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
  • Add pink stickles to the center of the flowers
  • Add the stems and flowers to the bottom and left side of the card
  • Cut out the “precious” sentiment from pink card stock using the CottageCutz Precious Die and add it to the top center of the card

  • Cut out a flower using the CottageCutz 3-D Flower #7 die
  • Shape with a stylus the three smallest flowers, cover them with a white glitter, adhere them together, and add Prills to the center

  • Attach the flower to the bottom, right of the card front

That finishes the card, and there are more photos below.  Let me know what your thoughts are about this card by leaving comments.  I love reading comments!

Hero Arts Mermaid

Hello, my friends!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!  Thank you for stopping by Guneaux Designs and, if you leave a comment, I am very grateful to you!  Today I have a card share featuring the newly released Hero Arts Mermaid.  Mermaid cards are not my norm; however, I decided to give it a try as I wanted to participate in a Splitcoaststampers’ (SCS) Free For All Challenge hosted by the remarkable artist, Robin Clendenning.  Her challenge was to create a card that represents “What’s In Your Garden”.  A mermaid was one of her examples, so I chose that to challenge myself.

Here is the Hero Arts Mermaid card:

I received the new Hero Arts Mermaid stamp in the mail yesterday and was not sure how to showcase it.  Therefore, I checked YouTube and found Ilina Crouse’s video on coloring the image. I tried to replicate her work!  I know, no one can replicate her wonderful artwork. But I tried.  Ilina, thanks for your inspiration.

I hope you enjoyed the card.  If interested, you can see the SCS comments HERE.

Hebrew 6:13-15

The certainty of God’s promise:  “When God made his promise to Abraham, since there was no one great for him to swear by, he swore by himself, saying, ‘I will surely bless you and give you many descendants.’  And so after waiting patiently, Abraham received what was promised.” 

Papertrey Ink Lovely Lace

Hello, crafters!  Thanks for stopping by Guneaux Designs.  My card share for you showcases Papertrey Ink Lovely Lace, which is a “Make it Market Mini Kit”.  The Kit includes Papertrey Ink Lovely Lace stamp set & index label, Papertrey Ink Lovely Lace die collection, Papertrey Ink Lovely Lace stencil collection (set of 3), and Papertrey Ink Lovely Lace paper collection (18 A2 sheets).  I used one of the Lovely Lace stencils in the kit to create this card.

I used the following stencil from the kit, and sponged Tim Holtz’s Oxide Inks onto a piece of white card stock.

After sponging on the colors over the stencil, I used the Spellbinders Curved Borders Two dies to cut off the upper right corner.

Then I stamped my sentiment at the top right corner of a white A2 card base.  The sentiment is from the Papertrey Ink Pen & Ink stamp set.

Paertrey Ink Lovely Lace

I used foam tape to attach the floral piece to the card base.

See the paper rose at the bottom left of the card?  I made it with the Heartfelt Creations Botanical Rose Stamp Set and Botanical Wings Die Set and attached it to the card.  To finish the card, I added a few sequins.

I am submitting this card for the Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge for this week.

May you find inspiration from this card!  Thanks for stopping by Guneaux Designs!
