I must admit that I’m rather late on the bandwagon when it comes to the Prima Doll Stamps. However, now that I’ve discovered them I am thrilled to have 2 that I can play with and make fun projects to share.
Our youngest daughter celebrated her birthday last weekend and I wanted to use one of my Prima Doll Stamps to make her card (my first project using my new Prima Doll Stamps). Given the fact that they are approximately 8″ tall I thought cutting a card in the shape of a tag would work fine, and indeed it did. Even though you only see the front, it does open up in the usual card fashion to reveal a birthday sentiment along with a special note that my hubby wrote to her. I’m the card maker and he has a beautiful way with words so he always writes the sentiments. This dual effort makes each card we give to family and friends something from the heart from both of us. I love that.
I used quite a few elements to make this card. The base card was cut using Vanilla card stock from Stampin’ Up! and layered with a pretty blue paper also from them. The denim paper is very old and is from Paper Pizazz, but I thought it went perfectly as the background for the doll. The paper pieced dress, headband and jacket is also from some very old papers I had in my stash. The doll was stamped on a piece of the Prima skin tones paper from their paper pack. I really like those papers.
I am just learning how to color with Copic markers and used a few to color her skin and hair. A bit of cotton crochet lace that I cut in half was adhered at the hemline. The beautiful lace towards the top of the card is from a roll I purchased at WalMart awhile back and the white tiny ball trim is from Hobby Lobby. I love the pretty yellow flowers and they are all from Michaels, Recollections I believe, and the feather is either from JoAnns or Michaels. Distress Tea Dye was used to ink the edges and a pearl swirl along with little white flowers were included to help the design and add interest. It’s hard to see on this picture, but I used my glitter pen to accent the bows on her shoes. A small piece of lace was used at the top along with a pearl centered button which I just purchased from the Spare Parts line at Hobby Lobby. Of course, it wouldn’t be one of my projects without the addition of Stickles or glitter, so I tipped the roses with Diamond Stickles and called it a day.
I am happy with my first Prima Doll project, and Jen absolutely loved her card which makes me happy.
Another post will follow today showing some projects I made for Your Paper Pantry, but I didn’t want to add too many projects within one post.
Thanks for visiting and until next time, God Bless.
