Neat + Tangled – Go Wild

Hello! I’m sharing another card featuring the Neat and Tangled Wild Ones set. (I shared one here as part of Neat and Tangled’s 5th birthday.)

Neat and Tangled Wild Ones

I used the smooshing method to add Distress Oxide Orange Marmalade ink to Canson watercolor paper. Once dry, I stamped the giraffe image. I then added color for the spots, nose, ears, and mane with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors. I also used the smooshing technique on the background with Distress Oxide Broken China ink. The grass, on which I stamped the sentiment from the set, was colored with Mowed Lawn Distress ink and cut with the Lawn Fawn Grassy Border die. I dry-embossed the background with a Sizzix woodgrain embossing folder.

Neat & Tangled Documenting the Holidays

I’m over on the Neat & Tangled blog today sharing my Holiday Memories Album project. I created a variety of  3” x 4” filler cards for my Holiday pocket-page album with Neat and Tangled stamp sets. For my album, I’m using the Simple Stories SN@P! binder with their photo protector inserts, along with patterned papers from Echo Park’s ‘Tis the Season.

Neat & Tangled November Release Warm Wishes

Today, Neat and Tangled is releasing the digital stamp “Warm Wishes.” It’s perfect for the holiday season!

NovReleaseDay5DigiJM

I used the digital stamp in two ways. I created the sentiment rectangle by printing the stamp as white on a black fill layer. Next, I created a background paper with a repeating pattern of the mug part of the stamp. Once printed, I combined those two papers with a patterned paper banner and baker’s twine on a dry-embossed card base. This card would be easy to create in different colors! I think I need to go drink some cocoa and put on holiday tunes!

Head on over to the Neat & Tangled Blog to see the rest of the Design Team projects and get details about this digital stamp. The November release stamp sets are on sale today, November 22.

For my card, I heat embossed the set’s “You Are Awesome” sentiment to add to a Webster’s Pages Mini Bag in which I’ve placed a gift card. I finished it with a Webster’s Pages speech bubble paperclip.

Neat & Tangled Leaf Storm

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” -Albert Camus

The changing of the colors and the falling of the leaves creates a beautiful picture in the autumn season. I wanted to depict that scene on a card  and used several stamps from the Neat & Tangled Simple Christmas set. Please head on over to the Neat & Tangled blog to see my card.
