Getting Bold and Graphic with Neat & Tangled

by | Feb 15, 2019 | Backgrounds, Blog, Happy Thoughts, Neat & Tangled

Happy day to you, friends! Today, I’m sharing here and on the Neat & Tangled blog my second of three guest posts for February. Today’s project features the Lovely Lotus stamp set. I’ve used just one flower from the set, but it includes two additional full blooms, two buds, two leaves and a handful of sentiments. This 6” x 8” stamp set is a colorists dream with its open spaces crying out for color!

 

To create this card, stamp a Lovely Lotus in black on Smooth Bristol paper and heat emboss with a clear based sparkly embossing powder. Color image with water based markers. Die cut Falling Circles into white cardstock and then back with black.

Project supply list can be found HERE.

Adhere trimmed Falling Circles onto an A2 (4 ¼” x 5 ½”) cardstock panel horizontally. Die cut Lovely Lotus and adhere popped up over background with dimensional adhesive. White heat emboss Lovely Lotus sentiment and adhere in place with dimensional adhesive over edge of circle panel. Add a touch of twinkle with holographic thread wrapped three times below the sentiment and secure to back with tape. Adhere finished panel to an A2 card base.

Neat & Tangled just had a new release in the last week. Oh my, I am loving the Mail Background and the Skinny Strips dies! I’ll be playing with those soon! You can find the complete release HERE.

Thank you for spending a few minutes with me today. If you’ve been inspired to create, tag me on social media! I’d love to see what you’re up to!

xo, Janette
