Neat and Tangled Day 2

Hello!  This is Amy from the Neat & Tangled Design Team!  I'm so excited to be sharing a quick card set that I made using the wonderful MISTI along with Heart of Gold stamp set by Neat & Tangled.

For my particular project, the benefits of stamping a set of cards quickly is a huge plus.  I'm one of those people that find mass production not high on my to-do list. 

TIP:  I started off with a set of card panels that have been die cut so they are all the same size.


With the huge trend of watercoloring, the MISTI is a fabulous tool to use.  The texture of watercolor paper tends to make stamping a challenge.


I used Mowed Lawn Distress Ink with the heart image.


I was able to quickly stamp a set of the panels.


I did a quick wash of water on the panel and needed to finish off the card with the sentiment.


I ended up stamping the sentiment twice because the first round just wasn't crisp enough.  


I ended up stamping the sentiment twice because the first round just wasn't crisp enough.  


I finished off my card with splatters of gold and bundled them up with chunky wool yarn.  It's a quick and fun gift that was a snap to make.


A big shout out to Iliana for collaborating with Neat and Tangled!

    One of my goals is to make multiples of cards this year, so I am feeling TOTALLY INSPIRED => THANK YOU for sharing!!!
    It goes without saying that a MISTI is a MUST-HAVE tool!!!
    ... I confess that I don't stamp as often as I should because I struggle getting even, crisp images => I will definitely be getting one this year ... she says as she peeks at her husband from the corner of her eye, madly confessing to the world :)
    THANK YOU for this AWESOME INKY Blog Hop!!!

  24. What a cute stamp and card! Neat & Tangled has a lot of creative stamps. It's always great to have new companies with new ideas for us obsessed crafters. And the MISTI....where do I begin!!????? The misti product certainly lives up to its name! Nothing but amazing reviews from everyone who has it. Continued success Iliana! I really hope I can get one eventually. What a time saver and helps make our cards better quality because the stamping is perfect if you use the misti. Great job!

  27. I always use my Misti for watercoloring. Only way to get a decent impression. The sentiment would also look great embossed in gold. Or you could emboss the heart in gold before watercoloring. So many ideas...so little time. :-) Thanks for sharing.
