I have never tried to make a pocket card, but following a super easy to follow tutorial by my friend Jamie (YT: ScrappinStampers) I made these two using the Whimsy Stamps “BFF Lydia and Willy Worm” stamp illustrated by Lizzy of the Oddball Art Stamp Company, which I picked as part of my DT package from Jamie’s Not2ShabbyShop.

ASIDE: Jamie is in the process of moving her store from Zibbet to her own website. What does that mean for you? Well, she is having some amazing up to 30% off sales at her Zibbet shop HERE. Plus at both stores you can use my coupon code: CRAFTYPAWS for an extra 10% off! 

20150218_140410I wanted to use some 6″x 6″ papers and scraps up and just making these two cards I was able to use up a lot! I made one is a soft pale green and cream color and the other one in black and pinks.

I’m afraid I couldn’t tell you the papers I used because they were either gifted to me loose or from my scrap box.  However, these are the Copic colors I used.  For both images I used E50, 51, and 53 for the skin and R30 for blush.

For the blonde hair I used Y21, YR31 and YR24. For the lavender colors in her outfit that I matched to the polka dots on her paper pieced sweater, I used BV01, 02 and 04. I gave her brown eyes with E55 and 57.  It may seem silly but I was most excited to give her a red lip (which I’ve never used before) and used R35.

For the brown haired girl, I used E55, 57 and 59 and used the E55 and 57 also for her shoes. I decided to give her green eyes with G94 and 99. I gave her a soft pink lip with R 30 and 20.

The following is a video share of both these cards:
