Halloween Kitties!

  Hello Scrapping Cottage Friends

Super Excited to announce we have a brand new release just in time for all of those amazing Halloween cards everyone makes!! The collection has 22 fabulous dies that are going to make those scrapbook layouts and cards look SPOOKTACULAR!!!  The dies are currently on sale so make sure you get them while they last at this special introductory offer!!

Today, I am using the Spooky Kitties.  It has so many cute pieces.  These pieces could be used in a variety of different ways!  For this card I decided to make a slimline.

Designer Steps:

1.  Using the Spooky Kitties die cut out the following colors of card stock:  orange, purple, brown, light and dark gray, yellow and white.  Ink the various pieces with TH inks and then assemble with a fine tip, fast drying glue.  I used a black Glaze Sakura pen for the eyes

2.  Use an orange 3 1/2 x 8 1/2 card base, cut a piece of purple card stock using the largest of the Slimline Scallop Stitched Rectangle dies, Cut a piece of DP 2 3/4 x 7 3/4,  and finally cut a piece of black using the Window Slimline.  Ink the edges of the orange base in black ink
2.  Glue the purple scalloped rectangle to the orange base then glue down the DP.  Before adhereing the black window frame to the base cut two pieces of green grass using the Grass Slimline die and cut a light gray cloud  using the Clouds Slimline.  Glue the pieces to the back of the black windows as shown above and cut off the extra.  Ink the clouds with a black TH ink
3.  Glue the black windows to the card base do not glue the tops of the grass so you can tuck your cats down into the grass
4.  Arrange your kitties in each of the window glueing the pieces flat to the card base make sure you tuck the kitties feet into the grass.  Add the sentiment and your card is complete

Design Steps:

1.  Cut a piece of white card stock 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 and a piece of red snowflake DP 4 x 5 1/4.  Glue the two pieces together and then cut the square for the shaker window (I did it slightly to the left of center).  The shaker window is 2 1/2 by 2 1/2 so I used my Pierced Square die 3rd from the largest to cut the opening

Ho Ho Ho

 Hello Scrapping Cottage Friends

We have a NEW RELEASE FOR AN EARLY START ON YOUR CHRISTMAS CARDS!!   The collection is Christmas Part 1 and has 21 fantastic dies. The release includes everything from Gnomes to Reindeer!! Check it out HERE it is on sale now!!

The die I am creating with today is Jolly Santa Gnome!  I made a mini Slimline with this cute little guy!  My inspiration come from a card created by Francine Vuilleme. I loved her idea and had to give it a try!


Design Steps:
1.  Cut out all the pieces using the Jolly Santa Gnome and card stock in the following colors: red, green, brown, black, and flesh.  For the Ho Ho I used the Ho Ho Friends die and cut 2 Ho's in white card stock
2.  Before assembly shade the pieces in black for the Santa and brown for the little shoulder basket.  I added a little blush to the nose.  Glue the pieces together using a fine tip fast drying glue  
3.  The card base is white card stock measure 3 1/2 x 6 1/2 when folded.  To add a little contrast in the background I used light blue ink with a soft blending brush.  Just enough ink to pop the HO HO

4.  Glue the HO HO to the background as shown above then add the gnome santa using pop dots.  Your card is complete
