Aloha Guys!

Today I have a super easy watercolor technique for you from Tupelo Designs LLC.  I feel like I haven’t used these Ganzai Tambi watercolor paint set so I’d thought I would use this for my watercoloring today.  I’m also using this Altenew stamp set and I’ve used the Ranger’s liquid platinum embossing powders to emboss the florals.  This watercoloring is super easy and fast.  You’ll get this beautiful results without doing much to it.

These watercolor paints are very highly pigmented watercolors with intense colors and a little goes a long way.  It’s a good paint set to have in your stash and Tupelo Designs LLC has them in stock if you want to grab yourself one.

Thank you for watching 🙂

Aloha Guys!

Today I wanted to share some tips on how to use the WRMK Next level embossing folders.  I was making some card sets for gifts and I really like the impressions these folders gave but unlike ordinary embossing folders, I had to use different a different sandwich to run it though.  I’m using these gorgeous Mica metallic card stocks from Papertemtress today.  The combination between these Card stocks and the embossing folder, it came out beautiful.  I just added sentiments from the Paper smooches, Bold buzz work and the cards were finished.  Very simple and elegant card.  I’ve used 2 set of the embossing folder, Geometric and Gemstone.  I hope you found this video helpful and I’ve also attached a tag I’ve made using Brusho and another Paper smooches stamp.  If you’d like to see a tutorial on this, please leave me a comment.  Thanks again 🙂

Aloha Guys!

Today I wanted to share another way to make a flat shaker card, just like how people are using the Fuse tool.  If you don’t have a Fuse tool, you can try this method.  I decided to use a Ziplock bag instead of the fuse.  It’s still Flat, which I like very much.  It’s easy to mail, when the card is flat.  That’s the reason why I like making flat shakers.  I mail out a lot of Holiday cards, so this is simple enough to mass produce if you wanted to, which I plan to.  I’m using the Gerda Steiner Designs, Peeking Friends stamp set.  This stamp set is perfect, for shaker cards or tucking them behind an object, behind a window…There’s so many possibilities with this stamp set.  I know i’ll be using this set a lot this holiday season.  All the card stocks I used on this card, can be four at PaperTempress and I’ll leave the links below for all the supplies I used on this card.  I hope you like this card and it gave you some ideas on making your own, easy shaker cards.  I thank you guys so much for stopping by and please like, comment and subscribe.  Thanks again!

Please Follow me on my Social Medias, I post many projects and ideas there as well.
