Hi for Honey Bee Stamps

Sunday, June 25, 2017

Welcome friends. In case you don't follow me on social media, I am now part of the Honey Bee Stamps Social Media Design Team and I couldn't be more thrilled. You will be seeing weekly posts from me on Sundays using these super fun stamps and dies.

For my first project, I wanted to use the Sweet as Honey stamp set. This was my first ever Honey Bee Stamps stamp set and it's only the 2nd time I've used it. I started by heat embossing all the floral images and leaves from the set multiple times. I then did some simple ink blending with my Distress inks.  I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and set them aside. 

On my card base, I knew I wanted just a bit of interest so I stamped the fun honeycomb image a few times in a couple of the corners. I then die cut two ovals and stamped my sentiment onto the smaller one. The sentiment is also from the same Sweet as Honey set.  

I adhered my ovals, did a bit of flower arranging, rounded the bottom 2 corners and added some clear confetti and the card is complete.

Thank you so much for stopping by today - I'm so glad you did.  Crafty hugs!

DT Projects for TupeloDesignsLLC

Thursday, June 22, 2017

Welcome friends. I have two cards to share with you today for TupeloDesignsLLC using lots of fun Lawn Fawn products.

For my first card, I started by die cutting the Leafy Tree Backdrop: Landscape die. I masked off the outer edge of the die so that I could ink up the tree trunk. I used the Simple Grassy Hillsides dies to cut some white card stock which I added Twisted Citron Distress Ink to add color.  I added some cloud detail to the background with some Tumbled Glass ink and stamped the sentiment from the Meow you Doin' stamp set. I finished off the card by stamping and die cutting one of the cute cat images from the Meow you Doin' set.  I added the sweet little kitty into the grass along with a party hat from the same set.

For my second card, I stamped one of the Happy sentiments from the Happy Happy Happy stamp set repeatedly in rainbow order. I left room for the supporting sentiment. I trimmed this panel down and then added foam tape. I added some MFT Black & White Paper Pack.

Welcome friends. I have two cards to share with you today for TupeloDesignsLLC. Before I get to the cards, I wanted to let you know that the store has added many new companies and lots of new products and many of the new releases are marked down 20% - no coupon needed. And for my US friends, you always get FREE shipping in the US with no minimum purchase.

Now, onto the cards.  For both cards, I am using the beautiful Flutter stamp set from Tim Holtz. And while I didn't use them on today's cards, Sizzix has just released coordinating dies for this set that are available for pre-order now from TupeloDesignsLLC.

For my first card, I started by stamping one of the butterfly images from the Flutter stamp set 4 times in varying shades of orange and yellow ink to create an ombre effect. I stamped a sentiment from MFT's More Essential Sentiments and added my focal pattern to the Black & White Basics Paper Pack from MFT. I rounded the corners and this CAS card is done.

For my second card, I arranged several of the butterfly images onto my Misti and white heat embossed them. I then used various shades of Distress Inks to do some emboss resist. I stamped the sentiments from the WPlus9 That is All stamp set and also used the coordinating dies to cut out the larger sentiment.

Thanks so much for visiting today friends. Crafty hugs!

Happy Thursday friends. I'm back today with another card for the June Whimsy Stamps release and for today's card, I am using the gorgeous Paws to Remember stamp set.

I stamped the large tree image and the cat silhouette onto some light blue patterned paper. I then added a grassy hill.

On the inside, I stamped more sentiments. Each line here on my card is a different sentiment so you can really customize your card the way you need.

Whimsy Stamps June Release Day #1

Wednesday, June 14, 2017

Hi friends and welcome to Day 1 of the June Whimsy Stamps release. There are lots of great products available now in the store and I'll be here the next 3 days sharing some projects with you.

Click here to go shopping.

I am using the new Thank You Friend stamp set for both cards today. I did some ink blending and smooshing with some Distress inks on both cards. I then stamped the large sentiment and a supporting sentiment on both cards. As a finishing touch on the first card, I stamped some of the stars from the same stamp set.

For my second card, I did the same thing but this time, I took one of the Hand Stitched Nested Rectangle dies and impressed them into my card panel to frame my sentiments. I then added some Summer Breeze enamel dots from Whimsy Stamps.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Crafty hugs!
