Lil Monsters Bash 1 Card

Hello everyone, Cheryl here with the CottageCutz Lil Monsters Bash 1, absolutely LOVE these lil monsters. 

For the monsters I cut them out in white, and then rubbed them in glue, then dipped them in Black Gala Glitz, and another glitz. Love the look this glitter glass gives to the little monsters, super fun and super easy to decorate them up!

The treat bag was colored with copic. The big bow was made using 3 different ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

For the border on the one layer I used the CottageCutz Spiderweb Border along 3 sides of my layer. Love the look of this.

CottageCutz Vintage Tin Ornament

Hello Papercrafters!  No doubt about it!  I just adore this sweet little Bear!  He is from the Homemade Christmas Gift Set along with that sweet Poinsettia.  I was in the Dollar General the other day perusing the Christmas Ornament isle and came across these vintage tart tins.  They are adorable, so I had to buy a selection of the different colors.  I knew I was going to alter them to my personal taste.
I used watercolor paper to create my bear.  Not only do I love the way it took the distress ink, but I love the texture it has.  It just adds a little "extra" to the attractiveness of the bear.  I also used a nice chunky glitter for his hat and rhinestones for the holly berries.
My bells are from my stash that I had back in my sewing days.  They have to be 20 years  They were tarnished somewhat.  I just painted them with glue and rolled them around in silver glitter.  I love how they look. 
I just love the Winter Pine Branch die.  It is my go-to die for wispy pine branches this season.  The little snowflakes were punched with a Martha Stewart punch.    Thanks for stopping by today.  I appreciate it.  Happy Crafting!  Here are the dies I used:

Halloween in frame

Hello everybodi, Vladka here!
I have to admit, this is my first Halloween creation. :) In our country it is not so popular, but it was fun to create something different. So I made this Halloween deco with wood frame, which I colored with white acrylic paint first and then also with black one.
I used different dies from Scrapping Cottage Halloween releaseHaunted CastleSpooky Ironwork Sign and  Spooky Iron Fence. I colored all die cuts with distress inks or with Copics and used also a little white tempera. When everything was done, I put everything together and for the final touch, I used a little gauze and wrapped it around one side of the frame.
Really funny dies to play with and I think it can be used for many occasions not just for Halloween. I need to use them again. :) Have a nice day!

Witchy Treats

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Kathy with you and today I have little Halloween treat bags I made using CottageCutz Large Confectionery Bag that I decorated with a new die from the Halloween Release called Fancy Witch Shoe.  These bags are perfect for the mini treats you give out for Halloween!  Wouldn't these be cute for children to give to their classmates?

I kept these real simple so it would be easy to make a bunch.  I used regular cardstock to die cut the bags, stamped them with a sentiment, and assembled them with scor-tape.  I then decorated them with the Fancy Witch Shoe die cut in black cardstock, mini black rick rack, and a bow.  To make the gluing easier, I used my Xyron Machine to glue the shoes to the bags.

Here's a little close up of the purple treat bag that has a mini Twix bar in it.

Here are the dies I used:

There's lots of different ways you can decorate these! I hope this gives you a little inspiration for Halloween!

CottageCutz Candle in the Window

Hi everyone it is Carol here today!  Christmas is fast approaching.  Time to start thinking about Christmas Cards.  Today is a creation using CottageCutz dies.  I must admit I had to get creative with my dies to achieve this look.  But I do love how it turned out!
To create this card, I started with the Victorian Window Die which you see in the middle.  My idea was to put the Christmas Cheer Candles in the window-but they were slightly to big and not in proportion.  I realized I needed a bigger window.  So I created this window by using the Classic Arched Window.
The Classic Arched Window was die cut, then cut in half lengthwise, and the top arch was cut off as well.  The two pieces were attached to either side of the Victorian Window to get the size that I was looking for.  This is just an example how you can get creative with your dies!!!
To complete the festive effect of the card, I added some Recollection Poinsettia, a Bow, and a Martha Stewart Border Punch at the top of the card.  The Winter Pine Branch was used as the leaves under the Poinsettia.  This was so fun to make and I just love how it turned out.  Thanks for visiting today.  I sure do appreciate it.  Happy Crafting!
