Cottage Cutz Beach Scene

Hello, my friends!!  I’m trying to get back into creating after being sick for weeks and unable to craft.  I appreciate your patience in waiting for my return.  Today I have for you a Cottage Cutz Beach Scene card, created with several Cottage Cutz nautical dies.

Cottage Cutz Beach Scene

Nautical scenes are not my norm in card making; however, I have seen recently the Cottage Cutz nautical dies and thought they are so cute and perfect for beach scenes.  I couldn’t resist buying them!  These nautical dies are small ones but easy to work with. They are the main features on my card, which I made as a “Thank You” card for my son-in-law who loves the beach.

This photo is a closeup of the die cut from Cottage Cutz Paddles & Rope Ladder (Net) die. The net and fish are fun to use.  If you are thinking, “Orange fish??”, let me clear that up for you.  LOL  Grouper fish come in various colors and orange is one of them.

The following photo is a closeup of the two pelicans made with the Cottage Cutz Pelican Die.  I attached one of the fish die cuts from the Cottage Cutz Paddles & Rope Ladder (Net) Die to the pelican’s beak.  Have you ever seen a live pelican?  WOW, a pelican’s beak is HUGE!!!  Living in Florida near the beach is a blessing as I get to see these, and other, gorgeous birds.

The next photo is of the Cottage Cutz Rope Corner Die.  The rope and float are two die cuts that are glued together.  The die includes an anchor also that can be attached to the rope.  The cloud in the background, as well as the other two seen in the first photo, were made with the Cottage Cutz Lighthouse w/ Clouds Die.  I didn’t take time to provide dimension to them.

The frame around the scene was created with Our Daily Bread Designs Double Stitched Rectangles Dies.  I cut tree rectangles and glued them together for dimension.

Happy Birthday Easel Card, Brayer Beach Scene

Having spent the holidays on a Caribbean cruise with special friends, I decided to create a beach scene with the color of the Caribbean Sea for a Happy Birthday Easel Card.  Today is the birthday of one of the special friends, and I made this card for him.  I hope his day includes many blessings and plenty of cake and ice cream!

The beach scene was created by using a Brayer Art Tool and various Stampin’ Up! inks.  The Stampin’ Up! ink colors I used are:

The palm trees were made with a stamp image from Plant Hope.  The sentiment, Happy Birthday, is from the Bring on the Cake stamp set.  Enjoy!


God’s Blessings!
