CAS Card Using Bird Crazy and Copic Markers-Tupelo Designs LLC

IMG_8696

IMG_8698

IMG_8697

Aloha Guys!

Today I’m making a very Clean and Simple DT Card for Tupelo Designs LLC using this Bird Crazy stamp set and some Copic Markers.  I’m Super excited to share with you guys that Tupelo Designs LLC is now carrying Copic markers!! Yay!!  I decided to make this card really simple because I wanted to go over some things regarding Copic Markers.  You can get a full step by step on how I made this card by watching the video link up above.

I wanted to go over some general information regarding these markers that might be handy to know.  First off, you can keep track of your copic markers by downloading a Free Color chart from copicmarker.com and I’ll leave a link below or you can even purchase this Hex Chart from Sandy Allnock’s website for several dollars, which is a handy tool as well.  She designed this chart to help us have an easier time finding the right color combinations that go well together and I think this chart is very helpful.  The copic markers have a different numbering system that you should know in order to choose the right combinations.  You can also get more detail information in this on the copic website as well.

These markers are alcohol base markers and with alcohol based markers, it’s very important to use the right ink that’s compatible with alcohol markers.  The most popular ink pad to use with these are Momento Tuxedo black ink or My Favorite Things Hybrid Licorice Black ink.  My personal favorite is the My favorite things Hybrid ink but it’s personal preference.  Choosing the right paper also makes a huge difference on how they blend.  It’s best to use a specialty card stock such as Neenah Solar White or  Spectrum Noir card stock just to name a few.  These card stocks have a slick surface, which will help with the markers to sit on top of the paper longer for a better blend.

For todays card, I decided to use this Bird Crazy stamp set from stampers anonymous.  I think these birds have the funniest expressions and each bird has their own personality which I love.  I stamped it out using My favorite things black licorice hybrid ink on Neenah solar white card stock and chose out several colors to color the birds.  I made this bird very colorful since this was a very simple card.  I found this very funny sentiment to go along with these birds from the Dylusions stamp set from my stash.  To see a full step by step on how I made this card, please watch the video up above or head on over to my youtube channel.  For all the supplies I used on this card will be in the description below. I thank you guys so much for stopping by and please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas.  I’m super excited that Tupelo Designs LLC is carrying copic markers and I’ll be sharing more products using these markers in the future.  Thank you so much and I hope to see you back next time.

Altenew Vintage Roses Tripple Layered Card

Vintage rose 1

Vintage rose 2

Vintage rose 3

Aloha Guy!

Today I’m sharing with you guys this card I made for Tupelo Designs LLC using Alte New Vintage Roses.  This is also a layering stamp set that has multiple layers to create this stunning painterly look.  This is an Awesome stamp set to have because it does all the work for you, all you need to do is stamp and there is your masterpiece.  This stamp set was designed really well for stampers made by stampers, so they knew exactly how to create this stunning effect.

Today’s Card is basically layering and Stampining.  I have 3 pieces of white card stock measuring

Large- 3 7/8×5 1/8

Medium 4 1/2×3 1/4

Small 2 5/8×3 5/8

I have 3 pieces of Black card stock

Lage 4x 5 1/4

Medium 4 5/8 x3 3/8

Small 2 3/4×3 3/4

With the 3 White pieces, line it up in the center, making sure that all sides are even.  Then go ahead and stamp out your flowers and the leaves with all the layers.  Press firmly since you’re stamping on 3 card stocks at once.  You’ll need to make a mask for the flowers that will be over lapping as well as for the leaves. After all the stamping is done, I also used the same sentiment from the same set and stamped it out using Versafine Onyx Black pigment ink and embossed it with Clear embossing powder.  I thought the top of the card panel looked empty so I also pulled out the Painted Butterflies set and stamped a small butterfly at the top left corner above the sentiment.

Attach the white card stock the coordinating black card stock leaving about 1/16th of a border all around each piece.  My card base today is Neenah 110lb. Card stock which I cut it as a A2 size card panel.  I attached all the components together, using foam adhesive for the top 2 layers.  I also added some pearls and clear wink of stella for the last finishing touches.  I do have a full Tutorial on my youtube channel if you’d like to check that out.  I hope you enjoyed this card and please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas.  All the supplies I used will be listed below for your convenience. Thank you so much for stopping by and Much Mahalo
