CottageCutz Spooky Ghost House Halloween Card

Greetings everyone it's Carol.  Today's creation features beautiful Halloween CottageCutz dies in an exciting array of shapes.  The main focal point of the card is CottageCutz Spooky Ghost House.  Isn't this fabulous.  Just cut out your die on black card stock and mount it on a piece of orange cardstock that is 1/4" larger than the die to make it pop!
For the CottageCuz Halloween Tag the die was cut on orange glitter paper.  After die cutting, just take the die and trace around the outside on black paper and cut with scissors.  Mount the orange glitter die cut on top and you have this awesome contrast.
The green scarecrow is the CottageCutz Harvest Scarecrow.  The Gold with Brush Corduroy distress inked scarecrow is CottageCutz Garden Scarecrow.   The top border is CottageCutz Graveyard Border.
 Thank you for checking out this Spooktacular Halloween card today.  Sure do appreciate.  Be sure to check out the latest CottageCutz Halloween Release for all you Halloween Papercrafting needs.  Until next time, Happy Crafting.  These are the CottageCutz dies used:

Get your Witchi on

Hi all! Vladka here today!

Fall is here and also Halloween will be here soon. You can find a lot of inspiration here on CottageCutz blog and I have one for you today too. 
I used this Witch on Broom. She is on her way to cool witch party. I made this background with watercolor paper and different Distress Inks. I started with Peacock Feather, put it on my craft sheet, added some water and put paper on, to get some splodges. then I dried it with heat gun and used another Distress Ink, this time Chipped Sapphire and repeat the whole step. The last Distress Ink which I used was Black Soot. After everything was dry I used also white tempera and brush to made some paint splatters which look like stars
The moon is made the same way as background, but this time I used just Weathered Wood Distress Ink and after that cut the moon out with circle die. The Witch is cut out of black cardstock and sentiment was created in Word and printed on paus paper. Yellow stars and clouds are cut out with Baby Sleeping on Moon die. This is my card for today. Have fun.
And be sure to leave a comment on all of our post from 9/8/15- 9/23/15 on the CottageCutz BLOG as we are doing a GIVEAWAY to 1 lucky person! You can WIN 2 of the NEW Halloween dies. Here you can find more.

Butterfly Themed Pocket Letter Featuring CottageCutz Dies

Hello everyone.  Today it's Carol with a project share featuring tons of CottageCutz dies.  Pocket Letters are a wonderful way to use your CottageCutz dies.  They fit perfectly in or on the pockets of these plastic sleeves.
 The middle pocket uses CottageCutz Ornate Fence.  Pocket #3 is CottageCutz Flowerpot Mini, and Flower Mini.  I used some Butterfly Embellishments.
For the center of the pocket letter, Pocket #4 has CottageCutz Daisy Showers.  The Center Pocket is a shaker and it features the CottageCutz Springtime Window.    Pocket #6 features CottageCutz Flower Bouquet Jar.

 This is a tag created to dangle on the Pocket Letter.  It's a blackboard tag that comes from Michael's.  A Cricut alphabet cartridge was used to create the name.  The CottageCutz Victorian Frames was used to decorate the tag.  The butterfly is CottageCutz Garden Delight.  As you can see, CottageCutz dies are absolutely perfect for creating Pocket Letters.

Thank you so much for stopping by to check out this Pocket Letter.   Until next time, Happy Crafting.  See you soon!
