Julie Nutting Chiara Doll Tag

Hi there:)
Linda here today having heaps of fun playing with a Julie Nutting Doll Stamp.
These sweet dolls are so darn cute and I had a blast creating a Xmas Tag first up.

Here are a few step by step pics for you...

Step 1 - Have some mixed media fun on the tag base using a mask, texture paste and mists.

Below is a close up of the texture once the tag is dry -

Step 2 - use your favourite stamps to add further details to the background

Step 3 - add strips of dry wall tape for added texture

Step 4 - using an embossing dauber and powder add gorgeous details around the tag edge

Step 5 - stamp doll on a blank tag and watercolour skin sections with distress ink and aqua brush
Stamp doll onto chosen patterned papers for paper piecing of hair and clothes

Step 6 - Fussy cutting

The finished product ...

Add finishing details with stamps, sequins and twine.

Happy Crafting:)

Congrats on your Bundle of Joy with Angela

Hello there!! Angela here!!
 I haven't really made too many bubba cards.   I seem  have a run on them at the moment.
I wanted to make something a little different and non gender specific so I could have it on hand without having to specifically make a card once bubba was born.
I also wanted to try a different take on the stencil/paste fad at the moment.  Really happy with the results too!  

* Trim SBB white cardstock 29cm x 10 cm and fold in half portrait.

* Trim another SBB white 14.5 cm x 10 and then place Studio 490 Polka Dot stencil over the top.

* Spread Jo Sonja textured paste liberally over the stencil and cover completely.

* Gently lift the stencil

* Sprinkle Diamond Dust over the paste, whilst it is still wet.

* Dust off excess and set aside to dry

* Wash Stencil immediately (believe me, this step is IMPORTANT!!)

* Emboss with Zing Silver Flourishes sentiment on vellum

*Wrap around card, when dry.

*Adhere to base card.
