Soft card

Hello, dear friends! Today I (Anna) am here to share with you a very soft and light card. This is perfect for when you want to tell somebody something very special. And the phrase "My world is brighter because of you" from Origami Map set, perfectly reflects this.


I embossed the phrase in white on a label die cut and then added a little bit of pink Distress ink on the label and sprinkled it with water. When everything was dry, I stamped rosettes from the So Very Blessed set.


And as a final accent to brighten things - tone on tone sequins (Crystal Clear, Pink Lemonade, Pixie Dust).


Wish you a bright day!

So very blessed - 3D style!

Hello there!

Mayuri here to share a simple technique that works brilliantly for so many of the Neat & Tangled scripty sentiment stamps ;-)

This is like repeat stamping, but with a slight twist - instead of making a pattern, you offset each impression, leaving you with a sort of 3D effect.

I took some watercolour paper, three shades of blue Distress Inks and stamped the So Very Blessed sentiment repeatedly, starting with the lightest and ending with the darkest. The very last impression was done with some black dye ink so that it could stand out more.

For some added detail, I used a white gel pen to fill in some of the open areas in the leaves and flowers, and clear Wink of Stella over the black areas. I also splattered small drops of ink onto the watercolour panel before foam mounting it to a dark blue shimmery card base.

To finish up, I added a twine bow, an array of Neat & Tangled sequins and a few gemstones.

I think this technique will work so well with Warm Wishes, Be Full, My Favorite and Hope Anchors!

Thanks for stopping by!

A Little Sparkle Holiday Card

We all need a bit of sparkle in our lives, right? How about a simple sparky holiday card using the fabulous Merry & Bright set?


I will honest with you, this is my most favorite holiday stamp set of all times! Perfect for so so many different cards and other projects too!  



This particular card appeared after a simple stamping session. I wanted to create a fun partial background using one of the ornaments from the set. I stamped it a few times alternating the direction and the color of ink. And ended up having somewhat of a pink and grey ombre effect which I just adore!

All is Calm, All is Bright

Hi there!! It's Kristen here!! Today, I'm here with a clean and simple card. It's super easy to reproduce for Christmas cards! Let's just get to it!


For this card, I used Winter Wishes. I LOVE this stamp set. It's super simple and totally my style. I stamped the trees in green and I covered them in enamel dots I colored with copic markers. I then stamped the house and sentiment in black ink. To finish off the card I added a snow strip for a hill. 

Here's a close up!

December Guest Designer: Lea Lawson!

Happy Friday! We made it!  And what better way to kick start your weekend, than with a post from our December guest designer Lea Lawson!  She has a gorgeous card for you today! I absolutely love how she created a holiday card using our Origami Map set!
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
Hi again, Neat & Tangled friends!!  Lea Lawson here today to share another project as this month's guest designer!  I'm so excited about how this project turned out...I really hope that you like it!!

For today's card I combined the Christmas goodness of the Very Merry stamp set with the non-holiday themed Origami Maps stamp set, which paired together even better than I thought they would!  Check it out!!

Card Directions: 
  1. Cut an A2 card base from white orange peel textured cardstock. 
  2. Cut Strathmore art paper slightly smaller than the card base. 
  3. Stamp & heat emboss the origami map in white to the front, then let cool.
  4. Loosely watercolor the inside of the map in teal, then the outside in light blue.
  5. Let the watercolor dry completely, then lightly wipe the paint off the embossed lines.
  6. Lightly mist the back of the paper with water, & place between two books to flatten.  (It should take about 10 minutes to dry flat.)
  7. Once dry, adhere the watercolor block to the card base.
  8. Stamp the sentiment to the lower left corner in Versamark onyx black ink, then add a glittered @ sign to finish it.
  9. Diecut the santa sleigh & star from glittered paper, then adhere to the front with foam adhesive.
  10. Accent the star with a jewel to complete the card.
Thanks so much for checking out my card today!! I will be back next week with one more seasonal card to share with you as the guest this month.  Have a wonderful weekend!

Lea

stop & slow down





Hello Neat & Tangled fans!  It's Amy here with a special holiday giftie:


I realize that my tag doesn't scream 'holidays'....but I think something important to keep in mind with all the flurry of holiday activities is to Stop & Slow Down!  Savor the moments!

I used the Stop and Go set:



I also used Falling Flakes:


I used watercolors to color my tag.

I have a certain someone that I'll be sending this little giftie to.  I hope that it makes her take time for herself during these especially chaotic days!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
