I am not going to lie-I love CottageCutz dies. They are just so much fun to play with. Today I have used both the Flat Bed Truck with Accessories and Cat on Pumpkin Die (don't let the title fool you-the pumpkin in the small square is from that set).
This truck was piece together after cutting all the elements out with cardstock. I distressed the truck with green ink and it is the same ink I distressed the paper in. It's Studio G from Walmart but it doesn't have a color number or name on it. It's the darkest of the three green inks they carry in the 97 cent bin-I've been raiding it lately. I happen to love those little pads of ink-they're juicy! To make my background I used a simple evergreen tree and stamped the white cardstock with this green ink and then die cut the pieces.
My paper is from K & Company. The autumn sentiment is something from my stash. I used both the large round and large scallop spellbinders die. The scalloped borders are a Martha Stewart punch I had for a long time and I think this was the first I used it. I stickled my edges with crystal stickles and this was a breeze to make.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great crafting day. See you in the gallery.
