Neat & Tangled October Release, Day 4: Big Hugs

Hey everyone!

Today is the fourth day of the October release from Neat & Tangled, and it ends with a fabulous die and a couple of stencils!

I’m showcasing the Big Hugs die:

I can already see how versatile this die is going to be, just by how easily it can be added to a card, a scrapbook layout or whatever you like!

I created some background panels using other Neat and Tangled stencils along with a vibrant choice of Dylusions Ink sprays for this card – gave me the perfect backdrop to this cute sentiment!

For the second card, I used another stencil but combined it with Cosmo Cricket’s Pixie Paint in the colour Harbor:

I spritzed a panel of watercolour liberally with water, laid down a stencil and then lightly dusted some of the Pixie Paint powder. To keep the paint moving, I spritzed more water and then slowly lifted the stencil away.

I quickly heat set the panel, trimmed it down and adhered it to a white card base. The sentiment was die-cut out of some copper foil cardstock and foam mounted to the front 😉

I was going to add sequins but decided to let the sentiment be the hero on these cards – hope you’ve enjoyed the October Release from Neat and Tangled this week! Pop by the Neat & Tangled Blog to see what the rest of the DT has created – all the sets that we have showcased this week will be available in the shop tomorrow at 8am EST!

Thanks for looking 😉

    I love how the Big Hugs die is bold enough to hold its own against your fabulous colourful backgrounds. It’s an amazing die.
