Nature's Nest

This set was the first to catch my eye in the new Summer Mini. As with all Stampin’ up! stamps….the detail in these images is quite amazing. I’ve used my Stampin’ Write markers to colour in the different parts of the peacock feather, inking up the whole stamp in Sahara Sand ink first. I was really happy with the result especially as I didn’t have to be too neat with my Marker application to get a good effect :). I’ve also used one of the new large silver Grommets as my accent, pulling the ends of the Twill Tape through the middle before tying a single knot. Grommets are a great alternative to brads or eyelets and they come in both small and large sizes.

Here is another card using the same stampset……this turtle reminds me of Crush in finding Nemo and I think he will be great to use on cards for men. In this card I’ve also used a cool background technique…..I’ll be telling you more about the class details for this one in the New Year. Here is a sneak peek of my Crush card:
