Dolls Love a Bubble Bath too! Day TWO of Viva Las VegaStamps! and Scor-Pal Inspiration Week

Hello - welcome to day two of the Scor-Pal and Viva Las VegaStamps! rubber stamps week of inspiration!  Today I have a special project in store. I've created a paper dollhouse powder room, complete with faux ceramic tile, hand doodled vellum shower curtain and a girly bubble bath. 

This little dollhouse scene was totally inspired by two of the amazing tutorials over at the Scor-Pal website {a tile card by Susan Caplan and the "happy place" card by Cary Eldred}. I have this adorable tub stamp and I couldn't help but pay homage to both of these creative ladies cards - combining some elements from each, and housing it in some quick and easy box techniques provided there as well. I usually measure and score my own boxes and such using my paper trimmer - NO MAS! I'm a Scor-Pal girl now.


What does one do on a rainy day??? Play with dolls! I have been busy stamping and scoring up rooms for my neices' dolls. I have scored Kromecote cardstock and vellum hand doodled with Sakura Souffle® 3-D Opaque Ink pens.

This posh powder room has the look of real tiles {but it's only paper} to showcase this adorable bath tub stamp #5508. I've adhered the scored and folded walls edging and details with Miracle Tape from VLVS!, too!

I'm all about the details and I had so much fun customizing this little room all out of paper using my Scor-Pal.

I hand stamped, embossed with VLVS! High Gloss Embossing Powder,then hand colored the tub using Sakura of America Gelly Stardust Pens. I fussy cut and set aside.

I hand doodled a sheet of vellum and scored
at 1/4" intervals then accordion folded.

I pinched accordion together and punched
a hole to suspend curtain on a wire.

I scored and rolled over edging secured with Miracle Tape.

 I set an eyelet to accept wire to suspend curtain.

The faux tile is Kromecote cardstock scored on the Scor-Pal and swiped with a pale blue ink. Looks so realistic and it was so quick and easy to make. The details are what makes handmade goodies like this so special. My niece is sure to enjoy playing with this.
