Partial and Ovelap Stamping & Die-cutting with Daria [Video]


Daria here. So glad you are joining us today. For today's project, I've been playing with heat-embossing on a dark cardstock, April Released Have Courage stamp and die sets, and with partial overlapped die-cutting.

I love that stamp set for the fact that it can be used to create so many different looks and in many different colors. Not only in greens. I especially like that it can be used to create a lace effect.

I started by stamping the sentiment from You're a Gem stamp set, then the leaves from Have Courage stamp set. I used masks to stamp the ginko leaves one over another.

I love the look of gold heat embossing on dark navy cardstock. I think it looks very classy, while the white brings that soft touch to it.

I used partial die-cutting and also made it slightly overlapped to save all the intricate details of the dies.  Here is a video to show you how it was done:

I hope you liked that simple ideas and will give them a try. Be sure to tag us in social media. It is always so rewarding to see what you create. 

Hugs, Daria.

On the Edge Thinking of you Card

Hi crafty friends! It's Cheiron here with my monthly post. I've been doing a lot of spring cleaning in the studio and have realized that I have a lot of stamps that have not seen any love in a long time. Today I am working with some of my older Neat and Tangled stamps - On the Edge and Just Thinking of You to create a fun card with a colorful Distress Oxide background.

To create this fun background, I used my Tim Holtz travel stamp platform and stamped in a variety of colors to give my card a sort of vintage rainbow feel.  It's not the usual traditional rainbow colors that I use, but I love the look of them in real life, they are so vibrant and almost look like they were gelli printed. I sprayed the entire stamped panel with a Distress Sprayer filled with water and blotted it with a paper towel. To finish the card, I added a heart that I inked with Distress Oxides and stamped with the sentiment from the Just Thinking of You stamp set and layered that heart onto a vellum heart and adhered it to the card. For the finishing touch, I added just a few Crystal Clear sequins.

I hope this will inspire you to take out some of your old favorites and mix them with with newer products :)


Crafting for a Cure with Hedgehog Hollow

Hi Friends. 

I know many of you are familiar with Hedgehog Hollow, the blog of a supporter and friend of Neat & Tangled, Alexandra.

They have a very close friend, part of the Hedgehog Hollow team, whose daughter is dealing with some very serious health issues.  In order to help, Hedgehog Hollow is offering some products for sale, the proceeds of which will help with medical costs.  Below is the text from Alexandra's blog post.  We encourage you all to read on and help if you're able. 

Hi Hollowers!
We are so saddened at the Hollow that part of our Prickle family has had a devastating diagnosis.  It takes lots of members of the family to keep the Hollow running, not all of whom you see on screen.  One member keeps us running no matter what and keeps your boxes rolling out without a hitch,  she has the most amazing daughter who Maddi is great friends with and you have seen them needle felting together, during spring break they were inseparable! It is with a heavy heart we found out on Friday she had a tumor in her stomach and needs a lot of treatment.  We are all praying for our friend for a full and speedy recovery,  all proceeds from this Crafting for a Cure series of two word dies and stamp set will go to the family to support in medical costs and for a donation to the hospital or other charity of their choosing.
We appreciate you purchasing these products to support Akron Children’s who do an amazing job, every member of the Hollow is part of the family and we all wish we could do more to help her.  Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
It’s easy to feel helpless at a time like this, Maddi has created the most wonderful care package for her, it’s touching how much care she has put into picking out each thing  by hand, choosing things she thinks she will enjoy at each stage fo recovery.  You can shop for the stamps and dies by clicking here; every penny makes a huge difference.  Our Maddi has also spent alot of time in the children’s hospital for many reasons and so this cause is not only close to our heart because she is part of the Hollow family but also we know how wrenching it is to have your baby in hospital, you would give anything to swap places with them.
Thank you again for all your love, prayers and support.
Alexandra and The Prickle

Have Courage with Kay

Hi there! Kay here today and I have a card to share with you today featuring the beautiful Have Courage stamp set and Coordinating dies, from the Neat & Tangled April Release.

For the background I used Peerless watercolors and a large watercolor brush. I just took the brush and swiped my paint up from the bottom left corner. I didn't wet the paper first, it was more of a dry brush stroke and super easy to do.  I then colored the beautiful ginkgo image with Copic markers and cut it out with the coordinating die. I trimmed the background down to 5.25x 4 and mounted this to an A2 top folded white card base with foam tape. 

I then adhered the gingko image with foam tape as well. I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder on black card stock, cut it out with the banner die from the Scalloped dies and added that across the bottom of the gingko with foam tape. I added a few sequins from the Peacock Feathers sequin mix to finish it up!

I hope you have enjoyed my card today!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Video - Technique Die Cuts transfer with Fabric by Bibi

Hello everyone, it is Bibi Cameron here.  I have been inspired by the stunning Cover Plate Dies by  Neat and Tangled and today I'm sharing a super fun card making video - technique to transfer large intricate die cuts to a card panel in record time.  

After experimenting for a while with large die cuts, I nailed it! Yay.

I'm using fabric and a temporary -repositionable spray adhesive to easily manipulate die cuts and as an image is worth thousand words I urge to watch the video to see the demonstration with details.

To colour the images I used Nuvo Shimmer Powders. They are awesome, easy to use and provide vibrant colours with the shimmer we love!

Below  I'm also adding close up pictures of the cards in the video.  You will get sharp and clean results all the time.


That's all for today!

thanks for stopping by and I really hope you enjoy the video and the cards.

Happy Crafting

Happy to See You Smile with Cathy Zielske

Happy Friday friends!  Our April guest designer, Cathy Zielske, is back with us today sharing he second project of the month.  We're loving this sweet, CAS card!  Here's Cathy with all the details: 

I'm so happy to be back today as a guest designer for Neat & Tangled, and I'm excited to share my second card project of the month with you. I'm using the charming Friendly Florals stamps and coordinating dies, along with some simple stamping and embossing, and some Zig Clean Color Real Brush marker coloring.

I adore the sweet blooms in this set and I knew I wanted to use my Zig markers to create a watercolor look and feel. But because my watercolor skills are developing, I decided to stamp my images and emboss them with clear powder to create a border that would contain my ink. I find it much easier to paint when there are raised outlines, which is what the embossing provides.

I stamped using Versafine ink and embossed with clear powder for that raised shine you can see in the image above.

I did the same process for the sentiment, to create a matching shiny black finish. Here's a video of the entire card process!

Thanks so much to Neat & Tangled for having me and I'll be back next Friday with my final card project for the month!
