Love Struck Emma

Hello my friends, Happy Friday!!! The weekend is almost here and its time to get crafty.   Racquel here, and today I am sharing a card using the new Love Struck Emma . I love creating projects for Valentines and  Love Struck Emma  was released in the shop at the perfect time.  

I have a lot of valentines paper that I accumulated over the years and decided to pull some of it out to create this card.  I colored love struck emma using copics with the colors listed below.  I die cut two stitched hearts and added them to the card.  I found a burlap heart in my stash and thought it would be perfect for this card.  I added some flowers from wild orchid crafts and the sentiment is from some die cuts I had in my stash.     


Copic Colors used:
Skin: E13, 11, 00, 000
Hair: E18, 15, YR23, Y11
Red: R46, 35, 24
White: C3, 1, 0
Black Spica Pen
White Gel Pen

Hope you like this card and it provides some crafty inspiration for you.  Check out the Papernest Dolls store and pick up Love Struck Emma.  Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous crafty weekend.

Traveling Ellie

Hello there! I have a card to share with you today using the sweet Traveling Ellie image. 

This image makes me smile. She looks so happy and ready for an adventure. I imagined her walking on a trail through the woods with her little pack. I happened to have some fake branches and real pine cones on hand, which made perfect embellishments for this card. 

I colored Traveling Ellie with Copic markers, 

Thank you for stopping by for a visit. We will see you again soon! 
Have a craftastic day!

Love is in the Air

Happy Sunday crafty friends!!!  Racquel here to share a card using one of the images from the new  release Love Letter Avery. There are two versions of  this cutie in the store.  Love Letter Avery comes with the polka dots or stripes on her dress.  I love the polka dots on her dress.  I am gearing up for Valentines and this cutie is a perfect image to create some Valentines projects. I printed the image out on copic x-press it blend card stock and colored her using my copics.  Since she is holding a love letter, I decided to add a mailbox to the card.  Ms. Avery is sending her letter to her valentinesđź’–.   I love the way this card turned out and the recipient will love it too.  

Copic Colors Used:
Skin: E18, 15, 13, 11
