Hello Besties Fans!

Happy Solar Eclipse! I hope that you were able to catch a glimpse of it this morning--it was pretty neat! Designer Noelle here with you today to share my next creation using another cutie from the Giggle Box Collection in the shop! This one is called "Scann0085" . I hope that you like what I've created with her!

I colored her with my copic markers using the no-line technique which just means there's no black lines outlining the image. You can do this easily with your digital stamps by changing the brightness to 60% and contrast to -60% when you print your image .  I used some pretty patterned papers by Echo Park from their "Sweet Summertime" line and some enamel dots by Your Next Stamp called "Magic Pastel" from my stash for the layers on the card and inked the edges with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope that I have inspired you to make some creations of your own using Sherri's adorable images. You can find tons of cute images in the shop HERE! You can also see my post over on the Scrapbook Stamp Society Blog. Have a great week!

Mermaid with Sea Turtle

Hello crafty friends!

I hope you like my creation! Here are some details about the challenge which can also be found on the Challenge blog: 

We have changed the way we will be awarding prizes from now on, and there will only be one prize for the overall winner.  The top 3 will still be named and will still have the honor of displaying the Top 3 winner badge on their blog.  From now on, the overall winner will win a Paper Nest Dolls digital image!  So, if you are the overall winner, be sure to send a message to with your choice of image and indicate in the subject line that you are the Monthly Winner.

I colored the image as usual and trimmed with my Tim Holtz/Tonic Studios Scissors.

The cardstock base is made by Bazzill Basics Paper manufactured by American Crafts. The patterned paper is from Echo Park Paper's "Let's Be Mermaids" 6" x 6" Paper Pad.
