Face to Face In the Wedding


Tutti Designs has made stunning dies in their April Release folder for weddings and anniversaries.  I have used the
 Tutti Designs Couple Panel die for this card.  Below is the die cut of the Couple Panel die without cutting the edges that I did for this card to fit the Sue Wilson Designs background frame die.   I used NUVO Crystal Drops for the roses and center of the roses.  I used rhinestones for the earrings.  I added a white bow for the card.  

Now it is your turn to try this gorgeous Tutti Designs die and see what you create! Click HERE to see the  Tutti Designs dies.

Splash and Bubbles


Welcome back and excited to share with you a very fun card for my little grandson who loves to occasionally watch the PBS Splash and Bubbles show about stories of adventures of cartoon sea creations.  The card measures 6" x 6" and I made  this card with the 



The Rubber Buggy on-line store carries all of these supplies to make this card.  They offer great customer service and fast delivery on all of your orders. 


I didn't have the dies that go with this collection which would have been easier and more precise but I cut out some of the fish and shells from the Heartfelt Creations Under the Sea paper collection and molded each with my fingers and adhere the 3D foam tape and tape it on top  the fish or shell. By doing this, the fish and shell as well as the sea horse pops out.  I wish that my photos would show the appearance of the 3D look and it looks like an aquarium of fish, shells and sea horses.   

I applied NUVO Crystal-Ivory Seashell drops for the one fish.  I stamped and cut out this fish from an ole stamp set to make this fish different from all of the rest.  I applied NUVO Embellishment Mousse-Aqua Marine around some of the paper to bring out a sheen to look more like water.  I use my fingers and sometimes a sponge to apply the mousse on my projects.  The Aqua Marine color matches this paper very well.  The color shows especially around the Happy Birthday label and I wanted the label to blend in with the water.

The Wedding Dance


I am so excited to share with you the gorgeous Tutti Designs Wedding Canopy die in the Tutti Designs April Release folder.  Also, I added the Tutti Designs Forever Word Set die on this card that was die cut with silver glitter card stock.  

Tutti Designs Wedding Canopy

I cut out two wedding canopies with white shimmer card stock and sponged Ranger Pink ink to the frame of the canopy.  I used tape to the back of the pink frame to adhere the white pieces before gluing the canopy on the card.  This made it much easier to add the white pieces.  I cut out the wedding couple with white shimmer card stock and lightly sponged the same pink ink to make the wedding couple stand out from the white card stock behind the couple.  I used Heartfelt Creations Blushing Rose paper collection and Bazzill green card stock for the background.  

I cut out the Tutti Designs Forever Word set and glued it on a banner.  I had this metal double heart and adhered it also to the banner before adding the pink bow. 

Now it is your turn to try this gorgeous Tutti Designs die and see what you create! Click HERE to see the  Tutti Designs dies.

Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day and hope you are having a good weekend.  

I made this Mother's Day card for my daughter with supplies from The Rubber Buggy on-line store.

I love making flowers and used the Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose and Heartfelt Creations Sunrise Lily dies and stamp sets.  






I love how these roses came out and appears to be lacy.  This time, I made the Heartfelt Creations Classic Roses using heavier weight vellum paper and stamped with white embossing powder.  One petal for the center of the rose was cut out with shimmer white card stock.  Therefore, five vellum petals and one petal cut out with shimmer cardstock. I sprayed the vellum flower petals twice lightly with water and using my fingers, scrunched each petal.  Let dry for a few minutes and with will be stiff for making the flower.



I love the NUVO Mousse since it give a gorgeous satin shine to my flowers, etc.  Using my fingers and sponge, I applied NUVO Mousse - Pink to the back of each petal and lightly on the tip in the center of the rose,  

Since the vellum paper didn't take glue well, I used a hot glue gun to make my pink and white roses. 



I cut out the Heartfelt Creations Sunrise Lily with shimmer card stock and it was embossed with Ranger Gold embossing powder and sponged with NUVO Mousse colors of Peony Pink and Aquamarine.  The stamen was cut out with silver glitter card stock.  

The Heartfelt Creations Fleur Border was cut out with the same shimmer card stock as the card.

Flowering Dogwood Happy Birthday

The Rubber Buggy on-line store carries all of these supplies to make this card.  They offer great customer service and fast delivery on all of your orders. 

 I made this card using the Heartfelt Creations paper, dies and stamps besides the NUVO Crystal Drops and NUVO Mousse that comes in so many colors.  

Do you know that if you use a wonderful stamping tool like the MISTI that Rubber Buggy carries, you can do so many different techniques in stamping.
 I couldn't live without this very VERY important stamp tool.  I was able to stamp these flowers twice with the Ranger pink ink and then stamp it again twice with Ranger clear embossing powder or any clear or clear glitter embossing powder that you have on hand.  If you don't have a lot of colors of embossing powders, this is one technique that you can use with any type of ink besides pigment ink but only with a stamping tool like the MISTI.

I just love the prills for the center of my flowers.  I took my fingers and dipped it in the NUVO Aqua Mist Mousse and applied it to the center of the flowers and glued mini prills in the center.  I added NUVO Apple Green Crystal Drops to the pattern flowers and the small die cut flowers.  I colored the small die cut dogwoods with colored pencils and Copic markers.

I just love the Heartfelt Creations Decorative Oval.  I added 5mm flatback pearls.
