Here is the sketch inspired by Julie Nutting paper doll playtime at Prima's Artventure at CHA. Each of us design team members were given a different stamp to play with.

Here's my take on the sketch using a copy free image that I found online somewhere.

I used the Crazy for you bundle by We R Memory Keepers. I LOVE the stamps that came in this bundle and had to try them out right away! The roses were stamped and layered using the cardstock from the bundle.  I used Ranger's black embossing powder to stamp the round doilies and colored the hearts using a pink Prisma marker. The pink doilies were stamped with Distress ink (Picked Raspberry).

The doll stamp that I got was Lorena by Prima Marketing. I stamped her onto clear vellum and chalked her with Pebbles Inc. pearlescent chalks. Then I stamped her again onto clear vellum with little white hearts on them to make her dress. I used more chalks on the dress and then added the little pink hearts, which were stamped, and also came in my bundle. Once I finished her dress I cut it out and glued it on top of the first stamped layer. I finished her off with a small bow out of some ribbon for her hair.

Thanks for looking and make sure to visit the FotoBella Blog to see some more inspiration from the rest of the team. Sarinda also has an awesome video tutorial on using Copic Markers, which she used for her doll stamp.


  1. Pretty, pretty, pretty! Lots of layers and embellishments. So vintage. Nice work.

  2. Oh my, from the sketch to your layout is so different but so absolutely following the sketch. It's gorgeous. I love those Prima dolls
