A Purrfect Pair

I had a nice surprise in this afternoon's mail when my Spellbinders Nestabilities circle diecuts arrived. I wasn't expecting them quite yet because I knew they'd been backordered. YIPPEE!!

Of course I dropped everything to give them a try. I'm not doing something quite right with the sandwiching of the pads because the embossing doesn't show up like it does on other people's that I've seen. But I'll figure that out with more practice. I am very pleased with how clean they cut and that I can use them with my cuttlebug.

This was a very quick card just for practice. The sentiment and kitty stamps are from justjohanna. I stamped with black versafine ink on watercolor paper and embossed with clear embossing powder. Next I watercolored the kitties with Tombow markers and added Christmas Red stickles glitter glue to their collars. The background paper has been in my stash for years and I am not sure who makes it. I punched various sizes of hearts and filled the centers of the smaller hearts with Fruit Punch Stickles.

If anyone has suggestions for more clarity of the embossed circles please feel free to leave me suggestions.


  1. Super cute card. Love it.

    My goodies came today. I am in love with the card. The stitching and all the texture is just beautiful. I'm going to have fun with my new stamps too. Thanks so much.

  2. OH NO! I was just sure I wouldn't be interested in these tools, but you said you can use them in the cuttlebug. That could make them tempting, especially as you get more practice and show us more great stuff. Love how the tails make that heart and your coloring is awesome, as usual.

  3. Awwww, so sweet. This would make a cute Valentine's card, too! Beautiful.

  4. This is adorable. I love your coloring with those Tombows.

  5. Sweet card. Love the floating hearts.


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. I truly appreciate them.
