Eggstra Special + So Lucky (Neat and Tangled release week)

Hi there!

Neat and Tangled's February release week kicks off today and I have 2 cards to show off. The first is for a mini set that I designed, called Eggstra Special (yep, we've left Valentine's day in our dust and we're on to Easter sets. hee.)

Neat and Tangled February release week, day 1


If the chick looks familiar, it's because you can find the digital stamp version in my shop (click!) but if you prefer to stamp, you will be very happy come Friday when you can purchase him in the NT store.

I colored the chick with copic markers (Y02, Y18, and a touch of Y000 for the body, and YR02, YR68 for the beak and feet.)

Behind the chick, I use the stitched sunburst die to add some interest and weight to the right side of the card. I really love how that looks!

The journaling alphas are still my favorite, and I used them to spell out "chickie." I used the same orange copics to color them as for the beak.

The next card I made uses Danielle's hand-lettered So Lucky:

I absolutely love her hand-lettering! I gold-embossed the sentiment, and then used a black pen to outline everything. It gives it more pop and lends a more graphic quality to the lettering. The coverplate in the background is something you'll see more of this week, and I cut it in a St-Patty's day green. I brushed some gold ink onto the die-cut in some spots and brought even more gold by way of a few sequins.

I hope you like what you see! Check out the NT blog this morning for even more inspiration!

  22. I love how you used the cover plate and incorporated it into your "lucky" card. But that chick is just so cute! I don think anyone could use it in a card and it not just be adorable!
