. . . I love this one too!! Actually, it is a combination of the die template that I used on Tuesday called Nested Medallion Labels and a new one called Nested Oval Medallion Labels. I’ve used two of the latter together, stacking them then turning one 90 degrees. It was pure serendipity that the resulting shape matches the Nested Medallion Label shape. When I cut out my roses using the Nested Medallion Labels, it is slightly larger and makes for a great matting behind my intertwined shapes. I pulled the pointed corners through and it gives a cool look. (Available now, these dies are made through the Spellbinders Custom Product Program and are exclusive to JustRite Stampers!)
It’s been ages since I tried to color anything – I’m never quite sure what I’m going to end up with. Have a peek at this new set from JustRite Stampers called With Sympathy – this is a large format 6″ x 8″ set which is larger than the sets you’ve seen in the past. If you’ve visited me before when I’ve stumbled on a great image, you’ll hear me raving about shading. Well get ready for the rave, the roses in this set are already shaded so that people who are more challenged with coloring (like me), don’t have to. I used three colors of Distress Ink and dry brushed the roses with one color – Stormy Sky and the leaves with two shades – Forest Moss and Peeled Paint. It doesn’t get any simpler than that. I didn’t go for full watercoloring because I stamped on design paper and I didn’t want it to buckle from the moisture. By keeping my brush nearly dry, I could get intense ink in the nooks and crannies of the rose without slopping lots of color around. The end result is that it looks like you fussed around alot but you didn’t!
Because my main panel is rather large, I offset it by hanging a small tag from JustRite Charm Dies with my small sentiment to balance out the card. The bow is my favorite figure eight loops bow made on The Peg Bow Maker with 5 wraps on the 2 1/2 inch width setting.

I hope 2012 is a great year for you! Thanks for sharing!!
What a beautiful card you are sharing with us today Becca. You say your can’t colour but those roses are beautiful and I love the way you twist and turn the spellbinder dies to get something you like…so clever!
My heart kept beating faster and faster with excitement as I read your post this morning. Becca, how does your brain work?!? God has blessed you with an incredible eye for design! You see things so different than anyone else and then can pull them off with incredible beauty! Thank you for sharing your time and talent with the world. Thank you also for taking the time to make your visual aid today. I just couldn’t understand until then how you put together that beautiful nest. You are AMAZING!
GORGEOUS!! I always appreciate your tutorials/photographs that so clearly explain your technique. For example, this time, the stenciling of the blue ink between the dies. VERY SMART, and super nice! (that is, just like YOU!)
Ellen ~ CardMonkey
Good Gravy! Ok, you are absolutely NOT coloring impaired! I watercolor and I am completely impressed with your coloring skills and your card!!! I am in love with it :)
This is gorgeous!!!! And how you come up with these things is just unbelievable…..I love this….the ink coloring is something I know to do….but do I do it…no….if you have the time…please show us how you do it…..it’s just beautiful…..
Another beautiful card. Amazing talent you have for sure. :)
OMGosh! Gorgeous gorgeous! Love those new nesties! Adding them to my gotta have list? lol Your work is beautiful, I so enjoy your site!
This is gorgeous, Becca!!! You are definitely blessed with the ability to put all these elements together and have it look so beautiful!!!
Blue is one of my favorite colors, and I LOVE everything about this card!
The lace is such a beautiful accent and the matching ribbon you chose is stunning. Clever idea with the nesting of the medallions;)
Oh my goodness! This card is spectacular! I just love the colors, and your use of the dies is perfect! You always do such interesting things with your dies and combining them to create something unique! Truly beautiful!
WoW!!!! How on earth do you come up with sooooooo many fantastic ideas and techniques. I wish I had a quarter of your talent, and I’d be very happy. So glad I found here xxx
I love the way you experiment with these dies. I would never think about pulling the corners through. I really like these new dies and I love your card. Hope you are feeling better. Thanks for the chance to win this candy.
Oh my goodness, this is so beautiful Becca. I love the color, and I love the bow and I love the sentiment and the roses, so I actually just LOVE LOVE LOVE this entire project here to pieces. It´s so gorgeous. You always make such wonderful creations hun and I´m so impressed by it. Stunning work again hun as always.
Becca I LOVE those roses… they were the first things i noticed… I was thinking how lovely the shading was!! Too funny… I like how you layered this card… and I love how your instructions include your thought processes in your design choices.
What a pretty card!! The blue looks so fresh in your design. I love all of the layers. They give the card so much depth and texture. Thank you so much, Becca. This is quite an inspiration.
Gorgeousness at its best! You are a master, Becca!
Stunning card, Becca. How lucky to get to play with all these fab dies. Love the colour you have chosen & as usual, the bow is perfection.
All I can say is WOW and I can’t wait to try this.
Thanks for sharing the visual steps! I find this very helpful in visualizing your steps. You always have such beautiful cards that inspire. The individual steps towards the final result help simplify the end intricacy. I LOVE your cards!
This is gorgeous. Love the layering and the pretty blue roses.
Such a soothing blue… I shall have to take another look at my Stormy Sky Distress Ink and try it as you have because I love the outcome! I have a friend in the display business who gave me huge sheets of magnetic material that are left over from projects they do. Most are about 2 feet by 2 feet. Next on my list for the new year is getting that up on the side of my cabinet to hold my Spellbinders dies. Right now I keep them all in the packages they came in which I slit with my exacto or cut with scissors to gain access. I have cut myself on the plastic and need a better way to store these.
Thanks for the reminders on the blog candy Becca! :) I ALREADY got that done this morning with your earlier posts! But, it is SOOO NICE to be reminded you know, incase we get SOOOO BUSY!!!!!!! :)
Your card is GORGEOUS today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The IMAGE, the COLORS you chose, the DIES, WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Beautiful card and I love the new dies. I am a Spellbinderholic if there is such a thing. I hope you are feeling better and if you need any help organizing, let me be the first to offer. I would hope that some of your creativity would rub off onto me while I was helping.
Stunning card! Love the shapes and colors.
GORGEOUS! Simply gorgeous Becca.
Another beauty!! What an elegant card, love your bow and your embellished stick pins!!!

