Uni & Dolls Blog Hop -Julie Nutting Dolls





Welcome to the Grand Uni & Dolls bloghop party! 

If you have come from  Robbie's blog then you are in the right place. If not then begin from the beginning at www.flyingunicornblog.com, because you do not want to miss a thing!


The Mayor of the Unicorns ( Alda Stevens)  has declared this day to be "Julie Nutting Day" and she has given Julie the key to the Unicorns heart...which just happens to be adorable Doll Stamps! 

Let's start this hoedown!
I have created two tags because I could not decide which tag I liked better - and I had a great time creating them.  I 've got city sweet and country cute

Cowgirl Tag
I have an extra bonus! You can scroll to the end of this post and find some detailed step by step instructions.  I placed it at the end for the sake of those that are excited about the hop and want to get right to the fun.  No sense boring some of you. I say giddyup!



This tag was created using the wonderful new collection by FabSraps - Gentleman's Club.  I really loved the image of the horse on the Thoroughbred paper piece.  It was perfect for Becky!


My tip:   I love to give the dresses a little extra ruffle and fullness by stamping a few times and tucking layers under the top skirt.  I also add a little popdot or dimensional tape for extra dimension.




Every Day Beautiful Tag


The base of this tag is Julie Nutting's Tag pad.  The I added some Prima dies (which is part of the grand prize by the way)
The doll is wearing Kasisercraft  Kaleidoscope.  You can see how gorgeous the dies really are.




Want to win the doll I used or any of the other ones, the choice will be yours along with Time Traveler or Seashore collection paper pack by Prima. To be eligible all you have to do is:

Extra Bonus:  Directions to the Cowgirl Tag:

Instructions
Supplies Needed:
FabScraps - Gentleman's Club Collection -Thoroughbred paper C66007
FabScraps - Gentleman's Club Collection -  Airships paper C66003
FabScraps - Gentleman's Club Collection -  Gentleman;s Club paper C66004

Prima Flowers Le Mia D 571504
Prima Julie Nutting Doll Stamp 910457
Lace Trim
Jute
Brads
Cardstock/Ink/Cardboard or dimensional tape

1.     Background  Tag Preparation:
2.     Start with  FabScraps Gentleman’s Club Collection – Gentleman’s Club paper C66004 and cut strip approx  3.5in x9in to form base of tag.
3.     Cut small piece of  FabScraps Gentleman’s Club – Airships paper C66003  to use as bottom decorative edge.   Punch with decorative edge punch and attach to tag.
4.     Cover tag with lace.  You may need to use two pieces to overlap – that’s just fine. Glue in place.
5.     Cut large horse graphic from FabScraps Gentleman’s Collection Thoroughbred C66007.  Glue a small piece of cardboard or dimensional tape to the horse head so that just the head has a little dimension. 
6.     Glue horse to tag – his head will stick off the tag.  This is also good.
7.     Add lace and trim to the bottom of the tag as desired.
8.      Doll Stamp Preparation:
9.      Select cardstock for doll body and stamp the entire doll figure. Using dark ink – preferably black.
10.   Cut out stamped image to use as a base. Her clothing gets glued to this base.
11.   I create the doll using a series of stamps and cut out each piece.  The hair will be stamped onto either colored cardstock or colored with ink, paint or markers.
12.   Stamp  skirt and shirt and cut from pink cardstock.  Stamp and cut three pieces of skirt to layer . 
13.   Glue two pieces of the skirt side by side on the doll stamp.  This makes a fuller skirt.  Then add the last skirt piece on top with a piece of dimension tape or cardboard underneath.
14.   Boots and hat are stamped using FabScraps Gentleman’s Club paper C66004 and Horsing Around paper C66008 – accent with pink gem stones and pink cardstock.
15.   Vest is made from FabScraps  Gentleman’s Club Collection – Airships C66003.   Accent with trim and gems.
16.   Wind up approx 18in jute to use as a lasso leaving a little to wrap around doll as if she is holding it. . 
17.   Glue both lasso and doll tag in place.
18.   Embellishing and Finishing Touches:
19.   Using FabScraps Gentleman’s Club –Gentleman’s Picture ST66002 , take the horse circle sticker and back with cardstock.  This gives the sticker some richer color.  Glue to bottom of tag.
20.   Decorate with flowers, lace trim and brads as desired.
21.   You can also attach some folded cardstock on the back as a card.

  3. Your tags are gorgeous! Being a Texas girl, I have to say that I'm a tiny bit partial to the Texas one! :)

    ReplyDelete
  4. Those are both so beautiful, Jen! I can't believe how the horse looks like it was made for the doll stamp! I grew up in the country so I love to camp, hike, etc. but my heart is in the city with all the lights!

    ReplyDelete
  5. Your tags are gorgeous!!!! I especially LOVE the one with the horse! I'm a city slicker currently, but as a little girl I spent my summers in the country with my grandparents so I'm a country girl at heart! Love the sounds, smells, and feel of the country especially at night!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Sensational! I love the horses on Becky's tag, and also the bling on her boots - she's a bit of a fancy cowgirl!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Amazing Tag my dear

  8. I love both tags! I tend to gravitate towards be achy colors but am married to a country boy so I like cowgirl style too.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I just love a good blog hop because I get to follow more and more talented designers. I'm a country girl who dreams of being a beachy girl more often than the occasional vacation.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Gosh, your tags are seriously breathtaking! You always rock the Julie Nutting stamps!
    I think I'm most of all a beach person :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Holy cannoli---!Those are gorgeous!!!!!
    I am a country gal; after growing up in a big city, we moved to the country, and have never looked back. So much more peaceful!

    ReplyDelete
  12. What wonderful tags! LOVE the cowgirl one!!! I'm a mix between them all. I really enjoy the city (but not too big of a city) and the 'small' city that i live in just happens to be next to the ocean, so of course i enjoy the beach on a regular basis. And, once in a while, I go visit my Mom who lives in the country and i love the quiet feel of it. So you could say that i'm a city-beach-country girl! :P

    ReplyDelete
  13. I'm loving your blog! I love your everyday beautiful tag! I love the beach!!! This is an excellent blog hop! Thank you for the inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Love! Always amazing work....already a follower. I'd say I am not a city girl but could be a beach or country girl. Instead I live in an overcrowded suburb of a decent size city. Not sure what it makes me but I dream of my perfect location while I'm waiting to win the lottery :D.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Positively gorgeous both of them ... I am so in love with the country girl and the horse positively magnificent!

    ReplyDelete

  52. I love your tags!! I am definitely a beachy sort of gal ... although I don't live close to the beach any more and I miss it so much. There is something about the coast that is so special and soul healing and a lot of my greatest memories are associated with the beach.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Hi Jennifer! I'm now following your blog (but have been a fan for years)! I'm a Beach kind of girl (although I live in Pittsburgh and am not close to the beach)! I love to be on the beach, but never go into the Ocean,lol! My favorite thing to do is swim in a pool that is located on the Ocean!!!!!! I grew up in the big city, but am more of a suburb kind of girl now!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Hi,i am so in joying this hop :) I live in Auckland (city) but was raised in the country, I am defiantly a country girl / beach , Here in New Zealand you are never far from the sea,.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I'm already a follower :)
    I'm a country kind of girl (but not into horses!) I live in a rural area and love the peace & quiet, my chooks & ducks, and the native wildlife. Both of your tags are gorgeous... but if I had to choose a favourite I'd lean towards the city one :)

    ReplyDelete
