Happy Birthday Violin

Good Morning!
 
Donna Phelan back again on the Tutti Designs Inspiration Blog!

  Today I will be sharing a Masculine Birthday card with you.
 
The Tutti Designs Store has so many wonderful dies for all of your card making needs!  This month we are enjoying Musical Instruments, check out the June Release!  So many instruments and each and every one amazingly detailed!
 
Here's the great die I chose to use for today!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I die cut this fantastic Violin from Chipboard and Brown card stock, layered the 2 together and then backed with a piece of White card stock so the details would show through.  I then smooshed Versa Mark ink all over the front of the cut, covered it with Clear Embossing Powder, heated it to seal, and now I had an awesome shiny, glossy Chipboard die cut to play with! 
 
 
 

 
 
I thought to show off this wonderful instrument I would create a wood grained background.  Taking my White card stock I scored every 1/2 inch.  Then using many inks I just swiped them up and down the scored paper until I got the look I liked.  I think the background really compliments the wooden Violin.  Stamped some musical notes and my Happy Birthday sentiment in Raven Black, which I also covered and heated with Clear Embossing Powder, to add some shine. Both stamp sets by Gina K Designs; Just A Note and Birthday Blessings.  And why place the panel on straight when you can add a jaunty look to it and make it all wonky???

Double D, Balck & White With a POP Of Color

Good Morning!

A brand new Challenge is up and running over at the Double D Challenge Blog. 

Here's something to get you in the mood to create:

 
And here's what I created:
 
 
 
I started with a Papertrey Ink die cut from the Shakers And Sprinkles Kit and then added the dotted cut outs using their Mix And Mat Flourish die.  I stamped one of the floral images from the Penny Black, Blooming Gardens, stamp set 3 times, once on the die cut panel and then two more times on White card stock which I fussy cut out. (the 3rd time I only used the yellow blossoms)
 
 

 
 
Images colored with Copic Markers.  Stickles in Yellow and Lime Green for some sparkle.  Nuvo Crystal Drops in Ebony for accents.  My sentiment is stamped in Raven Black ink and is from the Power Poppy set, Potted Primroses
 
 


 
 
I took the Black And White With A POP Of Color.....literally!  lol  Yellow Blossoms popped up using Foam Dots.  Love the dimension it creates.
 
 

 
 
Please come on over to the Double D Blog and join in all of the FUN!  You'll be glad you did, because there is a wonderful prize up for grabs!
 
Thanks so much for coming by.....now go play along!
 
Enjoy~~

Just A Note

 
Good Morning!
 
Donna Phelan back again on the Tutti Designs Inspiration Blog.

  Today I m sharing an elegant Golden Harp card with you all. 
 
The Tutti Designs Store has so many wonderful dies for all of your card making needs!  This month it's all about Musical Instruments, check out the June Release!
 
 
I used this FUN little die from Tutti Designs.  Again, so much detail! 
 
 
 
 
 
I knew immediately that this Harp had to be Gold Foiled, no ifs, ands, or buts about it!
Zing went my harp strings....or something like that!  :)
 
 
 
 
I first die cut the Harp from Chipboard and then Toner Paper, which I proceeded to run through my Mini Minc Machine with Gold Foil.  I then layered the 2 together to make a lovely chipboard piece.  I want my die cuts to come to life with a bit of depth and dimension.  If you notice when cutting dies from card stock or Designer Paper (alone) the cuts tend to lay there and look flat.  I find by adding a layer or 2 makes it really POP and gives it a life all of its own!
 
 
 

 
 
I added lots of Gold Foil accents.  My Designer Paper was foiled as were the layers between.  I even Heat Embossed my sentiment in Gold Powder tying it all together.  Gina K Designs, Just A Note stamp set.  Raven Black ink.

Piano Music

Good Morning!
 
Donna Phelan back on the Tutti Designs Inspiration Blog. 

Here's a great little card full of friendship and song.
 
The Tutti Designs Store has so many wonderful dies for all of your card making needs!  This month it's all about the music!  Just check out these glorious musical instruments in the June Release.   
 
I used this fabulous Piano  from Tutti Designs!  So much detail!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
There is so much detail in this Piano die I wanted to make sure I captured it all.  I first cut the die out in a White Glitter Paper.  Then I backed the negative spaces with Black Glitter Paper and Gold Foiled Toner Paper.  It really makes all of that amazing detail POP!   I even think Liberace would enjoy playing this!  
 
 
 
 

 
 
 I also added Corner Tab Punches to frame in my focal image.  A beautiful sentiment and musical notes from Gina K Designs, Just A Note stamp set, to compliment my amazing Piano  and I was done.  Raven Black ink.  This card really SINGS!!!

Double D, Pastel Party

Good Morning!

A brand new Challenge is up and running over at the Double D Challenge Blog. 






Here's what I created. 

And don't worry this was made in April so, no, I did not miss Mother's Day!


 
 
 
These are pastel colors, but I think my lighting makes them look brighter.  My pretty pink card stock has Swiss Dots texture added.  Then I layered the  Papertrey Ink die, Mix And Mat--Flourishes on top.  My flowers are by Cheery Lynn, Cherry Blossom.  Each flower has an Adhesive Pearl center.  Inside are 2 corner dies (top right, bottom left) also by Cheery Lynn, Lace Corner Deco H.   
 
 

 
 
My sentiment is by MFT, Sweet Roses and is stamped in Brutus Monroe Raven Black ink onto a PTI die cut, Fun Frames.    I colored a bit of natural twine with a Copic Marker and attached my Heart charm to the Sheer Pink Ribbon and Bow for accent.  Then added a few more Adhesive Pearls.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Now head on over to the Double D Blog and join in all of the FUN!  Another wonderful prize is up for grabs!
 
Here's the awesome prize for the Pastel Party Challenge!
