Neat & Tangled with Freckled Fawn



This week Neat & Tangled is hopping with Freckled Fawn.  I love the Freckled Fawn store, so I've been really looking forward to this collaboration.

As soon as I saw these Grey & White Glitter Clouds, I knew I was going to make a card with them using our Clouds stamp set.  I wanted to keep the card very soft, so I stamped three of the clouds with Versamark, doing a bit of masking, and then adding Perfect Pearls.

After determining where my cloud would sit, I added just a bit of this thin pink/gold washi where the heart opening was.



At the top of the card I added some of that same pink/gold washi, a bit of a classic white doily and some thin strips of patterned/glittered vellum which were stitched down with some silver thread.

Another thin strip of vellum was added at the bottom of the panel.  The resin cloud was added using Glossy Accents, which I also spread over the washi to give it that glossy look and deepen the color a bit.

I stamped/embossed the sentiment with Liquid Platinum embossing powder and added a few Crystal Clear sequins to finish things off.

I couldn't resist making another card, my first Christmas card of the year.



I saw these Rhinestone Star stickers, and at just $1.00, they were too good a deal to pass up.  I thought they would be perfect with the Time Warp background, which was stamped with Versamark and then dusted with Perfect Pearls.



The sentiment is from Winter Trees, and embossed, and then it was just a matter of adding the stars.  The stars are the perfect size for card making and add some great sparkle!

That's all for me today.  Please head over to both the Neat & Tangled blog and the Freckled Fawn blog.  There are giveaways at both places, so you'll want to make sure to comment throughout the week.

P.S. I'm trying out a new background paper for my photos.  What do you think?
