Tutorial for Nestabilities & Just-Rite Stamps

Good Morning,

Hope you all had a great week-end. We had a nice one...very warm...and we had a few friends over on Saturday night which made for a sleepy Sunday. lol

Today I want to show you how to use your Nestabilities with stamped images.

Start with the size of nestability that you think will accomodate the size of your stamped image.

Tape one side of it to scrap cardstock.

 Stamped image.

Remove the centre after you have cut it.

Open the nestability like a window and position your stamped image under the opening. 

Close and cut.

The technique works great with the Just Rite Stamps. You can see in the top corner I've used the circle to cut out the stamps ring on a Just Rite Stamp
Onto today's card. You can see how nicely I was able to cut out all the circles. The snowman was cut around and popped up with dimensionals.
Isn't the background paper cute? That is the new Basic Grey Christmas Line called Jovail. FargoCat Shops will have this in stock soon if it hasn't already arrived.
See the scalloped border strip and the square under the snowman. Those were made using SU's punches. The border punch was used for the long strip and I just punched one strip in red and one in black. Layered those together and then put another 1/4" strip of black over top and added a black grosgrain bow. The square was 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 and I punch just the corners with the corner scallop punch. It is designed to work with the border punch so you can have a scalloped square. Good in theory but you are very limited to the size of square scallop that you can make. I'm waiting on my order of Scalloped Square Nestabilities to arrive and that will make it much easier. (They should be here tomorrow- - hehe). Anyway it did make a fancy square so you might want to try some of those corner punches that are sitting in a drawer and see what you can come up with.
A few Christmas colored dew drops down the side for balance and Christmas Red Stickles on the holly.

For those of you who want to make this the base card is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", red cardstock 4 x 5 1/4 and pattern paper is 3 3/4" x 5"

Copic Markers used
YR68 (orange)
E37 (sepia)
Y38 (honey)
R27 (cadmuim red)
R29 (lipstick red)
G99 (olive)
C5 (cool grey)

This has been a long post and if you're still with me "Have a great day." Lots of parents here in Houston are especially having a great day as it was the "First" day back to school! lol
