You Warm My Heart




Hello Neat & Tangled Fans!  It's Amy with a non-traditional Valentine's Day Card!  I believe a majority of people think of hearts along with pink + red = Valentine's Day. 


Some of you know that I'm a huge coffee fan so what better Valentine's Day card...but one that has coffee!  The Coffee Cups from Perfect Blend have been combined with the very popular Box Nice & Neat Die.  

I love mixing up non-traditional colors for occasions.  How about you?

Thanks so much for stoppin' by!

Neat & Tangled / My Sweet Petunia Bonus Post!

Hey everyone!  We've got a special treat today, a bonus card and video to share today from Iliana over at My Sweet Petunia.

I hope you all have been enjoying our week.  Neat and Tangled really pampered me, providing with their wonderful stamp sets.  Due to the weather my package was a little late.  So I just completed this card in hopes of participated at the end.


I created the background using the Clouds stamp set and a lot of masking.  The sentiment from that same set was stamped on the cloud on the Just Thinking of You stamp set.  

This card is a great reminder to me that when things are tough that there is always something good hiding in it.  Sometimes, I focus on the dark and not the light.  It is so easy to get wrapped up in the trouble and forget to look around at all the people that lift you up in encouragement.

Neat and Tangled has been a great example of that silver lining.  They did an awesome job this week with their talented design team.  Especially, Miriam Prantner that orchestrated this whole collaboration.  Thank you Neat and Tangled.

Please enjoy this video.



Thanks to Iliana!  It really was our pleasure to team up with My Sweet Petunia, and I think it showed in the projects and videos this week!  Don't forget that you have until the end of the day to leave comments here and at the My Sweet Petunia blog to be in the running for the prizes - $100 to the N&T store and a MISTI!

Neat & Tangled / My Sweet Petunia Collaboration Week - Day 5

I can't believe that today is our last day with My Sweet Petunia!

My Sweet Petunia manufactures the MISTI (Most Incredible Stamp Tool Invented), which was one of the Hot Product winners at this year's CHA.  Our team has been loving using their new MISTIs and all this week we've been showcasing how the MISTI simplifies (and makes foolproof) the stamping process as well as techniques that it enables.

There are some amazing prizes up for grabs.  Comment all week on our collaboration posts to be in the drawing to receive your own MISTI, and be sure to stop by the My Sweet Petunia blog.  We've divided the team up this week, some will be posting here and some will be posting there.  Comments left on the My Sweet Petunia blog will put you in the running for a $100 Neat & Tangled credit!

To wrap up the week, we've got both Taheerah and Sveta are sharing today.  

Hey everyone! Taheerah here, ready to see out this collaboration in style! What an amazing week of projects we've had - and we've had a great chance to see just how awesome the MISTI is! I wouldn't be without mine!!

For my card today I went with a Star Wars theme, featuring A Long Time Ago and Time Warp:


So fun! See the white lines on the panel? I was able to overstamp the same stamp three times for a really saturated white - impossible to do by eye without the placement being off! Never a problem with MISTI!


I also use my MISTI to help plan the layout of a card. Here you can see how I positioned some stamps to get them straight and in the right place.


I changed my mind on which sentiments to use and was able to use the gridded lid to get my placement and layout perfect before stamping down!


The final card could easily be replicated again and again, with perfect results every time! All hail the MISTI - truly one of the best inventions our industry has ever seen!

And here is Sveta:

I'm so thrilled to take a part in this collaboration and share my impressions of using MISTI tool! I never thought stamping can be so easy!  It's perfect!  You can make geometric backgrounds with non-background stamps, get bold and clear images from large solid stamps, use layered stamps with ease, achieve even coverage with dye inks, easily stamp after die cutting, try unique techniques, and you can even use the it as a grid mat!


For my card I used stamps from our latest release: the Perfect blend and the Ornate Frames and the Ornate Frames dies.  I made a video tutorial that will show you a several ways of how MISTI makes creating a card much easier!  I'm sorry that you will not hear my voice with comments, because I have a sore throat, but if you are interested in details - please head to my blog!



OK, now head over to the My Sweet Petunia blog to check out what Miriam created.  Here's a little sneak peek for you:


We want to send out a HUGE thanks to Iliana at My Sweet Petunia.  This collaboration has been such a treat for the team, we LOVE our MISTIs!

Hello there! Laura here and today I have a project featuring the Painted Hello & Heart of Gold stamp set as well as using my beloved MISTI.

Neat & Tangled-Painted Hello

I love using my MISTI. It not only allows me to get perfect placement and great ink coverage, but it also prevents me from inking an image or sentiment unevenly.

Neat & Tangled-Painted Hello

Here's a little video to show you how I created my project.

Mayuri is up to bat today:

This is the first time I used the MISTI and I can honestly say that I'm hooked!

For my card, I began by stamping the speech bubble from Turkey Talk backwards, first onto a card base, but also onto a panel of cardstock that was of the same size.

I like how you can use the MISTI in this way, to create the same pattern endlessly on individual panels, knowing that it'll stamp in exactly the same place each time! Its perfect for what I wanted to do for the focal element of my card!

To finish off the pattern, I stamped the solid heart from Jump Start My Heart towards the bottom of the card. I also flipped the speech bubble stamp the right way round and stamped the outline in the same place as the solid impressions.

Out of the stamped panel of cardstock I die-cut the sentiment using the Hello There die - this is where the MISTI saved the day! I knew that when I adhered the die-cut piece to the card front, it would match perfectly! And it did!

To finish, I stamped a sentiment with black die ink and scattered a few Sparkling Clear and Buttercream Satin sequins.

OK, now head over to the My Sweet Petunia blog to check out what Nina-Marie created.  Here's a little sneak peek for you:

Today Elena is sharing this adorable card using our Lumberjack Love stamp set!



Hi there! I'm thrilled to be collaborating with My Sweet Petunia this week. I can't even tell you all the ways I love my MISTI. I am a shaky-hands kind of crafter, and just being able to double-stamp a sentiment or image when I don't get full ink coverage... that is worth everything.

For my card today I used the MISTI to map out my Lumberjack Love scene - the grid lines are so useful for scene-building! I was able to stamp the sentiment, the tree stump and the trio of hearts above in just one take. I then added the grass to create my grounding, and stamped the bird on top of the bear's head before cutting them out and popping them up onto the card.


I hope you like it!  


OK, now head over to the My Sweet Petunia blog to check out what Amy created.

Here's a little sneak peek for you:



See you back here tomorrow!
