Welcome to day three of November Release Week from Neat and Tangled!! I am so excited to show you my project for today! πŸ™‚

by Stephanie Gold for Neat and Tangled Radiating Star Stencil Joyful Sentiments

First of all, the sentiments in the new Joyful Sentiments set are BEAUTIFUL. I’m obsessed with them all. For this card I used the simple and elegant, “joyful and triumphant” with some accent crosses in the background.

And now for this incredible focal point. This was created with the new Radiating Star Stencil which I first used directly on cardstock with a simple Texture Paste. Once dry, I spray painted it in Metallic Gold and then trimmed it down to size. Didn’t it turn out gorgeous?? I’m over the moon with how it turned out. πŸ™‚

And just like that it’s Papertrey release week again!! First off, a huge thank you to Julie, Lizzie, and everyone who joined us for the very first Release Party Live! Event when launching Betsy’s latest Make It Market Kit. It was such a blast!!

Second, I wanted to let you all know that I have been crazy sick on and off for like 3 weeks and now I’m fighting a sinus infection, so if you’ve been wondering why I’ve been so quiet on the platforms, I am just trying to get my family through each day right now haha. I’ll be back in good shape soon though I’m sure!

Alrighty!! Onto the fun! I am pleased to be able to showcase the latest Year of Psalms set with you today and this first card may be my ultimate fave.

I obviously went for a very clean and simple vibe and I honestly couldn’t be happier with it. The twine wrapped around the holly adds some earthiness and the holly itself is the perfect pop of color.

I decided to only use part of the sentiment because I thought it worked perfectly by itself and helped add to the simplistic design.

My next card is super simple as well as a perfectly flat card!

I used the tree from the newest Traveler’s Journal: December set to create the large tree by spritzing the stamp with water before pressing directly onto watercolor paper. Let those water bubbles work for you! As they dry, you get a beautiful texture.

For my last card I put together a much less simple design. I wanted the tag to act as a faux present feel and I think the Folded Tag Die gave it the perfect amount of movement.

The sentiments are split up so the first one is the focal point and the second one makes the perfect background texture by repeatedly stamping in a soft, subtle color.

Hello friends… πŸ˜‰ I am just coming back from an amazing vacation back to nature and away from technology (well needed) and feeling refreshed! I already miss the trees and creeks but it’s always a good time to get back into the craft room. πŸ™‚

I have a card for you today that I am slightly obsessed with. I finally caved and bought some of the Wet Paint sets from Papertrey Ink and they did NOT disappoint. I combined them with more of Maggie Holmes Open Book collection for a fun and girly card accented with large florals and gold, glittery leaves. I am one to give away most of the cards I make but I may be holding on to this little one for a while… it just makes me happy! πŸ™‚

I hope you all have been enjoying your summers! I am looking forward to the school year starting in a week or so and hopefully having a little more time making cards. πŸ™‚ Happy creating!

Xo, Stephanie

Hi there! Happy Tuesday! Today’s card uses a floral piece of ephemera from the Maggie Holmes Open Book Collection and some sequins from a Studio Calico add on kit. The gray/white wash wood pattern paper in the background is from the SC add on kit as well. The stamps are from a limited edition freebie stamp set, Filled With Joy, from Papertrey Ink, and are stamped in Hero Arts black.

I’m such a girl and I love flowers so I adore this piece of ephemera. I had to make it a focal point and let it be! And of course… add gold accents. πŸ˜‰

Hope you have a wonderful week!
