Hey everyone! Welcome back!
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 we’re rounding up the release with something different – a 4″x3″ stamp set called Punchinella – and the introduction of some actual punchinella too! Punchinella is the material that remains from creating sequins and it’s a great addition to cards and other projects, especially if you like mixed media or texture/layers!
I wanted the stamp to be the main focus, so I came up with this:
I love how this turned out!
I started with a panel of Rustic White card base and stamped the Punchinella stamp twice using Versamark ink to cover the base, then heat embossed with WOW! Clear Semi Dull embossing powder. I then repeated the step, embossing with WOW! Metallic Gold Rich Pale embossing powder for a cool offset look! I deliberately didn’t stamp/emboss perfectly so that I was left with a really cool finish!
I finished up by stamping the sentiment from Gifts For You onto a strip of Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock using WPlus9 ink in Nautical Navy, trimmed into a fishtail banner and affixed to my base using my Tiny Attacher and I was all done!!
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!
