If All Else Fails, Put On a Tutu and Twirl

I’m back today for CAS-ual Fridays Stamps sharing a slimline card, showcasing the Tutu stamp set and Ballerina Fri-dies.

I ink-blended my slimline panel with some distress oxide inks and adhered this piece on a slimline card base measuring 8 1/2 by 7 scored at 3/12 inches.

I used a die from my collection to die-cut the “film strip” and foam-mounted this piece on my colored background.

I stamped the little ballerinas with some black alcohol ink and die-cut using the Ballerina Fri-dies.  I also foam-mounted them onto my card for added dimension.

I ink-blended another piece of card stock and stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I sprinkled some clear embossing powder, and heat-set using my heating tool.  I fussy-cut the sentiment and adhered this on the card with foam adhesive.

To finish my design, I used my white gel pen to add more texture to the sentiment and adhered some iridescent jewels on each of the ballerina’s hair.  Here’s another look:

Put On A Tutu & Twirl with CAS-ual Fridays

Hello CAS-ual Fridays fans! I’m back today with a simple inspirational card, showcasing the Tutu stamp set.

Tutu Stamp Set

I started out with some Bristol smooth white card stock and inked in up with Squeezed Lemonade and Wild Honey distress oxide inks.  I blended the colors together and sprayed it with water using my distress spray bottle.  I dabbed it dry with paper towel.

I used a snowflake stencil from my stash and applied my Nuvo Glimmer paste using my palette knife.  I let it dry for about half an hour.

I stamped my little ballerina with my Jet Black ink and colored the image with my Copic markers.  I fussy-cut the image with my scissors and adhered this piece with some foam adhesive.

I just LOVE the sparkly effect of the glimmer paste taking on the color underneath.  I finished my design my stamping my sentiment with Versafine Onyx black ink.  Here’s a little close-up:

I added some sparkling clear jewels on my little ballerina too.  I am giving this card to a friend of mine.  Her granddaughter is now taking ballet lessons and I think she’s going to love this card.

I hope you like my card today.  Don’t forget to use my coupon code below for 15% off your order.  Also check out the retiring stamps sale because once they are gone, it will not be restocked anymore.
