Full Card Shaker + Distress Ink Techniques + Neat & Tangled 5th Birthday

Full Card Shaker + Distress Ink Techniques + Neat & Tangled 5th Birthday | Nina-Marie Design

Hello everyone! I am so excited to be guesting today for Neat & Tangled’s 5th Birthday celebration! I cannot believe it’s been five years already since Danielle started one of my favorite stamp companies.

For their birthday, Neat & Tangled release a bunch of awesome new products, which I am using on my cards today. I wanted to use my Distress Inks to make a layered background behind a full-card shaker. Full-card shakers are a really fun card style; have you ever tried it?

The Distress Inks were fun to pair with the Balloons Duo stencil in making my background. I used Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed for the colors. To make the background, I started by ink smooshing a layer of the colors onto watercolor paper. Then I took the same three colors and watercolored in the balloons of the stencil. Because the Distress Inks are translucent, you get a really unique blend of colors.

For my sentiment, I used the new Hooray stamp set. I wanted to make the “hooray” word stand out from the colorful background, so I triple heat embossed the sentiment for a cool, dimensional effect! It’s hard to capture on camera, but in real life the difference is noticeable.

Inside the shaker is filled with the Like Magic mix of of sequins, which are SO awesome. These are a unique sequin because they pick up the colors they are paired with. I love how gorgeous they look!
