So Proud of You!

Hello everyone!

I have another Neat & Tangled collaboration post for you today. I got to work with a beautiful set called Gardenia Blooms Journaling Card. I don't scrapbook but I thought that this was a very versatile set to work with.

Today I used the journaling part of this stamp set as my focus point. I love to see others colour on craft cardstock with ordinary pencils so I had to try it out. I white embossed the image and coloured it in and then I wanted to add a sentiment.
And I made a boo-boo :) I forgot to use my powder tool and embossing powder was everywhere. So I used a little strip instead and put it up on foam tape. I went over that with clear Wink of Stella pen.
I used Soft Brown ink on a background stamp and some sponging to tie craft cardstock with my white card base.

If you feel inspired by our posts this month you can find Neat & Tangled products (stamps, dies and sequins) over at Simon Says Stamp :)

Thank you for coming over today and don't forget to come back tomorrow for some inspiration from Niki.

Let's Go

This month we are thrilled to be partnering with the wonderful Neat & Tangled as our collaboration partner. Always innovative, refreshing, and delightful, we were so excited to be able to work with their wonderful products.

I have always loved the Origami Map and finally got to use it today. I made a card with the intention of giving it to my husband, which highlights all of the places we've been together, and more importantly, the places we still need to go! 

And yes, I've succumbed to the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Marker craze. I didn't want to, but I did. And holy moly, there's so lovely

We have a great week of collaboration projects on the blog this week, we hope you'll come back every day. And also make sure to pop over to the Neat & Tangled Blog, as their Design Team will be joining us in the fun.

Happy day!!

Hi Everyone, Bhavana here today with my solo post for this month.  This month we have May arts ribbon as our collaborating partner and there were some amazing ribbons sent by them in my today's cards I have used two of them.

For my first card I used Hero Arts Small things stamp set. I stamped the flowers in Hero arts shadow inks passion and pale tomato and Simon says stamp sunshine ink. I used the May arts ribbon mini gingham hearts to create the small flowers in between. Die cut the tag stamped the sentiment and stuck with foam tape. 

For my second card I used Burlap vintage inspired print ribbon from May arts ribbon. Glued the ribbon at the background. Used Simon says stamp One with nature stamp set. Stamped the image in Hero arts pale tomato shadow ink. Gold embossed the outline. Stamped the sentiment in black ink. With the help of the scissors edges I gave the torn look to the front white panel. The torn edges perfectly match the ribbon a the background.
