Snow Globe Bundle: Warm Winter Wishes

Hello Paper Nest Dolls fans! Betty here on the blog. Ever since I was a kid, I've always loved snow globes. They are just fun to shake and so pretty to watch as the snow comes down. I just love the stamps from the Snow Globe Bundle by Paper Nest Dolls. This bundle comes with 10 stamps that include images and sentiments, all for $10 for a limited time!



To make this A2 top folding card, I first printed the stamp at 3-1/4"W x 3-3/4"H and colored it with Copic markers. I then fussy cut the image leaving a small white border.

Copic Markers used:
Penguin
Black: N9, N5, N3, N1
White: N4, N1, 0
Yellow: Y38, Y35, Y32
Blue Green: BG18, BG15, BG13,BG10
Pink: RV66, RV55, RV63
Brown: E37, E35, E31
snow & Snow globe glass (blue): B01, B00, B000



The patterned papers I used are from Carta Bella and Photoplay. They were perfect for a wintery card. 

I hope you give this snow globe card a try! Digital stamps are so easy to work with and you can make them any size you want.

My Fa La La Card

My Fa La La Card


Hello Crafty Friends! It’s Laurie here! I am sharing My Fa La La Card as my Design Team Inspiration Card for Paper Nest Dolls using Snow Globe Bundle. This Bundle includes a clear snow globe with a selection of images and labels for the holiday season. I love the versatility of this bundle since you can interchange the images in the globe or use the images by themselves.

The Details of My Card


For my card, I decided to use the singing snow people without the globe. They are just too cute, and I had the perfect Fa La La die for them. In fact, I had two Fa La La dies. Lol! The cover plate behind them and the red glimmer falala.

I pulled the colours of the DSP to colour my snow people in a red and a blue/green. I used my favourite technique for their snow bodies where I use two light makers along the edges and then use my colourless blender to soften the transition between the colour and the paper. The same technique was used for their song books.

Since these cuties are singing, I had to add some musical notes floating up from them! Some glimmery snowflakes and snowbank add even more sparkle to my card. The finishing touch was Star Dust Stickles on their hat trim and the hearts.

'Twas the Night Before Christmas by Noelene

 Hello crafty friends, Noelene with you today!

Today is the day of another new release from the Paper Nest Dolls. It is called Christmas Eve & is a Christmas build a nest bundle, so I am showcasing a card I made using some of the elements.




Once I was happy with how my scene looked I printed it out & coloured with Copics. I then cut layers of cardstock to create a 5x7 card.

For my scene I have used the fireplace, sleeping kitty, presents, stockings & Santa from the bundle. When I put the images together it reminded me of one of my favourite all time Christmas books, so I created the sentiment on my computer using the first verse. 




Copics:
Santa & Stockings: C5, R22, R24, R27, R29, W00, W0, W1, W2, C5, C6, C7, C8, C9, E35, Y18
Mantle & Presents: C5, R22, R24, R27, R29, E35, Y18
Candles: YR09, Y15, E50, E51, E53, E55
Fireplace: W1, W3, W4, W5, W6
Cat:C0, C1, C3, C4, R30




The bundle comes with 11 digital stamps to make the perfect scene on your projects.




The Christmas Eve is available in digi here


Thanks for stopping by!

Joy to the World Card

 Joy to the World Card

Hello Crafty Friends! It's Laurie here! I am sharing my Joy to the World Card as my Design Team Inspiration Card for Paper Nest Dolls using Penguin Joy.

The Details of My Card

The Penguin Joy digital stamp comes horizontal, but I thought it would be fun to fussy cut them out and place them vertical like the penguin is balancing the letters. Then, I decided to create a slimline shaker card! Who doesn’t love a fun shaker card!

The slimline cloud die was perfect backdrop for my scene! I just had to add a snowbank that the penguin could balance on and that I could stamp my sentiment. Of course, I had to have some die cut snowflakes falling like on the DSP and to mirror the snowflake sequins. To add more shimmer, I adhered rhinestones to the centre of the die cut snowflakes.

Letter J:
Reds: R29/R24/R24/R22
