Back to School Ellie by Noelene

Hello Crafty Friends, Noelene back today with some D.T. inspiration for the Paper Nest Dolls

For my card today I am using the cute PND Back to School Ellie stamp. This image is perfect to create Thank you or Birthday cards to a special teacher.




I created my card on a 5"x7" base & cut my coloured panels & layered. I created my sentiment in my Silhouette program & cut it out with black vinyl as I was not able to print it onto my notebook paper. I then transfered it onto my card into place. I cut with my Silhoutee, put together & glued my book stack. After colouring my image & creating my book stack I adhered these down using some foam tape for dimension. Lastly I used some enamel sprinkles to embellish.

My Shellabrate Card

Hello Crafty Friends! It's Laurie here! One final mermaid card for MerMay from me! I am sharing My Shellabrate Card as my Design Team Inspiration Card for Paper Nest Dolls using Mermaid Ellie with Seahorse

The Details of My Shellabrate Card


Since it was perfect for my Mermaid theme, I decided to use the Mermaid Tales Collection Kit by Echo Park! The Kit came with paper and stickers. So, I used the “Sparkle & Shine” sticker as well as the paper on my card. The Shellabrate flag was from the Mermaid Dreams Frames & Tags also by Echo Park.

Once I picked my papers, I used the colours from it to colour Ellie with my Copic markers. I used Clear Wink of Stella on her tail and on the fins of the seahorse to add some sparkle just like the sticker said!

Next, I added an angel fish die cut to match the fish in the paper, as well as a shell and seaweed beside the sticker to help ground her.

Finally, for embellishments, I added three dew drops that look like air bubbles to mirror the air bubble paper. I also added a black rhinestone for the fish’s eye.

Welcome Little One Card



Hello Crafty Friends! It’s Laurie here! I am sharing my Welcome Little One Card as my Design Team Inspiration Card for Paper Nest Dolls using Avery with Bird Nest. We discovered a bird nest with some robin eggs on one of our outdoor lights. So, I couldn’t resist creating a card around this miracle! I even used a photo of the eggs in the nest on my card!

The Details of My Welcome Little One Card


For my card, I decided to colour with my Copic markers Avery in similar colours to the eggs and nest but went with a bright red hair for all those gorgeous curls!

Next, I die cut the printed photo with a stitched circle die. I used this same die for all three layers of my “nest” so they would line up when layered. The top two offset layers consisted of leaves in two different greens to add dimension. I also added a few sprigs of leaves emanating from my nest.

I used the border leaf die on the darker DSP behind Avery to tie in my theme and make her stand out from the other DSP.

The sentiment was stamped in Balmy Blue, and one end was cut at an angle with my Paper Snips.

Finally, for embellishments, I added three birds from the Adhesive-Backed Dragonflies & Birds for a bit of sparkle.

Rebels by Noelene

 Happy Star Wars Day everyone!    

Noelene here with you today sharing a card I made using two out of this world images from the Paper Nest Dolls called Rebel Pilot & Furry Rebel.
 



I started with a black 5x7 base. For my image background I wanted a galaxy look, so I took out some of my alcohol inks & added random drops with the chosen colours. I then used a heat gun & blended them around till I achieved my desired look. Once this was dry I then added splatters of diluted Copic Opaque White. Lastly I fussy cut my coloured images & adhered these onto my card with some die cuts & a sentiment.




Copics:
Furry Rebel-
Fur: E42, E43, E47, E49
Belt: C2, C7, C10

Rebel Pilot-
Clothes: B37, B39, E51, E53, E55, C7, C10

Mother’s Day Birdhouse Card

 

Hello Crafty Friends! It's Laurie here! Mother’s Day is only a few weeks away! So, I am sharing my Mother’s Day Birdhouse Card as my Design Team Inspiration Card for Paper Nest Dolls using Avery with Birdhouse Banner

The Details of My Mother’s Day Birdhouse Card

I just love this sweet image with her birdhouse banner! Perfect for a Mother’s Day gift from a little girl! I coloured Avery with my Copic markers in soft purples and pinks to match my Spring Echo Park paper.

For my card, I decided to add a cute die cut birdhouse using the Echo Park papers to match my colouring and Avery’s birdhouse banner. And I couldn’t resist placing a momma bird inside the house by using the Bird Ballet DSP especially since this was a Mother’s Day card!

Next, I added a banner using the different papers that match my colour scheme. This overlayed the stamped Highland Heather sentiment that was die cut with the Scallop Contours Dies. All this was layered onto a larger scalloped Petal Pink piece to complete my focal point.

Finally, for embellishments, I added some Brass Butterflies to match the butterflies on the paper, as well as, added Star Dust Stickles to the hearts on Avery’s outfit.
