For this card, I changed up the colour palette to something more muted and combined it with a favourite technique of mine – rotational stamping. Whenever I do this, I always try to put some guidelines down for when I actually stamp the image.
This helps with the end result, but you can always try to go by eye instead for a less measured look! I took the largest triangle from the set and began stamping it in the four ink colours I’d chosen onto a white card base, ensuring one impression overlapped the next. This creates the additional colours in between 😉
I used a MISTI tool for the stamping, though a large acrylic block would also work. Once I’d completed the stamping, I erased the guidelines and stamped a sentiment from the Art Deco set with onyx black Versafine ink.
I set the card base aside and die-cut a circle out of a panel of white cardstock and foam mounted to the card front, revealing the stamped triangles and sentiment through the aperture.

There are so many different ways you could use the Triangle Pattern Builder set, and I opted to go for a simple, geometric look for my background panel. I began by choosing a colour palette, ranging from a light blue through to a dark purple.
Starting with the lightest shade of ink (light blue), I stamped the largest triangle from the set onto a panel of white cardstock. Then I took a slightly darker shade (cyan) and a slightly smaller triangle image from the set, and stamped over the first impressions.
I repeated this step a couple more times, each time with a darker shade of ink and a smaller triangle – the end result was definitely worth the effort, however, I felt like it needed another layer…so I stamped the large background image from Art Deco on top of the whole pattern in the light blue shade of ink.
I trimmed the panel down to the same size as my card base and the stamped part of the sentiment onto it with black dye ink. The rest of the sentiment was stamped onto a strip of black cardstock with Versamark ink, sprinkled with white embossing powder and heat set.

Hello, hello! It’s the third day of the Winnie & Walter January / February release, and you’re in for another treat!
Day 3 is for the premiere of Big Hugs with Evelin T Designs stamps and cutaways, and Sketchy Thoughts stamps and cutaways – here’s my card:
I stamped the various speech bubbles from the Sketchy Thoughts set with Distress Inks and then stamped some co-ordinating sentiments from the same set, but with Versafine Onyx Black Ink.
The stamped panel was then trimmed down to slightly smaller than my card base and foam mounted to the front.
For a bit of interest, I added some cork and wood embellishments along with a sprinkling of sequins.
Don’t forget to check out the projects from Julie on the Winnie & Walter blog, along with the rest of the Winnie & Walter talent. The new release will be available at 22.00 CST on Friday, 3rd of February!

This set has got to be one of the most versatile ones I have ever used, especially when paired with non-seasonal colours – I opted to go back to my trusted Distress Inks and stamp one of the outline tree images with rainbow colours.
I began by die-cutting an aperture out of a panel of white cardstock using the Pixelated Heart die and stamping a sentiment from the same set with Versafine Onyx Black ink underneath it. I then marked up some guidelines on a white card base for where I would stamp the tree in rotation in rainbow colours.
Once the stamping was complete, I foam mounted the die-cut panel to the card base, allowing the design to show through. To finish, added some Gold Mix sequins.

Today, the Winnie & Walter Design Team are showcasing more of the November Release on this awesome blog hop, and you have a chance to win $30.00 credit to the w&w shop! Here’s my card:
I created this really simple wreath design using the In Bloom: Frenchy’s Florals set by Angelica Suarez. I drew around an oval die on a panel of white cardstock to create a frame for my wreath, and then stamped the sentiment in the centre with Versafine Onyx Black Ink.
Starting at the top of the oval, I then stamped some of the floral images all the way around the frame using Distress Inks. For a bit of dimension, I used the ‘Rock ‘n’ ‘Roll’ technique to pick up two ink colours onto the stamp.
I stamped some of the smaller images to fill in the spaces once I’d stamped the entire wreath and then added a bit of sparkle with sequins.
To finish, I foam mounted the panel to a white card base.
For a chance to win a prize, follow along on the rest of the blog hop, leaving comments along the way by Monday, November 21, 2016 at noon CST- five randomly chosen commenters will receive $30.00 credit to the w&w shop.

