Hey everyone, hope your Monday is going well. I wanted to share a card I created this afternoon after cleaning up from Saturday’s classes. I just love the Sugarplum Dreams stamp set and wanted to create something with the ballerina. Now I haven’t been around many ballerinas in my life, never danced myself, and the closest I came with any of my daughters was drill team and cheerleading. But this one in the set is just too cute not to add to a card.

I started with a piece of Whisper White and stamped her with the Memento ink since I was planning on using the new Stampin’ Blends markers. I used the Ivory for her skin tone, the Bronze for her hair, the Dark Daffodil Delight for her crown, and the Pool Party combo for her dress. Once I was done coloring her, I ran the Whisper White through the Big Shot using the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes framelits. The card base is Thick Whisper White and I cut a piece of the Christmas Around the World DSP  for the background. I stamped the sentiment with the black ink, then took the Fine Tip Glue pen and dotted it across the DSP and sprinkled on some Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter.  I then took one of the Snowflake Doilies in silver and added it to the back of the oval, then adhered it to the card front with dimensionals. I wanted her outfit to shine a little more so I added some Wink of Stella. Then I added a couple of the Glitter Enamel Dots and called it done. I love the look of it! Here’s a close up shot of her dress.
