Neat & Tangled October Release - Day 4 - Giveaways



Have you been enjoying release week so far?  Today is our final day of reveals and I'm really excited about today's products.

Today I'm showcasing my two new stencils, Polka and Scoops.

These are great basic stencils, but I actually designed them to be used in conjunction with my Scandinavian Prints set.

When I designed the Scandinavian Prints stamp set, I really wanted to be able to use it for just that, creating prints.  And I've definitely done that, but this makes it so much easier!  Instead of eyeballing, the stencil does the hard work of spacing for you.  It really makes it easy, and you can quickly create much larger prints for say, layouts or giftwrap.

I'm using Altenew inks for each of these cards.  This first one features the Scoops stencil.  I used a basic ink blender to color the scoops and then added the details through stamping.  I cut a panel using my new Scalloped dies and then stamped, fussy cut, and foam mounted our Hello You sentiment.



A few sequins finished it off.

Of course I needed to use Polka too.



This time I kept the colors very soft and then added this Big Hugs die cut sentiment from Danielle (which was cut three times and adhered for dimension).



These are so easy and fun to create, I could seriously stencil/stamp prints for hours.

I did throw together one more card though, this time just using Polka as a basic stencil.  I love that the openings are far enough apart that you don't have to do any masking or be particularly careful when using multiple colors.



Just a super quick card featuring our Awesome stamps and dies that I'm planning to mass produce for Carina's birthday thank yous (that are SO overdue it's embarassing).

OK, that's all for me today.  Don't forget to leave comments and here and on the Neat & Tangled blog.  I'll announce some winners tomorrow!
