A Note About Shipping

Hello friends! Danielle here.

Popping in quickly with a note about shipping.

When an order is packed, a shipping confirmation email is automatically sent to the email address  provided while ordering. If you are in the US or Canada, this email will contain a USPS tracking number which you can use to monitor the shipment of your package.  You can do this by going to USPS and entering the tracking number contained in the email. If you did not receive a shipping confirmation, please email orders@neatandtangled.com 

Once orders are handed off to the postal service they can be delayed for any number of reasons, including weather.

Recently, due to the extremely inclement weather that the North East experienced earlier this week, many orders that were shipped from January 20th on appear to be delayed. Neat and Tangled is located on the east coast in Delaware. Once packages are shipped from Delaware, they typically go to a larger hub in NJ and then out across the country. According to what I've seen by looking at the tracking they got stuck in Kearny, NJ, which I believe received significant amounts of snow with the storm earlier this week.

I know it is frustrating to wait for your package to get delivered, especially when it usually only takes 3-5 days. Luckily we don't get weather like this often! From what I've seen they all seem to be on their way to their destinations, and hopefully the tracking gets updated soon.

Another update: Good news! Several dies(including Box Die and Origami Map die) and stamps will be back in stock next week! If you're waiting for something in particular be sure to sign up on the product's page to receive an email notification when it is restocked!

January Guest Designer: Laura Sterckx

Happy Friday! We made it to the weekend!

How about we celebrate with a card from our January guest designer, Laura Sterckx!
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
Hey everyone! Laura here from makingcardsisfun.com and today I am sharing my last card as a Neat and Tangled guest designer. I had so much fun making cards with these products. Today I am using the Sparkle and Shine stamp set along with a spectacular mix of sequins.
First, I stamped a lot of the images from the Sparkle and Shine stamp set using black ink. This stamp set is simply fabulous and I could probably make about 100 cards with it because it inspires me so much. You could use the little stars to create a background, you could create a big focal point using the lightbulb, etc. I colored all of the images using Copic Markers and I added some sparkle using a Clear Wink of Stella pen.
After stamping my sentiment, I adhered sequins from the Birthday Bash sequin mix from Neat and Tangled. I adore these sequins. They are super sparkly! Next, I adhered the stamped piece on a standard sized card. I adhered two small strips of glitter cardstock behind the stamped piece by the way. It just adds that extra bit of sparkle.

That's it's for today. :) Thanks so much for stopping bye and thank you Danielle for inviting me to guest design. I had a blast! 

Big hugs,
Laura

Stretching Your Stamps And Dies With Taheerah!

Hey everybody! Happy Thursday! It's Taheerah here with a loved-up card!

I really feel like small dies and stamps get neglected a lot when we create. Actually these stamps and dies can end up being some of the most versatile of the bunch! Today I pulled out the two heart dies from the My Plate Is Full die collection and put them to good use!

Here's what I came up with:


I love how this turned out!


I started with a panel of white cardstock and die cut the hearts from it - many times! It actually didn't take that long because I put them both through at the same time, and I was going for a random 'falling' pattern so I didn't need to worry too much about positioning.


When that was all done I watercoloured my card panel, splattered on some mists and dried it with my heat tool. I then pulled out one of my all-time favourite Neat & Tangled sets - Gifts For You - and stamped my sentiments. I built up the 'A Lot' part by selectively inking some of the letters from the other sentiments - clever huh? :-) I love stretching my supplies like this! I added the full stops by hand with a marker, adhered my panel on top of some patterned paper and onto my card base and I was all done!

Do you enjoy stretching your stamps? Which other Neat & Tangled stamps or dies are you now looking at in a new light? :-)

I hope this card brought some fun to your day! Thanks for stopping by!

Box Die Video Tutorial

Hello friends!

Well, our new Box Die was clearly a hit! It sold out so quickly after release, but no worries! They will be restocked next week, around February 5th! Be sure to go HERE and click the "email me when available" box to get a notification when I restock the shop!


Today I don't have a card, but I do have a video showing you the new Box Die in action!


Here are a few of the tips I mentioned:
- 80lb cardstock is a great weight to make for easy folding! I personally like Neenah and Bazzill Card Shoppe
- You can always us a bone folder to make the creases easier to fold
- Practice on a piece of scrap paper to test it out before using your favorite paper!
- Scor-tape is a great way to get the sides to stick and stay!
- Fold the tabs behind the box to create a little pocket to stick something inside like a gift card or little note!

Thanks for watching! :)

Birthday Tags + Tiny Triangles


Hi, it's Emily here, and today I'm sharing a birthday card using the newly-released Birthday Tags dies, as well as the Tiny Triangles die. I die cut the Tiny Triangles and used it as a stencil. After creating three colours of embossing paste on a Ranger Craft Sheet, I applied the paste to a piece of linen cardstock in three sections and set it aside to dry.


After die cutting both Birthday Tags from patterned paper and Ranger foil cardstock, I layered them with a bit of foam tape and inserted the foil letters into the negative spaces. I used two chartreuse papers from Heidi Swapp's Dreamy 6x6 paper pad and two navy papers from Echo Park's Creative Agenda 6x6 paper pad.


After the embossing paste dried, I adhered it flat to a sheet of chartreuse houndstooth paper which I then popped on to the navy stripes with foam tape. To finish, I stapled white silk ribbon at the top of the tags and tied a bow. Then I adhered the stacked Birthday Tags to the embossing paste panel with foam tape.


Have you earned your free stamp set, All My Heart? It's yours free with a $50+ order!
