Send some love with doily envelope and more

Hello dear friends!

St.Valentine's Day is over BUT love will never ends! Today I prepared for you two cards that I created especially to my beloved friends. I think that love-themed stamps/dies is a must have in every one's stash, because it's a great way to say "I love you" more often!

So let's start with the first card using newest super-duper Doily Envelope die. I used deep red Bazzil Basics cardstock for the semi-envelope (that in such way looks like a very beautiful wrap to my card) and a pale grey cardstock for the card.
I left some die-cuts uncleaned to add some interest and adhered a love word die-cut using Love notes die set in the center. For the card itself I used Love notes stamp set, so stamped words and die-cut one become the one phrase. Finally I closed my wrap with a rose twine.


The second card is in rose and black color combo that I like very much. I used Scalloped stencil with distress blending for my background and it turned out very tender and soft. Then I stamped focal point images from Perfect blend stamp set and used it as well for a sentiment that was heat embossed with white embossing powder on a black cardstock. I used foam adhesive for a sentiment to add little dimension to the one layer card and covered a coffee in cups with glossy accents.


I hope you enjoyed my cards today and if so I will be happy to read your kind comments!

Sending Love with Laurie Willison

Hey there! It's Laurie Willison here with another guest post for February. I have a quick and easy card using the set Love Notes along with the Love Notes Dies.



For the background, I inked up the little heart image and before stamping it, I misted it with a little water so each heart would have a little watercolored look. After that front panel was dry, I stamped the "sending" in black ink.

I die cut the love die in gold card stock and the back shadow in vellum....



And then I did one more of the love die in fun foam. This allowed me to adhere the love die on to the card front with some dimension....



I added in a few sequins to finish of the card....



This is my last card as the Neat and Tangled guest for February. I want to give say a big thanks to Danielle and Miriam for having me! Hope you have enjoyed my cards and thanks so much for stopping by!

Lucky Squirrels + Two-Color Heat Embossing Technique | VIDEO | Emily Leiphart


I'm so excited to present another Neat & Tangled video, this time featuring the So Lucky stamp set, paired up with the adorable squirrels from My Favorite Nut, which is now back in stock everywhere! The So Lucky stamp set is perfect for St. Patrick's Day but it's also perfect for every occasion honouring a loved one!




I created a mask to heat embossed the sentiment in two colours. I used Zing! embossing powders in Aqua and Leaf. I coloured the acorn gift in colours to match the embossed sentiment. The grass was added from the Lumberjack Love stamp set.

Celebrate with Stephanie


 Hey Neat & Tangled lovers! Steph here, and I have a super dimensional card for you today. :) I started by creating a background layer using the Scalloped Cover Plate Die. I left a couple of the rows on the top and bottom in tact (I didn't punch out the little pieces) to add a bit of a striped feel to them.

To create the centerpiece I started by stamping the Floral Heart and then die cutting it and coloring it in. I used TomBow Mono liquid glue to adhere the "celebrate" die cut sentiment to the inside of the heart and popped the whole thing up on double layered foam adhesive. 

 The only thing bad about this fun card is how many shadows it produces when photographing! Lol! I hope you like it and I'm looking forward to creating with you all again soon! Much love all!

Xo, Stephanie

Partial In-Laid Scalloped Plate with Daria

Hello Dears,

Daria here. How is day or morning?

I love the in-laid technique, and I think that our new Scalloped Cover Plate is just perfect for it.  The pieces are rather big and easy to puzzle in. Moreover, partial in-laid in different colors makes it more dynamic and gives endless possibilities for different looks.


I have decided to pair it with some of our older stamp sets: Paris Stamp Set, which is now on sale, yay :) I placed my sentiment on a banner shaped pieces, made with Scalloped Nice and Neat Dies.


Sequins are perfect to add some shiny finishing touches.
Hope you liked the partial in-laid technique and will give it a try :)

Hugs,
Daria.

Simply Missing You and Basic Card Making Tips

Hello Crafters! 

It's Kelly here and I'm super excited to share a personalized missing you card today. 

I think as card makers anything we make is usually with someone specific in mind. I really love the fact that anyone who receives a card from me was thought about from the start to the finish. When I saw the new Topography set I immediately thought of a way I could make more cards even more personal. 


I think most of us have friends near and far. Whether it's childhood friends who have moved away or friends we've met through this fantastic hobby. I thought adding in the outline of my own state to send to a friend whose moved away would be a cool way to let them know that the friends they left still missed them. On the flipside I think it would be cool to change up the sentiment and send the recipient a card with their own home on it. 

Since this card had minimal coloring I actually got to give a ton of other tips in this video I usually don't have time to talk about haha!
Check them out below


If that isnt the shortest video I've ever made it's a close second :) 
I am still in love with it though because because Black and White makes my heart go pitter patter when there's that POP of color. 


I love how the Topography set gives the card that gorgeous pattern but still makes sense with the design. This card came together so easy and I know whoever receives it will know that I'm sending some Ohio love :) 

Thanks for stopping by!

Cottontail Cuties | Nancy Damiano

Hi there, Nancy here today with a look at the Cottontail Cuties stamp and die set. I wanted to create a card that was light and airy with a punch of color. Something that would give me a feeling of the Spring season that I'm looking so very forward to!

@nancydamiano for Neat and Tangled Copic Cards

To create the soft background, I used the Scalloped Simply Stencil and Distress Ink in Word Lipstick and Spice Marmalade. I applied the same ink to the fringe on the right side to give the texture a pop of color. The Cottontail Cutie stamped images were colored in with Copic markers so that the bold color would offset the very pale background. A few Full of Love pink sequins completes the card.

@nancydamiano for Neat and Tangled Copic Cards

I love coloring and the Cottontail Cuties were really fun to work with! Thanks for stopping by the blog and here's to hoping that the Spring season arrives sooner rather than later.
