If you loved playing with paper dolls as a child, here’s your chance to enjoy them all over again in your paper crafting!  The Dress Up Dolls: Winter Fun set coordinates with the Dress Up Dolls: Basics set and contains lots of fun accessories to get your Dress Up Dolls ready for some wintertime fun!  This set includes head-to-toe winter gear, a shovel, a pile of snowballs, and even a little snowman.  You can use the Dress Up Dolls: Basics and the Winter Fun sets along with their coordinating dies to create your very own set of paper dolls, but of course they’re perfectly at home on cards, tags, party invitations, and wraps, too.  Mix and match the accessories across the entire Dress Up Dolls line for endless fun!

The Details:

  • Dress Up Dolls: Winter Fun will be available for purchase on November 15th.
  • It will retail for $5.
  • Dress Up Dolls: Winter Fun contains a total of 14 images. The assembled dolls wearing head-to-toe outfits measure 2” wide and 4” high.  The shovel measures 1” wide and 2-1/4” high.  The snowman measures 1” wide and 1-1/2” high.  The “…delightful” sentiment measures 1” wide and 5/8” high. 
  • A coordinating die/collection will be available for sale separately, retailing for $9.  This collection includes a total of 13 dies.

Fill In the Blank is an absolutely must-have basic that will take your backgrounds to a whole new level. Is this a background stamp set? Or a sentiment set? How about a clever faux-masking combination of the two? Text blocks with blank areas and separate corresponding sentiment stamps and dies allow for all sorts of possibilities when you play with combinations and colors. Fill in the blank with the matching sentiments and it will looking like you are a masking pro. People will be wondering how you did it. Just smile, bask in the accolades, and hide your basic stamping supplies from view. Nobody needs to know all the work was built into the stamp set, leaving you to have all the fun.

Let It Snow Card

The newest accessories for the Dress Up Dolls are just as sweet as can be, especially when you pair them up with fun embellishments like pompoms!


I used a needle and thread to string pompoms and attached the ends to the back of this die-cut frame. How fun is that? And easy!


The little girl is colored with Copics in a fun mix of Winter Wisteria, Green Parakeet and Tropical Teal.


This would be a wonderful birthday card or something to enclose with a gift to beat the winter blues!

Ornament Tag

I also used the new Dress Up Dolls: Winter Fun stamps to create this easy keepsake ornament that has been personalized, perfect for adding to a gift.


By pairing the doll up with a cozy background and some alphabet/number stamps, I easily put this together in just a few minutes. There are so many ways it could be personalized, from monograms to nicknames, the date, noted milestones and more!


I added a few shaved ice flakes inside to serve as a fun shaker element. You could inexpensively make these for every child on your list!

Birthday Gift Card

I'm in love with Erin's new Fill in the Blank set. There is a blank space in each text block to add the same repeat sentiment with a pop of color or other technique. 


I doubled up the birthday block here and heat embossed it in white on Kraft cardstock to create the main part of the gift. This is topped with a new die-cut bow that you will be seeing more of throughout the week!


I stamped the sentiment on a die-cut white block that fits perfectly in the "blank" left in the text block. I used Raspberry Fizz ink to help create a visual triangle  with the bow.


All of this was attached to a Smokey Shadow card base. I think this has a nice sophistication that would be great for adults!

Just Because Card

I have one more project for you today using Fill in the Blank. I stamped the Just Because text block twice using Stormy Sea ink. I filled in the blank spot for the top block with Stormy Sea so it disappeared. 


For the blank spot in the bottom block, I added the reverse option for the sentiment stamped in Ocean Tides. I then added a rainbow of the the same block stamped above it for some color pop.

The frame elements included in the set are a great, simple basic that helps take any project up a notch!
