Neat & Tangled October 2014 Release - Introducing Very Merry & Tiny Triangles Die

Hey everyone! Welcome back!

So it's time for the Neat & Tangled October Release! We have *six* awesome sets being released this month!! Definitely something for everyone, with some super-versatile sets!!



Today I'm helping to introduce an awesome and versatile sentiment set featured around the main sentiment 'merry'! Very Merry features a wonderful handwritten 'merry' sentiment and many accompanying sentiments as well as a great star spray image too! We're also introducing a die which co-ordinates with the previously released Tiny Triangles stamp set - the Tiny Triangles die!

I couldn't wait to combine these two items together! Here's what I came up with:



I love how this turned out!



I started by die cutting the triangle pattern from patterned paper from the Glitz Yours Truly collection, then backed the paper onto some die cut cardstock too. I then stamped it with the star pattern using Scarlet Jewel ink and splattered the panel with Perfect Pearls Mists in Heirloom Gold and Biscotti.



I stamped the 'Merry' onto a piece of Rustic White cardstock and trimmed it out, then inked it with the VintageTouch Tea Dye Duo inks. I adhered it to my panel using Pinflair Glue Gel then used some more Pinflair to adhere the die cut to some POW! Glitter Paper!



I stamped the accompanying sentiment onto another strip of cardstock using Versafine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed using WOW! Metallic Gold Sparkle embossing powder and adhered with Pinflair. Finally, I adhered my panel onto a Rustic White card base which I'd splattered with some more Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls Mist and I was all done!



I do strongly encourage you to visit the Neat & Tangled Blog to see what the rest of the DT has created and to hop along and leave them some love! There's prizes in it for you!

Thanks so much for stopping by - I would love it if you left some love before you went on your way!

Neat & Tangled October 2014 Release - Introducing Winter Trees

Hey everyone! Welcome back!

So it's time for the Neat & Tangled October Release! We have *six* awesome sets being released this month!! Definitely something for everyone, with some super-versatile sets!!



Today I'm helping to introduce another of the awesome sets designed by my friend, Miriam Prantner! Winter Trees has a gorgeous treescape, a variety of star images and some wonderful sentiments inspired by hymns and carols!

I wanted to make the sentiment the star of the show so I came up with this:



I love how this turned out!



I started with a panel of Pure White cardstock and blended in Distress Inks in Chipped Sapphire, Stormy Sky, Scattered Straw and Squeezed Lemonade then spritzed with water mixed with Perfect Pearls. I then stamped the sentiment using Versamark and heat embossed with WOW! Metallic Platinum Sparkle embossing powder.



I repeated the stamping and embossing with the stars from Winter Trees and the star trails from Time Warp then stamped over the sentiment again with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I matted my panel onto some Onyx Shimmer cardstock and then adhered to a Pure White card base and I was all done!

Neat & Tangled October 2014 Release - Introducing Warm Wishes

Hey everyone! Welcome back!

So it's time for the Neat & Tangled October Release! We have *six* awesome sets being released this month!! Definitely something for everyone, with some super-versatile sets!!



Today I'm helping to introduce a little cutie set called Warm Wishes!! This set features an adorable hand-drawn mug and one of Danielle's signature handwritten sentiments! You're going to love this one!

I kept the design very CAS for this one:



I love how this turned out!



I started with a Pure Poppy card base and stamped the image using GinaK White Pigment ink. Whilst this is white enough on its own I decided to heat emboss it with WOW! Opaque Bright White embossing powder so that it really popped!



I added some subtle texture using the Burlap Impression Plate to resemble a scarf or sweater and I was all done!

Neat & Tangled October 2014 Release - Introducing Little Santa Girl

Hey everyone! Welcome back!

This is my second post of the day. Please scroll down for this week's Runway Inspired Challenge!! :-)

So it's time for the Neat & Tangled October Release! We have *six* awesome sets being released this month!! Definitely something for everyone, with some super-versatile sets!!



Today I'm helping to introduce a little cutie set called Little Santa Girl!! This set features cute hand drawn illustrations and perfect little additional images and sentiments! More versatile than it would first appear!

I focused on one of the sentiments and came up with this:



I love how this turned out!



I started with a panel of White Woodgrain cardstock and splattered it with Heidi Swapp Colour Shine Mist in Black Velvet, then stamped some of the snowflakes from Winter Wishes using Versafine Onyx Black ink.


I then stamped the sentiment and holly leaves (part of a different image) onto Pure White cardstock using Versafine and watercoloured with Distress Inks in Festive Berries, Worn Lipstick, Barn Door, Shabby Shutters and Crushed Olive, using water mixed with a little Perfect Pearls. I trimmed them out and adhered in place using Pinflair Glue Gel, sandwiched between one of the gold puffy stickers from Pinkfresh Studio before adhering my panel to a True Black card base to complete the look!
