Getting to Know You Blog Hop!

Hello friends! Starting off your Monday with a fun, different sort of post!

I was tagged by my sweet friend, Chari Moss, to do a little "getting to know me" post. So today I will do my best to answer some crafty questions!

1. What creative projects are you currently working on?
Lots of top secret stuff :x hehe!  We are just beginning our September release today so I have lots of new goodies I am playing with! I also just received our October release samples and have started inking them up :)

2. What inspires your designs?
Oh gosh, what doesn't? I would say I find a lot of inspiration on Instagram these days by using the "Explore" feature.  I also really like Pinterest when I need a good jump start. It's just so easy to type in something like "pumpkins" and get endless inspiration! And clothes - so many fun patterns and images!

3. What method or process do you apply to each of your creative projects and how long does each project take to complete?
As far as method I always start with sketching out some rough ideas.  Once I have a relatively good idea, I sit down and get to work! While I might have a sketch of the layout I still need to decide on colors/patterns which takes me FOREVER sometimes, but that is what I find fun! While my style is CAS, that often proves challenging because there are so few elements that everything needs to work, otherwise it will be pretty noticeable! As far as how long, hours. Even though I sit down to make 1 card it usually leads to lots of ideas for other cards and I get sidetracked very easily. Plus my cards rarely look my original sketch when I finish ;)

4. If you had to describe your 'signature' style what would it be?
Definitely clean and simple, sometimes collage style.

5. What three crafting tools/products can you not live without?
Three? Seriously? I need foam dimensionals, scissors, and vellum...in addition to stamps, ink, adhesive, enamel dots, etc. etc. etc. ;)

So now it's my turn to tag a few people to play!


Anna Kossakovskaya - Anna is another Neat and Tangled team member! She has such a wonderful positive energy and knocks every project out of the park!

Pumpkin Everything!


Pumpkin coffee, pumpkin bread, pumpkin scented candles...I love them all! While saying goodbye to Summer is always sad, all things pumpkin help with the transition! 

In honor of Fall and all things pumpkin I doodled up this free digital stamp for you! As with all our digital stamps, these images are copyrighted, so when posting projects or submitting for publication credit must be given to Neat and Tangled.

It's easy to use!
1. Right click image
2. Save to your computer
3. Open in editing software
4. Print, and get crafty! Color, cut, paper piece, whatever your heart desires!

I decided to create my project digitally! I made this fun print to frame and hang in our home.
And Jocelyn made two cards using the digi!

Can't wait to see what you create using this new digital stamp!

What's your favorite thing about Fall?

September Guest Designer: Lucy Abrams!


Hello friends! Our September guest, Lucy, is back today with one final project for you! It has been so much fun having her with us! She has a super cute card for you today!
----------
Hello. Today it's my final post for Neat and Tangled, and I'm sticking with my paper piecing them. I chose the sweet little telephone stamp from the Just Hello set, and decided to give it a happy face. I used the smiley face and speech bubble stamps from the Sketchy Cupcakes set. 
I love bringing inanimate objects to life in this way. :)

I'd like to send a huge thank you to Danielle for having me this month. It's been an absolute pleasure playing with your cute stamps Danielle!
----------
Don't forget our September release starts Monday the 22nd! We have 1 new sequin mix, 6 new stamp sets and some coordinating dies!

Rainbow coloured dreams!

Hello there!

Mayuri here to share a card today - I used some images from the Gifts for You stamp set to create a row of rainbow balloons ;-)

This (almost) one layer card is so quick and easy to create, you could batch produce a few for your stash! The best bit?! You can change up the sentiment to suit your needs ;-)

I stamped the balloons in a range of Distress Inks onto a white card base, adjusting the angle and position of each impression to give them a more random appearance. Then I stamped the tiny hearts from the same set, upside down, to create the knotted parts of the balloons - this made it easier to give the drawn, wiggly lines something to hold on to ;-)

I stamped the Dreams sentiment in black ink and went over it with some clear Wink of Stella. At this point, I thought the card was missing something, so filled some of the dots on the balloons with Diamond Stickles.

I also added a few coloured sequins to finish up (Crystal Clear, Lemon Satin, Shamrock Satin, and Pink Lemonade).

Thanks for stopping by!

Halloween!!

Hi, everyone! So I think I get a little too excited about Halloween sometimes. I'm seeing skulls, pumpkins and ghosts all over now so I figured it was time to start creating my Halloween cards. Hey, I'm not complaining! The blacks and oranges get me so excited!! So I figured I'd bust out my awesome set, Graveyard Shift! Here's my card!


To start the card off, I stamped the cob webs in light grey to create a spooky little background. On a piece of vellum, I heat embossed the skeleton in white. I attached it to the base with foam dots. I then stamped the sentiment in black ink, attached a few sequins and called it a day!


I love the simplicity of the card! Maybe it's just because I love Halloween in general! Make sure to stop by the shop and pick this bad boy up. He's only $6!! A steal if you ask me :)



Thanks so much for stopping by!! See you next week for the release!!
