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

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 ...

 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!
