Prima - Celebrate Jack and Jill Collection Stamps

I love these Prima Celebrate Jack and Jill Collection Stamps.  I was a little afraid that coloring a stamp of a person less than 3 inches tall might be beyond my skill set, but this little girl was so cute I had to buy her all the same.

I know I did simple shading on the girl, but I'm very happy with how she turned out.

If I was afraid of coloring the little girl, I was terrified of coloring the rabbit.  I mean how do you shade something that is white?  I tried adding shadows to the rabbit with a Copic E000 marker (pale fruit pink) and left everything else not colored at all.  I loved the result.  I no longer have to fear buying mostly white stamps.

I can't wait to make an Easter card with these stamps.  Yes I know it's a very long time until Easter, but that kind of thing has never stopped me from making a card.

Have a wonderful scrappy day!

Beautiful Prima Doll Stamp

Over the last couple of days I've shared many different Prima doll stamps with you.  I saved the best one for last.  I love how this young woman turned out.  She looks ready to go out to a party.

I used the usual colors BG000, BG01, BG05, and BG15 on her dress and headband.  For the shoes and dark blue part of the dress I used BG05.  For the rest of the dress I used the other blues.  On the skin I used E000, E00, and E11.  The hair I was colored with a brown Spectrum noir maker.  The outlining was done with a Pigma micron 03 pen.

This is the last prima doll stamp that I'm going to do for at least a few days.  If you want to see all my other prima doll creations just click on that link.

The prima dolls may be gone for now, but the stamping fun isn't over.  I have a few more fun stamps to show to you.

Until then, have a wonderful scrappy day!

Prima Doll Stamp of Little Girl

Click to Enlarge
I really like how this prima doll stamp turned out.  I'm a big fan of the way the blue and green parts of her outfit look together.

For the blues on her dress I used copic makers BG000,BG01, BG05, and BG15.  For the greens on her dress and shoes I used copic makers G05 and G09.  For her skin I used E000, E00, and E11.

I outlined many lines on this stamp with a Pigma Micron 03 .35mm pen.  Personally I like the way that darker hand drawn lines look.  Susy on the other hand thinks I ruin all my stamps when I always add my outlining.  So I realize that the outline step like all other artistic things is very much a matter of personal preference.

I hope you like the end result of this stamp as much as I do.  It's one of my favorite stamps that I've done recently.  If you have any questions I'll be happy to answer them.

 Have a wonderful scrappy day!

Intruducing our Latest Sponsor BlueMoonScrapbooking

Blue Moon ScrapbookingWhen I went looking for sponsors I found the photography site relatively quickly.  However, I wanted to look around at all the options very carefully before picking a scrapbook store to share on the blog.

After considering a few different companies I ended up going with BlueMoonScrapbooking

I really like that they have the free shipping at $50 and have always admired the look of their store.

I will be back with more fun post tomorrow.  I just wanted to use today to introduce BlueMoom although I would be shocked if 90% of the people who read this blog hadn't at least been to their site in the past.

Have a wonderful scrappy day!

Prima Doll Stamp

I really like how this prima doll stamp turned out.  I can't wait for the chance to actually use her on a project.

There are a few mistakes, but I feel like I get better with every stamp.  Besides I really enjoy making them and in the end that's all that matters.  Now I just have to find a way to use my stamped creations.

Supplies Used:

Paper used: Neenah Paper

For the skin I used Copic markers E000, E00, and E11.

For the dress I used Copic marker BG000, BG01, BG05, BG15.  It's important to note here that I only used BG05 on the ruffle and boots.  I find it mixes very badly with the other  3 blue makers.  BG05 is what messed up my dress in yesterdays post.

On the hair I used spectrum noir brown.

Last, but not least I used a Pigma Micron 03 pen to outline most of the lines on the stamp after coloring it.

Have a wonderful scrappy day!
