Gelatos Background and Quick Copic Coloring Tupelo Deisgns LLC




Aloha Guys!

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 🙂

Clean and Simple Card Using Ombre Inks Tupelo Designs LLC




Aloha Guys!

Today I’m making a DT card for Tupelo Designs LLC and I’ll be using one of the New MFT stamps set I received in my DT Package.  I’ll also be using some Hero Arts Ombre inks for my flowers and if you have not played with these inks, you should definitely try, they are super fun.  The Ombre inks have 3 different shades that goes from light to dark all in one pad so as you can see on my video and from the pictures above, you can create a really fast card to create some unique looks.  I decided to use the Pink to red for my flowers, which gave the flowers some lighter shades as well as the dark all in just one stamping, which I thought was way cool.  I used the outlined image using the Hero Arts Black dye inks to give a distinct line for these flowers but you certainly can use a brighter red to give it more of a muted look.  I did the same for the leaves as well using the Mint to green ink pad.  You can see my Full process on how I made this card on the video up above.  I hope you like this card and video and please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas.  I’ll leave all the supplies I used in this card in the information below.  I thank you guys so much for stopping by and I’ll see you guys next time.  Mahalo 🙂

Paper Smooches January Designer Search and Sparks Challenge



Aloha Guys!
Today I made a card for Paper Smooches January Designer Search and the Sparks Challenge. I used Freezy Fellas stamp set and I also cut using MFT Die namics square grid cover up for my window panel for my card. I also cut snow banks out of Lawn Fawns Stitched hillside border die in various sizes.  I cut a Designer Series paper from Stampin Up and a Vellum the same side as the square grid panel.  I colored 3 snow mans using Copic Markers.  I used the Tim Holtz tumble glass distress ink pad to give the snow banks some color.  I first attached the snow banks to the Window panel to make things a little easier for me.  I put the larger snow man out of the 3 in front of the window and put the other 2 behind the window to make it look like they are peeking in.  After that I attached the Vellem to the back of this window with the snow banks.  I then used a pencil to trace where the largest snow banks are going to be and put Foam adhesive all around the window and put foam adhesive along the top of the largest snowbank.  This panel with be the front portion of my Semi-Shaker card.  I say Semi because I used the washi tape to seal up all 4 sides of the window.  I wanted to use vellum instead of the acetate because I wanted more of a muted background.  I put some different sizes of sequins on the design paper and placed the window panel down and taped all 4 sides with the wash tape.  I put the large snowman in front of the card using some foam adhesive and I stamped out the sentiment No Peeking with Stampin Up stamp with 2 different colors and punch it out using the Sampin Up’s Large scalloped die.  I put foam adhesive on the sentiment and placed it on the top right hand corner.  I have a Full tutorial on how I made this card on my Youtube Channel which I’ll be posting shortly if you’d  like to check that out.  I want to thank you guys for visiting and please subscribe for more inspirations and ideas. Much Mahalos
