Prima - Julie Nutting Doll Hop (Week 4)

WOW!  Have you seen the Prima Julie Nutting Mixed Media Doll stamps?  They are ADORABLE! 

A few of us are having so much fun with them that we’ve decided to put together a 4 Part HOP and the rules are very simple.  Each Tuesday throughout the month of August we will be sharing creations made with a variety of these fabulous stamps to inspire you.   

All you will need to do is HOP to each of our blogs each Tuesday in August and leave us a comment.  

 Be sure to include your email address because on August 30th we will EACH BE GIVING AWAY A PRIZE.  We will be sharing what our individual prize packages are on our blogs.  REMEMBER … you will need to comment EACH TUESDAY to qualify for the prize!  AND … if you share our hop info on your blog, your name will go in twice towards the prize.  WAIT THERE’S MORE!  If you become a follower/subscriber you get a THIRD CHANCE!! 

So what do you say?   
Are you ready for WEEK 4 (final week) of our hop??
It's so sad to see it come to an end ... we've had such fun!!!

REMEMBER:  If you have just learned of our hop and want to be involved, you still have time to 'backtrack' to Week's 1-2-3 and leave your comments.
Here are the links one last time . . .

WEEK 4 - Winter    
For this FINAL TUESDAY of the hop, we are creating with the WINTER season in mind!
This little lady has on her Christmas green & red and is ready for the holiday parties!

The background papers used on my Prima Doll Tag are from the Crafty Secrets digital Vintage & Retro Christmas CDs.  My snowman die is Marianne LR0246.

I actually printed the musical paper from the Crafty Secrets CD then stamped and colored my pretty ruffle dressed Prima Doll.

Touches of sparkle using Stickles red, diamond and waterfall colors adorn the snowman, icicles and her headband.  The sparkly ribbon came from Flower Factory.

My second project started out beautifully with all the fun colors and techniques I used on the canvas but unfortunately time ran out for me and I didn't get as much designing done on it as I had hoped.  However, I will share with you the stage it is in at the moment.


I have used everything but the kitchen sink on this canvas!  LOL!
Ink pads, various Glimmer Mists, paints ... I love how it reminds me of looking into the Christmas tree and squinting your eyes so all the lights run together.

I've had such a good time on this hop and hope you have too.
Thanks so much for joining in our fun and GOOD LUCK!  
Be sure to hop over to EACH of the girls blogs and leave some love!!
  REMEMBER:  By leaving a comment at EACH blog EACH week in August, YOU will qualify for the prizes being offered!
AND, it would be VERY HELPFUL if you  
  • add your email address
  • let us know you've become a follower
  • let us know you've shared this hop on your blog.
Those last two items will get your name put in the hat additional times so we don't want to miss anyone!

I love the pretty glow you achieved on the canvas. Most clever to use 2 dolls and the icicles are a perfect embellie. I have followed, linked and shared. I hate to see this hop come to an end.
