Recently, a co-worker asked whether I had any Matroyshka doll stamps. I knew I might (if not sold) have one on in my stash… but couldn’t quite put my hands on it.
That was until last weekend… when I hauled a box of gently used stamps to my craft fair booth…. And there it was! Happily surprised, I pulled the My Matryoshka stamp set from the “for sale” box and quickly stamped a few images to color while manning the craft fair booth!
The next day, the images I had colored were quickly assembled into cards… this is one of them, featuring just a little bit ‘o bling!
Hello from the “lacy and lovely” stamp set was the perfect punched sentiment for today’s To Russia With Love card…. LOL, my co-worker has relatives in Russia and recently attended a family wedding there too.
Matroyshka dolls are nesting dolls, often quite identical until you reach the tiniest doll nested within. I have a few collectible Santa Claus Matroyshka Dolls, and a few authentic Russian dolls as well… as I’ve always been intrigued by them.
I tried to use bright and bold colors for the matroyshka doll image… and on Monday morning, surprised my co-worker with two hand made cards featuring the lovely fun images. She tells me they are on their way to Russia with Love… hence the title of today’s blog post!
Tomorrow I’ll share a traditional and current stampin’ up stamp set for the Paper Crafts Crew Sketch challenge! I hope you’ll stop back by to say hi!
In the mean time, I look forward to reading your comments and thank you for visiting my blog.
