Merry Christmas

Hello!  Today I have a Christmas card to share over on the Scrapping Cottage blog.  I went with a bright and cheery theme with the sweet moose and gnomes on my card.  It was the perfect card to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!
I used the Cottage Cutz Moose Pulling Gnomes Sled and the Merry Christmas die sets.  I used my Oxide Inks to shade all of the die cuts and then layered the sentiment on a hand cut panel.
For my card base, I went a CAS design and embossed the white card stock with the Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder.
I layered the embossed paper on top of the snowflake paper to create my card base.  The sentiment panel was angled on the background of my card.
The sled was layered above the sentiment as if the moose was pulling the adorable gnomes down hill.
To finish off my card, I wrapped the top edge with some Cranberry Trendy Twine and tied it together.
Here are the dies used on my card, available in the store:

Hoping You'll be Back in the Swim of Things Soon!

Hello!  Today I'm sharing this card over on the Scrapping Cottage for my design team day created with the new Arctic Animals die release which is currently on sale!
I cut out the whale from the Arctic Whale & Narwhal die set and the seal from the Baby Seals die set.  The sliced oval is from the Pierced Oval Set.  The waves are punched from the Fiskar's Boundary Waters border punch.
I used some Oxide Ink for the background of my card and for the borders and then splattered everything with some water.
I stamped a sentiment from the Scrappy Moms (retired) Beach Bums stamp set on my card base and then added the oval and borders along the bottom edge.
The seal was placed on the center of the oval to mimic a mound of sand with the whale jumping above the waves.
A few sequins were scattered above the whale as a finishing accent on my card

Happy Holidays

Hello!  Today is my design team day over on the Scrapping Cottage blog and I'm sharing this adorable Christmas card.  This sweet bird sitting on the snowy branch is the cutest!
The cardinal is from the Jolly Cardinal die set and inked with my Oxide Inks.  I cut out a circle from the Circle Set and a doily from the Nested Stitched Doily Set.  The sentiment is from the Happy Holidays die set which was adhered on a flag from the Retro Tag Toppers die set.
I went with a Christmas plaid background for my card base and layered in with the doily and circle cuts.
The cardinal was centered inside the layered doily.  I placed the first sentiment flag directly above the doily.
The second flag was added to the bottom edge of my card finishing off the curved sentiment design.

I Can Bearly Wait til Christmas

Hello!  I'm back over on the Scrapping Cottage blog for my design team post with this sweet Christmas card.  I used two die sets from the new Black Friday die release for my card.  These dies are still on sale over in the store.
I cut out the adorable polar bears from the Arctic Polar Bear & Cub and Arctic Moose & Polar Bear die sets.  I cut out an extra scarf so all three bears would have a scarf.  I also used a left over piece from the Icicle Border die set and cut it into two pieces.
I created the card base with a snowflake paper layered with some patterned paper.  The icicle border was adhered along the top edge with the thinner scrap added along the bottom edge. Everything was matted on a black card base.
The first polar bear was placed on the left side of my card and the other two bears were added on the opposite side.
I heat embossed a sentiment from the Scrappy Moms (retired) Winter Wishes stamp set on a hand cut flag.  The sentiment flag was placed above the polar bear as a finishing accent.

Merry Christmas

Hello! I'm sharing another project for the Cottage Cutz Black Friday die release.  The design team has been sharing the cutest projects with these dies over on the Scrapping Cottage blog.
My card was created with the Seal & Walrus Pals and the Holiday Greetings Tree die sets.  The seal & walrus are dressed in their festive attire and perched up on their ice blocks.  The snow themed patterned paper is the perfect backdrop for the winter scene.  The Merry Christmas sentiment was trimmed and centered on the card base.  A few stars were sprinkled in as a finishing accent.
Here are the die sets used on my card available in the store:

Wishing you Warmth and Cheer!

Hello!  Today I'm participating in the Cottage Cutz Black Friday die release over on the Scrapping Cottage blog.  This release includes 13 new "Arctic" themed die set and they are absolutely adorable!
This shaker card features the Polar Bear Fishing die set.  The patterned paper background was the inspiration for the winter scene on this card.  The polar bear looks so content sitting on the ice block, nestled in his cozy hat and scarf.  The scene is framed inside the Stitched Wide Rectangle Frame.  The extra fish swimming amongst the sparkly sequins adds a bit of whimsy to this card.  The sentiment is a coordinating element from the same paper pad and was tucked into the corner of the frame.

Be Merry

Hello!  I have a fun and festive card to share for my design team post over on the Scrapping Cottage blog.  I went with a non-traditional color theme for this Christmas card.
I used a total of 4 different die sets to cut out all the pieces for my card.   The snowflakes are from the Santa Over Christmas Town set and the reindeer is from the Silly Holiday Reindeer die set.  I opted to use the Springtime Window for my card even though the reindeer coordinates with the Winter Window which I used on this card.  The Icicle Border was the final die piece for my card.
The reindeer was nestled inside the window and icicle border was trimmed on the edge to fit along the window sill.  I stamped a sentiment from the APB Merry and Bright stamp set on a hand cut flag.
I created my card base with a non traditional color theme which definitely has a winter vibe.  The snowflakes were scattered on the base of my card.
The reindeer and window was the next element added to my card.  The window was adorned with the icicle border completing the winter scene.
The sentiment was placed below the larger snowflake as the finishing touch on my card.

Wishing You a Very Merry Christmas

Hello!  I'm sharing this card over on the Scrapping Cottage blog for my design team post.  The beautiful Christmas Cardinal is the from the Christmas Part 2 die release and is one of my favorite dies from this release.
For my card base, I went with a basic color palette and fussy cut the pieces for the fence.  I heat embossed a sentiment from the Scrappy Moms (retired) Merry & Bright stamp set on a hand cut flag.
I layered the fence posts onto my card base building the fence along the bottom edge. Next, I splattered the background with some white paint for a snowy affect and matted it on a black card base.
I cut out the Christmas Cardinal in white card stock and used my Oxide Inks to shade all of the pieces.  I went with the traditional red theme for this sweet bird.
The cardinal was perched on the snowy fence as the focal point of my card.  I love the way he pops against the neutral background.
The embossed sentiment was added above the cardinal as the final finishing touch on my card.
Here is the die set used on my card, available in the store:
