Always and Forever

Hi everyone!  Over the next couple days, I thought I would share a couple of the cards I posted over on the CardMaker blog from April and May.  On the day my post went live I posted a sneak peek of my card, but I know not everyone has the chance to click over and look, so I thought I would recap them here.  Also, I am knee deep in doing CHA projects and recovering from a stomach bug, so don't have anything new to share!

This card was my very first blog post with the blog team which was posted on April 13th.  My assignment was to write about my favorite product and I chose to combine my 2 favorites -Spellbinders™ die templates and bling which equals - Want2Scrap Nestabling™!  Here is my card which uses a lovely wedding cake image from the stamp set With This Ring, from Gina K Designs.
Here is a step by step showing my process to adhere the Nestabling.  The first thing I do is take the Nestabling out of the package and lay them over my die cut to get a feel for which size I should use and for exact placement.
A tip for sticking them down is to gently peel one off at the top and stick it to the top of your die cut. Then slowly work your way down lightly tapping it as you go. You can adjust it as you work your way down for a perfect fit.
I love how easy and convenient Nestabling is!  They add just that extra little touch to the Spellbinders Labels shapes you already have!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
