Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

It’s time for a new Blast From the Past Challenge. I want to thank all of you for joining in on these challenges. All your entries have been so fabulous.

Nestabilities have become a major item with most of us in card making. I think I use them in practically every card I make. This week I challenge you to watch Gina’s video “Nestabilities in your Cuttlebug Part 1 and 2” then make a card using this technique. I want you to make two sets of Nestability mats just like Gina made in the video. Please emboss the top piece if you have the tan embossing mat. I also want you to create a design that “pop’s” over the edge of the Nestability mat. Your finished card should be similar to the one Gina made.

Here is the my sample. I am disappointed in how my card photographed. The colors are not accurate.

Here is Geri's gorgeous card.

Now it’s your turn! Please watch Gina’s video “Nestabilities in your Cuttlebug Part 1 and 2” then create a card using the technique Gina shows. Next, upload a new card to the StampTV gallery using the keyword stvbpss06 by 8:00 p.m. central time Thursday, Jan 20th. Friday a winner will be drawn at random and may choose any Gina K stamp set valued up to $24.95. Your card can only be entered into this challenge on STV to be eligible to win, but you can use it for challenges outside of STV.

You do not need to use Gina K stamps to participate. A little perk though, if you do use Gina K stamps in your entry, your name will be added to the random drawing twice.

Here is the gallery link to all cards entered with the stvbpss06 tag.

Thanks for the challenge, Selma. I also use some variation of the Nestibilities on almost every card I make. :-)
Gorgeous cards Selma, and great challenge. Thanks :)
That looks a difficult challenge...I have never ever used a double Nestabillity cutting on my projects....
I love the nesties - will be happy to try this one.
Love this challenge, because I love nesties and always use them on my cards! Your samples are gorgeous as well. Can't wait to play this weekend. Yeah it's a three day weekend for me.
