Moody Ballerina Dancing Step-Ups Card

Created for the Oak Tree Stamps Design Team

Here's another card using the adorable Moody Ballerina stamp set by Oak Tree Stamps. This adorable image was watercolored in pink then given an added shimmer to her tutu thanks to a clear Wink of Stella brush pen. Right now Oak Tree Stamps is having a special - 5 stamp sets for $35 plus free shipping!

Making the Card

1. Using the main Sizzix Step-Ups card die, cut the card base from pink cardstock and fold as instructed. Cut striped patterned paper using the large decorator die for the center of the card. Cut the purple patterned paper with the side (starred) decorator pieces. Adhere decorator pieces where shown.

2. Stamp "Dance" and "Like no One's Watching" from Oak Tree Stamps: Moody Ballerina set on polkadot patterned paper as shown. Cut out. Measure and cut a strip of pink paper 1/8 inch larger in each dimension to frame the sentiment. Adhere together as shown.

3. Stamp three dancing ballerinas from Oak Tree Stamps: Moody Ballerina in waterproof black ink on watercolor paper. Watercolor images. Add clear Wink of Stella to each tutu. Carefully cut around each with detail scissors. I used a craft knife to cut out the smallest areas. From the back side, go around edges with a black marker (I used a black Copic Multiliner with brush nib tip). This hide the white edges and gives them a finished look.

4. Cut pink cardstock using Spellbinders Lacy Ovals (check size against ballerina). Cut oval from polkadot patterned paper; adhere to lacy oval. Adhere this to main card as shown. Adhere sentiment where shown using dimensional tape. Adhere ballerinas where shown using dimensional tape.

5. Die cut one frame edge from purple cardstock; add clear Wink of Stella. Adhere to bottom of card where shown. Cut two lengths of pink/white twine. Tie in a single bow. Adhere button and twine as shown.
