Free For All and Paper Smooches GD Search

Guess what I had today? I had my first GALA apple of the season today. Oh it was crisp and juicy just the way I like it. Yummy. Soon Jamba Juice will have their pumpkin smoothies. Oh they are delightful. Maybe you are going "YUCK" but I love 'em. Fall is my favorite season.

So I am back today with another entry for PAPER SMOOCHES OCTOBER GUEST DESIGNER SEARCH. I bought this set FOLKal POINTS for this matryoshka doll. I love Matryoshka dolls...I have over 30 of them thanks to my family and friends. Finally I inked her up and used a designer sketch from the PAPER SMOOCHES BLOG as my inspiration.

The hearts I used for the background are in the FOLKal POINTS set too. I just put both sizes on my acrylic block and altered the position as I stamped. For the sentiment background I used ALPHADOT from PAPER SMOOCHES as well. I just laid out the letters touching and pressed my acrylic block to them to pick them up. I went for a carefree look.

When I saw today's FREE FOR ALL CHALLENGE....PAPER PIECING I decided to play and use my doll stamp. After I paper pieced her I ran her through my Cuttlebug using the Houndstooth EB folder then ran her face only through and attached with dimensional tape. She makes me smile...that is why I chose my sentiment.

RECIPE:
STAMPS:FOLKal Points, Alphadot (Paper Smooches)
PAPER:Cottonball White, Night Eclipse (Clear Dollar Stamps), Playground, Summer Days and Country Drive Collections (Echo Park)
INK:Memento Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Distress Ink Walnut Stain, Copics R20, Y17, R27, E31
ACCESSORIES:Bee Pollen Crystal Stickers (from Clear Dollar Stamps), Cuttlebug, CB Houndstooth EB folder, Scotch Dimensional Tape
TECHNIQUES:Dry Embossing, Sponging, Paper Piecing

THANK YOU FOR VISITING TODAY. ENJOY YOUR DAY!
