Neat & Tangled May Release Week: Day Two G.O.A.T.

Hello everyone.

Welcome to Day Two of Neat & Tangled's May Release Week. I hope you enjoyed Day One. (CLICK HERE!) if you somehow missed day one.  Today, we are showcasing the NEW Neat & Tangled G.O.A.T. stamp set and coordinating dies. This stamp set features an adorable image of a farmer with a pitch fork and of course a goat. The G.O.A.T. sentiment cracks me up. The acronym means The Greatest of All Time.

Make sure you (CLICK HERE!) to visit the Neat & Tangled blog and check out what the rest of the design team has created. If you comment on the design team members' blog posts you will be entered into a Giveaway. You can find all of the information regarding that giveaway on the Neat & Tangled Blog.

My card today somewhat matches yesterday's card. I had thought about making one long card, but I liked them better separate. Plus, I got a little carried away with the striped ink blending backgrounds and decided both needed to be used.



To make this background, I grabbed a piece of Neenah 110 lb cardstock and my MFT Drifts and Hills stencil. I used the stencil as both a stencil and a mask for this card. I masked the sky first to keep it from any green exposure. I used Distress Oxide Ink in Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron to create the cascading light green hills. After the light green hills were created, I used 1/4 inch art tape to mask off the light green in order to add some Pine Needles Distress Oxide Ink and create some darker stripes. For the hill in the foreground I used double the art tape to make 1/2 inch stripes.

Once the green hills were created, I used the same Drifts and Hills stencil to keep the green safe from any yellow contamination. I used Antique Linen Distress Oxide Ink to blend a little light in the sky. I used Nuvo Blender Brushes to do all of the Ink blending for this background.


I stamped my images with a We R Memory Keepers Precision Press. I stamped them onto another piece of Neenah 110 lb Solar White cardstock. I used Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink to be able to color them with my Copic Markers. 

I have created a Copic Color Map for you to see all of the markers that I used to color these images. I also used my Gold Faber colored pencil #273 to add some shadows to my images. 

Once my images were colored I used the G.O.A.T. coordinating dies to cut them out. I used Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive to adhere the farmer flat to the background and the other images were popped up with Scotch 3M Foam Tape. 

I did replace the patch in the farmers jeans by paper piecing a piece of Fancy Pants Oh Happy Day patterned paper. It is a medium gray with white dots. 



The sentiments are also from the G.O.A.T. stamp set and they were both stamped with Nuvo Clear Mark embossing ink. The "happy birthday" was stamped onto unknown off white paper that I have in my stash (sorry guys) and adhered flat to the background with liquid adhesive.  The "you old goat" was stamped onto Papertrey Ink's Blueberry Sky cardstock and both were heat embossed using Ranger White embossing powder. I cut the sentiments strips down with my Fiskars Wire Guide paper trimmer. I used my Tonic micro snips to cut a fish tail banner end into one of the ends of the blue strip. Then,  I popped it up with foam tape. 

The entire panel was added to a piece of white craft foam using scotch double sided adhesive and then placed onto a Simon Says Stamp Fog Card Base. 

I hope you enjoyed my project for today. There will be more inspiration tomorrow for Day Three. Make sure you check out the Neat & Tangled Blog for more inspiration and a chance to win a Giveaway. (CLICK HERE!)

  8. Adorable! I need to try your background as it is very visual appealing. This is a set I need. My husband had a goat as a pet in his team's and would be great for his birthday card.
