Hippy Chick ♥

Today it is me, Jill again sharing a card with you here
The image is beautiful and quite new and she is called Hipie Chick. You find her here
Again I have made a card in a bit of a shabby style, with lovely Pion papers and some old stash…
Hope you like it ♥
Cheesecloth and the painted carrogated paper with some of my old booksheets gives my card a shabby, vintage look that I think fit little Miss Hippie Chick perfect.

Coloured with Copics like always
For more details, feel free to visit my blog here
Hugs, Jill

Are you feeling Groovy???

          Hey it’s Nikki coming at cha with a super cool, groovy card. I was at Michael’s recently and found these really cool wooden pieces and my mind started racing as to how I could use them with my cards…. well today’s post is going to show you exactly what I was thinking about….. the idea popped into my head almost immediately and all I did was pray that no one else on the design team had picked this image yet……
          I was so lucky because no one had so I signed up and got busy…… I chose Hippie Chick, she is available here! I wanted to do something bright, cheery and super colourful. This is what I came up with….

          Of course I used my favourite medium, Copic markers to ink this adorable little stamp with. This image was printed on Make it Crafty Alcohol blending card. Her skin was inked with E000, E00, E11 and R20. Her hair was done with E50, E51, E53 and E55. Her pants were done with BG02, BG05 and BG07. Her belt was YG03 and YG25. Her shirt was done with RV21, RV23, RV25, Y15 and Y18. Grass was inked with G21 and G24. The flowers were done with YR04, YR07 and G24.

          Here is the wood piece I was talking about. I covered it with patterned paper from Glits called “Unchanted Waters”, I cut it out with an exacto knife, filed and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain ink. Isn’t it adorable? It was perfect for this card…. =)

          How groovy is this? Totally loved making this card. It was so much fun. The card is 5.5X5.5″ square card made out of Gina K Kraft card stock. I used MME’s “Happy Girl” patterned paper. There are some wooden heart shapes from Simon Says Stamp. The sentiments are from MFT’s “Farout” and Hero Arts “PSSST” stamp sets. I added some cheese cloth and did some faux stitching with my Signo Uniball gel pen in white. I really hope you enjoy it…. I loved making it =).

Such a Free Spirit

Happy Saturday! Today we would like to give a big welcome to our guest designer, Katie Perry!

Hi all! My name is Katie Perry – and, yes, that is my real name, lol! I’m in my early thirties and currently rockin’ the single life in Idaho. During the day I’m a Quality & Educations Specialist at a large local hospital but when I come home I get to dive into what I really love- paper crafts! I mostly make cards but I’m always willing to try something new- as long as it can have coloring somewhere on it 🙂 I bought my first Copics about 2 years ago and can’t image crafting without them – I even took the plunge and started a Youtube channel recently. I love this fabulous blogging community that has connected me with so many talented people and allowed me to make some wonderful friends!
She has made a wonderful card using our new, Hippie Chick stamp!
Hi all!  I’m excited to be sharing my guest design post for The Paper Nest Dolls with you today.  I had the chance to work with Hippie Chick– is she not just the cutest thing ever?  She was a blast to color with my Copics and I loved getting to use some bright and funky colors with her!  I paired her up with some of my favorite things like some bling and flowers and even got to use some peace sign laser cut paper that I’ve been hoarding holding on to for awhile now 🙂

I hope that you love her as much as I do- and thank you to The Paper Nest Dolls for letting me pop in and share!
