A stamp for a cause: This Sophie G Moose stamp (which I adore) is so wonderful - plus - a portion of the proceeds for the sale of this stamp set will go to the Kelly Laude Cancer Fund. It is totally worth it!!!
Back to this week's card:
This week's featured stamper is Terry (aka Terrore3) on SCS: Her gallery is chock full of wonderful creations to enjoy.
I chose a card: In Color Sassy which was a great layout for the Sophie G Ballet stamp.
I changed the colors to blush and white - a soft feminine mix and colored my little moose in copics. Remember, that Tim Holtz Ranger Black soot allows you to stamp and color with light copics IMMEDIATELY! I LOVE IT! I colored her in and then added some sparkle (sakura stardust) to the dress - then used a rhinestone bling on the front of her dress.
I trimmed the edge of the main image with the SU! corner rounder. It mimicked Terry's tag punch. My white base started the card, then I used a piece of cuttlebugged (with argyle folder) blush blossom and rubbed it with white craft to soften it even further. I popped Sophie G up on dimensionals, and popped the blush layer on dimensionals as well. I needed a sentiment, so I used the Hanna Everyday sentiment set (You're the best). I stamped it on a scrap of white, trimmed it and threaded each end in the word window punch (because it is a little longer than the WW punch)....I punched each end separately and it came out perfect. I popped that up on dimensionals. I used some white SU! grossgrain ribbon (which I colored with my blush su marker) and some sheer white polkadot ribbon (Mayarts/starlitstudio). I I used some brads I picked up in the Target dollar spot on each corner and the card was complete.
Sophie G is ready to dance!!!
