Peerless Watercolors with Kelly Latevola

Hello Crafters! 

It's Kelly here and today we are embracing the season! 

One of the benefits of living in Ohio is hands down that we have four distinct seasons. 
This means when Autumn comes there's so much gorgeous foliage everywhere you can hardly get anywhere on time because you're always just staring at it. 

Or it could be because I have 3 jobs and a 4 year old child. 
Let's blame the beautiful leaves shall we?  


If you look closely at the painted panel you'll notice that the background isn't actually white. 
I'm in love with the Rice Paddies Stencil and I can't stop putting it on everything. 
Because of my obsession I didn't realize that they are actually sold out in the shop. 
I'm Sorry! 
They'll be back soon! 
In the meantime if you would like to try this technique we have a ton of really great stencils in the store that would look amazing too! You can see them all here


Along with the stenciling I did some heat embossing so I could use those beautiful Autumn colors to watercolor with! 
You can watch the card come together in the video below 


Any watercolor medium will work with this technique. I just love those Peerless colors because they are so highly pigmented the colors are very intense. 
You know I love me some bright colors! 


Even though there's brights color everywhere my favorite part is actually the sentiment. 
I hope you find a little bit of kindness in your day today :)

Thanks for visiting!

Merry & Bright Leaves with Yoonsun Hur

TGIF!  Today our October guest designer, Yoonsun Hur, is back with us showing us how you can stretch your fall sets to cover other occasions.  Take a look:


Hello crafty friends, Yoonsun here and I am happy to be sharing another Christmas card using the Maple Thanks stamp set and the Merry and Bright Nice and Neat die. Maple Thanks is technically an autumn set, but we can also use it for Christmas projects too. Why not?


Before stamping, I tore the top & bottom part of the watercolor panel. I then stamped maple leaves from the Maple Thanks set onto the panel using Antique Linen Distress ink, and coloured the stamped leaves with some Distress markers: (Red) Candied Apple, (Green) Crushed Olive & Lucky Clover. The background was coloured with Tumbled Glass Distress ink and a wet paint brush.



Once the panel was dry, I heat embossed the maple leaf images over each of the 4 coloured leaves in white – I didn’t do white heat embossing before coloring on purpose. I just wanted to make snow-covered leaves.



For the sentiment, I die cut the word “Merry & Bright” from kraft card stock five times, and then stacked them up using a fine tip glue pen. Finally, I mounted the background panel on a side-folded kraft card base using double-sided tape first, and then added the sentiment die cuts using foam tape.




Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend!!

Easy Mirror Image and Reverse Die Cutting with Bibi


Hello from Scotland, It's Bibi here and today I'm sharing a video-post with a love/ friendship themed card idea using supplies from the Neat and Tangled October 2017 Release.  

what is super cool about this card is that  I applied a very easy mirror image technique using the Backdrop Stamp and Get Yeti stamp set.

 I  also used the large sentiment from Hello Winter Stamp Set and one of thesmall sentiments from Together Stamp Set to complete this card message.

In the video below you can see the whole process of creating this card and also  how to cut the mirrored images using coordinating dies.

Winter with Stephanie Gold

Hey friends! Stephanie Gold here with a fun winter card for you today. :)


This Backdrop stamp is so. much. fun. It seriously may look simple but there is a huge variety of ways you can use this thing. Especially if you put on your artsy cap and get really creative ;)


I created this background by inking the Backdrop stamp a few times in different colors and spritzing it with water before putting in onto the cardstock. Then to create the light sentiment in the background I used a dark ink and stamped it right away before my background dried. This gave it a subtle look that wouldn't compete too much with the "winter" die I wanted to use. 


Thank you so much for joining me today! Be sure to check out all of the latest Neat & Tangled new release products if you haven't done so this month already! Much love all!

Xo, Stephanie

Warmest Wishes With Kay


Hi there Kay here and I have a fun little snow scene to share with you today that I created with some adorable stamp sets from Neat & Tangled.  I absolutely love all of Elena Roussakis's designs, and what is fun is that you can mix and match elements from all of the different sets!



So for my card today I used Lumberjack LoveGet YetiFa La Llama and Merry Kisses. I created my background with Distress Oxide inks blended on Bristol Board and sprinkled with water. When this was dry, I glued it down to a horizontally folded white card base.



I created some snowy hills layering one higher up in the background and popping up the front one with foam tape. I then colored all of the cute images with Copic markers and added them to my scene. Some of the trees and mountains were tucked right under the edges of the snow and the little characters in front were popped up with foam tape.



The sentiment is from the Merry Kisses stamp set. I stamped that with Versa Mark ink, and embossed it with white embossing powder.
