Sweet Stampin' - Girly But NO Pink

Hello and good morning everyone ---

Here in the UK we've been battling some awful stormy weather - high winds etc, so I hope you're all safe and still have a roof on house.

Well I don't know about you, but everything is now back to normal - Christmas has come and gone. So now I'm dreaming of spring days and fresh flowers.

Anyhoo it's Sweet Stampin' time!!  Our theme this week is' Girly But NO Pink'. So what better time to use one of my Prima stamps - this gorgeous girl is a stamp and die combo set....even her little dog. Everything was stamped, die cut and layered up, with spring in mind I tried to use uplifting colours. I hope you like it. x

Here's What I did
I used an A5 card base and matted it with yellow starry patterned paper. I added die cut background hills from patterned papers and vellum. I stamped and die cut the Prima girl and her dog. In the set her dress, shoes and hair have their own stamps and dies, so I stamped her dress and shoes onto more patterned  papers and some plain cardstock then die cut them out. Her hair was stamped and die cut from colouring card stock which I coloured using my Copic pens. I dressed my doll and added her and little dog onto my card base.  To finish off I added ribbon to her dress, die cut clouds, sequins and a sentiment.

Here's everything I used:
Stamp: Prima Doll Stamp & Die Set #910358
Paper/Cardstock (CS):  LOTV (Lilli Of the Valley) ' Petal Fresh' and 'Bonnets & Bowties', Neenah CS, Papermania Vellum and Patterned Paper (old stock) 
Copics: Skin - E000, E00, E11, E13 / Hair - YR0000, YR000, YR00, E13, E18, E99
Dies: Spellbinder 'Curved Border One', Joy! 'Clouds', Sizzix Framelits & Stamps 'Hello'
Other: Ribbon, Gems, Sequins, Silver Thread

Love the colour combo Janine, that buttery yellow and blue is fab and I do love the shaped die you've used at the bottom. I'm wondering if it's the same one hubby bought me for Christmas. I've yet to have a play. Love the paper pieced dress too and the lil clouds. Gorgeous hun. Hugs, Wends xxxx
