Lil Monsters Bash 1

Hello Friends!!!!

 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 orange colored 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. I used the black gingham, and the orange double ruffled edge ribbon. The cording trim is discontinued from RRR.

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

Happy Birthday

Hello everyone, and Happy Monday to all! So for today's card I used all Victorine Originals Stamps to create this Birthday Card that I will give to dear Hubby for his Birthday on the 6th of November.

I did also create my card for Victorine Originals Fall Challenge that is going on right now. We were to make a Fall or Thanksgiving Card or project, and I thought how perfect to get a card made for my husband for his birthday. I LOVE the Moose (2727-J) Moose , I stamped him in SU! Craft ink brown. However it looks black....heheheeh, then I added some Clear CIP's embossing powder and heated it up. Next I came in and colored with 3 copic colors. For the branches I stamped Victorine Originals (2956-J) Pine Branch in different distressed inks. The Happy Birthday is from the set (10517-X) Elegant Sayings The dp I used is EP, and the Ribbons are both from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I used the Brown Diamond Satin, and the wrinkled Ribbon Textured 2 tone in Brown /Antique Gold

Hope you will join us at Victorine Originals for our Fall/Thanksgiving Challenge found HERE!
Have a lovely day and thank you for stopping by!

Santa's Retreat Bendy Card

Ok I'm on a ROLL making these Bendy cards....hehehehe they are super fun to make, and the most time spent creating these, is on creating little scenes.I love love love making them, and my next one is going to be another Fall scene :) All dies are CottageCutz dies.

Lots of CottageCutz dies used on this one here!!!
CottageCutz Mouse with Candy Cane

I started this card by cutting a TON of these tree's from the Penguin die. I wanted the look of a forest for Santa's Retreat!  I figured it was the perfect name for this card, as its all about Santa and a relaxing place for him!!

Of course Santa needs some friends at his retreat, or around his retreat, so I decided to use the darling CottageCutz Reindog too, he is super CUTE!!!

For the inside middle, I figured I would use Santa's Chair and have his boots , jacket and cap there too. And to top it all off, I used dear Sweet Santa Peeker on the top!

I really had a LOT of FUN making this card. This one did take me awhile to create, as I had to cut sooo many tree's and cutz and coloring, but in the end it was well worth the effort I put into it.

Thank you all for looking and have a lovely day!!! OOoooo and if you make one of these I WANT To SEE it, so be sure to leave me a message and link to your card!!

Hello everyone, YEP another Bendy Card today.....hehehehehe Yep I am absolutely ADDICTED to making these!! Not only are they super easy to make, but super FUN too!!

Today's Card is Called
"Happy Haunting Halloween"
If you are wanting to make one of these Bendy Folds, please see my VIDEO TUTORIAL HERE!! My card for today was created using different Really Reasonable Ribbon, and the Black Webbing trim. I will list all Really Reasonable Ribbon supplies below.

To start with I used the Bendy Fold technique,
 then added some awesome Graphic45 Halloween Design Paper for the background. Next I decided to use lots of different CottageCutz Halloween dies. They were colored with copics and some were distressed. I planned in my head what I thought I wanted to do, create a pathway to the Haunted House :) I thought it would be fun, and I surely had a ton creating this one!!!
CottageCutz Dies Used:

Next I used Really Reasonable Ribbons black Webbing on the inside of both front panels. I love the look this gives to the inside.I also made some super tiny bows, with the black polka dot ribbon, and I also used the orange gingham ribbon too..
Really Reasonable Ribbon Supplies:

On the inside you can see the netting more so on the left. I also used the stamps from StampinUp! this is an older set, but love the sentiments, and they fit perfectly for this card.

The Ghost and Boo are some little extra's that were in a package I had in my Halloween drawer, so I thought they would make a perfect addition to this card.

The little tiny pumpkins throughout the inside of my card are from Really Reasonable Ribbons Pumpkin Trim. I just cut them out, and glued them on.

Hello everyone, Yep another Bendy Card to share today!! I am LOVING these, as they are super fun to create. This one was created for Really Reasonable Ribbon's "Autumn Leaves" challenge. I love the look of fall, when all the leaves change colors and everything looks so pretty.

