We're ending things with a bang today!  First up is Rachel: 




Ashley's cut files are gorgeous and go so well with Neat & Tangled stamps. I used Funky Florals  and cut a variety of flowers, focusing predominantly on the more solid images. Next, I pressed some Distress Inks onto my acyclic block, spritzed with water and smooshed the die cut shapes into the ink to create a faux watercolor look. 



I stamped the My Favorite sentiment on the right side of the card and heat embossed it in white. I arranged the flowers and leaves along the left side, giving the solid flowers a good coating of glitter.

And last, but not least Taheerah is sharing an ingenious use of cut files:



I used the Rosey Posey cut file and printed and foiled it on vellum using my Minc.  This was fussy cut and layered over a watercolored panel that I randomly stamped using the tiny heart from Gifts For You.  



The sentiment is from Everyday Labels, and for a bit of color and contrast I added a Birthday Bash sequin.

What a great week it has been!  We have so enjoyed working with The Cut Shoppe's files.  Don't forget to head over to their blog and leave comments on all the hop posts this week.  We'll be drawing a winner over the weekend!

Neat & Tangled / The Cut Shoppe Blog Hop - Day 4


Time flies!  It's already Day 4 of our week-long collaboration with The Cut Shoppe, an Etsy store which sells a variety of cut files (in SVG/PNG format) for use with electronic die cut machines.  

Each day this week we'll be featuring projects using The Cut Shoppe's files, and The Cut Shoppe team will be featuring projects using Neat & Tangled stamps on their blog.  Be sure to stop by each blog as there are giveaways!  The Cut Shoppe will be selecting one lucky commenter to win a $25 credit at the Neat & Tangled shop, and we'll be selecting one commenter from our blog to win a $20 credit for  The Cut Shoppe.  In addition, The Cut Shoppe is offering everyone a special discount this week.  Use code TCSNT30 for 30% off at the Cut Shoppe April 13-19.  

Mayuri here today to share a couple of cards for the Neat & Tangled collaboration with The Cut Shoppe and their awesome range of cut files. I made two cards, each using a different cut file and combining it with some Neat and Tangled stamps – here’s the first:

I began by layering a piece of pattern paper with a piece of vellum - I'd stamped the Time Warp image onto the vellum with Delicata Golden Glitz ink. To make the gold stand out a little more, I brushed over it with Gold Perfect Pearls and misted lightly with water to set.

The star cut file was die-cut on my Silhouette Cameo out of cardstock, spritzed with some bright Dylusions ink sprays and adhered to one side of the paper layers. I added a wood veneer embellishment for a bit of interest too.

The sentiment comes from Gifts for You and was stamped onto a scrap piece of pattern paper and heat embossed in gold. This was also adhered to the vellum along with a few sequins before foam mounting to the card base. Here's the second card:

I began by die-cutting the leaves on my Cameo out of some lightweight pearlescent paper and again spritzing with some Dylusions sprays. I heat set and then trimmed a section of this down to fit the front of a card, and adhered with dots of Glossy Accent

The sentiment comes from the Dala Horse stamp set and was heat embossed in white on black cardstock. I trimmed it down roughly and foam mounted to the card front.

I finished up with a scattering of sequins! Be sure to stop by the Cut Shoppe blog for more inspiration, and come back tomorrow for our grand finale!

I designed a card too:


I backed the Cut Shoppe's Funky Florals with green cardstock.   I love to use the Tiny Triangles Nice and Neat Die as a journal card.  It's fun to layer goodies on top of it.  The sentiment is from Dala Horse

Neat & Tangled / The Cut Shoppe Blog Hop - Day 2


It's Day 2 of our week-long collaboration with The Cut Shoppe, an Etsy store which sells a variety of cut files (in SVG/PNG format) for use with electronic die cut machines.  

Each day this week we'll be featuring projects using The Cut Shoppe's files, and The Cut Shoppe team will be featuring projects using Neat & Tangled stamps on their blog.  Be sure to stop by each blog as there are giveaways!  The Cut Shoppe will be selecting one lucky commenter to win a $25 credit at the Neat & Tangled shop, and we'll be selecting one commenter from our blog to win a $20 credit for  The Cut Shoppe.  In addition, The Cut Shoppe is offering everyone a special discount this week.  Use code TCSNT30 for 30% off at the Cut Shoppe April 13-19.  

Hey everyone!  Miriam here to share today.  I must confess that I have sorely neglected my Silhouette the last several months, so I was excited to dust it off and pull it out to create some cards.

