Kind Words

Hello Everyone and HAPPY MONDAY!

Darlene with you again today!
 I'm doing DT member, Nancy Nickel a favor since unfortunately
the postal service isn't being nice and she hasn't yet received her dies to create with!

So, please bear with me as this was a quick put together and I'm sure
Nancy will have a far better sample to share with you next week (if all goes well!).

Today I've used two of the newly released dies ...


For the Rose Edge panel, I die cut three times ... my main panel in white, then bright pink for the rose and again in a purple for the butterflies (even though the photo above shows more of a burgundy color).  A bit of coloring, fussy cutting and gluing ... Voila ...corner panel is ready for my card front

 After I found a nice subtle designer paper panel I adhered my rose edge to the bottom corner.  Well, that just didn't seem like enough so that's when I decided to use the Butterfly Corner for the upper right corner.
Once again I die cut it from white card stock ... then began coloring with coordinating colors from my collection of Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.

 I found an encouraging sentiment by Verve in my stash and it fit perfectly in the open spot that needed 'something'!  A touch of diamond Stickles here an there in the flower centers and my card was complete.
Colorful, Encouraging, and easy mailing.

There will be a NEW inspirational sample provided for you EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK here on our Tutti Designs Blog. Hopefully Nancy will receive her dies soon and be able to share her wonderfully creative style with you next week and in the weeks to come!
