My inspiration post for DCRU

Hi everyone and happy happy almost the weekend to you!! :D
Pardon moi for the deja vu if you also visit DCRU's blog. I am doing the inspiration post for today and wanted to share it here as well. I recently purchased my Scalloped Oval Nestabilities from DCRU and fell in love love love with it immediately. Sometimes my nesties stay in their packages for a little while, but these were out of the wrapper immediately!

I love this design, and wanted to share other ways that you can use this awesome set.
Here are some samples of how I've used these large scallops:

First, as a frame behind Miss Anya, paired with Moxxie papers:
(using this week's sketch challenge)

For my next card, I've taken two different sizes of the scallop Spellbinders and turned them into clouds behind Travel Anya. Simply trim off an end and then emboss with the D'vine Swirl Cuttlebug Folder:

The next card features Nana's Kitchen designer paper. I used one of the scallops as a tree:

And finally for dessert:

heehee! Here are the Scalloped Nestabilities as an ice cream sundae. I used papers from Basic Grey  and My Mind's Eye collections, and used scraps of cardstock for the toppings and bowl.
This Spellbinders Scalloped Ovals set is amazing! I have so many other ideas I'd like to try with it, including a thought bubble (wouldn't that be fun for scrapbook jounaling?), a cupcake, shrubby bushes...oh the possibilities! ;)
Claudia has an amazing sale on the entire Spellbinders collection HERE in the store, so be sure to visit! All The Greeting Farm images used in today's posting can be found HERE, also at DCRU.
Thank you so much for visiting today, have a wonderful Thursday everyone!

You are so creative! I don't ever think of using my nesties for anything other than cutting out an image.
