Neat & Tangled Stay Cool


Hi there! I have a fun card to share with you today that I created with the adorable Stay Cool Stamp set and coordinating dies, that was part of the November release.


I started by creating a background with distress ink blended on Bristol Board Card stock. I sprinkled this with water and blotted. I cut a snowy hill out of white card stock and adhered that to the bottom of my card. All of the cute images were colored with Copic markers, cut out with the coordinating dies, and adhered with foam tape.


The sentiment is from the Scandinavian Prints Christmas stamp set. I heat embossed this with white embossing powder onto black card stock, cut it out and adhered it to the top of my card with foam tape.

Products used for this card:

Stay Cool Stamp Set
Stay Cool dies
Scandinavian Prints Christmas stamp set

I hope you have enjoyed my card today!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Pretty Pink Posh November Release Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to the November Release Blog Hop for Pretty Pink Posh! We have some wonderful projects to share with you using the newest products which are all available at Pretty Pink Posh now!



For my first card I used the Poinsettias stamp set and coordinating dies along with Elegant Holly and coordinating dies. I blended  Distress ink on Bristol Board card stock and sprinkled with water to create my background. The images were colored with Copic markers, cut out with the coordinating dies, and added with foam tape. 



The sentiment was cut out with the Happy Holidays Script die, layered three times and then adhered to the card with liquid glue. After I finished everything, I sprinkled a bit of white ink all over the card.

For my second card I used the adorable Penguin Pals and Elegant Holly stamp sets. For the background,  I created a rectangle stencil out of card stock, then blended blue and green distress ink onto Bristol Board card stock, and sprinkled with water.  I stamped the sentiment from the Penguin Pals stamp set in the center with black ink.



The adorable images were all colored with Copic markers, cut out with the coordinating dies, and adhered with foam tape.

***



And lastly I made these really cute ornament tags with the Stitched Ornament dies and the Starry Sky and Holiday mixes. I die cut the ornaments out of red and blue card stock, then cut the white borders and circles out of white. I cut the top of the ornaments out of silver glitter card stock. 



Then the fun really begin, as I sat down with my tweezers and added the beautiful little gems in different patterns to create these pretty tags! I used the Starry Sky mix on the blue ones and the Holiday mix on the red ones. I glued these down with Tombow Multi Mono liquid glue. When everything was dry, I threaded some silver string through the tops for hanging.

My Favorite Things November Release

Hello there! I am excited to share a couple of cards I made with some of the beautiful new products from the My Favorite Things November release!



For my first card, I used the Snowflake Window die and the adorable Little Angels stamp set and dies. I cut the snowflake window out of my card front and added some patterned paper behind it. I cut a frame out of Stone Gray card stock using the Stitched Mini Scalloped  Rectangle STAX and a rectangle die. I added the frame with foam tape.



The pretty little angel was colored with Copic markers, cut out with the coordinating dies, and added to the card with foam tape. The sentiment was heat embossed with white embossing powder and cut out with a banner die. I added it to the card front with foam tape as well.

***



For my second card, I used the Christmas tree Window along with another of the angels from the Little Angels stamp set. I cut the tree window out of white card stock, and layered it over a piece that I had blended Distress ink onto. I mounted this on top of a Stone gray rectangle.



The little angel was colored with Copic markers, cut out with the coordinating dies, and added with foam tape. The sentiment was heat embossed with white embossing powder, cut out with a banner die and added with foam tape. I added Stickles to the ornaments and the star, but it doesn't show up very well in the photo.

Thanks so much for stopping by! All of the products I have used for these cards are listed and linked below.

Fawny Holiday Week

Hello there! It's Fawny Holiday week on the Lawn Fawn blog and I have a fun card to share with you featuring some old and new winter and holiday products from Lawn Fawn!



One of my favorite card making techniques is creating little scenes with my stamps and dies, and the Lawn Fawn products are SO perfect for this! I love how the Leafy Tree Backdrop makes creating a scene so easy!  For my background I used distress ink on Bristol Board Card stock and sprinkled with water. 



All of the cute images were colored with Copic markers, cut out with the coordinating dies, and added with foam tape. All of the stamp sets I used are listed and linked below. The sentiment was heat embossed with white embossing powder and cut out with the Everyday Sentiment banner dies, and added with foam tape.

Neat & Tangled: Fa La La Coverplate Die


Hi there! Welcome to  the last day of the November  Neat & Tangled Release! All of the new products are available in the Neat & Tangled Store now!


Today I am showcasing the Fa La La Coverplate die and a little surprise at the bottom of my post, so be sure to scroll all the way down!



I cut the Fa La La Coverplate die out of white card stock and layered it over a red top folded card. I cut the circles out of card stock and patterned paper using the circles dies that are included in the Build A Tag die set. The trees were cut out with the Scandinavian Prints Christmas Dies, and the sentiment is from the Scandinavian Prints Christmas stamp set. 





And here's the little surprise! Neat & Tangled has released two more adorable stitching dies! This one is called Ugly Sweater!


This is a stitching die and is super sweet stitched up with felt, but I really wanted to make a card with it. I die cut all the pieces out of colorful card stock, and glued them together with liquid glue. I added some patterned paper to my card front and then adhered the cute, not ugly, sweater with foam tape. I added a little sentiment at the bottom. It's from the Stay Cool stamp set. 





Be sure to stop by the Neat and Tangled Blog to see all of the design team inspiration! 


And remember, the new products are live in the store now at Neat & Tangled!!
