Good Morning!

I gotta tell ya, yesterday was quite the day.   Let me back up a bit.   Back in February, I had a small ‘windfall’ of money and was given the go ahead by my DH to get in on a wholesale deal for some Nestabilities and a Wizard.    It was an extremely good deal, so I jumped on it.   Well fast forward a few months and my box arrived yesterday.

Like a good girl, before I even took the Wizard out of the box, I plugged in the CD that came with it and watched the video on how the thing works.   Ha!   Well, for one, they gave me a video for the previous model and there have been changes made.   Secondly, after many hours of playing with it, it does NOT do what they say it can do.  And finally, it is NOISY!

So, when I saw this morning’s Limited Supply Challenge, I knew I wanted to use my new nesties label 3 dies.   I grabbed for my cuttlebug!   Ah…. familiarity!   Maybe that’s it, maybe you need to be familiar with the machine first.

For this card, I die cut the labels 3 Three times, then ran those through the cuttlebug in the swiss dots embossing folder.   Put those aside and stamped the cupcake images.   Then I placed the label 3 die over those images and cut them out at different angles.    Each of those was cut out and popped on top of the original three die cuts.
