Well my beautiful little girl decided she wanted to wake up and come in mommies bed but we’re trying to correct this problem. They’ve been doing it almost every night since my Grandmother passed in May. Since I’m up I’ll do the How To for the Julie Nutting doll stamp.
Once you have all your supplies stamp your girl on all your paper. *Save paper and ink by only stamping what you need*
Now begins the fun part!!! I recently received a Silhouette Portrait from my sister but I haven’t played with it enough to be comfortable on having it do all the work for me. Eventually I’ll just let it do all cutting. For now, I fussy cut!!!
Normally I cut and start gluing so I don’t lose any tiny pieces but for this I waited until everything was cut out. When I cut, I plan on leaving a slight edge on some pieces so I can have something to glue the other pieces to. (Hmm does that make sense?) For example, the red dress has a little extra where the white sleeves and trim would go.
What pieces you start to glue down depends on how you cut your pieces. For mine, I started with the skin (usually my first piece) then added the red dress, white trim, brown hair, red hat, white trim and ended with those white shoes. If you don’t have a glue pen, I believe I got mine at Walmart. I suggest them for tiny pieces. They’re super easy to control the glue and get those hard to reach places.
I definitely wait until she’s completely dry before cutting her out again. I made that mistake once and almost had to start all over.
Here is this beauty on my card:
