Neat and Tangled May Release Day 4

Today's our last day showcasing Neat and Tangled's new products and my, have they been amazing! Today, we're showing you Clouds. It's an adorable little set perfect for cheering someone up!

I guess I'm really into the card piecing and geometrical designs because that's where I went with this card! This set is so adorable.  Each cloud has it's own little pattern on the inside.  Of course, I had to add in a silver streak to fit the sentiment!! :)

All the new sets are available in the shop. Make sure to pick you up some. I can't see these awesome sets lasting very long. :) Here's a peek at my other cards in case you missed them the first go around :)

Thank you so much for stopping by! :)

Neat and Tangled May Release Day 3

Oh my! Day 3 of the release and I think you're going to like what stamp we're showcasing today. Of course it's an awesome sentiment stamp!

I was going for a shabby chic look on this card... I think I got it. The rose stamps on the background are actually from the same sentiment. I just colored them with a distress marker and randomly stamped them for the background. :)

So tomorrow is the last day of the release. Hope to see you here!! :):) Take care!

Neat and Tangled May Release Day 2

It's day 2 of the release for Neat and Tangled. Today we're showing you Sunday School Songs. :)

I adhered a piece of patterned cardstock. On a separate piece, I stamped the sentiment and a heart (from the new Photo Booth set) and covered it with glossy accents. To bold the statement, I colored in JOY.  So simple, but I just love it!

Thank you so much for stopping by today. See you again tomorrow! :)

Hi!! Today's another Runway Inspired Challenge day!! Yay! I always love these :) Here's the card I created. 

I guess if you look at this inspiration photo, I didn't even include the skirt. I just couldn't help myself though. I loved these colors together so I kept it at that. The teal isn't even apart of the outfit o.O lol but I like how it turned out. All products excluding ink are from PTI. 

Here's a close up photo, cause I love taking them I guess. :)

Leave me some love and make sure to become a follower if you aren't already!! Thanks for stopping by!! :)

Neat and Tangled May Release Day 1

Today's the first day of the Neat and Tangled June Release! Are you excited?! Danielle has created some amazing stamps this month and I'm not the least bit surprised. Today the design team will be showing you Photo Booth. While I love the whole stamp set, I decided to just use the words alone. Here's what I came up with!

When I saw the sparkle, I knew I had to use glitter. I took a bunch of scrap paper and created this geometric design and snuck a piece of glitter paper in as well. I then heat embossed the sentiment and finally rounded the corners.

Pretty fun creating the card! :) and I love the colors. 

Make sure to stop by the rest of the week. The release is going all the way till May 22!

Thanks for stopping by :)

Cure for the Monday Blues #17

Hi!!! So I played along with Taheerah's Challenge today, Cure For the Monday Blues. I've been wanting to play along since she started but sometimes, there just isn't enough time. BUT I had time today. Yay! Of course, in normal Kristen fashion I finished this project in the knick of time before the challenge closed. ;) Here's my creation, completely different than I'm used to but love it nevertheless. 

The different stamps I used:

Triangles: Sweet Stamp Shop
Happy Birthday: Sweet Stamp Shop
Rain: Simon Says Stamp
Cloud die: MFT
Heart die: Simon Says Stamp
Sequins: Neat and Tangled

Thank you so much for stopping by! I'd love to hear your opinion, leave me some love! :)

Hi!! Kristen here with another post for Neat and Tangled. 

I don't know about you but there are a ton of birthdays coming up in my family this summer. I figured I'd make a birthday card in fun, summery colors which can be used for a boy or girl! The stamp set I used is Just For You.

To be honest, the card is super simple and easy to mass produce which is another reason I wanted to make it! Sometimes, there just aren't enough hours in the day. To start off, I took a piece of white cardstock and folded it in half and trimmed the edges to make sure it could fit into a business envelope. [I may just make my own envelope for this card though!]

I then took different colored pigment inks that I felt looked good together and just started stamping the balloon image all over the card front. No rhyme or reason. Lastly I stamped the sentiment, Celebrate in the lower right hand corner with some Versafine Black ink. Of course I felt like the card didn't have enough so I added glossy accents to all the balloons. I was a little nervous at first but I like how the final product turned out. :) Lastly, I chomped the bottom corners!

Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today!!

It's time for another Runway Inspired Challenge. Let's just get to the nitty gritty!

For my card, I used one of Sweet Stamp Shops stamps. This peony is just amazing. I remember telling Nicole (well suggesting really) that she needed to make a peony stamp set and voila! It was like magic. Everything I ever wanted in a stamp set was created!! Needless to say, I felt these stamps would go perfectly with the color scheme. The die of course is from Simon Says Stamp. 

I just love the simplicity of the card. I guess I've always been fond of something simple! :)

Make sure to stop by the rest of the design teams blogs and see what they created!! Oh, and play along! An awesome gift card from Simon Says Stamp is available!! Don't want to miss out.

Thanks so much :)
