On to the candy

Julie Nutting for Prima Paper Doll Stamp-Riley
Julie Nutting for Prima Wings stamp
Crate Paper 6x6 Paper Pad
(the small prints of the 6x6-inch pads are the best for the clothing.)
White chiffon flowers for embellishing
I will repost this picture every Tuesday just so you
don't forget what you could win!!

Several ladies asked about my brick wall background.
I used this Penny Black stamp

(for the local stampers, I purchased this stamp at Stamp Fanci)
It is a large background stamp but not big enough for 
my project which is 6.5" x 8.5".
I stamped an 8.5 x 11" piece of cardstock in
four sections 

I was surprised by how easy it was to match up the bricks.
Where there was a break, I just used a black Micron pen to fill in.
Here's a closer look...

I was pleased with the results and I'm sure that I'll get a lot of
use from this stamp.
Other supplies I used for this piece were:
Cricut Seasonal Cake Art cartridge for the grass
Basic Grey Serendipity 6x6 Paper Pad
Umbrella and flower dies from Quickutz.
If you have any other questions please ask...I love to hear from you!

I don't know what else to say about the Julie Nutting for Prima Paper Doll stamps
other than they are the most stamping fun I've had in a long time.
The dolls can be colored with pencils, markers or water colors or
my favorite method; paper piecing. Fun! Fun! Fun!
Here are other recent projects I have completed using
the paper doll stamps... to work on Summer!
Remember that comments need to be left on the
Tuesday posts to be Blog Candy eligible.
I'll post a peek on Monday, August 12
and the new post will go up on Tuesday the 13th!
Have a good week!

I love seeing all your projects. I agree...these stamps are so much fun. They remind me of my childhood when I would make my own clothes for my paper dolls.
I am enjoying the blog hop...thanks for sharing.

I'm squealing with happiness just looking over your blog, creations, and this joyful post! I'm remembering when I was a little girl and money was so tight, we made such wonderful memories with the paper dolls and making little clothes with a sketch pad and crayons :) How delightful now as 'bigger girls' we get to stamp, ink and color!! :) I'm a new follower! *Blessings!*

Thanks for breaking it down for the crafty people. I don't think I would have figured out the clothes were from a 6x6 pad, but it makes perfect sense.
