Tutti Designs - Whimsical Love Tree

Hello, my friends!

It's Monday, and I'm back with a new Tutti Designs share!

Today I am featuring the lovely Whimsical Love Tree Die,
which you can find HERE.

This is another die that is lots of fun to play with.
I started with my polka dot background, and matted it with a coordinating paper.
Then I chose another coordinating paper, with a smaller scale, to cut the die.
I adhered the die to the polka dot paper,
and filled a number of the open hearts with red Liquid Pearls.
It adds such a pretty shimmer, and makes the hearts stand out.


I fussy cut the focal butterfly from a second cut of the die,
and popped it up to add some dimension.
I also popped up a folded heart on top of the Liquid Pearl heart beneath the butterfly.


Finally, I scattered the little die-cut hearts around the page.


Obviously, this die is great for Valentine's Day.
However, with a few changes, I can see it working for baby cards, birthday cards, and lovely Spring cards too!


Other Materials Used:
Papers: Bo Bunny - Crazy Love;
Liquid Pearls - Rouge.

Cards and More Shop Blog DT - Hugs & Kisses Birthday Card

Hello, my friends! 

I'm back with a new project made with products from the Cards and More Shop .

This is a simple card but so pretty with this gorgeous paper!
I didn't want to cut the paper down, so I used the full 6 X 6.


I layered it on some pretty green cardstock.
I die-cut some more green card stop and stamped it with pink ink.


Here's a closer look at the sentiment from Jane's Doodles:


  I added some pretty pearl swirls from Marianne Design.
Isn't the paper lovely?


Finally, I added a pretty shear ribbon bow in soft pink.


Other Materials Used:
Ribbon - Celebrate It;
Ink: Martha Stewart - Pink Geranium;
Die: Spellbinders Nestabilities - Labels 40.

The Project Bin - In My Heart Mini Album Part 2

Happy Wednesday, my friends!

It's time for another share from The Project Bin

* * * * *
This is Part 2 part of my mini album share, 
featuring the newly released In My Heart Stamp Set.
You can find it right HERE
This fabulous set includes SEVEN stamps and TWO dies!
With all that goodness to play with, I was inspired to make a mini album.
If you missed Part 1 you can find it right HERE.

* * * * *
We'll begin today with another two-page spread.



Here's a closer look at the left side.
I cut the tag from black cardstock.
I stamped the fun sentiment with Versamark ink,
and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder.
I added a bit of trim, some twine to the top, and adhered it to the page.


Here's the right side.
I cut the decorative paper to fit, and then die-cut the heart from the center.
I didn't like the idea of the black heart,
so I cut a heart from the red polka-dot paper and adhered it in the open spot.


Here's the second two page spread for today.


The left-hand side was covered with another coordinating paper,
and then I added the red pennant.
For the "love" I inked up just the one word from one of the sentiments,
and stamped it three times with white ink.



Here's the final page for today.
I stamped and cut both the polka-dot heart, and the XOXO,
and added it to the page.



Other Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock, Fancy Pants - Love Note Paperpad;
Embossing Powder: Ranger - Detail White;
Ink: Versamark, Memento - Tuxedo Black;
Dies: Sizzix Thinlits Die Set - Mini Album.

Tutti Designs - Hanging Love Die

Hello, my friends!

It's Monday, and I'm back with a new Tutti Designs share!

With Valentine's Day coming up next month,
now is the time to be thinking about making those cards.
If you haven't been to the Tutti Designs Shop lately,
you really must go take a look at the November Release section.
It's filled with amazing dies to create cards for those you love!

For my card today, I used the wonderful "Hanging Love" die.
You can find it right HERE.

It's another one of the fabulous Tutti Designs that makes a beautiful card very quickly and easily.
I simply chose some pretty papers that were coordinating.
Layered one on the matching card base for the background,
and used another one to cut the lovely die.


I then cut two decorative strips from an additional coordinating paper.
A narrow strip was added to the top, 
and a second wider one was added to the bottom.



Here's a closer look at just the cut.
One bonus of this particular die is that it also cuts out all those wonderful little hearts. 
I didn't need them for this project but will certainly use them on another one. 


Other Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock, Prima - Madeline Collection.
