Neat & Tangled October Release - Day 3 - Giveaways


Cowbells are big in our house.  Carina has been asking for one since we took her to her first professional hockey game last year (she did get one for her birthday this year and the jury is out as to whether or not that was actually a good idea).  And of course the hubby and I are big fans of SNL's iconic cowbell skit.

So, I decided the world needed a cowbell stamp set.  

For those of you who are in need of a good set for masculine cards, this set will work perfectly.

I kept this card pretty simple and resisted the urge to 'pretty it up'.  

The cowbell and sentiments were stamped in Versafine and then painted with my Kuretake Gansai watercolors.  My set has some metallics in it, so I was able to use the bronze color to give it a little shine.  


I also added some bits of patterned paper to the top and bottom borders of the stamped panel as embellishment before I popped it up on the card.

OK, that's all for me today.  I'll be giving away this set at the end of the week, so be sure to leave a comment and then head over to the Neat & Tangled blog because Danielle has some giveaways over there too!

  3. This is one of the funniest stamp sets I've seen in a while, and it is a must-have for me. Thanks so much for making it! I agree that the world needs it. I live in a house of guys (2 sons and hubby) and this will make a fantastic birthday card--maybe with a balloon tied to the cowbell and a party hat on it. And your card and story about your daughter wanting a cowbell are great!

  12. I have to admit like a few people out there I do not understand the cowbell symbolism. But regardless its fun! I have enjoyed seeing how various DT have used this stamp set and at times altered it to look like a grater.
