Fairy best friends with Elena

Hi there!

Elena here, with a sweet friendship card using images from To The Stars, from our newest release.

I did the softest ink blended sky using Lawn Fawn's Mermaid ink and an oval makeup brush. Honestly, those brushes make it too easy! It's foolproof.

Then, I flicked some white paint onto the sky, to give it a dreamier quality before laying in the clouds and fairies.

I gave the girls matching hair colors and outfits, and finished off the card with a sentiment from So Many Sentiments.

I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!

Partial Die Cut Window Card With Carissa Wiley

Hey everyone! It's Carissa Wiley here for Neat & Tangled! Today I’m sharing a window card, featuring a partial die cut element. This is a fun way to suspend a stamped image in the window of a card.


I’ll be using the brand new To The Stars stamps and dies and the Dream Big stamp set from Neat & Tangled’s April release. I adore this image of the little girl and the sleeping bunny on the moon. It would make a fabulous baby card.


I’ll be showing you how to create the partial die cut element in today’s video tutorial. The partial die cut allows the stamped and die cut image to stay attached to the window. It’s a fun effect and can be done with many different stamp and die combos.

April Guest Designer Natasha Valkovskaya

Today I have two cards featuring some of my absolute N&T favorites: Warm Winter Scene cover plate die, Mail Background stamp, Heart Duo stencil and Typed Sentiments.

For my first card, I die cut the Warm Winter Scene from a piece of white cardstock, and trimmed off the bottom row of the houses. These are the cutest houses ever, don’t you think? It’s a winter scene die, but it can be used all year round for so many occasions! I saved the houses for later, as for this card I only needed the negative.

Then I stamped the Mail background stamp on an A2 size panel, and used my distress inks to tone part of the panel that will be covered by the die-cut.  That’s pretty much it. I foam mounted my row of houses and added the sentiment. It’s from Lovely Lotus set and seemed perfect for this card. My second card is again clean and simple. I created the background with the Heart Duo stencil and some distress inks in rainbow colors… of course!

I used the houses I had die-cut for the first card, and adhered them onto foam squares. For the sentiment I used the Typed Sentiments set which is definitely a must-have! So many great sentiments in typewriter font which looks so cool and will fit any style!

Thank you for spending time with me! I hope you like my ideas and are inspired to get crafty! Have a great day and find time for something that makes you happy!
