Hi friends. There's a fun new challenge at Casual Fridays this time - Gratitude with Attitude.  Click here to enter your project and for your chance to win up to a $50 gift certificate provided by Michele at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.

I started by doing some ink smooshing onto some water color card stock with some light colors of Distress inks. After this was all dry, I stamped the various sentiments from the Thanks stamp set. I love the fun font and sentiments included in this set.

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.




6 cards with the Kind Soul set for TupeloDesignsLLC

Thursday, November 9, 2017

Welcome friends. I have 6 cards to share with you today - all using the beautiful Kind Soul stamp set from WPlus9 for TupeloDesignsLLC

The store has so many great products and companies. And don't forget the FREE shipping in the US with no minimum purchase.

For all 6 cards, I used my Stamping Platform from Tim Holtz to do all the stamping. The image and the sentiment are in the same position for each of the 6 cards.

For my first card, I heat embossed the image with gold embossing powder. I then added lots of paint over it using the Kuretake Gansai Tambi paints. I dragged my Versamark pad along both edges of my card stock and then coated them with the same gold embossing powder. I then added my card panel with some foam tape. Some sequins filled with silver Stickles finish off the card.

For my second card, I used white embossing powder and then added various colors of Distress inks with my Mini Ink Blending Tool.


For my 3rd card, I added paints from the same paint set I used above. It's a bit messy but I still really like it.



For my 4th card, I stamped the image in black over top of some fun patterned paper.


For my 5th card, I did some ink smooshing onto some Tim Holtz water color card stock using some Distress inks. I then stamped the image with black ink. Some Nuvo drops finish off the card.


My last card was done the same as the one above except this time I used different ink colors for the smooshing.

If you've made it this far, thanks so much for sticking with me to the end. I hope you've enjoyed these cards today, all featuring the Kind Soul stamp set from WPlus9. 

Thanks for dropping by today. Crafty hugs!






Geometric Snowflake for Whimsy Stamps

Wednesday, November 8, 2017

Hi friends. Thanks for stopping by today. I have a fun card to share with you today for Whimsy Stamps.  I started out by making my background using some Color Burst powders. I can't seem to stop using these as I love what you can do with them.

After my background was complete, I took the Geometric Snowflake from Whimsy Stamps and die cut it from the panel. The die cuts the outline and all of the individual star pieces on the inside. I die cut the die again, this time with just plain white card stock for the outline.

I added all the pieces back in. To do this easily, I adhered lots of adhesive to my card panel and just fit everything back in.  Luckily, the inner portions of my snowflake die stayed together for the most part so it was really quick and easy to fit all back together.

I finished off the card with a simple sentiment and some black and white twine.

Thanks for your visit. Crafty hugs!
