Neat & Tangled April Release Day 1: Have Courage

Hi everyone,

I'm so excited to be playing along with the April release over at Neat & Tangled.  The set being highlighted today is Have Courage stamps and coordinating dies.  The main stamps are gingko leaves, but I did a floral twist on the watercoloring. 


First I embossed the image with gold powder.  To get the gold highlights on the "flower", I used an embossing pen.  Then I cut it out with the coordinating die.  The circle cut out is backed with vellum for a softer look.  


Head on over to the Neat & Tangled blog to check out more ideas with this set!

Have a great week guys!

  1. This is such a great stamp that was created. But I think that you might have created the nicest card of all of the ladies. They are all amazing for different reasons, but your gold embossing, and coloring, wow---gorgeous!

  2. This is exquisite. I love what you have done with the set but I cannot find it on the website. I am also having trouble getting on the blog for the company. It must be heavy with graphics as my (original) iPad keeps shutting down when I try to open the page. I will have to fire up the laptop as I am intrigued. I went to college in Buffalo and there were gingko everywhere and they bring back some happy memories. I hope I can find this set. You truly have created a magnificent card.
