Masked Frame Nest

I used the technique challenge from Splitcoast for these cards. I started by cutting out a template with the Nestibilities and running some of the 2-way glue from SU on it and letting it dry (that makes it repositionable) and placing it in the center. Then I stamped around the circle with my stamps and with the stipple brush added some of the same color ink.

The birdie card is done with the new Bremuda Blue. The nest is out of the new set Natures Nest, but the rest of the stamps are from various retired sets. The bird is stamped and cut out and placed on dimensionals. The main image panel is layered on Soft Suede.

For the ornaments card I used Kiwi Kiss and all stamps from Sparkle n Sprinkle Stamp Set 194. After I removed the mask I stamped the large ornament and embossed with Firecracker Red. The blue ornament is stamped on a seperate piece of cardstock and embossed with Firecracker Blue, cut out and adhered with a dimensional. Around the circle I used the glue pen and added some Parisian Mist glitter. The brads I embossed with the Firecracker Red as well to match.

Hope you all have a wonderful day:)
