Hello friends! Danielle from Neat and Tangled here with some cards using some of the latest products from our June release! This month we revealed the perfect mix of stamps, dies and stencils to spark your creativity – and I wanted to share a few with you!
This first card I created using our new Magnolia stamp and die set. This stamp set is filled with bold and beautiful floral images in a variety of sizes and orientations so you can make any combination of arrangements! For my card I chose the larger floral image to make it the focus of the card. I stamped and die cut the flower, and colored using a variety of Copic markers. Next, I cut down a 4” x 5.25” mat using X cardstock. I then splattered it with some white paint, and set aside to dry.
While that was drying, I took my floral image and adhered it to clear vellum using foam adhesive. I then went and hand cut the vellum to follow the shape of the flower. Once complete, I repeated that again, so that underneath my magnolia flower I had 2 layers of vellum. It added so much dimension and interest to what could have been just a flat image!
Once the paint was dry I adhered the flower to the mat panel, and then the panel to my card base. I finished it off by stamping the sentiment on some white cardstock and adhering that under the flower!
The next card I made to share is using our incredibly adorable new So Fly stamp set. I love that this set has a larger focal image that makes for easy card designs since it can take center stage! It’s also filled with perfectly punny sentiments to match!
To start this card I stamp and die cut 2 of the large images and used my Copics to color. On one I colored all the parts, but on the second I only colored the plane. Since I’m a clean and simple card maker I love to add more interest to my cards with lots of dimension. So, after I colored my second plane image, I cut out the giraffe and elephant very carefully, and then popped it up on top of my fully colored image. I think it makes it look like those animals are really riding inside the plane!
I set my colored images aside, and grabbed my Distress Ink and foam blending tool to just do some like ink blending on a 4”x 5.25” white cardstock mat. I placed the card mat on my Misti and just arranged the colored images without adhereing them down, so I could see where I wanted the sentiment to go. I removed the images and stamped my sentiment. To wrap it up, I adhered the mat panel to my cardbase, and then added by colored images with foam adhesive!
I hope you’ve enjoyed my cards today, and they leave you feeling inspired!
