Fun Spring Scene with Kay

Hi there!

I am finally getting over the winter and Christmas stuff and wanting to jump into spring! I have a card to share with you today that I actually used a winter product, but made a spring card! I absolutely loved the Warm Winter Scene Cover Plate when it came out, and used it several times for my winter and Christmas cards. It's one of my favorites, so I wanted to be able to use it for other types of cards too. I paired it up with the new Many Sentiments stamp set and some bright colors for a fun springy card!



I used plain white card stock for the whole card and all of the die cuts. I cut the houses out with the Warm Winter Scene Cover Plate and blended distress ink onto them for the color. I glued some yellow card stock pieces behind them to show through for the windows and doors.




For the background, I put a piece of Painter's tape across the bottom portion and blended some blue distress ink over that. I removed the tape and stamped the sentiment below it. I added all of the houses along the bottom edge with some foam tape.

So many fun things you can use this Cover Plate die for!

I hope you have enjoyed my card today! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Kay :)

Panda Die - Two Ways with Daria

Hello Dear Friends!

Daria here, and I have for you a cute card along with tag :) what could be more cute than a panda?


 While playing with Panda Die, I wanted to show that it is possible to use both - negative and positive die-cuts.  


For the card, I took the die and used it as a stencil, applying distress oxide ink right over it. That gave a panda face shape and a beautiful color. I decided to make it a shaker card. It is always fun. Sentiment was done with a help of Journaling Alphas Die Set and a So Many Sentiments stamp set. 

 

After die-cutting, there are such cute pieces left. I really wanted to use those, so I came with a very simple tag. By playing with placement of pieces you can make many different faces. Tag is from Classic Tag 2 die set.


Here is a quick video how it came together:



 Hope you like that simple ides and will give thema  try. Be sure to tag us in social media. We love to see what you create.

Have a beautiful day. Spring is just around the corner.:)
Daria.

Hello there!

Mayuri here to share a card using the cute Koalifications stamp set ;-)

©Candles in the Garden. Neat and Tangled February 2018

I've been experimenting recently with YUPO paper and watercolours after watching several videos on YouTube by the amazing Patti Tolley Parrish - she demonstrates different types of watercolour and other medium on YUPO paper and the results look phenomenal! I used one of the backgrounds I'd created as the backdrop to this card ;-)

I brushed various colours from my Winsor & Newton Cotman Watercolour Pocket set onto a piece of YUPO and watched the colours bleed. While the panel was still wet, I added further colour from the Finetec Pearl Metallics Palette - the effects are mesmerising, but the photos don't do it any justice! Here's a little snippet from my Instagram feed.

I put the panel aside to dry overnight and moved onto the focal element. I stamped the koala from the Koalifications set with Versafine Onyx Black ink onto a panel of white cardstock and coloured him in using Copic markers. I then stamped a sentiment from the same set into the banner area.

Once the YUPO piece was dry, I adhered it to the front of a white card base, fussy cut the koala out and foam mounted him to the card front.

I hope you'll experiment with watercolours on YUPO ;-)

Watercoloured Succulent Tag With Debby

Neat & Tangled Succulent Journaling Card https://ldli.co/e/qr2yd5

Hello, Debby here and I'm going back to my clean and simple roots with today's card. I still love clean and simple design, and when I go in a shop and see cards on the shelf, it is those that I would reach for even now. If I still bought cards that is. Sometimes I've found it hard to share a card with just the barest of designs. It's always a temptation to add more, but as they say, less can be more and so that's where today's card came from. That desire to keep things clean and simple. 

Neat & Tangled Succulent Journaling Card https://ldli.co/e/qr2yd5
I stamped the Succulent Journalling Card with clear embossing ink on Arches Cold Pressed watercolour card, sprinkled with white embossing powder and heat set. I watercoloured the succulents with Daniel Smith watercolours using lots of layers to build up the colour.

I found that the wide banner on this image was the perfect size for the two line sentiment from So Many Sentiments. I stamped the sentiment in clear embossing ink, sprinkled with Antique Gold embossing powder and heat set. I then trimmed the piece to a tag shape, punched a hole in the top and threaded with twine

I mounted the tag on to a panel of Fog card and in turn on to an Ivory card base. Finally, I accented with clear sequins. 

