neat & tangled foliage frame

Today is the last reveal of the new Neat & Tangled May release and all I can really say is it's gorgeous! This new Foliage Frame stamp set is just stunning!
I created a very simple card, stamping the frame in Distress Oxide Blueprint Sketch. I used the coordinating die cut to remove the middle and then added a muted shaker with glassine instead of clear acetate. 
I added the "love you" die cut on top because layered die cut sentiments are my jam but the set also has fab scripty sentiments. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and make sure you head over to the Neat & Tangled blog to see what my talented teamies have created. And learn about prizes!

Have a great day!!!

neat & tangled quilted background

Today our Neat & Tangled team is sharing the 3rd new set coming out this Friday...the Quilted Background!

This fantastic background was designed by the amazing Miriam Prantner and if have seen some of my recent creations, I'm totally crushing on background stamps lately!
I love this design because it is so versatile! I stamped in clear embossing ink and embossed with clear powder on light blue cardstock for a tone-on-tone look. Then I added a little teeny bit of coloring with a light blue Copic marker.
But imagine what else you can do with it! I can't wait to ink blend over it and did you see Miriam's card yesterday? Partial stamping and coloring...so cool! (See it here.)

neat & tangled g.o.a.t

Are you ready to see the next new Neat & Tangled set? This one is so cute & silly! G.O.A.T...the greatest of all time!

This set is illustrated by the amazing Elena Roussakis! I often think her designs are so cute that I just want to stamp & color and call it good! This time I stepped outside my coloring comfort zone just a teeny bit and added freckles with colored pencils (on the farmer and the goat, LOL)!
