All in the Family

I have no artistic talent whatsoever for drawing. None. At all. Seriously. When I taught high school, I occasionally drew stick figures to illustrate a topic, but would always get a hard time from my students about my drawing. My attempts at drawing sheep were legend! Now I have had a play with a stamp set that solves all my stick figure issues!

One of my hostesses this month has the set All in the Family and wanted some ideas for cards, so I searched splitcoaststampers to find some inspiration. These little characters are rather cute - and five hundred percent better than mine were - but I did find them a lot fiddlier than I expected, even using my wonderful stamp-a-ma-jig!

This was one of the easiest bodies to use, as the hands and feet came attached already! The design is simple and can easily be changed for a boy.

My hostess loves bold, bright colours, so this next one will be a hit with her, I'm sure.

And lastly my favourite, cos those baby faces are just so darn cute! Unfortunately the colours didn't photograph well - my bad.

If you are similarly afflicted with Stick Figure Syndrome, here's the perfect set for you! LOL! Thanks for dropping by.

Hi there,

I am desperately looking for this type of stick figures to make some notepads for friends. I'm confused, though. Did you use stamps for this or it is a graphic online that can be downloaded or purchased?

Thanks.
Lara
