Blast from the Past! this is totally going to date me but here goes anyway!! The card that I made today is for the Paper Smooches Sparks challenge. They have a sketch that you follow and off you go! I admit I don't have a lot of Paper Smooches stamp sets in my collection yet but one that I do have is the "Knick Knacks" set. I immediately fell in love with this set when I saw this doll. She totally took me back to my childhood where I played with Holly Hobbie and of course Raggedy Ann! Doesn't she look like her? Anyway, I couldn't wait to get to work on this challenge so that I could finally have an excuse to stamp her out and color her! I stamped the image in Black Memento Ink and colored her with my copic markers(an image of the colors I used will be posted below). I then did the same thing with the wagon and placed her inside of it then I covered the wagon with "Glossy Accents" to make it shine. I added some Hero Arts Bling and some hearts that I die cut from the Lawn Cuts die "Hearts" ....and then covered them with my clear "Wink of Stella" pen. I hope this card takes you back in time. Please leave me a comment and tell me what your favorite toys/dolls were growing up. I love to hear from my Stamping Friends :) Enjoy!!

These are the markers I used :)


  1. I absolutely love what you did, no doubt about it, this card is super cute! Thanks for playing PSS! Ps. Age is just a number right? I remember raggedy Ann too ;)

  2. LOL! I love that you think mentioning Raggedy Ann might date you--- NEVER! I remember her and her brother! My brothers and I had both dolls when we were growing up:)

    LOVE this little card-- what a great set of papers for this image! Great take on this sketch:) THANKS so much for joining in the fun and playing along with the Paper Smooches SPARKS Designer Drafts challenge <3
