I bought this Neat & Tangled stamp set quite a while ago, but I never really got around to using it. For one of the colouring challenges earlier this year, I finally got around to colouring up one of the stamps; this awesome party snail. I opted for no-lines for a change and love how it turned out. As he’s quite small, I made a bigger cluster of scrap papers in the corner to go with. It’s mostly scraps from Maja Design and then some random card stock. The sentiment stamp means “congratulations” and is by Mathia Design.
I absolutely love the Statement Flowers, is by ALTENEW. It’s not that often I take time to colour up in no-lines, but so far I’ve only done just that with this stamp. I use the fade-out ink by InkOn3 because it’s awesome. This time I opted for a lot bolder colours by using red. I’ve hand cut the flower after colouring it up.
The card itself is made by die cutting the Trellis die in white and gluing it back onto white cardstock. The hello die is also by Altenew and so are the green enamel dots which are part of the Green Fields set. Lastly I embossed, in gold, a sentiment from Mathia Design.
Let’s have a proper close-up as well for a change.

I have another card for you using Paint-a-Flower Poppy by Altenew. I have, yet again, coloured it up with my RV90-series Copic markers. I’ve already done this twice; one as a no-lines version here and another with repeated stamping here.
Like the previous version of this card (see here) I have cut the flower out by hand. For the background I’ve used the Feathery Stencil and Distress Oxide Ink in the colour Milled Lavender. The sentiment is part of the Paint-a-Flower Paeonia Japonica and I stamped it using the Sugarplums mini cubes set. To finish it off I drew in some dots with the same Copic marker as I used on the darkest part of the flower and put some enamel dots around the text.
Copics uses: RV00, RV91, RV93, RV95, RV99, G21, G24, G28, E74, E79
I love this stamp (and it’s actually in stock as I type up this blog post as well, for a change!). I know I recently coloured it up in pale pink (see here), but I couldn’t help myself and had to colour it up in yellow as well. Yellow is really not my colour, but it is a very pretty colour when it comes to flowers so I figured it would be perfect for this stamp! The stamp, Statement Flowers, is by ALTENEW. This time I turned the stamp set around a bit more to make a low card instead of a tall one. It’s great that you can use the stamp in either direction!
I used Inkon3’s Fadeout Ink to get the no-lines effect. I love that ink pad! It’s by far my favourite of the ink pads I have tried for no-lines colouring! I stamped the sentiment (from the Paint-a-Flower: Poppy set) using Evergreen from the Zesty Limes mini cubes set, the smaller sentiment stamp is from the Statement Flower stamp set, but it’s in quite a faint shade of yellow, so not easy to photograph. The enamel dots are from Altenew as well, but unfortunately they didn’t photograph very well either this time as they are such a pale green colour.
Here is another photo of the card.
