Neat & Tangled: Dazzling



Hi there! Welcome to the fourth day of the January  Neat & Tangled release countdown! All of the new products will be available in the Neat & Tangled Store on Friday January 5th at 8:00 am EST!


My card today is showcasing the new Dazzling stamp set and coordinating die. First I stamped the image with VersaMark ink onto Bristol Board, and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I then used Peacock Feathers Distress ink and blended over that. I sprinkled with water and then with some of the same ink diluted with water. I cut my background out with the Scalloped Dies, and adhered that to the card panel with foam tape. 



 I then stamped the image again on white card stock, colored it with Copic markers, and cut it out with the coordinating die. I adhered this with foam tape, then I added some Stickles glitter glue to the little white embossed sparkles.

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!

  1. So pretty, Kay! I love your rainbow colored "gems!" (can't think of the word for those shapes-too early for me, I guess) But they sure are pretty. The background looks terrific as well. Really like the scalloped shape. Lovely work! :) Hugs!
