Neat and Tangled March Release!

Hello friends!

It's super late in the night here, so this will be a word-short post, but I'm so excited to be showing you two projects I made for the latest Neat and Tangled March Release!!

NEW STAMPS!




The stamp set being released today is called Just Thinking of You and OH MY GOODNESS it's wonderful.

Here are the two cards I made using this (new favourite) set:


To make this card, I used my Inktense pencils, scribbled 'blocks' of colour over some watercolour paper, then blended through them all with a water brush.
I then cut a strip through the centre of the watercolour paper, and adhered the two pieces down to some neenah cardstock.

I stamped the (GORGEOUS) sentiment, and on some scrap cardstock, the heart image several times, before cutting them out and adhering them down. I added some GLossy accents to give a nice shine.
Lastly I mounted both pieces onto some pretty teal cardstock for my cardbase!

I was definitely inspired by Jennifer McGuire with this card!

Onto the next!

I had this card in mind from the moment I saw this stamp set.



I used the speech bubble image as clouds, and masking them off as I went, I stamped it three times. Next I added that adorable bear from Little Bear, and the sentiment.

I coloured in using my Inktense pencils (yes I'm slightly obsessed) and I added some Christmas Red stickles over the heart. The letter stickers are OLD. I think they're Basic Grey.

Aww isn't he cute?! He's all in love :)

OK!!

Now please head on over to the Neat and Tangled Blog, where you can see the entire DT's AMAZING projects, to give you even more ideas of what YOU could do with this set! The possibilities are endless!!

Stamps will be on sale in the store end of the week.

See you tomorrow for day 3 of the release!
