Gobble Gobble Gobble

Hi everyone! I hope you're having a great week!

It's the last day of Neat & Tangled's release week! All of the stamps and dies are in the store now. :)

Today we're sharing projects using the Turkey Talk stamp set and dies. Here's what I made:

Gobble Gobble

This card started with the background. I had a strange inspiration source--THIS video for Meow Mix. After I watched this video, I had that "Meow, meow, meow, meow" stuck in my head... The "gobble gobble" stamp in Turkey Talk reminded me of the Meow Mix tune. LOL! So I stamped the sentiment about 50 times in gold. 

I stamped and Copic colored the turkey. As an FYI, he's larger than the Thankful Turkey stamp. When you see the card at an angle, you can see the gold background:

Go and Do Amazing Things

Hi everyone! I hope you're having a great week!

It's day 4 of Neat & Tangled's release week! Today we're sharing projects using the Origami Map stamp set, which was designed by Miriam Prantner. Danielle is sharing pictures of the set on the Neat & Tangled blog.

This set is fun and very versatile! Here's what I made:

Go and Do Amazing Things

This card took time, but it was pretty easy to make. I stamped the Origami Map, got out a bunch of Copics, and started coloring. I skipped the shading--otherwise, I'd probably still be coloring. ;) Once I was done, I fussy cut the map and trimmed off the edge.

The sentiment and airplane are also from the Origami Map set. I stamped them on the MME Just Sayin' paper:

Go and Do Amazing Things

Since the map had so many colors and is graphic, I decided to keep the card pretty CAS.

I Love a Different Sentiment

Hi everyone! I hope you're having a great week!

It's day 3 of Neat & Tangled's release week! Today we're sharing projects using the My Plate is Full stamp set and coordinating dies. Danielle is sharing pictures of the set and dies on the Neat & Tangled blog.

Here's what I made:

Gather Together


I felt like I haven't been hybriding as much (and yes, I made up that word), so I decided to use my new One Little Bird digital papers for this card. After resizing and printing the papers, I stamped the sentiment, swag, and rings from the new My Plate is Full set on one of the patterned papers. I thought the sentiment would work for an invitation or a hostess thank you. I love that it's a different sentiment!

I die-cut the leaves on my Cameo and strung them together like I did in THIS card and knotted the ends.

Gather Together

I finished the card with some mist and Neat & Tangled sequins the Orchid Satin sequins matched perfectly.

Full of Thanks and Giving

Hi everyone! Uh oh. It's only day two, and I don't have anything to say. Ha! Let's get to it.


It's day 2 of Neat & Tangled's release week! Today we're sharing projects using the Be Full stamp set. Danielle is sharing pictures of the set on the Neat & Tangled blog.

Here's what I made:

Be Full


Over a month ago, I watercolored a background using spray mists for another project. It ended up not working, but I kept it in my pile of "maybe I'll use it someday" elements. When I saw the Be Full stamp set, I knew it would work! Yeah!

I stamped the sentiment with Brilliance Black ink, which added some extra shimmer to the already-shimmery misted background:

Be Full 

I had to stitch down that panel, so I added some wonky stitching. The layered elements in the corner are from Simple Stories. I know poinsettias don't grow acorns, but it looked good.

Neat & Tangled Release Day 1

Hi everyone! I hope you had a great weekend!



It's release week at Neat & Tangled! To kick things off, we're sharing projects using the Creepy Cute, Creepy Cute Shadows and Sentiments, Creepy Cute Dies, and Spooktacular Sequins. Danielle is sharing pictures of the products on the Neat & Tangled blog.

Here's how I used the sets:

Trick or Treat


Aren't those little guys adorable? I masked and added the bow on the ghost. I realized after I took the picture that I used my "draft" ghost instead of the final one. Oops! I really need reading glasses. 

I added the face to the candy corn--isn't he the cutest? The ghost and candy corn are from the Creepy Cute, and the sentiment and spider are from the Creepy Cute Shadows and Sentiments

Trick or Treat


After I had all of the elements on the AC Haunted Hollow paper, I felt like it needed something more. I flipped through my pins and saw THIS gorgeous card by Rahel Menig. I *loved* the glitter edges and had to try it. I also added a few drops of a metallic mist. Here's the card in the light:
