Merry & Bright Leaves with Yoonsun Hur

TGIF!  Today our October guest designer, Yoonsun Hur, is back with us showing us how you can stretch your fall sets to cover other occasions.  Take a look:

Hello crafty friends, Yoonsun here and I am happy to be sharing another Christmas card using the Maple Thanks stamp set and the Merry and Bright Nice and Neat die. Maple Thanks is technically an autumn set, but we can also use it for Christmas projects too. Why not?

Before stamping, I tore the top & bottom part of the watercolor panel. I then stamped maple leaves from the Maple Thanks set onto the panel using Antique Linen Distress ink, and coloured the stamped leaves with some Distress markers: (Red) Candied Apple, (Green) Crushed Olive & Lucky Clover. The background was coloured with Tumbled Glass Distress ink and a wet paint brush.

Once the panel was dry, I heat embossed the maple leaf images over each of the 4 coloured leaves in white – I didn’t do white heat embossing before coloring on purpose. I just wanted to make snow-covered leaves.

For the sentiment, I die cut the word “Merry & Bright” from kraft card stock five times, and then stacked them up using a fine tip glue pen. Finally, I mounted the background panel on a side-folded kraft card base using double-sided tape first, and then added the sentiment die cuts using foam tape.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend!!

Easy Mirror Image and Reverse Die Cutting with Bibi

Hello from Scotland, It's Bibi here and today I'm sharing a video-post with a love/ friendship themed card idea using supplies from the Neat and Tangled October 2017 Release.  

what is super cool about this card is that  I applied a very easy mirror image technique using the Backdrop Stamp and Get Yeti stamp set.

 I  also used the large sentiment from Hello Winter Stamp Set and one of thesmall sentiments from Together Stamp Set to complete this card message.

In the video below you can see the whole process of creating this card and also  how to cut the mirrored images using coordinating dies.

Winter with Stephanie Gold

Hey friends! Stephanie Gold here with a fun winter card for you today. :)

This Backdrop stamp is so. much. fun. It seriously may look simple but there is a huge variety of ways you can use this thing. Especially if you put on your artsy cap and get really creative ;)

I created this background by inking the Backdrop stamp a few times in different colors and spritzing it with water before putting in onto the cardstock. Then to create the light sentiment in the background I used a dark ink and stamped it right away before my background dried. This gave it a subtle look that wouldn't compete too much with the "winter" die I wanted to use. 

Thank you so much for joining me today! Be sure to check out all of the latest Neat & Tangled new release products if you haven't done so this month already! Much love all!

Xo, Stephanie


Warmest Wishes With Kay

Hi there Kay here and I have a fun little snow scene to share with you today that I created with some adorable stamp sets from Neat & Tangled.  I absolutely love all of Elena Roussakis's designs, and what is fun is that you can mix and match elements from all of the different sets!

So for my card today I used Lumberjack LoveGet YetiFa La Llama and Merry Kisses. I created my background with Distress Oxide inks blended on Bristol Board and sprinkled with water. When this was dry, I glued it down to a horizontally folded white card base.

I created some snowy hills layering one higher up in the background and popping up the front one with foam tape. I then colored all of the cute images with Copic markers and added them to my scene. Some of the trees and mountains were tucked right under the edges of the snow and the little characters in front were popped up with foam tape.

The sentiment is from the Merry Kisses stamp set. I stamped that with Versa Mark ink, and embossed it with white embossing powder.

Confetti cards with Daria

Hello dear friends!

Daria here today. And it is such a pleasure to host Neat&Tangled blog again after a break (maternity leave:).

I want to share two very similar cards with you today using Falling Circles cover plate from the latest release and Hooray Word die.

The moment I saw this cover plate, I thought about confetti. It  talks to me: "In-laid...". So I couldn't resist (lol).

This is very simple, but I believe eye-catching design. In-laid technique gives it texture and dimension, and a realistic confetti look.

Hooray Word die was a perfect match to finish it up.

I hope you like this idea and will give a try. Be sure to tag us in social media, so we can see your projects.

Thanks sooooo much for stopping by,

Special Delivery with Daria!

Hello friends!

Daria created the most adorable shaker card using our new Truck die and Jewel Tones sequin mix! I also love how she used the Falling Circles Cover Plate die, and used the circles as little confetti!

While the Truck die is great for creating those 3D trucks, it's also great for creating flat cards as well by cutting and trimming out just one side of the truck!

Think of all the cute things you could put in that shaker besides sequins - I'm thinking stamped and die cut treats, gift boxes or cute critters!

Thanks for taking a look! 

Introducing October Guest Designer - Yoonsun Hur

Happy Friday!  We are so excited to be welcoming Yoonsun Hur as our guest designer this month.  Yoonsun is an old N&T friend and we are always thrilled when she can be with us.  Here's a bit about Yoonsun:

Hello Everyone! I'm Yoonsun Hur a South Korean-born Australian and I currently live in Sydney with my gorgeous husband. I love being creative!! I really love making cards with various and awesome stuff. I have been working as a Graphic designer since 2000 and this career has helped me in many ways when designing cards. I endlessly want to make various attempts and share my creativity with you.

Today I want to share with you my fun Christmas card with so adorable Beary Merry Stamp Set and the Merry and Bright Nice and Neat Die.

I started by stamping cute polar bear and candy cane from the Beary Merry set on watercolor paper using black pigment ink. I then watercolored and fussy cut them. You can use the matching dies to cut stamped images. It is so much easier than use scissors. ;)

For the snowy night background, I ink blended on watercolor paper panel with Mermaid Lagoon, Faded Jean, Seedless Preserves, Black Soot Distress inks and mini blending tool, and then added white ink splatters all around the panel. For the sentiment, I die cut the word “Merry & Bright” from white card stock fine times, and then stacked them up using glue pen.

Once the panel was completely dry, I mounted it on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added the sentiment die cut and the polar bear holding a candy cane on the card front using foam tape.

I had a great time with this adorable stamps & dies!

That’s it for today. Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend!!
