Christmas Card Challenge 2016: 3

Hi guys!

I’m back again with another take on this year’s Christmas Card Challenge with my pal, Ashley.

This is card for today.

I wanted to be clean and graphic today so I whipped out the Very Merry stamp set from Neat and Tangled. It’s got some great words to pair together. I played it simple by going with a basic Christmas greeting.

To give the card just a little bit of glitz, I added some glitter gold washi tape and a couple gold sequins. So easy but totally effective in getting the card done.

So that’s what I have for you today. Be sure to stop by Ashley’s blog to see her take on challenge today. I’m sure it won’t disappoint.

See you again soon, friends.




Neat and Tangled Birthday Blog Hop


Hi guys!

Pretty dang excited to be joining my friends from Neat and Tangled for their 4th Birthday Blog Hop. They’ve put together a really fun surprise release in honor of the occasion, and I’m tickled to share a couple projects made with some of the fun new products. Yippee!

Alright, let’s get on with the projects. Give it up for card #1.

And the crowd goes wild! Woooooooo! 😉

Had fun playing with a couple of the new products for this one. I especially dig that big panel you see. I cut it with the new Doily Tag die. I cut it three times – from wood paper and pink and dark pink cardstocks. And then I layered them all together.

The celebrate word and mat was cut with the new Celebrate dies, while the stars were cut with the new Lucky Stars dies. If you look close, you’ll see the celebrate word has two tones of pink. I sponged a little ink on the bottom of the word before adhering it to the mat. You’ll also see some white stars in the open spaces of the doily tag. I just felt… well… adventurous.

Thought it this one turned out pretty fun.

And meet card #2.

I used the same supplies to make this one as the other. Those stamped words? Yep. They were stamped with a new product too. (Surprise, surprise… right?! Ha!) That would be the Celebrate stamp set. It’s a good one for making stuff for all kinds of happy occasions.

Happy Birthday, Neat and Tangled!


Hi everybody!

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.

Super Awesome Stars by Teri

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.

Heart of Gold by Teri

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.

Heart of Gold card by Teri

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.



Go-to Gal Designer Challenge: Neat and Tangled

Hey all!

It’s time for another challenge with the Go-to Gals. This time, we challenged each other to make something with products from Neat and Tangled.

So what’s the scoop with these challenges? Well, every so often we challenge each  to make something (TOTALLY for the fun of it) with a specific manufacturer’s products. Sometimes, we all play. Sometimes, we all don’t. That’s OK because it’s all about having fun.

Neat and Tangled was an easy choice! Super cute + super fun products. Plus, Danielle, the owner of Neat and Tangled, is a gem! I’ve had the chance to hang out with her on more than one occasion and can tell you that she is 110% good people! (Hugs, Danielle!)

So enough blabber (… because I really could go on and on and on), here’s the card I made.


By the way, there’s a card I shared the other day, using the same watercolor technique but with N&T’s Favorite stamp.

Here’s how I did it for this card: I just cut a base card from watercolor paper and then scribbled a lot of color with watercolor pencils onto it and then randomly spread the color with water.

I stamped on top with Neat and Tangled’s Warm Wishes stamp. I love that stamp so much! It makes me giddy.


Oh, and if you look really close at my card, you’ll see I added a little bit of white color to the mug. I did that with a pencil. And then I added a little hand stitching with my needle and floss.

Can’t wait to see what rest of the Go-to-Gal crew has cooked up this time

Have a great day, all! Be back again soon.

Today’s card (4-25)

Hi all!

Another day. Another card!


Super pumped to have this one over on the Neat & Tangled blog today. (Thanks again for asking me to make some guest projects for you this month, Danielle!)

This was so, so fun to make!

So I was going for an artsy look. I used plain old dye inks on the Ink Splash stamps. I spritzed them with water and then stamped them on right onto plain old cardstock. The result was kind a cool texture-y, distressed (sorta) look.


The sentiment was the result of me mixing a few stamps from the Sparkle and Shine set togetherl

The sequins are from Neat and Tangled too.

So that’s all I have. Be back later, gators!

Today’s card (4-18)

Hi all!

Another day. Another card.

nt_tookind1_teriMade this one for a guest designer stint with the good folks from Neat and Tangled.

Are you familiar with Neat and Tangled? They make awesome stamps and offer a fun selection of sequin mixes! And Danielle, the owner  (and mastermind/genius) of Neat and Tangled, is one super kind, talented gal! I dig her muchly.


For this card, I created diamonds patterned paper with watercolor paper. I stamped the Diamonds stamp (from Neat and Tangled… of course) with ink and then sloppily dilluted the color with water. Then, me being me, I couldn’t just let it sit and piled on some embellishments. 😉

The sentiment was created with Neat and Tangled’s Kindness Matters set.

You’ll find this card over on the Neat and Tangled blog too. You’ll find another card I made with their stamps here too! Thanks for inviting me to play, Danielle!

Be back again later, gators.


12 in 12: Day 7 (12-9)

Hi all!

We meet once again. So glad you are back!

So I’m over the halfway hump and in the final stretch of 12 in 12. (Ashley, my partner in challenge happiness, how you doing out there?)

So here’s my take on Day 7.


Ta-da! (Yes, a little dramatic effect does a post good, don’t you think?)

The wreath was created with a stamp from Neat and Tangled’s Simple Christmas set. My stamping was a little chaotic here so I added a few pearls and a twine bow (using twine from Whisker Graphics) to balance things out.


The sentiment is from Jingle All the Way by Ali Edwards, one of my all-time favorite Christmas sets from Technique Tuesday. Such a delicious mix of fonts and sayings. Great for card makers and scrapbookers.

Alright. So with that, Day 7 is D.O.N.E. Be sure to see what Ashley made today! She’s been rocking out this challenge!

Be back again tomorrow.

(PS. Tuesday is Studio Blog Hop day for December so I’ll have 2 posts.)
