Neat & Tangled / My Sweet Petunia Bonus Post!

Hey everyone!  We've got a special treat today, a bonus card and video to share today from Iliana over at My Sweet Petunia.

I hope you all have been enjoying our week.  Neat and Tangled really pampered me, providing with their wonderful stamp sets.  Due to the weather my package was a little late.  So I just completed this card in hopes of participated at the end.


I created the background using the Clouds stamp set and a lot of masking.  The sentiment from that same set was stamped on the cloud on the Just Thinking of You stamp set.  

This card is a great reminder to me that when things are tough that there is always something good hiding in it.  Sometimes, I focus on the dark and not the light.  It is so easy to get wrapped up in the trouble and forget to look around at all the people that lift you up in encouragement.

Neat and Tangled has been a great example of that silver lining.  They did an awesome job this week with their talented design team.  Especially, Miriam Prantner that orchestrated this whole collaboration.  Thank you Neat and Tangled.

Please enjoy this video.



Thanks to Iliana!  It really was our pleasure to team up with My Sweet Petunia, and I think it showed in the projects and videos this week!  Don't forget that you have until the end of the day to leave comments here and at the My Sweet Petunia blog to be in the running for the prizes - $100 to the N&T store and a MISTI!

  20. This was a fun set to see used in a new way on a card, as every set has been this week. It has been fun seeing how the Neat and Tangled stamps sets, which are already well thought out, become even more useful when paired with the MISTI. Thank you for the fun weekď

  31. Love how easy the MISTI makes all the masking work out perfectly!! I usually have so much trouble with it, and it takes me forever. I have to get my hands on one somehow! And one of the embellishment tools! I'm forever dropping those things!!

  38. Such a great card and the sentiment is something I need to keep in mind--I agree with you that it's so easy to focus on the negative! What a great tip in the video about using the repositionable labels for masking! The MISTI looks like a great helper :)

  42. Great looking card! Love the background!

  43. Like I said on the other site I really liked the card and the sentiment is great.It's also so true. When the day is crappy, the silver lining is tomorrow will be better. I always feel that way. It's raining and its gray and cloudy out. Depressing, right? Tomorrow will be nice and sunny out and if it's not, then the next day. This looks like the kind of card I would make. I even have a tiny cloud punch that someone at a craft fair that I was doing just gave to me! Those tiny clouds would be cute on here, and if it was up to me, the clouds would be different colors, so I would make them that way. Can't you just see sunny, yellow clouds? Orange and green ones too! I may have to do a card just like that! I can use your sentiment even though I don't have the stamp. All my clouds will have silver linings. I'm going to save your card so I can make one kind of like it. I hope you don't mind.
