Lovely Little Tangle (Honorable Mention) at Little Tangles challenge

I recently bought some Neat & Tangled merchandise. AndΒ  I couldn’t really wait to put them into good use! πŸ™‚

For my first card, I used Paper Cut Flowers.


I stamped the flowers using Color Box pigment inks – Orange, Lime and Brown from Rich Rustics. Since the flowers themselves were not cutting it, I added the dots and the little design elements from Altenew Hannah Elements using the same colors. Now, I felt that the images were very flat, without any texture – so I stamped JustRite Burlap using Hero Arts Unicorn white pigment ink. This brought in a very subtle texture – love it! πŸ™‚


I then trimmed the card panel on the sides and then into two pieces. I finally stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black. Also added a few clear sequins for embellishing. I added washi tape on the card base before adhering the two pieces on it. That finished my first card! πŸ™‚

Now for my second card. I used The Hoop die and also Hand Stitched stamp and die sets.


I first die cut and then stamped the flowers using Memento Tuxedo Black. I water-colored them using Fired Brick, Aged Mahogany, Fossilized Amber, Pumice Stone. For the hoop, I first die cut it from white cardstock, Zig Clean Color Real Brush Cool Grey pen, dipping it in Pumice Stone to achieve some shading colors (I don’t have a Zig pen of the right color!). I also die cut the hoop again from some vellum, adhered the inside piece using some tape to the outer, colored piece.

Leaving these aside to dry, I prepped the background. I used ink smooshing using Fossilized Amber and Pumice Stone. I then die-cut them using Spellbinders A2 Curved Matting Basics. I then adhered all the pieces together. Finally stamped the sentiment from Reverse Confetti All About You using Memento Tuxedo Black.
