Cute little Matryoshka Dolls

<---------Check this out ;o)
Susanna Boyd featured me again for Best of the BLOGOSPHERE.

Thought I would share a very quick post today. This is not one of the new release stamps but it is a My Cute Stamps stamp set. Matryoshka Dolls has been so much fun to play with. Each time I ink them up, I get more fun ideas on what I can do with them. Not sure you can see how these dolls are not only stamped twice but the second time, I stamped them, then heat embossed, cut them out, wrapped them around a large barrel marker to get them to curve. They were them adhered to the card using a slightly taller foam square. The way that they are curved really brings them to life. Hopefully you can see that effect in the photo.

The flowers that I stamped in each corner is also from the Matryoshka Doll set.

Here is the set that you could
