Happy Labor Day friends!

The Scrapping Cottage is having a HUGE LABOR DAY SALE going on right now -- save up to 65%!  Great time to stock up on your favorite basic dies or nab some of the uber CUTE CottageCutz dies... even the Li'l Bluebird stamps/dies are on sale!!

Now I have some MOO-velous Monday inspiration for you!  

Have you seen these adorable CottageCutz pocket peekers?!  I've used this cute Farm Cow Peeker, and the Peeker Pocket along with the Hello w/ Shadow die.

I've been asked to Guest Design for the Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenges for the month of September, so this is my sample for CC#964 for this coming week which is

Copper Clay
 Moody Mauve 
Misty Moonlight

The colors in my photos below do look a bit off from the color challenge, but I DID use Misty Moonlight for my card base, and I substituted Pecan Pie for the Copper Clay.  


 I cut my card base at 6" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4" for a side-folding card.

I used another piece of MM cardstock and stamped a denim looking stamp (Your Kindness background stamp from La-La Land Crafts) on it with some grey ink (as I didn't have the Misty Moonlight ink and it gave it a more subtle effect).  Then I die cut it using the Peeker Pocket 

To back my pocket and to resemble the brown/tan stitching on jeans, I put a piece of Pecan Pie c.s. behind the pocket and cut it slightly smaller and then glued it behind the denim one.

I cut a piece of patterned paper (from the SU! Earthen Elegance pack as it reminded me of a sort of rustic cowboy print) at 5-3/4" x 4"and adhered to card front.  

I cut a piece of Pecan Pie ginham (from the Glorious Ginghams pack) at 5-3/8" x 3-5/8" and adhered to card front.

Next, I punched 2 small holes at top of pocket and added some rustic metal brads, then glued the sides and bottom of pocket to the lower gingham layer.

I die cut my Farm Cow Peeker from White, Sand, and Pecan Pie and then I cut small pieces of the Moody Mauve, Blackberry Bliss, and Mossy Meadow and die cut just the flowers and leaves.  

I added some color/shading with Copic markers and Distress Oxide inks, and added white highlights on flowers & eyes with a white gel pen.  Then I assembled the cute cow and tucked the head/body behind the pocket and his legs on top.

How stinkin' adorable is she?! ☺

I had this li'l buckle with some engraved detail and some braided twine that I thought would be cool on here, so I attached it with some double-sided tape behind the cow's head.

And lastly, I die cut a 'Hello' from the Moody Mauve c.s. and adhered to the pocket.  

Thanks for taking a PEEK!  Go check out these adorable PEEKERS and grab your favorites or take advantage of this AWESOME LABOR DAY SALE going on to stock up!!
