easter journaling {neat and tangled}

Hi there!

We're at the halfway point for Neat and Tangled's January release week. I hope you like what you're seeing so far! All of the sets and dies will be available in the store as of this Friday, January 22nd.

Today, I have 2 cards to show you using Easter Journaling, a set designed by my good friend Miriam Prantner.

My first card uses the set as it was intended, for Easter. I love the lettering in this set, and I sorely needed to add something like this to my Easter collection. I have enough bunnies and eggs (which I adore) but I do want to make cards to give out to church ladies and this may be more appropriate. I love that the letters are so big that I don't need to add an image, that they can be the focal point of the card all by themselves.

I watercolored an orange and yellow sunrise, and added minty rolling hills underneath. The lettering was colored in red, and I added little white accent dots to the letters.

The next card I created used the letters as an alpha set:

I used "you are a" from Little Angel, and selectively inked up letters to spell the word "deer." (I did have to borrow the "D" from Miriam's matching letter set, Bible Journaling.) The deer is, of course, the little girl from Lumberjack Love. I colored her to look like she's in a full deer costume, with her fuzzy white deer belly and everything.  Her sidekick bear is there because he's just too cute to leave out.

I hope you like what I've crafted for today! There's more to see on the NT blog this morning - click!
