I Love It, I do! I am busy playing with my New Julie Nutting Doll Stamps from Prima, and I really love this recent release.  This card uses "Phoebe", and I have her set in a botanical setting with flowers from the Botanical Cartridge from Cricut.

I love stamping the doll stamps on the Tag Pad, also from Prima and Julie Nutting. This gives them an antique beige coloring with a lightly printed word background. Of course, I color the skin with my earthtone Copic Markers, in various shades of skintones, and either color in the clothing or paper piece it, to give the design more interest. On this card I stamped the skirt on a scrap of printed paper, and the blouse on white cardstock so I could color it in to match the green colors in my sentiment block and the twine.

I cut the daisies from the Botanicals cartridge with my Cricut machine, from ivory cardstock and glued it to the background paper from the Engraver 6 X 6 paper pad by Prima. I glued all of the elements to the cardbase with my Tombow Multi Mono liquid glue, and then used foam squares to adhere the skirt and blouse to Phoebe. To finish off the card, I added teensy half-pearls to the buttons on her blouse, and gold paint marker to the centers of the daisies, then tied a loopy bow from Limeade lawn clippings twine from Lawn Fawn and glued it to the stems of the daisies.

This card could be used for many occassions. I hope you have enjoyed this card.

  3. Phoebe is adorable with the way you dressed her in layers so she pops out. So many nice touches to the card like her top matching the green "Love It: and then tying the flowers with the white and green twine. The loopy bow is fun and covers any space between the flowers and Phoebe. Phoebe could have received the flowers or be giving the flowers! As you say, this card would work for many occasions.
    I just bought my first doll, the #1 Julie Nutting, the girl with the short dress ad tie at the waist. I can't wait to use it!
