Today is the last day of full product reveals before everything goes live in the Neat & Tangled store tomorrow! Woo hoo! Have you enjoyed the release so far??

by Stephanie Gold for Neat & Tangled Succulent Cover Plate

The thin lines on this succulent are so lovely that I really wanted to double them up. I used two beautiful green cardstocks and overlapped them for a fun netting look. They are adhered to the card base using staples only so the pieces can move about freely and add texture and movement to the design.

by Stephanie Gold - Felicity Jane card - Golden Simplicity

Hey everyone! I have another Felicity Jane card to share with you today. I made a little clean and simple encouragement card using a “keep moving forward” stamp from the kit’s stamp set (which is adorable… you should check it out – FJ Susie). I backed the stamped journal card with a thin layer of bright pink cardstock and popped it up with dimensional adhesive onto a dry embossed white cardstock layer. I used Maggie Holmes Open Book embossing folder to impress it. 🙂

These stamps are pretty nice. This was my first time using Felicity Jane stamps and I was pretty impressed. I finished the card off with a thin bright pink ribbon and left it alone. Hoping to get back in the craft room today – ON A SATURDAY…. WHAT???!!!! I am so excited. Crafty time never happens for me on a Saturday. Hoping you all get some crafting out of your systems today too! Much love!!

Hello loves! I have Maggie Holmes baby shower card for you today! This baby shower card might look a little different to you than most shower cards, but if you know me, you will recognize that this card is much more my style. I whipped out the good ole Open Book Collection for this one, including the dies and embossing folder. I accented the die cut frame with a little bit of gold washi tape and kept the whole card pretty simple and sweet.

I truly love the way it turned out. I made this a while ago actually for my sister-in-law’s friend who was having a baby at the time. Doesn’t the seam binding look so whimsical on top?? <insert heart-eyed emoji here> 😉

Have a great day my dears! Much love!

Fall Autumn Thanksgiving Name Place Tags

I am so excited that it is finally getting cold around here! We have been able to wear sweaters for a solid few days and still be chilly!!! This is my favorite time of year and I’m getting ready by making table name place cards for fall festivities and Thanksgiving dinner.

I went with a very traditional color scheme and spray painted fall silk leaves with gold paint. I made some of them solid gold and some of them with a faded gold edge. I also had a pack of leaves in my stash with gold glitter accents which I was very quick to jump in and use. 🙂

Fall Autumn Thanksgiving Name Place Tags

The base of the place cards is a clothes pin. Some of them I painted dark red, some I made gold and glittery, some are painted plain gold, and some I left alone. The tags are from Papertrey Ink and I cut them short and used the tops.

Cute right? So easy and very festive. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful week!

Hello! Well Halloween has been over for a few days now and I am already in the Christmas spirit! Yes, I am one of those annoying Christmas people who LOVES cheesy holiday movies, puts my decorations up early, and listens to Christmas music until January is over. So naturally, I have a couple of holiday themed cards to show you today!! I will be breaking down the card I posted yesterday as well as one more card I made with the same theme. Now I am typically a mass photo card person around this time of year so any Christmas cards I make, I will be using alongside of hostess gifts, etc. Let’s dive in! Here’s numero uno: >>

To make this card, I first embossed a tag from a past Studio Calico card kit with brown powder and a Hero Arts woodgrain stamp. I attached a paper pieced holly leaf to it with a bit of twine and set them aside. I used dimensional adhesive to attach a trimmed slice of green textured cardstock to the kraft card base (from Papertrey Ink) and adhered the tag and holly on top of it. I finished it off with a red die cut ornament on the left side and I was finished! I love how this card turned out, I think it is so fun! Onto numero dos! >>

This is a SUPER simple card! To make it I embossed gold woodgrain on the entire PTI kraft card base first. I cut and adhered pieces of solar white cardstock (also from Papertrey Ink) and green textured cardstock together and then onto the card base. And finally, I attached the die cut “JOY” on top with dimensional adhesive. Anddddd… done! SO simple, right?

Well, that’s all I have for you today! Have a wonderful week and I will see you next Tuesday! Happy creating!
