Power Poppy Love One Another



Welcome back to Robin's Crafting Nest!


I think I have mentioned this before but I love to color flowers.  Any kind of flowers.
I love that there are so many options with colors and textures that you can do with 
flower petals and flower leaves.  Some of my favorite flower images are created by
Marcella Hawley at Power Poppy.  She comes up with the most beautiful arrangements.
Today I am coloring the "Love One Another" digital stamp set by Power Poppy.
I just love the irises and tulips together in this arrangement.  The color possibilities are endless.
I also love the adorable bugs that have been added to the image as well.  The luna moth and
the luna moth caterpillar were really fun to color.  I can't believe that weird 
looking caterpillar becomes such a beautiful moth.

The Stamp Doctor


Welcome back to Robin's Crafting Nest!

Today I am sharing with you my first shaker card!  This was really fun to make.  All the
dies I used on this card are from The Stamp Doctor!  She has a fantastic 
line of dies to choose from.  

I used 3 different die sets to create my shaker card.  The first Die Set is called 
A2 Card Layers #1.  I used this to create by background layers for the card.
This die set makes it so easy to create many different size mattings.  The second Die 
set that I used is called Circle Frame Set 1.  I thought this set would be perfect to create the 
shaker part of my card.  I used this set to cut out my image, my craft foam to 
make a dimensional frame, a cute little frame, and my acetate.  This set comes with 
6 different circle shapes which you can use to make all kinds of solid shapes and frames.
The dies cut beautifully through the craft foam and the acetate.  The third die set
is called Tags #1 - Stitched.  I used this set to frame my sentiment.

I love fall leaves so I chose to use an image and sentiment from Penny Black.
The clear stamp set is called Grateful.  This stamp set comes with 4 beautiful 
images and 2 fantastic sentiments.



Copic Markers Used:

Leaves: YG17, Y13, Y15, Y19, YR23, YR24, YR27
Acorns: E15, E19, E53, E55
Sentiment: Y15, YR0000, YR000

Shopping List:



I really enjoyed playing with The Stamp Doctor Dies to create my first shaker card.
I can't wait to try different techniques with these dies to see what I can come up with.
I hope you will join us this weekend at Passionate Paper Creations and Friends 
Facebook Group for more inspiration using The Stamp Doctor Dies.

Your Next Stamp Autumn Leaves





Welcome back to Robin's Crafting Nest!

I love all things fall!  The cooler weather, the changing leaves, and
getting pumpkins at the pumpkin patch.  When I saw this adorable fall
stamp from Your Next Stamp I knew I had to color it.  I just love the cute
puppy and birds along with the fantastic fall leaves.  The stamp set is called
Autumn Leaves and it was a great way to practice coloring the fur on the puppy.

I also used some fantastic dies from The Stamp Doctor.  Here I am using her
A2 Card Layers #1 dies.  These dies create the perfect A2 sized card layer and when
used with the smaller dies creates a 1/8" matting.  It make cutting out my layers so easy now.
I am going to get so much use out of this die set.  There is also a coordinating die
set called A2 Card Layers #2 dies which when combined creates 1/16" matting.
So many matting sizes to create.
