Today’s post is all about the new Bite Size Tags stamps and dies as well as the super cute Truffle Tote box die. I wanted to try a really modern styled box to show you how versatile these stamps and dies are.

The black and red shows off a very NYC modern bakery feel while it can also make a perfect Valentine’s treat as well. The addition of the glittered clothespin adds just enough bling and extra texture without going over kill for this style.

Thank so much for stopping by and I will see you back here tomorrow for one last inspiration explosion! 🙂 Much love all.

Alright N&T lovers! Today is the last new release day before everything goes on sale in the Neat & Tangled Shop tomorrow, Friday, January 6, 2017 at 8am EST!

My project for today is showcasing the Floral Heart Stamps and Dies. All. The. Heart. Eyes.

by Stephanie Gold for Neat & Tangled Floral Heart Stamps and Dies Design Team

I stamped the heart and sentiment in black ink and colored the wreath in with colored pencils. I partially die cut the edge off the left side of the heart and trimmed my cardstock to let it hang over. I also impressed both the smaller and larger dies on the heart wreath to create an embossed outline look. I stamped the heart wreath again on pink cardstock with pink ink to create a bit of texture and adhered it on the bottom using dimensional adhesive. The card is finished off with some of the new Bubble Gum sequins. 🙂

Hey guys!!! Welcome back for Day 2 of the Lil Inker Designs New Release Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from the incredibly talented Karen Baker’s blog!! Today I am going all things TRIBAL! These stamps, dies, and papers are incredibly fun!! I had a blast just playing with them and had to calm myself down a bit on making ALL THE THINGS! Ha! Here we go!

This new paper pack is called Tribal Chic and it coordinates perfectly with the Tribal Chic Stamp Set. The “Love Ya” sentiment you see here is from the Tribal Chic Stamp Set as well and the “happy birthday” and “best wishes” sentiments are from the Vintage Label Sentiment Stamp Set. I made these tags using the Lil Inker Anytime Tags 2 Dies. How fun are these tribal papers?!

For this next card I used the new Duel Stitched Triangle Dies and stamped underneath with the Tribal Chic Stamps. I popped the card base up for added dimension and stamped the sentiment right on top.

I also used these triangle dies and tribal stamps to put together some garland and a cake topper!!

I love all things tribal so this is right up my alley!! 🙂

These next two cards went all in with the tribal theme. This Many Thanks card is one of my favorites. 🙂 I used a watercolor and ink mixing technique to get a bit of a grunge outcome. I finished off the card below with a bit of twine to add to the earthy tribal feel after stamping the pattern on an angle.

For my last card today I layered a few of the Tribal Chic Pattern Papers on an angle with dimensional adhesive and popped the sentiment up even higher! I added a bit of silver thread underneath for added texture to complete it.

Oh my goodness, you guys!! I have been keeping this secret for so long and it has been SO HARD!!! I am SO very proud to announce that I am a new member of the Lil Inker Design Team!!!! (shrieking girly squeals of joy… don’t mind me…)

You should have arrived here from the super talented and lovely Chrissy Larson’s blog! I have been working all month getting new release projects ready for this hop (and I may have gotten a bit carried away) and I am so happy to share a few of them with you today!!

I thought I’d start out the hop using the Vintage Flower Stamps and Coordinating Dies! These flowers have so much detail, they are absolutely gorgeous! I used a teal ink to stamp the flowers and then wet a paint brush to blend the color in a bit. I used the same technique on the leaves with a green ink. The “happy birthday” sentiment is from the Vintage Label Sentiment Stamps and I made the background with Lil Inker’s Dotted Scallop Cover Up Die which is from a previous release.

I used the same techniques for this second card and finished it off with the Diamond Lace Cover Up Die (also from a previous release).

Aren’t those flower stamps beautiful?? For my last project today I made a little pillow box (I LOVE to use these as gift card holders because you can dress them up and make them so dang cute!!) and fancied it up for a nice gift for Mother’s Day or the like. I used the same Vintage Flower Stamp and Die sets and also the Vintage Label Sentiments and coordinating Die. I love this Label Sentiment set. You could use that baby on cards, on gifts as a gift tag, for scrapbooking, it is SO versatile.
