Dutch Girl by Laurie Large

This beautiful card was done by Laurie Large with our Dutch Girl Avery stamp.  The die cuts provide great shape and form to the paper while the floral embellishments accentuate the color pallet of the image.  The golden clogs, blonde braided hair, soft green and yellow tulips, and gray tones in the clothing are perfect for this image.  The pearls work well with the butterflies for added elegance.  Lastly, the gray ribbon bow makes a perfect final touch for this card.  You can see this card, as well as other products by Laurie Large by clicking HERE.

Birthday Owen by Siv Ella Anderson

Today I want to share a card with you made by Siv Ella Anderson using our stamp Birthday Owen.  She chose great paper and embellishments for a boy card.  The conservative paper design is perfect with the dark red buttons and staples.  The slight distressing of the edges is reminiscent of the play clothes of a young, mischievous, six year old boy.  This is a great card!  You can find more of her excellent work by clicking HERE.

Posh Princess by Katie Tate

Good Morning!
Today I have another card showcased here on the Paper Nest Dolls blog to share with you :)

Card Recipe:
Image - Posh Princess
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - Fairytale Princess by The Paper Studio
Sentiment and Castle - Little Princess by Karen Foster
Flowers - Prima (large) and Recollections (small)
Glitter Dots - Recollections
Oval Die - Polynesian Sails Oval by Cheery Lynn Designs

The horse and carriage were on the sticker sheet I found and I thought they were a great embellishment for inside the card on the message mat.

Now I don't know so much about her being a "Posh Princess" I think with her Doc Martens she looks more like a "Punk Princess" but no matter what I still love her and hope that you do too.

Senorita Ellie

Today is a very sad post for me today as it's my last one being a DT here at the Paper Nest Dolls. I have enjoyed my time immensely here and Christine is once of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet. Thank you so much for letting me be part of your team for so long Christine and I know that you are going to go far.

Today I'm sharing with you my favourite doll of all time.... Senorita Ellie...

I mean who wouldn't love her?!?! Just look at those locks! I think you could change this stamp up a lot just by changing the dress colours.

She is just a must have for all of the little girls in your life. ..... ok and maybe big girls too ;)

Thank you so much for popping by!

Copic Hair Color 52...

Heather Huggins - The Paper Nest Dolls - Copic Hair Color

Hey everyone Heather here from Heather's Hobbie Haven.

Wow this is hair color 52.
That means I've been posting every Tuesday for a whole year.
I sure hope you had fun coloring with me.
I hope you started or are working on a swatch book of you're own.
I hope you found a few favorite colors to use.
But most of all I hope you use some of the colors we've done.

The order I colored her:


I color from dark to light, but if you color from light to dark that's great to.
Just reverse the color order.

Thanks for joining me to color.
You can always head over to my blog Heather's Hobbie Haven
and see all the Hair colors there.
I've been adding new ones there since I've been posting here.
So there are a lot more to choose from.

Schoolgirl Avery by Katie Tate

Katie from Both Sides of The Paper here to share a little school themed card featuring Schoolgirl Avery

Card Recipe:
Image - Schoolgirl Avery
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper and Sentiment - Colorbok
Borders - O'Scrap
Spotted Brads - The Paper Studio

The sentiment tag on the front had a little brown gingham topper so I found a little piece of matching ribbon for the inside.

I happened to have a tiny premade bow that was just the right color and so I popped it on Avery head, so cute!
I really hope you liked this little gal :)
