A Bouquet of Ballerinas

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…

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.








  1. This was a took my breath card. Took me forever to find it on your sight, for you don’t have a search button. So sweet and simple. My question is what punch or die did you use for the gray as a stand? Thank you

    • Gloria, The stamp set is the retired Sparkly Seasons. I hand cut the stand. Thanks very much for your kind comment. I will work on getting a search bar on the blog.
