Something old and something new with Sveta Fotinia

Hello everyone! It's Sveta sharing today, and I prepared for you two different cards. For this first card, I used the So Fly stamp set and coordinating So Fly die set from the latest June 2018 Release.


I decided to go with a monochromatic color scheme using just touch of mint green. I stamped the main image, little clouds and the sentiment with black pigment ink. Then I die cut clouds from textured colored cardstock and adhered them using glue and foam adhesive.


I also added a little bit of grey pencil coloring on the plane. 


The second card is made using old but "oh so beautiful" Hooray Nice and Neat Die. Interesting that I used only one die to create this card. 


I die cut the wreath from both white and blue cardstock and then mixed them using an inlaid die cut technique. I adhered the asymmetrical inlaid piece in the center of a kraft panel and then adhered the entire piece to the top of a yellow card base, to get that yellow stripe at the bottom. 


As a final touch I added a few sequins from Snowfall Sequin Mix.


Hope you enjoyed today's post. Have fun!

Stencilling on YUPO

Hello there!

Mayuri here to sharing another card using the Geometric Circles stencil and the So Many Sentiments stamp set ;-)

I began by creating a background panel using YUPO paper and the Geometric Circles stencil. I dropped different colours inks and paints onto the paper before laying down the stencil and adding further colour.

I chose to leave the stencil there instead of heat setting the YUPO paper as I didn't want it to curl up. I left it overnight to dry and then removed the stencil to reveal the gorgeous pattern on the paper. I trimmed the stencilled background panel down to slightly smaller than my card base and adhered it straight down to a white card base.

I then stamped a bunch of sentiments from the So Many Sentiments set onto strips of black cardstock, sprinkled with white embossing powder and heat set. I then foam mounted them to the card front.

To finish off, I adhered a some sequins and wood veneer embellishments.

Floral Mixed Media Tags | VIDEO | Natalie Elphinstone

Hi friends, it's Natalie here today and I wanted to share some of my favourite mixed media techniques with you to create these bold and vibrant layered tags.


I think sometimes as card makers we hear the term 'mixed media' and think it's for those arty folks who like to get messy with abstract painting and collage glue and all sorts of unfamiliar colouring mediums! But mixed media just means using a variety of different mediums or materials on the same project which means it's definitely achievable with the Neat and Tangled products you already have in your stash and a few of your standard cardmaking supplies.


Think about it.... if you create a card using an ink-blended background, a watercoloured image and finish it off with a sprinkling of sequins then that's mixed media! You might have been doing it for years, but just haven't called it by that name. And it can be as messy and abstract as you would like, or you can keep it clean and simple with a more graphic appeal.


In my video today I'm going to share all the techniques I used to create these tags, along with a few tricks and secrets along the way. I hope maybe I can teach you something new, or remind you to pull out some forgotten mediums. But most of all I hope to show you how easy it can be!

          

Supplies Used:

Classic Tag 2 Die Set
Friendly Florals Stamp Set
Friendly Florals Die Set
So Many Sentiments Stamp Set
Swirly Twirly Stencil
Nesting Hexagons Stencil
Geometric Blooms Stencil

Feel free to ask any questions you might have, and definitely please share any projects you make inspired by my tutorial today. I would LOVE to see!

Happy creating!

Special Guest: Mona Toth!

Hello everyone it's Mona here. I was the winner of the Neat & Tangled Throwdown - PartyEnsemble Challenge and it's a great honor for me to be here. Today I am showing you four cards created with the new Neat & Tangled June release, I hope you will enjoy it.


For my first card I made the background with the Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide inks and splattered it with water. Then I ran the Receding Blocks Cover Plate through my Die Cut Machine.

Then I applied the Die Cut to the background, stamped the images from the So Fly stamp set, colored them with Copic Markers and ran them through the Die Cut Machine with the Coordinating dies. I glued everything to my card and stamped the sentiment.


For the second card I blended the background with Twisted Citron, Lucky Clover and Forest Moss Distress Oxide Inks. I made some images with the Magnolia Stamp and Die set.
To the center of the card I stamped the "The beauty is everywhere" sentiment with Versamark watermark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The images are colored with Copic Markers. As a final touch I added some dots with Nuvo Drops and White details.


For my third card I made a cute puppy with the Dog - Nice and Neat Die. For her paws I used the clouds from the So Fly die set.
The background is made with Receding Blocks Stencil and pink Distress Oxide inks. I glued my pieces to my card and heat embossed the stamped sentiments from the Clearly Canine stamp set.


For my last card I used the Hot Dog Stamps and Dies. After stamping and Die Cutting I colored the images with Copic Colors. For the card I picked warm tones and made a blending with Distress Oxide inks. I cut the podium shape from yellow paper stamped and heat embossed the sentiments on it then blended the edges. When my card was done as a final touch I decorated the ketchup and mustard with Glossy Accents and made some detailing with white pen.
Thank you very much for reading through my post, I hope that I have inspired you! If you like my creations follow me on Instagram. :)

Alcohol Ink Vs Copic Refill Backgrounds with Kelly Latevola

Hello Crafters! 

I hope you're having an amazing weekend!
Summer time has arrived here in Ohio and I spent yesterday outside soaking up the sun. 
Whoo hoo for summer time sunshine. 

In today's video I wanted to look at two different ways to create an alcohol ink background. 


Several people have asked me if they can use their Copic marker refills to create alcohol ink backgrounds. The answer is YES! you can. You may have to adjust your a approach but ultimately you can achieve beautiful results.  


This one is the actual Ranger alcohol ink and you can see that it dries down a bit more granulated. I also added less pigment to get intense color but needed more alcohol mixative to get it to move. 


For the Copic refill background they moved with very little mixative but I needed to add more ink to get a bright saturated color. It also seemed to dry much faster than the Ranger alcohol inks. 

You can watch both cards come together in the video below 


I love how both cards are the same but different. It just goes to show you that even with different supplies you can still get results you really do love. 


These sweet little girls on their adorable floats don't hurt either, am I right?
I love how changing up your coloring or your layout can really completely change the look of a card. 


Thank you guys so much for dropping in!
I hope you have an amazing weekend filled with lots of sunshine :)
