Neat and Tangled + Scrapbook Adhesives Blog Hop

Hi y'all! Neat and Tangled and Scrapbook Adhesives teamed up to bring you an awesome blog hop.  I was so excited to hear we were teaming up with SA. I use their products literally ALL of the time. So I created a card special for the occasion and here's what I created. 

To create this card, I used Tiny Triangles and On the Corner from Neat and Tangled. I first blended the background with my Hero Arts Shadow Inks. I then stamped over the top with Tiny Triangles in Versa mark ink and heat set it after adding white embossing powder. I took Neat and Tangled's new die cut that coordinates with On the Corner and created a fun image. I then took some of Scrapbook Adhesives  3D Foam Squares and popped my image up. I can't say enough about these foam squares. They are the perfect height and are very durable. I've been using these since I started paper crafting and won't look to anywhere else!!

Well that's all from me today. Make sure to leave comments on Neat and Tangled's blog as well as Scrapbook Adhesives blog. There are some awesome prizes up for grabs. Two people will be chosen [one from Neat and Tangled's blog and the other from SA's blog] from the comments left. Winners will receive a prize pack. They each will have $25 worth of product from each company! Eek! So get to commenting! 

Thank you so much for stopping by! And I hope you enjoyed!! :)

It's time for another Runway Inspired Challenge! Today we're using the photo below to help give us a little inspiration for a new paper project. I love the navy and silver, seems so classic. So I decided to create a very simple, classic card.

I first took a piece of navy cardstock and blended with a blending tool some navy ink around the edges. I then took a white piece of cardstock and die cut thanks from one of Lil Inkers newest dies. To finish the card off, I took a piece of scrap paper, added some silver embossing powder and die cut a little heart. To finish off the card, the heart was popped up on pop dots and I rounded the corners. 

Here's a close up of the card!

Happy Birthday to me!!

Hi y'all! I'm here today to show off one of the newly released stamps, Photo Booth. This set is a lot of fun to work with and you cant create so many different cards using this one stamp set. I created a clean and simple card for you. 

Well, today's actually my birthday so I made a card to celebrate my day :) I took three of the images and stamped them on little squares I pre-cut. I then popped them up on foam dots, added the sentiment and finished the card off using some enamel dots and clear sequins from Neat and Tangled.  Those can be found HERE.

Here's just a close up of what I created!

Well, thank you so much for stopping by the blog today!! :) Can't wait to see you again on the 16th. A very special release is coming out and you don't want to miss it!!

Lil Inker Designs June Release Day 2

Back for Day 2 of Lil Inker's Release! :) I have two cards to show you today both using new products and one old ;)

For the first card, I used Modern Mehndi and a new Hello word die. Laura created these awesome word dies that include hello, smile and thanks. Perfect for any type of card!

It's a very easy card to create. I just stamped the background in different colors and adhered the die with foam dots and of course, I added glitter to the word! 

The next card is the most simple card I think I have ever created but I love it. I just love simple. It's using the new Piece of Me stamp set and Puzzle Pieces die. 

Maybe I'll send it to my husband while he's on a deployment. He'd get a kick out of it! :)

And a quick glimpse of the new products I used.

Here's the blog hop list :)

Lil Inker Designs June Release Day 1

Hi I'm here today with Lil Inker Designs June Release. They have released some awesome products. Let's just get to it!! :) Below are the two stamps I used!!

And here is my card!! :)

To start the card off, I took one of LID's dies and made it into a stencil and blended the background with a bunch of different and fun colors. To top it off, I added an adorable sentiment created from the two stamps and made my own banner. I popped it up with foam adhesive and voila!

Here's the blog hop list in case you get lost.

Kristen << you're here!

Make sure to stop back by tomorrow to see more!
