Tammy Tutterow Designs - Ice Cream Happiness



Hi Friends! I'm here today with some inspiration for Tammy Tutterow Designs. I can't tell you how much fun her new stamps are to play with. Her new Tiny Sentiments stamp set can be mixed and matched with so many stamps you already have on hand or you can pair them up with other sets of Tammy's designs. The sentiment set comes with 11 different sayings and designs. Here, I used Tammy's Ice Cream Cone stamp and die set and paired it with one the Tiny Sentiments stamps.

Like the background? Well, that's one of Tammy's new stencil sets from Stencil Girl. Her stencils are large and can easily cover a 5" x 7" card. I love it! This card was so much fun to create and so simple to put together. I've provided step-by-step instructions below. Enjoy!


Step 1: Cut white card stock to 4-3/4" x 6-3/4".
Step 2: Using white embossing paste, apply stencil to background and allow to completely dry.
Step 3: Add a border to the top and bottom of the panel.
Step 4: Color ice cream cone and cut out using the matching die that comes with stamp set.
Step 5: Stamp out sentiment and cut around the perimeter with scissors.
Step 6: Adhere ice cream cone and sentiment onto the embossed card panel.
Step 7: Add burlap twine and some buttons to the bottom portion of the card panel.
Step 8: Add finished card panel to 5" x 7" piece of pink card stock and you're done!


I think this is such a cute card and I can't wait to send it to someone just to put a smile on their face. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Get In Shape



Hi Friends, I'm so happy your stopped by! I hope you had a wonderful weekend filled with fun and that you're ready to Get In Shape. That's the theme this week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. For this challenge, forget the flat circles and squares and create something three dimensional. I created a large beautiful dimensional flower for my card.

Also, don't forget to check out our amazing and talented guest designer for the month of July, Beulah Bee. Did you see her project last week? It was amazing!! Stop by and send her some love. ♥






Begin with a 4-3/4" x 6-3/4" piece of Bristol watercolor paper and apply Broken China and Evergreen Bough Distress Ink with a mini ink blending tool.





Stamp on the Tim Holtz Cracks background stamp to the center with Broken China Distress Oxide ink.





Spray Mermaid Lagoon Distress Spray and water onto a craft mat and mix together. Pick up the card panel and run it through the ink and water mixture.





Let the ink and water mixture completely dry before moving on to the next step.





Now that the panel is completely dry, add some Tim Holtz design tape to the center of the panel.





Next, apply some Black Soot Distress Paint and water onto a craft mat and mix with the Tim Holtz Splatter Brush. Using the brush, flick the diluted paint onto the card panel to create splatters. Dry the splatters with a heat tool. When the spatters are completely dry, run the edge of an old gift card through the paint and water mixture. Take the gift card with the painted edge and add lines in random areas on the card panel by gently touching the gift card to the paper. The background is finished and needs to completely dry.





While the card panel is drying, prepare the watercolor paper for the flower. Spray Fossilized Amber  and smudge some Scattered Straw Distress Ink onto a craft mat and dilute with water. Run the piece of watercolor paper through the ink and spray solution. Dry with a heat tool.





When the paper is completely dry, squeeze some PaperArtsy Snowflake Fresco Finish paint onto a craft mat and dilute with water. Using a splatter brush, mix the paint and water and flick splatters onto the yellow paper.





I used the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Bigz die to create the rose. 





To finish the card, I add some Prima Metal Mini Stars, an ornate black key, and a Tim Holtz number brad that I colored with Prima Metallique Old Silver Wax. I add a Tim Holtz Quote Chip, the rose with some May Arts natural burlap twine behind it and attach the completed panel onto a 5" x 7" piece of Simon Says Stamp Black card stock.

I hope you enjoyed seeing the process I used to create my card for the Get In Shape challenge and that you join us for this fun challenge by adding your project to Simon Says Stamp's Monday Challenge Blog for your chance to win a $50 gift voucher to their amazing store.
