Hello Friends!
Today I'm sharing a creation using one of the new Stained Glass Dies

The particular die I have used is the Winter Tree Stained Glass
TUTTI-408 Winter Tree Stained Glass
Here are the steps taken for today's card . . .

 I die cut my image from white card stock and colored with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers.  
I wanted to showcase the sun so I die cut a circle using the Tutti Designs Nesting Stitched Circle dies and glued it to the back of my panel.  Using the closest sized Tutti Designs Nesting Stitched Rectangles, I laid it behind my image and drew a light pencil line showing there the sky ended and the grass began.  Then sponged Tim Holtz distress inks on the panel to create the background color.

Adding glue to the back of my 'Sun', I attached my colorful background panel before matting the entire framed image to a panel of black card stock.

To decorate the front I decided to use the Tutti Designs Butterfly Scroll die.
TUTTI-103  Butterfly Scroll

For the bottom corner embellishment, I die cut it 4 times from white card stock and glued them all together in a stack.  Coloring only one panel to be used for the top of my stack.   Another panel was cut & colored to use in the upper right corner.  This is a single cut and after adhering to my card front, I snipped off the remainder.

Please be sure to pop over to the Tutti Designs Store and check out all of the fabulous dies in this latest release.  And, of course, you'll want to browse through the store to see what other dies you need to have on hand.

Wow! These new stained glass dies are amazing! I love your technique for adding color and I also love how you used just a portion of the butterfly scroll in the upper corner. I have that die and you've given me more ideas on creative ways to use it. Fabulous!
