Spellbinders Shapeabilities Lavender Trike Etched Dies

Hi there!
I have a card to share with you today using the beautiful  Lavender Trike Etched Dies from Spellbinders.


For my card here, I first blended some Distress Ink onto a piece of Bristol Board then glued a strip of green striped patterned paper along the bottom. I then cut the die out of the same Bristol Board and colored it with Distress Inks using small sponges. I speckled it with water and more of the same colors of ink.


I glued the trike down to my card base with spray adhesive and stamped the sentiment which is from WPlus9.

All of the supplies I used are listed and linked below!

Thanks so much for stopping  by!

Neat & Tangled/Tonic Studio Collaboration: Day 2


Hi Friends!

The Neat and Tangled Design team has teamed up with Tonic Studios this week to showcase some of their fabulous products!

My card today uses the Magical Day stamp set and dies and the Many Sentiments stamp set from Neat and Tangled, along with some beautiful Pink Opal Glimmer Paste from Tonic Studios!

This is my first time using the Glimmer Paste and let me tell you, I want to run out and buy one of every color now! That stuff is so fun! I also had the pleasure of using the Tim Holtz Stamping Platform for the first time. I love it!



I used the Geometric Blooms stencil and spread the Pink Opal Glimmer paste over the top of it to create this sparkly pretty background for my unicorn.



I colored the unicorn with Copic Markers and cut it out with the coordinating die. I stamped the sentiment from Many Sentiments stamp set onto black card stock. It was heat embossed with white, then cut out with the banner die from Scalloped Dies.  I adhered the unicorn and the sentiment with foam tape to the beautiful sparkly Glimmer pasted background!



Really such a fun and easy way to fancy up a card! I'm hooked! :)

Neat & Tangled February Release


Hi there! Welcome to the last day of the February Neat & Tangled release countdown! All of the new products are available in the Neat & Tangled Store NOW!

I have one last card to share with you today using the new Geometric Circles Stencil!


I taped my stencil down over some Bristol Board card stock and blended yellow, orange and pink Distress inks over it. I sprinkled that with water and some of the inks diluted with water as well. I used the Hooray die for the sentiment, blending some of the same colors onto that too. The sentiment is from the new Many Sentiments stamp set, and I white embossed that onto some pink card stock and cut it out with one of the banners from the Scalloped Dies set. 


I added a few sequins from the new Coffee and Cream mix to finish it up!

Neat & Tangled: S'more Fun


Hi there! Welcome to the fourth day of the February  Neat & Tangled release countdown! All of the new products will be available in the Neat & Tangled Store on Friday Feb 9th at 8:00 am EST!

Today we are showcasing an absolutely adorable stamp set called S'more Fun!




I just love theses cute images, and had so much fun coloring them! I created the background with Distress ink, then splatted with water and more of the same color ink watered down. I stamped part of the sentiment right onto the card, then embossed the "S'MORE" part, cut that out, and added it with foam tape. The images were colored with Copic markers, cut out with the coordinating dies, then adhered with foam tape.



I just love those graham crackers! I added a little texture to them using terry cloth and alcohol! I thought it made them look so "crackery"!

Hi there! Welcome to the third day of the February  Neat & Tangled release countdown! All of the new products will be available in the Neat & Tangled Store on Friday Feb 9th at 8:00 am EST!


I used Distress inks to blend a pretty green and pink background first. I then cut out the Geometric Circles Coverplate with white card stock and glued that down over it. The triangles in the center were cut from The Triangle Patterned Builder dies and blended with the same colors of Distress inks. I then cut a banner with the Scalloped dies and white embossed a sentiment from the new Many Sentiments stamp set. I added that on top of the triangles with foam tape.

Neat & Tangled: Panda Die and So Many Sentiments



Hi there! Welcome to the second day of the February  Neat & Tangled release countdown! All of the new products will be available in the Neat & Tangled Store on Friday Feb 9th at 8:00 am EST!

Today we are showcasing the adorable Panda Die!



Isn't that the cutest?? I love it!  I created a fun tag with this cute die. I cut the scalloped bottom with the Scalloped Dies then cut the panda face out of that with the Panda Dies. I cut the Panda die out a second time with dark gray card stock and added the pieces back into the cut outs of the white piece to create an inlaid look. I added the two little pink cheeks with just some small circles cut out of pink card stock. I added a little strip of pink striped paper and then stamped the sentiment from the So Many Sentiments Stamp set along the bottom.

Today we are showcasing and adorable new stamp set by Elena Roussakis called Ride With Me.
