Neat and Tangled 3rd Birthday Blog Hop Day 5!

Hi friends! 

It is the 5th and final day of our weeklong Birthday Blog Hop! We've been having so much fun! I am so glad you are enjoying all our guest, the giveaways, and fun!  If you missed the first day of our hop, head over HERE, day 2 is HERE,  day 3 is HERE,  and day 4 HERE.

Amy is kicking off today's festivities!
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ 

Hey, it's Amy T here with a couple cards using the NEW Heart of Gold stamps and coordinating Nice & Neat Die.  

First up is a super clean & crisp design.  The Heart of Gold has been stamped with Ranger Archival Black ink and then watercolored:



The label happened to match perfectly, the sentiment is from the Life is Beautiful set.

My second card makes my gold loving heart happy:




The NEW Heart of Gold Nice and Neat die is WONDERFUL...I ran it through fairly thick glitter cardstock so instead of running it through again, I left it so that the pieces were intact.  I managed to do some minimal folding so that in real life, there is tons of 'movement' in that piece!

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ 

Your next stop on the hop is Yoonsun Hur!

And today's full hop order:
Neat and Tangled Blog(you are here)

Thank you all SO MUCH for helping us celebrate Neat and Tangled's birthday!  Your excitement was  beyond my wildest dreams!  I hope you were inspired!

Have a great weekend!

Birthday Blog Hop giveaway winners will be announced tomorrow!
