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!

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!

  • Solid or tone-on-tone patterned paper for layering (I used orange with dots): 4-3/8" x 4-3/8"

  • 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.

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!

Spooky Double Z-Fold Halloween Card

Hello Crafty Friends! It's Laurie here sharing my Spooky Double Z-Fold Halloween Card for the Design Team of Paper Nest Dolls. I had so much fun colouring with my Copic Markers these cuties from the Spooky House Set (7 Stamps). This set comes with 7 stamps including 6 characters and a haunted house. I used the digital stamps, but this set also comes in rubber and can be found in the store here

Spooky Z-Fold Halloween Card

I had a ton of fun creating this spooky double z-fold card for our trick-or-treaters who are out roaming around! Do they dare go to the eerily spooky house on the hill??? The pirate and the ghost are headed that way!

Spooky Z-Fold Halloween Card Flat

To create my spooky night sky, I used a technique called the Copic Galaxy Background. For the galaxy stars, I used my Tim Holtz Distress Splatter Brush. I also used a White Gelly Roll Pen and the Colorless Blender, to make my some of my stars appear brighter/closer.

Galaxy Sky

Next I used Tim Holtz Squeezed Lemonade, Carved Pumpkin and Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink Pads with a Round Blending Tool to create my glowing moon on a stitched circle die. I used the Splatter Brush again to splatter water onto the moon to give a bit of texture once it was dry.

I love the Spooky House that comes with this set! I had fun colouring it, especially those glowing windows and doorway! In addition to colouring them, I use a paint brush and painted a thin layer of Apple Sour Nuvo Glow Drops. I wanted the details of the broken panes of glass and the spider to still be seen, but when you turn out the lights, the windows and door glow spookily.

Most of her students come back year after year to say HI even through college! She has positively impacted SO MANY LIVES, I'm in AWE and so PROUD to be her sister.
I created this slider card for her using Paper Nest Dolls Teacher Emma and Paper Nest Dolls Super Girl Emma.
