap.  It helps it to stay put and not fray.  Burlap frays pretty easy so you have to think of creative ways to create with it to keep it in tact on your projects.  Thank you so much for visiting and taking a look.  It's been a pleasure to share an idea for wedding favors with you.  Hope it gives you inspiration to create something wonderful for you and your family.  Until next time.....Happy Crafting.  Here are the dies I used:
