Tree With Lantern

Good Morning!
 
Moving into some Halloween FUN!  The new August Release has so many fabulous and spooky dies to create all things Halloween. 
 
Run right over to the Tutti Designs Store and check them out!  They are frighteningly good!  Mwahahahahaha
 
 
 
I found some crazy Halloween Designer Paper in my stash and I went from there.  I hand cut a tag to incorporate the size of this FUN Tree With Lantern die.  Layering it in Black and White card stock, sponging the edges to give it a more rustic flavor and feel.  The die was cut from Black Glitter paper and once again from Orange.  That sweet little Pumpkin Lantern was layered on to the Black.
 
 

 
Purple Rhinestones, Orange Baker's Twine, Orange Eyelet and some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Ebony for my accents.  I am not even bothered by that smeared drop, it's a Halloween card, something has to be wrong, right?

Birdhouse Garden

Good Morning!
 
 
A little change of pace for me today.  This card showcases an oldie but a goodie Tutti Designs die, Birdhouse Garden, which was released back in the October Release of 2016.
 
I love this die, because it reminds me of putting my own gardens to bed for the upcoming season.  I adore Fall and all it brings, even if my pretty blooms go dormant for a while!
 
 
 
Once again I cut this beautiful Birdhouse Garden die from White card stock.  I colored it using Copic Markers.  I also added some Pink and White card stock to the back of the birdhouses and the pretty yellow flowers.  This technique gives a bit more oomph to your die cut.  Then I added Versa Mark ink to the entire die cut, coating in clear Embossing Powder and heating.  This always adds such a nice shine to what you are creating AND it makes your die cut look like a pretty embellishment.  If you do this with many layers it becomes an absolute gorgeous chipboard like piece......which as you all know, adds depth and dimension. 
 
 

 
 
As I only cut one layer, this is still a nice flat card for easy (no extra postage) mailing. 
Gotta love that!

Pumpkin Frame

Good Morning!
Back on the Tutti Designs Inspiration Blog today.
 
This card will be showcasing one of the new August Release dies, # 387 Pumpkin Frame
 
Fall is in the air people.....and I am thankful!
 
 


 
 
I die cut this beautiful Pumpkin Frame and colored it with Copic Markers.  Then I covered it with Versa Mark ink and Clear Embossing Powder.  Heated it to get that pretty shine.
 
 
 

 
Added a Fall stamped image and sentiment from the Gina K Designs set, Fanciful Fall.  Adhered it to my card panel adding Sheer Ribbon and Randomly tossed Sequins (wink, wink).  This completed my Autumn Blessings card.
 
 
 
 
 
 
The Tutti Designs Store has some beautiful and spooky
new additions to the August Release for all of your Fall and Halloween card making needs!

Double D, Glitter

Good Morning!

A brand new Challenge is up and running over at the Double D Challenge Blog. 

Check out this Inspirational Tile!

 
 
 
All that Glitters is not gold.....sometimes it's PINK!!!
 
 
 
 
 
I started with a Spellbinders Captivating Squares die cut, which I doused with this beautiful Martha Stewart Glitter in Tourmaline....let me just say this color will come in super handy for making Christmas Ornaments for our little Penny-Poo!  :)  I added a Swiss Dots textured panel to the Spellbinders die cut, which makes for a lovely resting space for my glitter butterfly!
 
 
 

 
 
My butterfly is by Cheerylynn, Small Lace Butterfly.  I die cut the pretty image in White card stock and the backing from Adhesive Paper.  In this way I was able to layer the 2 pieces together and then sprinkle and burnish in my pretty glitters, I used; Amethyst, Kunzite and more of the Tourmaline.  The Adhesive Paper really holds onto the glitter....yay!
 
 
A few different angles so you can see all of that sparkle and shine!



 
I also popped up the butterfly for added dimension.
 


 
Sentiment stamped on a Vellum strip in Rose Red, and then Heat Embossed with Clear Powder, this helps with the smearing issue.  PTI, Happy For You stamp set.
 


 
Adhesive pearls and a little Heart Button for accents.
 
 
Please come on over to the Double D Blog and join in all of the FUN!  You'll be glad you did as there is always a pretty prize up for grabs!

Merry Christmas

Good Morning!  Happy Wednesday!
Back again on the Tutti Designs Inspiration Blog
 
Here on the Tutti Designs Inspiration Blog we have been
celebrating our July Release with all things Christmas!  So Festive!
 
Here is a simple designed card using a magnificent Tutti Designs Store die.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
These cards only measure 4 1/4 squared.  They are great for little notes or even a gift tag.  I wanted to keep them fairly simple and let the die work it's magic.  Die cutting each Merry Christmas die in a wonderful foil.  Green, Gold and Hot Pink.
 
 

 
 
I also added splatters of craft paints and matching sequins in the Green, Gold and Hot Pink.
 
 
 

 
 
Topped each little snowflake with an Adhesive pearl for accent.
 
 

 
Sometimes less is more!

Holiday Lantern

Good Morning!
Back again on the Tutti Designs Inspiration Blog.
 
We are still celebrating our Christmas and Holiday July Release in the Tutti Designs Store.
 
Let me shed some light on my Holiday card using this fabulous Holiday Lantern.
 
 
 
 
 
I simply die cut twice and colored with Copic Markers.  
I also added a few layers of the little stars by die cutting several more times.



 
 
I wanted the Holiday Lantern to appear as if it were on a decorated mantle, nestled in some pretty Holly Boughs.  My sentiment picks up on the sparkle and shine of my glitter.  Power Poppy; Glistening PaperwhitesRaven Black ink.
 
 
 

 
Just 2 layers this time to add that depth and dimension.
