Hey everyone! Welcome back!
This is my second post of the day. Please scroll down to see this week’s Cure For The Monday Blues Challenge!
So I’m back today for a very special Blog Hop indeed! We’re here to announce a very special piece of very exciting news!!
Neat & Tangled are coming out with dies!!!
I am so so *so* giddy and excited about this!! I *love* my dies, and I *love* Neat & Tangled, so what could be better?!?!
You should have arrived here from Anna’s blog and doubtless she’s already wowed you! 😉 If you get lost at any point along the Hop, or want to start to the beginning then just head back to the Neat & Tangled blog!
So then, let’s take a look at the awesome dies we’re showcasing today (and that you have a chance of winning, BTW! Read on to the end for more details!):
There are two dies being released this time. The first co-ordinates with the A Lot to Say set, and the other with my dear super-talented friend Miriam‘s On The Corner set!! How awesome is that?!
I already shared a card today featuring the A Lot To Say die in this week’s Cure For The Monday Blues Challenge, so for this post I’m sharing something created with the On The Corner die:
I totally *love* how this turned out!!
I started with a Rustic White card base and impressed the die into the base, before stamping the pole from On The Corner with a mix of SU! ink in Tangerine Tango and PTI ink in Raspberry Fizz. I flicked on some Heidi Swapp Colour Shine Mist in Navy and stamped the sentiments using Versafine Onyx Black ink.
I then partially die cut just one of the signposts from the cardstock for an awesome pop-up/interactive touch! I adhered a die cut heat cut from wood paper using the Concentric Hearts die and stamped some clouds from the Clouds set using PTI ink in Kraft and WPlus9 ink in Lake House. I adhered some sequins for a finishing touch on the outside, along with some awesome ombre washi tape from Pinkfresh Studio!!
On the *inside* I added yet more detail! I die cut the signpost from True Black cardstock and stamped another sentiment from On The Corner using Versamark ink and heat embossed it with WOW! Opaque Bright White embossing powder. I adhered it in the same place as the post on the front, so the sign peeks out from underneath! I stamped some more clouds to finish the look!
Here’s another look at the sentiment sign peeking from the inside! How awesome is that?!?!
So, I promised you details on how to win this set, right?! TWO people will win either an On The Corner stamp set and die package, or an A Lot To Say stamp set and die package!! One winner will be selected from all the comments left on the Neat & Tangled blog, and the other from all the comments across all the collective blogs on the Hop – so make sure you comment on every stop! Your next stop is my beyond-awesome fellow Gallery Idol and my current crafting crush Jocelyn! Stand by to be dazzled!!
Here’s the full order of amazing talent taking part in this Hop!
Good luck to everyone! I would love it if you left some love before you went on your way!! Thanks so much for stopping by!!
