Neat & Tangled April Release Recap

We are so close to the April release from Neat & Tangled! Today I’m sharing one more card featuring sets from the release. I combined a few of them for this adorable night time scene.

I’m going to start by ink blending. I’m adding Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide inks to a piece of Bristol Smooth card stock with a Life Changing Blender Brush. Next, I am stamping the Receding Background onto my ink blended panel using Grape Jelly Ink. I don’t push down too hard because I actually want it to be splotchy and not completely stamped.

I add some stars to the background using Grape Jelly ink. I’m kind of on a tone-on-tone kick right now and loving how this sky is looking!

My images are from the To The Stars stamp set and All the Bunnies. I stamped them onto Neenah Solar white card stock with copic friendly ink. Then colored with copic markers and cut out with the coordinating dies. I also stamp some of the puffy clouds onto Lovely Lavender card stock with Black ink and die cut out.

Now I can assemble my elements to my card to create this beautiful sky scene. I love the little bunny looking up at the moon. One final touch is adding a few sequins from the Enchanted sequin mix.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration! The release is tomorrow! Are you ready?

Neat & Tangled April Release Day 2 + Giveaway!

Welcome back to day 2 of the April 2019 Neat & Tangled release. Did you enjoy yesterday’s preview? Just wait til you see today’s!

This set is called Dream Big. Another adorable set and it coordinates so perfectly with the To The Stars stamp set. My images are stamped on to Neenah Solar White card stock with copic friendly ink and colored with copic markers. I am loving these puffy clouds!

For my background, I ink blended Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers, and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide. Then flicked with water and dabbed with a paper towel. I trimmed the panel down to 3 3/4″ x 5″ and added a little hillside with the Stitched Slopes die. I added this panel to a piece of white card stock cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″ for a nice white border. Then added to an A2 size notecard made from Whisper card stock.

Using a piece Whisper card stock I cut using the Skinny Strips, I stamped the sentiment which is from the To The Stars stamp set. My image and sentiment are popped up with foam tape for dimension.

Neat & Tangled April Release Day 1 + Giveaway!

Welcome back everyone! Today is exciting because we are starting previews to the April 2019 release for Neat & Tangled. I’m not gonna lie, I may have went over board with examples. This is such an adorable release I just couldn’t stop playing with it!


My card today also has an accompanying video that you can watch down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

I’m one of those people that creates cards and then I’ll go back and remake one for a video. My first card here, was the first one I created. The card I remade for the video came out a little different and I’ll have those pictures at the end of the post.

Today we are featuring the stamp set To The Stars. How precious is this set? I stamped my images in copic friendly ink onto Neenah Solar white card stock and colored with copic markers. Then used the coordinating die to cut them out.

I used a piece of Layering White card stock to ink blend Tattered Rose , Worn Lipstick, and Dusty Concord Distress Oxide inks. The sentiment is heat embossed in white onto black card stock and then trimmed down. I added a few of the NEW Enchanted sequins mix to my card with liquid glue and added a drop of Unicorn Stickles to the middle of the sequins.

For my next card, I used a few of the other images off of the To The Moon stamp set. There is a constellation that you can die cut out or the set also includes an individual line and stars so you can create your own constellation.

For the background, I ink blended Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink. Then applied Moonstone Nuvo Glimmer paste over the top.

I die cut a circle from a panel of white card stock and added over my textured background (once dry) with foam tape. I added this panel to an A2 size notecard made from Moonstone card stock.

The sentiment is heat embossed in white embossing powder on Moonstone card stock and cut out using the Skinny Strips die.

Now here is the card I recreated in the video. I was a little more heavy handed when it came to applying the inks which changed the look of the card a little. It’s amazing how even though using the same colors, just by changing your pressure, you can change the look of your card.

Both cards are equally adorable!

Alrighty that’s it for today from me. Be sure to check out my tutorial HERE using the To The Moon stamp set.

Blossoms & Butterflies – Simon Says Stamp Release

Welcome back everyone! I’m so excited to share with you one of the products being released from the Simon Says Stamp Blossoms & Butterflies release! It’s called Dahlia Corner Frame .This is such a beautiful die! I would quickly snatch it up because I’m sure it will sell fast!


