February Guest Designer: Chari Moss

Hello friends!

Today we have another card from our February guest designer, Chari Moss.

I love how she combined Falling Hearts and the sentiment from Paper Cut Flowers to create a fun shaker card! I see those Full of Love sequins peeking out from the vellum ;)

Thank you so much, Chari!

If you don't follow us on Instagram yet be sure to head over and start! We will be doing Friday Flash Sales periodically and the first one will be today at 9am EST!

Have a great weekend everyone!


Bright Warm Wishes

Hey everybody! Happy Thursday! It's Taheerah here with you today to share a card!

I've so been longing for Spring and Summer, and I'm sure I'm not alone! I am so sick of this weather and just wish I could have a big warm hug to chase it away! In the meantime though I thought I'd create the equivalent in card form - a bright, warm hug, courtesy of the Warm Wishes set!

Here's what I came up with:

I love how this turned out!

I started with a piece of patterned acetate and stamped the Warm Wishes stamp on it using Versafine ink. I then coated with black embossing powder and embossed the image to really make it pop!

Some fun layering of patterned papers and a splattered card base and I feel more cheery already!

I hope this card brought some fun to your day! Thanks for stopping by!


Simple Birthday Card

Hi everyone! Yana is here sharing a Birthday Card idea. I needed to create several simple Birthday Cards last week so I reached for my all time favorite set from Neat & Tangled; 15 minutes later I had this simple unisex card design on hand. 

These balloons images are just the cutest! I used two shades of yellow ink and stamped them repeatedly on a white A2 card. I overlapped some of them and tried to make it look like they were floating in the air. 

For my sentiment I used the Everyday Labels set and stamped Happy Birthday in black, cut out with my scissors leaving a small white border and adhered those onto my card using foam adhesive. 

To tie the black sentiment with the rest of the card I also stamped several black starts and various sizes. As a one final touch I adhered several sequins. 

You can easily turn this into a girly card by stamping balloons ink pink or a boy card by stamping them in blue. Here's a link to another Birthday Card I shared on Neat & Tangled blog several month ago using the same balloons. 


One Layer Card Idea from May

Hi there!! It's May here! Today I'd like to share one layer cards that I made inspired by the shamrock, a traditional symbol of St. Patrick's Day.

I used 4 different size of heart stamps to create my own flower image from Jumpstart My Heart, Photo Booth, and Falling Hearts. I started by stamping the larger heart image 4 times, then I moved on stamping smaller hearts to give my flower more depth in different colors. Next, I stamped the tiny heart here and there to fill in the gap. After that, I finished off the card with the sentiment from Kindness Matters

I made another card using same theme but different colors. Which card do you like the most? Green or pink? Well, that’s all I have today. Hope you loved my cards and got some inspiration. Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy crafting!

Mayuri and Rachel are finishing the week up for us.

Hey there, Mayuri here to share a couple of cards for the collaboration with Cosmo Cricket and their absolutely amazing Just Add Watercolor line of paper. I made two cards, each using a different watercolouring technique - here’s the first, using Distress Inks:

I trimmed down a piece of the watercolour paper to slightly smaller than my card front and used one of my favourite Distress Ink Techniques. I smushed down a few inks straight onto a craft mat, spritzed with water and laid the panel into the inky puddles. I heat set and repeated until I got the desired effect.

On a piece of vellum, I stamped My Favorite with Versamark Ink, sprinkled with WOW Metallic Gold Rich Pale embossing power and heat embossed. This piece was adhered to the watercolour panel before foam mounting to a white card base. To finish, I added some sequins. For my second card, I used my Gansai Tambi Watercolour Paint set:

I used the A Lot To Say die to die-cut a panel out of the watercolour paper and spritzed with water. Then I picked up various colours from the paint set with a brush and started adding colour randomly, allowing the water to do most of the work.

I heat set the speech bubble die-cut and stamped a sentiment from All My Heart with black dye ink. Using Simon Says Stamp Fog ink, I stamped the Punchinella background at a slight angle onto a white card base - this is just the right shade of grey to offset against the colourful die-cut piece, which was foam mounted to the card front. Again, I finished with a few sequins.

Hey! It's Rachel, thanks so much for stopping by today to check out these Cosmo Cricket + Neat & Tangled projects. This week has been amazing, right? The Just Add Water line is amazing for all of us watercolor fanatics - it was so much fun to work with.

For my cards, I chose one of the floral designs and did some very basic watercoloring. The paper is so forgiving - I was using my 3 year old's watercolors and still got good results! I went with a pastel palette - not my typical choice, but fun to push your boundaries, right?

I started by watercoloring the entire sheet of paper and then die cut the chevron pattern, adhering the outline cut to a kraft card base.  I then cut a rectangle from vellum and head embossed the sentiment and hearts from Kindness Matters, before stitching it all in place.  I finished off the card with a sprinkling of sequins, but wanted to keep things really simple!

I had to come up with something for the scraps as well - so I did some simple circle punching for this next card. 

The sentiment is from Paper Cut Flowers - it is getting a lot of the ink in my craft room!  I finished this card off with some washi tape and gold enamel dots.  Again, nothing too complicated here - wanted to let that gorgeous paper take the spotlight!

Thanks for all the wonderful comments this week, we really enjoyed working with Cosmo Cricket and want to send them a huge thanks for the beautiful products that they shared with us!  We'll be closing comments this evening and announcing a winner over the weekend, so make sure you check out all the posts from this week.
