You're a Doll set is a gigantic set with several versions of the wonderful Matryoshka - Russian Nesting Dolls - mix and match tops, bottoms and center designs - large, medium and baby size along with several face options. It has flowers and leaves and one sentiment.
I couldn't resist making a little trio of the dolls. I stamped them side by side on a panel - leaving just a bit of space between them - then cut them out leaving a connection in the middle. I scored along those sections and folded them (one forward and one backward) so they would stand up. The large dolls are about 2 3/4" high.
Here's a close up of the smaller 2 where you can see the connections a little better. I did them up in bright inks and Copics like many of the 'real' Russian Nesting dolls are.
Next I stamped on a 6 1/2" x 4 1/2" linen bag - stamping the flowers directly on the bag. I stamped the doll on Sticky Back Canvas, cut it out and adhered it to the bag with fabric adhesive. I added an epoxy brad to the center.Folk Art Medallion. I die cut them with Nested Lacey Banners Nestabilities and attached them to the bag with a small flower brad.
Next I made a card using the doll face and one of the sentiments from the mini set - You're a Doll Additions. This set includes 3 sentiments, a heart and the pretty 1 1/2" size doll face.
I wanted to quickly show you how I stamped the floral wreath to frame the face. First I stamped and punched out the face with a 1 1/2" circle punch. I traced the circle on the panel where I wanted my wreath to be. I stamped the sentiment first so I could judge where I'd have enough room.
Then I stamped the flower from "You're a Doll" set in different colors - stamping the center of the flower slightly to the outside of the circle as I stamped around it."You're A Doll', adhered the face over the wreath with foam dots and added Tiny Twinkles to the centers and around the sentiment.
I'm excited to see what the Design Team members below have created with these lovely sets aren't you? Let's go check them out!