I have a video tutorial showing how I created this card shown. You can view the video down below or HERE on my Youtube channel. Supplies will be linked in the video description and at the end of this post.

I’m going to start by creating the background for the frame. I ink blended Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide onto Gina K Designs Layering White card stock. I’ve really been enjoying ink blending on this because it’s light weight and very smooth. I’ll use the Life Changing Brushes from Picket Fence Studios to apply a soft ombre look.

Next, I will apply some Moonstone Nuvo Glimmer Paste to the ink blended area. This will coat my area with a beautiful shimmer and still allow the ombre look to show through.

Once that panel is dry, I will trim it down to 2 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ which is slightly larger then the die cut frame. This will provide a nice border around the area.

Using a piece of White Glitter card stock, I line the back of it with Double Sided Stick It adhesive. This adhesive is great for dies like this. I won’t have to fuss with adding any liquid glue to all of those cut lines. Then I die cut my frame from the glitter card stock using my Gemini Jr. I’m a huge fan of the Gemini Jr and dies like this is exactly why I bought it. It cuts like a dream!

My ink blended panel is added to a white card base with foam tape. Then I peeled off the backing of the Stick It adhesive and attached my frame to the ink blended panel.

The sentiment is from the Tiny Words stamp set which is such a versatile set and jam packed with amazing sentiments. Using a piece of black card stock that I prepped with an antistatic powder tool, I stamped the sentiment in Clear Ink and heat embossed with Brutus Monroe Alabaster White Embossing Powder. I trimmed the sentiment down with the Sentiment Labels die which is go-to of mine. The sentiment is added to the front with foam tape.

Here is another card I did with the Dahlia Corner Frame die. This time I attached it to a panel I created with Alcohol Inks.

The frame is die cut from Gold Glitter card stock for extra sparkle!

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed today’s cards.

Create a Scene with the Picture Changer

Welcome back everyone! I’ve been itching to make this card since I got the stamp set and finally got around to it. Today I’m sharing how I was able to incorporate a scene into my magic picture changer from Lawn Fawn.


I have a video that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel. It goes over the details a lot more!


I used numerous stamp sets in my scene including You Are Sublime, So Jelly and Get Well Before and After. I stamped my images onto Lawn Fawn White card stock with Jet Black ink and colored with copic markers. Then used the coordinating dies to cut them out with my Gemini Jr.

Next, I started working on my background. I ink blended Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink for my ocean floor. Then die cut with the Stitched Hillside Borders die.

My background is stenciled with Peacock Feathers with the Mini Cloud Stencil from MFT. Using a piece of Mermaid card stock I ink blended Blueprint Sketch at the very bottom and then added Peacock Feathers with my Life Changing Blender Brushes. I used the Stitched Waves Border to die cut from this piece of card stock.

I attached the waves to my cloud stenciled background. Then lined up the frame from the Picture Changer Add On and ran it through my Gemini Jr. I couldn’t find my shim but it still cut most of it out. I had to trim a few edges but otherwise worked well. This is how you can incorporate your entire scene into your picture changer. The frame is cut from the background and we will use both pieces for the card.

Next, I create my picture changer scene by stamping my whale from the Get Well Before and After stamp set. I created masks using Simon Says Stamp Masking Paper and attached over my image. Then ink blended Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch which will match my water I created.

To start assembly, I add the cloud background that I had trimmed down to 4″ x 5 1/4″ to a piece of Peacock card stock that I’ll be using as my card base. Once my magic picture changer is put together, I added it to the area it was die cut out of using a double layer of foam tape. I love how everything lines up!

Then I attach the ocean bottom with foam tape so it overlaps the picture changer window a little but not enough that it will prevent my mechanism from moving. Super cool right?!

The final step is adding all of my images to the scene. For the sentiment, I die cut a banner from Mermaid card stock using the Fancy Wavy Banners. I stamped the sentiment from Get Well Before and After using Embossing ink and heat embossing with white embossing powder.

I have a fun idea for the turtle on this stamp set too! I hope you enjoyed today’s card. Be sure to head to my video HERE for more details on the assembly.
