I am so excited that today is a special day for Neat & Tangled ….. Happy 5th Birthday Neat & Tangled!! As it is birthday month, Neat & Tangled have mixed things up a little and release day is today and not the usual Friday of release week! Here’s a look at what’s new and available in the Neat & Tangled store and Simon Says Stamp. I’ve linked all supplies at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used.
NEAT & TANGLED AUGUST BIRTHDAY RELEASE
I love Elena’s cute illustrations and the Wild Ones set is packed with cuteness. I stamped a variety of images from the set with Intense Black ink, die cut with their matching dies and coloured with Copics. I added Wink Of Stella to the balloon, giraffe markings and turtle markings.
Then I added Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the balloon and turtle shell.
I also added glaze to the cake topping and then sprinkled it with lots of Tim Holtz Distress Glitter to give a thick, sugary frosting. As a final add-on I used a white gel pen to add details to the critters cheeks and polka dots to the party hat.
I kept the rest of the card simple to showcase the critters. I foam mounted a Basic Rectangle of patterned paper to a white card base, foam mounted a Stitched Oval to that and then foam mounted the critters on top – lots of dimension! I white heat embossed a sentiment from the Hooray set on Dark Chocolate card, trimmed to a banner and adhered over the lower portion of the white oval to ground the scene.
As part of the Neat & Tangled birthday celebrations I have a $15 Gift Certificate to giveaway! Leave me a comment here by Sunday 13th August 11.59pm EST and I will pick a winner :D
