Neat and Tangled Birthday Blog Hop....

Happy 5th Birthday to Neat and Tangled and my sweet friend, Danielle!  I am so excited to be joining in for this birthday hop.  If you are following along on the hop, you should have stopped in here after the amazing, Laura Bassen.  

Danielle has several fun new stamps and dies this month that are now available in her shop.  Click HERE to head on over there and check things out!

The new stamp set called Wild Ones along with the Hooray dies were calling to me.  I thought they would be so cute together so I created this CAS card...

Untitled

To start off, I die cut the hooray in a pink glitter paper and the out line in white cardstock.  I added some striped washi to the bottom of the card base and then popped the card front up on foam tape.  I added in the "it's your day!" sentiment in Versafine black onyx ink.  I popped the hooray up on more foam tape and then colored up that adorable turtle and tucked him down in behind the hooray.  

Untitled

Because I had to have a matching envie, I embossed the envelope with the hooray as well.  I created a video showing how easy this technique is.  You can head on over to my YouTube channel by clicking HERE and check it out.  :)

Untitled

Another new stamp from Neat and Tangled this month is called All the Sprinkles.  It is an adorable stamp to use for easy backgrounds or in this case....a wine tag!

Untitled

I die cut the wine tag and then heat embossed All the Sprinkles with white embossing powder.  I masked off the top of the wine tag and then did a rainbow of ink blending down the tag.

Next, I die cut the hooray die in white cardstock and the outline in vellum.  I loved how the vellum looked but realized it needed to be popped up on the tag, so I die cut another of the hooray dies in fun foam.  This way, the fun foam doesn't show because its hidden in behind the vellum and under the white cardstock hooray.  I also realized after the fact, that it needed some sparkle.  So I covered it in stickles.  Stickles make everything better!  :)

Untitled

I hope you have enjoyed my projects for today.  Your next stop on the hop is over to Kathy Racoosin. I can't wait to see what she has created for this hop!  You can also head over to the Neat and Tangled blog to see a full schedule for their 5th Birthday Hop!  There will be daily stops all the way to August 11th.  Don't forget to leave comments along the way.  There are prizes too!  One $100 gift certificate and 2 $50 gift certificates.  Names will be drawn from all the comments along the hop.

So glad you stopped in today!  Have a great day!
