Want2Scrap™ & Crafty Secrets Keys to Happiness

Good morning blogging friends! Today, I have a card to share with you and a step-by step tutorial. I used Nestabling™ Heart Circles Brown Rhinestones and 72 Count Baby Blue Rhinestones to accent the stamped images. The stamped images are from the Keys to Life stamp set from Crafty Secrets. To started I stamped the image on to Simply Smooth White cardstock using Rich Cocoa Ink. I added the color with Copic markers and then used S4-116 Standard Circles Small die templates from Spellbinders™ to cut/emboss the circle. Then I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink.I stamped the sentiment from the Keys to Life stamp set and then cut/embossed using S4-346 Labels Twenty-Two and inked the edges with Antique Linen. To create the key I used S4-298 Antiquities. The Nestabling™ I used is Heart Circles Brown Rhinestones. As you can see from the photo I am not using the Heart Circles die cut, I used S4-345 Picot Edge Circles. The Nestabling™ was made to go with Heart Circles but as you can see it also works with other decorative edge circle die cuts. If you don't happen to have the die template to match the Nestabling™ don't be afraid to play around a little, be creative and think outside of the box. You might find a new favorite combination. ;-) To add a little sparkle I used Glue Gloss and Pralines & Cream Fairy Dust Glitter to the label and the key.I used 72 Count Baby Blue Rhinestones to accent the label and the corners.

  2. so lovely. do you have any hints on applying nestabling (or any other shaped embellie) without it getting out of shape?? i just can't get the hang of it, it never goes where i want it, stretches out of shape, doesn't land where i want it. etc, you get the idea.
