Simply I love you – Paper Nest Dolls Guest Designer

Hello Everyone,

Today I have some exciting news as I am honoured to be guest designing for Paper Nest Dolls. Christine was so kind to send me the cute Valentine Racoons stamp set and I have created my first card with these adorable critters.

I started with stamping and colouring the kissing couple using Cpipc markers. I stayed within the Warm Greys, just used a little bit of R20 for the cheeks. The little ribbon I coloured vivid pink to match the patterned paper I chose from the Doodlebug Love Notes paper pad. I used my scissors to fussy cut them out.

I wanted a little scene for them so I used a bunch of Lawn Fawn dies to pull it together. I die cut the Stitched cloudy backdrop from light blue cardstock. I cut the grassy hillside borders from a bright green scrap piece and I cut several white frames using the Stitched scallop rectangle frame dies to create dimension.

The sentiment is also die cut from dark grey cardstock using the Scripty I love you die.

I assembled the scene and mounted it on the patterned paper. I used thin 3D foam squares to pop up the racoons in between the grass layers. As a finishing touch I added glossy accents to the ribbon and the noses. Isn’t it a cheeful little scene? Perfect for Spring and in these difficult days it is so good to tell our beloved ones how much we love them!

Thanks for stopping by and hope you will pop in again soon. I am gonna try to share more cheerful inspiration for the #stayhome days.

Take care of yourselves! And try to stay at home as much as possible! Hugs,