We were able to select several files to use for this week's collaboration.  I really love background cut files, and one of the great things about the Cut Shoppe is that you get the backgrounds in both 12" x 12" and 8 1/2" x 11" formats.  The 8 1/2" x 11" is perfect to create card backgrounds.

I've got carried away and ended up with three projects to share today.



This first card features the Geometric Graffiti background.  I cut the background, and then leaving it intact on the cutting mat stamped the Origami Map image.  I then used ink blenders to apply a rainbow of colors to the design.

The map image was then stamped onto a card base.  Then I started removing the die cut triangles and adhering them to the card base by lining up the stamped images.



The sentiment was embossed on a black strip of cardstock and popped up over some bits of vellum and punchinella.



My second card uses the Hip2BSquare background.  Again I used the 8 1/2" x 11" version shrinking it down to A2 size.  Once it was cut, I removed the cut from the sheet leaving the negative pieces intact.

I used my detail scissors to snip out a frame/opening within the die cut.  I placed the altered die cut over my cardstock panel and lightly traced around the opening with a pencil.  Then I removed the die cut piece and stamped around the opening with the large solid flower image from Paper Cut Flowers using several colors of ink.  I also stamped a sentiment from Paper Cut Flowers.



The die cut piece was then adhered to the stamped panel.  For some extra interest, I removed some of the negative cuts and colored them using the ink pads I used for the stamping and then placed them into the die cut background.



My last card is very CAS.  The focus is the Hope Anchors stamp and Arrows with Attitude Background die cut.  I simple die cut the background and just tacked it down a bit on the card base.  

The sentiment was embossed on some vellum and the then stitched to the card base/die cut.  I didn't actually use any adhesive on the vellum as I wanted it to kind of float over the die cut piece.



A few Crystal Clear sequins finished it off.

OK, you definitely want to head over to the Cut Shoppe blog.  There are prizes to be won, all you need to do is leave comments on both blogs all week, so make sure you check in each day.

April Guest Designer: Yoonsun Hur

Hello crafty friends, TGIF! Yoonsun here again with my second guest project for April. Today, I want to show you my 2 cards with beautiful handwritten sentiment stamp sets. 

Here is my first card:
So Very Blessed! What an amazing word!! I love this stamp SO much!

For my first card today, I made my own pattern background with the small flowers from the set. 

1)I randomly stamped flowers on the purple cardstock using VersaMark Embossing ink and clear heat embossed
2)For the sentiment panel, I stamped this beautiful handwritten sentiment with VersaMark Embossing ink, gold heat embossed. I then used distress inks - Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold, Picked Raspberry- to add colour the around the sentiment
3)I mounted the sentiment panel on the card using dimensional foam tape
4)Machine stitches and some sequins were the finishing touches

And my second card:
I love Danielle's gorgeous handwritten sentiments, like this My Favorite stamp. Seriously! And YES! my dear crafty friends, you are my most favourite :D

Like the first card, I made my own pattern background with the small flowers from DalaHorse stamp set. 

1)I stamped the small flowers on the watercolour panel using grey pigment ink here and there. Once dry, I coloured the centre of the stamped panel with Peerless watercolours
2)For the sentiment, I stamped it with VersaMark Embossing ink, heat embossed with Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder and then fussy cut it
3)I mounted the stamped panel on the lime green cardstock first and then affixed the sentiment in the middle of the stamped panel using dimensional foam tape
4)Mixed enamel dots were the finishing touches

That’s it for today. Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!!

crafting wreath




Hello!  It's Amy T here with a one layer card!  I challenged myself to design a one layer card, I'm more of a layering girl.

Here it is:



Do you recognize the blooms?  They are from the new release set, Paris.


This is when I tell you that I'm easily distracted.  I had the best intentions of doing a tutorial of the technique I used but when I tried to take pictures with my phone, I had major malfunctions and had to step away from my craft room and get help from one of my kids.  When I returned, I went my merry way and finished stamping and coloring and then remembered I was suppose to take photos.

So here'a a quick photo of my overall technique:


The yellow circle is about 2 inches in diameter that I die cut from a sticky pad.  I stamped the cluster of blooms all the way around the circle without, of course, inking up the sticky note.  I wasn't really happy with my last image so I covered up the spot with the fussy cut bloom and spirals of beading cord.  I think that it's a nice POP to the wreath, how about you?

Yes, I can't seem to get enough of the Crafting is my Jam set:



I colored the blooms with various copics.

So, what do you think?

Are you a one layer or multi-layer crafter?
