Hi everyone! Denise here with some fun Ballerina projects for you. Actually, I started out making a Halloween card and the little Ballerina in the Goose Bumps kit was so stinkin’ cute that I ended up making an additional door hanger for my daughter. I love it when a Halloween kit can be used in different ways. :) There are some scrapbooking materials used for both projects, I included a product photo towards the end of the post. Here’s the girlie Halloween card.
The Ballerina card is 5″ x 5″ folded. To start I opened the Goose Bumps paisley background in Photoshop and changed the Canvas to 10″ x 5″. The green polka dot paper was masked with a scalloped circle from the Scallops, Shapes and More. The frame was added and tilted and an additional purple paper added behind the frame. The Trick or Treat tab was tucked behind the frame. The Ballerina and star stamp were added above the frame. Instead of using Drop Shadow in the Layer Style, I used Outer Glow adjusting the color and spread to what is normally used for drop shadows. This will add a nice shadow all the way around the scallop, frame and Ballerina. After the card is flattened and printed, trim and ink all the edges and fold. Purple Stickles were used to add touches of glitter and crystal stars glued to the card.
My daughter saw the card and loved the little Ballerina. I created this door hanger for her.
To make the crown, I had a Maya Road Crown and was able to open their PDF template in Photoshop. I used their template to mask the Goose Bumps paisley paper. Using the Polygonal Lasso Tool (L) in Photoshop, I created a smaller shape for the solid purple paper and added an Outer Glow. The Ballerina was sized and the star stamp and quote were added to the crown. The crown, stars and quote were printed as one piece with the Ballerina separate. Once the items are printed, trim and ink the edges, purple for the crown and black for the Ballerina. Q-tips help get the ink into all the little corners. The crown was glued to the painted Maya Road crown. Using big pop-dots, attach the Ballerina. Stickles and bling were added to the crown and Ballerina. To finish punch holes on the sides for the ribbon to hang.
Here are some of the items used to add finishing touches to the project. The Darice hearts are 9mm and the Stickles color used is Lavendar.
Happy Scrapping and Playing everyone! :)
