Father And Daughter

Good Morning!
Back again on the Tutti Designs Blog.
This card was made with love, truly.  I have created it for my favorite son in law, Tim! 
(yes, you guessed it, I do only have one....but he is still my very most favorite!) 
My daughter, Lori, and her husband, Tim, just became first time parents
 to a beautiful little girl, Penelope Joy, on October 17th. 
When I saw this fabulous die in the Tutti Designs Store, I knew I had to have it!
Now, on with the show!
This card measures 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" and I will make a matching envelope for mailing.  I used this beautiful Father And Daughter die from the May 2017 Release.   I die cut it twice from Black card stock, layering the 2 together.  This gives the die a little bit more oomph for depth and dimension.

I displayed my die cuts and sentiment on hand cut panels and at a wonky angle.  I feel this gives the card a bit more interest too.  Adding a few accents using Sheer Ribbon and all manners of Adhesive Rhinestones.

I know this is a vision of what's to come.

Beneath the sentiment stamped in Raven Black ink,  I also stamped many little hearts in Pink Pirouette ink.  Gina K Designs stamp sets; Hand In Hand and Mommy To Be Diva.
A labor of love.
Here's what I used:

Get Well Wishes

Good Morning!
Back again on the Tutti Designs Blog
Today's card is a Get Well Wish using the fantastic Tutti Designs Nesting Stitched Banners die. 
It's clean.
It's simple.
It contains get well wishes.
I used 2 different sizes of the Nesting Stitched Banners dies,
one for my image and one for my sentiment. 
By just turning the die it creates an entirely different look, perfect for my Get Well Wishes
My tree was stamped in Walnut Oxide ink (as was my sentiment) and my pretty Fall Leaves were created by using a few different colored Copic Markers. 
The Pointillism Technique;
Pointillism /ˈpɔɪntɪlɪzəm/ is a technique of painting in which small, distinct dots of color are applied in patterns to form an image.
A couple of swipes with the wide end of my Copic Marker to create the ground beneath.  Adding a bit of texture using a Wood Grain Embossing Folder.  Orange and White Gingham Ribbon, Doily and Adhesive Pearls for accents.  I always buy White Adhesive Pearls in a bulk package.  Using my Copic Markers I can match any color to my card.

Falling Feathers

Back again on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog,
this time I am sharing a Masculine Birthday card with you.
It's clean.  It's simple.  It's manly.
I used the Poppystamps Tiny Feathers.  Using Black card stock I spritzed some Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Gold all over and then die cut.  I also cut some feathers out of Gold Foiled Paper.  I love the mix and match of these.  I also added 3 'falling feathers' on the inside of this card.
Found some Black, White and Gold Designer Paper in my stash for my background.  Created a textured center panel using White card stock and a Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.  The embossed panel was adhered to a strip of Black card stock which adds a nice little border on either side.
Sentiment Heat Embossed in Gold by Gina K Designs, Up And Away.  Nuvo Crystal Drops in Ebony for accents.
A perfect Masculine card.
Here's what I used:
