Out of Bounds with Nestabilities

I'm sitting on my couch with an icky stomach – hoping it's not this stomach bug going around. Maybe I should just stop watching all they twirling and swirling going on with the Olympic figure skating and men's aerials.

Meanwhile, someone asked me how I did the cutout on this card, extending the image past the Nestabilities oval die.


I love, love the look of this technique, and it's really pretty easy. Here's a video from Paperthreads that shows how to do it. If you can't see the video, here's the link. This video made me a new fan of the Paperthreads Blog for all it's great tutorials for die cuts and stamping.

Leave me a comment with a link to your projects if you try this technique – I'd love to see what you create!

  4. Congrats on being a guest designer for Mo.  I just realised that your boat card was one of my favourites during the challenge – the colouring is fantastic.  Looking forward to seeing further designs using Mo's digis.

    I am thrilled with your video.  Even with the speakers on my computer not working, I was able to follow it well.  Thanks for the lesson, and keep up the good work!  I may even USE my Nesties now!
