Sequin Crazy!

Hey everybody! Happy Friday! It's Taheerah here with a card to kick off your weekend!

Do you know how awesome Neat & Tangled sequins are? Very awesome, that's how awesome! Danielle started this trend way back when we were all thinking 'Sequins? On a card? Instead of rhinestons? What?'

I don't think I've used a single rhinestone on a card since. Heh.

So for my card today I wanted to celebrate all things sequin! And what better way to do that with a fun shaker card?!


I love how this turned out!!


I wanted to create a super-fun sequin background to start with, so I used the sequin stamp from Photo Booth to do just that! I went with a more masculine colour scheme because, well, why not?!


I then had loads of fun picking out which colour sequins to use! There are so many I'm pretty much spoilt for choice! I opted for colours that closely matched my colour palette, and complimented those with stamped sentiment circles from Everyday Circles - kinda like giant sequins in themselves!


I sandwiched all my sequins and sentiments with a sheet of acetate to create the fun, full-card window! I adhered that to my base and added some hand-drawn faux stitching and I was all done!

I hope this card brought some sunshine to your day! Thanks for stopping by!

Say Cheese!


Hi Neat & Tangled friends!
Amy Kolling here with a bittersweet post because it's my LAST post as part of the original DT.  Danielle has expanded her team and it's time for my style to go!  I have really enjoyed this team and am so grateful to Danielle for letting me design with her stamps.  

Did you see the fabulous new release of stamps last week?  If not, scroll back through the posts from last week!  The new DT has outdone themselves!!!

I created my card with the new set called Photo Booth.  I just love all the itty bitty images that are included in this set which are perfectly sized to fit in the photo strip stamp from the set.  But here, I've used the little camera stamp to stamp my own background paper.  Just goes to show how you can use all those smaller images in way that really shows them off!

Say Cheese2


Since this is my last post, I wanted to share a few of my favorite NAT cards I've made during my term.  Hope you enjoy and have a great summer!!!

So Very Blessed!


Hello Everyone...have you seen the new releases for Neat & Tangled this month of May? They are AWESOME if you have not seen it yet. Just click HERE to go the new released. Today I am showcasing the new release stamp set "SO VERY BLESSED" Danielle created this beauty! Oh just love this sentiment...perfect for many occasion. 

1.To begin my card, I first created my card base then only distress half way using Distress ink pad in Picked Raspberry and splatter it with Studio Calico mists in Shine.
2. I then stamped the sentiment first on a separate white cardstock. I just masked the flower and the laurels first with washi before stamping. If you are brave enough you can just separate the sentiment with sharp scissors, which will be okay to stamp without any problem it will still perfectly stamped the same, which I might need to do *wink*.
3. Next, I then stamped the laurels and flowers in different color inks by masking the images with washi tape before stamping on my panel.
4. Once all the images are complete, then fussy cut my created wreath image and adhere it with foam dots to finish off the card.


Here is the full look of the card.

I hope you enjoyed!

Thank you so much visiting!
Have a Gorgeous Day :)



SO VERY BLESSED

Big News + Happy Everything

Hello friends! Danielle here with some exciting news and a fun card :)

I haven't really mentioned anything publicly, if you follow on Instagram you may have seen a picture a little while ago, but I am expecting with our third child. We are very excited and we are very close to my due date!  Here is a photo we snapped yesterday, I tend to forget to get pictures of myself during pregnancy, so I'm glad we got this one before it was too late!

Now for a card! I really love the new Photo Booth set so I inked it up!  I stamped the photo strip in black and then used some Copics to color the light aqua background.  I stamped the heart image from the set in red ink, covered in Glossy Accents and sprinkled with Distress glitter. I used a stencil with some embossing paste on the card base, and then adhered my photo strip with some foam dots. Ta-da!

May Guest Designer: Debby Hughes!


*Sniff sniff* Today is our last post from May guest designer, Debby Hughes. It has been such a joy to have her join us! And boy does she have one amazing card for you today! Be sure to leave her some love!
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ 
Hi, Debby here and boy is this Neat & Tangled blog buzzing with all the new release! Such a treat for the eyes! Well, as a little break in service from all the new gorgeousness, my last guest post for the month using the previously released, but still so fabulous, You + Me set :) Such a great clean and graphic set and yet I wanted to continue my current love of water colouring and go soft and loose. Firstly I clear heat embossed the little line heart image onto watercolor card and then inked the solid image from the set with Distress Ink, spritzed well with water and stamped over the heart. For the sentiment is heat embossed in the gloriously glittery platinum sparkle embossing powder.
To embellish I squeezed a few puddles of platinum glitter glue here and there, a sprinkling of sequins and a little white thread behind the sentiment. I'd like to thank Danielle for inviting me over to N&T, I've had a ball! 
Supplies: Stamps - Neat & Tangled you + me; Ink - Versamark, Distress Ink worn lipstick; Card - Tim Holtz distress watercolor card, Simon Says Stamp fog; Embossing Powder Wow platinum sparkle; Ranger platinum glitter glue; Sequins; White Thread
