Happy Tuesday crafters! I am so happy you stopped back again today for some more Neat & Tangled inspiration! This week I am sharing inspiration using the newest products from Neat & Tangled’s November release, and today I have a video featuring the Scandinavian Prints Christmas stamp set! This stamp set is one of my new favorites! I love the whimsical style of these trees, as well as the simplistic stamp layering pieces that allow you to build one of a kind trees! An added bonus with this set is that it can be used outside of the holiday season too, for cute wintry thinking of you cards! Who doesn’t love receiving a heart warming card from a friend, especially during the long, cold winters that will soon be upon us! I created a full set of these cards in a variety of different colors; proof that holiday cards don’t always have to be “traditionally” colored! For inks, I’ve chosen to work with one of my favorite ink brands; Altenew Crisp Inks. These, -as well as the Simon Says Stamp inks- are my most loved ink brands. I used a bunch of color combos, which I will list out for you (all inks are from Altenew unless otherwise noted): green: Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, Green Leaf (Simon Says Stamp), Evergreen turquoise green: Mountain Mist, Volcano Lake, Lagoon, Emerald pink: Rose Quartz, Puffy Heart, Purple Wine, Cosmic Berry bright red: Cotton Candy, Coral Berry, Ruby Red, Grapevine rustic red: Blush, Rouge, Crimson, Velvet blue: Sea Glass, Caribbean Sky, Persian Blue, Sapphire These were really fun to make! The reason I made so many was in support of the Caring Hearts Card Drive. This card drive is spearheaded by Vera Yates; she is a very talented crafter and I think that the card drive that she has been hosting for the past 7 years is a great cause to support! The purpose of the drive is to collect Holiday cards that are then distributed to nursing/assisted living homes around the world as a way to bring care, love and kindness into the lives of those that will be receiving the cards. For complete details, including where to submit cards, etc., please visit Vera’s blog HERE. WATCH THE VIDEO I have a video for you today, sharing all the details on how I created this card! If you enjoy, please give it a big thumbs up on YouTube and subscribe to my channel for more weekly inspiration! GIVEAWAY Before you go…!

Hi friends! I am popping in to let you know that I am up on the Simon Says Stamp blog today with a new video tutorial! Today, for those of you that have not heard, is Forget Me Not day; it’s a celebration of our loved ones! It is celebrated by making phone calls, writing letters, sending emails and cards or getting together with friends and family! It’s a way to let our loved ones – especially those we don’t get to see as often – that we love them, care about them and were thinking of them. In honor of this day, I have put together a thinking of you card that features some Simon exclusive products, including the You Matter stamp and die set! Here’s a sneak peek of the card I am sharing on the Simon blog: I hope you will stop by the Simon blog to check out the video! Thanks for visiting me today!!!!

Hi crafty friends! Today is the release of the brand new December 2016 Merry & Bright card kit from Simon Says Stamp! This kit features a collection of AMAZING products, which I know you will be excited to receive! The pattern papers immediately caught my eye when I opened the kit box and I was really loving the bright, happy Christmas colors. I thought it would be fun to use the papers to create ornaments. I used to create origami designs when I was younger; it was always so rewarding to see a flat piece of paper turn into something intricate and detailed… and doing something like this makes me remember those things. I’ve put together videos for each ornament, so that you can see how they were put together and follow along to make them yourself! You can check them out below… PAPER FOLDED SCALLOP ORNAMENTS This one features a scallop-edge design using the Lawn Fawn Scalloped Circle Stackables dies; however, you could create this same design without the scallops using a plain circle die (or other shapes!) I used the Doodlebug pattern papers that were included in the kit, along with the blue cardstock. I also used the Simon Says Stamp Anna snowflake die and Nuvo’s Pure Sheen glitter to add additional details to the ornament. WATCH THE VIDEO Be sure to check out the video below to see how this ornament came together! If you enjoy, please give the video a thumbs up! PAPER CHRISTMAS GLOBE ORNAMENT This “globe” ornament features a bit more intricate looking design, but in reality, it wasn’t too much harder – nor took any more time – to make than the first ornament! I again used the Doodlebug papers from the kit, along with the blue cardstock. For finishing touches, I added just some Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh, but the impact is huge! I added them in little patterns inside each of the triangle areas of the ornament; this little touch really creates a sparkly effect that I think is the perfect way to finish off the design. WATCH THE VIDEO Be sure to check out the video below to see how this ornament came together! If you enjoy, please give the video a thumbs up!

Hello everyone! Happy Thanksgiving!!! I hope your day is filled with family, friends, love and laughter, as you celebrate and give thanks for all the blessings in your life. Today I am sharing a video that is part of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags event, hosted by Tracey McNeely! Each day since November 1st, Tracey has teamed up with different companies and individuals to bring creative inspiration to YOU in the form of holiday gift tags! The really fun thing is that Tracey also encourages you to join in the fun too by submitting your own tag designs inspired by a specific day and tag during the 25 Days of Christmas Tags. Full details on how everything works can be found on Tracey’s blog HERE. Since today is Pretty Pink Posh’s day on Tracey’s blog, I am honored to be taking part and sharing inspiration using some of my current favorite Pretty Pink Posh products! I love ombré and wanted to incorporate that into these tags by doing some Distress Ink watercoloring. I watercolored onto tags that I cut from the Stitched Essentials die set (from Pretty Pink Posh). I used sentiments from the Holiday Greetings stamp set (not available for individual purchase), and the cardinal image came from the Christmas Friends stamp set. The kissing cardinals are super cute aren’t they??? These tags are very simple to recreate, and in the video below, I’ll be sharing the details on how I did it, as well as how I created the beautiful frosted edging on the tags! I hope you’ll be checking it out! Thanks again for stopping by and spending part of your Thanksgiving with me today! I plan on doing some crafting and watching my Minnesota Vikings play the Detroit Lions (and WIN hopefully too!) after enjoying a nice turkey dinner!
