A friend of mine had seen a ballet themed Pop n Cuts card that I created and suggested that I should make a few things to have available at the dance studio.  Well, I haven’t.  There’s this really cute little ballerina girl in Stylin’ Girl and though I like her, I didn’t want all of my creations to look the same — since the girls don’t.  After today’s creation, I think I’ve got one idea that will work.  You may want to use it for your little one.

Sweetie Pie Stylin' Girl Pin from theartfulinker.com

 

 

 

Yes, I know she’s not a ballerina.  But, she could have been if I had used the other stamp in the Stylin’ Girl set.  However, she is a pin.  Isn’t she cute!!  I can see her as a Mother’s Day gift.  She’d be really cute on a jacket.  Ohhh! or on one of those burlap covered picture frame inserts — you could make a whole group of girls.

Here’s what I did.  First I stamped Stylin’ Girl on a piece of Coaster Board in Basic Gray and cut her out.  I repeated this and adhered the two layers together with Crystal Effects.  While wet, I thought this was not going to be sturdy enough for a pin.  But with a little bit of patience for drying, I found that was enough density to be sturdy.  Next, I Stamped Stylin’ Girl on Whisper White.  From this stamping, I wanted just the arms, legs and neck.  Using my Blender Pen and Pink Pirouette, I carefully colored these pieces to give them a little skin tone (the Skin Tone Blendabilities coming in the new catalog will be great for this).  Those pieces were cut out and adhered to my chipboard layers with Crystal Effects.  Now, I stamped on a piece of copy paper so that I could cut a pattern for her dress.  Using the pattern, I cut a piece of I Am Me designer paper.  (Tip: save the copy paper pattern in the stamp case for future use).  This too was adhered with Crystal Effects.  Then, I used a Stampin’ Write Marker and colored her shoes Real Red to coordinate with her new dress.  Now, the old head had to come off (sorry!).  After repeating the Coaster Board steps for the new Sweetie Pie head, I then stamped the head on Whisper White.  Her hair was colored in with a Stampin’ Write Marker in Baked Brown Sugar and I added a couple of bands of Real Red to look as if she has ribbons in her hair.  On the back of all of the pieces, I added a piece of Whisper White cardstock so that the back looks finished and then adhered her new head to her body using Crystal Effects.  Finally, after spraying her all over with sealer, I added a pin back using Crystal Effects.

I think she’s cute and definitely needs some friends/sisters; a few of them will certainly be ballerinas.
