A Friend Like You with Koren Wiskman


Hello everyone, Koren here with a vibrant card today, featuring several of Neat & Tangled's products. This card really pops and it's a fun way to use your floral stamps without coloring them.

Background:
I started with two pieces of cardstock both cut to 4 3/4 by 3 1/2. I used the pink and teal colors from the Neat & Tangled Cardstock Assortment Pack.  I loaded one panel at a time into my Mini MISTI with the largest floral stamp, from Neat & Tangled's Grateful Heart stamp set, aligned within it. I stamped it twice, once on the pink panel and again on the teal panel, both in the exact same spot.

I took the teal panel and the Neat & Tangled Butterfly Beauties Die, and aligned the die to be cut towards the upper right center of the teal panel. Once the butterfly was cut into the teal panel I adhered a piece of Judikins Heat Embossable Window Plastic directly behind the panel with Nuvo Liquid Deluxe adhesive.

To create the window pocket for the sequins to live in, I added thin strips of foam adhesive all along the body of the butterfly. Doing this helps the sequins stay within the confines of the window where you can see them. I added the same adhesive to the rest of the panel.


The sequins used on this card are from Simon Says Stamp. They are called Flowering Clover and have beautiful tones of pink and greens to go well with this cards color palette. Once the sequins were added I stuck the pink panel to the back to enclose all of my beautiful sequins.

Sentiment:
To create the cluster of sentiments I have arranged here on my card, I took the hot pink color cardstock from the Neat & Tangled Cardstock Assortment Pack and stamped "a friend like" and "is rare" both from the Neat & Tangled Moon Magic stamp set. I stamped it with Nuvo Clear Mark embossing ink and heat embossed it with Simon Says Stamp white embossing powder. I then used my paper trimmer to cut it down into small strips. This is actually all one sentiment but I masked the parts of the sentiment that I didn't want to stamp with a short piece of tape (or you can even use scrap paper to mask it).

The "you" word die is from Neat & Tangled's Just because word die set. I cut is using several of the same colors already used on the card plus one very bright green that I pulled from my stash. If you look closely, you can see different color layers in the side of the word die.


The strips were popped up using foam tape and the word die was adhered using liquid adhesive. To finish off the card I used a few of the Flowering Clover sequins on the outside of the shaker pocket surrounding the sentiments.

I hope that I have inspired you to create something today.

Koren
