My Favorite Song Card

Hello Crafty Friends! It's Laurie here! I am sharing My Favorite Song Card as my Design Team Inspiration Card for Paper Nest Dolls using Decade Collection Roller Skating Ellie. There are ten dolls in the Decade Collection that come in both rubber and digital stamps. You can find all the digital versions here.


The Details of My Favorite Song Card

I had coloured this stamp with my Copic markers a while back…in fact, since I liked her so much, I coloured her twice at the time! Lol! So, I decided to finally get this one onto a card especially since I bought the perfect Walkman dies by My Favorite Things!

For my card, I thought that the Walkman would make a fun shaker. So, I built my Walkman using the dies and even added four layers to the red foam ear pieces to give them some dimension! I used a Window Sheet for where my shaker sequins would go. Once that was built, I added Foam Adhesive Strips between the top and the cassette paper to enclose my sequins. I thought that the cassette paper was a great backing for my Walkman! The skates and disco ball paper behind my focal point was perfect for my theme!

The sentiment was from a retired Stampin’ Up! Stamp Set, but you could easily type this out on your computer and printing it. It was stamped in black ink and die cut out using the Stitched Rectangles.

To add some sparkle to the card, I used Stickles on Ellie’s pompoms on her skates. For the musical notes, I used holographic paper to give them an iridescent look! Very hip for the 80’s. Lol! The final touch was adding Glossy Accents to her Walkman case.

Baby Animal Train by Noelene

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

 Today I have a baby girl's card to show you, using 3 out of the 5 adorable images in the Baby Animal Train set from PND.



I have used the no lines technique to colour my images up. This is not something I do often as I am not confident to do so, although I love how it turned out! I should try it more often! I then created a simple slimline card with some enamel dots to embelish & finished of with raised sentiments.




Copics:
Violets: BV0000, BV000, BV00, BV02
Yellows: E40, E41, E42, E43, E44
Pinks: RV10, RV11, RV13

Amara with Donut by Noelene

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


 I have made a birthday card using the super sweet image called "Amara with Donut".




 I created my card on a 5"x7" base with some pretty sprinkled patterned paper in the background. After printing & colouring my image I created some donuts to embellish, using a die set & stuck them all over the paper. Now let me tell you, yes all of those sprinkles were individually glued on, one by one! Phew! You can say I bit off more than I could chew, "no pun intended", haha. Although I love how it turned out in the end and I think it was worth every sprinkle. What do you think?




Copics:
Donut: E31, E33, E35, RV09, Y08, G09, B04, R81, R83, R85
Clothes & Shoes: Y02, Y04, Y08, RV21, RV23, RV25

My Kitty Love Card


Hello Crafty Friends! It's Laurie here! I am sharing My Kitty Love Card as my Design Team Inspiration Card for Paper Nest Dolls using the New Release Kitty Love with the Snow Globe Bundle!

The Details of My Kitty Love Card

For my card, I decided to combine the Snow Globe Bundle with the Kitty Love stamp since the kitty fits so perfectly in the snow globe! I used Microsoft Word to size and insert the kitty into the globe. In addition, I used Word to add Happy Valentine’s Day to the plaque on the base.

I haven’t coloured a snow globe before and wanted to challenge myself. So, I used the 3.0 Mini Class Bundle from Kit and Clowder as a reference and used my Copic markers to colour the image. It was a lot of fun getting the shine on the glass! Once it was coloured, I added Glossy Accents to the plaque on the globe base and Stickles to all the hearts.

I decided to use the French Kiss Doodlebug Paper since it had hearts, envelopes, and happy mail on it. Perfect for my card! To ground the snow globe, I used a solid piece of red paper that was already embossed with hearts to add to my Valentine theme.

Next, I added some die cut hearts in opposite corners for balance. A die cut glassine envelope with die cut hearts inside and an adhesive-backed heart to seal it was added to mirror the letters in the mailbox. 

For embellishments, I used a piece of white lace trim and white resin hearts.

Season to be Freezin’ Card

Hello Crafty Friends! It's Laurie here! I am sharing my Season to be Freezin’ Card as my Design Team Inspiration Card for Paper Nest Dolls using Yeti with Tree. Paper Nest Dolls has several Yeti stamps to the point you could have a whole Yeti family!

The Details of My Season to be Freezin’ Card

For my Yeti, I had coloured him with my Copic markers before Christmas but didn’t get a chance to get him onto a card. So, I decided to create a winter themed card for him. I coloured his fur texture with individual strokes in the shadows and left the highlights white. The tree was also coloured with individual strokes to create lots of texture.

The Doodlebug paper that I used, had Yetis on it, but I went with more neutral papers to create my wintery scene. The sentiment was from the matching Chit Chat and was perfect for my wintery theme.

Next, I added a birch tree die cut for my wintery scene and, to add interest, I used a Stitched Hillside Die to complete my scene.

For embellishments, I used some wooden snowflakes that I had in my stash for that rustic look.

Elf Avery with Candy Cane & Reindeer Ellie with Ornament

 Hello Crafty Friends, Noelene here today, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. I am just popping in to share 2 more Christmas cards before we ring in the new year.

Today I am sharing some D.T. inspiration for The Paper Nest Dolls & Xpress-It, using the digital stamps called Elf Avery with Candy Cane & Reindeer Ellie with Ornament, and some glitter deco tape.




For my cards I have created a 5x7 mat base. I then coloured my images & trimmed to size. For my Elf Avery card I cut a strip of paper slightly smaller than my base & stuck down 2 strips of each colour of Glitter Deco Tape. I then glued die cut letters on top to make my "MERRY" sentiment. You can see a video of how I did this on Instagram here.

For my Reindeer Ellie card it was the same process using only one strip of the Glitter Deco Tape then after adding the Glitter Deco Tape I ran my cardstock through the die cutting machine using some bauble dies. I then added some glitter thread & gems to embellish.

Clothes & Candy Cane: BG000, BG01, BG02, BG05, RV00, RV63, RV66, BG10, BG15

North Pole Mini Santa by Noelene

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

Today I created a card using one of my favourite Santa images from PND called North Pole Mini Santa.




Recently I had the oppurtunity to try out some Gold Leaf Flakes from X-press It! I started out by blending some alcohol markers onto X-press It Blending Card. Once this was dry I brushed lightly some X-press It Gold Size adhesive in small amounts where I wanted my Gold Leaf Flakes to go. After 10 minutes of curing I lightly brushed on my Gold Leaf Flakes over the areas I added the adhesive. I then created a 5x7 base to create my card using the blended base for the background before adding my coloured image on top to finish off with a die cut sentiment on top! I even added the Gold Leaf Flakes to the sentiment. I love how it turned out!




Copics:
Hair & Fur: C1, C2, C3, C5, C7, C9
Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, E13, 
Clothes: R20, R22, R24, R27, R29

North Pole Mini Santa is available in digital stamp here




This stamps is also available in rubber as part of the North Pole set here.
