talk about getting more from nestability dies..

a handy little tip I am sure some of you may already know about, but for those who don't..

Some of the nestability dies have designs which aren't too intricate to trace around, like the labels one I used in this card.
So, by tracing either inside or outside the die with a sharp pencil to get a thin cutting line and cut out the shape, you can come up with even more nested shapes / graduated (is that the right word?!) shapes from your existing dies - brilliant!

The stamp I used in this card is one of Tina Wenke's newest ones and the colour used to colour her dress with Twinkling H2O's is called northern lights - isn't it just so luminous!?
I also used the following materials:
  • Personal Impressions Happy Birthday stamp
  • Martha Stewart Leaf Punch
  • Craft Creations light turquoise gingham papers
  • EK success flower punch
  • card candy
  • Cuttlebug embossing folder on the punched flowers which matches the gingham paper and comes from a set called simply charmed.
that's all for today, will be back with more soon.
