Tutti Designs - Anchors Away


 Hello Friends!

Over the next several weeks I will be sharing cards created using various dies from the Tutti Designs Store that were showcased last month on the UK Hochanda TV show.  The dies I'm using today are Ship in a Bottle (#442) and Fishing Net (#444).   I've used a third die that wasn't showcased on the TV show but comes in very handy all the time ... Cross Stitch Nesting Rectangles (#410)

TUTTI-444 Fishing Net

TUTTI-410 Cross Stitch Nesting Rectangles


Here's how this card came together ...

 I die cut the ship in a bottle die THREE times ... White, Kraft & Blue.  The ship is actually separate from the bottle, so I was able to do some fussy cutting and gluing and then paper piece it back into place after putting the blue panels back into the white frame on my black background panel.  I used a small sponge & ink to add some color to the coral (at least I think that's supposed to be coral) inside the bottle.  The rope & cork were also inked for added dimension color.

 The fishing net was cut from Kraft paper and simply positioned behind my focus image.  I've added a simple sentiment and VIOLA ... ready for mailing.


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!

  4. Fabulous job with this, I love how you added the ship right into the bottle like that, love the paper you used for the ship and the cork and jute, and the netting is so great with it, Love it!

  5. Your ship turned out great! It's always fun to be able to finagle an element to create exactly what you have in mind. I love the watery background paper you chose to emphasize your theme.
