Finally, Some Stamping!

I've done such little stamping in the last few months. My Christmas cards are only two thirds finished. That means the good news is that I have a good head start on next year's cards. Lol!
I did get a few projects finished that I started at my monthly stamping day with my good friends. I borrowed this darling little girl stamp from one of those friends and paper pieced her. It reminds me of something I loved doing when I was little....playing with paper dolls. The gray embossed coat was simple. I stamped the girl onto the gray cardstock, cut out just the coat, ran it through the Cuttlebug for texture, and glued it on.

Recipe: paper- chocolate chip (SU), brown and gray Bazzil, white, natural, designer papers (Old World Stack from DCWV, Classic K pad from K and Company, Della Fantasia cards from The Paper Studio); stamps- girl (source unknown), friend sentiment (Stampabilities), simple things sentiment (Hero Arts); ink- black archival, chocolate chip (SU), red and cameo coral markers (SU); accessories- Cuttlebug embossing folder, buttons.
