DT Projects for TupeloDesignsLLC - 3 Cards

Saturday, April 8, 2017

Happy Saturday friends. Thanks for stopping by today. I have 3 cards to share with you today for TupeloDesignsLLC. They all use the beautiful Medallion Flower Builder stamp set from Neat & Tangled. 

Have you shopped yet at TupeloDesignsLLC? Dan adds new products to the store nearly daily and recently added lots of coloring mediums. And don't forget about FREE shipping no matter where you live - just make the minimum required purchase and your order will ship for FREE. (In the USA - there is no required minimum)

For my first card, I did some blending with my Distress Oxide inks. I used Broken China, Worn Lipstick, Wilted Violet and Cracked Pistachio.  I just love the background I was able to create.  I then arranged several of the images from the Medallion Flower Builder stamp set all onto my Misti at one time. I stamped them with a nice crisp black ink. Then sentiment is from that same stamp set. I then added some Nuvo drops as a final embellishemnt. They do match the card base a bit better than they are showing up in the photo.

For my second card, I left the images where they were in my Misti and this time, did a bit of heat embossing in white. I then flipped my card around so I could stamp the other corner. I then did a bit of ink blending, this time with just some regular Distress inks in Chipped Sapphire, Cracked Pistachio and Salty Ocean.

I stamped and die cut my sentiment from a Neat and Tangled set called Painted Hello. I decided that my panel would look better with some shimmer spray. Unfortunately, it made the ink move a bit strangely so I'm not completely loving how it looks now but that's okay. It's still a handmade card and one that I will be proud to send to a friend.

For my last card, I heat embossed those same images again. This time, I just used some Twisted Citron Distress ink and blended it so it would fade to light towards the bottom. One my panel was done, I die cut it with the large die from the Blueprints 31 die set from MFT. I added it with some foam tape and then added some Apple Green Nuvo drops to finish off the card.

If you've stuck with me for this whole post, a big thank you. I know that was a lot. I had so much fun playing with this set and am looking forward to using it again in a different way. Crafty hugs!

Of course I read the entire post. You've created three stellar cards, Alanna! That first one with the distress oxide inks is fabulous. I really like how the ink reacted. Very cool. I also really like the different looks you were able to achieve with the same stamps, but with different colors. So fun and fabulous! Wonderful work! :) Hugs!

Alanna, you are making such great, creative things that I simply MUST read the entire post to learn how you did it! Excellent work! I think the last two, especially, look very Hawaiian! Hugs!
