Hope Anchors

Hey y'all! Kristen here showing you different ways to use your Hope Anchors stamp. 



I used the same layout, just different materials and colors!! Here's what I came up with. :)


All three cards have a different feel! For the first, I wanted to use a coral, mint and gold ink pallet. I'm a such a sucker for these colors!!


For the second card, I used different shades of grey. Actually, they are from Simon Says Stamps new release of inks. They're seriously the perfect shades! I wanted to create an ombre effect with this card. 


For the last card, I used your typical nautical colors: navy and red. I just love the simplicity of this card! 


Well that's it from me today! Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today! :)

mini card challenge!



Hey all, it's Amy T here!  I'm super excited to be officially on the Neat & Tangled team!

I thought it would be fun to play along with the little tangles challenge:



This trio of cards all have a base of 4.25 x 4.25 inches.


I love the combo of color and patterns.  A great way to combine them is to use heat embossing.  Ordinarily with a navy background, using white or black heat embossing would not make the impact that this Paper Source Picante Embossing Powder does!

I've always been a fan of Danielle's swirly sentiments:




These are the Neat & Tangled stamps I used in today's mini trio:

Stop and Go Blog Hop!

Hello friends! Danielle here for a super fun blog hop to kick off your week! Today I am joined by Miriam Prantner and lots of awesomely talented friends to showcase another awesome set Miriam has designed for Neat and Tangled, Stop and Go!
And here is my card!

This card was super easy to make! I just stamped and paper pieced the different elements of the stop light. Then I got out my ruler to draw a line very lightly in pencil so I could be sure to get my sentiment straight (yay for me being patient and not just stamping haphazardly!). I stamped that and waited a good time for it to dry before very carefully erasing the pencil line. I popped up the stop light with some foam dimensional and called it a day!
Stop and Go Blog Hop

Next on the hop is Miriam, so be sure to stop by and see what she has made!  See the full list of participants below:

Thank you and Goodbye

Hello friends.

I'm here with SUCH a hard post today.

It's my last for Neat and Tangled :(

I've been thinking and thinking and thinking about this. I LOVE being a part of the Neat and Tangled team, it's such a fun, supportive, innovative team and the stamps? Well, I love 'em. Plain and Simple.

But it's time. After two years and SO much fun, so many fabulous stamp sets, it's time for me to let the new team (and a few new members who are yet to come), perform their magic with the stamps.

And the more I see the projects the new DT members are making, such amazing, INSPIRATIONAL cards, the more I know it's the right decision.

So here is my last card as a Neat and Tangled DT member (but definitely not my last card using Neat and Tangled :))




I wanted to keep it simple, because really, what more is there to say?


Thank you Danielle, for having me, for asking me, for letting me be a part of your dream coming true, it's been an honour.

xoxo

April Guest Designer: Teri Anderson!

Hello friends! Happy Friday!

Today here with another card from our amazing guest designer, Teri Anderson!

She stamped Diamonds with Distress Ink on watercolor paper, then used a water brush to spread the color around to get that perfect messy, artsy look! After the ink dried she did some fun embellishing with enamel dots, pink floss, and gems! The sentiment is from Kindness Matters.



I love everything about this card! The colors are so bright and cheerful :)

Have a great weekend!
Danielle

Little Birdie + Goodbye

Hello Friends!  Today I have a sweet card to share with you.  I used 4 different sets on this card and I love how sweet it turned out.

ThinkingOfYouBirdie

First I cut a 3x4 journaling card from aqua card stock then I stamped the Sunburst background stamp using Tide Pool ink.  I stamped my cloud image from Just Thinking of You in Charcoal Hero Arts Shadow ink and the sentiment in Pale Tomato Hero Arts Shadow ink.  The little heart is stamped in Pale Tomato as well with a layer of Wink of Stella clear glitter over top.  I stamped the little birdie from Swirly Twirly Tags and colored him with copics before cutting him out.  I stamped the gray card base with the striped border from On the Strip in Charcoal ink.

Thanks for stopping by and allowing me to share my project with you today.  This is my last post as a Design Team member here at Neat & Tangled.  I am stepping away to allow new members to shine and share their lovely creations with you.  Thanks to Danielle for having me.  Bittersweet but with that I say Goodbye. <3

Love to you all!

Watercolor background with gesso

Hi everyone! This is Yana sharing another card with you using fabulous Neat & Tangled stamps. I really like the Hope Anchors the Soul stamp and I've been experimenting a lot with it lately. 

So here is a card I came up with a couple of days ago - I created a watercolour background around the large heat embossed sentiment.


Gesso helped me to keep the watercolour background not very bright and it also added some texture to my card. 
Here's a video showing how the card was done. Enjoy!
