Hello, friends, and thanks for stopping by Guneaux Designs! Today I am a guest designer for the Scrapping Cottage Blog, and I have a card for you that showcases the lovely CottageCutz Gladiolus Flower and the newly released CottageCutz Expression Plus Design die, “hello” .
The new CottageCutz Plus Designs dies (i.e., word dies) are fantastic! I love the script design, and the die cuts are a great size. For a limited time, these wonderful dies are 25% off!
My color selections of card stock and coloring were selected to coincide with the Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge for yesterday. These are the colors: Peekaboo Peach, Calypso Coral, and Always Artichoke, which are Stampin’ Up! colors.
I created the card by first stamping with black ink the lovely CottageCutz Gladiolus Flower image onto white card stock and coloring it with copics that closely match the above colors. I used the matching die to cut out the floral image.
Afterwards, I decided I wanted to create an inlay with the image, so I used the negative of the floral image and a die from the CottageCutz Cross-Stitched Rectangle Set to cut a rectangle. Additionally, my butterfly from the same floral stamp and die set was on this panel and I wanted to include it.
My next step was to use a stencil and oxide inks to create this panel from white card stock. I decided I wanted a piece of designer paper as a mat for the panel. I attached the mat to the panel and adhered it to my card base.
I created a frame to go around the floral panel with two of the CottageCutz Cross-Stitched Rectangle Set dies. I attached foam tape to the frame and added it to the card.
Then I added foam tape to the floral image inlay panel and attached it inside the frame.
To complete the card, I added one of the Expression Plus Design scrip dies, “hello”, to the upper left of my card.
I hope you draw inspiration from my card, and leave me a comment! I love reading comments!
These are the CottageCutz stamps and dies used on the card:

Firm Reliance on Divine Providence!
“Then Jesus said to his host, ‘When you give a luncheon or dinner, do not invite your friends, your brothers or relatives, or your rich neighbors; if you do, they may invite you back and so you will be repaid. But when you give a banquet invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.’ “
