Backdrop Stamping

Hello there!

Mayuri here to share a card using some of the newest stamp and die sets;-)

©Candles in the Garden. Neat and Tangled October 2017 - Backdrop Stamp and  Falling Circles Coverplate

For this card, I used the Backdrop stamp, which at first may seem deceptively simple, but actually packs quite a punch.

I began by stamping the Backdrop image repeatedly across a panel of white cardstock, using a range of different coloured inks. I wanted to create a rainbow effect but wasn't sure what would happen to each impression as it overlapped the last.

I was quite surprised with the results and almost didn't want to cover all that stamping up, but I then ran the panel through my die-cutting machine with the Falling Circles Coverplate.

I then simply foam mounted the stamped and die-cut panel to a white card base and moved onto the sentiment, which comes from the Hello Winter set. I chose one of the simple sentiments from the set and heat embossed it in white on a strip of black cardstock.

I foam mounted the sentiment to the card front and finished off with some sequins.

Thanks for stopping by!

Watercoloured Striped Llama with Debby Hughes


Hi, it's Debby here today. This card came together while looking at the 'soft socks' sentiment in the Hello Winter set and the scarf of the Fa La Llama. I began thinking of soft woollen scarves and socks, and I do love a lovely striped woollen!


I stamped the sentiment block from the Hello Winter set three times in clear embossing ink down a panel of Hot Pressed watercolour card and white heat embossed


I then roughly watercoloured stripes across and let the heat embossing resist the paint. When dry I splattered with a solution of Perfect Pearls


I also stamped the llama from Fa La Llama in Versafine Onyx Black ink and watercoloured the scarf and blanket in the same colours as the striped background before die cutting with the matching dies


The sentiment is from Merry Kisses, and I thought it went really well with the warm woolly feeling I was going for with this card. I stamped the sentiment in clear embossing ink on black card and white heat embossed before trimming into two banners. 



I also die cut a circle from ivory card and then it was time to put this card together. 


I added all the elements with foam adhesive to a card base cut from ivory card and then accented with sequins. 

Thanks for joining me today and I'll see you next time!

Christmas Wreath with Yoonsun


Happy Friday all!  We are glad to be welcoming our guest designer, Yoonsun Hur, back to the blog today, but sad that this is her last post for us this month.  It's been a pleasure and today's card will definitely make you smile!  Here's Yoonsun:

Hello crafty friends, TGIF! It’s Yoonsun here and I am back with my last card as a guest designer with Neat & Tangled this month. Time really flies!!

For my card today, I used the adorable Beary Merry & Into the Woods stamp sets. I love these cute sets so much!!




I created my own Christmas wreath using these two sets. First I placed a circle die on an A2 sized watercolour paper panel, traced a circle very lightly with a pencil. I then stamped leaves from the Into the Woods set along the circle line with black pigment ink. I coloured the stamped leaves with Mowed Lawn & Peacock Feathers Distress inks and water brush. Next, I stamped acorns, ginger bread, candy canes on a separate watercolour paper with black pigment ink, watercoloured them with Distress markers, and then fussy cut them. 



I stamped the sentiment and other cute images from the Beary Merry set under the wreath image using black pigment ink, watercoloured the images with Distress markers as well. Once the panel was dry, I mounted the panel on white care base using double-sided tape first, and then decorated the wreath with the acorns, ginger bread, candy canes using foam tape.  



Thank you so much once again for inviting me to be this month guest designer. I really hope you guys like my Christmas cards. Have a wonderful weekend!!

Tis the Season Hooray with Keeway

Hooray! Tis the season of holiday crafting, my favorite time of year! It's Keeway on the blog today for a little holiday inspiration. Every time a new holiday releases come out, I love to see how they pair with prior year's releases, and without a doubt, the pairing is just absolutely full of cuteness! Today's card features an array of awesome stuff, including Get Yeti, Santa's Wonderland, and Hooray.

I always enjoy starting my projects by stamping and coloring my images. I was really focused on using a lot of strong reds in all my characters. All my images were colored with copic markers and with a little extra detailing with a white gel pen. I then die cut each of them with coordinating dies.

I used a black vertical striped pattern paper for background which added a nice modern look to the design of my card. The signature Neat & Tangled word dies with the bold outlines really helps the sentiment stand out even with such a strong pattern background. I used the Hooray word die with black cardstock for the outline, and white cardstock for the inside word.

To add a little holiday flavor to the sentiment, I reached for the 'tis the season!' words from the Santa's Wonderland stamp set. I heat embossed it onto red cardstock and cut out a fishtail banner freehand with some precision scissors. I adhered the 'hooray' directly onto the background, and all the other pieces with foam tape. And that finishes my project for today. Until next time!

Festive Fa La Llama with Cheiron

Hi there! It's Cheiron here and I have a festive llama card for you today created with the Fa La Llama stamps and dies.  If you know me, you know I love Christmas cards in anything but the traditional colors of green and red. To make my card, I inked up a panel with Distress Oxides in Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet, then spritzed it with water to create a fun sky effect. When the ink was dry, I stamped and embossed the sentiment in white.  The llama was colored with Copics and die cut.


To complete my card and give it a bunch of holiday sparkle and shine, I added some sequins from the Jewel Tones Sequins Mix, mounted my card panel on a white panel, then onto a gold glitter paper panel for even more sparkle! I hope you liked this card, and I hope it will inspire you to try some non-traditional colors on your holiday cards.

Peerless Watercolors with Kelly Latevola

Hello Crafters! 

It's Kelly here and today we are embracing the season! 

One of the benefits of living in Ohio is hands down that we have four distinct seasons. 
This means when Autumn comes there's so much gorgeous foliage everywhere you can hardly get anywhere on time because you're always just staring at it. 

Or it could be because I have 3 jobs and a 4 year old child. 
Let's blame the beautiful leaves shall we?  


If you look closely at the painted panel you'll notice that the background isn't actually white. 
I'm in love with the Rice Paddies Stencil and I can't stop putting it on everything. 
Because of my obsession I didn't realize that they are actually sold out in the shop. 
I'm Sorry! 
They'll be back soon! 
In the meantime if you would like to try this technique we have a ton of really great stencils in the store that would look amazing too! You can see them all here


Along with the stenciling I did some heat embossing so I could use those beautiful Autumn colors to watercolor with! 
You can watch the card come together in the video below 


Any watercolor medium will work with this technique. I just love those Peerless colors because they are so highly pigmented the colors are very intense. 
You know I love me some bright colors! 


Even though there's brights color everywhere my favorite part is actually the sentiment. 
I hope you find a little bit of kindness in your day today :)

Thanks for visiting!
