Emma with Squirrel

Hi Paper Nest Dolls Fans! It's Betty here.  Even though it's Fall here in the USA, it's still close to 100 degrees here in Sacramento, California. Fall weather is just around the corner. When I walk in the park, I see the squirrels gathering up all the acorns to store for the winter. It looks like Emma has a pet squirrel and is helping it collect some acorns! Isn't this just too cute? Emma with Squirrel is a digital stamp, which means you can make the image as big or as small as you like. 

I colored this stamp with Copic markers. The colors are listed below.

Teacher Appreciation

Hi Crafty Friends,
Time to HONOR our TRUE HEROES this month and you should show them APPRECIATION ALL YEAR! That's right... I'm talking about TEACHERS! Seriously, the amount of CRAZY they have had to deal with this year, they should be making a BILLION dollars each! My twin sister is a 2nd Grade teacher and a SAINT! The patience she has with the kids, the fun she creates for them in class and remotely is just incredible. They are learn SO MUCH from her and she makes school enjoyable. 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. 

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Who is one of your favorite teachers?
A: Me? I loved my 3rd Grade Teacher Mrs. Hahn.

Here is the step by step of how it slides. If you want to see it in action, head to my Instagram @MadeByMeghanK

That’s Amore Anniversary Card

That's Amore Anniversary Card

Hello Crafty Friends! It's Laurie here sharing my That’s Amore Card for the Design Team of Paper Nest Dolls. This sweet rubber stamp is called Italian Love. I coloured this cute couple to look like my Hubby and me since this card is for my Hubby and our 26th Wedding Anniversary which is today.

This card is my homage to when we first met and started dating in university. The first time I saw him, he was just back from a vacation in Florida. He was so tanned with his hair bleached from the sun. Hence why he is a little more tanned than me in my colouring. Lol! My hubby’s favourite dinner is spaghetti and meatballs. When we were dating, he would take me to Mother’s Pizza Parlour and Spaghetti House with their plastic red and white checked tablecloths for dinner. He would always order his spaghetti with a garlic bread with cheese. We never split it like the couple here, but that would have been so romantic!


Copic Markers:

Skin: E000/00/21/11/04/R20
Girl’s Hair: E30/E31/E33/E35/E37
Dress: R22/R24/R27/R29
Boy’s Hair: E57/E43/E53

Alien Avery - Over the Moon for You


Hello and Happy Wednesday!  It's Amanda here and I'm hoping you're having a fantastic week so far!  I'm happy to be here and share this super sweet Alien Avery card with you today!

To make this card, I printed Alien Avery on 80lb. Neenah Solar White cardstock.  Now, I'm ready to start coloring with my Copic markers.  

Skin:  G20, G40, G43, G24, RV10

Clothes:  R20, R21, R22, Y00, Y11, Y04, B0000, B91, B95

Hair:  E41, E42, E43

I am using my Cutterbees scissors to cut her out.

For my background, I'm using Heffy Doodle's Stargazer Backdrop Die.  I'm going to "flick" white paint to create additional stars.

Using an alcohol-friendly ink pad, I'm stamping some images from Heffy Doodle's You're Weird Stamp Set and My Favorite Thing's Space Explorer Stamp Set.  I'm using the same Copic markers to color these images as well.

Finally, I'm using 3D foam squares and double sided tape to adhere the card together.

Here's another photo of the finished card!

Thank you so much for stopping by the Paper Nest Dolls blog!  I hope you have a great rest of the week!!  Xoxo, Amanda

Alien Avery - New Release

Hello Everyone,

This is my first blog post for Paper Nest Dolls! I am so excited to be here!  I have been on the Design Team for about two months and am having such a fun time coloring the cute stamps and creating projects with them. I love all things crafty, especially paper crafts. I live in Northern California where there are four seasons and we are heading into Fall.

In 10 days, the official start of Fall begins here in the USA, which means 5 weeks until Halloween. This also means, it's time to start making the Halloween and Fall cards, if you haven't started yet. With this COVID-19 pandemic, there probably won't be a lot of Halloween parties, so how about surprising your family and friends with some cute cards? The card I made with the adorable Paper Nest Dolls' new release stamp, Alien Avery, makes the perfect Halloween card. Check out the cute slippers she is wearing! I used the digital version of this stamp and a red rubber stamp will be available soon.

To make this card, I imported the digital image into Silhouette Studio software and did a print and cut of the stamp and colored it with Copic markers (colors are listed below). You can also just print the digital stamp and fussy cut it too.  

I found a cute spaceship with the alien and Take me to Your Candy cut file from the Silhouette Store and cut it out of cardstock using my Cameo. 

For the squiggle mat that is behind Alien Avery, I sprayed Distress Spray Stains and Perfect Pearls Mists (colors are listed below) onto watercolor paper. I let it dry and used the Stamp Anniething Squiggle Mat Die to cut out the mat. I used my Cuttlebug to cut the die.

I used the Greetings word die from Stamp Anniething and cut it out of cardstock. I used Distress Ink to ink the edges of the both of the sentiments. 

I used patterned paper from FreePik.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope I inspired you to start your Halloween and Fall cards. I also have a new blog and hope you can visit and follow me too!

Honoring 9/11 Firemen

Hi Crafty Friends,
Today is the day to HONOR all our FIREMEN that risk their lives on September 11th and the weeks that followed when the Twin Towers fell. I hope this card does these HEROES justice. This is Essential Worker (Fireman) from Paper Nest Dolls. I used Kat Scrappiness Distressed Edge, Zig Zag Nesting, and Cityscape Slimline Dies to create my scene. And to lighten up this post, I have included pictures of my nephew and I playing FIREMAN... at the time I was really into the TV Show Chicago Fire so I bought him a Fireman costume for us to play!

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Where were you on 9/11?
A: Me? I was sitting at my breakfast table getting ready for work as a nanny, needless to say we all stayed home glued to the TV that day
