Neat & Tangled November Release: Day Two

Happy Tuesday crafters! I am so happy you stopped back again today for some more Neat & Tangled inspiration!

releaseweek-01

This week I am sharing inspiration using the newest products from Neat & Tangled’s November release, and today I have a video featuring the Scandinavian Prints Christmas stamp set!

This stamp set is one of my new favorites! I love the whimsical style of these trees, as well as the simplistic stamp layering pieces that allow you to build one of a kind trees!

An added bonus with this set is that it can be used outside of the holiday season too, for cute wintry thinking of you cards! Who doesn’t love receiving a heart warming card from a friend, especially during the long, cold winters that will soon be upon us!

I created a full set of these cards in a variety of different colors; proof that holiday cards don’t always have to be “traditionally” colored!

For inks, I’ve chosen to work with one of my favorite ink brands; Altenew Crisp Inks. These, -as well as the Simon Says Stamp inks- are my most loved ink brands. I used a bunch of color combos, which I will list out for you (all inks are from Altenew unless otherwise noted):

green: Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, Green Leaf (Simon Says Stamp), Evergreen

turquoise green: Mountain Mist, Volcano Lake, Lagoon, Emerald

pink: Rose Quartz, Puffy Heart, Purple Wine, Cosmic Berry

bright red: Cotton Candy, Coral Berry, Ruby Red, Grapevine

rustic red: Blush, Rouge, Crimson, Velvet

blue: Sea Glass, Caribbean Sky, Persian Blue, Sapphire

These were really fun to make! The reason I made so many was in support of the Caring Hearts Card Drive. This card drive is spearheaded by Vera Yates; she is a very talented crafter and I think that the card drive that she has been hosting for the past 7 years is a great cause to support! The purpose of the drive is to collect Holiday cards that are then distributed to nursing/assisted living homes around the world as a way to bring care, love and kindness into the lives of those that will be receiving the cards. For complete details, including where to submit cards, etc., please visit Vera’s blog HERE.