I resisted thoughts to dress this card up more with an interesting background, and instead let the subtle watercolours of the succulent tag stand proud as the focal point. 

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

A simple way to add dimension to your images and scenes with GDT Mindy


Hello everyone it's Mindy here today and I just wanted to pop in and inspire you with a little Easter Card. I'm using Cottontail Cuties.

I've colored my images using Copic Markers. I know this scene might look like I've masked the stamps but the bunnies and all the little eggs with the hearts are stamped separate and cut out. I actually did some fussy cutting but there is a Nice and Neat Cottontail Cuties Die Set, if you prefer.



As you can see from the photo above the bunnies and eggs are slightly rounded. To get this look all you have to do is turn the images upside down after you cut them out and take a stylus and in a circular motion go over the entire image and it will start to curve. Then I apply to my scene using some foam dots. I just love the look this gives you.


I had so much fun creating with you all this month as Neat and Tangled's Guest Designer for February. You will still be seeing me around for my monthly coloring video tutorial. Woo hoo!

Make sure you're all subscribed to Neat and Tangled YouTube Channel so you don't miss a video!

You're A Gem Watercolor Background


Hi there! It's Cheiron here with my monthly post. Today I was inspired to make a card inspired by some gift bags I found in the dollar spot at Target. They immediately reminded me of the You're A Gem set, so I picked a few of them up. I thought they would be the perfect gift bags to pass along treats to my crafty friends.


To create the background, I stamped the gems in a pattern on a piece of watercolor paper. Then I colored around all of the gems with a wash of purple. After that was dry, I started to fill in the gems with golds and pinks. Once the gems were dry, I added splatters of the same colors onto the patterned piece to add some interest. Then I sprayed over the entire panel with Tsukineko Sparkle Spray.


I stamped the You Are A Gem sentiment onto the Doily Tag die. I wanted the fun shape of the die, but I did not want it to cover the entire front of the card, so I cut off the edges and added black cardstock underneath to make it pop. To finish the card, I added a few die cut gems. Once everything was adhered, I added a layer of Nuvo Crystal Glaze onto the die cuts to really make them shine.


I love being inspired by everyday items, and it's even better when I find them at a bargain price!

Die cut shaker tag | VIDEO | Natalie Elphinstone

I couldn't help it! The first time I laid eyes on that cute Panda Die from the latest release I just knew it had to be made into a shaker tag. Who's with me?!

One thing that makes this shaker tag different from most is that each individual shaker component is separate from each other. Meaning each eye is a separate window, as is each ear, and the nose. The sections don't mix with each other which opens up so many more possibilities! In fact, next time I make this I'd love to fill each part with different mixes of sequins. I would make the eyes a different colour to it's ears and nose. Or fill all 5 with a different colour like a colour wheel! Wouldn't that be cool?!


There were many ways I could have gone with this but I decided to keep the design fairly clean and simple, and the colours fairly traditional on this occasion. I also opted to turn it into a tag instead of a card for something different. The Classic Tag 2 die set is the perfect size to fit the whole of the Panda head on it to make it the real focal point, whilst leaving just enough space around the edges to do a touch of embellishing. I chose one of the sayings from the So Many Sentiments stamp set and used two colours of ink to create a subtle ombre effect which matches the colours of the Wild Orchid sequin mix


In my video today I'm going to share how I created this tag from start to finish. It's so much easier than you might imagine!

Tips on Fussy Cutting with Kelly Latevola

Hello Crafters

It's Kelly here and today we are creating a super fun cad using this sweet girl from Beavers Eh


I started by creating a soft watercolor color background with my Distress Oxides and then drying it. I added the stencil over top and did some ink blending to darken up the color 


I stamped out my two trees from Lumberjack Love and the cuddly beaver in copic safe ink and started coloring away. Once that was done I die cut out my girl and fussy cut out my trees. 

You can watch the whole card come together in the video below which includes lots of little tips on fussy cutting 


Even though the construction had a few hiccups I love the way the card turned out. It was super easy to make this cutie the star of the show. 



Thank you so much for dropping by!