Stunning!!! The nest medallion set is so clever and you displayed it beautifully!!!
Gosh this is absoluetly beautiful. Love the frames and colors, those roses are amazing.
This is one yummy card. Love the medallions, the colors and lace look like
icing. I was trying to tell by your list what the blue and white paper underneath is. Such a pretty print and color. Is it from Memory box or ? Is there a name for it?
Oh, meant to tell you thanks for the visual, it makes it so much easier to see what you have done to make the card.
Beautiful job Becca… Love how it turned out…
Your color choices are so pretty and calming. The roses are so pretty, and the new frames can work in so many ways! Great combination. Thanks for sharing, Jamie
This is beautiful Becca! I love how you layer your Nesties! These die-cuts are gorgeous too!
Today you knock me out . Beautiful!

It is so fun to have a master so I can just improve my work.
Oh my, what a gorgeous card. There have been alot of blue colored cards lately and I think they are just stunning. TFS your card with us!!!
Love these blue roses and I don’t usually like rose images because they are just never as good as the ones that are found in nature but these are lovely. And those dies. . .. to die for!
This card is most stunning. You always come up with such good combinations of nesties. Great job
Amazing. You have talent beyond description.
OHG, wonderful card and new dies…hope I will have as good ideas as you when I start scrapbooking this year. Hope as well that I will be able to buy these eventually.
Becca, this card is so beautiful. I love the layering, stamps, dies, peg bow and lace. Maybe one day I can make cards like you. It will be my goal for this year.

