Tombow Recycled Colored Pencil share




Aloha Guys!

Today I wanted to quickly share these New Tombow Recycled color pencils that Tupelo Designs LLC carries.  They now carry many brands of colored pencils such as Spectrum Noir, Prismacolor Premier, Julie Netting, Tombow Recycled color pencil…etc.  I’ve shared the other color pencils in many of my other videos but since these are New and I’ve never shared them, I’d thought I’d quickly share them today.  More options for you to choose from.  I used these New Stampendous Jumbo stamp set to demonstrate how these colors blend and to my surprise, I was extremely impressed.  I’ve had these pencils in my stash but I’ve never used them so I’m actually trying them out with you guys for the first time.  They carry 2 different sets, a 12 set and these 24 set.  For these specific line of pencils, 24 is the full set.  What makes these pencils different than other pencils is that it’s made out of Recycled Re-porposed trees, so very environmental.  These are wax-based pencils made with Cedar wood and it’s a little denser than the soft cored Prismacolor premier pencils but they actually feel just as buttery as the Prismacolor pencils.  They are Highly pigmented and an Artist quality but the price point on these pencils are pretty awesome!

I’m really not doing a full coloring tutorial but enough for you to see how easily they blend.  Both Prismacolor pencils and the Spectrum Noir pencils are very high quality pencils but this is just another option you have.  I really loved the consistency of these pencils and they don’t give a wax-bloom like some of the other wax based pencils.  I hope you found this video helpful and hope you enjoy watching how these work.

I really appreciate all your wonderful support and if you have questions regarding a product or would like to see a Demo, please leave me a comment and I’ll try my best to get to them as soon as I can.  Thank you so much for stopping by and I’ll see you back soon.  Thanks again 🙂

CAS Card Sets using Wplus9-Tupelo Designs LLC




Aloha Guys!

Today I’m making some cards for Tupelo Designs LLC.  With the Holiday’s approaching, I’ll be making many sets of Cards so that I can give them as gifts.  You’ll be seeing many more of these, that’s for sure.  I decide to make a set of 4 and I made my own background paper using the Penny Black’s Blips background stamp with Rangers Dye inks.  Rangers Dye inks are very bright and I love the colors they offer.  I thought it would be fun to make different color backgrounds with the same stamped image.  When you are mass producing cards, it’s easier to do it in assembly style.  I first prepared all the card stocks that I’ll be using: 4 card bases (110lb Neenah), 4 black mats, 4 background paper, etc….

I’m using the Wplus9 stamp set, Wishing you and I chose out the 2 bunnies that has the back toward us. I stamped out 4 of them in a 2 1/2″ circle and colored them using my Copic Markers.  This is going to be very clean and simple.  It’s best to keep it that way, so that you can create these cards pretty fast.  I then assembled everything together.  I did not put a sentiment to these cards, because I like to add them later, depending on who I’m giving these too.  You can also stamp multiple sentiments on a separate piece and give them together.  Then they can choose which sentiment they want to use, and just attach it to the card.  I hope you like this clean and simple card set and I thank you guys so much for stopping by.  Be sure to subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas.  All the supplies I used will be located below, if you’re interested in any of the supplies I used today.  Thanks again and I’ll catch you guys next time.

Wplus9 Unforgetable Card-Tupelo Designs LLC




Aloha Guys!

Today I’m making a card for Tupelo Designs LLC and I’m using the Wplus9 Unforgetable stamp set.  These elephants are super cute and I was very excited to use it.  I am not doing any coloring  today but instead, I stamped one of the elephant out on a design paper and fussy cut it out.  I also used some glitter design paper from my stash and cut 2 cloud border using the Mama elephant border trio die.  If I had the Lawn Fawn’s new Fluffy cloud border die, that would of been perfect for it as well.  I wanted the elephant to look like he was floating in the cloud because of the sentiment I chose out from the stamp set.  I hope you can watch the video up above for a step by step on how I made this card.  I hope you guys like this and please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas.  Thanks so much

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




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 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.

Gerda Steiner Designs Nerdy Kitten with Prismacolor Pencils



Aloha Guys!

Today I’m making a card for Gerda Steiner Designs and I’m using this super adorable digital image called Nerdy Kitten.  Super cute, I just love his glasses and his sweet face.  I printed him out on Neenah Solar White 80lb paper and cut it using the Simon Says Stamp In stitches circle die.  I’m coloring this image with my Prismacolor pencils, which I haven’t used in a while.  I colored the image with the pencils and blended it using Gamsol. If you didn’t know, Gamsol is a solvent that will break down the colors to smooth it out.  I have a full tutorial up above on how I made this card.  I hope you enjoyed this card and I thank you very much for stopping by, I always appreciate it.  All the supplies I used will be linked below if you’re interested.  Thanks again 🙂
