Little Tangles Challenge #55 - Sequins

Hi. Thanks for stopping by to see my card for the Little Tangles Challenge - Sequins.  I love putting sequins on my cards, but this is only my second attempt at a shaker card.  I like how it turned out even if I did make a few mistakes!

I watercoloured a panel to start and stamped some sequins and hearts using some images from the Photo Booth and Winter Wishes sets onto it before heat embossing in gold.

Now onto my first mistake lol, I should have used my powder tool on the inside edge of the card after putting the foam adhesive on the panel, as you can see by the photo the sequins stuck around the edges. I don't mind the look really but it's not much of a shaker card now!  THEN I stuck the completed shaker panel upside down onto my card base!  It wouldn't have mattered apart from the upside down hearts.  I could have removed it but I would have ripped the card base and didn't want to waste my card stock.

 So apart from that I like how it turned out.

Come play along, I would love to see what you make! You can link up HERE

I am also going to put this card in the Simon Says Happy Birthday Challenge and the Sparkle & Shine Challenge as I was inspired by the colours in the picture.

Little Tangles Challenge #54 - Anything Goes!

Yay! It's time for anything goes at Little Tangles.  Get those Neat and Tangled stamps out and create whatever you want!  Can't be any easier than that, and don't forget you have the chance to win a Neat and Tangled stamp set of your choice.

I've realised I need more birthday cards and particularly ones suitable to give the males of my family. I was so tempted to get out the watercolours and paint some pretty colours on white but no, I need masculine cards.  Not that this is super masculine but I can get away with it to give my boys.

I used embossing paste on the background with a SSS chevron stencil, then used the Everyday Circles Neat and Tangled set to stamp/emboss the sentiment. I put it together with a circle die cut from stitched mats: circles from Lil' Inker Designs and some thread and sequins.

Happy Birthday Little Tangles

I hope you can play along and thanks for stopping by.
