My Love Potion Card

 

Hello Crafty Friends! It's Laurie here! I am sharing My Love Potion No. 9 Card as my Design Team Inspiration Card for Paper Nest Dolls using Love Potion Avery from the Love Potion Set. This Set includes 3 stamps which are Love Potion Amara, Love Potion Avery, and the Love Potion.

The Details of My Card

For my card, I decided to create a fun faux shaker card. I have been wanting to make one for a while and thought this would a perfect card for it! My card is super easy and fast to make!

For those of you who don’t know what a faux shaker card is, I used a clear envelope over my project. I then added my shaker bits to the bag and sealed it. Easy peasy!

I love the Valentine Doodlebug paper that I used for the backdrop of my card. The sentiment piece was also from the Doodlebug paper pad, and I just framed it with my colour scheme.

Since I added sequins and hearts as my shaker pieces, I decided to go simple with the other embellishments. I added layered die cut hearts to one corner of the sentiment with a heart gem on top.

The Love Potion Set comes with the Love Potion by itself. So, I coloured it like the one Avery is holding and added it to another corner of the sentiment.

The finishing touch was Glossy Accents to her glasses and beaker and Stickles to the hearts in the potions.

Lovestruck Lulu - Happy Valentine's Day

Hello PND Fans! Betty here today. In just two weeks is Valentine's Day! A quick and fun way of making cards is using digital stamps from Paper Nest Dolls. I made this Valentine's Day card using the adorable the stamp called Lovestruck Lulu. This stamp comes in both digital and red rubber. I used the digital version so that I can get the stamp the same day I order it and make it the size I needed for this card. 



I printed the stamp at 3-1/4" tall and colored it with Copic markers in the following colors:

Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000
Cheeks: E93
Hair: Y28, YR23,YR21, Y21
Pink: V95, RV95, RV93, RV91
Green: YG95,YG93, E81
Silver/Gray: C5, C3, C1



The supplies I used to make this card are:
  • A6 white card base
  • "I Love Love" patterned paper from Scrappy Boy Stamps
  • "Burlesque" patterned paper from Scrappy Boy Stamps
  • Cut & Emboss Heirloom Frames from Stampin' Up
  • Sentiment from The Stamps of Life
  • Heart die cuts from The Stamps of Life Heart Button Dies
  • Pink and white baker's twine

The pink mat underneath the patterned paper and the sentiment are white cardstock with the edges colored with RV93 to match the colored stamp. I could not find colored cardstock to match. 


Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you create some quick and fun Valentines Day cards with this Paper Nest Dolls Lovestruck Lulu stamp! Have a creative week! ~Betty~

Emma's Sweet Friend by Noelene

 Hello Crafty Friends, Noelene here today with some D.T. inspiration for the Paper Nest Dolls
 
It is Summer in the Southern Hemisphere. Although it hasn't been too much of a hot one like past years with wet & sometimes cold weather, I still probably ate too much ice-cream. This brings me to today's card using the sweet PND image called Emma's Sweet Friend.





I created my card on a 5"x7" base. I then cut the polaroid frame with my Silhouette cutting machine & stuck my image behind.




Copics:
Clothes & Bow: RV04, RV09
Hair: E50, E51, E55, E57

Wintertime Wishes Card

 

Hello Crafty Friends! It's Laurie here! I am sharing my Wintertime Wishes Card as my Design Team Inspiration Card for Paper Nest Dolls using the sweet Emma with Snowflake Banner. Don’t you love her beautiful snowflake banner!

The Details of My Card

For my card, I coloured Emma with my Copic markers in one of my favourite colour combos of pinks, blues, and tans! I added Glossy Accents to the hearts on her snowflake banner and Stardust Stickles to her hat pompom, bows and the snowflakes.

The Snowed In Paper was perfect for my card since the knitted snowflake pattern created a cozy warm feel and suited my snowflake theme. Even the “Wintertime” sentiment was from the Paper Pad.

I had the Frostyville Corner Die from Memory Box in my stash and thought it would work for a mini slimline card. I love how it peeks put from under the sentiment creating interest over the knitted snowflake paper! A few more glimmery snowflakes from punches and a die were added for sparkle. To ground Emma, I added a stitched snowbank and ran some Glittered Organdy Ribbon over it to add more sparkle. I also added the ribbon across the top of the so that the sentiment hangs from it.

The finishing touch was a scattering of rhinestones on the knitted paper to add even more sparkle!

We Believe in Santa


Hello Crafty Friends! Merry Christmas! It's Laurie here! I am sharing my We Believe in Santa as my Design Team Inspiration Card for Paper Nest Dolls using Christmas Eve Bundle. This Bundle includes 11 Digital Stamps to make the perfect Christmas Eve scene, or fantastic Christmas Cards. I used 7 of them on this card!

The Details of My Card

For my card, I wanted to create a clean and simple Christmas Eve scene and what better way than with a mini slimline card! I used Word to scale and place all my characters where I wanted them and printed it out. Once that was done, I coloured them with my Copic markers. The only thing add was a sentiment that I die cut and popped up with a few rhinestones.

I also added some stickles to Santa’s trim and the Christmas Tree star, as well as, glossy accents to the ornaments and candle flames.
