Happy Earth Day

Hello Crafty Friends! It's Laurie here! I am sharing my Earth Day Card as my Design Team Inspiration Card for Paper Nest Dolls using the cute digital stamp Ellie With Flower Pot.

My Design Team Card

For those that don’t know what Earth Day is, it is an annual celebration that honours the achievements of the environmental movement and raises awareness of the need to protect Earth's natural resources for future generations. Earth Day is celebrated on April 22.

I thought Ellie With Flower Pot was perfect for my Earth Day Card! So, I coloured her with my Copic markers. I used recycled paper including some cardboard that I repurposed. The Green Stack is 70% recycled paper. The piece behind Ellie has such words as Wonderful World, Go Green, Blue Skies, Environment, Earth, Green Trees, etc. Perfect for an Earth Day card! The cardboard was some that I had kicking around the house. I pulled it apart and kept the middle corrugated part that I tore to fit my card. I just loved using all these recycled bits for my Earth Day card!

April new release: Rainy Day Owen

Hi PND Fans! Betty back with a card using a new release! "When life throws you a rainy day, play in the puddles!" Do you know what this means? It means that if you planned for something, but it did not go as planned, then make the best of what you have. You take that rainy day and turn it into something extraordinary. I thought this sentiment was perfect for this April new release stamp by Paper Nest Dolls called Rainy Day Owen.  This stamp comes in digital format and in red rubber (soon).


I made an A6 size card using the digital version of the stamp. This way, I can make the image as large as I want. I first printed the stamp and then colored it using Copic markers. I used the markers to make the rain showers. Colors are listed below.


Copic markers used:
Hair: E99, E97, E55, E53
Skin: R56, E11, E21, E00, E000
Blue clothes & boots: B39, B37, B26, B24, B32
Red Shorts & boat: R59, R37, R35, R24, R32
Duck: V01, Y13, Y11; beak: YR15, YR12, YR21
Raindrops & Water: C3, B23, B12, B01, B00
White sail: T3, T1, T0, Blender


I used patterned paper I had in my stash to make a mat for the card base. I matted the card front with white cardstock. I created the sentiment in MS-Word and printed it with my printer then trimmed it to fit the card. I also matted the sentiment with white cardstock and adhered it to the card. Since this card is made for a male, I did not add any bling. The card was finished.


This is a really cute stamp that could be used for birthdays, get well, friendship, hello, and more! So cute and easy to color! Hope you give it a try. Have a creative week! ~Betty~

Sunny Gnome Garden

 Hello Everyone! 

Cat here with todays inspirations. 

Here in Wales Spring has begun, we have had some beautiful sunny days which has made every one happy and smiley. 

This has influenced my card for today - with a bright sunny sky and the gnomes have venture out into their garden to plant their flowers - which is what I shall be doing later! 

I have used the Gnome digital Set which you can purchase here 


The images have been printed out on a laser printer and coloured with Promarkers before being fussy cut.

To create this DL card, I created the background on a scalloped Dl piece of card with Tim Holts Distress Inks (Mustard Seed, Fossilized amber for the sky and for the grass I used Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint) with some stencils. 

I then added the images to the background with Glue and Foam pads. 

I created the sentiment ' Welcome to the secret Garden' in word and printed out and die cut into a heart.  

Finally I added some white sequins to complete! 

I hope you like it!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day Card

 Hello Crafty Friends! It's Laurie here! St. Patrick’s Day is next week, and I thought I would use Ellie with Clovers by Paper Nest Dolls for my Design Team Inspiration Card.

Happy St. Patrick's Day Card



I do not have a lot of St. Patrick’s Day stuff in my stash, but I always create a card since my cousin is Irish and I like to send her a card.

I coloured Ellie with my Copic markers in traditional green and yellow tones. I also gave her red hair since my cousin has a couple of red heads in her family. Some crocheted lace was added since Ireland is known for their beautiful lace. Three four leaf clovers with gems create a nice border to set off the tag from the Doodlebug Paper. A couple of glitter sprinkles finish my card off.

Angel Ellie on Cloud - New Release!

Hi PND Fans! Betty here today with a new release stamp! 

We all have that one friend who is always there to help you and others. One that has the kindest heart. This is the true friend that is an angel in human form; the angel in disguise! This card is created with the adorable angel stamp from Paper Nest Dolls called Angel Ellie on Cloud and it comes in red rubber and in digital. I made this card as a friendship/thank you card; however, this stamp is also perfect for birthday, get well, sympathy, and note cards, scrapbooks, party favors, and other paper projects.


I used the digital stamp, so I first printed and colored the stamp with Copic markers (colors listed below). I then die cut the stamp using a stitched oval die from Gina Marie Designs. I then cut an oval lace die from Gina Marie Designs and layered the stitched oval die over it.


Copic Markers Used:
Hair: E57, E35, E33, E53, E50
Skin: RV42, E11, E21, E00, E000
Cheeks: R20
Clothes & Wings: B32, R85, R83, R01
Cloud: BV23, C3, C1, C00

I cut an A6 card base from white cardstock, a mat from pink cardstock, and patterned paper from Stamp Anniething for the card front. I created a sentiment using MS-Word, printed it, then trimmed it to size. I added the matching pink cardstock as a mat behind the sentiment. Everything is glued flat except for the sentiment, where I used foam squares. I added a few sparkle stars and dot with a white gel pen. The card is finished! 


This is a easy and fun card to make. I hope you give it a try! Thank you for visiting and have a crafty day! ~Betty~
