Vannessa's Inspiration post - Pin Wheel Ellie

Good Morning and welcome to another of my inspiration posts for The Paper Nest Dolls. This week I fancied doing another not so frilly, not so pink card as I always tend to veer in those directions when making girly cards.

This time I used the cute Pin Wheel Ellie and used a pin wheel stamp set to make a colourful background. I also avoided the use of pink as well LOL. She has been coloured with Copics and you can read more about her here on my blog post.

And that's all from me for this post folks. Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to join our monthly challenge which finishes very soon!

Inspiration Post: Ice Cream Emma

Hello bloggers!
DT Leslie here with 
today's inspiration post.

The weather here in Ohio has finally
turned HOT!  This has to have been
one of the coolest summers that I can 
remember and also the rainiest!  LOL
                                                           I thought Ice Cream Emma
was the perfect Doll to use because of 
the heat!!

I love how it came out!  
Thanks for stopping by today!

Inspiration Post:
"Prom Avery"

Hello everyone! I am back today with some more inspiration using an image stamp by The Paper Nest Dolls from their July Release!

Anyway, there are more details on my blog including color combos, so feel free to check that out :) Also, be sure and enter the monthly "Anything Goes" challenge here on The Paper Nest Dolls Challenge Blog.

Vannessa's Inspiration Post - Hula Girl Ellie

Good Morning and Happy Summer. The summer has finally arrived here in the UK and we are getting lots of warm sunshine at last, along with showers of rain though - typical British summer weather!

Inspired by the summer holidays that are very shortly going to be here I made a summer beach themed card using the gorgeous Hula Girl Ellie and coloured her in with my Copics.

You read more about her here on my blogpost.

Happy Summer Days!
