Nestabling in action!

Hey everyone! I hope you have been just as thrilled as we are about the all new Nestablings!! I tell ya, I've been a long time fan of Nestabilities and when I found out there was going to be coordinating bling patterns, I was over the moon with excitement!! I already have a nice little collection of Nestabilities of my own, so when I got my shipment of bling I got to play right away.

I used the Nestabling that coordinates with the Spellbinder's Labels One dies and made my card using 3 of the dies. I used the largest die as my card and the 2nd largest as my mat. The bling coordinated perfectly with my 2nd layer, so I just placed it perfectly on top...easy peasy! I also used a portion of the Black Finesse Swirls as an accent on my top panel.

And before I go, I wanted to show you quickly how those lovely chipboard swirls that I used on the Cupcake album cover look when you buy them and how I quickly changed their appearance with a quick coat of acrylic paint.

Just use a foam brush and the acrylic color of your choosing and coat!! To distress, you can always take a file and distress the edges for a pretty aged look. :) I also like to cover with glitter!

Soooo excited about the possibilities here and I'm off to play some more! Hope you are able to get your hands on some soon!


  1. I'm pretty sure THIS card was why Nestabling was INVENTED! {!} Seriously, Melissa! What a FANTASTIC way to showcase the potential of these gorgeous gems! This card is sure to make MOM feel like a million bucks! Yee Haw!
