Tutti Designs - Easter Lilies Window

Hello, my friends!

It's Monday, and I'm back with a new Tutti Designs share!

I was excited to create with this "Easter Lilies Window" die,
which you can find HERE.
There are so many possibilities!

First, here's the finished card:


Now let me show you how I did it.
I began by cutting the die out of black cardstock
Then I adhered the die onto another piece of black cardstock.
I was excited to use my brand new Sakura Souffle Pens.
Next, I just went about coloring. 
This was very easy to do, since each bit was framed with the die-cut.


Here it is all colored up:


To finish it off, I cut the die again out of black cardstock.
I adhered this one directly on top of the colored piece.
It just crisped up all the edges, and added a bit more dimension. 

Now it was time to create the card. 
I trimmed around the colored piece right along the edge of the die.
I placed it on pink cardstock and trimmed it leaving about 1/8" around.
Then I did the same again by placing it on a black card base.
This time I trimmed it leaving 1/4" around, with the fold at the top.
Finally, I added a pretty ribbon bow.


Such a beautiful die!


Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock;
Color: Sakura Souffle Pens;
Ribbon: Celebrate It;
Tools: Big Shot.

The Project Bin - When I Look At You...

Happy Wednesday, my friends!

Today I'm back with another project for The Project Bin
This week I'm sharing a sweet sentiment from the "Fun is Good" Stamp Set,
which you can find HERE.

I had a design in mind when I saw this sentiment,
and was so happy to find exactly what I wanted in Cricut Design Space.
The cut included just the little house on the right side.
After cutting it, I added the oval die cut to display my sentiment.
I backed the cut card front with white cardstock.
I stamped the sentiment in the oval,
and added some pink punched hearts to the house.


Finally, I added a pretty double bow.


Here's a closer look at the sentiment:


Materials Used:
Cut: Cricut Design Space - House Card;
Ink: Martha Stewart - Pink Geranium,
Stampin' Up - Tempting Turquoise;
Die: Tutti Designs - Stitched Nesting Ovals;

Miss Daisy Stamps DT - Spunky the Mouse

Hello, my friends!

Happy Valentine's Day to all of you! 
I hope you all know that you are loved! :o)

I have a new card to share with you today, 
using an image from Miss Daisy Stamps.

This one is called "Spunky the Mouse" image,
which you can find HERE.

Isn't he cute?
He's not a real mouse, so I can say that, right? lol

I colored him up with my Spectrum Noir markers,
and then fussy cut him out.
I matted my card with a matching blue cardstock.


I added two ribbon strips across the card front.
I punched a bunch of hearts out of red cardstock,
and scattered them about.


Finally, I popped Spunky up on foam squares.
Here's a closer look at the image:

Tutti Designs - One Final LOVE Card

Hello, my friends!

It's Monday, and I'm back with a new Tutti Designs share!

I have again combined two die sets.
This week it's the Nesting Stitched Ovals, and Word Set - Love Dies.

There are eight ovals in this fabulous set, and I used three of them.
The "Love" comes in two different sizes, and I used the larger one.


First, I made my card base and matted it.
Then I chose the oval that fit the "Love" die the best, and cut that out.
I chose two more papers and cut them out in the next two size ovals.
The largest oval was adhered flat to the base.
The two smaller ovals were popped up on foam tape.
It adds wonderful dimension.
Finally, I added a triple loop ribbon bow!


Here's a closer look at the dies:


Other Materials Used:
Papers: Basic Grey - Kissing Booth;
Ink: Distress Ink - Walnut Stain;
Ribbon: Offray - Brown.
