Raggedy Andy

I had so much fun with my Raggedy Ann that I had to make a Raggedy Andy. As much as I liked my Raggedy Ann, I needed to make a smaller piecing so it could easily fit on an A2 size card. I came up with this cute little guy. I found that I liked the blushing bride color for the skin tone over the crumb cake which looked a little washed out in my photos.

I featured this little guy on my Split Coast Stampers tutorial today. This week, my Sliding Pop Up card is the technique of the week. Check out the tutorial HERE.  Here is the card I created with my Raggedy Andy (tutorial is below).

EDIT: I've had a few people ask.  I used the Sizzix Valentines #4 embossing folder set to create the background on this card.

Raggedy Andy Instructions:

1) Punch the following pieces:

3 Word Windows in blushing bride (arms & neck)
1 1/4" Circle in blushing bride (head)
1/2" Circles in blush blossom (hands)
2 Word Windows in blue (bibs)
Large Tag (used to be labeled small tag in catalog) in blue (bibs)
Designer Label in blue (bibs)
2 Small Ovals in stripe (sleeves)
Medium Oval in stripe (shirt)
3/4" Circles in black (shoes)
2 Scallop Ovals in cherry cobbler (hair)
1 3/8" Square punch in vanilla (hat)
1/4" Circle punch in cherry cobbler (buttons)

2) Cut one third off on each of the striped small ovals to create the sleeves.  Cut both blue word windows in half.  Round out the ends.  Cut th designer label in half.  Round out the top corners.  Glue buttons onto bibs and draw button holes.  Cut one scallop oval in half.  Sponge edges with chocolate chip. Sponge edges of all blushing bride pieces with blushing bride  Sponge edges of blue pieces with not quite navy ink.  For hat, cut square in half corner to corner.  Cut one of the halves into half.   Sponge edges with crumb cake ink and glue smaller triangle onto larger triangle.  Cut a 1/2" wide strip.  Attach onto bottom of hat with dimensional and trim ends. Trim a little off the bottom of each black circle and round edges to create shoes.                                                                     


3) Glue straps onto top of designer label.  Using a 1/2" circle punch, punch a small half circle into the center top of the medium oval to create the neckline.  Glue onto back of straps.  Glue sleeves behind straps.  Glue designer label onto top of large punch piece. Glue cuffs to pants.  Draw on details and add highlights on pants with blender pen and navy ink.  Attach feet with dimensionals.  Glue neck onto back of body.  Using the Peachy Keen Rag Doll Faces stamp set (found HERE), stamp the face onto the 1 1/4" circle.  Add highlights to eyes with unibal gel pen and color nose and cheek hearts with cherry cobbler marker.  Glue scallop oval onto top of head and trim away the top.  Glue the other scallop oval halves onto back of head.  Attach hat with dimensional.  Attach head to neck with dimensional.  Attach hands to arms with dimensionals.  The string of hearts in his hands in the card sample are just 3/4" punched circles glued end to end with a red glitter heart popped onto the center of each circle.
