Tutti Designs Tool Frame

Hi everyone! 

Laurie here from Stamping Up North. I've been busy trying to get ahead making some Birthday cards I need soon, and actually even a Father's day card. I know, I's kind of early for that, but as long as I was making cards with Tutti's Tool Frame....I made a bunch! I just kept cutting it out in different colors and adding different sentiments in the middle.

 I LOVE this die!

TUTTI-314 Tool Frame

For my first card I cut a frame out in dark grey and also blue. Then I paper pierced the blue parts of the tools onto the grey. I cut out a couple of dotted nesting squares, and stamped my image.

TUTTI-416 Dotted Nesting Squares

I adhered them all together and added my tool frame, and a couple of enamel dots.

For the second card, I switched it up a bit. I used a lighter grey for the tools, and yellow for the tool handles. Then I cut out the tool frame in foil paper, and embossed just the middle section for a background. Then I inlaid it all.

I stamped my sentiment and added some enamel dots.

I made a bunch of cards with this frame, I'll share some more another time. I had fun making some for the gals that are handy with tools, and also did quite a few just using parts of the tool frame.

Here's a list of the dies I used:

And here are some Tutti Designs quick links:
