Ark Bundle by Noelene

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

Today I have created a new baby card using one of the 2022 releases called Ark Bundle.

This cute bundle consists of 5 stamps. I have used the Ark image & placed Noah, the Sheep & Lion on top. You can combine the images as I did or use the images on their own. You could also use this set to create a scene for a Christening/Baptism or Baby Birthday card just to name a few. I do have another theme in mind, which I will share with you at a later date.

Elephants & Seal : N0, N1, N3, N5, R00, R30
Hippos: BV0000, BV000, BV00, BV02
Pig & Hearts: R00, R30, R32
Noah, Ark Lion & Giraffes: E40, E41, E42, E43, E44
Water: B21, B23

Ark Bundle is available in digital stamp here.

Thanks for stopping by!

Emma's Sweet Friend by Noelene

 Hello Crafty Friends, Noelene here today with some D.T. inspiration for the Paper Nest Dolls
It is Summer in the Southern Hemisphere. Although it hasn't been too much of a hot one like past years with wet & sometimes cold weather, I still probably ate too much ice-cream. This brings me to today's card using the sweet PND image called Emma's Sweet Friend.

I created my card on a 5"x7" base. I then cut the polaroid frame with my Silhouette cutting machine & stuck my image behind.

Clothes & Bow: RV04, RV09
Hair: E50, E51, E55, E57
Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, E13, R20

Wintertime Wishes Card


Hello Crafty Friends! It's Laurie here! I am sharing my Wintertime Wishes Card as my Design Team Inspiration Card for Paper Nest Dolls using the sweet Emma with Snowflake Banner. Don’t you love her beautiful snowflake banner!

The Details of My Card

For my card, I coloured Emma with my Copic markers in one of my favourite colour combos of pinks, blues, and tans! I added Glossy Accents to the hearts on her snowflake banner and Stardust Stickles to her hat pompom, bows and the snowflakes.

The Snowed In Paper was perfect for my card since the knitted snowflake pattern created a cozy warm feel and suited my snowflake theme. Even the “Wintertime” sentiment was from the Paper Pad.

I had the Frostyville Corner Die from Memory Box in my stash and thought it would work for a mini slimline card. I love how it peeks put from under the sentiment creating interest over the knitted snowflake paper! A few more glimmery snowflakes from punches and a die were added for sparkle. To ground Emma, I added a stitched snowbank and ran some Glittered Organdy Ribbon over it to add more sparkle. I also added the ribbon across the top of the so that the sentiment hangs from it.

The finishing touch was a scattering of rhinestones on the knitted paper to add even more sparkle!


Copic Markers:

Skin: E000/E00/E21/E11/E04/R20
Hair: E99/YR24/YR23
Blues: B91/B93/B95/B97
