Paint me a Rainbow with Neat & Tangled!

Welcome everyone! I’m up on the Neat & Tangled blog with a very colorful card! Can you believe this is a one layer card?!

I started by stamping this little girl from the Complementary Color stamp set is copic friendly ink onto Neenah Solar White card stock. I knew I was going to a rainbow shooting out of the tube so I colored the label in rainbow colors.

For the colorful burst I used the Landscape stencil. I actually cut it a part a little so I could frame off this area and have it swooping out. I then masked off the rest of the card with post it tape to protect it from colors.

I ink blended Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, Cracked Pistachio, Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet Distress Ink with a blending brush. With the masks and stencil still in place, I applied Moonstone Glimmer paste over the blended area.

Check out that sparkly rainbow!

When everything was dry, I stamped the sentiment to the bottom of the card. I used the Thank You sentiment from the Sweet Treats stamp set and stamped in Altenew Obsidian Ink.

Copic Colors used: Skin – E04, E11, E21, E00; Hair – E39, E37, E34; Dress – V17, V15, V12; Paint Tube – C6, C4, C3, C1; Paint Tube Label – R17, YR04, Y15, YG25, BG05, V15, C3, C1

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration!

Dream Drops & Stencils

Welcome everyone! Today I’m sharing something a little new to me and that is using Nuvo Dream Drops with Stencils. I’ll be featuring products from Neat & Tangled for my card today.

Now this technique was actually something a fellow design team member did and I just had to give it a try.

I started by spraying the back of my Geometric Circles Stencil from Neat & Tangled with Pixie Spray. This is a temporary adhesive that you can put on your stencil and provides a light tack to hold the stencil in place on your card stock. In comes in super handy for intricate stencils like this one.

I attached the stencil in place on black card stock and then started adding on some Nuvo Dream Drops in Love Potion. Taking a Tonic Spatula, I started spreading it across my stencil, just like I would glimmer paste.

It’s amazing what this product looks like on black card stock! I have the bottle in my picture and you can see it’s a light pink but once it’s on black card stock, it turns like an iridescent purple. It’s stunning in person!

Once I spread it out evenly, I remove the stencil and allow some time dry. After it was dry, which I may have helped along with my heat tool, I trimmed down to 3 3/4″ x 5″ and added to a white notecard with foam tape.

I die cut the Awesome word die once from Pixie Dust card stock and twice from white card stock. Then layered together with liquid glue. I added to the bottom half of my card with liquid glue as well.

The small sentiment that I heat embossed in white onto black card stock comes from the stamp set Mommy, Daddy and Me. I trimmed down to a thin strip and added to my card front with a tape runner.

Seriously, how stunning is this?! I’m blown away by the results ! I hope you’ll give this a try.

Neat & Tangled May Release Day 4 + GIVEAWAY

Welcome back to Day 4 of the May 2019 Release from Neat & Tangled. Our spotlight shines on the gorgeous Foliage Frame stamp set today.


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

The Foliage Frame is a beautiful 6″x8″ stamp set featuring a large frame stamp, beautiful scripty sentiments and some individual stamps of foliage as well. This stamp set also has a coordinating die that you can purchase separately and will cut out the individual foliage and the center of the large image.

For my project, I stamped my large image onto Bristol Smooth cardstock with Versafine Ink. Then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

I ink blend Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oixde Inks which are absolutely dreamy! Then I’ll wipe the excess ink from the heat embossed area to really make the black pop off the card. To add some more interest, I will flick on some perfect pearls that I mixed with water.

Using the coordinating die, I die cut out the center of the card. After I trimmed my ink blended card panel down to 4″ x 5 1/4″, I lined it up on top of a white card base using my Misti. That way I can line up the sentiment perfectly in the middle. Just be sure to remove the ink blended panel before stamping so you don’t smudge up your project.

For some dimension, I add foam tape to the back of my ink blended panel and attached to the card front.

How dreamy is this?! I adore this stamp set and the sentiments are so beautiful!

I went for bright and colorful with my card today. I stamped my background onto some Bristol Smooth card stock with Embossing Ink. Then heat embossed with White embossing powder.

Next, I used a rainbow of colors from my Zig Clean Real Brush markers and scribbled on some color. I took a water brush and brushed over the scribbles to spread out the color and blend into the next.

Once my panel was dry, I trimmed it down to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and attached foam to the back. I then added my panel to a white A2 size notecard.

For a little added interest, I die cut a heart from white card stock using the Love Mail die. Then stamped this beautiful script sentiment in the middle with Versafine Black ink. This sentiment comes from the Foliage Frame stamp set which you will be seeing soon!
