CottageCutz Silver and Gold

Hello Papercrafters!  Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas with family and friends.  These are some of the cards I created with the beautiful CottageCutz dies.  With the popularity of Gold and Silver why not try cutting your CottageCutz dies on Metallic Cardstock.   This is the CottageCutz Cardinal Ornament die cut on Gold Cardstock.
For the CottageCutz Reindeer and Tree Ornament die, Silver Cardstock and trim was used to create this card.  All cards used spellbinders circles dies and the large and small Martha Stewart Snowflake punches on white cardstock and glitter.
A Martha Stewart Punch around the Page punch was used for the background on all these cards for that pretty lacy doily look.  The CottageCutz Teddybear Snowglobe die was cut on Gold cardstock for this card.  Isn't it cute!
On all these pretty cards strips of Glittered Washi tape-it really highlighted and brought sparkle to these cards for a festive look.  For this card the CottageCutz Candle Snowglobe die was cut on Silver Cardstock.
The size of all the cards are 5" x 5"  and use kraft cards from the Michael's $1.50 bin.  The gold and silver trim you see around these cards are also from Michael's $l.50 bin as well.  The CottageCutz Gingerbread Snowglobe die was cut on Gold Cardstock.  Thank you so much for stopping by today to view these Silver and Gold cards.  Sure do appreciate it.  Until next time Happy New Year!  Here are the dies used:

CottageCutz Santa List Easel Card

Greetings everyone.  Welcome to another CottageCutz project using the dies from the Christmas 2015 Release.  For today, we have a beautiful Easel card.  The colors Red, Black, Gold and White were chosen for the card from a MAMBI Christmas pad from last year that I got at Michael's.

 The CottageCutz dies used for this creation are as follows:  Santa's List, Santa Pulling Sled, Poinsettia and HollyChristmas Greeting, and the Santa Reindeer Border.  A Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page was used along with Gold, Red, White, and Black Cardstock.  A snowflake embossing folder was used in the background and a Recollection Flower.
Isn't this Santa cute.  He matches the Santa List so perfectly that he just needed to be on this card.  What a fun project.  It was quick too as the black cardstock images just speak for themselves!
Thank you so much for joining me today and viewing this fun card.  Until next time....Happy Crafting.  These are the dies used:

CottageCutz Christmas Cards

 Christmas is in full swing here and today's post is just in time to share some of those last minute Christmas cards to send to family and friends.  CottageCutz dies are not only adorable, but the make quick work of a Holiday card and lend lots of details to the focal points.  This card features the Nutcracker die.
 These cards are created on Christmas cards from the $1.50 bin at Michael's for the base.  For this card the Potted Poinsettia for the focal point and Poinsettia and Ivy die from CottageCutz.
 So you can see the different looks you can get with these beautiful dies.  For this card Santa on Chimney is used.  These cards use all the same basic colors of black, white, and designer paper from Authentique "Believe" pad.
 Reindeer Pulling Sleigh from CottageCutz is the main focal point for this card.  A switch up of the flower and sentiment gives another look to this same basic design. 
Now that you have seen how many cards worked up, you know that once you have your basic design planned out, they go pretty quickly.  Perfect for last minute cards you need to get out.  This one used the Santa's Naughty/Nice List.
Almost all of these CottageCutz images were cut on glittered paper.  Another easy peasy hint for finishing up a few extra cards to send to those you didn't know were going to send to you this year.  For this card the Christmas Stocking was used.  Thank you for stopping by today.  Hope this gives you some ideas for whipping up some cards to finish your mailing list.  Until next time, Happy Crafting.  Here are the dies used:

CottageCutz Christmas Ornaments

Hello everyone.  For today's project share here are these pretty altered wood ornaments from Michael's  They are wooden frame ornaments that have been painted white and then painted with glue and sprinkled with glitter. 
The gold glitter paper has been cut with a oval Spellbinders die that matches the opening of the frame.  The Holy Family die was cut on black cardstock and mounted in the center of the frame.  The Poinsettia and Holly die frames the focal point.
The Angel Boy and Girl CottageCutz die was used on this ornament.  The flowers were created by cutting on white cardstock and distressing with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.  The center is a gold bead and the Holly was cut on gold paper.  The berries are from a Dollar Store floral pick.  The gold bling at the top of the ornament is a Michael' embellishment.
This ornament uses the Praying Angel Die.  She's so pretty isn't she.  I just love these ornaments.  After I created these I loved them so much I wanted to make more.  But when I went back to Michael's they didn't have any more of these frames.  Hope you got some inspiration to make your own ornaments.  Thanks for stopping by today to view this project.  Until next time......Happy Crafting.  These are the dies used:

CottageCutz Focus Week-Gift Card Holders

 CottageCutz is featuring Gift Card Holders for Focus week which is December 8 through December 15.  For my project, I have created this cute little gift card holder pocket.  It was created with a scalloped circle die and a plain circle die.  I cut three pieces:  a) the white backing with the scallop die, b) two pieces of designer paper, c) folded one of the designer papers over and adhered it to the base to create the pocket.
 Just so you know......that red gift card with the M.......is a Michael's card.....were you expecting a Home Depot card???? lol  For this gift card holder I used the Stacked Snowmen, Poinsettia & Holly, and Merry Christmas die from CottageCutz.  This looks so cute hanging in my tree.  It's a great way to present a Gift Card.
