Scrap-Mart and Want2Scrap™ Blog Hop Day #5!!

Jun 30, 2011

Welcome to our first Nestabling™ celebration week with Scrap-Mart!! Designers from both Scrap-Mart.com and Want2Scrap™ have teamed up to bring you a week long mini blog hop full of beautiful projects featuring Nestabling by Want2Scrap. If you are just joining us, hop on over to the Scrap-Mart Blog and start there.

For my projects, I wanted to create something sophisticated but also quick and easy.  I know asking for the moon right??  Well you’re in luck!

Easy sophistication is so simple to achieve when using Want2Scrap™ Nestabling! The designs of the STUNNING Fancy Tags Two Nestabling set will bump any project up on the sophistication scale. Looking like a million bucks no longer means hours spent in the studio!  Let  me show you how I was able to achieve this look in a matter of just minutes. 

For my first card, I decided to use the Fancy Tags Two Nestabling in White Pearl along with the Spellbinders™ Fancy Two Tag Die S5-030 cut out in cream cardstock.

I simply added my sentiment and Fancy Tags Two White Pearl rhinestones and placed it on several layers of paper.

So easy . . so fun and this came together in a matter of minutes!  Beautiful bling isn’t it???

Here is another project that was just as fun and even easier to come together.

First I made a tag using Graphic 45 Tour de France paper from the Curtain Call Collection and a Thinking of You Sentiment stamp. I placed the beautiful Fancy Tag Two Nestabling in Black Rhinestones around my sentiment, topped it off with a decorative brad, and adhered it to the front of the box with Beacon Adhesive 3-in-1 glue.

I finished the box off with some ribbon and a handmade flower and voila!  This just goes to show that with a few beautiful embellishments your projects no matter how simple or elaborate will look just beautiful!

I am loving this one today. The pearls and the black shiny bling is perfect on those cards. I think I have that one and am going to have to try that.

Super gorgeous both! I love the white on white of the first and the glamorous black details on the second!
