Today I’m doing watercoloring using Distress re-inkers for Tupelo Designs LLC. You can watercolor with any re-inkers you have to stretch your supplies. These re-inkers are so highly concentrated, a little goes a long way. I’ve embossed the image using the Ranger’s super fine embossing powder to help contain the colors in the embossed image. This makes watercoloring a lot easier. Tupelo Designs LLC is undergoing some changes for in order to create a brighter future. Shipping will resume in couple of days and your patience is greatly appreciated 🙂 You guys are awesome!! I hope you enjoyed this video and please Subscribe, Like and Comment 🙂 Thanks again
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.

Happy Cyber Monday, I hope you guys are getting some goodies since there’s so many great sales going on all over the Internet. I love Black Friday and Cyber Monday’s. I look forward to these more than Christmas, lol. Anyways, today I’m sharing a very quick card I made using the Paper Smooches Hooties Stamp set and the trees from the Stampin up White Christmas stamp set. I stamped out the 2 owls with Archival jet black ink on some watercolor paper because I’m going to be Watercoloring the owls with my watercolor Paints. I also stamped out one of the branches from the Hooties set and I freehand the tree trunk for the branch and ran it through my woodgrain embossing folder to make the tree more realistic. I sponged on some tim Holtz distress walnut stain all over the tree trunk and placed it on the left side of the card. I them took part of the tree from the Stampin Up White Christmas stamp set that I cut out and stamped them across the bottom portion of the card using the Walnut stain distress ink. I used both the first generation and the second to make it look like a forest in the background. I cut out 2 hills with brown card stock and also sponged it with walnut stain. I put the hills using foam adhesive and glue at the bottom to give more detention and placed the tree and the 2 owls on the tree trunk. I put some shiny hearts that I cut out using the Mama Elephant’s confetti die that I keep in a separate container with all different colors to finish of this card. I hope you like this card and I also have a Full Tutorial on how I made this card on my Youtube channel if you like to check that out!
