Mixing and Matching

_DSC0020

Hi everyone! It's Suzanne here today with a couple of cards that I made doing one of my favorite things: mixing and matching sets. Last night I sat down and put all my Neat and Tangled sets in front of me, trying to think of ideas and this is where my mind took me.

On my card above, I started with the gray cardstock and thought that the perfect way to cheer it up would be with a rainbow theme, so I stamped the chevron image from Little Tangles in a variety of rainbow colors, starting at the bottom of the card. Once I got to the top, I stamped the sentiment from Just Hello and added the ribbon and the bling.

And for my second card, I got a little more creative. I started by repeating the envelope from Just Hello in a pattern along the bottom panel of white cardstock, and once I got to the top of this card, I stamped one envelope in green, opting to turn this into a holiday card by adding the sentiment from Sweet Home and Santa hat from Hey Cookie. I added some glitter to the hat and mounted this onto some textured Bazzill cardstock.

That's all for today, but we hope to see you again very soon! Have a fun day!
