Tutti Designs - 'Seas' the day!

Hello Friends!
Today I have a card to share for the Tutti Designs Store and they have some wonderful 'Sea' themed dies and that's the mood I was in today!  What's your mood today?  Simply go to the store, type in the theme you have in mind in the Search box and see what they have to offer.  By simply using two dies today I have a card that will be perfect to send to my sister when she returns to her home in FL.  What do you think?


The dies I've used are:






Using markers for my coloring, I've tried to mimic the beautiful colors of the coral.  After all was said and done, I thought I probably should have colored my fish blue or purple or something that would have stood out more than the yellow but it still looks wonderful I think (especially in person vs photos).  

My background water is a panel of inexpensive design paper and I've added a bit of diamond stickles on the tips of the coral for a touch of underwater sparkle.

 Please be sure to pop over to the Tutti Designs Store and check out all of the fabulous dies available. Need more inspiration?  The team has something new to share on the Tutti Designs Blog  EVERY DAY MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY!

Find A Few Moments . . .

Hello Friends & Happy Saturday!

I've been so busy lately with mowing my yard & mom's that I haven't taken the time to join in any of the challenges offered out there in Blogland so since it's raining today I thought I'd take a few minutes and have some fun crafting!

Here's a card I created to share in a couple of challenge blogs ...

and


I have used Tim Holtz Distressed Oxide Inks to create my background then using Versafine Onyx ink for my stamping.  The stamps I have used for the scene are very old ...

Flourishes (no longer in business) - Beach Life
and the sentiment comes from a Stampendous set called Seaside Chair (circa 2014)


BUT, for my Happy Birthday sentiment I have used a new stamp die set from Pretty Pink Posh ...
that just came in the mail yesterday ... happy happy!
Simple Sentiments Stamp Set

Stitched Strips Dies

I had used the largest die from the Tutti Designs Scalloped Stitched Nesting Ovals die set for my
scenic panel so sponged some TH Black Soot ink around the edge to act as a matting panel.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I hope you're having a FABULOUS weekend!!

Double D - Wedding

Hello Dear Friends!

It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
I'm happy to say I am hosting today's challenge and today's theme is:

WEDDING

The design team ladies have come up with some amazing designs for your inspiration, be sure to pop over and check 'em out!  Speaking of inspiration ... here's the mood board I created ... hope it helps to inspire you!

 

 Here's todays creation . . .


 I've obviously drawn inspiration from the top left corner of the mood board.
This card came together VERY quickly ... two die cuts and Viola!

I let this Cheery Lynn Designs 'Wedding Vows' Frame die (FRM138) do all the heavy lifting!  My card is A6 in size.  My couple little embellishments are the Marianne 'Tiny Love Birds' (LR0298) which I die cut several times and glued together before die cutting just the ribbon/heart from red card stock for a touch of color.  Believe it or not, I had this sweet little red satin bow hanging around so of course I had to add it to the top ... PERFECT finishing touch don't you think?


Inside View



We have this fabulous Sue Wilson Designs - Mini Expressions - On Your Wedding Day die offered as the prize to one lucky random winner.  Remember ... you gotta play to win!
  Sue Wilson Designs - Mini Expressions Collection - On Your Wedding Day
So be sure to pop over to the Double D Challenge Blog to see all the details and amazing samples offered up by our VERY TALENTED design team ladies!!

Dies R Us - Summertime Fun

Hello Friends!

Here we are in the middle of June and that means it's time for another fun challenge over on the  Dies R Us Challenge Blog. Our theme today is:

 Summertime Fun



The dies I have used on today's 'summertime relaxation card' are:

 Sue Wilson Designs - Tropical Collection - Island Paradise
 Impression Obsession - Dies - Beach Chairs

 Impression Obsession - Dies - Beach Umbrella
Impression Obsession - Dies - Shore Birds

As I have aged, relaxing on a beach would be my idea of the best summer time fun one could ask for!  LOL   Although I must admit I really don't get to the beach very often ... seems our back deck has become our retreat more often these days!

I hope you like the scene I have created.  I've used TH distress inks to create the sand & sky.


Don't forget to check out sister store in Canada . . .
Dies R Us now has a sister store with warehouses in USA & Canada called Didi Crafts 


It will ship to both the US and Canada. Didi Crafts will carry some of the same products as DRU, but most will be different. Now our Canadian friends don't have to worry about huge taxes or shipping fees. How great is that!?!


I hope you will come join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store.  For your convenience, all the important Dies R Us links are provided below.