It’s the third day of the Neat & Tangled November release, and we are showcasing some more fabulous products!
Day 3 is for the Star Coverplate and Stencil, both equally as gorgeous as each other. I played with the coverplate to whip up a simple birthday card:
I began by creating a Distress Ink background and heat set to dry. I then ran the Star coverplate through my die-cutting machine three times with white cardstock and glued each piece together to form a thicker embellishment.
I then trimmed a section out of the centre and adhered it to the Distress Ink panel. I foam mounted this to a white card base and then used the Journalling Alpha Numbers to die-cut the 45 and adhered it down.
I also ran the coverplate through some Copper foil cardstock and used some of the pieces to fill in the design on the card front.
To finish up, I sprinkled with a few Merlot Mix sequins. Here’s my second card, this time using the Star Stencil:
I taped the stencil down on top of a panel of white cardstock and simply sponged through two shades of Distress Ink, being careful not to take the ink all the way to the edges.
I then adhered the panel down to a white card base and looked for matching pattern paper for the tree embellishments. These were die-cut using the Scandinavian Christmas Prints dies and foam mounted to the card front.
The sentiment comes from the co-ordinating Scandinavian Christmas Prints set and was stamped with Versamark onto a piece of black cardstock, sprinkled with white embossing powder and heat set.
The sentiment was trimmed down and also foam mounted to the card front. To finish, I added some Gold Mix sequins.

Hello there! Time to showcase another gorgeous stamp set for the Neat & Tangled November Release!
Day 2 is for Elfs and their Shelf, designed by Elena Roussakis, and its such a cute stamp set – here’s my first card:
I went for a clean and simple look and only used one stamp from the set. I began by creating some coloured swatches by simply sponging various Distress Inks onto a panel of white cardstock. I then used the co-ordinating snow globe die from the set and repeatedly cut the shape out.
I stamped the matching snow globe image onto the die-cut pieces and arranged them on a white card base before stamping the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black Ink.
I then foam mounted all the snow globes to the card front to finish off.
Here’s my second card:
I began by creating a background pattern by repeatedly stamping the largest, solid flower from Paper Cut Flowers with a rainbow assortment of Distress Ink onto a panel of white cardstock.
I die-cut the panel down to the same size as my card base, adhered it straight down and moved on to the focal element – I stamped the presents from Elfs and their Shelf onto some white cardstock and simply coloured them in with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens.
I also used the gold metallic shades from the Finetec Mica Watercolour Paint set for a bit of interest. I then fussy cut the presents out, die-cut the shelf out of some kraft carsdtock and foam mounted both to the card front.
To finish, I stamped the sentiment below the shelf 😉

Welcome to the start of November release week for Neat & Tangled!
For Day 1, I’m showcasing the new Merry & Bright die – here’s my first card:
I began by creating a watercolour background using a flower shaped acrylic block. I covered the block with some spots of Dylusions Ink sprays and stamped straight down onto a panel of white cardstock. Before removing the block, I misted lightly with water to help the ink run a little.
On lifting the acrylic block, the ink that was trapped underneath began to spread, so I quickly heat set the panel. I used a paper towel to mop up any excess ink.
Once the panel was dry, I used the new Star stencil to create a subtle texture over the watercolour blob – I laid it down and pounced some Versamark Ink through to the panel underneath. I removed the stencil and the lightly brushed over some Gold Perfect Pearls.
Once I was happy, I trimmed the panel down and mounted it to a white card base. I then die-cut the Merry & Bright sentiment three times out of some white cardstock, adhered them together to create a thicker embellishment and adhered it to the card front. To finish, I added a couple of sequins from the Gold Mix selection. Here’s my second card:
I did a little double partial die-cutting with this one using a couple of circle dies to create the outer ring so that the sequins can peek through 😉
I partially die-cut the circle elements out of a panel of white cardstock before moving on to die-cutting the sentiment from the middle, holding on to all the small pieces within the letters.
I then proceeded to turn the die-cut panel into a shaker card, filling it with the Gold Dust Sparkly Shaker Mix from Lucy’s Little Things.
After foam mounting the shaker element to a white card base, I also added a few ink splats using some gold watercolour paint.

Just popping by to share a card using Neat and Tangled’s Celebrate dies. This one was super easy to create – I can see myself using this method to create a whole stack of cards, each one being slightly different from the next.
I began by making a background panel using Distress Inks and a few splashes of water. I smushed a couple of the smaller ink cubes onto my craft mat, spritzed with water and swiped through a panel of white cardstock.
I didn’t want an overly inky background, so I made sure some parts stayed white – I only needed enough to hold the die-cut sentiment. Once I was happy with my inky splodges, I heat set the panel, trimmed it down to the same size as my card base and then die-cut the sentiment through the middle.
I wanted some gold to show through behind the die-cut panel, so I adhered a piece of gold foil cardstock to a white card base and then foam mounted the inky panel on top.
To finish, I added a couple of sequins from the Gold Mix.
