One Die Used Five Ways - CottageCutz Spring Tree of Life

Hello and happy Wednesday everyone! I hope today finds you happy and in a creative spirit.

In today's video, I've demonstrated five different cards using the same new spring 2018 die, Spring Tree of Life. I really love CottageCutz's single pass dies and when I saw this one in the new release, I couldn't wait to use it.

Why do I love this style so much? Let me count the ways. First, they are super quick to cut. Just one pass through your machine and they're ready to use on your project. Second, they have such amazing detail! The art is always exquisite. Third, you can use them in so many ways and get so many different presentations out of them. How many? A lot. The video today shows five but I'm sure you can think of even more. The photo below shows my favorite of the five. I flocked the die cut for a soft and unique look.

I hope you get some great ideas to inspire you in your creative journey. Have a fantastic day!

Birthday Cattitude Tag

Hello everyone! I hope you've had a great President's Day!

Today's project features the Art Impressions Cat Mouthful set that I recently purchased. I just love this cat and his sassy expression!

The cool thing about this set is that it comes with a bunch of accessory items you can put in his mouth and hand. It's kind of like the old fashioned paper dolls.

I made a custom pocket for the back to hold all the accessories not being used so they don't get lost.

Spring Floral Gratitude

Hello and Happy Valentines Day! I'm here again with another video tutorial for CottageCutz. This time I'm showing off one of the largest dies in the new Spring 2018 Release called Fresh Spring Floral.

My thank you card includes the Expressions Plus Grateful die at the bottom. Inside, I used the Thanks Expressions die. All three dies are available in the store.

This is a pretty simple A2 card base in black card stock. The black background makes the pastel colors in the wreath pop. The white frame was created with an embossing pen and white embossing powder. The raised glossy frame gives it an almost nostalgic look, like the old fashioned photo albums with white writing. The Grateful Expressions Plus sentiment is cut from textured red foil card stock to add a little glamour without competing with the wreath.

I hope you'll take a few minutes to watch the card construction tutorial. As always, just click on the YouTube thumbnail below. If you have trouble using the thumbnail, you can also follow this link directly: Fresh Floral Gratitude Video Tutorial

That's it from me today. Thanks for visiting!
