{Neat & Tangled} October Release Week: Day 3


Hi, everyone! It's Day 3 of Neat & Tangled's October release and, today, the design team is featuring Warm Wishes. This big, beautiful sentiment, complete with a cute cup of coffee (soup or tea), is perfect for all your winter and holiday cards!


To create this card, I die cut the Tiny Triangles from watercolour cardstock. You'll be seeing more of this die on Friday. Then I stamped Winter Wishes on the die as well as on linen cardstock on the layer beneath. After watercolouring with Gansai paints, I adhered the two layers together.


I added shimmer to the tea cup with a Wink of Stella marker and embellished with sequins in colours that coordinate with the watercolours and patterned papers.


I channeled Jocelyn Olson and hand-cut two layers of patterned papers from We R Memory Keepers' It Factor 6x6 paper pad. On the base layer, I splattered Mister Huey's Color Mists in DesertCanyon and First Kiss before adhering the hand-cut layers with foam tape.


There's a GIVEAWAY! Be sure to comment on the Neat & Tangled Blog for your chance to win the Warm Wishes stamp set.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

{Neat & Tangled} October Release Week: Day 2


Hi, everyone! It's Day 2 of Neat & Tangled's October release and, today, the design team is featuring Little Santa Girl. Isn't she adorable?! Seriously, this is such a cute mini set. You need it. ;) The sentiment is composed of three words from the Very Merry stamp set which you'll be seeing more of on Friday.


I stamped the Little Santa Girl on white cardstock, coloured her with Copic markers and fussy cut her, leaving a small white border. Next, I stamped the three words on a strip of vellum and heat embossed them in rouge, white and charcoal. After trimming a panel of patterned paper and securing the sentiment strip at the back, I embellished with a couple of staples and popped the girl on with foam tape.
