Neat & Tangled November Release Week - Day 3 - Giveaways


Hey everyone!  Welcome back for Day 3 of our November release!

Today we're revealing my newest coverplate and stencil.  I love that we're able to bring you both.  I'm a sucker for a good coverplate, but those can be pricey.  If you're on a budget, the stencil isn't quite the same, but won't break the bank.

I showed off the coverplate on Monday (with that embossed background), so today I thought I would take the stencil out for a spin.

Super quick and easy.  I used a blender to lightly apply ink (pigment ink would definitely work, but I am partial to dye ink - you will need to experiment, as some dye inks are very fast drying and might now work as well, I'm using WPlus9 dye ink), in and around the small stars.  Then I sprinkled some Liquid Platinum embossing powder over it and heat set.  

Since I didn't ink heavily it's not a very solid embossing, but I wanted more of a fade out, so this works really well.  I did go back with an embossing pen to add some extra emphasis/highlighting around the edges of the stars and then re-embossed.


For my focal point, I stamped, colored, and die cut the ornament from one of tomorrow's featured sets.  I love the size of this ornament and that the lines are so nice and thick it's super hard to color outside of the lines ;)  

OK, be sure to leave a comment, I'll be selecting some winners from commenters on my release week posts to receive some of my new products.  To be entered leave a comment.  For an extra chance, you can follow me on IG (@mprantner) and leave a comment with your IG name.

Be sure to head over to the Neat & Tangled blog to check out what the rest of the team created and to enter to win a giveaway there as well.

See you back here tomorrow for the last day of reveals.  I've got one more thing to share with you guys!

  17. I'll definitely be trying this technique with a stencil... good to know WPlus9 inks will work too, such pretty colors. Now that I've seen how big this ornament stamp is and how it can be a focal point by itself. I want it! You're killing my wallet.
