Neat & Tangled: Joyful Sentiments and Radiating Star Stencil


Hi there! Welcome to the third day of the November  Neat & Tangled release countdown! All of the new products will be available in the Neat & Tangled Store on Friday November 10th at 8:00 am EST!

Today we are showcasing the beautiful Radiating Star Stencil and a gorgeous stamp set called Joyful Sentiments. I absolutely love the font used for these beautiful sentiments!



Okay this may look like a pretty CAS card and one that would not take you long to make... well it shouldn't have, but I spent longer on this card than I did on any of the others for this whole release. I had a trash can full of mess ups! I stamped the sentiment in 24 different colors, embossed it in 12 different embossing powers, and colored the stencil in with 18 different shades of ink before I finally got the right color combination. But... when I did I was enthralled with this card! I love it! 




Okay if you want the final simple steps.... the sentiment was stamped in pink and red with the MISTI stamping tool and I blended yellow for the Radiating Star stencil and then went back with the red in the center.  I also added some of the new sequin mix to finish it up. Whew! LOL!


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


Don't forget - there is a giveaway every day this week of the set(s) being featured that day, and a $25 gift certificate up for grabs at the end of the week. Comment on all of the design team blogs all week for a chance to win.  Winners will be announced on the Neat & Tangled Blog Friday at 7:30am EST!


Thanks so much for stopping by!
