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
A plate
C plate
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.
A plate
2 sheets of papertrey cardstock (heavy weight 110lb)
B plate
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!
Happy Stamping!

Nike has made really beautiful sports watch and every player should have it for not wasting their time into irrelevant activities such as uk essay writing. Because time is very important especially when you work for online writing services or companies whom work online.
