You may have read my recent post about Send a Smile 4 Kids (visit them Here ). They are a wonderful organization that solicits handmade cards, which they send to, and are used by, hospitalized children and their caretakers. They have frequent card design challenges, with vendor supplied prizes, and I decided to join the fun since I’ve never entered a design challenge before!
Prima’s Julie Nutting doll stamps are adorable and I have two of the original designs. The newer released dolls have names, but this one is just known as 91043 – perhaps a doll Social Security number? (haha) The images are 6″ tall so the tag card is 8″ x 4″ and required a custom envelope. Recent doll stamps are available in smaller sizes and even have clothing and accessories that can be stamped separately; some matching die cuts are available.
I stamped the doll once and colored with Spectrum Noir markers. I stamped again on patterned paper and green cardstock, cut out the dress and attached with an adhesive runner and pop dots at the bottom between the dress layers. Other elements were punched using a variety of papers. Spellbinders nesting dies created the base for the stamped sentiment, which is from Reverse Confetti. The headband was dotted with Liquid Pearls.
Here is another version, slightly easier because I used paper that already had a border so I did not need to cut quite so many embellishments. I cut flowers out from that paper and added on top of the flowers that were printed.
Do you have any Julie Nutting doll stamps? Let me know in the comments your favorite ways to use them!
Smiling at you,
