Ballerina birthday!

Today, I wanted to share a card I made for my sister for her 21st birthday! I’m really excited to give it to her! I know she’ll love it!

The Pink Elephant Challenge #139

I loved The Pink Elephant’s challenge photo inspiration here- the pinks and pastels especially. I immediately thought of Webster’s Pages Sunday Picnic.

I used the Dainty Dancing image from Lili Of The Valley. I colored her with Pro and FlexMarkers. I used:

Face: Almond, Pastel Pink and Blush
Hair: Almond, Walnut, and Auburn
Leotard/Slippers: Shocking Pink, Watermelon, Pale Pink and blender

To color the felt star, I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Yellow Rose of Texas. To color the banner I used my Watermelon FlexMarker. To add some sparkle, I used my Cotton Candy Pink Starburst Stain. (You’ll see the shimmer better in the photo below.) To add some sparkle to the leotard and slippers I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang’s magicals in Hottie Patottie Hot Pink. (It is also available in a spray HERE.) To color the stars, I used the Yellow Rose of Texas magicals, also available in a spray, linked above.

I used the double ended banner die from Papertrey Ink. I used Spellbinders stars fiveclassic oval large Nestabilities, and lacey ovals.

The video below shows you how I’ve used Lindy’s Stamp Gang, magicals to add minor details to really finish off the card. In the video I use a Stampin’ Up! blender pen, which can be purchased from any Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.

Added to the following challenges:

  3. Hi (not sure if you wanted this comment here or on the SPA Blog so have done both),
    You asked about storing Spellbinders Dies. Beate Johns inspired me (see Youtube) to create special files/folders using 12″chipboard (cut in half), covered in yummy designer paper, then bound with plastic binders (I got mine done very cheaply at OfficeWorks here in Australia who punched and bound my folders for me) then I use magnetic tape strips which I cut to size (I bought a 35m roll) this gives more flexibility as I find the magnetic sheets don’t engage all the nesties (in particular) together; and they slip out. I also keep an excel spreadsheet which lists (and shows images) all my Dies by name and I can also sort by number and/or where I purchased them.
