I'll Be Your Umbrella....

I've been having way too much fun with the new Paper Nest Dolls release from April, and I couldn't help but make another card using one of the other FABULOUS images released this month!! 

Here is Avery in Rain Poncho....and if that isn't just the cutest....would you LOOK AT THAT DUCK!!

I paired Avery with some super bright and colorful cardstock in Orange Fizz(MFT), Banana Split(Bazzill), and Blu Raspberry(MFT). I added super cute buttons, ribbon, and brads and spiral clips...cause, it's what I do. The striped border was actually cut out using the Wavy Stitched Border CutUps from The Cat's Pajamas, but then I covered most of it, so yeah, there's that. 

Well, that is it for me for now!! Thanks for stopping by and checking out my work, and have a great day!!

Sending You Some Love....

The new releases from Paper Nest Dolls this past month are just WAY too fabulous. I am in LOVE with the beautiful flower girls, and all their lovely images.

I couldn't chose a favorite, but I chose Daffodil Ellie to start!!

I paired her with some yummy spring themed papers, and added buttons, ruffled ribbon, brads, and spiral clips to make her twice as much fun. 

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my work! Thanks and have a great day!

Spring is in the air...

   Hello everyone, DT Jammie here from rainy Idaho. Never fear though, April showers bring May flowers! Sweet little Avery here is enjoying the little bugs that come out of hiding when spring rolls around. Avery with Fireflies is a new image this month and isn't she just the cutest?
   I used so many Copics to color her, and changed my mind on what colors to use about a million times, that I forgot to write down what ones I used.
   I can tell you that the skin blend I used is E04, E11, E21, E00, E000, and R20. Her Hair is E29 and E37, and a highlight color that I can't recall. Ha ha ha! Sorry guys.  The papers are Stampin' Up! and a few scraps from my bin (it's HUGE, because I'm a paper hoarder), the flowers are from the $1 bin at my local Michael's store, and the Washi Tape is from Recollections.
   This Image can be purchased from the Paper Nest Dolls Shop and she has a few friends all ready for spring that you should check out too.  This card was made to inspire you for our "Anything Goes" challenge going on this month, check back a few posts for full details. You can also check out my blog to see some of my other creations.
   Hope you all have a wonderful week and happy stamping!

Fashion Doll Sailor

Hi Everyone Cindy here, the newest member of the Design Team here at Paper Nest Dolls, with my first Inspiration post for you.

For my project I have used Fashion Doll Sailor. Isn't she just so sweet. I have colored her with Copics,

I then made a lighthouse using a cut file from Silhouette. before assembling the lighthouse I put the blue stripes on using ink and a sponge dauber.  as the base was just plain white. This little lighthouse can double as a candy box as the top section comes off.

After the light house was done I fussy cut out the doll and attached her of to the side, and here is the finished project.

Thanks for looking and see you again soon.
