Happy Thursday Everyone!! Sadly, this will be my last Guest Designer Post for Tupelo Designs LLC. (using that links earns me points and you 10% off your first order.) I have had such a fun two months sharing cards using products from their site. I hope that I inspired you with the cards I have shared. **UPDATE: I am staying on the DT ~ but will be away from posting during the move ~ I do have some cards that I will schedule. Thank you TDLLC for asking me to stay on!!
I will be moving in about two weeks. It's a long journey across the country and my crafty stuff has to be packed up. As soon as I get there and get things unpacked, I will be back to posting and sharing card projects ~ and maybe even some scrapbook pages!!
The reason I haven't been so active online is this kid below.. he is my youngest son and he is a high school golfer. He has made it back to the MO State Championship another year in a row. Several colleges want him to come play golf for them, but we've narrowed it down to one. I have been so blessed to have been able to watch him play and hone his game into what it is today. During his Freshman and Sophomore year I went to all his matches/tournaments that I could. The last two years I haven't missed a swing of the club. I will miss this time of year when he goes off to college and I won't be able to watch him each week......... I better get to the card!!!
Now.. let's talk about this fun "I LOVE YOU S'MORE!" card ~ I just love the adorable Lawn Fawn images and their dies that cut like butter! I also used some Lawn Fawn pattern papers.
When I started on my card I had cut everything and was laying it out to make sure it would all fit. I had stamped, colored and die-cut more pieces than I needed. I've already put the extras in a small container I have of stuff that I'll use on cards when I get to our destination.
I took some pictures along the way of the coloring ~ I didn't take a picture of the bear because I wasn't a fan of my coloring on him ~ but I sure did like the way the flames came out! I stamped all my images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Copic Markers.
For the biggest flame: I started with the red at the bottom, then the orange, dark yellow and then the lightest yellow. Blending each color as I went up.
For the middle flame: I colored the darkest orange at the bottom, then the darkest yellow, middle yellow and then the lightest yellow. Blending each color as I went up.
For the smallest flame: I colored the darkest yellow at the bottom, then middle yellow and the lightest at the top. Blending each color as I went up.
For the moon: I colored the darkest yellow in the bottom third of the moon, then colored in the middle yellow and then the lightest yellow on the top.
