Neat & Tangled February Release, Day 1: Hope Anchors

Hey everyone…

Today see’s the start of some exciting new release stamp sets from Neat & Tangled! Day 1 begins with Hope Anchors, which is a beautiful handwritten sentiment…

Here’s my first card:

This card features a watercoloured panel created from Distress Inks and then spritzed with a Perfect Pearls Mist. I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black, mounted the panel at a slight angle and added some translucent sequins. I hand drew a frame around the sentiment.

Here’s the second card:

For this one, I started by stamping the large diamonds from Neat & Tangled’s Sparkle and Shine set around the border of my card base in Distress Inks and Delicata Golden Glitz (the gold doesn’t show up too well, unfortunately).

On a separate panel, I stamped the sentiment and cut around the right hand side of it for some interest. Again, I spritzed with a Perfect Pearls mist, foam mounted to the card base and added some pearl embellishments.

I hope you’ll pop by the Neat & Tangled Blog to see what the rest of the DT has created – there’s also a giveaway! All the sets that we are showcasing this week will be released on Thursday, 20 February at 8am EST in the shop!

Thanks for stopping by…

    Wonderful job on both cards. The watercolor panel and your frame look fabulous with the stamp. I like your card design and the cut out sentiment of card 2. Beautiful diamond background. Great job!
