Neat & Tangled: Kindness Matters

October 5, 2012


It’s the last day of release week and we have an awesome stamp set that’s perfect for friendship cards. I made a CAS card with this stamp set using a technique that I have used in awhile: heat embossing as a resist.

N&T: Kindness Matters Release

I love this color combination – it’s so sweet! I also found a few brads from American Crafts that’s perfect for this color combination and used it to embellish the card.

Here’s a photo tutorial of how I did the speech bubbles.

N&T: Kindness Matters Release - Steps

1. Stamp sentiment on scrap paper. Draw speech bubble around sentiment.
2. Cut out speech bubble.
3. Stamp sentiment and heat emboss in white on cardstock. Draw speech bubble onto cardstock using black outline.
4. Using negative from step 2, offset the mask and sponge directly onto the cardstock creating a solid speech bubble.

This concludes our October release.  Don’t forget to head over to Neat & Tangled blog to enter today’s giveaway – the winner will receive a Neat & Tangled stamp set of their choice. This week’s featured stamp sets will be released on October 5 at 8am EST in the shop!

    What an inventor you are! I love the way you did those speech bubbles and thought surely I would find the stamps somewhere on the internet! Hope I can approximate your speech bubbles…I’m not too handy in the drawing department!
