Troll Ellie appreciates kindness :)

Hello all from the weirdly warm Northwestern Ontario!  Seriously, it's plus 9 Celsius here today.  That is so weird for us for February!  This is when we would normally be having minus 30 degree weather!  Now, don't get me wrong, I like the warmth, but it also makes me wonder what is coming...

So on that note, I couldn't help but color up a fun and spring themed thank you card for Paper Nest Dolls this week :)  I colored "Troll Ellie" for this card and paired her with some Webster's Pages paper.  I added some die cuts to match and some Nuvo Crystal Drops, and here she is!






You can find the digital stamp version of this image in the online shop at Paper Nest Dolls.

Come and join us for the monthly challenge, you still have time!  The theme is always Anything Goes :)

See you soon!

Hello everyone :)  I hope everyone has evaded the dreaded flu bug that's going around.  Knock on wood, right?

Stamping Bella and Quick Creations

Hello everyone I have a fun winter card for you today, so appropriate for the weather we're having this week!

I have used Stamping Bella/Mo Manning "Valerie with Snowman" stamp set, with paper from the Studio Calico "Print Shop" collection.  I also used some bling from my stash, the Lawn Fawn "Stitched Snowflakes" die set and a sentiment from the CC Designs "Friends Sentiments" clear stamp set.


You can find the linked products above in the Quick Creations online shop, but hurry there...Noelle is closing up shop, so she has everything discounted :)

See you soon with more inspiration!

Gorjuss "Heartfelt" and Quick Creations

Hello everyone, I have another card for you for Quick Creations.

I created a card featuring Santoro/Gorjuss "Heartfelt" rubber stamp, Nuvo Crystal Drops in "Raspberry Pink" and Cottage Cutz "Victorian Butterfly" die, Spectrum "Sparkle" pen and Santoro's Mirabelle 2 paper.


I colored her using my Recollections water color markers.  I added some Sparkle pen to the butterfly flourish die cut and glued it to the back of the image, and then popped the image up on dimensional adhesive.  I added some ribbon from my stash, and add four dots to the corners of the image with the Nuvo.  This was the perfect color to match the paper :)

A Little Under the Sea with Quick Creations and CC Designs

Hello from the wintery white North! Lol.  It is super blustery here this week, which is a nice change from last week's super cold weather :)

I have created three cards for Quick Creations, using the same stamp set and ribbon :)

This stamp set is "Under the Sea" from CC Designs and I know Noelle has a couple left in her store!

The ribbon is from the Kaisercraft "Rock Pool" collection, as well as the paper in the first card.  Both of these are also available in the Quick Creations shop.


 Ok, tell me these cards didn't turn out super cute!  I watercolored these images using my Recollections watercolor markers on cold-pressed paper.  I fussy-cut some elements from the paper pad and layered them up with dimensional adhesive, added the ribbon bow on this one, and called it finished!


 The turtle is definitely a favorite, I've always liked turtles.  I watercolored him as well and popped him up on dimensional adhesive, added the watercolored bubbles to the background and added some "Rock Pool" ribbon to this card as well.


And the last one was just as fun.  I also watercolored the sea horse and more bubbles and also added some Quick Creations' "Mermaid Tales" sequins to this one.  This ribbon is also from the Kaisercraft "Rock Pool" collection.  Three different ribbons from the same set, and they are so cute!

All of the linked products are available in Noelle's online shop at Quick Creations, but she is closing her shop...so go and see what's left!  There are sale prices on many items!

Stay tuned for more inspiration coming up soon!

A Very Happy New Year and some Paper Nest Dolls, and a new challenge :)

Happy New Year everyone!  How did you spend your New Year's Eve?  We spent it with family, which is definitely the best way to go.

It's time for a new challenge at the Paper Nest Dolls, and to start of the new year I have chosen to create using a brand new doll for Valentine's Day!

This is Love Letter Avery:


I colored her using my Copics and Prismacolor pencils, and completed the card using two La La Land dies, ribbon and flowers from my stash, paper from the Webster's Pages "Painted Passport" collection and glitter paper from American Crafts.

I love the way she turned out, she was so much fun to color and create with.

Come and join the challenge, the theme is always anything goes!  The challenge starts today (always the first Monday of the month) and runs till the end of the month, so you have plenty of time to join in!  See you soon :)
