At last I've had chance to spend some more time playing with my Nestabilities, and here are some of the results. The geometric shapes are great for framing, and I particularly like the effect of the plain circle with the scalloped circle border. I've used these on the first card to frame some Elusive Images flowers from Graphicus. I stamped three different sizes and layered them with sticky pads, curling the edges of the petals slightly on the top two layers. The background is made with a Cuttlebug embossing folder, and the sentiment and butterfly stamps are also from Graphicus.
The next card is a quick and easy one. The Hydrangea stamp, by Anna Griffin, is mounted simply over sheer ribbon. The background is a printed paper and a stamped sentiment adds the finishing touch.
The final card of this set is quite unlike anything I've done before. Big and bold is not my usual style at all! However, it's growing on me. The background is sponged and then stamped with my favourite Crafty Individuals flourish, and the printed paper and butterfly and dragonfly stamps are also from Crafty Individuals. I was lucky to get the Spellbinders Celtic-style "Kelly" alphabet set at a much reduced price from Once Upon a Stamp. I think it complements the flowers beautifully.
I'll be demonstrating these examples at my next class.
