CottageCutz Blog Hop

  
 Hello everyone and Welcome to The CottageCutz Blog Hop for November. We will have lots to share with you today using the Darling Cottage Cutz dies, so be sure to grab your favorite drink ,and enjoy the hop.  The Design Team is sure to delight you with some awesome creations made with the fabulous CottageCutz Dies.   You should have arrived here from The CottageCutz Blog.
 For my project today I am using the beautiful Filigree Reindeer die.  I cut two of the standing reindeer from white cardstock, painted them with glitter glue, and sprinkled white glitter on the reindeer.  I cut tow of the Filigree pieces from purple cardstock, painted with glitter glue, and sprinkled purple glitter on top.
 The reindeer have been layered on Spellbinders Label Twenty Seven.  Just a hint, the purple glitter piece in-between these these layers was created by tracing the top die piece on the back of the glitter paper and cut out with scissors.  I distressed with Rangers Concord Grape
 The background was created using a cuttlebug folder and distressing with the same Concord Grape distress ink.  The border is Spellbinders at the bottom, the Snowflakes are Martha Stewart.  The Purple floral piece is from Michaels.   Here is the CottageCutz die I used.
Thank you for joining us today.  I really appreciate it so very much.  Your next stop is the lovely and talented Janice's Blog .  Be sure to leave comments on all designers blog and The CottageCutz blog to be entered to WIN a prize!  Winners will be announced December 2 on the CottageCutz Blog.

Wow Carol. These dressed up reindeer are gorgeous. I love the muted Purple color - so elegant. This is one A+ card for sure - every single element adds another degree of beauty. You are one talented girl producing serious eye candy. Hugz and Happy Friday to you my friend. (Should be a fun game this weekend between AL and Georgia!)
