Stitched Heart Flower Stems

This is my post on the Tutti Designs blog today.

Hi Tutti fans, today I have three cards using the
Stitched Heart Flower Stem die ...plus!

This die is so fun to use and will make wonderful cards
for about any occasion.
I know some think that hearts are just for Valentines
but that just isn't so, as our world needs more love
and what better way to express that but with a few hearts!!

For the first card I used a gingham background and
die cut my heart stems from a patterned paper...
so much detail in this with all the stitching on each little heart!
Of course I had to add a matching bow to finish off!


The second card IS more for Valentines...
I used a heart background paper then die cut
the heart stems twice, once from red card
and once from bright blue metallic
then layered them.

I also used another fabulous Tutti Designs die
Love Heart Edge, also cut from the same blue metallic.
This time I added a bright blue bow.


The third and last card I once again used a gingham
background paper.
I die cut two different size Tutti Designs Banners
then layered one on the other for my
Heart Stems to 'rest' on.
Another bow was added...
I know by adding bows it adds to the postage to mail,
but if you are like me,
I don't mind spending the extra to mail a special card to a special someone!


I will be back NEXT Tuesday and all through February 
every Tuesday using more of the many Tutti Designs Heart dies!

Paper Sweeties January 2020 New Release Party!

HI there!
It's release time for Paper Sweeties meaning that the new January Sweet Kits
are now ready for purchase!
This kit is loaded with supplies and today I am using the
We Go Together Stamps and Sweet Cuts dies.
all links to this kit and a bit of info are listed below.



I started out by using a strip of parchment paper
and running it through my crimper.
I always save my strips of paper when I trim my papers
as you never know when they might come in handy...
like this pretty pale pink strip
that I stamped part of the sentiment on.
I also punched a circle for the second part of the sentiment.



I added the cute cup and donuts
all popped up at various levels.
I used a glitter pen to add  'sprinkles' to each donut.
To finish and to add a bit more sparkle I added three
Raspberry Sequins.

Make sure to head on over to the Paper Sweeties blog
and see all the fabulous creations from the team...
Here is the list of links to help you hop along!

Happy Birthday Butterflies

Design Team Member At

Today is a new challenge theme at
and it couldn't be any easier as it is
Happy Birthday!

I know I can certainly always~always use birthday cards
how about you?

My card came together super easy using a
NEW Tutti Designs die
'Asian Screen' as my focal point.


I die cut just a small part of it in white to capture the bottom butterfly
and again for the hearts in the top right butterfly
then pieced them in.

I added a fun birthday banner using Lawn Fawns Wavy Sayings Stamps
and Fancy Wavy Banners dies.

I added a few gems and my card was done.


Make sure and visit the Dies R Us Challenge blog
to more beautiful inspiration from my teammates!!

We have some exciting news to share with you.  .Dies R Us now has a sister store with warehouses in the USA and Canada called Didi Crafts

Balloons Challenge

It's a new challenge at Double D today and our theme is
'BALLOONS'

Look at the pretty AND bright mood board we have

I toyed with the idea of stamps/dies and regular balloons/hot air balloons.

But then I remembered I had just purchased this fun 
Animal Party Bus die from Cottage Cutz!
Wowzers, what an 'operation' this was...
31 tiny pieces in all...
but I don't think it could be any cuter.
These party animals just make me smile!!


Here is a close up of all their little details!


 I had a few little mishaps along the way, but all in all they turned out pretty cute!

Love Butterfly Frame

This is my post on the Tutti Designs blog today

Hi Tutti Fans!!
today I have three cards using the gorgeous
Love Butterfly Frame.
This is such a beautiful die and can be used for any occasion!

The first card is made in totally white....
wouldn't this be an amazing wedding card?

I added an embossed swirl background and three white
purchased flowers.  
The die itself was cut in a shimmery white card stock...
luscious!!


The next card is for a friend.
I once again embossed a background, die cut a heart opening
then added the love butterfly frame around it.
I added a sentiment and gem heart in the heart cutout
and a bit of 'lace' trim at the bottom.


Last but not least I simply once again used a swirl embossing folder,
then simply added foil strips down the side and die cut the frame from foil as well.


I hope you have enjoyed my cards today and I have given you
three different ideas for inspiration using this 'must have' die.

Bubbles~Bubbles~Bubbles

I once again took a little time to myself
and had fun creating a card for the new theme
'Bubble Bath Day'
at 

I am not sure of you are familiar with this challenge
as it is a relatively new one that I discovered
a while back.

When I saw this challenge I had to really put my thinking cap on
and then remembered I had an old Stampendous stamp (2006) 
'Relaxing Bubbles'
with a bunny in a tub in my House Mouse drawer of stamps.


I also had a Deep Red stamp that looks  like bubbles to me
but is labeled Water Droplets Background.

I used the brand new Tutti Designs Stitched Hexagon 
to stamp my bunny on and colored her/him with Copics.
The sentiment is an old SU
and the background paper is Kaiser 'On This Day'.


Here is a closeup of this cutie!!
It feels so good to use some of these older stamps and supplies
right along with the new!

As well as entering the challenge above,
I will also be entering in the following challenges!

Hearts Twofer

It's a very windy, and I mean windy day full of rain and gloom
and a perfect day to be in my creative room.

I have lots of things I should be working on
but decided since it is Sunday I could take the day off
and have a little fun with a challenge!


When I saw the new Twofer challenge was hearts
I immediately thought of a new Tutti Nesting die set I had
just received last week and created with that.


The first card I die cut 3 hearts and made them into birthday balloons.
I drew the strings on and a added a twine bow to 'tie' them together.


For the second card, using the same die, I cut four
and made this card into a Valentine....
the inside sentiment says 'everything'.


So that is my twofers for the challenge.

Supplies used for card #1:
Spellbinders HemStitch Oval
Lawn Fawn Wavy Banner Sayings & Die

Supplies used for Card #2:
Candy Hearts Embossing Folder
Flourishes Love Sweet Love Sentiment

For Both Cards:

Thinking of You

Happy 2020!!

The 'sistahs' have returned to 
with a new challenge  for 2020 and a fun theme of
'Thinking of You'
chosen and being hosted by our 'sistah' Debbie!!

I have a monster/huge stash of gorgeous design papers and
sometimes they just need to take center stage don't you think?

That's what I did today.
I love this beautiful paper from Anna Griffin
that has been sitting around forever!
It is The Rose Collection from 2016...yep THAT long!


I just added it to a black card base
then cut the 'thinking of you' from my very neglected Cricut!
I used a Sue Wilson die and popped up two little birdies.

I kind of like how this turned out and an easy mailer at that!

Make sure to visit at The Sisterhood as my 'sistah's have
created some very beautiful cards for inspiration!!

Fancy Heart Cat

This is my post on the Tutti Designs blog today.

Hi, Diane here with my first post of the new year.

Being a owner of several cats myself I really fell for this
adorable Fancy Hearted Cat die.

For the first card I used an embossed a background
then die cut my cat from white card stock.
The hearts were colored in with a red Copic.


The second card was just as quick as the die cut cat is such
a nice size that it takes center stage on the card front.
I used a tiny heart paper for the background
and a lace trim at the top.
I added little heart glitter stickers for a different look from the card above.
