Paper Nest Dolls Hugs and Kisses Emma ~ Copic Colored ~ Valentine’s Day Card

Hello everyone,

Today I’m sharing my last Valentine’s Day inspired card for this year with the help of an adorable digi image from Paper Nest Dolls called Hugs and Kisses Emma.Paper Nest Dolls Hugs and Kisses Emma digital stamp colored with Copic Markers and patterned paper background Valentine’s Day handmade card.

I always print the digital images onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80 lb. cardstock with a laser printer and cut the image using my ScanNCut2.

Using my Copic markers, I colored the image with the following color combination:

Skin: E000, E00, E11, E13 and R20
Hair: E29, E27, E25 and E53
Dress and socks: BG49, BG57 and BG53
Shoes: W9, W7 and W5
XO, Heart, Bows: R39, R29 and R27

Working on the largest card panel, I started by cutting a piece of teal paper using the largest die from Lawn Fawn’s Stitched rectangle die set and adhered it to an A2 top folding card base. Next, I cut a piece of red embossed paper from a Recollections Valentine’s Day paper pad set just slightly smaller than the previous card panel and adhered it on top. And finally I added a hearts patterned paper cut with MFT’s Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangle to a teal mat with some foam tape on slightly askew for my main focal image to sit on.

This card will end my Valentine’s Day series for 2018 and will be entered into the following challenges:   

Paper Nest Dolls February Challenge,
Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #159 Add a heart,
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Simons Says – Add a die cut,   
Cardz TV Anything Goes Challenge #34

Paper Nest Dolls Rose Princess ~ colored with Spectrum Noir Markers

Hey everyone,

A few months ago while at a stamp show, I discovered new to me stamps from a company called The Paper Nest dolls. They are super cute, cartoony type of characters created after the owners’ children. 
I was super excited to find that they have a category for Fairytales as I found two stamps that I had to immediately add to my collection.
Paper Nest Dolls Rose Princess handmade card colored using Spectrum Noir Markers.

To create this card, I started by stamping the image with Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink onto a piece of Spectrum Noir paper and colored the image using Spectrum Noir Markers.

Markers I used
Dress/Hair band: CT3, CT4 and GB3
Hair: TN3, TN5 and EB5
Skin: FS2, FS6 and FS3
Rose: DR3 and DR5
Stem: CG3 and CG4
Earrings and Broch: TB5 with glossy accents  

I cut the stamped image using Spellbinders Nestabilities Label 17 die and did a little ink blending using Distress ink in Antique Linen with a finger dauber to cover some of the white background.

To put the cards together, I wanted to challenge myself and step out of my card making comfort zone of a minimalist approach. I’ve been playing with paper layering and wanted to incorporate that here. 
I used a yellow-ish patterned paper from K & Company paper pad from the Jubilee collection that I cut down to 5.25” x 5.25” and an orange-ish strip cut down to 1.75” x 5.25” which I adhered to a 5.5” x 5.5” cream colored card base.  To embellish this card a bit, I used a couple of flowers, several gems and one very glittery butterfly all from Recollections.
I suppose I could have kept going but that minimalist personality started to come out again and I thought this was plenty embellished.
My daughter was so excited to watch me create this card, as a few months ago we saw the movie Beauty and the Beast and she claimed the card for her own.


It was an awesome movie that brought me back to my childhood when the animated movie was released long ago! 
I had so much fun creating this card that I wanted to enter it in the Paper Nest Dolls challenge Anything Goes over on their blog
That’s it for me today, as always thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
