Watercolor Birthday Balloons

Hello there, Joni here sharing a watercolor project that you can use with any stamp set that you have. Sometimes we need a quick Birthday card and sentiments sometimes can help with that.....hehehe especially Neat & Tangled sentiments Photo Booth :)

To begin my card I first drew my circles using pencil and then stamped the sentiments from Photo Booth using Versamark ink then gold heat embossed the sentiments.

Next, I watercolored the inside of the balloons with distress ink smooshing it on the acrylic block. Then use the water brush, fill in the colors, and let it dry. Once its all dry I then erase the pencil mark. Then I drew the balloon strings using the Distress Markers in Crushed Olive, Worn Lipstick, and Wild Honey.

To finish off the card I added some watercolor splatter using the remaining ink on the acrylic block let it dry and the Birthday card is done :)

Here's the full image of the card.

I hope you enjoyed!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a Wonderful Labor Day :)


Some days I like it CAS...

... actually, that's most days. Hey!! Kristen here. I'm definitely more of a clean and simple girl when it comes to cardmaking. So I'll be showing you a card I made using one stamp set from Neat and Tangled! I used the stamp set Photo Booth to create this easy card!

I've reached for this set a few times and it never fails me! It's a fun and happy set! I started off stamping the photo strip onto some white cardstock. With colors I felt worked well together (I actually think I've used the same colors with the same stamp set before... oops!) I stamped different images into the blocks.  I then stamped the sentiment in black ink. To finish off the card, I added it to a piece of lime green cardstock and scattered a few sequins. I'm so happy with how it turned out! :)

Well, that's about it for me today. Thanks for stopping by the blog and be on the lookout! There's an awesome release coming soon!!


Sequin Storage!

Hello friends! Since so many of you are sequin addicts users I thought it might be neat for you to see how some of the design team members store their sequins!

Amy Tsuruta
I picked up storage from the jewelry section at my local Michael's store.  I wanted my storage to be portable and I like the idea that each container is removable.  It was super easy to make the labels using clear stickers and coordinating template.

Anna Kossakovskaya
I storage my sequins in plastic containers with color labels

Yana Smakula
I store my sequins in small plastic jars, which all sit on my table in small drawers. Whenever I need to use them, I just pull the entire drawer out and place it next to my work area. All jars are placed upside down (the lids and not see-though) so that I can see which color is which. I also store them sorted by color - so first I have my clear and white, than yellow, orange and so on.

If I can, I pull the label off the packaging and place it on the jar, if not - I just use a permanent black marker and label it that way. I want to add printed labels, but I never seem to have the time to do that.

This way of storing sequins seems to work well for me. The colors don't mix, everything stays nice and organized.

So now I'll ask you, how do you store your sequins? Send me photo at danielle@neatandtangled.com so I can share with our readers!


Every Cloud Has a Silver Lining

Hi everyone! It's Jocelyn on the blog today.

I made a little card using the Clouds set:

Every Cloud

It's pretty unusual for me to use a rainbow color scheme, but I thought the good ole' Roy G. Biv worked perfectly with the clouds and sentiment.  I also stamped the clouds on some vellum. If you look closely, you can see the letters on the vellum.

Every Cloud

The sentiment is also from the Clouds set. After I stitched through the layers, I added some embellishments, including the White Punchinella. Love that stuff! The white is sold out right now, but when it's restocked, you've got to snatch it up.

Every Cloud

I also added some Crystal Clear and Pink Lemonade sequins and the fun flair. I thought this card would bring some cheer to someone. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

August Guest Designer: Cristina Kowalczyk!

Yay for Friday! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! To get it started our August guest designer, Cristina Kowalczyk, is back with three fun projects.
t's my last week as a guest designer here, and today I challenged myself to one of my favorite things – seeing how far I could stretch one little stamp set. In this case, Thankful Turkey

First up, I made a tag. I stamped the turkey in the middle of some cardstock and then trimmed around him so that his tail would stick out off the edge. I colored him with Copics, added some patterned paper along the bottom, and attached the ribbon with a staple. The Tiny Attacher is getting a lot of action over my house lately. :)

For the second card, I trimmed out the word "thankful" and then added some scraps. I love looking at my sentiments that way. Remember that you don't have to use the whole stamp. Taking out only part of it give you so many more options. 

And lastly, I used the sentiment it its entirety, but added a few supporting images from You + Me. A simple circle and some solid leaf shapes never looked so good. :) 

A million thanks to Danielle, once again, for letting me play around with her amazing stamps this month! Hope you all found a bit of inspiration!
