Neat & Tangled + A Blog Named Hero!


Click HERE for the Essentials by Ellen Holiday 2015 Release Blog Hop







Last week, Neat & Tangled collaborated with A Blog Named Hero!  The challenge was Metallic!

Here's how I was inspired:

cardstock:  chickaniddy crafts silver surfer, stampin' up night of navy, papertrey ink vellum  paper:  chickaniddy crafts/date night    other:  neat & tangled tiny triangles/you can do anything nice & neat dies

I just realized that this card has no stamping...gotta love that Neat & Tangled has such awesome Nice & Neat dies!  I used the Tiny Triangles along with the You Can Do Anything.  I like to layer craft foam behind dies to add extra height when needed.



All the paper except for the Papertrey Ink vellum/Stampin' up Night of Navy is from the Chickaniddy Crafts Date Night Collection.

My card was also inspired by a Sweet Sunday Sketch:
