Sparkling Nestabling™

Hello blogging friends! Today, I have a tutorial to share with you showing another way to use a piece of Nestabling™ from Want2Scrap™ even if you don't have a die template.

Instead of using a die cut I used a 4 inch doily for my focal point and stamping base.

I started by inking the doily with three colors of Distress Ink--Tumbled Glass (blue), Victorian Velvet (rose) and Antique Linen.

Next I stamped a sentiment in the center using the Grand Greetings stamp set from Crafty Secrets and then I inked the edges with Rich Cocoa ink.

Then I added the Nestabling™ to the doily. The third circle of the Nestabling™ Heart Circles Pink Rhinestones fits perfectly in the center of a 4 in doily! Gotta love that!! When you are using your Nestabling™ sometimes it can be a lot of fun to think out of the box and look at other ways you can use it.

To add a little sparkle I used Glue Gloss on the Doily and then added Pralines & Cream Fairy Dust Glitter.

Here are a couple of close up pictures.

I used LF-006 Wonderful Wings die template to create the butterfly in the corner and then I added some glitter, Finesse Swirl White Pearl and 72 Count Pink Rhinestones. I also added a seam binding bow, trinket pin and button. The card base is Simply Smooth Ivory from Discount Cardstock and the designer paper is from the Vanity Fair Collection by My Mind's Eye.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you have a Wonderful weekend!!
