I’m excited to be taking part today in a blog hop in honor of the 3rd birthday of Neat and Tangled! In honor of Neat and Tangled’s birthday, there’s been a special blog hop happening all week long!
Oh yeah, and there’s a special surprise release too! 2 new stamp sets, 2 new dies and some new sequins! Woohoo!
So I have a couple cards to share with you today.
First up is this jazzy little number.
I just plain love the new Seeing Stars die. It is so cool!
I applied watercolors to watercolor paper. I let it dry and then I die-cut the stars out of it. I really wanted them to stand out on my card so I die-cut them a second time from plain white cardstock and layered those watercolor stars on top.
By the way, that phrase is from the new Happiest Birthday stamp set.
And meet card #2.
So I just wanted to play and try something new for me here. I scribbled a rainbow’s worth of markers on cardstock and then I die-cut the Heart of Gold heart out of it. I purposely left some of the inner pieces in. I dunno. I think it just added to the card.
I wanted the heart to pop somewhat so I adhered it to vellum, fussy cut it and then placed it onto my card. If you look really, really, really, really close, you’ll see foam tape under that heart. But the vellum hides it pretty good!
By the way, the words on this card are from the new Heart of Gold stamp set.
Alright, so that’s what I have for you.
Be sure to stop by all the stops on today’s segment of the hop.
And be sure to leave comments as you go. Neat and Tangled will be a $100 and $50 gift certificates to some folks who left comments during the course of this week’s hop. (<—- To which I say… WOOHOO! Fingers crossed for all of you!)
Thanks for stopping by today, guys! I always appreciate your comments and kind words.
