Tutti Designs - A Nautical Birthday

Hello Friends!
This is the last week I will be sharing cards created using various dies from the Tutti Designs Store that were showcased in March on the UK Hochanda TV show.  In fact, this will me MY LAST CARD FOR TUTTI DESIGNS!  The owner has decided to disband the design team so you will no longer be seeing weekly designs showcasing these dies.  I can't day I'm not disappointed in this decision because I am!, but the owners obviously felt that was the way to go right now.  I hope they were correct!



The Tutti Designs dies I'm using today are:

Slimline Stitched Wobbly Frames

TUTTI-685 Slimline - Stitched Wobbly Frames

 Seashell Lighthouse

TUTTI-533 Seashell Lighthouse

Word Set - Happy

 TUTTI-228  Word Set - Happy

 Word Set - Birthday

TUTTI-229  Word Set - Birthday


 As you can see in the photo, I have cut the frames from various nautical type background design papers and after die cutting two lighthouses, I fussy cut the light beams away to use just the lighthouses.  A scrap of yellow card stock was placed behind the windows and a bit of coloring was done before popping them up on the page using dimensional tape.

 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!

  Pop in often and see for yourself ... what a talented group of designers!!
For your convenience, here are all the Tutti Designs quick links you will need:

Wishing you all an AMAZING day ahead! 
As always, thanks SO MUCH for taking the time to stop by!

Sisterhood of Crafters - Flowers


 Hello my friends!

Today I have a card for the new challenge over on The Sisterhood of Crafters!
Our theme, chosen by Mwah this time around, is:
I had purchased some new floral stamps from the Altenew Company and today's challenge was the perfect time to ink them up!  I tried something a little different for the coloring on this one.

First I inked up my background panel by just using the extra ink that remained the sponge daubers I use for my TH Distress and Distress Oxide inks.  THEN, I stamped my Altenew Statement Flower 


using Versafine Onyx ink.  Lastly for the flower, I colored the hightlight/accent  areas using my Derwent Inktense Pencils and an artist brush.

 Inktense Pencil Set - Set of 24

 Lastly I added my Altenew Halftone Smile stamp/die bundle for my sentiment.  Stamping the verse then stamping & die cutting the word SMILE.



 Wasn't sure if doing the coloring this way would work,
but I'm pleased with the end result!

I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun at The Sisterhood of Crafters!
