Tutti Designs - Birdhouse Garden

 Hello Friends!

Today I'm sharing a couple of cards which were created for an upcoming episode (Oct 27th) on the UK Hochanda TV show.  In fact, I'll be sharing all those creations with you over the next few weeks as I'm sure some of my team mates will be doing the same.

They will be showcasing some of Tutti's older dies which is great since I had forgotten all bout them and they made some awesome designs.  Let's get started shall we!
On this first card, I've simply used medium blue card stock which I've sponged with some white craft ink to give it a cloudy appearance for my background.  Then I've die cut my birdhouse garden 3 times and glued them together for dimension.  The rectangles were used for my sentiment and blue birds were punched out (old MS punch) and popped up as an accent.  Easy Peasy!
Today I'm going to share creations using two die sets ...

TUTTI-181 Birdhouse Garden

For my second card, I've used a starry night designer paper for the background on my 'slimline' creation.  I've die cut the birdhouse garden twice from white card stock then linked them together to create a longer row of birdhouses.  
I've colored the grass with an alcohol marker then die cut the individual houses from scraps of colored card stock and glued them to the white houses.  Love the variation of colors ... what do you think?

  8. Very creative idea to make a slimline with the birdhouses, and so colorful too, another fabulous creation!!

  9. so pretty, like the way you did the sky background on the first card, the line up of the birdhouses in the rainbow of colors reminds me of those seaside bungalows you see in the pictures, too cute!
