Halloween Release Design Team Samples (Part 1)

Hello CottageCutz friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit today. We are sampling DT cards from the Halloween release.

There are 22 new designs in this release. So many whimsical images that are perfect for your Halloween card-making. They are currently on sale with 30% off individual dies. The sale is just for a limited time so hurry over to the online store to make your selections.

Group Posts give you the opportunity to see more card samples from the Design Team. We have 4 samples for your viewing pleasure today.

Card 1: The first sample for today is from Pam MacKay. She created such a cute fun-fold outdoor scene in a sidestep design. The left side panel uses the Spooky Tree Gnome, and she has the gnome sleeping under a nighttime sky. She used designer paper for the starry sky.  
The right side features the Haunted Ghost House die in a graveyard setting. The gravestones are created with the Halloween Victorian Gate dies, the fence is from the Spooky Fence Mini. She finished off her scene by adding pumpkins and her sentiment is from cardstock.  

Card 2: Our next sample is from Kristine Breach. Since all of you don't make Halloween cards, we thought we would bring a sample using the Halloween dies but for another occasion. This fun birthday card features the Halloween Victorian Gate, the Spooky Truck and the Spooky Kitties dies.
For the truck she simply changed the color of the truck, used fun colors for the hubcaps (love these) and the pumpkins are colored in the trendy teal shade that is so popular right now. The kitties are done in lighter shades to complement the subtle colors of her card. She placed the images on a white panel using the Wacky Stitched Rectangle die.

Card 3: Our next sample is from Melinda Beltran. If you like to make multiples this design is perfect for you. She created a CAS card using the Trick or Treat Phrase, Web and the Spooky Tree Gnome dies. She layered her phrase and added some glitter to make it pop on the background. 

Sample 4: The last sample for today is one that I (Mary Marsh) created. We know that we have scrapbookers out there that follow our Blog and purchase our dies. A friend asked me if I could put together a Halloween themed scrapbook page. So, I decided to go out of my comfort zone and try a scrapbook layout. I have been inspired by Jen Hartsgrove since she created a couple recently. 

For the layout, I used the Candy & BucketCute Ghosts and Trick or Treat Phrase dies. I wanted the layout to be fun and not spooky to complement the photos she gave me. For the title, I used the Stitched Alphabet and the Stitched Numbers die and cut them in bright colors. 

The background papers, the too cute to spook phrase and the bottom ghost panel are all from the Echo Park Halloween Party collection. On the left side panel, I added a couple of leaves leftover from another project using the Fall Leaves die. I added the whimsical ghosts, my trick or treat phrase and a few bats to complete my layout.  

I hope you have enjoyed the samples for today and that we have given you some ideas on ways to use these new dies. We will have another group post next Sunday with more DT samples. 

The team will be posting all week on the Blog & YouTube so make sure you check back each day for ideas. There is still lots of time to order your dies and get cards made for Halloween.
