I used the largest doll from the Hero Arts Russian Dolls acrylic stamp set. The Matryoshka or nesting dolls are very popular in both Russian and Ukrainian culture.
When Stampin' Up! released their "Hello Doily" stamp I had to get it! The doily is the pineapple pattern. My mother crocheted doilies in her sleep! We had a doily under everything! This was one of her favourite patterns.
So here is a sampling of some of the tags I made.
I "paper pieced" the nesting dolls; stamped on pattern paper; then on white cs. I used chalks on her face and red and green Copics on her scarf. I then cut her head and scarf out and glued her to the pattern paper body.
Here is a back view, showing the pocket with the ticket, which is blank on one side to write a greeting:
I had to keep the bling down to a minimum as I had to mail them all. A lot of fun to make and remembering mum as I made them. Hope you all are "gettin' her done"!
Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas!
