It's from the collection called "Bird's View"

I colored up the sweet image with my markers.
Then I just played with some fun dies and the paper.




Here's a closer look at the image:

Tutti Designs - Glowing Candle Die

Hello, my friends!

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

I'm happy to be sharing another one of the new Christmas release dies.
This one is called "Glowing Candle" die.
You can find it right HERE.

I've combined it with the Stitched Nesting Tags die to make a sweet little tag card.
This would be perfect attached to a Christmas gift.


I began by inserting a folded piece of kraft cardstock into the tag die.
By ensuring the fold is just inside the top cutting die,
it won't cut through.
Then I cut the Glowing Candle die from dark blue cardstock.
I thought it would be a nice change from the black I usually use.
I punched a scrap of yellow paper with a 1 1/4" circle punch.
This fits perfectly behind the die.


After adhering these pieces in place on the tag base,
I filled in some spots with the Stickles.
Finally, I added a bow to the top and the front of the tag was complete.
Here's a closer look:


Then I did some simple stamping to the inside of the tag.


Wouldn't this dress up a simple package beautifully? 


Other Materials Used:
Paper: Recollections - Cardstock;
Punch: EK Success - 1 1/4" Circle Punch;
Ribbon: Offray;
Stickles: Red, Green, Star Dust.

This week I have an art journal page to share.
This page was inspired by this sweet image from Little Blue Button Stamps.
It's called "Sophie with Umbrella" and you can find it HERE.

I began by using the "Print then Cut" feature on my Cricut Explore Air.
I coloured the image with my Spectrum Noir Markers.
I created the sentiment on my computer, printed it, and cut it out.
(You'll find this on my "Free Stuff" Page)
With all the pieces ready, I just needed to create the background.
I did this using distress inks for the sky and the grass. 
I used a fun mask from Magenta to create the grass edge.
I used the Raindrops stencil from FabScraps to create the rain.
Finally, I glued the sentiment and image in place.
This was so much fun to make! :o)






Materials Used:
Dylusions Art Journal;
Coloring: Spectrum Noir Markers;
Inks: Distress Inks - Broken China, Faded Jeans,

Tutti Designs - Nativity Ornament Die

Hello, my friends!

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

This week I'm sharing another beautiful die from the Christmas in July release.
This one is the "Nativity Ornament" die,
and you can find it HERE.

Again, it's a lovely die that offers many creative options.

I knew that I wanted to cut the die out of black cardstock
to get that wonderful silhouette effect.
I wanted yellow behind it to reflect the glow of the star.
I was originally going to trim the yellow to fit just behind the die.
However, I decided I really liked the die placed on the larger piece of yellow.


I used the Stitched Nesting Rectangle die to cut the yellow cardstock.
Then I adhered it onto a black card base.
Finally, I added mini black rhinestones, and a black ribbon bow.


Here's a closer look at the die-cut.
I added one final sparkle sticker to represent the star.


Other Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock;
Bling: Crafts - Mini Rhinestones, Sparkle Sticker;
Ribbon: Celebrate It.
