TupeloDesignsLLC Guest Designer

Happy Sunday, my friends!  I'm back for the month of October guest designing for TupeloDesignsLLC!  Today I'm going to be sharing a card combining products from 2 of my favorite companies, Reverse Confetti and My Favorite Things.  In addition to carrying MANY of the most popular craft brands, TupeloDesignsLLC offers their customers the following benefits:

**Free shipping for all US orders (no minimum purchase or code required)

**Discounted international shipping rates

**Lightening FAST shipping, all in-stock items are shipped the same or next day 

**Loyalty Rewards Program

**Excellent customer service - all emails are answered within 12 hours by the owner

If you haven't had a chance to check them out yet, I hope you'll do so today!

To make this card I started with a black card base and added patterned paper from Reverse Confetti's FRIGHT NIGHT 6X6 Paper Pad.  There are so many wonderful patterns in this paper pad!  I cut a panel of the patterned paper from the center of the piece with a basic stitched rectangle die and popped it up on a piece of black fun foam cut to the same size.  To make the mugs I started by doing some ink blending on white card stock using SALTY OCEAN and TUMBLED GLASS Distress Ink for the mug on the left and PEELED PAINT and MOWED LAWN for the mug on the right.  Next I added some water splatters and some white ink splatters to the paper and let it dry.  I die cut the mugs using one of my all time favorite die cutting sets for coffee and cocoa cards, My Favorite Things HOT COCOA CUPS Die-Namics.  For the inside of the mugs I die cut the 2 pieces and colored them with Copic markers, E51 and E55.

I embellished my mugs with die cut hearts cut from orange and black card stock.  I added Ranger Inkssentials GLOSSY ACCENTS to the orange hearts, along with some orange glitter.  I also added GLOSSY ACCENTS to the inside of the mugs.  The sentiment is from My Favorite Things HUG IN A MUG stamp set, which coordinates perfectly with the mug die set!  I stamped it on black card stock and embossed in white.  I finished my card by adding some black twine to the top.

I hope that you're having a wonderful weekend!  I'll be back next Sunday with another project for TupeloDesignsLLC!
