Cottage Greetings: 3 Different Looks

It is unusual for me to be posting this late in the day, but I wanted to share these cards today, and haven't had time until now to finish up the post. This morning, we had our big ultrasound for the baby, the one where you find out the gender. Our baby was being a little stubborn today, and the tech thought it was a boy, but we are still unsure. We may find out for sure later, or it may be a surprise on delivery day! It is still always a neat thing to get a peek at your baby! Now, onto the cards...

I recently offered the Cottage Greetings Card Kit as a class, and everyone who purchased the kit and stamp set also received 3 additional cards that showed other ways to use the stamp set. I tried to make the cards simple so that they could be easily duplicated, yet beautiful so that you would want to duplicate them! I thought that today I would share the cards, along with the products I used to make them.

The first card uses the Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack, and I used my Blender Pens to color in the flowers. If you bought the stamp set to use with the Cottage Greetings Card Kit, you might have missed those little flowers, but they are a cute addition to any card!

Stamps: Cottage Greetings
Ink: Watermelon Wonder
Paper: Watermelon Wonder, Whisper White, Cherry on Top DSP Stack
Accessories & Tools: Blender Pens

The next card features our Kraft Cardstock. This one is super simple, but I think it's my favorite! It was the first time I had used this cardstock, and it's definitely going to be used again! I love the look of the black on the Kraft!

Stamps: Cottage Greetings
Ink: Tuxedo Black
Paper: Kraft
Accessories & Tools: Metallics Sequin Assortment

The final card probably looks the fanciest, but it, too, was really simple! I am loving the Designer Series Paper Stacks this year - the patterns are really pretty! One tip - I placed dots of Tombow Multipurpose Glue behind the rhinestones to hold the vellum in place. That way you don't see the adhesive!

Stamps: Cottage Greetings
Ink: Tuxedo Black
Paper: Smoky Slate, Vellum, Brights Designer Series Paper Stack
Accessories & Tools: Rhinestone Basic Jewels

The Cottage Greetings stamp set is one of my favorites in this catalog. I hope you like it too!
