{TSG} Amalia Ballerina and Poppy







This month we have two new sets from Megan Suarez: Amalia Ballerina and Poppy. I just LOVE Megan’s style, and we hope you do too! Amalia is the sweetest dancer, and Poppy is the newest of our Spice Girls.



First up is my card using Amalia Ballerina. She is coloured with Copics, and I added spica pens for some subtle glitter. I added a bow with sheer white ribbon with glittery edges to keep in line with the tutu. Some SU rhinestones and silver CS add more bling. The sentiment was added onto a MFT Fishtail Flag STAX die.



Here you can see a bit more of that sparkly sheen that Spica pens provide.



Next I made a card featuring Miss Poppy! She reminds me of Princess Leia from Star Wars with her big side buns ;) She is also coloured with Copic markers. I added more SU rhinestones to her hair bows and outfit, as well as spica pens.


I used the layout from this week's Retro Sketch challenge #64, which my friend and fellow Trendsetter, Danielle, designed! Danielle is a master at sketches! Just this past February when I had the pleasure of meeting Danielle (and eating her cookies, nom nom) she whipped up a cute sketch for me in a matter of seconds when I was stumped on a card layout! I love the sketch she came up with this week and I can see using it over and over! LOVE the polaroid element and the flag strip tucked in!
I used MFT dies for this card (Polaroid, Fishtail Flags STAX, Circle STAX 1 and 2)




Poppy is a 3x4 set that includes a total of 5 stamps and will sell for $9.00.
Amalia Ballerina is a 3x4 set that includes a total of 3 stamps, and will sell for $9.00.

Both sets will be available on Saturday, May 25th at 11pmEST.
