January Guest Designer: Laura Sterckx!

Happy Friday! Today we have another card from our incredible January guest designer, Laura Sterckx!  Her card today is so incredibly sweet! 
 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
Hello Neat and Tangled fans. It's Laura here with my second blog post as a Neat and Tangled guest designer. Today I am sharing a project combining two N&T stamp sets and a beautiful mix of sequins. 
I noticed that gems and diamonds are oh-so hot in the card making world lately. That's why I used the beautiful Sparkle and Shine stamp set today. After stamping two of the gems on patterned paper by Dear Lizzy, I cut them out and adhered them on a white notecard. Oh and of course I added a bit of sparkle on there using a Clear Wink of Stella pen. 
I am still slightly obsessed with the Little Bear stamp set. Every time I take a look at the bear, I just want to grab my black ink, stamp it on card stock and color it using Copic markers. That's exactly what I did today. :) Next, I created a sequin shaker using a pretty scalloped frame from Dear Lizzy and the Pixie Dust sequin mix from N&T. Finally, I adhered the bear on top of the acetate and I also created a speech bubble using a die cut from Simon Says Stamp and a greeting from the Sparkle and Shine stamp set

That's if for today! :) I'll be back soon with another project using wonderful Neat and Tangled products. Thanks for stopping by. XO

Clean and Simple Hello Card from May

Hi there!! It's May here! Today, I'd like to share one layer cards that I made using same image in two different ways.


I wanted to create a 3D effect inspired by the image I found here. So I stamped my light bulb and sentiment twice with a slight twist using neon inks: blue and pink. It's definitely CAS and super easy to reproduce. FYI, I used the light bulb from Sparkle and Shine, the string from Just for You, and the sentiment from Out of the Box.


For my next card, I went to sort of messy with blending/masking technique. I stamped light bulbs in different positions and inked the colors with several kinds of Distress Inks. I finished it off with the sentiment from Origami Map. It's hard to see from the photo above, but I added some shimmer over the light bulbs using clear Wink of Stella. These are the stamps sets that I used to create my two cards:


Well, that’s all I have today. Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy crafting!

More Paper Cut Flowers Inspiration

Hey there, Neat & Tangled fans. It's Rachel here today sharing some more inspiration for the amazing new set, Paper Cut Flowers. I absolutely adore this unique set and I couldn't wait to create some more cards using these gorgeous designs.

I was in need of a 1 layer card, so I chose to use some masking to create depth with the flowers and leaves. I also love bold colors stamped onto kraft. I highlighted the stamped images with pops of white using colored pencils. The white flowers are accented with pink & green colored pencils.

After stamping and coloring, I added some Wink of Stella glitter over the pink flowers to give them some extra pop.


I also love this large sentiment - My Favorite. These big sentiments are great for 1 layer cards as they really do all the work for you!



Thanks so much for stopping by the Neat & Tangled blog today and have a great week!

Congratulations card using Holiday products

Hello everyone, Yana is here and today I'd like to share a Congratulations card using Holiday products from Neat & Tangled.

I love Christmas and New Year themed stamp sets and I, one would say, collect those. But I always want to use them for other projects, not just during the holiday season. Thus the card I'm sharing today - I used several stamp sets from Neat & Tangled most of which are holiday-themed sets.

Lets take a closer look, shall we?

I started working on this card by die cutting a rectangle out of white cardstock. To create a fun starry background I used the stars stamp from the Very Merry set and repeatedly stamped those onto my paper using versa mark ink. I used platinum embossing powder and quickly heat set those. 

Next I stamped several houses in black using house stamp from the Winter Wishes set. It has some fantastic images which can be used all year round, not just for the holidays. To finish the design I also added little leaf images from the So Very Blessed Set.


The Congratulations sentiment came from the Everyday Labels set which is truly one of my favorite sets from Neat & Tangled.

Here's one final look at my project:


Thank you for stopping by today!
You can find the list of supplies I used to create this simple congratulations card below. Have a wonderful day!

Paper Cut Congratulations


Hi, it's Amy!  So, what did you think of last week's January New Release?!  I know, pretty fun, eh?  I'm sharing a card that I made with one of the new sets, Paper Cut Flowers.


I really love this new floral set for the unique blooms.  On my card today, I stamped the blooms with pigment ink and followed up with clear embossing powder.  I love that look because it gives the design a subtle texture.  

The sentiment is from the Everyday Labels set, it a great match up for the floral print pattern.
