{Neat & Tangled} March Release Week: Day 1 + Giveaway!


Welcome and Happy Monday! It's Day 1 of Neat & Tangled's March Release and, today, the design team is featuring Better Together stamps and coordinating dies, designed by our ver own, mega-talented Elena Roussakis! All of these products will also be available for purchase when the March release goes live on Friday.


I freaked out when I first saw Better Together because there's a huge shortage of cute boy stamps! I always love that Elena includes a boy in her sets. After all, girls shouldn't have all the fun, right? ;) This set is so adorable and I love all the stuffies the kids are holding.

I created my own ombre sentiment using two blue distress inks to match the boy's jeans. I stamped the words on the linen cardstock before using an embossing mat with the Graduated Stripes Cover Plate to dry emboss the striped background.


There's a GIVEAWAY! Be sure to leave a comment on the Neat & Tangled Blog for your chance to win the Better Together stamp set! There will ALSO be a $25 gift certificate drawn from all comments left on the design team blogs so be sure to leave one here, too! :)

All release products will be available for purchase on Friday and I'll be updating my links at that time. See you again tomorrow!

lol. I'm actually chuckling as I write this because I can actually HEAR and SEE you freaking out about the images in the set, Emily. You're right - darling boy images to make into boy cards can be difficult! Love the simplicity in your card here. <3
