Neat & Tangled July Release and Giveaways - Day 4



Today is the final day of our July release reveals!  All products will be available tomorrow at 8 AM EST in the Neat & Tangled store.  Today we're showing off my new cover plate and stencil, Modern Triangles.

I teased the cover in one of my Monday cards and I have a couple more cards to share with you featuring the cover plate.

For this first one, I cut the cover from cream cardstock, and then randomly inlaid some of the gold pieces I saved from my Monday card into the triangle shapes.



The sentiment is from the You're a Gem set and was embossed using Princess Gold embossing powder.



For this next card, I dry embossed the cover plate, I love this look, it almost looks like one of those WRMK 3D embossing folders.  Normally, I take my photos head on, but this angled view gives a much better look at the dimension from the embossed piece.



I finished this one very simply using my Together stamp/die set that we highlighted on Monday.



There's also a stencil in this design.  For this card, I first inked over the stencil with Evergreen Bough Distress Ink.  Then I used three Prismacolor colored pencils to add a bit of shading to the three parts of the triangles.  This is not fancy shading, just to give the parts a bit of dimension, but as a whole it really makes those triangles pop.

I wanted to keep the focus on the background and stick with a one-layer look, so I added another sentiment from the You're a Gem set which was stamped in Versafine and then clear embossed a few times to give it a puffier/glossier look.  I thought the sentiment needed some grounding, so I added those dots from the Good Vibes set.



OK, time to head over to the Neat & Tangled blog to check out what the rest of the team created and to enter to win today's featured products.

I'm also going to be choosing some winners from comments this week here on the blog and on Instagram for my new release products, so be sure to leave a comment here and each day this week, and then head over to Instagram (@mprantner) for details on how to win there.

Winners will be announced tomorrow!
