Meet Tinker and Sasha, the newest members of the Make Shoppe characters! These original illustrations were done by an extremely talented 3D artist,  Chris Weeks. Chris is also the creator of me, Tutu and all my Make Shoppe side kicks. Yes…even Goofy Maple who hasn’t managed to make a mess in months now. But just wait…it’s coming…

hello…thinking of you…bon voyage…?

Hello from the Make Shoppe! Tutu needs your help! What type of occasion or event should this card be for? Hello, Get Well,  Bon Voyage, With Sympathy, House Warming, Thinking of you or maybe any of the above?  This card idea is so simple and can easily be used for any occasion. I always make more than one just to keep on hand. Let’s get started…

What you’ll need:
~ Tree Punches
~ Ink Colors
~Scrap Paper
~Card Stock as your card base
~Craft or Cosmetic Sponges

Let’s practice…

Materials

Using scrap paper, punch out the tree shapes

Use the punched page as your stencil

Use the sponge to absorb the ink and blot over the stencil

Repeat with differently colored inks

Experiment with stamp placement

 

Now that you’re comfortable try this on a real piece of card stock and create your card!

From me to you…

Frog Card Evolution!

Frog Card Evolution!

Hey there Make Shoppers! As you all know, Father’s Day is this Sunday June 17th. Do you have a card ready for Dad? Well no worries because I’ll be sharing my Father’s Day card ideas with you!
As you can see in the featured picture all you need is some colored card stock and some basic punches to get things started. Try using your imagination to create certain shapes. For example, for the body of my frog I used a round circle, a heart shape punch for the legs and a maple leaf punch for the frog feet. Also, don’t worry about being too perfect…your card should have a handcrafted feel to it that Dad will love!
I would absolutely love to see your beautiful creations out there. So if you’ve made this card, email me a picture, PLEASE!  tutusmakeshoppe@gmail.com
