Neat & Tangled Release Day 3 + GIVEAWAY

Welcome back to Day 3 of inspiration for the Neat & Tangled release! I have another project to share using the gorgeous Grateful Heart stamp set. I really can’t get enough of this beauty!


Be sure to head over to the Neat & Tangled blog to find out how to enter the giveaway for the entire release & a $25 gift certificate for the store.


I’m going to start by creating my background. Using an acrylic block and Soft Stone ink, I’m going to randomly stamp the image onto Neenah Solar white card stock.

For my centerpiece, I randomly stamped the image again from Grateful Heart using Obsidian Ink from Gina K Designs. Then I colored with copic markers. I used RV09, RV14, R13, RV21, and RV11 for the flowers and YG17, YG25, and YG21 for the leaves.

After coloring the images, I used the Lovely Blossoms die to die cut out the shape. I think this adds such a unique touch to the card. I added foam behind my die cut piece and added to the card front.

To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment in embossing ink onto Black card stock and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then trimmed the sentiment down to a thin strip.

Neat & Tangled Release Day 2 + GIVEAWAY

Welcome back everyone! I’m continuing to share inspiration from the Neat & Tangled release that became available for purchase on Monday. If you haven’t checked it out yet – head on over!


You have a chance to win the entire release! Be sure to head over the Neat & Tangled blog for all the details.


Now not that I’m dreaming of Christmas or snow but the new Delicate Dot background stamp makes the most perfect snow! I stamped the background in clear embossing ink onto a piece of Powder Blue card stock. Then heat embossed with white embossing powder.

I added a touch of ink blending around the edges using the Powder Blue ink from Gina K Designs with a Life Changing Blender Brush.

How adorable is this llama? It’s not new but it sure is cute! I stamped it in copic friendly ink and colored with copic markers. Then used the coordinating die to cut it out and add to my snowy background with foam squares. I hope you have the Fa La La stamp set in your stash because as I was gathering my links for my list below, I could not find it available anyway. Sorry about that!

This sentiment is also on the Fa La La stamp set. I just heat embossed it in white embossing powder onto Blue Denim card stock and trimmed into strips to add to my card front.

I have a release video + card that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel. I will show you each of the new products and make a card from start to finish.

I used all of the new products on my card today. I’m going to start it off by coloring my images from the NEW Grateful Heart stamp set, using my copic markers. I stamped the images in Obsidian Amalgam Ink from Gina K Designs onto Neenah Solar White card stock. The copic colors I used are RV69, RV66, & RV63.

Once colored, I used the coordinating die to die cut the images.

For my background, I’m stamping the NEW Delicate Dots stamp set onto White card stock using the Obsidian Amalgam Ink. This background will work so well with so many other images as well.

The sentiment is also from the Grateful Heart stamp set. I stamped it in clear ink onto Black card stock and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

I arranged my images onto my background and glued the flowers in the background to the card front with Lawn Fawn liquid glue. To add dimension to my card, I attached the large flower image with Gina K Designs foam squares.

My sentiment is also popped up with foam squares and I finished off the card by adding some of the NEW enamel dots. I don’t show them in the pictures above but I did add them to the card I recreated in the video.

Ocean Scene Reveal Wheel

Welcome everyone! Recently my husband and daughter took a 7-day trip to St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands. I stayed back with our son but they sent me amazing, breath-taking pictures! One of them was a picture of beach and the gorgeous shades of blue in the water. I tried to recreate a card inspired by this image.

Breath-taking right? I’ve never been to the ocean but this is exactly what I hope to see some day.

For my card, I masked off the top half of a piece of Neenah Solar White card stock and ink blended Salty Ocean. After removing the mask and placing on top of my sky, I ink blended Chipped Sapphire.

I ink blended a few more strips of card stock using Chipped Sapphire and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide and die cut them using the Stitched Simple Wavy Border. I also die cut these pieces with the Reveal Wheel die. This way I could layer the front of my card.

I added palm trees using the Tropical Background using Paper Bag and Cilantro card stock. I know there wasn’t palm trees in the original picture but the bottom of my card needed something. I also added some cute little kitties from the Keep On Swimming stamp/die set.

I have a little mountain in the background that I got from the Ahoy Matey Stamp set.

To create the reveal wheel I used the Reveal Wheel Die, Reveal Wheel Friends & Family Sentiments, & Reveal Wheel Essential Shapes Templates.

So what do you think? Did I come close? I love the different shades of water.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration. This is a perfect time to create an interactive card and enter it in the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #58 – Interactive.

Kitty Surprise! Lawn Fawn

Welcome everyone! I have a fun surprise card to share with you. In most of my experiences, cats do not like baths. So to pair this adorable cat in a bath tub with this sentiment makes me giggle.


I have a tutorial that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.


I stamped and colored images from Rub A Dub Dub, Say What Pets and Meow You Doin stamp sets. I used the coordinating dies to cut out the images, holding them in place with post it tape.

The fun background was created by diecutting Mermaid card stock using the Stitched Speech Bubble Backdrop and then once again with the Large Stitched 4 Bar Rectangle. I added cute sentiments from the Critter Chatter stamp set with Peacock Ink for contrast.

I used the Let’s Toast Pull Tab Add On to have my kitty popping up from the bath tub. Instead of using white cardstock, I die cut the element from Acetate. This is especially helpful because my kitty is so small, you won’t see the interactive portion.

I layered my panel onto Peacock cardstock with foam tape and then adhered to a white card base.

The sentiment is from Birthday Before & After stamp set. I heat embossed it in white onto Guava card stock.

This makes such a fun birthday card, don’t ya think?
