Thanks for stopping by! I have some happy news to share today! I'm joining the Design Team at Tupelo Designs! I know what you're thinking.. I'm already on lots of design teams... right? I think you know by now that I'm totally ADDICTED to paper crafts - cardmaking is my OBSESSION! I LOVE every team I work with. I couldn't use the brands I work with or recommend them to you if I didn't. The thing is that I LOVE so many things I see. I honestly couldn't afford to purchase all the products I LOVE. Design Teams afford me the ability to work with products I love and help defer the cost of my crafty budget. So many wonderful things so little time. Sigh...
That's what makes this team even better. Tupelo Designs is a store that carries so many of the brands that I love. Like Avery Elle, WPlus9, Concord & 9th, Waffle Flower and so many more!! I found Tupelo Designs when I went looking for those Clarity Brushes that are all the rage. My "regular" store was out of stock - but Tupelo had them - and they had free shipping too! So I thought I would give them a try. My package arrived in beautiful condition - like a gift just for me. They even had a little freebee inside - a package of wood buttons (do these folks know me or what?) So when I saw the design team call I thought I'd give it a go.
I made this card with Concord & 9th "You're My Person" set. I stamped the image in brown ink to give it a softer look, and then colored it with copic markers. This stamp has lots of open space so I added a very light shade of each color around the outside of each image. So for example.. the yellow flowers have a very light yellow outline around the outside, the green leaves have a green outline etc.
The stamp set has some solid images so you can stamp them on the outline design instead of coloring it if you like. I used these images to create a watermark look by stamping them in a soft pink randomly around the page. The finishing touch was adding a few gems to the flower centers to add some sparkle and shine!
If you haven't discovered Tupelo Designs yet I hope you'll give them a try - they ship most orders within 24 hours and shipping on orders $50 and up is always free.
