I made a card and a tag using some really fun new stamps and dies.  These are my first Reverse Confetti stamps and dies and I had a blast using them to make these Design Team Projects.  
First I made a card using a Reverse Confetti Sketch For You to Try sketch ~~  link and sketch below. 
I colored up the elephant with Copic Markers ~ isn't he a cutie!!

My second project is a tag.  I loved the elephant image, but wanted to use it without the coffee cup so that I could put it on a tag to put in my new granddaughter's room. She'll be 3 weeks old today and we are so in love with her~!
I used a post it note to mask off the top of the elephants trunk where the cup was. I laid the die on top of it and drew in the line for the top of the trunk.  I then colored and die cut it out. I trimmed around the top of the trunk and waalaa!


I used this month's Reverse Confetti's Sketch For You To Try Sketch #40

Before I share my cards I wanted to share some news.  On September 1st my daughter had a baby.  She didn't know she was pregnant, so we all were surprised all the same time!  The baby is the sweetest little girl and is sooooo adorable.  We are over the moon in love with her.  I have been busy helping my daughter the last two weeks with sweet Baby Allison.  

For my first card I used an uber adorable My Favorite Things Pure Innocence stamp set called "Hula Hoop" ~ isn't she cute as can be?
I stamped and colored her body using Copic Markers, then paper pieced her clothes.  Paper Piecing is a lot of fun and really easy to do.

First I stamped the image on a white piece of Neenah card stock, then some MFT gingham paper and card stock.

I colored up the parts that wouldn't be paper pieced.. I did color her shoes I had forgotten to do them when I took the picture.


Here she is all colored and paper pieced.



Picture shoes the supplies I used ~ plus card stock/markers ~ to make this card.


I used this week's MOJO Monday Sketch Challenge:  MOJO465



My second card uses the fun Hero Arts Color Layering Fall Trees Bundle. The bundle includes the stamps and ink pads.  These are a lot of fun to use.

TupeloDesignsLLC DT Project " YOU, ME & THE SEA" card using Hero Arts Coloring Layering Seahorse stamps/dies VLVAUG2016

TupeloDesignsLLC orders are in the house!!  I did a quick video showing all the goodies that have showed up at my house this past week from TupeloDesignsLLC.   In the video I noticed how many times I said "cute" ~ haha!  


I received this awesome Hero Arts Color Layering Seahorse stamp, dies and ink pad bundle and just had to use it.  They are so much fun to use and super easy.   I used acrylic blocks for some of the stamps and others I used a stamping tool which made it soooooooooooooo easy!

The fun plaid papers in the background are from the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid paper pad.  

For the Starfish I used Pumpkie Pie and then Tangerine to ink and stamp these two. *ink pads are from the Hero Arts Jayne's Fall colors pad set that are in another bundle I'll be using soon.


I stamped the first layer of the Seahorse and then lined up the next layer. I inked and stamped it using the medium blue ink pad and then lined up the third layer, inked and stamped it in the darkest blue.

 After stamping I die cut all the images out. I didn't use the small seahorse that I had stamped and cut out.


After my card was all assembled I pulled out a product I have had a while, but hadn't used it.  I added some "bubbles" to my Seahorse using the Nuvo Glitter Drops "White Blizzard" .. oh my these are SO easy to use. I have a bunch and plan on using them more often. They are an awesome price point at only $2.99. 



Here are some of the products I used on my card ~ I also used some dies from MFT.


I used the Viva la Verve August Sketch #2 for my card:

**the strip going down I cut at 2" wide
**the strip going across I cut at 1 3/4" wide


SUPPLIES:

card stock:  Neenah White. Black, Light Blue
pattern paper: Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid paper pad
stamps:  Hero Arts Color Layering Seahorse Bundle 
ink:  Hero Arts Mariana's Pool ink pad set, Hero Arts Jayne's Fall Colors ink pad set (*ink pad sets are in the bundles), Lawn Fawn Black Licorice
accessories:  Scor-Buddy, Hero Arts Color Layering Seahorse dies, MFT Circle Stax, MFT Pierced Circle Stax, MFT Fishtail Flags Stax, Dots Embossing Folder, Nuvo Glitter Drops White BlizzardMulti Medium Matte and Foam Tape

TupeloDesignsLLC DT Project "NO MATTER HOW YOU SLICE IT..." card using Lawn Fawn stamps & dies

 I want to apologize up front..  I made this card about a week and a half ago... the night before leaving on a long 4 day journey halfway across the country.  I took pictures while making the card and afterwards and emailed them to myself like I always do.  I then wrote down all the things I used on the card and had it laying on the bar beside the packet of all my son's college paper to take with me..  that paper did not end up going on the trip with me and my husband is away from home TDY so I cannot ask him to tell me the numbers of the Copic Markers. I reverted to an old post for some numbers.   I fly home on Saturday so I can edit anything if necessary..   my "soon to be college mom to my youngest child" wasn't working on all cylinders!   He was moved in and I am now in TN visiting my parents ~ last night I received a call saying the vehicle we left with him lost all power. He called the insurance which dispatched a tow truck and it was towed to a repair shop near campus. We think it's the alternator.. that seems to be going around these days.   hugs to all that have emailed me and asked about my son and me!

