Neat & Tangled Reveal – Day 2

Welcome back for another day of Neat & Tangled gorgeousness! Today’s stamp and die is stunning. The set is called Gardenia Blooms Journaling card stamp and it comes with a coordinating die. The size is perfect for pocket scrapbooking, cards, scrapbook pages and more.

For my first card, I wanted to focus on the gorgeous die cut. I embossed a sheet of paper with gold embossing powder – this is the quickest and easiest way to get gorgeous gold paper! – and then die cut the journaling card from the embossed paper. I mounted the die cut over a piece of floral paper from the Crate Paper Notes & Things 6×6 pad with foam tape to give some depth. The journaling card is mounted at an angle on another piece of patterned paper from the same set and finished off with some coordinating twine & a wood heart.

Next up, a simple watercolor card using the stamp set. The image is stamped on watercolor paper and I did some quick watercoloring with my new Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor set – they are divine! I dry embossed a woodgrain pattern on the kraft card front and swiped it with a white ink dauber for a little bit of detail. I mounted the journaling card with foam adhesive – so simple and elegant.