Ok on to my card. I used Really Reasonable Ribbon Green and Brown Gingham for my card today. I also used Really Reasonable Ribbons Brown Sweetheart Blossoms, and Scor-tape to put this together.

I used TONS of CottageCutz dies for my card here lots are from the Harvest Release found Here

CottageCutz Spring Tree

I LOVE Acorn Owl, as he is super CUTE and Easy to make. I also LOVE the Hedgehog Mini, and sunflower Mini. I will be making another Autumn Leaves Card, just have to design it a little different from this one.

Most pieces were distressed and others were colored with copics. For the Hedgehog I used Viva Pearl Pen for the eye and the nose.The mushrooms,leaves and grass were all dusted. The tree's were cut out with colored card stock. and then I added some flower soft to those, to give it a fall look. My Acorn Owl was colored with copics.

Elegant Snow Swept Bendy Card for RRR Hop

Hello everyone and Welcome to 
♥♥♥Really Reasonable Ribbon's♥♥♥
October Hop!
You should have arrived here from Tracey's Blog!  If not you will want to start out at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog so that you wont miss anything.

I hope you have enjoyed our Hop so far today as there is a LOT of inspiration using the October Ribbon Kit from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I just LOVE all the ribbons in this months assortment!
Today's card is called "Elegant Snow Swept Bendy Scene"
 This card was inspired by a sweet crafting friend Carol. She created a Bendy card, and I fell in LOVE with this fold! I have now created a Halloween ,Christmas and Fall one of these, and this one I am in Love with. I think this months ribbon club was perfect for my card.
I used the Pink and the lace from this months Ribbon Club Kit. I think the lace worked perfect as snow, and then the ribbon for my bows, adds a pop of color.

I also used the Sweetheart Blossoms that Bonnie carries at the Really Reasonable Ribbon store. And to put this together I used Score Tape in 1/4".

I used CottageCutz Snow Swept Border, and Icicle border for my card today. For the snow swept border I distressed it , and then added some Flower Soft. Next for the Icicle I used Angel Dust from CIP's. I kept this one simple, as my others are very detailed.

I left the inside of this one blank, for writing. I did add a SU! sentiment to one of the folds.

I am TRULY addicted to making these!! LOVE creating the scenes..

Your LAST stop on the HOP is the Really Reasonable Ribbon Ramblings Blog! Thank you so much for joining us this month, and hop you enjoyed all the inspiration from the DT !!

Happy Halloween Bendy Card & Video

Hello everyone, Today I wanted to share a Bendy card. I was so inspired to created one of these due to Carol and her post with her beautiful Bendy card. I just LOVE the fold for this. Thank you Carol for the inspiration to create one of these.

For my card I used TONS of CottageCutz Dies. The dp is Graphic45, and I thought the print was fitting for the occasion , since it has little spiders on it :) hehehehehee

Next I used the spooky Iron fence along the bottom of the inside and outside of my card. I placed the Lantern Tree on the front and the backside, to make it more sturdy, and so you could see the entire tree when opened. I used the tombstones along the inside like a cemetery. I figured the cute Jack o Lanterns would be darling on the front, but again I wanted you to see them on the inside too. 

I absolutely LOVE all the NEW Halloween CottageCutz dies, as they worked PERFECT for my card today :)

Here is a list of CottageCutz used:

Christmas Tags

For my 1st tag here
 I used the super sweet CottageCutz Jolly Cardinal, colored her with copics and then layered my tag with the CottageCutz Winter frost border and the Fancy Flurry Snowflake. Next I cut out the Merry Christmas with the die from the Homemade Christmas Gift Set.. The dp is from StampinUp! and so is the stamp. Love how fun these tags are to make!

My 2nd tag
I used the Sweet CottageCutz Dakota & Daisy die, the Tree's are from the Homemade Christmas gift Set. and the snowflake is the Cottagecutz Crystal Flurry. I also used the Winter Frost Border. I did the same thing and just layered all my pieces over the dp(SU!), and then stamped the to: and From: also from the Homemade Christmas Gift Set. All ribbons and flowers are Really Reasonable Ribbon.

On both of my tags I used Really Reasonable Ribbon in a Red & Green Gingham. I also used the Sweetheart Blossoms that can be found at RRR as well.
