I love to combine rubber stamps and Viva las Vegastamps! have so many that complement each other.  I am a paper doll girl who likes to change them up.  Several of the beautiful VLVS face stamps fit on the paper doll bodies......go ahead and try'll like it.

1. Flesh colored(smooth textured) cardstock
2. Print paper for dress
3. 4 Sm. Brads in the color of your paper
4. Adhesive

I used this Creative Imagination paper for my inspiration:

I cut the dress and apron out of the center print.
The bottom of the apron is a flower shape
cut from the center paper. 
I used the fancy border as her hat and dress hem border.

I cut the body out of foundation core paper gold color.
It looks the most like a skin color to me.

I next layer the doll as I planned to connect it with brads.
I exchanged the doll head with the the
lady with the cherub hat.

I cut the dress sleeves with the arm pattern and adhered them 
together and left the hands
out at the bottom.

For the dress itself I used the body as a pattern and flared the skirt to
the size I wanted.
I also made an apron by cutting a square neckline and adding a hand cut
flower for the bottom from the skirt paper.
I adhered these directly to the dress with adhesive

I used the face from lady with cherub hat and cut a free hand hat.  I used the
cut out trim on the paper as embellishment.  My final addition was
the placement of the vintage flower sticker.  The arms on the
paper dolls are great for holding whatever you desire.
