Established Elegance

I've been wanting this stamp set for a while, and my darling girls bought it for my birthday. 

What a surprise!  Yes, they were clever and called my friend Tracy, also a Stampin' Up! demo and ordered it with her.  How sweet is that?!

Anyway, I started to play with it yesterday after my friend Susie sent me a picture of the dress form with a cute punched out dress on it.  I didn't keep the original so can't remember where it came from, but here's what I made:

You may know that I'm having an affair with the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper in the current Sale-a-Bration promotion.  So this card got the full treatment too!   I've used the 2 3/8" scallop circle punch to make the skirt.    I'm working on a video to show you how to make it - check back soon!   The bodice is made with the largest heart in the heart to heart punch.  I've wrapped the waist with ribbon - yep, from the SAB freebies as well.
There's a couple of sneaky peaky products from the upcoming mini on this card too.  Can you see them........sssshhhhhh!  But I'm not naming them, you'll have to guess and wait a couple of weeks to see if you're right!

The card base is Pear Pizzazz with a band of Calypso Coral over the top.   I am lovin' these colours together.    Anyway, dinner time!   Off you go.  Have a nice evening!

  1. Karen, this is so gorgeous and such a fabulous idea.
    I have been thinking how to drape or paperpiece some fabric on the manikin... but this is much better. Love the DSP and extras!


I love reading your comments. Thank you for stopping by.
