Cut N Up with CottageCutz Classic Witch

Hello everyone and HAPPY HALLOWEEN to all!!!

Todays card was designed with the CottageCutz Hocus Pocus Halloween Release, and I just LOVE all the dies in this release, they are super cute and perfect for Halloween projects/cards/albums/and layouts!

I used the CottageCutz "Classic Witch" and colored her with copic markers. She is easy to put together, and then I decided to use the frog on jar of eyeballs, he is too cute!!!

For the greenery I used the CottageCutz Ivy that came out in the CottageCutz "Victorian Garden" Release. I colored them with copics as well. I framed the one layer with the CottageCutz "Spiderweb Border" , and then stamped a Happy Halloween from Victorine Originals. Added a bow and some webbing from Really Reasonable Ribbon!!

Thank you all for looking and have a Happy Halloween to all!!!

Happy Halloween Banner /Measures 48"

Hello everyone, and Happy Wednesday to all!!!

Today I'm sharing a Happy Halloween Banner I designed using DCWV's Kit, Tons of Really Reasonable Ribbon, and Creative Inspirations Paints.

All Ribbons, Netting, and Trim can be found at Really Reasonable Ribbon. The Big Metal Charm Bugs are from Blue Moon. I used 2 of those on my Bows. For the Flowers I used Creative Inspirations Paints to color them up in Mango,Antique Silver, Pumpkin, and these are on the big flowers. For the Spiders I used Deliquesce Gold Crystal from Creative Inspirations Paints as well. I thought this gave the spiders a nice look.

Here is a close up of the bow treatment, and to see the flower using CIP's

For around the edges I used some antique lace in black, this is from my Antique stash. For the orange ruffle around the tags, I used the double ruffled edge ribbon and cut it down the center to give me 2 pieces, that way i didnt waste the other ruffle :)

I Put the entire banner together using a Hot Glue Gun! It was the easiest way to get this done fast!
Thank you for stopping by and looking!! I really enjoy reading all your wonderful comments!!!

Hugs to all,

Happy Halloweeen Sweet Kitty Card with Pull Tag

Hello everyone and Happy Monday to all!
My card for today was designed for Really Reasonable Ribbon, Victorine Originals,CottageCutz and Creative Inspirations Paints. Boy that wall a lot to say....hehehehehehe

Really Reasonable Ribbon and Victorine Originals are both having a Halloween Challenge, so I created my card for both of those. I just had to use CottageCutz darling Kitty on Pumpkin CottageCutz die, and colored them up with some Beautiful Creative Inspirations Paints.

I used the Black Gingham Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and then the Black Pearls too. These both can be found at the RRR Shop.  I also used the Scor-Tape to make the pocket for the tag that pulls out, and it too can be found here at RRR Store!

I love that Victorine Originals carries a ton of different Halloween Stamps, and I went with the "Happy Halloween" sentiment, and the "Bat". 

The Design Paper used is from Graphic45, and then I used some random polka dot in orange and white to match up with Graphic45.

The Creative Inspirations Paints color I used are:
Pumpkin, Mango, Coal , Onyx,Antique Silver, Green Olive, Evergreen 

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

I love using a TON of RRR in my Mini Albums, I think it really makes the albums pop! I also love this La Creme Design paper that I picked up at the dcwv 1.00 sale back when. I added some flowers,stickers, and CottageCutz Lace envelope to this mini. I also made a couple of interactive pages, with the family page being 1 of those! Lots of pictures can be added.

these 2 pages I left for just a couple photo's to be added, I figured there is so many spots for photo's in this album that this would be ok.

For the backside I used the CottageCutz Lace Envelope like I do on most of my mini's since I received this darling envelope. I think its perfect for adding more photo's , Journaling spots, or to add a note.

Sweeet Floral Delight

Hello everyone, I have some SUPER EXCITING News to share today! I am now part of Creative Inspirations Paints Design Team, and today i'm sharing my 1st card made using CI's Paints, Glitter, and Glitz! wooohoooo 
I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE using these CI's shimmery paints, and I used them on just about everything on my card here today :) hehehehehe 
I stamped with them,distressed,colored and inked up edges.

Tutu Pink
Pink Highlights
Green Olive

For the tag I used Tutu Pink, I just brushed it on to cover all the white. For the oval frame I used Tan. I love all the shimmer the paints give, they are beautiful!

My BIG bow is Silky Crush Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon, I used the Pom Pom Mini Trim in ivory, then used pink lace, and crocheted lace on my card.

My entire card was put together using Helmar Premium Craft Glue, Quickfix Tape Runner, and Zapdots.

Next on the flowers, I stamped the pink ones in Blush, heat set, then colored with Tutu Pink, and then cut them out with dies. for the edges of the flowers I used Resplendence Angel Dust from Creative Inspirations Paints. this is sooo pretty and gives a lot of glitz for cards and projects. All I did was brush some glue on the edges and then dipped the one side of the flower into the jar, and then tapped off the excess. 

Now for my brown flowers I stamped them in Chocolate and then heat set, and then colored with carmel. I repeated 

For the Branches, I used Evergreen and Green Olive to create the look for them, and then punched out the branches.

I used the Jeweled Inspirations for the centers of my flowers :)
For my Crocheted Lace I painted it with Pink Highlights, and for the card stock I painted with Carmel and Tan, also used them both on the CottageCutz Tea Time doily!

Make it Monday/Anything Goes

I am Honored to be a part of Creative Inspirations Wonderful DT and absolutely LOVE working with the Paints and glitz. Thank you for looking and hope you have a lovely day!!
