Putting on my CRAFTplorations ballet shoes for STAMPlorations

Hello I am back again with a new post for STAMPlorations

using another design from the awesome new CRAFTplorations shapes. There are some really gorgeous shapes over there. Today I am using the delightful Ballet shoes in 1.5 mm MDF which are 3" high. In this material you get 15 in a pack. I decided to incorporate mine into a special card.

My daughter has always loved ballet and danced to quite a high level when she was younger. My little granddaughter Daisy also dances and loves her ballet lessons.  Let's hope it's not too long until classes can reopen.
As you well know I am not really a very pink girl but being the Mum and Nanna to 2 ballet dancers I know that ballet shoes just have to be pink (and in real life satin!)

So I got out my Paperartsy fresco paints again and painted a pair of pink ballet shoes with pale pink ribbons.

I wanted to make my shoes stand out on my card so I die cut the smallest rectangle from my
crazy double running stitch die to make a focal for my card.
I used red foil embossing powder and stamped a greeting from the
birthday bash stamp set
 and then attached my ballet shoes with some pink satin ribbon.
I created a very simple Infusions background to finish off my card.
Here it is
with a couple of close ups.
 and one final shot.

  1. Beautiful Jane, as you know I'm not a pink person either but we have a little ballerina too, so those shoes have to be pink ... let's hope it isn't too long until the girls get back to their ballet lessons.
    Gorgeous use of the ribbon too. :)

  2. Sooooooooooooo adorable! I especially love how you did the ribbon around the ballet shoes!

  3. My daughter is a dancing girl, and she love to receive any project of these cute ballet shoes, so pretty! Thanks for showing the steps!

  4. I just love the addition of the ribbons. It's a natural, but I wouldn't have thought of it.

  5. Loving this fabulous card Jane - that background looks as though you used Brusho's or similar - it's perfect to show off the shoes, and the ribbon treatment is stunning
    Stay safe

  6. si very pretty. I thought that background was splatter. Really live 5hat. And... if course they had to be pink!

  7. Nice mix of elements. I like the addition of the ribbon.

  8. Pretty ballet shoe card. My granddaughter would love this.

  9. I love how delicate and elegant this card looks! Great products and tutorial!
