Trick of Treat

A new themed challenge starts today at Double D
and it is Owls and/or Pumpkins!

We have a great and fun  mood board for a bit of inspiration!

I used a Cottage Cutz die for my card, Black Cat with Jack -o-Lantern!  

I try to buy when they have their 60 to 85% off sales
and have to admit I have LOTS of their dies, but some are really time
consuming with all the little parts, in fact I had an extra piece for this one
but for the life of me couldn't figure out where it went LOL!
I used all kinds of scraps from my scrap bags for my die cut
and this is the first time I have used this die, what was I waiting for???

A hint to make it much easier when constructing is I always go and cut all the pieces first
then put them on a white card stock sheet as I cut so as not to lose a piece before I am ready
to use it, makes is simpler to have it all in front of you ready to adhere!

I used a few pieces of my designer paper that has been around for quite awhile!

I think he turned out pretty cute, even without the missing piece,
where ever that goes!  I think it's a little piece that goes in his mouth, whoops!!

Visit the Double D challenge and see all the fabulous creations
my teammates have come up with for this challenge, you WON'T

This is so fun! Maybe it was fiddly to do, Diane, but it came out great!

Darlene said...

WOW ... you are SO GOOD at this Cottage Cutz dies and this one is a cute one for sure! I would go crazy before figuring this out! LOL Love your choice of background papers and the sentiment banner is perfect! Great job girlfriend!!!

Pat said...

Love the card. It's inspiring me to use more diecuts!

Birgit said...

This die is absolutely adorable Diane. It's always nice when you can use up scraps of patterned paper that have been lying around for a while. No one would ever know this smiling Jack was missing something. Your card is super cute!

Vicki said...

So cute, Diane! Wow, you're the queen of die cut paper piecing. I love the witch hat patterned paper too.

Barbara said...

All of those little parts made a jazzy card. Love that black cat and the happy look on the pumpkin are adorable. Great Halloween colors!

OMGosh, it's so cute and colorful and absolutely fantastic! I had to go look, but please stop me. I've been trying not to look because I still have a few Cottage Cutz I haven't used yet, along with so many other things. Your card is so darling, though. LOVE it!

OMG, I just ADORE this card. All those pieces, though. Very labor intensive, but so, so worth it. It could not be any cuter. Also, lots of good work here, and great take on the challenge. Thanks so much for playing along with us this time over at The Mod Squad. Hope to see you back soon!!!

You spent some fiddly time on this one, Diane, but it was so worth it! It's just fantastic, even without the missing piece. I'm with you on the Cottage Cutz dies ~ they have so many really great ones! Thank you for sharing with everyone at NBUS! Hugs, Darnell
