CottageCutz Happy Father’s Day Card

Are you looking for a design for a Father’s Day Card?   I suggest a side-step card with masculine elements.  That was my choice for my card, “CottageCutz Happy Father’s Day Card“.  Why did I title my card, CottageCutz Happy Father’s Day Card?  Because I used several CottageCutz masculine dies to create my card.  The Scrapping Cottage, the maker of CottageCutz dies, has so many wonderful dies from which to chose for any occasion.  Check out its on-line store and blog.

The CottageCutz dies I used to create my card are the Fishing Pole & Boat Die, Jeep Die, Campfire Clothesline Die, Woodlands Dies, Rustic Sign & Trees Die, and Spring Grass Die.  These and other dies used are listed near the end of this post.

I was feeling lazy when I made my card, so instead of cutting card stock and scoring it manually to form my card base, I used the Our Daily Bread Designs Side Step Card Die to create my side-step card base from white card stock.  Then I cut a 3-1/2″ x 4″ piece of white card stock to attach to the back step of the base.  Using various inks, I sponged the sky, water, and grass areas.

For the back step of the card, I die cut the fishing pole and boat from white card stock, colored the pieces with Copic Sketch Markers, glue together the pieces, and attached them to the step.

For the second step, I die cut the tent and flag with the Campfire Clothesline Die and from red, brown, and tan card stock; glued the pieces together; and attached them to the step.  For the first step, I die cut from white card stock the jeep, colored the pieces with Copic Sketch Markers, and set aside.  I used the Spring Grass die to cut from green card stock several pieces of grass and attached them to the three steps.  Using the Lawn Fawn Road Border Dies, I cut the road from gray and yellow card stock, glued them together, and attached onto the first step.  Then I attached the Jeep.

Using the Rustic Sign & Trees Die, I die cut the tree on the left side of the card with green and brown card stock, attached the pieces together, and added to the card base.  I then die cut the sign from the Woodlands Dies, colored it with Copic Sketch Markers, added foam tape to the back, and attached it in front of the tree.  That finished my card.

I love the card!  What do you think of it?

Hello from the CottageCutz Lighthouse

HELLO FROM THE COTTAGECUTZ LIGHTHOUSE

Hello, friends, and welcome to Guneaux Designs!  Today I am a guest designer for the Scrapping Cottage Blog.  My “Hello form the CottageCutz Lighthouse” card share features the CottageCutz Hello Phrase die, which is a newly released word die from the CottageCutz Expressions Plus collection.

My card also features other CottageCutz dies: the CottageCutz Lighthouse die, Stitched Wide Circle Frame Set dies, CottageCutz Lighthouse w/ Clouds die, and CottageCutz Seagulls in Flight Die.

These are the steps I took to make this “Hello from the CottageCutz Lighthouse” card:

  • Using the CottageCutz Lighthouse die, I cut out the lighthouse in white, red, blue, green, gray, and yellow card stock and assembled the pieces.
  • I used the CottageCutz Stitched Wide Circle Frame Set dies to cut several circle frames and a circle from a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of white card stock.

  • I glued the circle frames together to create dimension.

  • Using the circle that was cut out from the 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of white card stock, I colored a sky, rock cliff, and ocean on it.  I added Liquid Applique in selected areas and heat set it.

  • I cut out three “hello” sentiments using the CottageCutz Hello Phrase die and blue card stock.  I glued them together, covered the sentiment with VersaMark Ink and Clear Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

  • I cut out seagulls from the CottageCutz Lighthouse w/ Clouds Die and CottageCutz Seagulls in Flight Die, and added a touch of color to them.  I rolled the wings with my fingers.

  • I began assembling my card by cutting a 4-1/2″ x 5-3/4″ piece of blue card stock to which I glued the 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of white card stock with the circle cut out.

  • To this piece, I attached both the circle frames and colored circle inside of the cut out circle.

  • Lastly, I added the lighthouse, seagulls, and hello sentiment to the above piece. Then I attached it to a 4-3/4″ x 6″ white card base.

I hope you enjoy the card and are inspired by it!


These are the CottageCutz dies used to create my Hello from the CottageCutz Lighthouse card.

Jesus replied, “If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching.  My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.  He who does not love me will not obey my teachings.  These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.” 

CottageCutz Pram & Precious Dies

Hello, friends and thank you for stopping by.  Today I am a guest designer for the Scrapping Cottage Blog.  I am featuring one of the beautiful, recently released Expressions Plus Design Dies, “Precious” and the CottageCutz Pram Die from the April CottageCutz Baby Designs Release.  I think that the CottageCutz Pram & Precious Dies are a perfect match!

I love the new CottageCutz script dies as they are made with such a beautiful font.  They are also a wonderful size.  The “precious” die used on this card is approximate 4″W x 1″H.  And the darling vintage baby carriage, also showcased on this card, is an awesome die. One can make so many variations of the carriage by using different colors of card stock and other crafting products.  I wanted to dress this one up, so I added pearls and sparkling glitter.  May this card inspire you to try the CottageCutz Pram die to create such a beauty!

SUPPLIES USED AND STEPS FOR CREATING THE CARD

Supplies:

Steps:

  • Cut a 6″ x 12″ piece of pink card stock and fold it in the middle for the card base
  • Cut a 6″ x 6″ piece of designer paper with shades of pink and green
  • Adhere the 6″ x 6″ designer paper to the front of the card base
  • Using the CottageCutz Pram Die, cut the baby carriage from a piece of white card stock, and repeat with pink card stock

  • Adhere the pieces together (I attached one carriage to another to offset mine)

  • Cover the center piece of the carriage with white sparkly glitter
  • Add crafting pearls to the carriage

  • Attach this to the center of the card front (as seen in the first photo)
  • Cut out several pink flowers using the CottageCutz Tree of Nature Die

  • Cut out several green stems and leaves using the CottageCutz Grass, Trees & Vines die

  • Attach the flowers to the stems
