Hello Gorgeous!!!!!

Hello everyone: I've been busy this morning making some cards to post on my blog, I took a little brake last week to recharge my Mojo and clean my craft room, which is a never ending task. It's not totally horrible but, sometimes I don't put away stuff I used for one project before I start bringing other stuff for another project and.....well, you know how this song goes.
But anyway, I have a card to share with you today to participate in the Mojo Monday #430 sketch challenge and on the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge, with a theme of GIRLY. Here is my card.

I haven't used this adorable set of retired SU dies in a long time so, when I saw the theme at the Curtain Call challenge, this cute dresses came to my mind. There is a mix of many different things here, all of them sadly retired but non the less, lovely.
The dress die is from Stampin Up!, the beautiful floral DSP is from Lily of the Valley, the sentiment is from a retired Flourishes stamp set, the button is also from SU. The only item that is not retired is the scalloped circle and this is from a Sizzix Framelits die set I had for a long time.
The sentiment is stamped on vellum with SU Strawberry Slush and heat embossed with clear embossing powder to prevent it from smearing.
I love making the little jacket for this dress, so darn cute.
The ''buttons'' and ''Peridot'' are from my stash.
Here is a picture of the finished inside. I'm so glad I made this resolution, all my cards are ready to be mailed, woo hoo!!
The sentiment is from Flourishes, stamped with Strawberry Slush and the Scalloped Oval is from Sizzix. Here are the banners that inspired this card.

Thank you so much for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

  1. Adorable! I absolutely LOVE this Maria. I still have that die and have never ever used it. What a shame. I know I'll hang on to it, so there's hope for me yet. I hear you on cleaning the craft room. I've been doing that for a month, and I'm still not done. I keep my SU things separate from everyone else's products I must have, because I'm a demo and do monthly card classes. It's getting to the point where I need another room. Since that's not going to happen, guess I'll have to purge...AGAIN. Love your post today. Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs.

    1. Thank you Bobbi, this beautiful die set was also a bit neglected by me but no more!! the good thing is that you can cut the dresses with any DSP and they will always look fabulous. Now, go into your craft room and start creating.

    1. I do remember that Sonny, since then, I used all the dresses you sent me, this die set is just so pretty. I always like to make the little jacket, it's the perfect size for the small pearl "buttons".
