Avery in Oz

Hi Crafty Friends,
I was inspired to create this cute card using Paper Nest Dolls Avery in Oz stamp because when I was in 5th grade my twin sister was Dorothy in our school play and I was the tin man. I'm going to send her this card because she thinks she is the BEST singer since she sang Somewhere Over the Rainbow.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Were you ever in a school play?
A: Me? Yes. I was in Snow White ( I was Sleepy) and Wizard of Oz (I was Tinman)

A Goth Family Portrait

Hello Crafty Friends! It's Laurie here sharing my Goth Family Portrait for the Design Team of Paper Nest Dolls. This card incorporates 4 different digital stamps that include Goth Dad, Goth Mom, Goth Boy and Goth Girl from the October New Release to create my family portrait!

A Goth Family Portrait

When I was little, I loved to watch the Addams Family in B&W on TV. I was so excited when I saw this month’s release! I decided to colour the family in the colours from the Addams Family movies. So, I gave them very pale skin, but with dark clothing using only T Copic Markers to achieve the effect. I love the pop of colour with the rose and the alligator. I thought they would want to have their portrait taken in front of some of their ancestors that are hung on the wall. Being a Halloween card, you have to have spider webs with spiders in the corners. I hope you like my take on my family portrait!

Avery with Jack-O-Lantern by Noelene

 Hi all, Noelene here with you today to share another card for my D.T inspiration.
Today I am sharing a card using one of the new images from the newest Halloween stamps from Paper Nest Dolls.

This adorable image is called Avery with Jack-O-Lantern. I coloured her with Copics then made this pretty card using matching Halloween coloured papers.


This image is also great to use for any occasion, not just at Halloween. As you can see from the sentiment I made it for a friend.

Avery with Jack-O-Lantern is available in digi stamp here.

Thanks for stopping by!

Let's Make a Fall Card with Ellie!

Hello PND Fans! It's Betty here with a cute Fall card. It's been another hot week in the 90s here in the Sacramento, California area, but the weather forecast says cooler days are coming. We need the cooler weather for the trees to change colors. I love the beautiful fall colors, just like the colors in this card I made with Paper Nest Dolls' Ellie with Scarecrow stamp. Isn't she just the cutest? This stamp comes in red rubber and in digital

This card is easy to make and you can use any fall colors and patterned paper you have in your stash. All you need are some leaves die cuts and the fence die cut, which is optional. Let's get started!

  • Paper Nest Dolls stamp (links above): I used the digital stamp and printed the image at 3-1/2" tall.
  • Color your stamp using the medium of choice. I used Copic markers (colors are listed below)
  • Distress ink or Distress Oxide - Tumbled Glass
  • Ink Blending Tool
  • Brown cardstock to mat the colored image (2-7/8" x 4-3/8") 
  • White base cardstock: 12" x 6" folded in half
  • Patterned paper, fall design: 5-3/4" x 5-3/4"
  • White cardstock for layering: 4-1/2" x 4-1/2"
  • Solid or tone-on-tone patterned paper for layering (I used orange with dots): 4-3/8" x 4-3/8"
  • Yellow, green and orange cardstock for leaves
  • Leaves die
  • Fall sentiment: I used Microsoft Word and printed the sentiment at 1-1/2" x 3/4" and used my paper trimmer to cut it out at 2-7/8" x 1"
  • Brown cardstock for matting the sentiment at 2" x 1-1/8"
  • Optional item: fence die cut. I used a die from Gina Marie Designs and used a cardstock that had a wood-like pattern.
  • Your favorite adhesive

Cara Mia by Noelene

 Hi all, Noelene back again today to share some D.T inspiration.
Today I am using 2 adorably gooky & spooky images for the new Halloween collection released today. Inspired by the Addams Family movie. I am using Goth Mom & Goth Dad.

I have created a distressed romantic card today. This card is not just a Halloween card, but could be used as a non traditional Valentines Day card or a card for a couple who love all things Gothic. I love these images because they are so versatile.

I decided to do monotone colouring in Copics with my image using the C markers. With the exception of the rose which I coloured in red to stand out.

Goth Mom is available in store here & Goth Dad is available in store here. Make sure you check out Goth Boy & Goth Girl which are now in the store as well. 

I hope you enjoyed my card today! 

Thanks for stopping by!
