ssink - convention swap blog hop


The gals of the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration blog are blog hopping today! It's hard to believe, but it's been almost a month since Stampin' Up! Convention where some of our group got the chance to meet each other...many of us for the first time!

Out to dinner at the Cheesecake Factory!
Me, Cynthia, Darla, Pam, Diana, Kim, Bree & Kathy

We had planned ahead of time to meet up to swap cards, so each of us created a card focusing on newer products from the 2014-2015 Catalog.

As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number 10 on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop - Bree at Craft-Somnia. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.

The card I created features the Sweet Stuff stamp set (you can see more of my samples using this set HERE). I also used the Dotty Angles Photopolymer set. When I put these together I visualized a dancer on stage with confetti coming down on her or even just the twinkling of lights all around her. I will admit the trio of thick Baker's Twine may not make this a cheap "mail-able" card, but I think the bow in the middle adds a fun touch!

I added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the tutu. Ballerinas can never have enough glitter and bling!

I love your card and as you know, Brooke does too! We had to get this set so that we could play with the little ballerina too!

Shellie Grindy said...

I absolutely love all the cards you have made with this set. It's cute to begin with but you showcase it really well :)

Kathy Peck said...

This card is just precious. Love the ballerina.

Cynthia said...

Such a cute little card. Love the dots and the sparkled circles. Thanks for swapping! I also enjoyed meeting you and hanging together some at convention. Until next year!

I love how you double stamped the dotty angles. Such a cute card!
