Neat and Tangled: Add interest by irritation

Hello and happy thursday!

It's my turn to bring some inspiration to you on the Neat & Tangled Blog today.
I decided to talk about interest and irritation.

If you irritate the eye you will add some interest to your card. Well - irritation by something that's unusual for the eye - but don't make your card too busy - that was what I tried and this is the card I came up with:

I used Sparkle and Shine for the background and the embellishments and Everyday Labels for the sentiment
Find all my thoughts about unusual placements and sentiments on the Neat & Tangled Blog - maybe they bring some inspiration into your craft room. :)

Oh, by the way: I often read that people like to store their inkpads on the lid to get the ink to the top of the felt-pad. I never did that - but last week I didn't get good impressions with my black inkpads so I thought I'd give it a try. This makes such a BIG DIFFERENCE!

Those everyday labels are solid with skinny lines. And I didn't have to stamp any of them twice, because I had a perfect impression on every of those labels with the first try. I thought I'd let you know - this is my discovery of the week (and it only took me some years of stamping... hehe) :)


  1. Oh, echt jetzt? Das Umdrehen hilft was? Dann dreh ich mal schnell meine Stempelkissen um :)
    Die Karte ist toll geworden. Die Sterne sehen aus wie kleine Zauberstäbe, hach.

  2. Mag die Sterne und Label total! Und danke für den Tipp mit den Stempelkissen :o)
