Paper Nest Dolls – Ballgown Avery Card

Hello!

Here’s another card using a beautiful stamp from the Paper Nest Dolls. This one is called “Ballgown Avery.” My son asked me to make him a card for his friend’s Quinceañera and I immediately knew this stamp would be perfect since Avery is dressed in a ballgown. I tried to replicate my son’s friend as best as I could, coloring her dress red and hair brown.  After all, red was the color of her actual dress.

Cupcake Avery – Elegant Card

Cupcake Avery 2019-04

Hello!

Here is a another birthday card that I made using a stamp from The Paper Nest Dolls. This stamp is called Cupcake Avery. I also incorporated some of Anna Griffin’s elegant dies and papers and Queen and Company’s flower embellishments.

The card base is from Anna Griffin’s 6 x 6 Perfect Pattern Card Set. The color matches perfectly with the green copic markers that I used to color her dress.

The large square die cut is from Anna Griffin’s All Square Cut and Emboss Dies. First, I die cut shadow layer in the purple glitter card stock.  I applied double sided adhesive to the top solid purple layer before running it through the die cut machine. This made it easier to adhere to the glitter paper.  The green lace die cuts are from the Anna Griffin Lace Edge Die Set and I followed the same procedure as previously stated.

Using hot glue, I adhered the flower embellishments to the front of the card.

You’re Sweet Card using Avery with Lollipop from Paper Nest Dolls

Hello! This card can be used as a Valentine’s Day card, a birthday card, or even an everyday card. I decided to use it as a Valentine’s Day card for my daughter.

I have to begin by saying that I absolutely LOVE the stamps by the Paper Nest Dolls. They remind me of Holly Hobbie Dolls that I had as a child.

To make this card, first I cut out the card base using the Sizzix Card Scallop Drop-ins from The Stamps of Life. The red card stock was some Recollections card stock that I had in my stash that I purchased at Michaels.

The heart paper is from the Recollections “Be Mine” collection which I also purchased from Michaels.

The stamped image is the Avery with Lollipo stamp from the Paper Nest Dolls. I stamped the image using Lawn Fawn’s Premium Jet Black Ink Pad and then colored it with alcohol markers. I fuzzy cut the image and then adhered it to the card front.

The “You’re Sweet” sentiment is from a stamp set that I purchased at Michaels several years ago and unfortunately I don’t have the name of it. I stamped the sentiment using Lawn Fawn’s Premium Jet Black Ink Pad and cut it out and adhered to the card. The gems and ribbon are from my stash.
