Pretty Vases - Scrapping Cottage

Good Morning Scrapping Cottage Family,

We are still showcasing the beautiful dies from the Mother's Day release.  They are so fantastic and can be used for a variety of occasions.

Also, there is a big sale going on in the online store.  You can save up to 70% on dies.  Lots to choose from so take some time to go shopping!  Now is the time to add to your collection!

Now on to today's card!  This card is so great for the spring with lots of flower in beautiful vases!

Design Steps:
 1.  Cut all of the pieces in white card stock using the Flowers for Mom die
 2.  Use your markers and color all of the pieces.  I used Copics: G40, 43, 46 - YR16, Y18, and R46
 3.  Assemble the flowers and then arrange them into the vases
 4.  When I assembled the vases I used tape to adhere the flowers to the vases
 5.  Use an A2 whtie card base, cut a piece of white card stock slightly smaller and run through a dotted embossing folder.  Cut a piece of DP 4 x 5 1/4 and cut out 3 2 inch squares using the Nested Stitched Scallop Square Set.  Glue the DP to the embossed card stock and then to the front of the card.  Pop up all of the vases in the squares, add the sentiment and bow

Rainbow Flowers - Pink and Main

Hello Pink and Main Fans!

The stamp I am using today is one of the new release floral stamps.  It is a very large background stamp with tons of whimsical flowers on it.
Design Steps:

  1. Use an A2 black card stock base.  Round the corners with a corner rounder punch.  Cut a slightly smaller piece of white card stock and round it's corners too. Then glue it to the black card base
  2. Cut a piece of white card stock 4 x 5 1/4 and round the corners.  Use TH Oxide inks and sponge on the colors.  I used Worn Lipstick, Peeled Paint, Fossilized Amber and Broken China.
  3. Let the inks dry and then splatter on water drops and dry completely or heat set
  4. Use a non static pad and pat down the whole card
  5. Ink up the Floral Background stamp with Versa Mark ink and then apply black embossing powder.  Heat set the powder
  6. Cut out the happy in black card stock using the Pink and Main Happy For You die.  And then using the same die cut out the outline in vellum
  7. Glue the happy to the front of the card
  8. Stamp the Birthday from the Happy For You stamp set in Versa Mark ink and apply white embossing powder.  Heat set the powder
  9. Layer Birthday onto vellum and glue to the card as shown
