Ginger Jar


Hi, Nancy Hill for Tutti Designs Team and every Tuesday, I am excited to share a card with you using another gorgeous Tutti Designs die.  It was a lot of fun thinking about how to show case this gorgeous Tutti Designs' Ginger Jar die but came up with this card and hope it inspires you to create your next cards using these gorgeous Tutti Designs oriental dies such as this Tutti Designs Ginger Jar.  You will want to see the rest of the gorgeous February Tutti Designs oriental dies by clicking HERE.

Supplies:
Tutti Designs Ginger Jar TUTTI-273
Black and rust colored card stock, Gold Metallic card stock
Black and Gold Embossing powder
Aleene's Fast Grab Spray Adhesive
Black Fine Tip Pen
Ghost Line Poster Paper
Oriental Stamps

Instructions
Cut out 9  2"x 2" square with rust card stock and stamped each square with black or gold embossing powder.  Use a super fine point black ink pen to parts of the stamp designs. Adhere each square on a 7" x 7" black  card stock.  For the main base of the card, cut a 7" x 14" and score in the center and fold  (I always use a Ghost Line Poster Paper for my larger cards in order that the card won't warp and and will hold the shape). Cut out a 7" square frame using gold metallic card stock.  Adhere as shown on photo on card.

Cut out Ginger Jar with black, rust and gold metallic card stock.  Adhere the flowers and branch on the jar.  Adhere the Tutti Designs' Ginger Jar with 3D glue dots to the card.

Refer to my tutorial about using fabric softener sheets to do this technique and save a lot of work and time by clicking HERE.  This technique is very good about cutting out intricate dies as well as saving the tiny pieces for projects such as using these little flowers from the Tutti Designs Ginger Jar die.  I just peeled the jar and the tiny flowers stay on the fabric softener sheets.  Make sure not to use the fragrant fabric softener sheets since the tiny pieces will be too hard to get off and it leaves a film on the pieces as well as the large die cut. 




Now it is your turn to try this gorgeous Tutti Designs die and see what you create! Click HERE to see the  Tutti Designs dies.

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 .

Happy Crafting!

Daisy Panel Gate Fold Card

Hello, friends!

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

This week I'm using the lovely "Daisy Panel Die" from the October release.
You can find it right HERE.

Here's the gate fold card that I made:


Now I will show you how I made it.
Using a pretty, double-sided paper, I cut the die twice.
Here you see both sides of the paper; a printed side and a solid side.


Here I have turned them so that the printed side faces up on both. 
If you look closely, you can tell that the one on the left is wrong side up. 
An easy way to fix this is to run a bone folder over the edges of the die-cut to smooth them out. 


Next, I adhered each of the die-cuts onto the solid colored paper.


Setting those pieces aside, I went on to create the card base.
I cut a piece of cardstock that measured 10" X 6 1/2".
I scored this cardstock 2 1/2" from each end, folding towards the center. 
I adhered a ribbon along the middle of the card, beginning at the back, and wrapping around the front panels.


All that was left was to adhere the Daisy panels to the front of the card panels, and tie the ribbon in a bow.
Finally, I added a few random pearls in the centers of the flowers.



Here's the inside of the card. 
I added a Nesting Stitched Oval die-cut to the center.
The perfect spot to stamp a sentiment and add a message!

Tulip Corner


Hi Tutti fans! Today I am using my Tulip Corner die to create a sort of embossed background for the actual card.  Instead of it being the focal point I am using it against the patterned paper to for an embossed look or even sort of added texture.  Simply choose papers that are closely matched. 

I cut out two Tulip Corners and put them at opposite ends and you can see how the colors sort of blend well with one another to where it looks like it could be part of the paper.  I then added a chipboard flowers that I added some glitter to for the center piece,

I hope you enjoyed my card and thanks for stopping by but be sure to check out all the Tutti links

Tutti Designs Oriental Lantern and Lotus Blossom

Hi friends!  Today I'm sharing another project with Tutti Designs!  Tutti Designs has been busy creating away so many fabulous new dies so be sure to stop by the store and check out all the new releases!  Today I'm sharing an encouragement card using the 

This card started out being a little challenge and ended up being one of my favorite cards!
I actually had a rubber stamp that I forgot about and it turned out to be perfect with these beautiful dies.

To make this card I used black cardstock as a base.  This card measures 6x6.  The paper is from my stash.  (amazing what you find when you dig around) The stamp reads Faith Hope and Love.  I stamped it with Versa Mark and embossed it with Gold embossing powder to match my die cuts.

I used Gold foil card stock to cut my die cuts and I cut 2 of each.  I used foam tape to adhere the main card and then tucked one of the Lotus Blossom die cuts under the card background and used it as a doily.

The next step is to adhere the remaining die cuts. Offset the Oriental Lantern die cuts in the corner and just below that adhere the Lotus Blossom.


Tutti Designs dies are just so intricate and beautiful! There is new releases available in the store so keep watching because there is MORE TO COME
so keep checking back daily!

Giving cards is one of the most personal, thoughtful and encouraging things you can do for a friend or loved one.  All too often people send a text or use social media to send sentiments to people who sometimes could use a little more personal encouragement. 
The smile on a friend or family members face is worth it!

Swirly Pearly Simple Thank You Card


Autumn with you today to share a super quick and easy thank you card featuring our Swirly Thanks sentiment die.  I was so thankful to receive this die as a gift in the mail from a special someone.  ;0


One of my favorite ways to color my die cut outs is to use Distress embossing powder.  Here I inked the cutout with Versamark on my craft mat, then sprinkled on two colors of EP.  I added the blue where I wanted it, then flicked off the excess and repeated with the green.  A few pearls in the flower centers and a row of tiny pearls complete the card.


Purchase your Swirly Thanks die today HERE!

Praying Hands


Welcome back to my Tuesday's postings for Tutti Designs.  Hi, I am Nancy Hill and excited to share with you the very gorgeous Tutti Designs die called Praying Hands Egg.

I used the Recollection Mercury Glass card stock for the Praying Hands Egg die cut and adhered it to the card using Aleene Fast Grab Tacky adhesive spray after I had embossed the white shimmer paper using the Craft Concepts Embossing Folder Sun Rays.  




I used the same card stock for the outside frame and used the adhesive spray on the back of the shimmer paper to adhere to the card.  

I used the adhesive spray for the Tutti Designs Word Set Believe large die to the card (Each of the Tutti Designs Word sets have two sizes).  

Afterwards, I always add flowers to my cards. 



Supplies:
Tutti Designs Praying Hands Egg die
Tutti Designs Word Believe die set
Craft Concepts Embossing Folder A2 Sun Rays
Wild Orchid Craft flowers
Aleene Fast Grab Tacky Adhesive Spray
Tattered Lace Ivy Die

Easter Lilies Window Die

Hello, friends!

It's Nancy Nickel back today 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!

Sympathy

Happy Sunday Friends!
Darlene with you today sharing a card of Sympathy.
Sadly I find I'm in need of sympathy cards more and more as the years go by.  Using a couple of the beautiful dies available at the Tutti Designs Store, I can create a sympathy card and have it in the mail all on the same day when the need arises.  


The Tutti Designs dies I've used today are:

I didn't do anything 'special' on today's card other than add a little color sponging to the flowers and the center cross.


Since this lady really liked a touch of sparkle in her life, I felt it was appropriate to add a little touch of sparkle using Nuvo crystal drops to this creation.



Please be sure to pop over to the Tutti Designs Store and check out all of the fabulous dies in this latest release.  And, of course, you'll want to browse through the store to see what other dies you need to have on hand.
