Step by Step: Hello Spring featuring Julie Nutting stamps

It’s that time of year when we are all ready for flowers, warm breezes and no more winter wear.  I decided to channel my longing for all of the above with a new decorative tag.  What better way to do so than using a Julie Nutting Paper Doll stamp and dress her up in spring attire. As an added bonus, I used the color palette from the March Prima Challenge.

I again combined two of the paper doll stamps, Marisol for the top half and Natalie for the bottom (I love her high heels!) I also used the short dress and ruffle stamps from the Dress & Skirts set as well as the wide brimmed hat from the Hats I set.

The step by step video is below, you’ll also find the materials list for this project below the video.

    Thank you all the way from South Africa 🙂 Loved the tutorial and the fact that you don’t waste time waffling on about things that have nothing to do with the tutorial.
