Here's the Design Team: Lois, Kelli Jo, Pat G, Karen , Kathy, Toni, Janine, Shirley Q, Gail, Vickie, Marks Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co.

I wanted to show a bit about how I created today's card.  First up, I did some selective inking.  I used some post-its to cover up the tabs on my dolls outfit and then tapped my ink pad over the stamp.  I removed my post-its and then stamped the outfit.
Then I stamped and trimmed out a mask for the outfit. 
Next, I stamped my paper doll over the top of my mask.
I peeled back my mask, colored my paper doll and her outfit and then trimmed her out.  May I now present the out in winter paper doll.
Finally, I created a card to showcase this darling paper doll!  I found some fun light gray polka dotted paper to back out my sweet doll!
Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day.  Off you go to Janine now.
Be sure to check back on January 14, 15 & 16 for the continuation of our Blog Hop. We will be introducing the other three new stamps sets for January.
