Filigree Christmas

Hello everyone , and Happy Saturday to all!
Today's card was designed for CottageCutz using the Beautiful Christmas dies to create my card today.
Card Measures 6 x 8

CottageCutz Dies Used:

Really Reasonable Ribbon Pears
Dp is DCWV
I cut the CottageCutz Sleigh the opposite way by laying my Glitter Paper facing up. So I laid the CottageCutz die facing up, then my Glitter Paper facing up, and when you flip your sleigh over to see your glitter paper you will have it going this way :)  

Next I airbrushed the outside of the sleigh to give it some distressing. You can do this with ink pads too, or with dusting. 
My CottageCutz Filigree Reindeer is Dusted with Tim holtz ink and a duster. I then added the same glitter card stock and airbrushed it.

is colored with copics. Lastly I added some Really Reasonable Ribbon Satin , pearls, and sewing to complete my card.

Thank you for looking and have a wonderful weekend!!!

Decorated Notebook Purse

Hello everyone, today I wanted to share a Purse Notebook that I decorated with Really Reasonable Ribbon.

My mom had picked up a bunch of these darling purses at walmart on sale, and gave me 1 to decorate. So I figured I would use all Really Reasonable Ribbon's Lace, Pom Pom Trim , Ribbon, and buttons to add to this darling purse.
Supplies Used:

I used the Mini Pom Pom white trim for along the bottom and around the flap of the purse, next I used some of the Light Blue Crocheted Lace to go across the bottom too, and then added the buttons to that. My bow was made using the Polka Dot ribbon from Decembers Ribbon Club Kit.

This was super EASY and FUN to decorate and would make perfect gifts for friends and family members. 

I hope you enjoyed my post today, as I enjoyed making it to share with you all!!

Funky Fold Santa

Hello everyone, today I wanted to share this Christmas Funky Fold Santa card made for Creative Inspiration Paints & CottageCutz Dies.

First I used CottageCutz Holly Jolly Legs, and then I thought how cute would it be to use the CottageCutz Witch Cake plate, but decorate it up for Christmas :) So I did just that!! I used the CottageCutz Mistletoe & Holly Berry to use on the top of the cake plate :)

For the cupcake tops I used Resplendence Angel Dust, I love this as its super pretty in person and has such a glittery beautiful look. Next for the scalloped border on the bottom of the plate I used Creative Inspirations Deliquesce Super Sparkle Gold.

For the Inside I used the CottageCutz Holly & Berry Border, and thought it would be perfect fit for the inside and it was. I also used more of the Mistletoe & Holly for the front of my card as shown below. I did use some Creative Inspiration Paints on all my pieces, and glitter too!!!

I added some sewing, and there is NO ribbon on this card, Shocking I know....hehehehehe 

On the greenery I used Creative Inspiration Paints Evergreen to highlight and give some shimmer to the leaves, however I had a hard time getting the photo's to show it, but Love the look it gives. On santa's boots I highlighted with CIP's Onyx black, just on the top of the boot,heel, and bottom of the boots. For the white on Santa's pants I used CIP's Carmel to distress the white. 

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!!

Build a Poinsettia Layout

Hello everyone and Happy Thursday to all! Today I wanted to share a Merry Christmas Layout made for Really Reasonable Ribbon & CottageCutz using the BEAUTIFUL "CottageCutz Build a Poinsettia Die" from the CottageCutz  Christmas Traditions Release & Beautiful Ribbons and Trim from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

For my Poinsettia's -
I cut them all out using Red Card Stock, and then I airbrushed them with a red copic, not sure if you can see the airbrushing very well in my photo's. Next I used Liquid Scrap Dots to give them a 3-D look, and then added some CIP's gold glitter to the centers of them all.

These were easy to make, I just put them all together at the same time, let them dry, and then added the glitter, set aside and worked on my layout. My layout is super simple as it only consist of 2 dp pieces for the backgroud layers, then I took another design paper piece and cut it down to create a matt for photo's. 

I used the BEAUTIFUL Ribbons and Mini Pom Pom Trim from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I ended up using the White Double Ruffled Edge Ribbon as a border and running the Chevron Ribbon down the center of it. Next I used the Mini Pom Poms down the center of my layout, and then the Chevron again for a bow along with a white satin with gold edge ribbon. All my ribbons used can be found HERE at Really Reasonable Ribbon!

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!!

6 x 6 Easel Card

Really Reasonable Ribbon's Challenge this week is to use "White on White with 1 other color" of course using ribbon too is a must :) I used Really Reasonable Ribbons Pink Satin, and Buttons for my card here.

The Ornament Bell I used is a CottageCutz Die from the CottageCutz "Christmas Traditions " Release. Its called CottageCutz Filligree Ornament Trio. I cut it out with the same white design paper as I used for the layers of my card. I then airbrushed the bell with the copic airbrushing system using a pink copic. The Beautiful little banner with the sentiment is also a CottageCutz die with stamps. Its called CottageCutz Boxwood Vine Wreath Die. Next all my layers have sewing, and I thought Really Reasonable Ribbon's Buttons were a perfect touch for my card.

Hello everyone and Happy Tuesday to all!!

CottageCutz Die Used:
Festive Owls/CottageCutz

Other Supplies:
Really Reasonable Ribbon /Gingham
Really Reasonable Ribbon/Latte Buttons

In the photo below you can see the shimmer from the Creative Inspiration Paints used on the DARLING Owl. I love the look these beautiful paints give, and they are super easy to use!! The Branches were cut out with a light green card stock, and then I used the evergreen Paint to highlight them.

The DARLING Christmas design paper is from DCWV and came from one of the Christmas stacks I bought at DCWV's 1.00 SALE! I thought it was soooo cute and perfect match for this card and embellishments.
