Week 4 in the Julie Nutting for Prima Paper Doll Stamp Blog Hop...Winter

For the past 4 weeks, five crafters and myself, have been participating in the 
Julie Nutting for Prima Paper Doll Stamp Blog Hop!
Every Tuesday in August, we have each posted a seasonal project
using a Prima Paper doll Stamp.
If you leave a comment on each of the Tuesday blog posts,
you will be eligible for some Blog Candy, which is described below.
If you are a follower or become a follower, you will get a second chance.
Finally, if you blog about the Hop or post on your
Facebook or Twitter, a third chance will be yours.
The winner from my blog will be chosen on Friday August 30th

I really can't believe it is the last week of August!
August in Pittsburgh has basically been the coolest month of the summer, 
of any August I can remember, actually. 
have enjoyed it immensely. 
It has been nice to have the air conditioning off and the windows open.. 
(I don't know what this means for Septemeber)

Anyway, the weeks in August have flow and so have the Four Seasons in the
Julie Nutting for Prima Paper Doll Stamp Blog Hop!

We have arrived at Winter!
I knew from the first week what I wanted to make for my Winter project.
An art board using only shades of white with some silver and some bling!

The board is 5 x 7 inches...

Materials used were: a doily, adhesive backed white felt,
Prima chiffon mini flowers, glitter cardstock, silver ribbon,
platinum ink, adhesive rhinestones by Recollections,
Sizzlet by Sizzix die cut snowflakes, dimensional tape, 
Copic markers and of course
I mentioned last time that Scamp was a wood-mount Hero Arts stamp that
I didn't think was available any longer. My friends Diane and Cheryl have alerted
me that Scamp is now available as part of a clear stamp set
 and the set can be found on eBay here for $4.99!
I also asked if you could guess another theme besides using Scamp in every project...
I chose to use all little girl stamps in my 4 Seasons projects.
I have all of the Prima Paper doll Stamps but limited
myself to the little girl stamps...they worked better with the pup! :D 

Well, we've come to the end of the year and I must say
that this is the most creative fun I've had for a while!
The other women who are participating in this Blog Hop
are all wildly gifted and I have enjoyed getting to know them
and seeing their work. I hope you have, too.

Remember that to be eligible to win the Blog Candy, 
you need to leave a comment on each Tuesdays' post.

This is the blog candy....and another surprise will be included
NOTE: This doll stamp and the wing were used in my final project...
the chiffon flowers, too!

To go to each post, just click on the season...


and now Winter

What a beautiful art board, Joyce! I love all the shades of white and especially the lace, roses, and of course, Scamp. Such a wintery looking scene, and I love looking at it, it cools me off from the 100+degrees it is here in Texas! Hugs to you!

All of your projects turned out lovely! I like how you used the flowers for the skirt in the winter one. It gives the card a warm feel even though it's all whites and silvers.
