So grateful for you for TupeloDesignsLLC

Thursday, November 23, 2017

I want to wish all my friends celebrating a very  happy Thanksgiving. I hope you and your loved ones have a wonderful day.

My card today is for TupeloDesignsLLC and it features the gorgeous With Gratitude stamp set from Altenew.  I started by stamping the outline images onto my white linen card base. I then stamped the insides of the leaves. I love how each leaf has two sets for the inside so you can get a two tone effect.

After my leaves were done, I stamped the sentiment which is from the same stamp set. I then decided to add a bit of gold Gilding Flakes. I used some from Tonic Studios but there are many options available here.  I started by laying down a strip of 1/4 inch Scor Tape.  I then sprinkled the flakes over top the exposed adhesive and then used a brush to wipe away any extra flakes. These flakes do like to spread but a Swiffer cloth will keep your desk nice and tidy.

Thanks for visiting. Crafty hugs!






Merry Christmas for Whimsy Stamps

Wednesday, November 22, 2017

Hi friends. I'm back today with a Christmas card using some fun products from Whimsy Stamps

Before I get to the card I do want to let you know that Whimsy Stamps is having a huge sale for Black Friday. All products will be 25% off and you can start shopping later today at 6 pm EST. 

Now back to my card - I started by die cutting some of the dies from the Christmas Branches die collection with the DIY Stencil Sheets. I love that you can basically create any stencil you want using your existing dies.

After my stencils were cut, I blended on some distress inks in red and greens onto my background panel. I then heat embossed the sentiment which is from the Scripty Occasions stamp set with gold sparkle embossing powder. I die cut the top and bottom of this strip with one of the dies from the Hand Stitched Borders die collection. I added it over some sparkly gold card stock and the card is done.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Crafty hugs!

DT Project for TupeloDesignsLLC

Tuesday, November 21, 2017

Hi friends. I'm using the Autumn Leaves stamp set on today's card for TupeloDesignsLLC. There are also coordinating dies for the set but I didn't use those on today's card.

I started out by stamping the outline images with some Gold Delicata ink on the background. I then took the inside images and stamped them using some inks in fall colors.

I stamped the sentiment and then added some black paint splatters all over the background. I die cut the panel and then matted it on some gold foil card stock to pull in some additional gold color.

Thanks so much for your visit. I hope you are having a wonderful day!

DT Project for TupeloDesignsLLC with Hero Arts

Thursday, November 16, 2017

Hi friends. I'm so glad you joined me today. I have a fun floral card using the beautiful Color Layering Hydrangea stamp set from Hero Arts for TupeloDesignsLLC. 

Hero Arts has so many wonderful color layering stamp sets. Click here to see all of the ones that TupeloDesignsLLC carries.

I started by stamping the base image with Fresh Lavender ink directly onto a piece of light grey card stock. I then stamped the detail layer with Sugarplum ink. I stamped the images again onto a separate piece of card stock and then fussy cut around the image. I stamped the leaves and then stamped the gorgeous sentiment which is also from the same stamp set. Some Nuvo Drops finish off this card.



Christmas Greetings x 3 for Whimsy Stamps

Wednesday, November 15, 2017

Hi friends. I have three cards to share with you today, all using the super fun Abstract Christmas stamp set from Whimsy Stamps that was released earlier this year.

For my first card, I created my background using some various colors of Distress Inks that I smooshed into some water color card stock.  I then stamped and heat embossed the Christmas tree and the sentiment with some silver embossing powder.



For my second card, I did the same thing except this time with some various blue inks with some gold embossing powder. I also rubbed my Versamark ink pad down the edge of a white piece of card stock and then coated it with the same gold embossing powder. 


For my last card, I thought it would be fun to heat emboss the image onto some black card stock. I then took some metallic water colors and added just a touch to some of the circles in the tree. I also added heat embossing to the edges of my panel like I did in the card above.


I hope you've enjoyed these cards today. Thanks for dropping by. Crafty hugs!

Happiest of Birthdays Shaker Card for TupeloDesignsLLC

Tuesday, November 14, 2017

Hi friends. I'm back today with another card featuring fun products available at TupeloDesignsLLC.

I am using the super fun Waves Foam Front Card Kit from Queen & Co. on today's card. The kit comes all the pieces you need to make a quick and easy shaker card.

I started by applying various colors of Distress inks onto the front panel in rainbow order. The panel has a bit of a slick surface to it so you get a slightly different look than if you were to just use regular card stock.

I used Festive Berries, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet.

I then stamped the sentiment which is from MFT's More Essential Sentiments stamp set.  I added some clear sequins into each of the wave portions and the card is done. The card kit makes putting together the shaker portion a breeze.
