Hey everyone! Welcome back!
This is my second post of the day. Please scroll down for this week’s Cure For The Monday Blues Challenge!! 🙂
So it’s time for the Neat & Tangled July Release! We have *five* awesome sets being released this month!! Definitely something for everyone, with some super-versatile sets!!
Today I’m helping to introduce a new set called Gifts For You. This is an awesome set featuring some really cute little faces, speech bubbles and some versatile images like a cake and tag – not to mention awesome sentiments!! Those of you who follow the crafting world will recognise that these look rather like the awesome designs of Pamela Ho! *wink*. I really love this set so so much!! We’re also introducing an awesome Summer mix of sequins today called Pink Lemonade – delicious!!
I decided to go with using the tag image to create a simple shaker card:
I love how this turned out!
I started with a panel of Vintage Cream cardstock and stamped the tag using Memento Luxe ink in Rich Cocoa. I then trimmed out the tag, also cutting a window in the middle and backing that with some acetate. I folded some Pinkfresh Studio glitter tape in half and threaded that through the hole, stamping the sentiment from Gifts For You using Versafine Onyx Black ink and heat embossing using Filigree Black embossing powder.
I built up a wall of Pinflair Glue Gel on the edges of the tag, and when dry added a sprinkling of sequins before adhering to some patterned paper from the Heidi Swapp Dreamy collection. I adhered my tag to my Rustic White card base, on top of two layers of patterned papers from the same collection, then added a stamped sentiment on another strip of paper and a sequin from Studio Calico to complete the look!
I do strongly encourage you to visit the Neat & Tangled Blog to see what the rest of the DT has created and to hop along and leave them some love!
Thanks so much for stopping by – I would love it if you left some love before you went on your way!
