Class Act Blog Challenge #1

This is my first posting for the Class Act Design Team and the stamps I'm playing with this month are brand new in the Dolls of the World series.  When I was a little girl, I had a set of It's a Small World paper dolls which I loved.  I would spend hours drawing and coloring new outfits for them.  Working with these stamps has brought back so many fond memories!

Today is also the first Class Act Blog challenge, and we were challenged to make a creation that used embossing, three or more layers, and bling.  There wasn't really any challenge here at all.  I knew right from the start what I wanted to use the Hannah, the little Dutch girl, and that I would use the Cuttlebug Highlights technique (Technique Junkies Oct 2008).  I colored Hannah's costume with Copic markers and highlighted my embossing by on rubbing a couple shades of blue die ink directly from the ink pads.  For my bling, I added crystals to my scalloped oval mat.

You are welcome to play along with us and maybe even with a prize.  All the information you need to know about the challenge is posted on the Class Act Insider blog.  You'll also find links to the rest of the Design Team's creations so be sure to pop on over there.

Happy Friday and thanks for stopping by!


  1. This is so adorable. I love your colouring. The background turned out beautifully.

  2. Your colouring is lovely and the ink added to the embossing really makes it stand out. I loved paper dolls too when I was a little girl! Loved to draw outfits for them ... guess we were always crafty/artsy :-)

  3. How pretty! I really like how you colored the doll and added the small flower in the corner!

  4. Love this card! I`m dutch so this really appeals to me. It appeals to me so much that I ordered some stamps including this one. I had never heard of Class Act and I`m glad you posted this. I am also in Canada so hopefully my order will be here soon!


It's so nice to hear from you...thanks for taking the time to comment!
