Paper Nest Dolls GDT and Christmas Give-away

Hello, Friends. Today I’m sharing a card I made for the December 10th Release of The Paper Nest Dolls stamps. This release has 6 fashion dolls and 2 winter stamps. Pop in at the Inspiration Blog for a peek at the adorable new dolls.

I’m also having a crafty give-away at the end of my post in celebration of Christmas. So stay tuned!

My card features a stamp called “Skiing Ellie.” I made a winter scene for Ellie as she flies down the slopes of powder in the Colorado Mountains. LOL I had to throw that in there. :)

I used some designer papers from BoBunny, Dear Santa collection paired with Bazzill cardstock. This card has loads of texture with embossing powder, snow paste, liquid applique, foil and glitter.

I had so much fun applying the foil on my image. I used Iridescent Deco Foil and my glue pen. It was easy to adhere; just write with the glue pen, let dry, place the foil on and rub with your finger or bone folder. I foiled her goggles, skis, poles and portions of her outerwear. It looks much better in real life as it takes on different colors depending on how the light shines on the foil. A bit of a holographic effect.

Here’s a close up of Ellie colored with Copics. She looks like she could use some hot cocoa with a peppermint candy cane and marshmallows. That's one of my favorite wintertime Holiday beverage.


I hope you enjoyed a look at my card. Now for the fun part…I am giving away some crafty goodies. All you need to do is:

1.  Become a follower if you aren’t already and,
2. Leave a comment and tell me your favorite wintertime Holiday treat or beverage.

I will randomly choose a winner on Christmas Eve. The give-away package has stamps, dies, Distress Ink pads, 6 x 6 paper pads and some other crafty goodies. Good Luck and see you back here on Christmas Eve!


Have a very Merry Christmas!!!

This is just gorgeous Cathy, I love the colour choice and all the pretty die cuts, beautifully done.

Your card has the perfect colour scheme...I'm really loving blue, white and snowflakes this year (perhaps because I live in a hot climate). I love rumballs and also hot chocolate with a marshmallow:)
