Meet Mindy, my prima doll …

Happy Monday! The sun is shining, it’s time for summer dresses, and so now for something completely different … meet Mindy, my prima doll…

Prima doll Mindy for Pasha's birthday

Can you fall in love with a paper doll? ‘Cos I think I have! 

A very good friend of mine, Joanne, gave me this stamp as a present, as well as a beautiful handmade card, and I just love, love, love her!

Inspired by Joanne’s card, I did some paper-piecing to make a card for my friend’s little girl, Pasha, who turns 9 today …

Pasha has the most gorgeous, dark-brown, curly hair, so I gave the dolly hair just like hers, using chocolate chip polka dot designer series paper (dsp) from Stampin’ Up!, and a pretty dress in sweet sorbet dsp.

It’s a little difficult to tell from the photos, but I added dazzling diamonds glitter to parts of the dress, shoes and flower centres too, for some birthday sparkle …

I stamped flowers from the flower shop and petite petals stamp sets by Stampin’ Up, punched out with the co-ordinating punches, and scattered them around the card.

So a huge thank you to Joanne for my lovely present and card – I love them both to bits, and a big shout out and happy birthday to the lovely Pasha – hope you have a fabulous birthday sweetie.

  1. Love the card and the name of the stamp. I have a daughter Mindy (Melinda). She, too, has long curly hair, almost like springs. Is this a polymer stamp?

  2. Love it Gill, I have 2 of these stamps but I don’t think they have a name? xxx

  3. So cute! What a sweetie card for a teenager.
