Add A Little Dazzle & Neat & Tangled Day 4

Hi everyone! Don’t fall over in shock- a post, …with actual content! The gremlins are still misbehaving a little- but hopefully I’ve ironed it out & we have a fabulous hop for you today. If you haven’t caught up with the other days..do go and look at all of the projects!

This week Add A Little Dazzle and Neat & Tangled have joined forces to bring you some stamp and metal goodness. Neat & Tangled is a stamp company boasting fun with a cute, hand drawn, heartwarming feel. They’re great quality stamps & I’ve actually not used stamps in a physical sense today but their digital stamps (which is the same design of one of their stamps too!).

I’ve linked the picture to the actual digital file page. You don’t need an actual stamp to create my project, in fact, the stamp wouldn’t enable you to make this little gift. This digital file is just what you need! In case you’re wondering; it’s a layered hot chocolate gift- all ready to pop into a pan or microwave (reserving the choc and peppermint candy pieces until the drink is made) and makes a super easy gift for someone.

choc3I have shared some projects created with my Silhouette Cameo before & this was created with the Add A Little Dazzle Scarlet Red & Brushed Bronze metal and some gorgeous vinyl. The supplies work together beautifully.

Brushed Bronze

Because Neat & Tangled create these as files which are downloaded as JPEGs or PNG files, you can print, colour, or, as I did, trace them in my Silhouette Studio software & cut out sections in both metal and vinyl. Now, due to the miniature size of the tag- I couldn’t cut the file exactly as it is, so I had to remove the tinier elements so I could actually cut the metal & the vinyl.

The Cameo is fab- but you need to be gentle with it-especially when it comes to cutting metal. Slow speeds are crucial with metal. I have it cutting at the slowest speed and the Blade at about 9-10. Part of the reason I’ve a higher no is that my blade isn’t super-new.

I can’t wait to get my hands on the actual stamp! I have used another stamp set for the tag; ‘Gifts For You’

choc4As usual there’s a prize for visting all of the blogs and leaving comments at each; there’s a prize from Neat & Tangled & Add A Little Dazzle. You have until midnight (MST) on the 22nd of November to have left comments with each participant. Here’s the list of everyone taking part today.

Add A Little Ornament & Metal Offer!

20140730-102118-37278913.jpg
Hi! It’s an Ornament challenge (or Anything Goes) this week at the Dazzling Diva Challenge #36.

20140730-113351-41631324.jpg
For the ornament, I started off diecutting some white metal sheeting with the Tim Holtz rosette die. After attaching it to some cardstock at the back I added some green sequins as a handle.
I stamped one of Papermania’s latest stamps from the ‘Create Christmas’ range in white Stazon on the Dark Chocolate metal and then ran it though a dots embossing folder.
Metal is very soft and flexible and so to keep the dots from pushing back in, I added embossing paste into the holes to keep them solid.
Next, I adhered the metal to cardstock and trimmed it out. This was tricky- if I did it again, I’d stamp it twice, cut out the deers separately and then stick together.
I next die cut some snowflakes from an XCut Christmas symbols set and also the Die-namics ‘Let it Snowflake’ set in Brushed Copper.
I then slightly rubbed the dots with a file and this sanded away the top colour which helped accentuate the dots. Then, just add it all together!!

We are offering for a limited time Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheet Week 5 Package. This package includes 6 sheets of Brushed Copper and 6 sheets of Dark Chocolate Craft Metal Sheets. These are the colours I’ve used in my little ornament.
