My Groovy Love Card

My Groovy Love Card


Hello Crafty Friends! It's Laurie here! I am sharing My Groovy Love Card as my Design Team Inspiration Card for Paper Nest Dolls using Decade Collection Hippie Avery. There are ten dolls in the Decade Collection that come in both rubber and digital stamps. You can find all the digital versions here.


The Details of My Card

For my card, I coloured Avery with my Copic markers to match my Seventies paper! Do you remember when chocolate brown and orange were in? Lol! I just had to give Avery red hair to go with my card!

I love the juxtaposition of the paper with circles and the square retro panel die floating on top. The paper pack included a sheet of sentiments, and I thought the “Let your Love grow tall” matched my card in colours and theme.

The finishing touch was a scattering of rhinestones that I coloured with my Copic markers to match Avery.

A Viking Father’s Day Card


Hello Crafty Friends! It's Laurie here! I am sharing A Viking Father’s Day Card for my Design Team Inspiration for Paper Nest Dolls using the Viking Bundle. This bundle has three characters and two animals - Viking Andrew (with and without the mustache ties), Viking Owen, Viking Dragon, and Viking Boar. I love this bundle and made another card using just Viking Andrew without the mustache ties.

Details of my Card

I thought using Viking Andrew and Viking Owen together would make a perfect Father’s Day card! I had so much fun colouring with my Copic markers this brawny guy and his son in appropriate Viking colours!

For my card, I kept it simple to make the stamps stand out. I used the High Seas Embossing Folder to emboss the waves on Night of Navy card stock. This was placed on a Mossy Meadow card base. Next, I used a frame with Viking imagery that came with the digital papers for the perfect backdrop for my father and son! My simple sentiment was layered on a scrap of the Cozy Winter paper. This paper pack is not just for winter but has all-purpose patterns as well. The finishing touch was the Viking chipboard ship and some black matte dots.

All You Need is Love and a Dog

Hello PND Fans! Betty here today! My favorite classic movie is the Wizard of Oz so when I saw this stamp called Avery in Oz from Paper Nest Dolls, I just had to make a card to go with a gift for a friend that just got a new puppy. This stamp comes in both red rubber and in digital formats. I used the digital stamp so that I can make it the size I want.


I first printed the digital stamp, colored it with Copic markers, then fussy cut her out.

Copic markers used:
Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000
Cheeks: E93
Hair: E59, E57, E55, E53
White: C5, C3, C1, 0
Blue: B28, B24, B23, B21
Red: R29, R24, R22
Basket: YR24, YR23, YR21
Dog fur: E33, E31, E30, W3
Dog nose: W4, W2
White gel pen for stripes on dress


I cut out the card front using an A2 Scalloped Edge Die from Scrappy Boy Stamps and used Distress Oxide Ink in Tumbled Glass and a cloud stencil from Stamp Anniething to create the clouds. I used Distress Oxide in Mowed Lawn to create the grass. I used Distress Oxide in Squeezed Lemonade and Wild Honey and a brick stencil from Stamp Anniething to create the yellow brick road then cut it out using a hill die. At this time, I used my stamp positioner to stamp the sentiment from Penny Black.


I used a rainbow and cloud die from Sonoran Desert Crafts and colored the rainbow using Copic markers R29, YR16, Y15, G05, and B24. Everything is adhered using liquid glue, except for Avery, where I used double-sided adhesive foam tape. I adhered this card front onto a white mat that I cut out using a double stitched A2 die from Gina Marie Designs. I then adhered this onto an A2 top folding card base.


Such a fun stamp to color and card to make. I hope you give this one a try! Thank you for visiting and have a crafty day! ~Betty~

My Grease Lightning Card



Hello Crafty Friends! It's Laurie here! I am sharing My Grease Lightning Card as my Design Team Inspiration Card for Paper Nest Dolls using Decade Collection Greaser Owen and Decade Collection Poodle Skirt Emma. There are ten dolls in the Decade Collection that come in both rubber and digital stamps. You can find all the digital versions here.



The Details of My Card


When I saw these two stamps, I knew that I had to create a card with them both on it! I had a lot of fun colouring them with my Copic markers! I even added Glossy Accents to the milkshake glass and Emma’s glasses.

For my card, I decided to create a 50s diner vibe using the most perfect paper with milk shakes, records, and black/white tiles that I found on Amazon.

I heat embossed with black embossing powder the record from the For the Record Stamp Set twice. Once on gray card stock and once on red card stock. Then, using several circle dies, I die cut the pieces out. I couldn’t resist using the red card stock for the heart part in the centre of the record! And the grooves really show up well with the black embossing on the gray card stock. Don’t you love the sentiments, especially the puny one, that come with the stamp set!



Isn’t the car die so fun! I thought it would suit my 50’s vibe as an homage to Grease Lightning from the movie Grease. The door even opens. So, I had Owen’s leg halfway in almost like he was getting out of the card.

A red rhinestone and several black dot embellishments tie into my colour scheme.

Yabba Dabba Doo! Happy Father's Day to You!

Hi PND Fans! It's Betty here today.  Paper Nest Dolls released the cutest prehistoric family stamp set called Stone Age Family that was inspired by one of my favorite childhood cartoons! This set comes with eight adorable stamps and it comes in both digital and red rubber stamps. It's time to start making some Father's Day cards and this stamp set is perfect for them. So fun to create cards, scrapbook pages, decorations, and more! 

I made this large slimline card that I can showcase several of the stamps with a cute, but simple scene. This slimline card measures 4"W x 9"H. I printed the stamps in the following sizes:
  • House: 2-1/2"H
  • Dinosaur: 2-3/4"H
  • Girl: 2-1/2"H
  • Boy: 2-1/2"H
After printing the stamps, I colored them with Copic markers then fussy cute them out.

Copic markers used:
House: W6, W4, W3, W2, W1
Window: T3
Door: B97, B95, B93, B91
Plants: G99, G94, YG63

Dinosaur:
Purple: V17, V15, V12
Muzzle: V15, V12, V01
Black: C9, C7, C5, C3
Blue: B97, B95, B93
Yellow: Y38, Y35
White: W4, W2, W0, 0


Girl:
Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E50
Cheeks: E93
Hair: E18, E08, YR18, YR14
Blue: B97, B95, B93

Cheeks: E93
Hair: C3, C1, C00
Brown: E79, E77, E74
Bone (White): W3, 0
Yellow: YR27, YR24, YR21


The background is created by using stencils. I used a cloud stencil from Stamp Anniething and Distress Oxide in in Tumbled Glass to create the sky. I masked off the walkway and used Distress Ink in Pumice Stone to create the dirt. I used a cobblestone stencil from Stamp Anniething and the Pumice Stone ink to create the walkway. 

I used a Wonky Stitched Slimline Die from Scrappy Boy Stamps to cut out the card front. I created the sentiment on my computer, printed it, trimmed it, then added a black cardstock mat and adhered it to the card. To finish the card, I adhered the card front onto the slimline card base. 


These stamps are so fun to color! I hope you give this card a try! Thank you for visiting today and I hope you have a wonderful and creative day!
