Loaded Valentine's Tag

Hello there! Jenn here today sharing my loaded Valentine's Day tag using the amazing dies from Tutti Designs!
For this project I used the following Tutti Dies:

For starters, these loaded tags look way more intimidating than they are to create! This is my first.
To create my base I used a #12 size giant black tag and three envelopes. The envelopes started as 5 1/4 X 6 and I cut the tops of at the opening to create 5 1/4 X 4 pockets. I lined them up on the tag to ensure a good fit as shown below.
Next, using patterned paper in different designs (Valentine's themed) I cut a total of 4 of the largest Dotted Nesting Rectangle Die. Also 3 black mats were cut at 3 3/4 X 5 and adhered to the front of the envelope pockets. These were then layered with three of the die cut rectangles. A piece of patterned paper was also cut to fit the top of the tag. This is optional of course.
Next the three matted and completed pockets were adhered to the tag cascading from top to bottom as shown below. Be sure to space them evenly apart and only adhere the bottom and sides leaving the top open to stuff!

Create tags using scraps of the themed paper and the Stitched Nesting Tags dies. Create various sizes and create a black mat for each by using one size bigger die.

I used the newly released Heart Potion Die to create one of my tag embellishments.
When using this die keep the hearts that come from the die and use them to embellish other areas as seen below.
Add embellishments, tags, cards, photo mats, pinwheels, etc. to stuff the tag!

This was such a fun project and will make a fun gift too!!

Happy Birthday Circle

Hello, Diane with you today using the
Tutti Designs Happy Birthday Circle die.
This is a great die especially if you need a quick birthday card
as it is gorgeous enough on it's own or just by adding a few details
like I did!

The first card I embossed a background panel,
then die cut from a pretty gold floral metallic paper,
and added a few gold purchased flowers.

The second card was just as easy,
this time adding a designer paper, a few glitter 'dots'
and coloring in only the leaves.

The last card has a bit more details on it
but still a super easy card.
The die was cut from a glitter and metallic paper
then added to a designer background paper,
a gingham bow, flower and a bit of rick rack trim to finish!!

Welcome Back Tutti Friends!
Darlene with you today and I'm once again dipping into my older
Tutti Designs dies to create a card of inspiration for you!
Dies used today are:
TUTTI-209 Doves In Love

TUTTI-216 Nesting Stitched Hearts

TUTTI-232  Word Set - Love

I began my card by die cutting the Birds in Love die twice,
once from white card stock and once from hot pink.
Next I did some fussy cutting so I would end up with just
the outside heart shape.
Next, I colored in the leaves and branches using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.
Then glued the hot pink heart over top of the white heart of the die cut.
I found the perfect leafy background designer paper and to mimic
a blue sky, I die cut a stitched heart from light blue card stock.
By reinserting the hot pink hearts that popped out of my pink die cut
and adding the word Love ... my card is ready to bring a smile!
My camera loves to play tricks with me when I'm photographing
inside my light box ... don't know why!!  LOL
It really is PINK ... not this 'orangy' color... ugh!
Please be sure to pop over to the Tutti Designs Store
and check out all of the fabulous dies available.

Birthday Present

Hi everyone!

Laurie here sharing a set of clean and simple cards I made with Tutti Designs Birthday Present die.

TUTTI-295 Birthday Present

First I traced around the die on white card stock and then cut it out.

  I cut out the presents in silver and gold foil and set those aside.  I adhered washi tape on the white pieces for a background. I chose washi that I thought would look good with the silver and gold. I have a ton of that took!  I adhered the presents onto the washi covered background,and I stamped my sentiments at the bottom of the cards.

I also added a black circle to the back of the blue presents for a bit of contrast.

TUTTI-419 Scalloped Stitched Nesting Circles

Here's a list of the dies I used:

Vintage Shaker Card

Hi everyone! Jenn here today sharing a fun Vintage shaker card created using the amazing Tutti Designs Dies!
There are so many ways to cut, trim, and turn these die cuts making them very versatile for all of your paper projects!
The Tutti Dies used here:
(click on photos to be directed to the online store)

For my card, I started with a 5 X 6 1/2 White base card blank
Starting with the inside of the card, cut pale pink card stock to 4 3/4 X 6 1/4. Rough the edges and ink with a brown tone. I used Distress Ink Vintage Photo. Adhere to inside panel of the card using tape runner or glue. Cut one large Dotted Nesting Rectangle Die from white card stock. Ink edges and adhere. Add some fussy cuts or stickers to embellish.

Next, we will build the panel for the front. Cut another piece of pale pink card stock to 4 3/4 X 6 1/4. Rough and ink the edges the same as the inside. Cut two of the largest Dotted Nesting Rectangles from Patterned paper. (be sure to cut them on the pattern sideways.)

Next we will create the shaker element.............
Use a Circle punch or circle die to punch the correct size from paper of choice. I used a piece of the same designer paper I used throughout the card with a picture. I also added a butterfly to it. Place sequins, dew drops, or other filler in shaker and finally adhere the cut circle and set aside to dry.

*TIP* My shaker base uses the largest circle however be sure to size yours with the die first to ensure the same result.

Using the two large Dotted Rectangle Die Cuts, Place them as shown below on your cutting pad with the large Cross Stitched Nesting Circle Die placed where you will put the shaker. I lightly traced over the circle in pencil so I could die cut them in the same spot.

Using scissors or a circle punch hollow out the circle die cut.

Adhere the two Dotted Rectangle die cuts to the pale pink, add the shaker element and then place these as shown and adhere using a strong glue.

Once it is dry and secure, add flowers, ribbon and some splatters of white and pink!
For my card, I used the Vine die to cut one from white card stock and then cut it into individual leaves to embellish.
