Hello to all !!!!

This is Anita here with spring flowers for you. These flowers are so pretty that they can make any project look awesome.
But before that , let me show you some new Expression Plus dies from CottageCutz recently released at the store.
There is a phrase for each occasion. Here is a video showing the different phrase.

Here is my card with 3D flowers.

To make this card, cut out the flowers from 3D flower#4 and colour with Archival inks.

Emboss the flowers on an embossing pad with a tool

Cut the stamen centre as shown and roll to make the centres

Cut a card base 4.75" x 6.75" and add splatters of Worn Lipstick distress oxide ink.

Cut out the leaves and colour 

Add a panel with pattern paper and round stitched rectangular frame. 
Add a sentiment and some label tags

Add the flowers and leaves.

 Prills are added to flower centres.

Cut 6 frames using stitched oval die. Adhere the three frames together one, for each card.
Adhere the large oval on the card base. Add sequins and add the transparent sheet cut to oval size.

Hello to all !!!
Before I show you what is in there for you, let me take you to the CottageCutz store where our Anniversary sale is going on and you can save upto 50% for just this week only. Isn't that wonderful !!!

Now on to today's project. Have ever thought that how good it would be if your stamp would have been a little more bigger or if you could increase the design size. Well, you can do that and I call it EXTENDING YOUR STAMP.

This is very well featured in this card here where from one stamp , I have build up a cluster of flowers so that it looks that the stamped image is really bigger in size.
Do check it out here.

All the flowers stamp and die combo that can be used to create this sort of card can be found here

Stamp out the images in Versafine onyx black and cut with coordinating die.

Use one of the die cut image as a mask and stamp two images on the left and right side of the mask

Remove the mask. This is how the card panel should like.

Arrange all the die cut and stamped images on the card panel to plan out the design

Colour all the images with Zig Real Brush Pens

Arrange the coloured images on the card panel popping some of them with 3D foam tape.

Adhere the card panel on green mat layer and then on the card base 

This is how the card looks like. One stamp can give a big cluster of flowers.

You can build up a similar card from the many stamp and die flower sets . You can check them out here.

I hope you will create many spring cards. Thanks for being with me.

Hello dear friends,

How is everyone doing!!!!! I hope you will have a super crafty Sunday today.
Have you ever wondered what a range of paper embellishments can be created with die cuts.

We are always short of tags, mini cards or even decorative embellishments and try to make quick simple ones . So here I have five creative paper embellishments that can be used as tags, cards and even for scrapbook layouts.
CottageCutz has a wide range of dies and you can play with them to create these super cute things. And the best part is you use all your paper scraps that you have been hoarding all this while. So have a look at these. Get inspired and start playing with your dies.

Aren't they super cute!!! And I had fantastic time playing with my die cuts.
I gathered all my paper  scraps and grouped them in shades of various colours. Then I picked one floral die and cut many flowers from one shade.
Similarly , If I chose a stitched die, I cut many die cuts of different colours from paper scrap. 
Cut several designs in many shades and layer them with foam tape. You can create hundreds of designs. 

Here are the dies I used for my embellishments.

You can check all the amazing collection of dies at the CottageCutz Store.
Do share your views on these pretty paper creations. Thanks for stopping by.
