Neat & Tangled / Et Cetera Papers Collaboration - Day 1

Hi Friends!  We're teaming up with Et Cetera Papers today through Thursday.  Et Cetera Papers produces specialty real wood papers and products, and we'll be showing those off for the next several days.

The Et Cetera Papers team will also be working with our products, so you'll want to stop by their blog as well.  At the end of the week we'll be drawing a winner from comments on our collaboration posts for prizes.  We'll be drawing a winner here on the Neat & Tangled blog for the $25 prize pack you see below (which consists of adhesive backed real wood cherry and birch veneer papers and as well as real wood envelopes), and Et Cetera papers will be drawing a winner for a $25 Neat & Tangled store credit.

OK, let's take a look at today's projects.  First up is Daria:

Hi everyone, Daria here! Happy to join this fun collaboration with Et Cetera Papers.


Self-adhesive sheets are very easy to use and ideal for all kind of die-cutting.  Before die-cutting, I glued it to some foam sheets and then to stick it adhesive sheets. It made it very easy and fast to assemble adding a little bit of fun dimension.


I went with simple, yet elegant no-stamping cards. I used some of my favorite dies from Neat & Tangled: Punchinella and Celebrate Dies for one card and intricate Hooray die for the second. All of them cut just perfectly.


For my today's cards I used Rustic Cherry Wood adhesive sheets from Et Cetera Papers.
I think it pairs perfectly with light blue cardstock. Variation in color in wood pattern looks awesome in real life and adds so much to the design.


Next up is Stephanie:



Hey friends! Stephanie Gold here with a little project in collaboration with Etc. Papers! I am working with these incredible Cherry wood veneer envelope and tape sets and oh my are they pretty!! Since they are perfectly coordinated already, I decided to make them even more so by creating a matching card and envelope.


I started by placing the tape on a diagonal and then using the Tiny Cuts dies to cut dashes in between each wood stripe. I whipped out a couple of older stamp sets to create the focal point of my card. Ornate Frames stamps and dies were used to create the hollow frame and my sentiment was created using Painted Hello.


I wrapped a vibrant green hemp cord on the diagonal and tied it into a bow. The wood tape looks so beautiful next to the bright colors of the ink and twine.


For my envelope I used a pink shipping tag and stamped one of the hollow Ornate Frames and adhered it to the center. I wrapped more of the green hemp cord around the envelope, tied it into a bow, but also secured it to the envelope using a Tiny Attacher. This helps keep it in place while in transit. :)



That's all for today, be sure to leave a comment here and stop by the Et Cetera Papers blog as well.  We'll be back tomorrow with some more beautiful collaboration projects to share. See you then!
