Lovin' my Nestabilities!

Good morning! I made these last week and just kept forgetting to post them. I only have the rectangle and circle nestabilities so far, but I wanted to do a square, so I just cut some out of the rectangle. I can't believe it worked! Now I don't even need the squares smile. Hehe, my ribbon is pretty crooked in the picture. It's not glued down though, so I can fix it.

-Stamps-Impression Obsession Small Hydrangea Sprig, PTI Papertray
-Paper-Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue, and Whisper White
-Ink-Memento tuxedo black, Chocolate Chip, Copic Markers
-Accessories-Chocolate Chip grosgrain, swiss dots Cuttlebug folder, nestabilities

These next two, I made for the Viva la Verve Challenge. It was a sketch challenge, but with a twist. You had to use hardware on it too. I did use some hodgepodge hardware on the first one, but I just couldn't make it work on the second. I got some new Christmas stamps recently, so I can't resist in making a couple of Christmas cards! These stamps are fun to color too! Man, everything is fun to color with these markers! Ever since I got them, my solid stamps are kind of getting neglected.

-Stamps-Rubber Stampede Cardinal, PTI Take a Bough

-Ink-Memento tuxedo black, Bravo Burgundy, Copic Markers
-Accessories-White grosgrain, swiss dots Cuttlebug folder, HPH, Circle cutter, Circle nestabilities

Wow Emily- you have fantastic coloring skills - these cards are all amazing - I especially love the cardinal - my mom's favorite bird. I have the nestabilities too, but always forget about using them - I need to wipe the dust off them - they really add so much dimension to the card. Have a wonderful day!

So pretty! I need to get me some scalloped nesties. I just have the straight edges so far. I love your hydrangea card. That's one of my favorite flowers. :)
