Tupelo Designs LLC - Christmas Joy!

Happy Friday! This is my day to post for my favorite store - Tupelo Designs LLC! Can you believe it? Christmas is almost here! I thought I'd sneak in one more Christmas card before it's too late. There are so many wonderful Christmas stamps to select from the store that I just couldn't limit myself to one or two! 
This was made with the Waffle Flower Poinsettia stamp and matching die set. The poinsettia is a multi stamped image that was a little tricky for me. I started by stamping on plain white paper - which would be ok if you're going to do a single layer design. I wanted to die cut mine, and when I went to cut them they weren't lined up correctly.
A better way to do it would be to cut some of the dies from plain white card stock. Save the negative of the cut to use as a template inside a stamping tool. This makes it so much easier to align the images, and you can repeat the process easily by replacing the white die cut with every stamping of the design.
I stamped several in different shades of pinks and red. I used Altenew inks that are "self healing" - meaning they never leave any blotchy impressions. The ink spreads evenly over your paper as it soaks in and dries. I adhered the die cuts to a sheet of colored card stock, and added the little joy tag sentiment from the set with twine.
Tupelo Designs LLC is my favorite store because I can always find several of my favorite brands all in the same place. They carry Altenew, Concord & 9th, My Favorite Things, Lawn Fawn, Reverse Confetti, Avery Elle, and so many more! They run sales several times a year and the very best part? Shipping is ALWAYS FREE - no coupon required (USA ONLY - discounted rates overseas).

So even if I don't get everything that's on my wish list.. I know I'll be getting exactly what I want delivered straight to my door! To check out the store CLICK HERE.
