MFT April Hop and Shop

Welcome to the My Favorite Things April Hop and Shop! If you just happened upon my blog and want to start at the beginning just hop on over to Kim's blog. If you came here from Jody's blog you are in the right place.

Tonight I am working with the stamp set Sweet Spring Jolinne! I made a little room decoration for a little girl I know who loves to dance!

I stamped the images in Memento Black Ink and colored with copics. The skirt on the dancer and the bunny are paper pieced. On the skirt for the dancer I added a small ruffled ribbon before I glued it down. The sentiment is included in the set.

To make the banner at the top I used chipboard pieces and glitter letters that I colored with Copics to match the project. The project is mounted on a 8x8 piece of chipboard. I added some machine stitching, ribbon tied with a button and twine, more of the ruffled ribbon and a border punch.

Here is a close up of the stamp. You can shop for this sweet stamp set and all the new releases HERE.

Now it is time to hop on over to the next blog on the hop. Next up is our Guest Designer for April, a very talented stamper, a sweet person, and my friend, Kerry!

TFL,
Melody

  8. Oh man, this makes me wish my daughter was still a little tiny ballerina! She's moved onto the "tween / teen" stage...how come no one ever warns us moms about that part. (sigh)

    My favorite thing has to be the ruffle on her skirt. So smart and perfect for this gorgeous project!

    So glad I hopped along!
