KLM Designs: Ballerina Emily

This is a sneak peek of a digital stamp that will be released on Monday at KLM Designs. Her name is Ballerina Emily. I colored her with prismacolor pencils and OMS and used my curved rectangle die to cut and emboss it. The pattern paper from Basic Grey Two Scoops pad was my color inspiration. I wanted to give her a soft, vintage feel. I am not sure how well I pulled it off, but I like it. Check it out, I even used my sewing machine on the edges. Well, don't look too close, my sewing skills need improvement. I had to clear away all the stuff that always seems to get piled up in front of my sewing machine. After sewing the edges, I used my fingernail to distress the edges. I used a classic oval nestie to cut and emboss a mat behind the image and another curved rectangle nestie to cut some Bazzill cardstock to layer that on. The gems are cell phone bling that I colored with a BG72 Copic marker to match the paper. I think the ribbon is from Michael's but I am not sure. I just overlapped the edges of the ribbon and used a little piece of ATG tape to stick it together then tied a button from the Rhonna Farrer Christmas collection around it to make the bow. I added a glue dot to the back to stick it to my card.

Hey, have you checked out KLM Designs lately? Katy has added a lot of new digital stamps to her store. Some really fantastic images.

Have a blessed day!

What a lovely card Karen! I love the name of that stamp, Emily is my 9 year olds stamp.

P.S. That was not one of my DD on the show. I could have had my 4 children on the show, but it would have turned into a "reality show" and not a craft segment, LOL!