Lawn Fawn makes stamps that are so much fun to color  ~ no matter what color medium you are using.   I used Lawn Fawn's Pizza My Heart stamps and dies as well as the Lawn Fawn Gingham Backdrops for the bottom section on the card ~ it's pretty neat to make your own pattern paper using background stamps. I thought the pattern was perfect for a Pizza themed card.  My son LOVES pizza and so does his room mate. I'll be sending this card off to him.

I stamped all my images onto some Neenah White Card stock, then colored them in using Copic Markers.
On the pizza slices and pizzas ~ I colored the crust using E40, E43 and E44.  Going E40, then a little line of  E43 and then E44.. blending them backwards from there.  For the Pepperoni I colored them in with E08 and then a little curve of E19.  For the cheese I colored it all in E30, circled the pepperoni with E31, blended it out with E30 and then dotted around the cheese with E31.






coloring the pizza boxes I used C3, C4, C6 and C8 ~~~  I will doublecheck on that when I get home. I think I used three. I colored in the lightest, then from the sides in and the middle out I went from color to color and then worked my way out..  one one pizza box I put down too much color and it bled out a little.  I am missing pictures from the coloring of the pizza boxes and can add them when I return to WA


 For the pizza crusts..  I colored E40, then E43 and added some E44 and blended back.  You could dot some of the E43 or E44 on the crusts as well. I didn't try it this time, but will next time.





The pizza cutter uses R46 and R89, along with C3, C4, and C6.

After coloring everything I lined up the die and used some post it tape to keep them in place while I ran it through my machine.  I love the way they are so easy to line up and die cut so nicely.

Thanks for stopping by ~ when I return home I will have some packages from TupeloDesignsLLC waiting for me ~ be sure to stop in next week to see what new goodies arrived!


SUPPLIES:

card stock: Neenah White. Black, Kraft and Red
stamps: Lawn Fawn Pizza My Heart, Lawn Fawn Gingham Backdrops
ink:  Versafine black, Memento Black, Asst. Copic Markers:
accessories:  Scor-Buddy, Lawn Fawn Pizza My Heart dies, Brick Embossing Folder and Foam Tape

TupeloDesignsLLC DT Project "YOU'RE A SUPER KID!" card using Tim Holtz Crazy Dogs stamp



Happy Thursday!   I have a Design Team Project for TupeloDesignsLLC for you today. 

I wanted to share some tidbits about TupeloDesignsLLC that you might not know ... 

TupeloDesignsLLC offers an awesome "Loyalty Rewards Program". You will receive 500 points ($5.00) just for signing up, then you will continue to receive 2 pts for every $1 you spend. The points add up quickly and can be redeemed for FREE product ~ they also offer FREE SHIPPING with no minimum purchase requirement and without a required Discount Code! That is the biggest perk for me because I LOVE Free shipping!!   There is also discounted or even Free shipping on International shipments as well. Be sure to check out the TupeloDesignsLLC site for more information. Also..  recently added to the store is some amazing products from Hunkdory, Cottagecutz along with new items from Stampendous and Tim Holtz.  

Now to my card ~ all products used are linked below along with the sketch I used.

OH MY GOSH!!  Have you seen the Tim Holtz Crazy Dogs??   they are so stinkin' cute!   When I first looked at the dog image I used on my card, I thought his tongue was a big "heart" ~ haha!  

I hadn't planned on cutting the image out, but I had two Copic Markers that left some tiny drops of ink near the dog.... so I cut it out after trying to use the Blender to get rid of them, that didn't work so well.   I cut it out using my CutterBee scissors (LOVE them!) and then put foam tape on the back of him to raise this cutie up.



Last week I was scrolling through a stamp catalog. I decided to scribble down some of the sketches/layouts that were used on some of the cards.  The one below is one that I had scribbled on a sheet of paper. I flipped it for my card.     for the background and rectangle across the card I used one 6 x 6 piece of pattern paper. I cut the background layer 4" x 5 1/4" and took the 2" strip that was left and cut it down to 3 7/8".  Super easy sketch to make a bunch of cards with.



SUPPLIES;

card stock:  Neenah White. Black
pattern paper: from my stash
stamps:  Tim Holtz Crazy Dogs
ink:  Memento Black, Versafine Black, Copic Markers:  YR07, YR68 R20, R22, R24, B0000, Y17, E31, E33, E34, E37
accessories:  Scor-Buddy, MFT Circle Stax, MFT Pinking Circle Stax, Hole Punch, Silver Brads, Cutterbee Scissors and Foam Tape
