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.


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! 

If you do like this video, please like, comment and share it with your crafty friends! Thank you!

Video: Creating woodgrain background with your inks

Hello there,

want a new video-tutorial? Last week I found a tutorial on a technique that creates a stunning woodgrain background that looks even more awesome if it's combined with the large Neat & Tangled sentiment stamps.
The best thing about it: it is easy, it's quick and you don't have to put a lot effort into it. So I really wanted to share this with you and created two cards using the same technique, to show you some of the possibilities.

The video is cut and also sped up, but let me tell you that both cards did take about 15 minutes, so one card can easily be done in less than ten minutes. I hope you give this technique a try! (I totally fell in love with it)

Have a nice day, and enjoy some crafty time!



Patchwork watercolour!

Hey everyone, Mayuri here and today I'm sharing a card I prepared using the My Favorite stamp set ;-).

I've been wanting to play around with watercolouring techniques and went for one of the more easier ones to start with - basically stamping your chosen image with Versamark and heat embossing with clear or white embossing powder, then painting with watercolour! Easy peasy!

The heat embossed area resists the watercolouring leaving you with a kind of patchwork effect, which I didn't mind for my first attempt ;-). You'll see that I only partially stamped the image so that I could overlay a heart shaped aperture over the watercolouring - I added some letter stickers to complete the sentiment.

I also stamped the little arrows from the same set around the sentiment to complete the card! Not a sequin or gemstone in sight, which is pretty restrained for me!

These handwritten style sentiments are fabulous because you can do all sorts of techniques, including partially stamping them if you want to combine with other techniques - I think if I wanted to go further with this card, I could turn it into a shaker card...just a thought ;-)

Thanks for stopping by.
