Lucky Squirrels + Two-Color Heat Embossing Technique | VIDEO | Emily Leiphart

I'm so excited to present another Neat & Tangled video, this time featuring the So Lucky stamp set, paired up with the adorable squirrels from My Favorite Nut, which is now back in stock everywhere! The So Lucky stamp set is perfect for St. Patrick's Day but it's also perfect for every occasion honouring a loved one!

I created a mask to heat embossed the sentiment in two colours. I used Zing! embossing powders in Aqua and Leaf. I coloured the acorn gift in colours to match the embossed sentiment. The grass was added from the Lumberjack Love stamp set.

Celebrate with Stephanie

 Hey Neat & Tangled lovers! Steph here, and I have a super dimensional card for you today. :) I started by creating a background layer using the Scalloped Cover Plate Die. I left a couple of the rows on the top and bottom in tact (I didn't punch out the little pieces) to add a bit of a striped feel to them.

To create the centerpiece I started by stamping the Floral Heart and then die cutting it and coloring it in. I used TomBow Mono liquid glue to adhere the "celebrate" die cut sentiment to the inside of the heart and popped the whole thing up on double layered foam adhesive. 

 The only thing bad about this fun card is how many shadows it produces when photographing! Lol! I hope you like it and I'm looking forward to creating with you all again soon! Much love all!

Xo, Stephanie


Partial In-Laid Scalloped Plate with Daria

Hello Dears,

Daria here. How is day or morning?

I love the in-laid technique, and I think that our new Scalloped Cover Plate is just perfect for it.  The pieces are rather big and easy to puzzle in. Moreover, partial in-laid in different colors makes it more dynamic and gives endless possibilities for different looks.

I have decided to pair it with some of our older stamp sets: Paris Stamp Set, which is now on sale, yay :) I placed my sentiment on a banner shaped pieces, made with Scalloped Nice and Neat Dies.

Sequins are perfect to add some shiny finishing touches.
Hope you liked the partial in-laid technique and will give it a try :)

Simply Missing You and Basic Card Making Tips

Hello Crafters! 

It's Kelly here and I'm super excited to share a personalized missing you card today. 

I think as card makers anything we make is usually with someone specific in mind. I really love the fact that anyone who receives a card from me was thought about from the start to the finish. When I saw the new Topography set I immediately thought of a way I could make more cards even more personal. 

I think most of us have friends near and far. Whether it's childhood friends who have moved away or friends we've met through this fantastic hobby. I thought adding in the outline of my own state to send to a friend whose moved away would be a cool way to let them know that the friends they left still missed them. On the flipside I think it would be cool to change up the sentiment and send the recipient a card with their own home on it. 

Since this card had minimal coloring I actually got to give a ton of other tips in this video I usually don't have time to talk about haha!
Check them out below

If that isnt the shortest video I've ever made it's a close second :) 
I am still in love with it though because because Black and White makes my heart go pitter patter when there's that POP of color. 

I love how the Topography set gives the card that gorgeous pattern but still makes sense with the design. This card came together so easy and I know whoever receives it will know that I'm sending some Ohio love :) 

Thanks for stopping by! 



Cottontail Cuties | Nancy Damiano

Hi there, Nancy here today with a look at the Cottontail Cuties stamp and die set. I wanted to create a card that was light and airy with a punch of color. Something that would give me a feeling of the Spring season that I'm looking so very forward to!

@nancydamiano for Neat and Tangled Copic Cards

To create the soft background, I used the Scalloped Simply Stencil and Distress Ink in Word Lipstick and Spice Marmalade. I applied the same ink to the fringe on the right side to give the texture a pop of color. The Cottontail Cutie stamped images were colored in with Copic markers so that the bold color would offset the very pale background. A few Full of Love pink sequins completes the card.

I love coloring and the Cottontail Cuties were really fun to work with! Thanks for stopping by the blog and here's to hoping that the Spring season arrives sooner rather than later.

Awesome with Guest Designer Laurie Willison

Hey there! It's Laurie here with another card using the most awesome set from Neat and Tangled! It's called just that....Awesome!

To create this card, I added some black striped washi to the card base. Next, I took a piece of vellum and added in the watercolored Seeing Stars die. I also heat embossed the "looks good on you" in white embossing power. I die cut the back layer of the awesome die in gold card stock and then added in an ink blended awesome on top. (This makes me want to start singing Everything is Awesome from the Lego Movie....) Last, I took the awesome sentiment and added it to the vellum with some foam tape for dimension. To adhere the vellum to the card front, I took a piece of card stock with a "window cut out of it and used it as a mask for the back of the vellum and then sprayed spray adhesive just inside that window. Using the adhesive this way lets the middle of the vellum sick down to the card front and lets the edges lift up for a layered look.

So that is it for today! I hope you enjoyed my card and I hope your day is awesome! Are you singing the lego movie song now? :) See you soon!

Hey Chickie Happy Easter with Keeway

Hello there! It's Keeway here today with another project with the recently released Cottontail Cuties. This set is just absolutely darling and a definite must-have!

I paired these cute bunnies with Scandinavian Prints, which was perfect to create a field of large pastel flowers. I added some additional details with my white gel pen, and then gently ink blended some green and blue at on the bottom and top sides of my background.

I stamped the sentiments in the top right corner, left aligned. I added 2 thin strips of plaid pattern paper to my A2 folded base card and then adhered my background piece. And lastly, adhered my copic colored cottontail cuties with foam tape.

Thanks for dropping by and see you next time!
