Sneak Peek: "Garden Border" and "Garden Accessories"

Hello Crafty Friends! 

I am here to share with you a sneak peek of the upcoming Craftin' Desert Diva's upcoming release! They are releasing a couple super cute die sets called "Garden Border" and "Garden Accessories" which are featured on my cards that I'm showing you today! These dies won't be in the shop until this Friday, May 26th. I hope you like what I've created!

Garden Border 






For this card, I made a shaker card using elements from the new "Garden Border" Die Set, as well as the gnome from "Whimsical Wishes" Clear stamp set, "Flutter By" Digital Stamp and the "Stitched In Circles" Die Set (previously released).

"Garden Accessories"







For this card, I wanted to create a scene using elements from both "Garden Border" and "Garden Accessories" Die Sets. I also used the "Window Pane" Die Set, "Flower Basket Skunk" Digital Stamp and "Beautiful Day" Digital Stamp

Thank you for stopping by! I hope that you've been enjoying all the sneak peeks the team has been sharing. Join us again on Release Day for more inspiration! Have a great day/night!

Guest Designer: "Emma with Gift"

Hello friends!

I am here as a Guest Designer for The Paper Nest Dolls Creative Team for May! As you may know, I am currently designing for the Challenge Team, but Christine gave me the opportunity to guest -- so thank you Christine! Anyway, for the project today, I used "Emma with Gift" which is available in both rubber and digi. I hope you like my project!




I colored the image with my copic markers as usual. I cut the ovals around her with C.C. Designs "Ovals #1" Die Set as well as the "Make A Card #14" Die Set. I inked all of the elements with Distress Ink in "Vintage Photo". I added a few small roses from Wild Orchid Crafts and the pretty patterned paper is from Echo Park's "Party Time" 6" x 6" Pad. Lastly, I used Nuvo Jewel Drops and Glow in the Dark drops for the bottom border.

I colored the images with my copic markers. I don't remember all the combos for this one, so if you're interested just ask and I'll figure it out for you. I die cut some circles using "Stitched-In Circles" Die Set and layered on top of distressed Doodlebug Design papers from their "Happy Camper" line.

Wavy Hair Charlie Card

Hello again, Little Blue Button Fans!


Happy May Day! This time it's for a new release since today is release day over at Little Blue Button Stamps! For my project, I used "Wavy Hair Charlie" Digital Stamp from the release. I hope that you like my card =) !





The image was colored with my copic markers as usual. I added some distress ink for the background around her in "Cracked Pistachio". The cross stitched papers and square dotted papers are made from dies using Lawn Fawn sets. The paper is a combination of Lawn Fawn and Fancy Pants Designs (Life is Beautiful). The edges were also distressed in Ground Espresso ink. The flower banner is by La La Land Crafts. I added some Nuvo Jewel Drops, but they started to run together because they were too close together. I also added a cut out from a Cottage Cutz die called "Garden Friends". The little cloud clip is by Doodlebug Design. 

Copic Color Combos Used:

Skin- E000, E00, E21, E11, E04 and R20
Eyes- W9 and BG000, BG01, BG05
Hair- E41, E43, E44, E47, E49
Dress- BG000, BG01, BG05, BG09
Bow and purple parts of dress- BV000, BV02, BV13, BV08
