Neat & Tangled February Release and Giveaways Day 1

Welcome back everyone. It’s time for the Neat & Tangled February Release. I have a couple cards to share using the NEW Mail Background and Love Mail Dies that will be available for purchase on Friday, February 8, 2019.
The Mail Background stamp set is a beautiful red rubber background stamp. I stamped it onto Bristol Smooth card stock with Versamark in and heat embossed with Alabaster embossing powder. Then I ink blended Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink in the middle and Tattered Rose. 
I trimmed the panel down to 3 3/4″ x 5″, matted to a white panel and attached to an A2 size card base made from Red Velvet card stock. 
I added this adorable puppy from Puppy’s Favorite Things by coloring with copic makers and using the coordinating die to cut it out. My puppy is holding a little envelope that I die cut from Passionate Pink card stock using the Love Mail dies.
My sentiment is heat embossed in gold embossing powder onto Red Velvet card stock and trimmed down using a new die that you will see more of later this week called Skinny Strips.
For my next card, I once again inked up the Mail Background red rubber stamp with Versamark ink and stamped onto Canson Watercolor paper. I heat embossed with Alabaster Embossing Powder and secured the card stock to a wooden board with purple tape. 
I spritzed the background with water and sprinkled on Cherry Bomb Shimmer Powder. I spritzed on some more water and then picked up my board and moved the water around. I used my heat tool to dry the water but be careful as to not reheat the embossing powder. 
Once my panel was dry, I trimmed down to 3 3/4″ x 5″, matted to a white card panel and attached to an A2 card base made from Fog card stock. I die cut the  heart using Gold Glitter card stock from the Mail Background coordinating dies and added to the bottom of my panel. 
My sentiment (another little peek for later this week!) is stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. I trimmed down using the Skinny Strips die and added to my panel with foam squares.
I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration! Much more to come this week!
