We all have our favourite go-to stamp sets, papers, colours and embellishments that we use all the time.  But do you ever find a hidden gem in the catalogue that you had previously not noticed? Well, this project contains one of those hidden gems – Pick a Pennant Stamp Set with an alphabet (small size stamps), two different pennants and some cute images.  It can be found on p 173 of the Annual Catalogue.  I was lucky enough to receive this stamp set as part of OnStage (think convention).

Earlier this week, I needed to create a handmade ballet themed framed art piece for my four-year-old niece’s birthday.  Of course, it had to be cute with an inspirational message.

Ketty’s Ballet Frame

How cute is this?  I used the Pick a Pennant Stamp Set in both top corners.  The Stamparatus made it very easy for perfect placement of both the banners and the letters within the banners.  I used the sponge brayer to create the ombre background (Powder Pink, Flirty Flamingo and Blushing Bride).  I used a retired textured cardstock to create a little more interest.

The ballet silhouettes (non-Stampin’ Up!) were created using an e-cutter as Stampin’ Up! have no ballet images in the current catalogue.  Note to Stampin’ Up!, can we have some cute ballet images next catalogue.

But I still had to add that inspirational message.  So I scoured my stamp sets and found the perfect one – from Rooted in Nature Stamp Set BE HAPPY, BE STRONG, BE YOU! which I placed under each of the sections. Ketty has attitude which made it just right.

And of course we need a matching birthday card.  I used the birthday sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set.
