Tutti Designs - Lily of the Valley

Happy Sunday Everyone!

I'm happy to say it's my turn once again to share a new, inspirational creation using dies from the Tutti Designs Store.  Have you checked out this new die company yet?  If not, you truly owe it to yourself to pop over to see the fabulous die designs available.  I'm using dies from their September release, which is available in the store, but keep watching because there are more new, beautiful dies coming over the next couple of months!

 I fell in love with both of these Lily of the Valley dies so decided to combine the two into one creation.  What do you think?  The dies I have used are:


Of course either of these dies could stand alone beautifully but I was curious how they would work together and I'm very happy with the outcome!  Again ... trying to 'think outside the box' a bit!

I've die cut both dies from white card stock then did a little coloring using my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers LG2 & LG3.  I wanted a 'backdrop' for my frame so die cut an oval panel and sponged it with a sky blue ink pad to add the look of a pretty summertime sky in behind these beautiful flowers.   To create the matting for my beautiful focus Lily of the Valley, I simply used the same ink pad with a ruler.

When possible, I like to finish the inside of my cards as I'm creating them.  That of course is not always possible but with today's card being a Birthday theme, I had no excuse for not doing the finishing touches.  Here's a peek at the inside:

Please be sure to pop over to the Tutti Designs Store

Is that not glorious??? WOW! Those Lily Of The Valley are stunning, both of them and I adore how you have used them!!! My Mother-In-Laws most favorite, I have a ton of them in the back. Love how you finished the inside too. This just puts a big smile on my face! Swoon!

It would be hard to settle on one, so I'd have to get both, as well. They sure do make a beautiful combination! I love how you colored these. Gosh, I sure thought that blue border was a layer. You clever girl! This turned out so pretty!

This is so pretty, the lilies remind me of my grandma. She had them growing in front of her porch and I loved to pick them. I can smell them now, looking at your card! It's so pretty. I just bought the Tutti Christmas tree, and I love it. The lilies will be my next purchase!!!
