Card From Kris

Happy Thursday my Blogger Friends - Today I was going to share with you the cards that my Stamp Camp girls made - but seriously......I'M EXHAUSTED!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE Stamp Camp (and Club) but work sooooo hard and put sooooo much time into making sure it all runs perfectly that I exhaust myself along the way.  SO - today I'm going share is a quick little card that my friend Kris Holmes showed me how to make at our July FU Summer Gathering.  Let's get started with the sharing..............
My friend and stamping buddy (and I DO MEAN buddy) Kris Holmes had me make this card for our summer FU group.  (Even though the other two gals are away for the summer  - Hi Debbie and Ann!) Kris and I decide to continue meeting during the summer and swap cards.  This is the card she had me make in July (I THINK IT WAS JULY??????).  

When I think of Nestabilities.....I think of Kris.  I seriously believe Kris wears the "Queen of Nestabilities" crown.  I love making cards with Kris - not only because she is SO TALENTED.....but also because she has all the SUPER COOL Nestabilities and she's always willing to break them out to let her friends give them a try.  And believe me......this card is a fine example of that.
Kris had me use one of the Nestabilities label dies along with some OctoberAfternoon DSP - and a fun vase punch to create this card.  She also showed me how to use ink directly to the diecut label (before the plate is removed) and that helped create this amazing shadow image around the inner portion of the label.  Is this just not the most AWESOME LOOK?   I have to tell you that this card will stay in my sample file..... and won't be given away.  It's just one of those cards that is just toooooo pretty to ever give away!

Thanks for joining me today - I'll be back tomorrow to share the five cards we made during Camp.  Keep Living Your Dream!
