Let It Snow

Good Morning! Thanks for taking the time to stop by to visit. While you are here, won't you take a moment to leave me a comment. Your comments mean more to me than you will ever know! This weekend, I was going through some of my stamps and realized, yeah, my husband is probably right, I don't use a fraction of what I've got. This Penny Black stamp is just another example, I got it at Christmas time and it has never touched the ink pad so I thought I'd do something with it today.

The image was colored with Prisma pencils and OMS. I wanted to put it on a rectangle Nestibility but the image was a bit larger than I had thought so I went with the tag Nestibilities but had a problem there too. I wanted to emboss the Nestibility but it didn't stay in the die. I thought I could line it up but when I did the embossing it was slightly off so I ended up cutting the image out and popping it on the image that I stamped again. Has anyone else had a problem with the shape not staying in the Nestibility die? I wonder if I have a defective set and should contact Spellbinders. I really like the effect of the embossed layer. As it turned out, it wasn't a total loss and I guess I like the popped image. A little a bit of glitter was added to the snowman. The background layer was embossed with Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder. I added a few stars for the snowflakes that were cut from the 3inch Christmas tree die and added tiny flat back pearls to the center along with some rain dots. The words are computer generated using CK Wonderland font.

That's it for today, thanks for stopping by, will see you tomorrow. Until then Happy Crafting!

Love the card Kelly, an excellent job to say its not what you planned! Sometimes my shapes come out of the nestie when Im picking it up from the cuttlebug, but they sit right back in ok for me to emboss them. Maybe you do have a faulty set?
