{Neat & Tangled} October Release Week: Day 5

Hi, everyone! It's Day 5 of Neat & Tangled's October release and, today, the design team is featuring the Very Merry stamp set and Tiny Triangles Die. I've already showcased the Very Merry stamp set with the Little Santa Girl on Tuesday's project, as well as the Tiny Triangles Die on Wednesday's project. All of these products are now available for purchase in the Neat & Tangled store!

I had so much fun creating this card. I die cut the Tiny Triangles Die four times and chopped up the three coloured panels. They are all glued down on to a whole die, in white, and popped off the card base which is covered with a patterned vellum panel.

I stamped the first line of the sentiment on to a strip of white cardstock. Then I heat embossed the second line in gold, on plain vellum. I adhered the top sentiment strip to the vellum panel and trimmed the entire piece to fit the card. After adhering the Little Santa Girl with foam tape, I die cut the Tiny Triangles Die from gold glimmer cardstock and randomly adhered triangles in the negative spaces.

There's a GIVEAWAY! Be sure to comment on the Neat & Tangled Blog for your chance to win the Very Merry stamp set and Tiny Triangles Die.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

{Paper Smooches} Scrapbooking & Cards Today Feature + Video!

This is my second post of the day.

Hello, everyone! Today, I'm delighted to be sharing a Paper Smooches Halloween project on the Scrapbooking & Cards Today Blog! I hope you'll pop over there to leave some love. Did I mention there's a giveaway? :)

I created this card using the Halloweenies stamp set and coordinating Halloweenies dies. I coloured the images with Copic markers and heat embossed the sentiment on a hill die cut with the Quotables dies. The buildings in the background are from the Super 2 dies.

I finished the card with glossy accents on all the eyes. Apparently, I don't do this often enough since my son asked what was on their eyes and was hesitant to touch it. LOL! I do like how they give the illusion of googly eyes while preserving the original illustrations.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
