Bunny Card

Hi, I am Nancy, Design Team for Tutti Designs.  I am amazed of all of the beautiful dies from Tutti Designs and excited to share with you one of the Easter dies in the Tutti Designs' January release called Scrolly Bunny.   




Supplies:
Tutti Designs Scrolly Bunny
Egg template
Patterned Paper
1/2" wide lace
1/8" wide ribbon
Ghostline Poster Board
Flowers
Leaves
Elastic ribbon
1/8" and 1/2" Scor-Tape




INSTRUCTIONS:  
I found this template on the web and used a photo editing software to enlarge it to 5" to 6 1/2".  I copied the template on computer paper and cut it out.  I traced the template twice on the back of the pattern paper and cut the two egg-shaped die cuts out.  



Since I make larger cards, I like using the Ghostline Poster Board.  Since it is a heavy weight paper, it does not warp and I find it best for making larger cards. 

On the Ghostline poster board paper, the lines show only on one side of the poster board.  I used the Ghostline side for the front and back of my card since it will be entirely covered when the card is completed.  Since the inside card of the poster board doesn't show the lines, it is perfect for using as the inside of my card for stamping the sentiment and signing the card.  


I traced the template and overlapped it in the center to fold the card.  Cut this out and score down the center and fold.  

First:  I glued the one pattern paper on the back and cut the remaining pattern paper that over laps to part of the front of the card.  

Second:  I used  1/8" wide Scor-Tape to tape the elastic ribbon on the back of the egg-shape pattern paper and glue this on the poster board that will be the front of the card (see below).

Front of Card

I cut a 2 1/2" x 5" white shimmer card stock and used my template to cut around the ends of this white card stock to fit on the egg. I embossed the bottom of the white strip with a embossing folder and stamped the "Happy Easter" and glued it on the card.

I used 1/8" wide Scor-Tape across the top and bottom of the white strip and taped the lace and ribbon across the egg.  I used 1/2" Scor-Tape to tape my bow before adding the flowers and leaves.   I glued the Tutti Designs Scrolly bunny on the card.  

Last:  I used NUVO Crystal Drops - Ivory Seashell for the embossed flowers and top of the sentiment.  Now, this card is ready to be sent around Easter Time.

Love Heart Circle Card

Hello, my friends!

It's Monday, and it's Nancy Nickel back with a new Tutti Designs share!

This week I have made a very simple card using the Love Heart Die.
You can find it in the store right HERE.

I created a pink circle card base, and added a white mat.
I cut the die out of self-adhesive glitter foam.
I peeled off the backing, and placed the die onto the card.
It was a little bit tricky at this point.
The die is really intricate but the foam is quite stretchy.
I laid the die-cut down softly until I liked where it was.
Then I pressed it down into place.



Then I simply added a ribbon bow to the top of the card.


Here's a closer look at the cut.
The glitter shows it off beautifully!

I'll be back next week with a new project.

Colorful Butterflies

Happy Sunday Friends!
Darlene with you today, sharing a card of color and beauty using a die 
from the fabulous Tutti Designs Store.


Today I've used the beautiful Butterfly Dance die from the November Release.

No automatic alt text available.

 I knew I wanted to bring full focus to this beautiful die so I created a colorful panel to die cut from using Ken Oliver color burst.  I was in a hurry (imagine that) and die cut my panel before it was dry, but I recommend if you use this technique that you wait awhile before die cutting ... makes the little pieces come out easier.



Speaking of those little pieces that pop out and typically get thrown away ... be watching for those that can be used as an extra accent to your creation as I have done today.


Please be sure to pop over to the
and check out all of these fabulous dies.

Verdigris Embossing Die Cuts Tutorial


Hello!  Autumn with you today to share a fun mixed media approach to using die cuts.  I am absolutely in love with the Elegant Love Bird die!  I wanted to give it a  cool enamel of some sort, so first I embossed it with aqua blue embossing powder.  Next, I used my Distress Crayons to give some highlights and shadows.  I used teal and green.  I still wasn't happy, so I lightly rubbed more Versamark ink onto it and applied copper embossing powder.  The copper melted with the blues creating very unique effect, a verdigris of sorts, or copper patina if you will.  I layered with another Elegant Love Bird cut from metallic brown cardstock to create more depth.


I used an embossing folder and kraft cardstock for the background.  I applied Picket Fence Distress paint to the raised areas and then sprayed the entire panel with Perfect Pearls mist.  I created a nest from shredded book pages and added some coordinating Prima flowers to finish it off.


You can try this technique with any of your Tutti Designs dies, but you can find the Elegant Love Bird HERE if you've fallen in love with him too!  :)

Sympathy Card

Welcome back and have you seen the gorgeous Tutti Designs Word sets in the Tutti Designs December release.  Check HERE to see all 20 Word die sets.
Each word comes in two sizes and I have cut out both of the sizes to show you up close what each one would look like on my card.  




I used the larger Sympathy die on the my card.  The word dies are easy to cut out. I glued Sympathy on a gorgeous patterned card stock and added a ribbon.  I used NUVO Crystal Raspberry Pink drops to the corner and below the sentiment.  


Click HERE to see the  Tutti Designs dies but also watch for the January new released dies coming soon.
Reminder to visit the Tutti Designs Blog to see what our other designers have created for you.  Explore more ways of using this die as well as other Tutti Designs dies, visit our Tutti Designs designers on the Tutti Designs Pinterest or Tutti Designs Facebook .

Butterfly Dance

Hello, friends!

It's Nancy Nickel back with a new Tutti Designs share!

Today I'm sharing the gorgeous Butterfly Dance Die,
which you can find HERE.

Isn't it beautiful? 
I really love this one! :o)

I began with this pretty decorative paper.
Doesn't it suit the die perfectly?
I centered the die on the paper and ran it through my Big Shot.
Then I matted the page with brown cardstock.
  I cut the die again out of a really pretty shimmer cardstock that matched.
I adhered this piece into the space cut in the decorative paper.


Here's a closer look at the detail:


All it needed was the addition of a pretty ribbon bow!

All we need is 'Love'!

Happy Sunday Friends!
Darlene with you today, sharing a card of LOVE using a die 
from the fabulous Tutti Designs Store.
With Valentine's Day right around the corner and wedding season really not that far off, I decided to do a classic black, white & red creation that could be used for either occasion!  Or a spouses birthday for that matter!
 I've used this beautiful Love Heart die from our November release as my focus today!
No automatic alt text available.
 My first thought was to simply cut it twice (from red and white) then just simply offset the two dies for my focus image.  Which is a beautiful design in itself ... 





 But then after some rethinking, I thought it would be even prettier if I cut the hearts from the red die cut panel and adhered them to the white panel before mounting it to my black background.  YES ... I like this idea even better ... what do you think?



You could use just about any background die you have in your collection ... or simplify it even more by just using a solid black background as your anchor.  A few little pearls ... or in this case Nuvo crystal drops, and your card is ready for giving.

OH and I forgot to mention, I did POP UP my Love Heart by simply adding a little dimensional tape behind each heart and 2 narrow strips behind the word.


Please be sure to pop over to the
and check out all of these fabulous dies.
