CottageCutz Halloween Night Scene

Welcome friends and papercrafts to this Spooky card creation.  This is such a fun project to me.  This style card is called a Funky Fold.  The basic instructions were followed, but the ends were made 2-1/2" wide and just mounted on the regular ends of the card.
This is the CottageCutz Halloween Night Scene die.  The background was created with distress ink with a masked moon.  For the ends of the card, the Halloween Vine die.  It was just flipped and the backside used to balance the scale of the card.  The CottageCutz Halloween Tag Topper is centered for the Sentiment.
Thank you so much for stopping by today to view this little haunted creation.  Sure do appreciate it.  Until next time......Happy Crafting.  These are the dies used:

CottageCutz Halloween Matchboxes

Welcome papercrafts and friends to another CottageCutz creation for Halloween.  You know you have those special "Trick-or-Treaters" that you just want to just do a little something extra for.  These are so stinking cute.  They are matchboxes created with the beautiful CottageCutz dies.  These little boxes will put a smile on the recipients face.  How about the teller at the bank, the cashier at the grocery store, a child's special teacher, or your co-workers.  These will add some fun to you Halloween festivities!
 You can find directions of making your matchbox tutorials on youtube or perhaps you own a matchbox die.  This matchbox was created with black cardstock and cover with Halloween cardstock on the outside only leaving a 1/4" edge,  The orange burlap is from the "Dollar Tree".  The spider is a Recollection embellishment.  Use any square die that fits you diecut image and top of box.  The Cottage cutz die here is the Witch on Broom.  The rose was created on orange cardstock with a 5 petal medium Marvey punch that are destressed with black soot ink and the leaves are the frond punch mounted on a seam binding bow.
This box uses the same basic design but with the CottageCutz Pumpkin and Bat die,  I backed the pumpkin with black cardstock because I liked the way it looked and it made it show up well.
The third and last matchbox uses the same basic design with the CottageCutz Cat w/Pumpkins.  The die was cut on Orange Designer Paper and again on Black Cardstock.  Cut the just the cat from the black cardstock and mount it on top of the cat cut from the Orange Designer paper.  The pumpkins were backed with golden yellow cardstock to match the polkadots in the Designer paper.  The "Boo" embellishment is Recollection.
Thank you so much for stopping by today to view these sweet Matchboxes.   Be sure to make something cute for those special people in your life.  It just makes a memorable moment.  Until next time......Happy Crafting.  Here are the dies used:

CottageCutz Haunted Mill

 Welcome friends and crafters to a CottageCutz Halloween creation.  Here is another Spooktacular die.  This one is called CottageCutz Haunted Mill.  Doesn't it look fabulous on this background.  It almost appears to be lit up!  To create the background cut a circle for your mask to create the moon.  Tape it with removable tape and use your distress inks to color the background.  Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, and Black Soot was used here.  The frames were cut on the Cricut from the Happy Hauntings Cartridge.  The bottom frame was distressed with Peeled Paint and stickles were applied for the glittery effect.  The CottageCutz Halloween Tag Topper was cut on black cardstock and mounted on green designer paper.
Thank you so much for stopping by today to view this project.  It sure is appreciated.  Until next time.....Happy Crafting.  Here are the dies used:
