My new favorite thing! .... THIS week :-). Would you believe that I just recently discovered Prima dolls by Julie Nutting ?! Truth. But, I'm actually glad I waited until the dies for some came out because I don't really have the patience to do much fussy cutting.
So, last week I bought all three die sets currently available and this weekend I played paper dolls! WHAT FUN!Stamps and Dies Used: Here are the stamps that go with each set:
And, thankfully, there is a die for each piece.
I love having all three sets because you can mix and match some of the pieces, not all, but some....like the hair and some of the clothes.
I got tired of switching the stamps around on my acrylic blocks so I found two long blocks + one smaller block and put all the stamps on them so that now all I need to do is ink up all the stamps I want to use at once.
I have decided that I want to make lots of dolls for a project idea I have for later on in the year so I started mass producing elements:
They are very much like Copics except for the number of available colors and the price of course. Thankfully I never got on the Copic bandwagon because I couldn't justify the expense in my own mind... paying between $1-$2 per marker makes more sense to me. Papers Used: I used plain white cardstock (random no name)and two different paper pads. I'm sorry but I can't find the cover to the flowers on but the paper for dolls 1 and 5 came from:
OH! and the white/black polka dot stocking were made with washi tape... I accidentally drew on her let so I need to cover the mistake up so I just covered some cardstock with the tape then cut the legs out again with the die....easy fix, happy solution.
