Today I’m making a card for Tupelo Designs LLC and I’ll be using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. These markers are Amazing!! I have numerous number of watercolor mediums, but these markers are by far my favorite! You can use them with water or without. That’s what makes these markers very unique. It also has a real brush, rather than the felt tips we’re use to, for watercolor markers.
The stamp set that I’ll be using today is Newton’s Nook Designs Stamp set. This stamp set is very versatile, for all year round. It has a wagon, and it has different things you can put in the wagon. I think that’s super fun. I wanted to make a rainbow of wagon, stacked on top of each other, with newton on the top of the wagon, hiding behind the pumpkins. I could only fit 5 wagons on this card, but you can easily make a whole card, just with the wagons. I colored them with different colors using the Zig clean color markers and I didn’t use any water to blend. I just used the markers itself, to do the blending. I chose out a light and a dark from each color family, to do the blending. These markers blend beautifully and they are very easy to use. They are very highly pigmented to give you a super bright color, or you can add water to make the colors softer. I’ll be showing both techniques today. I colored all the images, without the water but I used water on the clouds, to give a softer look. Please check out the video and you can see for yourself, how fun and easy these markers are to use.
Just like I mentioned in the video, you don’t need to have a ton of color You can easily control the intensity of the color by using it with or without the water. Tupelo Designs LLC has several different packs available but they also sell the singles as well. What’s great about these markers is that, you can buy them individually. Which means, you can start with a smaller set if you like, and build your collection over time. I hope you enjoy this card and please subscribe and follow if you want to see more inspirations and ideas. All the supplies I used will be located below, for your convenience. Thanks again!

I’m not going to write to much today so go ahead and watch the video for a step by step of this card.

Today I’m making a card for Tupelo Designs LLC and I’ll be doing some simple watercoloring using the Peerless Watercolors. The stamp set that I used are these Stampendous Jumbo Hummingbird stamp set. I personally love their Jumbo stamp line because they are so fun to color. They are very large so you can experiment with all types of mediums, and have fun. Today I decided to emboss these birds using the Wow white pearl powder, which will give us this soft watercolor look. I used the Peerless watercolors today, and if you haven’t tried these watercolors, I recommend them very much. They come in paper form and it has a highly pigmented colors on them so they are very easy to work with. This is one of my favorite watercolor set. The colors are so rich and vibrant, they are absolutely gorgeous. If you have a hard time staying in the lines when you watercolor, try embossing the stamp first. This will make the embossed lines raise up, which will help you stay in the lines. I just love how these birds turned out, and I love the colorful look, these birds have. I hope you enjoyed this card and please check out the video for step by step instructions. I thank you guys so much for stopping by and all the supplies I used will be located below if you want to check that out. Please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas. Thanks again.
Today I’m making a card for Tupelo Designs LLC and I’ll be doing some Masking techniques using different products. The stamp set I’ll be using is this super adorable ghosts from Lawn Fawn, Booyah set and the starry backdrop set. First I stamped out the ghosts in MFT’s Black hybrid licorice ink and colored them using my Copic markers. I then applied the Triple Thick brush on gloss on the ghosts using a paint brush. I loved the fact that it covered the area super quickly. I let it dry completely, so that it’ll resist any inking or embossing I’ll be doing on top. I needed my masking paper to mask the ghosts so I can create a moon behind the ghosts. I could not find my Inkadinkado masking paper that I normally use for all my masking anywhere. I remembered that I saw someone using contact paper, Shelf liner as a masking paper so I decided to try it out with some left over shelf liner I had. To my surprise, it worked beautifully. I was super happy that it worked. I cut out a circle and placed it over the ghost and stamped out the starry backdrop using versamark, embossed it using White embossing powder. I wanted to create a night sky, so I covered the whole area using Chipped sapphire and black soot. After making my night sky, I peeled off the shelf liner to reveal the circle, which will be my moon. I used Fossilized amber distress ink to color in my moon. The Ghosts will resist the ink because it has been covered with the Triple thick, which is very similar to glossy accents. I stamped out the sentiment on a black card stock with the same white embossing powder and attached it to the bottom of the night sky. I hope you like this card and found this video helpful for different masking techniques. I thank you guys so much for stopping by and please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas. Thanks again. Please visit the store for all the supplies I used on this card.
Today I’m doing some paper piecing using the Gerda Steiner Designs Monster Fun stamp set. I just adore these monsters, so I had to use them again. Instead of coloring them, I’ll be doing some paper piecing. I’m sure we all have tons of scraps left over from projects so this a perfect way to use up some of those scraps of paper. I stamped out multiple images on multiple pattern paper and fussy cut all of them out. I chose 3 monsters for my card and attached them to circles, also backed with some scraps of paper. I still have many monsters left over from this card which I can use on another project. I have a full tutorial for this card above if you are interested.

Today I’m making a DT card for Tupelo Designs LLC. I’ll be using the new Altenew stamp set called Wild Hibiscus and I’ll be doing some Ink Smooshing using distress inks. I’ve been seeing many people do this smooching technique and I wanted to try it out myself. I also used the Ranger Liquid platinum embossing powder, I think it gives a real elegant look. I chose out 3 distress inks, Mustard seed, Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves and used a acetate to do the smooching. I really like this technique and I’m sure I’ll be doing this more often. I hope you guys enjoyed this and please watch the video for a full step by step. I thank you guys so much for stopping by and please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas.

Today I’m making a DT card for Tupelo Designs LLC. I’ll be doing some stamping using the Distress markers to get a Watercolor effect using Wplus9 Fresh Cut Floral stamp set.

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 🙂
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

You can use this ink for alcohol markers and watercolor so it’s a great ink pad to have.
