The Paper Nest's New Release Blog Hop....=)

Welcome to The Paper Nest Dolls' first 
"official" New Release Blog Hop!


Today the very talented and creative design team of The Paper Nest Dolls has put together this hop to share with you projects made using our 9 new stamps!



Digital versions of these stamps regularly sell for $3.00 each, but from today through Friday May 3rd you can get ALL 9 images for only $18 here in our shop!

I made a greeting card using the new Bath Time Ellie. You can find her here!

I was so excited when I was asked to do a project with the adorable stamp, Bath Time Ellie. How truly adorable is she really? You be the judge.....


Hello??? Is she not the cutest EVER? 

 I made this 5.5X5.5" square card out of Gina K card stock. I used Bazill Dark grey and very light pink card stock. The patterned paper was a scrap piece that I had laying around and unfortunately I can not remember who the designer was... =( I used Metal Stickers "photo tabs" for the 2 corners. I sewed all the sections together with white thread. I coloured the big pearls which were from the $ store which RV13. The white pearls are actually made from Liquid Pearls in white. {Remember when using the Liquid Pearls that you make this the last step of your card and let it dry thoroughly, if you lay the card flat to dry you will find they will look more like pearls instead of having a peak on them}. The image and background was cut using Spellbinder's Nestabilities Label 6.

The Copic markers I used are as follows:
Skin: E000, E00, E11 and R20
Hair: E50, E51, E53 and E55
Headband, housecoat and slippers: RV10, RV11, RV13 and RV14 {I also added the polka dots with a Signa Uniball white gel pen}
Pajamas and Teddy: C0, C1, C3 and C5

I apologize I do not have more pictures of this card, normally I would add a closeup, but the closeup's picture was blurry - =(
