I was low key today... finished my CC3 Challenge #5 ... AND I decided to do some of my Julie's Girls . I've missed doing them and getting them posted so I decided to share some with you
for the 4th.
I could not make a final decision on the ribbon for my girls so my tags are minus the ribbon ( sorry).
I used the Peasant Dress Doll #5 from Julie's first collect and Taylor from her second collection.
I had so much fun . The papers and embellishments I used are from Pebbles Americana Collection.
For the first doll with the peasant dress ( Doll #5 ) I used a tag from Julie Nutting 's tag pad that had note paper background and I used my Tim Holt star stencil and stenciled stars with barn door and faded jeans distressing ink. For her dress I used Pebbles Justice from their American Collection. I stamped the dress twice once on the floral side and the second time on the gingham side of the paper. I layered her dress so that the gingham showed at the neckline, hemline and at the sleeves.
I stamped her shoes and her head band from the floral side. I used two of Pebbles Sticker Collections to add embellishments; banner across the top and flowers and sentiment at the bottom.; and I used Want 2 Scrap red adhesive pearls for her earrings.
I apologize for the lousy photo I did not realize until I started the post that you could not see the sticker I added because of the glare. The sticker has a sentiment that says Proud To Be American.
The second doll is Taylor ( she's one of the newer dolls ); for her background I used a tag with a blue and white flourish looking background. Taylor's outfit is done from the same paper
using the gingham for her pants, and her headband; she too is wearing red pearl earrings from Want 2 Scrap ( sound like a fashion show commentator ... lol ) ! For the embellishments on this tag I used the wagon sticker, a firecracker sticker and some red white and blue stars. I also used my flower punch to punch flowers from both the floral and gingham side of the paper and I used the red pearls as flower centers. Added a little bling to the fired crackers and used vintage photo distressing ink the distress the flower petals and Taylor's outfit.
My third doll is wearing a peasant dress from the gingham paper, gingham head band, gingham shoes and red pearl earrings. She's mounted on a tag with a script background which I stenciled with faded jeans and barn door distressing ink stars. I added a small white doily and a couple of stickers and a white ribbon at he neckline of her dress. I also added punched flowers.
I just love those flowers with those red pearl centers... so fun !
I am so enjoying my Julie Doll Stamps ! I hope to do more in the coming weeks. Just so many possibilities for these girls. I currently have 14 of Julie's Dolls... so I do want to use my investment :)
See you in a week or so. I'll be doing my July Tim Tag... so you'll have to come back and check it out... it's going to be awesome. I'll also be sharing some of my other projects from the other challenges. See you real soon ! Oh and I will add ribbon to these tags ... they'll be gingham and other red and blue combo's ( something cute) !
