True Friends are Always Together in Spirit

Hi PND Fans! It's Betty back with another card. Inspired by the movie Mulan, Paper Nest Dolls has created this cute, fun, and versatile stamp called Warrior Princess. I found this sentiment just right for this card that I will be sending to a friend. This stamp comes in red rubber and in digital formats. I used the digital format for my card so that I could make it the size I want. I knew I wanted to make an A6 size card. 

To start, I printed the Warrior Princess stamp and colored it with Copic Markers.

Copic Markers Used
Warrior Princess:
Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000
Cheeks: R20, R30
Hair: T9, T7, T5, T3
Red: R24, R22, R21, R20
Green: G45, G24, G21, G40
Blue: BG07, BG05, BG02, G00

Red: R24, R22, R21, R20
Yellow: YR15, Y19, Y13
Brown (nose): E37, E35, E31
Blue: BG05

Fur: E57, E55, E53, E51
Nose: T7, T3, T1
Inside ears: R24, R22
Collar: R21, R20

V15, V12, BV13, BV11

I used black cardstock and patterned washi paper to mat the card front. I adhered all the layers together with double-sided tape. Do not use liquid glue on washi paper or the paper will wrinkle. 

This is a easy one layer card to make so I hope you give it a try! Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a creative week.

Fall Emma at the Pumpkin Patch

Hi Crafty Friends,
I have the cutest little girl ready to go to the Pumpkin Patch from Paper Nest Dolls. Her name is Fall Emma. I created a colorful leaf background to match her outfit using Taylored Expressions Falling Leaves Stamp & Stencil combo. I was inspired by my niece and nephew's trip to the Pumpkin Patch and pumpkin carving, pictures below.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Did you go or are you going to the Pumpkin Patch?
A: Me? No, but I'll get some pumpkins from the grocery store for my porch.

Perfectly Wicked Interactive Card

Perfectly Wicked Interactive Card

Hello Crafty Friends! It’s Laurie here! Today I am sharing Perfectly Wicked Interactive Card as my Design Team Inspiration Card for Paper Nest Dolls using the Evil Fairy.

I was honoured to have been asked to present at the Paper Nest Dolls’ Party with the Villains Virtual Weekend Retreat that was this past weekend. I had so much fun creating my cards for the event that I made an extra one that I thought I would share with you today. The other cards that I presented at the Retreat will be posted at the end of this post.

To get in the mood and for inspiration, I just had to watch the movies both the live action and the cartoon! Any excuse to watch Disney is a good excuse in my books! Lol!

For this card, I coloured the Evil Fairy with my Copic Markers to matched the Disney cartoon. I have been wanting to use the Give a Whirl Dies from Stampin’ Up! and thought it would be perfect for my card! It is so fun to spin that little dial and see all the fun sentiments! These sentiments… “Perfectly Wicked!” and “Bad Girls Have More Fun!” …were created in Word. I added one of the digital papers behind them to blend in with the paper that I used on my card base. Since the Evil Fairy turns into a dragon at the end of the movie, I couldn’t resist adding a bright green dragon with a dusting of Black Soot on its edges. A castle and a few stars that were brushed with the Aged Brass were the only other elements that I added to my card.


Copic Markers:

Skin: E04/E11/E21/E00/E000/R20
Blacks: T10/T8/T7/T6/T5 (could use Cs instead)
Purples: V09/V06/V04
Dress: RV17/RV14/RV13
Staff: YG09/YG06/YG03/TG00
Crows: C9/C7/C6/C5/YR04/YR02
