DT Projects for TupeloDesignsLLC -- 2 cards featuring Concord & 9th

Tuesday, September 27, 2016

Welcome friends. Today, I have two cards to share with you using the gorgeous Lace Leaf stamp set from Concord & 9th. My second card also features the coordinating die set, Grateful Leaf, as well.

TupeloDesignsLLC has the newest release from Concord & 9th in the shop available for immediate delivery. Remember that the store also offers FREE shipping in the US with no minimum purchase.  Live outside the US? No problem -- the shipping rates are very reasonable. There is also a rewards program so you earn points every time you shop which you can then exchange for a gift certificate to the store.

For my first card, I started by taking the large splatter type image from the Lace Leaf set. I stamped it using the Hero Arts Fall Ombre ink pad. I then heat embossed the beautiful leaf image over top of that with the Ranger Super Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder. Isn't it just beautiful? I then decided to add some gold to the outsides of my card panel so I ran my Versamark ink pad over the edges and then dipped them in the same gold embossing powder.  I finished off the card be heat embossing the I miss you sentiment from Concord & 9th's Map Love stamp set. I added the card panel up on foam tape and added some sequins. I can't wait to send this to a long distance friend or family member later this fall.


For my second card, I did more heat embossing of just the main leaf image. I then die cut the grateful word die from the coordinating die set three times. On the top layer, I just smooshed my ink pad over top of it to give it the same color as what I stamped the rest of the sentiment in.  Again, I added some sequins and some foam tape.

For my card, I am using the super cute Toucan of Friendship and coordinating dies.  I started by stamping and die cutting several of the images and then I did just a bit of some simple Copic coloring. I die cut the vellum piece with the Wonky Circles from MFT and then stamped a sentiment from the set. I added this all to a piece of woodgrain card stock that I cut using the largest die from Avery Elle's Wonky Stitches set.

Birthday Wishes for Clearly Whimsy Stamps

Wednesday, September 21, 2016

Hi friends. I'm sharing a fun birthday card today using newly released products from Clearly Whimsy Stamps. I started by die cutting the balloons from the Big Balloon Celebrations die collection and then doing some ink blending. As I will sometimes do on an ink blended background, I gave the balloons a spritz of water to pick up some of the ink. I then stamped the sentiment from the coordinating stamp set. I also stamped the balloon strings and rounded the bottom corners. 

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope everyone is having an amazing week.
