Nested {thank you}

I created this card in multiple stages, but I'm really happy with this card. I think what I enjoy the most was the central image itself. I found this image at Hobby Lobby (it's an Inkadinkado stamp) that wasn't on sale. I didn't have a coupon. I could have waited until stamps were on sale... but I HAD to purchase it. I just did.

I stamped the nest image on Georgia Pacific white cardstock in Pitch Black Adirondack ink and colored with various copic markers. To add a little dazzle (which didn't photograph well), I highlighted the image with Copic spica glitter pens. I trimmed the image and matted on Chocolate Chip cardstock - pierced first. I used my Coluzzle (still one of the best tools in town) to create my semi-circle and pierced it too. I sponged all the edges in Close to Cocoa.

Before I put all this on the Soft Sky card base, I used the color spritz tool and my Close to Cocoa marker to make the main card look like a Robin's egg (LOL!).

All in all, I loved how this completed. I'm glad I gave in to my impulse to purchase this stamp. It will be a favorite of mine for a long time.

Thanks for stopping by,


ETA: My grandma was scheduled to have her brain surgery today for her aneurysm... but they had to cancel. The radiological equipment wasn't working properly (the software). We're scheduled again for tomorrow morning, so the waiting game begins again. It's so nerve wracking.


  1. Lisa, your card is beautiful. I bought the same stamp -- bet I paid more for it than you did (got mine at a stamp store), but like you I had to have it. It's a gorgeous stamp just to look at.

  2. Simply Stunning... glad you gave into your impulse as well! *wink*

    I will keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time Lisa! *hugs*

    I'm eager to get to know you better.

    Anne :)
