Say hello to Sveta Fotinia!

Hi friends!

I'm am so excited to be here to announce our newest design team member, Sveta Fotinia!

Her style is simply stunning! I know you will love her! Be sure to leave a comment and say hello!

Here is a little about Sveta -

Hello! My name is Sveta Marchenko (blogger nickname - Fotinia), I'm 29, living with my hubby and abyssinian cat in port city of Odessa, Ukraine. I have a master degree in economics but work as a marine crew coordinator. I've discovered cardmaking about 2 years ago, since that time I can't live without stamps, inks, paper, my new friends and blog. My main hobbies before it were traveling and photography, so I also like to make layouts and mini albums to keep my memories in a beautiful way. Still cardmaking is the main passion for me: stamping, die-cutting, watercoloring and trying new techniques  is a pure magic! The main inspiration for me when I start my project are the supplies: when I take stamp set or a new die my brain starts create lots of combinations and pictures. After hard day of work, this is the best relaxing therapy for me. My dream is to have own crafty space, as now all my crafty things live in a few boxes while we are reconstructing our apartment.

Also I wanted to share with you all my happiness that I felt after I received the e-mail from our Danielle! OMG, I danced for a week at least, all my colleagues were intrigued what happened with me, why I'm jumping and making strange noises! I'm really thankful and glad to be with this team, all girls are soo amazing and inspiring here! Hope you will enjoy my new work for Neat & Tangled!

Don't you just love her card?! I love her combination of Life is Beautiful and Faceted! The soft colors and bold black statement are a striking combination!

You Are My Sunshine

Hello friends!

Danielle here sharing a card I made using My Sunshine, one of the new sets from our July release. I love how this set lends itself so easily to creating cards with a bold sentiment as the focal point!


For this card I watercolored some yellow and orange in no particular order, just randomly on the paper.  While that dried I stamped the sentiment and peeking sun in Versamark on some vellum, and then used black embossing powder to heat emboss it.  Once my watercolor panel was dry I lightly attached the vellum square with the sentiment to the front, and stitched across the top a few times.  I finished it off with some enamel dots, and then attached it to my card base!

And here is a close up

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope it is sunny wherever you are :)


Origami Map

Hey Neat & Tangled fans! It is Rachel here today sharing a card using the Origami Map stamp & die. I adore this set and always think it looks so great watercolored. I decided to keep it quick & simple and go with a rainbow theme to match the sentiment 'My world is brighter because of you'.

I did some simple stripes across the entire map. I wanted the map to be the star of the card, so I kept the rest simple. I used a thin strip of grey washi along the bottom and heat embossed the sentiment in white on a grey strip of cardstock. I balanced the top with a grey twine bow. I love bright colors combined with grey. This is such a sweet sentiment and great for sending to a friend who is far away (easy for me as I live in Switzerland and have so many friends across the ocean!).

Hope you are all having a great week so far! Thanks for stopping by today.
