Neat and Tangled July Release Day Four: Hand Stitched + Dies

Hello and Welcome to Day Four of the Neat & Tangled July Release!

Today we're featuring

Hand Stitched + Dies

The Hand Stitched set is so pretty:

cardstock:  ranger watercolor  stamps:  neat & tangled handstitched  ink:  ranger archival black, brilliant brush markers  other:  aqua pen

Hoops, I LOVE hoops.  This set is absolutely wonderful.  The possibilities are endless.  My first card is pure stamping and coloring with no die cutting.  It is 4.25 x 4.25.

My next card is cleaner in design but used some die cutting:

cardstock:  recollections white 110, a muse studio grid  stamps:  neat & tangled handstitched  ink:  ranger archival black  other:  papertrey ink vellum, dcwv cork, neat & tangled handstitched/hoop nice + neat dies, kuretake gansai tambi

Yes, the Hand Stitched set coordinates with the Hoop Nice + Neat die!  On this particular card, I die cut the hoop with blue cork.  I sandwiched a layer of vellum inbetween the hoop and the A Muse grid cardstock.  The sentiment has been stamped directly onto the vellum and the bloom has been colored with Kuretake gansai tambi.

Remember, these will be available for purchase in the Neat & Tangled Store on Friday!
