Paper Nest Dolls- Mermaid set!

Hello, today I'm featured on the Paper Nest Dolls blog. I've got a couple of cards to show you from the latest Paper Nest Dolls release...

Both of these are from the Mermaid set. You can buy the digital version or in rubber! 



I coloured up the mermaid, seaweed, fish and puffer fish with copics and fussy cut. I then created a background using the Taylored Expressions Go With The Flow stencil; Distress Oxides and Nuvo Glimmer Paste. I then used an MFT die to cut to the rounded tag shape. I then layered some aqua cardstock and added the tag on top. Finally I assembled all the pieces including a heat embossed sentiment. 






I coloured the mermaid and seaweed up with copics and fussy cut along with some seaweed. I created a background using a Taylored Expressions stencil and circle masking stencil and Distress Oxides. I then added a strip of cardstock I'd alcohol ink'd. I assembled all the pieces, added a sentiment and some Raindrops.


Aren't these just the cutest?!! Such a cool variety of mermaid and all the accessories you could ever want for a sea scene! There are 12 images in total in this set!!! 4 mermaids and assorted sea creatures, bubbles, seaweed etc!

Stamping Bella New Release Sneaky Peeks Day 3- Oddball Cinderella, Oddball Snow White and Oddball Bird Set!

So what do you think of the Stamping Bella release so far? AMAZING right?!

Today is the turn of the ODDBALLS and I have to say I think these are my fav Oddballs so far!

Today I am showcasing Oddball Cinderella, Oddball Snow White and Oddball Bird set. First up is Oddball Cinderella....


I coloured the stamp with copics. I then masked her out and made a Distress Oxide background. Then using a white gel pen and Spica Glitter pens and Copic Multiliners I created the magical dust swirl around her. I then fussy cut around her shoes and broom (leaving no white space) so that I could insert a strip of wooden paper underneath them for the floor. I then trimmed the whole panel and wood paper to fit a card blank and adhered down. Finally added the accompanying sentiment. I think this is probably my favourite card of the whole release!

Next up is Oddball Snow White....


I had such fun colouring this image up! I coloured with copics and fussy cut. I created a Distress Oxide background and adhered a Memory Box Forest Archway frame over the top. I added the two images on 3d foam pads and the accompanying sentiment. Finally added some teeny tiny stars.

Last up is Oddball Bird Set....


I just LOVE the expressions on their faces! That's why I chose the "party time" sentiment from the Celebrate And Congratulations Sentiment Set! I coloured in the set with copics and added white gel pen highlights. I then fussy cut. I did some gentle blending with Distress Oxides to create a sky and added a thin strip of DP. I die cut some clouds and adhered to the sky, then I added the stamped items and the sentiment. Finished off with some raindrops.

So that's the fantastic release! Em has knocked it out of the park as usual!  Bet you can't wait to fill your basket, I know I can't!! Don't forget to pop across to the blog to check out the rest of the DT designs and view the entire day's release!

Stamping Bella New Release Sneaky Peek Day 2- Two Gnomes And A Keg, The Gnome In The Hammock, Gnome And The Squirrel and There There Tiny Townie!

Woo hoo! How amazing is this new Stamping Bella release?!! 
And there's more today!! 

Today I am sharing Two Gnomes And A Keg, The Gnome In The Hammock, Gnome And The Squirrel and There There Tiny Townie. 

To start with, here is Two Gnomes And A Keg....


I coloured the image with copics and added some white gel pen highlights. I stamped the accompanying sentiment underneath. Then I masked out the image and ink blended a sky around some masked out clouds. Job done! This is such a great image for the males in your life. This one is definitely going in my basket!!

Next up is The Gnome In the Hammock....


Again, a fab stamp for all those males in your life! I coloured with copics, added some white gel pen highlights and some copic fine liner pen. I fussy cut around the top of the image but leaving the piece beneath which would be the rest of the front panel. I cut a circular aperture in a panel, stuck some DP behind it on the front of the card blank and raised the panel up on 3d foam pads. Then I stuck the image on top, using 3d foam pads and double sided tape where appropriate so it was level. I then die cut some clouds and adhered a panel of flowery DP. I finished with a sentiment from the Celebrate And Congratulate Sentiment set.

Here is The Gnome And The Squirrel.....


I masked out a rectangle and used a stencil to ink blend some leaves onto the front panel. I coloured the images with copics and fussy cut and layered up on 3d foam pads. The sentiment comes with and I added some sequins for sparkle! Such a fab image for Autumnal birthdays!

Last up is There There Tiny Townie....


A fabulous image to send to someone you love right now. Think we could all do with a hug from our friends or sisters :o( I coloured the Tinies with copics (adding white gel pen highlights) and paper pieced her dress and then fussy cut. I adhered a strip of DP and die cut a heart arrangement and adhered different colours of hearts to match their clothes. I adhered the Tinies using 3d foam pads and added the accompanying sentiment using a banner die.

Hope everyone is well and keeping healthy and safe! It's a lovely sunny day here so I thought I'd post a card to match! This is MFT Pure Innocence Fresh Squeezed...


I coloured the stamp with copics, added some white gel pen highlights and then fussy cut. I then restamped out on various patterned papers and paper pieced. I stamped and embossed the sentiment using white embossing powder on pink cardstock and cut using a flag stax. I created an aperture panel to sit on top of the front of the card blank whilst I added strips of DP and some lovely spotty DP beneath. Finally I assembled all the pieces and added some MFT clouds.

Stamping Bella- Uptown Zodiac Girl Pisces!

Hey all.

Hope you're having a good weekend! Today I'm sharing Uptown Zodiac Girl Pisces from Stamping Bella. I coloured her up yonks ago but have only just made her into a card...


I used an acetate card blank from Hero Arts. I created two alcohol inks panels (one for the front and one to back the front panel on the inside of the card using both straight alcohol inks and some pearlised ones to create a gorgeous sea like shimmer. I wanted to use the sentiment from the Under The Sea sentiment set so I stamped and embossed this with silver embossing powder on a piece of acetate. I didn't use it straight on the acetate card blank as I tried it and it warped when heating the embossing powder. I cut the piece of acetate to the same size as the card blank and adhered it to the card blank where I knew the alcohol ink panel was going to be. I then adhered the alcohol ink panels to the outside and inside of the card. I also created a back side to my image in white card so that you couldn't see the bleeding of the copic through the image to neaten it up. I then adhered the image and finished off with some stunning embellishments.


I took a second photo without colour card behind so you could see the sentiment properly!
