Freebie Friday - Out of the Box Cutting

Out of the box cutting is one of my favorite techniques to do, since I use Nestabilities quite a bit.  Today's Freebie Friday is going to be a Charlotte with a Rose stamp. All you have to do is comment and tell me which die is your favorite?  I honestly use Nestabilities Labels 1 and their regular circles the most.  I still haven't taken the plunge, but I really want the Top Note from SU. 


The lovely Pam Varnell did a wonderful tutorial on this technique for the Club Anya blog.  Here is the link to the tutorial.   http://clubanya.blogspot.com/2009/12/tutorials-out-of-box-cutting-and.html

My friend Shaela Odd made this adorable Christmas card with Scooter Chloe.  You can see that she kept the rest of Chloe's scarf out of the Nestabilities shape. 


You have until Sunday night to comment and I will draw my winner on Monday when I draw the winner for Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge #7. Good luck!

Hi Sparkle

Just checked out the tutorial - simple when you know how - I will have to give it a go. My favourite nesties at the moment are Labels Eight.

Hugs Ali x

I so love the cute little girl on the scooter,such a fab card! I too love doing out of the box die cutting though I didn't realise there was a special name for it lol! I have a HUGE nestie wish list, my favourite from my collection is Nesties scalloped circle,followed closely by my Revolution nesting circles. If you like trying different techniques with Nesties,have a look at the technique that I've created over at my blog.

I only have 3 nestabilities blossom, Label 1, and of course the circle. Most of my die cut shapes are cut from my Cricut. I also have the SU Top Note on my list too, hope to get that soon. Shaela did a wonderful job with her card, love the big flower and her DP she use.

Alanna said...

I love labels 1 as well, it's just such a pretty shape. I also use the circles a lot more than I use the squares or rectangles.

I've been wanting to give this technique a try so thanks for including the tutorial.

Thx for the linkie on the tut!

Okay here's a confession...I have several nesties but haven't used them (good grief!)...I like labels 9 tho:) thx for the inspiration to play with them this weekend! I adore the Christmas card!!!

Kimberly S said...

I've used that technique a few times as well, love the adorable example! Favorite Nesties are the circle and the scallop circle to match. Next favorite is Blossom, since I recently figured out how to make layered flowers with it. lol

Shaela said...

*squeal!* I am so tickled to see one of my cards up here on your blog. :) I didn't start using this technique until recently, but now I am soooo hooked, lol! I like using my circle nesties most of the time, but on occasion I'll use my others ones. I need to invest in the classic rectangles specifically FOR doing this, haha

I'd love to have the circle ones, they have never been in my local store. I use the oval scallops the most, followed by the Large Deckled Rectangles. Thanks for the tutorial too.

I love Nesties, I use many of them but if i had to pick one as a favorite it would have to be the scalloped ovals. I love the card with the girl on the scooter, it is sooooo cute.

Sheng said...

I love the square die. Use it all the time.

This is such a cute cute card.

Crafty Jenn said...

I love my Nesties, but for this technique I usually use my Coluzzle circle or oval. much easier and faster! Or use my paper trimmer to do simple squares and rectangles. Label 4 is definately my fav though!

Great card Shaela!
<3 Jenn

Jacilynn said...

I love nesties too. i use circles the most but also love most of the labels.

Kim Y. said...

Very cute card! Thanks for sharing, Sparkle!

Hmmm...I dont really have a fav but I do find myself using the classic round a lot!

Stampvanwinkle said...

What an adorable image.

This is hard because I use so many of them, but I really like Labels 10.

Blessings,

I love the nestability dies the most, use it in all my cards. My current favorite die is the nestability Label 1. Thanks for the tutorial.

MiamiKel said...

Beautiful holiday card! I love my nestibility ovals - for some reason they are my "go to" nesties most of all!

Marjorie said...

Wonderful tutorial! I'm really going to have to try that in the future. I use my circle nesties the most but I think my favorites are the label 1 and the big blooms. I love making flowers with those blooms!

Elena said...

I really love big blooms Nesties, they are on my wish list! :)I use basic shapes the most (circle, oval, square).
Thank you for sharing a link to the tutorial!

Michelle-a-bella said...

I love anything scalloped!!! I use my nesties scallop squares and circles!!! Love your images by the way and love all the cards! Thanks for sharing!

Jodi said...

I tend to use my circle dies more than any of the others since it is hard to get a good circle any other way.
