Tammy Tutterow Designs - Love You ♥

Hi Everyone! It's time for some creative inspiration with beautiful Tammy Tutterow Designs products. I created this sweet card using some of Tammy's new products. I love hearts and the shape of the Tammy's Prim Hearts are my favorite. I love the longer cut of this heart because it so romantic to me. I wanted to use soft pink colors to go with the shabby chic style. I hope you enjoy seeing how I put this card together and that somewhere along the way you're inspired to get inky and create fabulous.  Enjoy!

To begin, cut the largest size scalloped panel from the Lawn Fawn Fancy Scallop Rectangle Stackables die set out of Strathmore Bristol watercolor paper.

To prevent stamping on the scallop area around the frame of the panel, tape off the scallop edging and place it in the Misti. Place the Dear Ruby background stamp over the panel and close the door of the Misti to pick up the stamp. Ink the stamp with Versamark embossing ink and close the door of the Misti to stamp the image onto your panel. You can do this several times until you see that the image is completely stamped. 

Sprinkle Hero Arts white embossing powder over the stamped image, tap off the excess and heat the image with a heat tool. Allow the image to completely cool before moving on to the next step.

Now that the image is cool, spray panel with Spun Sugar Distress Spray Stain. Set this aside to completely dry.

To create the heart, color a piece of Strathmore Bristol watercolor paper with a mixture of water and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide. To do this, smudge the ink oxide pad on a craft mat several times in over a large area and then spray with water. Spray the watercolor paper with water as well and run the watercolor paper through the oxide mixture. Do this several times but make sure to dry each layer completely before adding another layer.

Cut the heart out of the watercolor paper using the largest Prim Heart from the die set. Next, stamp on the "I love you" sentiment from the Tiny Sentiments stamp set in Versamark embossing ink, sprinkle with Hero Arts white embossing powder and set with a heat tool. When the image is cool, lightly ink the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

Here is a close-up of the heart.

You can see how I create my shabby bows here. The flowers are from the Bitty Posies die set and cut from some of the left over watercolor paper I used to create the heart. The edges are inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a couple of flower stamens are added to the center of each one.

To complete the card, I adhere the heart to the top center of the scallop panel with 3d foam tape. I add the shabby bow at an angle and adhere three bitty posies to the center of the bow. I cut a 4-1/2" x 5-3/4" piece of Neenah Solar White card stock and distress the edges with the Prima Distressing Tool and adhere the scalloped panel in the center. I adhere some pearl dots on the four corners of the scallop panel and my card is done.

I hope you enjoyed seeing how I put together this pretty card and that you found some inspiration for your next project. Thanks so much for sticking through with me to the end. I'm truly grateful to you for spending your precious time with me.

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Study/School Related

Hi Everyone! I hope you had an awesome weekend and you're ready for a new challenge on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Our theme this week is Study/School Related. It's that time of year where the kiddos go back to school or college and Fall is just around the corner. I created a fun card showcasing one of Tim's Crazy Dogs. The poor little guy wasn't ready for summer fun to be over and it's back to the books for him. Below I show the steps I used to create the background for my card. Enjoy!

This is the last week for our guest designer, Simona Rebecchi from Ginny and the Sheep. It's been so fun to have her here with us on the challenge and see her amazing talent. Her creations are always so much fun. Stop by and check out her project for our last challenge of August.

Cut a 4-1/4" x 6-1/4 piece of Neenah Desert Storm card stock and stamp on the Tim Holtz Plaid background stamp in Simon Says Stamp Soft Navy ink using the Misti Tool. Set aside to dry.

Cut a 3-1/4" x 4-1/4" piece of Neenah Solar White 110 lb. card stock and with a mini ink blending tool apply Faded Jeans Distress Oxide.

Using the Tim Holtz Distress Sprayer, spritz on some water in large droplets combined with a light misted spray of water. Dab off excess water with a paper towel. Allow to completely dry.

Next, create a mixture of Fired Brick Oxide and water on a craft mat and dab card stock through the diluted oxide mixture. Dry each layer completely before dabbing the card stock through the mixture again.

Adhere the card stock with oxide ink onto the center of a 3-1/2" x 4-3/4" piece of navy blue card stock and adhere that panel onto the center of the plaid background.

Ink the edges of the plaid background with Simon Says Stamp Soft Navy ink using a mini ink blending tool.

Adhere that panel onto a 4-1/2' x 6-1/2" piece of navy card stock.

Stamp the pile of books from the Tim Holtz Schoolhouse Blueprint stamp set with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink onto Bristol watercolor paper.

Color image with Distress markers.

Cut image along the edges of the book bindings and pages and ink the edges with a black marker.

Stamp the surprised dog from the Tim Holtz Crazy Dog stamp set and color with Distress Markers. Cut out the dog with its coordinating die. I also stamped out another dog and cut the dimensional pieces that come in the die set to give the dog dimension. The eyes, eyebrows and collar are separate pieces colored and attached with 3d foam tape.

I cut out the sentiment, "Summer's Over!?!" from the Tim Holtz 3/4" Tall Alphanumeric Thinlits die set from Simon Says Stamp black card stock and adhered that to the top portion of the card at an angle.

To finish the card, I adhered the books to a black background created from card stock in the outline of the image. I adhered everything else and my card is done.

I hope you enjoyed seeing the process I used to create my card for the Study/School Related 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.
