Off with their heads- Prima Doll Hybrids

Hi Crafty Bloggers

I have such a treat for you today! Amira has been stamping and chopping.... I don't want to give away too much but I can tell you that heads were rolling!!!

Check out her fabulous creations.......

Hi Everyone,

Im back again to show you what Ive been doing during the not so lazy summer holidays.
Im one of those people who gets a bit bored with using the same stamps over and over again so I got this GREAT IDEA!!!

What would each Julie Nutting Doll look like if her head was placed on another body??

Lets test it out!!!

So to start off with, I only have the following Julie Nutting Doll Stamps:



And Aidan (the only boy stamp I have):

So the first thing I did was stamp them all out!!
This took lots of time and in my fervour, I didn't not take pictures at this stage.
But you know what that stage looks like !!

Let me just say that I use Archival Ink for all my stamping!!

Then, the next stage is the one that takes the most time!!

Colouring in or paper piecing!
I did a bit of each to mix it up a bit.

Here is ones I remembered to take a picture of:

Now for the grisly bit!!

I started chopping off the heads off each of the dolls!
If you are doll squeamish, look away now!!

Leaving behind lots of headless bodies...

Like this!!

It was getting pretty precarious as the dolls kept piling on and the heads lolling about (LOL) everywhere ;)

So, I decided to line things up by keeping the body constant and changing out the heads.

That stream-lined everything and I was set !!!

Queue the music!

Sit back and watch the fashion show!!

First in line- Here is Mermaid Sallie's body as you've never seen her before!!

From the left to the right-

Mermaid Sallie with Nikki's head
Mermaid Sallie with Taylor's head
Mermaid Sallie with Meghan's head
And original Mermaid Sallie

Next in line is Aidan's body:

Aidan was the hardest of the group because he has a wider head and larger shoulders so I had to contour his neck to fit on the dainty shoulders of the girl stamps.

Next in line was Taylor's body:

From the left to the right-
Taylor's Body with Aidan's head
Taylor's Body with Nikki's head
Original Taylor
Taylor's Body with Meghan's head
And Taylor's Body with Mermaid Sallie's head

Here comes Nikki's body:

From the left to the right-
Nikki's Body with Aidan's head

Nikki's Body with Taylor's head
Nikki's Body with Meghan's head
And Nikki's Body with Mermaid Sallie's head

And last of all, here is Meghan's body:

From the left to the right-
Meghan's Body with Aidan's head
Meghan's Body with Nikki's head
Meghan's Body with Taylor's head
Original Meghan's
And Meghan's Body with Mermaid Sallie's head

That was a lot of work!!
But don't they look fantastic?

Now just to show you how much work it was, take a look at this picture I took with them spread out on my dining table!

I had to stand up on the table to be able to show them all to you.

Hmmm, so this begs the question, what do I do with ALL these dolls????
Any suggestions???
Also, which one is your fave???
Would love to hear from you in the comments below.
I hope you found inspiration here.


Wow! Thank you Amira, what a clever project! They are so awesome. If I had to pick one.... I'd say Sallie's head on Nikki's body. But they're all super!!

What do you think Readers?

  1. Wow Amira, these are amazing! What a clever idea, my favourite one is the one you have drawn the face on, I am afraid I struggle with faceless stamps. What to do with them? Make lots of wonderful cards OR attach them to string and hang them up like banners, would look nice in your craft room I think.
