Neat & Tangled cards


Hello!  I have 2 cards up on the Neat & Tangled blog today - be sure to check them out there! 
Today, I have two cards to share with you today. My first card uses the new Gardenia Blooms Journaling Card stamp set
To create this card, I stamped the journaling card and a sentiment on white card stock and then I colored the gardenias in with Copics very lightly using dots to create the depth and interest. 

Then, I fussy cut out the journaling card and mounted it on a card base with a patterned paper front. I love the simplicity and boldness of this card so much! 

Next up, I used the new For the Record stamp set.
 



When I saw this set, I knew I had to do something like this eventually and I'm so glad I finally went and executed just what I had envisioned! First I stamped the record player on watercolor card stock. Then I went in and got it wet and brought the watercolors to the paper in spectrum of rainbow colors. I had lots of fun flicking the watercolors around to create splatter too! 


Once it was dry I added a heat embossed sentiment and some gold sequins from Sunset Shimmer.

Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me! I hope you have a great day!

Tea Time

Hello and happy Thursday!  Today I'm playing with the new Avery Elle Tea Time set.  It's my grandmother's 92nd birthday today and this set so reminds me of her!

First I used the You're Invited die, Pinked die and patterned paper from our Everyday Collection layered together.  I love dies that allow you to layer. 


Next, I masked and stamped the images the images and colored them in with Copics to create a softer feel feel using Tea Time with Pinked and Dotted dies.  
 
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!
