Winter Wonderland

 Hello everyone, and Happy Monday to all!
Cheryl here today, to share another Christmas card made using the Beautiful CottageCutz Christmas Dies.
For my image I used CottageCutz Reindeer & Tree Ornament, which I cut out using white card stock, and then colored using copic markers in G28(for trre), E31,E37,E57(Reindeer), BG000 for the swirls, but then I covered them up using polar white flower soft. LOVE the look of the ornament here.
For the branches I used a punch, and for the circles I used a circle die. Ribbon is from my stash,and is the satin, and velvet. Dp is " SNOW VILLAGE! I have to say I LOVE this Christmas Collection!!! Talk about beautiful design paper, it has so many to choose from, and the deer is one of my favorites :)

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!
hugs to all,

Basket was cut out of the kraft cardstock and distressed with Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo Distress Inks. All die cuts are also colored with different Distress Inks.

Winter Sleigh Ride/Black Friday Sale

 Hello everyone, and Happy Friday to all!
Today I wanted to share 1 of the cards I made for Splitcoaststampers Challenge using the Beautiful CottageCutz Winter Sleigh Ride Scene. AlsoThe Scrapping Cottage is having its BLACK FRIDAY SALE right now through December 3rd, perfect time to stock up on your WISH LIST items

This card was super simple to make and took me no time at all.

I cut a piece of dp, and then cut my CottageCutz Winter Sleigh Ride Scene, and sprayed glue, and added glitter, super easy! Then attached the scene to the design paper.

Net I cut a piece of white dp, that has some kind of snowflakes and such, its very faint, but beautiful in person. I used a ruler and cut the shaped piece so it would match the sketch for today. I added my ribbon, and sentiment, and lastly my bow and brad.

I absolutely LOVE all the Christmas CottageCutz dies that were released this year. There are so many beautiful ones to choose from. If you haven't had a chance to take a peek, you might want to stop by the Scrapping Cottage and see :) Have fun!

This ornament uses the darling Reindeer W/Scarf die.  Again the Fur Trees, Poinsettia & Holly, and Christmas Greeting dies were used to decorate the tin.  A bow made with seam binding was tied on top of the original twine for the hanging loop.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Remember if you have older ornaments that you don't use anymore, you can change them into something beautiful again with just a few dies.  Don't be afraid to experiment.  Until next time.......Happy Crafting.  Here are the dies used.:

CottageCutz Focus Week-Holiday Treat Holders

Hello everyone and welcome to the final day of our Holiday Treat Holder Focus week!  It's Carol here today.  For the last project I wanted to share this really sweet Owl in Pumpkin die.  This treat holder is an altered Glassine bag.  To create, just use some pretty fall papers, a spellbinders oval die, and a Martha Stewart Border punch glue to the top and bottom.  A little seam binding ribbon and a tiny clothespin will top off the embellishments.  Aren't these cute? 
There small but no worries.  You want to know why?   They are going to be placed at the table at each place setting and they will hold a "little" treat.  Want to know what it is????  lol  Well how about some movie tickets for Thanksgiving evening.  Isn't that fun.  After dinner, football, and washing dishes what better way to spend the evening watching a great movie.  This little holder is the perfect surprise.  Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Sure to appreciate it.  Be sure to leave a comment for your last chance at the prize today.  Happy Crafting!

CottageCutz Focus Week-Holdiay Treat Holders

 Hello friends and crafters. It's Carol here.  Today is a fun project share for the CottageCutz Focus week featuring Holiday Treat Holders.   These fun treat boxes are what is called a Pyramid Box which creates this fun tree shaped box.  The front of the box opens once you untie the ribbon at top and can be filled with goodies and/or a gift card.  Super cute and a fun way to give a gift.
 This box uses the CottageCutz Wind Up Mouse die.  All the poinsettia are the CottageCutz Poinsettia and Holly die.  The December 25th stamp is from this year's Michael's dollar bin.  The star is a marvey punch on gold glitter paper.
 The tree bases are empty thread spools.  They are altered with gold glitter washi tape and glued in the middle on the bottom of the boxes.  The trim around the box is a Martha Stewart Border punch with gold bling glued on top.
 This box features the CottageCutz Holiday Reindeer die.  All dies were cut with various colored cardstock and paper pieced.
 The last box features the Snowman Cupcake Die from Cottagecutz.  He is super adorable.  I love his peppermint buttons.  He was shaded with a couple Copic markers in B000 and B001
 This is how the box looks when it is untied and opened.  It holds a good bit of items depending on what you place inside.
Thank you so much for stopping by for some Holiday Treat Holder inspiration.  It was a pleasure to share with you some ideas.  Until next time.....Happy Crafting.  Here are the dies used.

Be sure to leave a comment now through the 25th for a chance to WIN a Gift Certificate to the Scrapping Cottage Store! We always enjoy reading your wonderful and sweet comments! Thank you all!!
