Woo hoo I stamped!


I have been so wanting to play with my nestabilities! I finally got a chance to and can I just tell you I love them. I need to get some more older stamp sets sold on ebay so I can get the rest of them. I have a cuttlebug and they work wonderfully in my bug. I started with a buckaroo blue base and the textile embossing folder. I embossed about 3/4 of the front of the card. The next layer is bravo burgundy scalloped with my create-a-cut. I used sahara sand cs for the next layer and stamped it with bravo burgundy craft ink using my paisley bg stamp from Stampin'Up!. I sewed two lines of stitching across the top and bottom with my sewing machine. The next layer is bravo burgundy with a piece of sahara sand on top. I stamped my polka dot bg stamp in buckaroo blue. I used the little star stamp from priceless and then the little oval stamp from Papertrey's borders and corners ovals. The ribbon is craft tafetta. The large oval was cut using my nestabilities classic scallop oval die and then pierced in each scallop. The next layer was done with the classic oval die and was put through my cuttlebug twice to emboss the edge. I sponged the edge with bravo burgundy and then stamped the oval dots from borders and corners ovals. The swirl was stamped with my glue pad and then glittered. I stamped the flowers and cut them out and attached them with dimensionals. The pearls are from Ellen Hutsons online store. These are so fun and I have to order more! The for you was stamped with papertrey's paper tray set and I used the classic oval die on it as well putting it through twice to emboss the edge. The dots were stamped with the corners and borders oval dots. This was so much fun although a bit of work. I hope you like it.
