My card share today is very photo-heavy but I think you will enjoy it. Here is my bouquet of ballerinas…..
I shared a card earlier this month here featuring the same ballerina. Well I had such a good time creating that card, I just had to do another and another and another……! I love how delicate the little ballerina is when you fussy cut her out. I received a lot of comments about fussy cutting. I find it pretty relaxing and do not mind it a bit. The ballerina is stamped twiced. First image is colored and cut and the second image only needs the tutu colored and cut. Then I placed the second tutu on top of the first with a small piece of dimensional to give it more “poofi-ness”. The entire ballerina is adhered with dimensionals also.
The stamp set is the Sparkly Seasons stamp set that is unfortunately retired now. It was in the Holiday Catalog. I just love the idea of snow globes so I wanted to hang onto this set a little while longer and I’m very glad I did.
The sentiments for the card are from the Remembering Your Birthday stamp set. Here is the inside sentiment…
Here is the parade of ballerinas that I came up with…..
Bermuda Bay Perfect Plum
Blushing Bride Marina Mist
The embossing folder is the Polka Dots (retired) and the ribbon and the sequins are from Michaels. I did the best I could with matching these to the cardstock. The envelope liner DSP is retired also. I think this is a great way to use up retired paper and still have a very coordinated project. I do love all the current Stampin’ Up! products and use them but sometimes some of the retired sets still have a lot of life left in them for me.
I hope that you enjoyed these adorable dancers as much as I enjoyed creating them. I know a few little dancers that I will be sending them to.
I also wanted to mention that I have been receiving a number of online orders with no contact information. If you are placing an order and wouldn’t mind entering your contact info, I would love to send you a special “thank you” for shopping with me. Starting this week through April, anyone who places an order of $50 or more will receive a package of Basic Pearl Jewels and a handmade card. If you did place an order with no contact information and would like to receive a thank you gift, please just email me your contact info and order # and I will be happy to send you one. Everyone deserves a thank you!
Thanks so much for taking the time to look in on my project today.
