Queen Bee

Hello again dear friends.  I'm back with another tag using my favourite Julie Nutting doll stamp.  This time it was for a swap with my craft club friends where we had to make use of a blue and white napkin.  I peeled off the top layer of the napkin and stamped the doll stamp on it with white ink so it would show up easily then I cut the dress out and layered it onto my doll stamped onto the pre-printed tag and coloured with Distress markers.

These Prima tags are so lovely and they are printed on both sides.  Once I'd got the dress wrinkle-free, I added a little flower at the waist and some lovely blue crochet lace at the hem.  The bee and crown stamps were from a sheet of free stamps available with Issue 16 of Creative Stamping. (A gorgeous sheet of stamps if you haven't already seen it)  The dark blue ribbon just finished it off, along with some word strips.

The box I got in return was amazing, decorated with lots of flowers made from the napkin.  Other items in the swap included a napkin-wrapped candle, a coathanger, a pair of pixie shoes as well as cards.  Its amazing how one napkin can spark off so many different ideas! 

Hope your creativity is blooming, like the beautiful flowers in my garden enjoying the warmth and the gentle rain at the minute.  Thanks for popping in to see me.  Margie x


  1. This is one of my favourite of Julie Nutting's doll stamps and I LOVE the dress you have given her, I would never have guessed it was a napkin. The lace around the bottom looks fabulous and the little additional flower matches the dress so well. I love that Prima tag too. Hugs, Anne xx

  2. Love the way you've used that napkin for the dress on this beautiful tag Margie. Jenny x
