Paper Nest Dolls Tootsie Fairy

Good day everyone!  I hope this post finds you happy and able to find time in your busy schedule to make some art today!  Today I'm sharing this cutie, Tootsie Fairy from Paper Nest Dolls.  I purchased this amazing rubber stamp and I love the perfect impression it leaves every time I use it!




This card measures 5 1/2 x 5 1/2.  The. 6 x 6 paper pad I used is Hello Sunshine from Doodlebug Designs.  By the way this paper is adorable!  I used glitter paper for the clouds and to outline Tootsie Fairy and the sentiment.  I used my Winsor Newton Cotman Water Colours and my Prisma Pencils to color her and add dimension.  

I hope this card inspires you to get out your supplies and make something today!  As always thank you so much for stopping by my blog!  If you haven't yet please join my blog it would mean a lot!  I also have a Facebook Page, Dawn G Designs, if you would like to follow me there.

Paper Nest Dolls Brave Princess

Hello Everyone!  I hope you have had time to craft today!  I've been struggling lately and crafting always makes me feel better!  Can you say "Art Therapy!"
To say I'm a little obsessed with Paper Nest Dolls stamps would be an understatement!  LOL!!! I just love these adorable images!  Today's cutie is Brave Princess! If you follow the link it will take you right to the website and her image.  I always buy the rubber stamps because they are of the highest quality and leave a perfect image every time. This little lady was a small challenge with all of that gorgeous wavy hair but I'm pleased with the way she turned out. 


This card is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2.  The paper is My Mind's Eye, Fine and Dandy 6 x 6 pad.  I used my Spellbinder dies, Small Rectangles, to cut the image and it's frame.  I embossed a mat to frame the image.  To highlight the embossed mat I used Spellbinders Isadora Trinkets die. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The seam binding is from my stash. 

All in all I am very pleased with how clean and bright this card looks.

Thank you for stopping by my blog!  I love to read your comments so if you have a moment please leave me a note!

Arabian Princess Paper Nest Dolls

Hi All!  I hope this post finds you well!  Today I am going to show you one of the cards I made from the Paper Nest Dolls Fairytale Line.  All of them are so adorable and eventually I will own them all, don't tell the hubster, lol!  I highly recommend you order the rubber stamps.  They are of the highest quality and leave a perfect impression every time.  Also they are made in the USA, bonus!  This adorable image is called Arabian Princess.  


This is a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card.  I colored her with a couple of different watercolor brands.  Her skin I used Jane Davenport's Neutral pallet.  Her headband and outfit I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brushes and her hair and the tiger I used my Winsor Newton Cotman Watercolors.  I finished coloring her with my Prisma Colored Pencils for the shadowing.  The paper pad is an old one from my stash called Sunny Side by Pebbles.  I die cut the butterflies with my Martha Stewart punches.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I don't remember where the sentiment is from.  When I organized my stamps I didn't always write down the company name.  Sorry, but from this point forward I will!  

This card will be for sale on my Facebook page called Dawn G Designs if your interested in purchasing her.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog and I hope I have inspired you to get your craft on today!!!

Hugs,

I hope this post finds everyone well today and able to get their craft on!  Today I'm showing you this adorable image from Paper Nest Dolls called Ice Princess.  The links I provided will take you right to the website.  I used a rubber stamp to stamp the image and I love the way it came out perfectly!  


This card measures 5 1/2 x 5 1/2.  I stamped Ice Princess on watercolor paper and used my Winsor Newton Cotman Watercolours to color her.  The paper pad I used is Authentique 6 x 6 paper pad called Latest & Greatest.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I die cut the snowflakes out of glitter paper but unfortunately you can't see how sparkly they are.  The sentiment is from my stash.  If you like the Paper Nest Dolls there is a Facebook Page called Paper Nest Dolls Inspiration that has lots of ideas for you as well.  Just follow the link I've provided.

Well that's it for me today!

Magnolia Ribbon Tilda

Hello Everyone!  I hope you having a creative day!  I thought I would share one of my Magnolia cards today.  This sweetheart is Ribbon Tilda and she was so much fun to watercolor!  I masked her out and stamped the cottage and fence to make it look like it was behind her.  For the life of me I can't remember the name of that stamp.  So if you know the name please leave me a comment.  Thanks.


This card is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2.  The 6 x 6 paper pad I used is Serendipity by Basic Grey. I matted all of the layers and distressed them with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  I used my Winsor Newton Cotman Water Colours to color this cutie and the fence.  The sentiment and ribbon are from my stash.  I buy all my flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Well that's it for me today!

If you have a moment please leave me a comment.  I love hearing from you!

Have a blessed day!

Always Be Brave

WOW, I can't believe it's April already!  But here we are and I'm so looking forward to seeing the earth come alive again after winter. 
Any who, let's get talking about the card I made for you today.  This adorable image is Butterfly Princess from Paper Nest Dolls.  I am so pleased with how she turned out.  You can buy her in digital form but the rubber stamps leave a perfect image every single time and I highly recommend them.



Before I tell you how I made this card I want to tell you why I love this sentiment.  I am a breast cancer survivor and now a close friend of mine was diagnosed.  I remember how my husband kept telling me how brave I was and now its my turn to tell my friend and I thought this card was perfect for her.  Ok, enough about me. 😄

This is a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card.  The paper is a 6 x 6 pad called Hello Summer by Echo Park.  The sentiment is from Hampton Art Layering Butterflies Clear Stamp Set.  I tried to find one on line so I could give you the link but it's an older set and I couldn't find it.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I colored the image with my Winsor & Newton Cotman Water Colours.  I also used my Neocolor II Water-soluble wax pastels.  Then I finished up with my Prisma Colored Pencils.

Sooo . . . I'm thinking about doing a giveaway.  So stay tuned! 😉

I love comments so if you can please leave me some love I would appreciate it!

Make it an AWESOME DAY!!!
