I have another video post to share with you on the Spellbinders Paper Arts blog. The coming week is all about Nestabilities®. Nestabilities started my love for Spellbinders products. Once the original shapes came out I was hooked. In the video I talk a bit about some of my favorite techniques you can do with Spellbinders dies and show how to create this telescoping image.

I hope you have time to stop by, check it out and tell me what you think. I would love to hear from you!  Have a wonderful weekend!

For my sample today I stamped Ginger Meadows in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. It was cut and embossed with the largest Classic Rectangle Nestabilities die and colored with Copic Markers (Skin: E50, E51, E52    Lips: R21   Hair: Y26, E31, E33, E35, E37   Pants: B000, B01, B02, B04   Shirt/head band: RV000, RV10, RV13    Grass/flower headband: YG01, YG03, YG17   Flowers: Y11, Y13, Y15, E99, E29, Y32, Y17, YR15   Fence: W00, W1, W3   Basket: E31, E33, E35, E37    Eggs: YR20, YR21, W1    Cat: N0, N1, N3).

The image was stitched on a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest Scallop Rectangle Nestabilities die.

Two pieces of Bazill Basics Paper Vintage Marketplace patterned paper were cut with a Grand Oval Nestabilities die die. The edges were  sanded and stitched before May Arts Pink Sheer ribbon was tied around the horizontal strip before the paper was adhered to a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Grand Scallop Oval  Nestabilities die die.

The image layer were adhered to the center of the card and topped with part of a Fancy That! Border Bling.  To finish the card off I stamped a sentiment from the new Ticket Notes on white cardstock, cut it out and colored it with Copic Marker B0000. It was tied on to the ribbon bow with embroidery thread and a button.

Here is a sneak peek of the card I created for today’s post on the Spellbinders Blog.

The image is from JustRite Stampers With Sympathy set and it was colored with Copic Markers (R81, R83, R85, YG01, YG03, YG17, airbrushed BG01). And look close at the Floral Oval Nestabilities die cut. It’s not out of cardstock! I hope you go and check out the post on the Spellbinders Blog with step by step instructions for this project.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
