Chritmas Sparkle - Dare 2B Artzy

Good Morning Dare 2B Artzy Buddies

I can't believe how fast October is going! To be truthful I don't even know where September went! It is still very warm here in South Carolina so needless to say I am ready for a cool down!  I am trying to get ahead of the Christmas season rush.  So I am starting to make a few cards for those special people who really love handmade things!


 Design Steps

1.  Use an A2 white card base and the Nested Rectangle Flip die to cut the front flap.  Place the die right in the middle of the front of the card and cut.  Fold the front flap as shown
2.  Cut 1 white glitter matching rectangle using the second from the smallest Nested Rectangle for the front flap  and cut out 1 white card stock rectangle for the inside of the card set aside
3.  Cut a piece of red glitter card stock 4 x 5 1/4 and glue to the inside of the card then cut a slightly smaller piece of Dare 2 B Artzy DP and glue it to the red glitter paper
4.  Cut a piece of red glitter card stock 2 x 5 1/4 and glue it to the front flap.  Cut a slightly smaller piece of the Dare 2B Artzy DP and glue it to the red glitter card stock
5.  Using the red glitter card stock cut out the Dare 2B Artzy Mini Ornament.  Add a piece of silver cord to the top of the ornament and then glue it to the Rectangle die cut.
6.  Glue the Rectangle piece to the front of the card and add the silver cord bow
7.  Stamp Noel from the Ornament Tangle stamp set and layer it onto red glitter card stock.  Attach it to the front flap as shown
8.  Stamp your inside sentiment using the Ornament Tangle stamp set onto the die cut Nested Rectangle. Then glue the Nested Rectangle to the inside of the card just behind the front flap so that it lines up perfectly

Boo to You! - Scrapping Cottage

Hello Scrapping Cottage Buddies!

I can't believe how fast October is going! To be truthful I don't even know where September went! It is still very warm here in South Carolina so needless to say I am ready for a cool down!  I have been playing with the new Halloween dies and I am just in love with all the great details each of the dies have.  Today, I am working with the Spooky Stacked Pumpkins so cute!

Be sure to check out the store our Autumn Designs, Halloween and Handmade Christmas dies are all on sale now.  It is just in time for these fall and winter holidays!  They make great gifts too!  The sale is for a whooping 25% off! Check them out!

Design Steps:
 1.  Using the Spooky Stacked Pumpkins die cut it out of white card stock
 2.  Use your favorite markers to color the die: YR68 for pumpkins, Y32 for eyes and broom, 100 for cat, bat and hat, C1 for the web, and E44 for the broom handle
 3.  Use an A2 black card base cut a slighly smaller piece of orange dotted DP.  Use the second largest  Pierced Wide Frame Rectangle die to cut out the green DP frame. And then cut the purple DP to fit behind the green frame
 4.  Glue the orange DP to the black card base, glue the purple DP in the center of the orange DP and then using dimension tape around the frame pop it on top of the purple
5.  Glue the colored die cut onto the front slightly to the left and then add the sentiment

Halloween Potions! - Scrapping Cottage

Hi Scrapping Cottage Fans!

I really appreciate you stopping by today!

Halloween is fast approaching and I am getting all of my cards ready to send out.  My friends, nieces, nephew, brother and sister love getting them.  So I have designed one that is relatively easy so you can make multiplies pretty fast.


Design Steps:

 1.  Use an A2 black card stock base cut a piece of DP just slightly smaller than the base.  Cut a piece of orange polka dot paper 4 in x 3 in
 2.  Glue the orange dotted paper to the top of the DP.  Add a piece of glittering black ribbon between the two papers
 3.  Mount the DP panel to the black card front
 4.  Use some green DP and cut a circle using the Nested Scalloped Stitched Circle Set.  I used the second from the largest.  Next using the Happy Halloween die cut it out in black cards stock.  Then use a small piece of orange and cut out just the pumpkin
5.  Glue the orange pumpkin on top of the tiny piece of yellow card stock.  Then glue the orange pumpkin on top of the black pumpkin.  Glue the sentiment to the center of the scalloped green circle.  Pop the scalloped circle to the card as shown below
