Keys to Happiness

Good morning blogging friends! Today, I have a card to share with you and a step-by step tutorial. I used Nestabling™ Heart Circles Brown Rhinestones and 72 Count Baby Blue Rhinestones to accent the stamped images. The stamped images are from the Keys to Life stamp set from Crafty Secrets. To started I stamped the image on to Simply Smooth White cardstock using Rich Cocoa Ink. I added the color with Copic markers and then used S4-116 Standard Circles Small die templates from Spellbinders™ to cut/emboss the circle. Then I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink.I stamped the sentiment from the Keys to Life stamp set and then cut/embossed using S4-346 Labels Twenty-Two and inked the edges with Antique Linen. To create the key I used S4-298 Antiquities. The Nestabling™ I used is Heart Circles Brown Rhinestones. As you can see from the photo I am not using the Heart Circles die cut, I used S4-345 Picot Edge Circles. The Nestabling™ was made to go with Heart Circles but as you can see it also works with other decorative edge circle die cuts. If you don't happen to have the die template to match the Nestabling™ don't be afraid to play around a little, be creative and think outside of the box. You might find a new favorite combination. ;-) To add a little sparkle I used Glue Gloss and Pralines & Cream Fairy Dust Glitter to the label and the key.I used 72 Count Baby Blue Rhinestones to accent the label and the corners.

  1. I love the circle shape. All the keys! Something you could use for male layout. Sometimes hard to do. Great job!

  2. Oooooohhhh love all the vintage keys. Paper, Spellbinders and that adorable stamp set were just made to go together. How do you always manage to round up all of these items that go so fabulously together?? I agree that these three items could very easily accomodate a male theme as well. Love the nestiblings that you have used on this card along with the glitter.

  3. Wow.. your card is so pretty.. all those details make it so beautiful!! I love it!!!!.. Great job!!!