thank you Becca for the tutorial on how you put this one together. I find this so very very helpfull. Your cards are just amazing and this new die set is gorgous. Oh how I would love to own this one. Dreams are a wonderful thing.
Simply stunning Becca – and the colour scheme is perfect. just love the blue. Never do many cards in blue as I always felt that blue was for boys but your blew that thought away.
Gorgeous card with all the layers and I love that you used blue!! I love the little sentiment you chose. Another crafting goal I will continue to keep again this year is learning new techniques and tips to keep my card making new and fresh.
Girlfriend you can work a set of dies. Happy New Year and thanks for sharing. Hugs… ;-)
This card is amazing Becca. U used my fav color…blue. Plus I love, love flowers. And spellbinders dies and other dies, are some of my most favorite things to play with. Between my cuddlebug and Big Shot….I make a lot of things to use when I am creating cards. Then I have lots of top notes, circles, squares etc. on hand to use. Thanks for sharing this fantastic card. evette
this is gorgeous!
Gorgeous layering of the dies, beautiful coloring of the flowers and love the softness of the paper and lace!
Thank you so much for showing how your card was assembled in this post!! I have read each post and sometimes spent soooo long trying to work out how all the layers were put together. This idea to show how it was done was a brilliant one, thanks so much! Hope you continue to be able to make such amazing cards, and that you get your problems with your foot and hip sorted out soon. I know what it is like to have to live with continuous pain. Love from Australia.
Amazing! You have wowed me again! How do you do it? I love everything about this card, I expecially love how you show us how you do it. Thank you!
Your card is beautiful and I saw the rest of the cards on the other designers blogs and really love this stamp set with the sentiments. I really need this one in my hands. It seems like there have been so many deaths from our church recently that I need to make some cards to have on hand. It’s to much pressure to whip one out right away. Thanks for sharing and I like the steps you took to share with us like Linda mentioned.
Hugs and God Bless
Your card is stunning Becca, love how you have embellished it, the lace is very pretty. The stick-pins really standout they are just so lovely. Your coloring is just superb and done in blue just makes my heart happy. Thanks for the step-outs on how you did the die-cuts. Beautiful work. As always Becca, TFS!!! :-D
Becca, you continue to out do yourself! I love this card and really appreciate the detailed instructions you provide. Here is another couple of items that I need to add to my wish list!
Gorgeous… as usual
Another very Beautiful Card
everything you make is awesome
Love it !! Love it !!
So pretty! Thanks for showing us how!
Your card is so feminine and so many sweet details, right down to the little leaves poking out of the medallions and the sparkly little pins stuck in the dainty little bow. Beautiful!
Thank you for sharing! :)
AMAZING! TFS. Your creativity just blows me away.
Fantastic card Becca and I love the two new Nesties. Thanks so much for the step-by-step tutorial on how your built your card.
Just amazing! I love this new die set. I love the effect of stamping over text. Just beautiful!
A beautiful card! I love the shades of blue you used and the lace is gorgeous. Both of these dies are so versatile and are a must have for us Spellbinders fans!! Thanks for the picture tutorial too.
Lovely! I really like all the new stamps and dies from Justrite. Thanks for showing us the break-down of the layering of the die cuts. It takes a design from complex to do-able. It always helps me to “see” how you do things.
Becca, I love how you layered your frames. The roses on top of the patterned paper are beautiful. Gorgeous coloring and ribbon!
Happy New Year!
Hugs and smiles
Lovely card and I really like the quote. Will have to look into getting that one.
This is another one of your best. How do you do it? You make a practice of amazing me, card after card. Thanks for sharing this.
This is a very pretty card! I have these new dies and stamps on order, just love them!
Beautiful! The colors, the lace, the nested shapes…..
WOW! This is stunning! Love the way you built your card. I’m definitely going to get those dies and the stamp set. Thanks for sharing!
That is beautiful! Thanks for showing all the steps!
Abosutely a beautiful card!
As always, another simply gorgeous creation!!
Becca, your card is gorgeous. I’m so excited to be working with you :)
What a lovely card! I love that you’ve chosen to use blue: the gorgeous background paper, the perfect bow, the exquisite roses, and the Scripture. I think I may have to purchase that stamp set; unfortunately, I have made more sympathy cards in the past year than I ever did. (Guess that partly comes from getting older.) Oh, and I forgot the sweet lace that ties everything together. Beautiful!!
You’ve got amazing talent! I look at your blogs all the time and sit in silence but I wanted you to know, you really INSPIRE me! Hope your hip is feeling better this week! Thanks for the gorgeous cards!
The inspiration you pass on to us using the scriptures in your cards is always such a blessing! The Lord must be so happy knowing how much you love Him! God bless you!
I have been an avid fan of all the cards you make! My favorite for 2011 was number 2610. You are truly blessed to be able to make such awesome cards – please keep this up (you truly inspire me, and I have purchased most of my Spellbinder dies based on your creations). Please let us know what new Spellbinders are available as soon as you have returned from the CHA show. Blessed greetings, Merle Perkins
So subtle – and beautiful!
You are so generous in sharing your creations with us, Becca.
Wishing you and yours a blessed and happy new year.

Becca, I love all your cards. You never disappoint!! Even, if your card (on a particular day) doesn’t inspire me to craft a similar project, it does always start my day with inspiration. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I love the work you do.
Good looking card. Thanks for the step-by-step instructions on using the dies.
Guess I’ll be cruising over to the JR website to check these out! I love what you do with all of the Just Rite stuff, it really is amazing. It would not have occurred to me to cut a diecut in half!
Your card is gorgeous and the blue color is just icing.
Your card is stunningly gorgeous. Thanks so much for your inspiration. Awesome!!!!

Fabulous card! I love the blue. It’s oh so pretty.
Marvelous, Becca! This reminds me of blue/white dishes. I love that style! Your choice of stamping on typeface is excellent as it really adds to the lovely coloring on the beautiful rose stamp. Great stacking and combining the dies, perfect tag…love it all!
