Today I’m making a Clean and Simple card using this stamp set, Peekin Pumpkin Kitten along with the Happy Fall set. I won’t be showing the coloring portion of this pumpkin but I’ll definitely show it, next time I use this stamp set for Halloween. I just love the versatility of Gerda’s stamp sets. I will be creating my own background paper just by using some small stamps from the Happy Fall set. I hope you like this card and please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas.

Today I’m making a DT card for Tupelo Designs LLC. The stamp set I’ll be using is MFT’s I Knead You stamp set, which consists of kittens/cat images and accessories to go along with it. This stamp set is really good because you get a a lot of stamps for your money, which is a plus. I’m also using some Gold and Silver Gelatos to make my own shimmery background. I purchased the Metallic 15 piece set from them not too while back and since then I’ve only used them once so I decided to use them to make my background. I already had some collections which I purchased long ago so these gelatos last very long and they have released different sets, which will make collecting easier. I dry embossed a card stock using one of the embossing folders I had. I then applied the gelatos on the embossed paper, which will only get color on the embossed/raised area, but I wanted more of a blended look, I blended it out using some semi-dried baby wipe. These gelatos are water soluable so you can easily watercolor using them.
I cut out a circle, using the MFT’s stitched circle die and stamped out my kitty of my choice onto this Neenah solar white card stock. I then did some simple Copic coloring and assembled the card together. For a full step by step, please check out the video which is located up above. I hope you like this card and please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas. Thanks so much 🙂
Happy Monday, and it’s time for a DT Card for Tupelo Designs LLC. Stamps set I’ll be using is the Wplus9 Flora Fauna 1 along with my Copic markers. I’ve mentioned before that Tupelo Designs LC is now carrying Copic markers so I’m super excited!! I went ahead and stamped out this dogwood flower onto my Neenah Solar White using My favorite things Hybrid licorice black ink. You can use this ink for alcohol markers and watercolor so it’s a great ink pad to have. Wplus9 is one of the New collections they are carrying but they are constantly adding more brands all the time.
I made this card simple but I think, the flower really pops and I really like that. I have a full tutorial up above if you want to see the whole process. I thank you guys so much for stopping by and please subscribe an follow for more inspirations and ideas. Thanks again. Mahalo 🙂
Copic colors I used: RV09, RV04, RV23, R32, G28,G07, YG45, Y38, Y17
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.

Today I’m making a DT card for Tupelo Designs LLC using the Hibiscus stamp set from Designs by Ryn. I’ll be using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and I’ll quickly go over some tips on using your bare rubber stamps without mounting it on Cling foam. If you are interested in mounting your stamps on the cling foam, I’ll leave a link below where Jane shows the entire process.
These stamps Designs by Ryn are such a high quality red rubber stamps. They are very deeply etched and detailed, so you won’t have any issues with getting a good crisp image. I personally like to use a Rock-A-Block when I’m stamping bare rubber stamps. That’s just my preference and you can play around with different types of block. There’s a slight learning curve to it but once you get use to them, they are great.
I’ll be coloring most of my flowers off camera but I will share several petals and go over some things. These flowers took over and hour to color, and I don’t think you want to watch me color for an hour. You can go ahead and check out the video above for the whole process as well as some tips for using your bare rubber stamps.
I’m trying out couple different tools that I’ve never used before. I show it very briefly since the video was fast forwarded 4x. One is the Blending tool that Mike, owner of Tupelo Designs LLC actually makes, and the other being the Teflon Bone Folder. I’ll share more footage of using this tool in another video but I just gotta say, they are fantastic tools. The blending tool is perfectly shaped so I can grab it very easily and makes blending much easier. I have wrist problems so this tool is perfect for my hands. The other tool that i’m fascinated by is the Teflon Bone folder. I’ve seen others use it, and it was highly recommended by tons of people and now I know the reason why. They give a really crisp scor and when you burnish the fold, there is no shinny residue. It also feels good in my hands as well. I’m super excited about these New tools for me, I’ll share more about it later on. I hope you like this card and tips I gave was useful. Please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas. Thank you so much for stopping by and I’ll see you guys next time.

Today I’m making a card for Gerda Steiner Designs using the Heavy friends stamp set. I’ve used this set quite often because I just adore these critters but I never used the Rhinasorous yet so I’ll be using him today for my card. I cut out 5 frames using the MFT’s rectangle die and glued them all together to create a frame for my focal image. I then cut another, same size as the frame to create a scenery for my focal image. I used the Obsessions Impressions Clouds background stamp along with Tumble glass distress ink to create my scene. Then I stamped out the Rhinasorous in Momento Tuxedo black ink and colored him using my Copic markers. I put everything together to create this card. For a complete process of this card, please watch the video above. I’ll leave all the supplies I used for today’s card in the description below. I hope you enjoyed this card and please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas, Thank you so much visiting and have a wonderful day 😀
