Neat & Tangled Reveal Day #1

Hello there! Welcome to day one of the Neat & Tangled May Release Week! All the new products in the release are fabulous, and I cannot wait to show you all the projects I have been creating with them!


One of today’s reveals is the Big Top Birthday stamp and die set; aren’t these just the sweetest images????

Big Top Birthday_1

I stamped the characters onto white cardstock and used my Copic markers to color them. They are also die cut using the coordinating Big Top Birthday die set.

The background was created with the new Neat & Tangled Hexastar stencil and I love how it coordinates so well with the Hexastar cover plate die that came out last March. I used distress inks to add color to my background and

I finished the card off with new sequin mix colors that are brand new this month from Neat & Tangled! I also tossed in a few stars from a Lucy’s Cards sequin mix… I love how the sequins add to the festive appearance of this cute card!
