My first card features the new Ballet set. Such a lovely pair of ballet slippers and wonderful sayings and quotes to go with it. I took ballet as a young girl and to this day when I think of ballet slippers and tutus, I think pink. A little funny, since the first tutu I wore at a recital was orange & lime green with a Mandarin collar and sparkly to the max! Anyway, I thought this pink and white paper from the ODBD Heart & Soul collection would be perfect. I added a white embossed ODBD crochet circle behind the slippers circle. After white embossing it on white, I sponged on the pink inks then die cut it with the matching die. The slippers were colored with Copics and I used my out of the box technique and a smaller circle die to cut it out. I added a die cut ODBD Beautiful Borders die across the bottom and the sentiment was die cut with an ODBD tag die.

The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.

Julie Warner –
I first stamped the trees, masking as I went and I stamped a couple of extra trees, the camper, marshmallows and the Happy Camper sign on another piece to cut out. After coloring everything with Copics, I made a narrow dk red frame for my scene, matted it on a piece of ODBD Rustic Beauty paper collection and added the cut out parts. I used the same out of the box technique on the tops and sides of the trees that are part of the scene in order to slide the red frame underneath. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.
