Tutti Designs - It's Party Time

Hello Everyone
and
Happy New Year's Eve!
I'm once again dipping into my older Tutti Designs dies to create card of inspiration for you!

 Since it is PARTY time of year (with it being New Year's Eve and all ... lol)!
That's the theme for today creation.


The dies I chose to create with today are:

TUTTI-288 Party Banner 

and

TUTTI-290 Balloon Boquet

 Here are a few steps taken in this creation ...



Since my background balloon paper was bright,
I decided to tone it down a little using a
sheet of frosted vellum.

Once that was ready to go, I die cut my dies from
white card stock and did some coloring with my
alcohol markers.


I kept the banner as a single panel but I
die cut the balloon bouquet three times and
stacked them for dimension.


(Sorry ... my bow looks black in the photo, but it's actually a darker blue 
that matches the background paper balloon perfectly!)

Please be sure to pop over to the Tutti Designs Store
and check out all of the fabulous dies available.

Cheapo Dies - Birthday Wishes

Hello dear Friends!
Today I'm sharing a breath of fresh air creation 
using dies from the Cheapo Dies Store.

After all those holiday cards, it was fun to switch gears and create with spring time colors.


The die set I have used today is appropriate named

Butterflies


 I have used three of the four dies available in this set
to create a CAS (clean and simple) designed card.

I've simply cut a white card stock panel 1/8" smaller than
my card base then sponged ink on the top & bottom
to create my grass & sky.  A stamped sentiment along
with these beautiful white butterflies and VIOLA!


I hope you've enjoyed what I've shared today, and, if you're not familiar with Cheapo Dies, you are missing out!!!

Tutti Designs - Butterfly Hearts

 Hello Friends!
Today I've once again decided to take a look back into the Tutti Designs Archives
to choose a die for today's creation.  The die I've chosen is this beautiful 'Love Butterfly Frame'.



TUTTI-416 Dotted Nesting Squares

to create my background design.

I have die cut the entire frame twice from black card stock
then glued them together for dimension.


The little black hearts in the middle are a few that popped out of the butterflies.
The red hearts are from the same frame die that
I die cut from a scrap of red card stock then snipped out the hearts
to use as embellishments on my design.



Please be sure to pop over to the Tutti Designs Store
and check out all of the fabulous dies available.

Cheapo Dies - Christmas Tea

Hello All!
Today I'm  sharing a beautiful holiday creation 
using a die from the Cheapo Dies Store




called Teapot

 Cheapo Dies - Teapot

 I have turned this beautiful every day teapot into a Christmas Teapot by simply adding a foil paper snowflake over the flower in the center.


 To bring focus to my silver glittered holiday tea pot, I added two frames from the Memory Box Open Studio 'Wrapped Stitch Frames' ... one cut from white card stock and the other from shiny silver card stock.  I have die cut the frames and teapot twice each and glued them together for a little dimension ... yet still keeping it mailable.


Using up a few scraps of holiday foil paper, I've also punched out a couple snowflakes for the lower corner from green foil paper and added red sequins.  


I have a friend who is a tea drinker  so this card will be headed her direction!

Almost time . . .

Hello friends and Happy Friday!

I still can not believe it's only a few days until Christmas!
I just don't where the time is going, I just know it's moving way too fast for me!

I have a couple holiday cards to share that I realized I had created
and photographed but had forgotten to share them with you all.
I actually found them in my NOVEMBER folder ... told you time is zinging right past me!  LOL


Several months ago I decided to put together a few 3D images 
that I've had in my possession for several years that I 
purchased locally at a craft shoppe that was going out of business.

They are dated circa 2010 and when I try to pull up the
websites, they are no longer available. 
But I'm sure you now the type of 3D sheets I'm referring to where
the pop outs are numbered and you stack them to create an image
like the one on this card.

for the background.
Lawn Fawn - Snowfall Backdrop: Landscape Die

I also finished the inside of this card with a verse
printed out from my files and die cut using
Tutti Designs oval layering dies.


Here is the 2nd card I had to share using yet another 3D image
from those same sheets.


Other dies used on this card are:
Sue Wilson Designs - Festive Collection - Frosty Snowflake Border
Memory Box - Dies - Open Studio - Wintry Snowflakes
 Hunkydory - Moonstone Dies - A Holly Jolly Christmas
Tutti Designs - Cross Stitch Nesting Squares


A few snowflakes created using Nuvo White Crystal Drops
were added to the top of the card base.

I hope you've enjoyed my cards today and find
inspiration in my designs.

Have a wonderful weekend ahead!

Double D - Let it Snow!

Hello Dear Friends!
It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
I'm hosting today and as you can see by my blog title ... the theme is


Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!
(use anything SNOW related)

Here's the mood board I've created to help inspire you . . .



 Well Christmas isn't far away and I'm hoping we have a White Christmas this year.  I have so many wonderful childhood memories of winter holidays ... off school, sled riding, building a snowman, having snowball battles with my sisters and the neighborhood kids.  I can remember we even built an IGLOO one year and my dad put a light inside for me!  That was really cool stuff for a young kid!
  So that's what I was thinking of when creating today's card.


Now mind you, I grew up in Pennsylvania and we never had any Moose running through the yard but we certainly saw our share of deer and other critters!  LOL


 Can you see the sparkle on the snow and the holiday lights on the house?  LOL
(oops from this angle it appears one string of lights might be out ... lol ... it happens!)


 The dies I have used to create my winter snowball throwing scene are:

Impression Obsession 'Snowball Fight'
Impression Obsession - Dies - Snowball Fight

Poppystamps 'Winter Cabin'
Poppystamps - Dies - Winter Cabin
Poppystamps 'Whittle Moose'

Tutti Designs - Get Well

Hello Friends!
Today I've once again decided to take a look back into the Tutti Designs Archives
to choose a die for today's creation.

The die I chose today is called Swirly Get Well

TUTTI-227 Swirly Get Well


Here are a few quick steps in creating today's card:
After die cutting a pink panel for my background, I embossed it with a dotted embossing folder.  Next I die cut THREE Get Well panels... 2 to layer for added dimension and 1 to clip off the swirly parts to use as embellishments.



Before gluing the 2 Get Well panels together, I colored in the tulips using my alcohol markers.  Just for an added touch of color ... you could certainly keep it ALL white and it would be beautiful.


A few little pink sequins and this card to ready to lift someone's spirits!
Here's one more look at the finished card.

and check out all of the fabulous dies available.
