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


Welcome and Happy Monday! It's Day 1 of Neat & Tangled's October Release and, today, the design team is featuring the Into the Woods stamp set and coordinating dies, designed by Elena Roussakis, and the Many Thanks stamp set and coordinating dies, designed by Miriam Prantner! All of these products will also be available for purchase when the October release goes live on Friday.


My card features the Many Thanks stamp set and today is the perfect day for me to feature it because it's Thanksgiving Monday in Canada! Our national flag has a maple leaf in the centre and fall is also my favourite season so this mini set is one of my new favourites. The faceted maple leaf stamp is stunningly unique and the coordinating dies are just as gorgeous.

I heat embossed the sentiment and leaves, then watercoloured them using distress inks, all of which are listed below. I added a strip of black glitter tape on the left before trimming the panel and adhering it to the card base with strong tape.


There's a GIVEAWAY! Be sure to leave a comment on the Neat & Tangled Blog for your chance to win the Into the Woods and Maple Thanks stamp sets! 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!
