Polka Dot Pals Quoba

It's day three of the Polka Dot Pals Add-on Faces!

Being Day 3, I'm sure you're up on all the information.
However, today you'll find tips on how to combine the digital Polka Dot Pals with the clear rubber Polka Dot Pals Add-on Faces. So be sure to visit the LMMS Facebook group for more tips!

For my project, I've used Polka Dot Pals Quoba.


I added one of the Add-on Faces and colored her in light colors.  The markers weren't working well on this paper as you can see on the face and right arm. It has started to get gunky so I did the best I could to cover it up and then moved on.

These are the Copic colors that I used:

E0000, 00, 30, 31, 34, R11
YR24, 31, E30, 51, 53
R02, 14, 29
YG21, 17, 23
BG02, 10, 11
B31, 23, 39
T1, 3, 9, BV23
YG17, 21, 23, 67, 99


I kept the card simple. I found some green gingham paper which worked well with the watermelon theme.  Why is that? I don't know but they seemed to fit. Then added a little red and black for the base of the card. I sewed the edges and added a couple gems.  Done!


The Polka Dot Pals Add-On Faces clear stamps can also be used with the digital Polka Dot Pals. Digital and rubber - how's that possible?  No, that doesn't mean you stamp your monitor. LOL

This is for those who know how to resize and manipulate your digital stamp. The process is simple - you'll resize your digital stamp, print it, then stamp it with the clear stamp.  The measurements you'll need to resize are listed below. Remember there are two different sizes of Add-on Faces so you can choose which one fits your project the best.

(Both images can be clicked on to make them larger.)


As you can see, the figures given are for the Polka Dot Pals pupils and measure from outside edge to outside edge. I like to rotate my digital Pal (if needed) so the pupils are level with each other. Then I'll use the ruler bar and place guidelines where needed. For the large size, the dimensions of 0.79 worked out to be just over 20.1 millimeters. So I've set my guidelines just larger at 40 and 60 millimeters.  These guidelines make it super easy to size the pupils within the box.

As a tip, keep your project opened or saved so you can make minor adjustments if needed. After printing, the clear Add-on Faces are then easy to stamp on like normal.  Done!


Stay tuned for one more day of festivities - and tomorrow you'll see how versatile these Add-on Faces are with other stamps - it's just the beginning of possibilities!

Polka Dot Pals Lirienne

If you're just tuning in, check out the previous post on all the release details and then pop into the LMMS Facebook group to catch up on everything. Today you'll find tips on a second way to use the Polka Dot Pals Add-on Faces in case alignment is a bit jittery.


For my project, I used Polka Dot Pals Lirienne and stamped her on Balsa Wood.  However, before I did that, I wiped the ink away from the pupil of her eyes.  This truly gave her a blank face!  LOL I wanted to do that so when I used the vampire face, the eyes would have an eerie glow to them. 


This is also a technique you could use if you had trouble aligning the eyes or if you wanted to use them on another type of image.  The easiest way to do this is to use a cotton swap.


I then colored my image using Prismacolor Pencils.  The skin tones were more grayish and white colors for a nice vampire glow.  The eyes and lips I did in red because I really wanted it to stand out and the white highlights help give it a finished look.  Coloring on Balsa Wood is my favorite way to use my pencils as the texture is very soft.


The rest of the card was put together with a bunch of odds and ends. Gesso was used on the back decorative paper and Make it Crafty Chipboard are some of the embellishments. I also used the metal dies Just Saying and Mini Alpha & Numbers Cutters from CC Designs.  Lastly for a bit of a fun element, I suspended the sentiment with an Action Wobbles Spring.

 For my project, I'm using Polka Dot Pals Toby with one of the alien Add-on Faces. I also used the Little Houses in the background. These houses come in both digital and clear stamp form. But during this event, if you order the Add-on Faces then you get the clear Little Houses FREE!


The sentiment was created using Make it Crafty Chipboard and then colored with a black Copic marker.  The blue gems were added to symbolize stars because I thought the background looked light night time in blues and no details. Then I wrapped the bottom of the card with twine to give the houses a solid ground feel.  Lastly, I added a little red to highlight the cape.


These are the Copic markers that I used to color Polka Dot Pals Toby:

B0000, 000, 00, 01, BG02, R00, 11
BV20, 23, 25
C1, 3, 5, 7, N5, W9
V09, 05, 04, 20, 15, 25, 17
R12, 05, 24, 27, 46, 37, 39
YG01, 21, 23, 07, 17, G19, 29
Y13, 15, 18
B91, 93, 95, 97
