neat & tangled Birthday Bash!



Aren't you having fun with all the great birthday festivities over on Neat & Tangled and the Little Tangles Challenge blog?!


I was up on the Little Tangles blog on Monday and wanted to share my cards on my blog.

One of my VERY fav is the Sunburst image.  At just under 3x4, it's a great size to layer goodies onto:


I have fussy cut the Just Thinking of You cloud and have it on foam dots.  

**tip**
Having it spill onto the kraft card base gives the card visual interest.



The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Sketchy Cupcakes set.  

**tip**
Selectively inking up sentiments can give your sets a whole new look.  

Next up is Ink Splash


I teamed it up with Swirly Twirly Tags & Party Dots.   There's something about the Ink Spash image that always has me grabbing for the neon inks!  


**tip**
Ink Splash is the perfect way to add a pop of color to your project!

I decided to fussy cut the same Amy Tangerine yellow blooms that coordinate with the chevron panel.  I wanted that Neon Pink Splash to **sing**!!

I always love to see craft spaces and storage techniques.

I thought I'd share my stamp storage:


It's a variation of Jennifer McGuire's.  I use THESE Office Depot clear pockets.  If you go with my system, make sure you bring your phone or bring the screen print from their online store, it's cheaper than retail and they have been price matching for me.  I use THESE bins from Target, I buy them retail.

A big shout out to Danielle for her 1 year celebration AND a big woot woot for Ren-Yi who has been rockin' the blog posts!

Thanks for stoppin' by!

Oooooh...these are fabulous cards Amy.
Off the page does help to pull the eye to the sentiment.
And I love how you've used those neon colours on your second card.

I need some storage bins for my stamps. I think organization may be the key to actually using them. I currently keep everything in one large container.

Audrey Pettit said...
