There's no nest like home...

 Happy Monday!  Sorry I didn't post this weekend, I've spent the weekend driving my cheerleader to extra practices, crafting with Lea, and helping Betty reorganize at The Stamping and Scrapbooking Room.  Now I need to straighten my scrap room.  Granted, I've been organizing for the last two weeks, but every time I go into creativity mode it gets trashed!  Lots of what I'm creating I cant share until April, but today I have a card I made with one of the new Stampendous! January releases.

I started by stamping the nest from Stampendous! Nest Egg in Versamark ink and heat embossing with Clear Bark Embossing Powder (found in the Scenic Selection Embossing Kit).  I trimmed the panel and tore the right edge, adding more versamark ink and Shabby White Embossing Enamel to the torn edge.

The eggs were stamped in Versamark ink and Aged Aqua Embossing Enamel using the solid egg shape, then I stamped the open egg with crackles and embossed in more Clear Bark.  The eggs were added to the nest with Crafty Foam Tape from 3L Adhesives.

My sentiment was stamped with the words from the same Nest Egg set.  I also added some Gold Shimmerz spray to the brown panel and some ribbon to finish off the card.

Don't forget, this is the last week to play along in Stampendous' month long Texture challenge, but we'll have a new one for you this weekend!

Thanks for flying by today, I hope you have a great week!  -Cyndi
