ISC Release -- Day 3

(If you are looking for my Crazies and Speedy's Friends Challenges, please go to the previous post.  Of course you could stop to take a gaze here too!!!)

Nesting!


This line is simply exquisite.  These Innovative Stamp Creations' images are ideal for those special occasions such as a new neighbor, a friend who is moving,  a new baby or  a friend in need!  Nowadays many of the stamps on this line are quite trendy and versatile,  You will be able to create a very simple card, an altered art item, or a project of any kind.


I was particularly drawn to the nests in this set, which actually come in three sizes.  There are also several sentiments, a bird, a birdhouse, and so many versatile stamps.  This set is also very versatile as to style.  The images can go anywhere from elegant to shabby chic to country.  That can't be said about every set!D

On both of these cards I was drawn to the Cool Caribbean blues.  I used ivory cardstock for both, and added some Creamy Caramel on the first one.  On the Trio of Nests card I used texture, while on the Single Nest card I used an Ornare template for some fancy piercing as well as an elegant EK Success border punch.  The ribbon used on the second card is available from Mark's Finest Papers.

Now you need to take some time to view the fabulous work of the rest of the team.  Here are the links to help you on that journey.
