OK, so yesterday's card was all about the boys and Star Wars.  So today's card is for the girls.  I have 3 nieces and one daughter to make girly cards for, so I'm always looking for new ideas.  Jessica is still loving Dora and Strawberry Shortcake now but my nieces are a little bit older.  So what does googling get me this time?  La La Loopsy dolls!!

I'm not sure yet if I like La La Loopsy dolls, I find their button eyes and shaped hair very odd but I guess if that is what girls like, well that's what girls like!!

This little dolly did have ringlets for her hair but these photos are taken after the card travelled with me to Melbourne, tucked safely into an envelope (also squashing the wing of the butterfly I can see).

This card also uses punches and a tiny bit of scissor work to make the card, but all in all, quite easy.  The ringlets (when she did have them) were made by wrapping the thin pieces of her hair around a pencil and holding their shape.

I've used lots of bright colours on this one, just to make it fun for my niece Isla who just turned five.  There was nowhere I could put the number 5 without overdoing the front of the card, so I kept that for inside the card!

I've used a few Stampin' Up! supplies for this card, listed as follows:

Stamps: Memorable Moments
Inks: Early Espresso inks, Regal Rose & Basic Black markers
Papers: Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, Island Indigo & Melon Mambo CS, scrap DSP
Punches: 1 3/4" Circle punch, Small Oval punch, Word Window punch, Decorative Label punch, Owl Builder punch (for hair bows!!)
Other: Big Shot, Dressed Up Framelits (for dress), Beautiful Wings Embosslit & Honeycomb Embossing Folder, Rhinestones, black brads & pink seam binding

My inspiration for the LaLaLoopsy doll card came from the Luvin Stampin' Up! website and you'll also find more examples and a video tutorial.  Love that!
