Finally some time to stamp

Hey there!

Sorry I have been so busy with last minute school shopping and a new job that I haven't been on in a while. Did you see the info about JLO's Olympic games? She has the web site link for the Olympic games up and running now, so be sure and join in the fun. I have a few cards up my sleeve so stay tuned for those. :)

I finally found some time to stamp this week. Last Saturday I went to a workshop where we played around with a Scor-Pal and made this terrific faux tile card and some other bg patterns that I haven't created into an actual card yet.
Then we made the "never ending card," which I hope to show you as soon as I decorate it a little more. It is so much fun. I can't wait to finish it and show you.

These two cards were created today CASE'd from my friend Jessica. Here are her cards. (thanks so much for the idea Jessica). She purchased some pre-made embossed white cards for hers, and I thought to myself . . . I can make those with my nestabilities dies -- so here is my take on it using the classic circle (small) nesties and some clear acetate sheets. The embossed edge is hard to capture in the photos, but each of the circles themselves has an embossed edge on there as well.

I had a couple of Santa's helper images already colored and accented with puffy EP and tan flocking, and I just had to use these cuties with some basic grey figgy pudding paper (larger circle on the inside behind the image). Added my sentiments and ribbon, and it is all set. Very quick, yet elegant looking I think. :)

First signature idea

I love the grid card and the figgy layer is perfect with the cute housemouse. Glad you found some time to stamp Kelly!

Gorgeous cards, Kelly!! I really liked what you did with the Scor-Pal and the nestabilities. I think I am going to give these techniques a try. Thanks for the inspiration:o)

The faux tile technique is one I really need to try -- your card is gorgeous! Great job with the HM cards, too; those Nesties are so versatile, aren't they??
