Life has come full circle, with Love Letter Emma by Paper Nest Dolls

Truly, my life has come full circle. One of the first digital images that I colored was a Paper Nest Doll, and now I am on the design team. You can't imagine how thrilled I am.

For my first design team project, I selected Love Letter Emma. I think she is so adorable, carrying a big live letter.

I created a 6x6 card for Emma. I used Echo Park paper. The paper I used is discontinued, but the pack I linked is very similar.

I did use oval dies from my stash to cut out Emma and to cut a red mat to place behind her. I think the red just makes her pop!

I used the following Copics:

Face - E11, E000, E0000, and for the blush R20 and R20
Hair - Y38, Y35, YR14, and a touch of YR24
Dress - RV14, RV13, RV10, RV02
Shoes - RV14, RV13, RV10, and a touch of N4
Leggings - RV13, RV10, and E41
Envelope - E41
Hearts- R46 and R27
Bow RV04 and RV15 with a smidgen of R27

I used my very favorite paper from Sweet Sentiment to color this stamp on. If you haven't tried this paper, you have to give it a go. You will love it.

Sweet Little Darling Besties Doll 221224 - Such a cute doll for Valentines Day!

I selected a Sweet Little Darling Besties stamp for a Valentine card to give to a special teacher this year. This is a digi stamp, so you can download the stamp and create a card without having to wait. This is why I love digi stamps. I just think this little doll is extra cute. I love the reds and the pinks together. I colored this during a live on my Face Book page, Creative Paper Crafting with Jacquie and posted a video on my You Tube channel.

For this image I used the following Copic markers:

Face - E000, E01, E11 and blush E20 and E30. I love my Bestie dolls to have rosy cheeks.
Hair - E71, E71, and E77. I used a Gelly Roll pen for the red hearts in the hair.
Skirt - R 27, R24, and R14. I used R46 for the heart on her skirt.
Waistcoat - R30 and R20.  For the heart I used R46 and R29
Boots - W4, W2, and W0

I used True Red Sparkle pen for the head band after I shaded it with R30 and R20, and used R46 on the small hearts. After the sparkle pen dried, I used the Gelly Roll red pen to color in the hearts again.

This is a 6x6 card. I used Echo Park paper, which was a great compliment to the stamp. I colored my image on Sweet Sentiment paper, which is just wonderful for coloring with Copics or any alcohol markers.

"Lovebug Gnome" such a fun and adorable card for Valentimes!

For this Valentine card I selected Lovebug Gnome from KLM Digital Designs. I just love the gnome driving down the road, with the wind blowing his hat and balloons, while driving a bug is adorable. What could be more fun than driving down the road in a bug?

I wanted the card to have a sities vibe, so I took my inspiration from some paper from W R Memory Keepers Anthologie collection that I had in my stash. The design and colors on the paper are a perfect compliment to the stamp.

I thought that the bug was such a cute card that I decided to keep the focus on the gnome. I created a cloud background with distress inks. I have posted a copy of my live video (process) on my YouTube channel. You might be surprised that I have simply created a template to make the clouds from an old scrap of paper, that I use over and over again. I used marker paper from Sweet Sentiment. This is the best paper to use for copics. My absolute favorite!

For this image I used the following copics:

Balloons- for the red: R22 and R11 and for the pink: RV23, RV21, and RV 02
Hat - RV29, R27, and R24
Skin - E11 and E01
Nose - R30 and R20
Bumper and hub caps - C2 and C0
Wheels - W4, W2, and W0
Windows - W00
Beard - W0

I used distress inks for the clouds. I used fun foam to pop up my layer with the card. Since, I used a png file, I was able to put the sentiment. 'You Drive Me Wild" on the same layer as the gnome. PNG files print with a clear background, which allows you to merge images. I just love digi stamps. I printed the car at 4 inches.

Creating cards brings me so much joy - I hope that it brings you joy too.

I do lives weekly on my Face Book page at Creative Paper Crafting with Jacquie. I post tutorials and replays of my lives on my YouTube channel. I would love for you to like my page and subscribe to my channel.

I just love a romantic looking Valentine card, and this one is just perfect. Sherri Baldy creates beautiful stamps for her MyBesties line. The dolls are all so whimsical.

I created a 6x6 card and layered with papers from my crafting stash. I die cut a fan and a dollie to use, as well as assembled these cute flowers. I wanted to accentuate the image with a card full of layers and dimensions.

I colored her with my Copic markers:
Hair E71, E74, and E79
Face E000, E01, and E11
Pants and Hair Bow BV08, V09, V06, V05,V01, and BV000
Blouse RV23, RV21, and Rv02
