Uk Scrappers Blog Hop

 Hi and Welcome to the second UK scrappers BLOG HOP 
There are loads of prizes up for grabs along the way including  UKS voucher for sponsor of your choice £25, so make sure you visit each blog and leave a comment.
***
Firstly , you should have arrived via ScrapDolly
I have also popped a link to the Uk scappers post so you can start at the beginning if need be. ( just click on the name)
There are quite a few photos sorry.
For my project I have made a set of four "Thank You" cards , featuring the Prima Doll stamps and also a gift box to present them in.
First I stamped onto smooth card stock ( I use copic pens to colour them but they could easily be water coloured and stamped onto water colour card).

 I have only coloured in the hair and the skin as I have also stamped onto patterned paper for the clothes. You will notice that on two I have also only coloured half way down the legs as the bottom will be cut off.

 I have used a wet glue that dries clear rather than DST as I get a little bit of movement if I get the placement wrong. 

 As I cut the "Doll" out, it doesn't matter too much about staying in the lines when colouring .

 The finished cards- I used a colour scheme for each doll and the smaller print paper for the dresses.

 For all the cards I used a diecut "Thanks" from Memory Box dies.
I have cut, coloured with copic pen to match and then embossed the diecut with clear embossing powder.

 I have added a little bling , ribbon, lace to each card - just scraps really .

 Glitter glue on the dress of this one and liquid pearl "dots" to the background stamp.

 As you can see, I have inked the edges of everything. I have also used distress inks and water to paint a shadow around each doll and shade on the dresses.

 
 The dolls were stuck to the cards with 3D pads.

The box was made to fit my cards that measured just under 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches
The template above is NOT to measure - just to give you a rough idea of where to cut and the score lines - if you are making more than four cards , you would have to have more than 1/2 inch score lines to accommodate them. Anyway you get the idea

I inked all the edges and the cut some patterned paper to decorate

  I used a strong glue to secure the sides.


I used ribbon to close the box but you could use Velcro dots or whatever is your favourite.
Right ..if you are still here ... you need to go to the next blog which belongs to..

Don't forget to comment to have the chance to win - Good Luck!!
