Are you ready for a party!
No....not a halloween party, but the MFT release party tonight over on SCS! Come and join us as we chat it up for the release of 3 awesome sets November 1st! I know Kim has some games in mind....maybe prizes too! Here is the LINK on where you will find me tonight!
Today I'm doing a quick post of a card I did for a color challenge. This is using one of the new sets that will be released Nov 1st. I didn't use copics on this one (SHOCK!) just my aquapainter and reinkers. It was a very simple layout and I stitched up the middle with my machine.
I find with my nestabilities that I stamp and color my image first and then determine the size of nestability I want to use with it. I sandwich my cuttlebug like this.....
From the bottom up
The paper with my image I want to cut out image side up
The nestability, cutting side down and centered over my image (very easy to see where it will cut since the nestibilities are just a rim.
Then the B plate
Run it through!
Then to emboss, I took advice from Nichole Heady's blog.
2 sheets of papertrey cardstock (heavy weight 110lb)
Nestability with the shape that I previously cut nestled inside, This time I place the cutting side UP
Tan embossing mat
2nd B plate
Run it through!
I know others do it slightly differently, I think whatever works for you is great. I just find that I create somewhat by the seat of my pants so if I can cut out my shape after I have stamped and colored that works best for me!
One more thing..... I have all my design cards ready to upload and show you all, be here tomorrow when I unveil them to you! I love show and tell!
See you tonight over on SCS!
