Dance to the Music - Part Deux!

As promised yesterday I'm sharing more of the design possibilities I envisaged for my premier plate of stamp designs :)
....sorry this is in a digital format but the "hot off the press" rubber has not made it to me yet!

You will be the very first to have it if you are going to the Big Scrapbooking and Stamp Show today at Ally Pally!
Not only are there ballerina images on the plate but I've also included extra bodice tops for them one solid to stamp in a different colour and perhaps add your own wording on top and one with different writing so it's possible to mix and match ;)

I do like to get mileage out of my stamps ;) ;)
I got rubber!!

Did I mention I also designed a dance themed dictionary background? So useful for lots of projects not just to go with the ballerina. ;)

All cut out and ready to stamp....see all those stamps you get? Lots of words too ;)

Just a few quick tips I thought I'd share.....the ballet dancer is easy to cut out but when you start wanting to cut her out of thicker stuff like grungeboard it might be a plan to cut out to this point

....then cut up the side of her leg marked 1

...then cut the other side marked 2
....complete the cut on the other leg marked 3 ;)

The wings have been designed to use on both the small and large ballerina ;)

Same wings but on the small ballerina they are over sized.
...think the enigmatic Angel in Barbarella! ;)

Can't be bothered to get out the stamp positioner? Stamp and mask the ballerina...lay the wing stamps over where you want them...put your acrylic block over.

..pick and stamp!

Well..............I got to fly!! :)
But see you tomorrow :)

I'm soooooo looking forward to seeing your ideas with this stamp set...I just know you can come up with some fabulicious ones!!!  ;)

If you are going to Ally Pally don't forget to pop along and see Jennie from The Artistic Stamper and of course Hels who will both be doing demo magic on the stand.
Now can't make it...just make sure you pop over to Jennie's blog as some of the new stamps are being revealed and given away by the ever generous Jennie.

There are new Mabel Lucy Atwell images...
...gorgeous additions to the Steampunk range and soooooo much more ;)
Just leave a comment and one of the "hot off the press" designs could be yours! ;)
