Hi, Thanks for dropping by.

My name is Eileen but to friends in the card making world I'm known as 'ikki'. (which is pronounced I-KEY) From where or how this came about I'm not sure - it just got shorten from my original craft name of Ikemo by various friends along my crafting way! I started crafting whilst recouperating from an accident, and from my first attempts with peeloffs and paint - I was hooked! Now my passion is my BUG! and now BEADING!

In the Cupboard you will find ideas, news, tips and techniques to help you get more from this fab little machine. So come in - join the fun and Cuttle with me!

Spellbinders Nestabilitie Labels

There are times when you have such a pretty paper or strong coloured cardstock that all you need is a fancy tag or label to complete your card. That is how this project came about.

For the tag:
Two pieces of coloured card
Two different sizes of plain oval dies
Two different sizes of scalloped oval dies

Using the smallest plain oval, cut, emboss and stamp sentiment.

Using the largest scalloped oval, cut and emboss

Using the largest plain oval, with the smallest scallop oval, cut a frame

With the same plain oval cut a piece of acetate

Assembled and with a bit of ribbon, you get this effect. Posh Tag!

Now I need a card for the tag:
Largest Curved Rectangle Nestabilitie Die
CB folder Swiss Dots
Flowers, ribbon, gems

Placing the die just over the centre fold line, cut the card. If you use a heavy quality cardstock you may have probs cutting. If so, run through the bug twice, and you could also try turning the partially cut die slightly to cut on a different angle. (hope this makes sense!)

Add two different ribbons to the edge and knot on the inside.

My finished card and tag.

My next post will be on Thursday, lst October.
Thanks for dropping by, hope you have a good week.
