Party Girl & Polka Dots | RECIPE

Just how adorable is this Party Girl in her little black, paper-pieced dress? So cute! Which is why I can’t wait to share all of the creative details with you.

CC4212 - Party Girl Stamp Set

I began with week with this off-the-top-of-my-head creation that mixes Stamping, Coloring and (the dreaded) ‘fussy cutting’ Technique to create something simple-ish. It’s really not that hard, especially if you enjoy fussy cutting, like I do.

For those of you that don’t know what ‘fussy cutting’ is, it’s the simple act of cutting around an image with a pair of scissors. In this case, we will be cutting around some features of the Party Girl along with her Cat.

Pre Party Girl
  1. Adhere the Black Cardstock to the White Card Base.

  3. Stamp the Party Girl onto the 2.75″ x 5.25″ Vanilla Cream Cardstock using Intense Black Ink. Trim.
  4. Use a TriBlend Marker to color the Skin of the girl. I used Fair Skin Blend – light.
  5. Stamp the Party Dress onto the Polka Dot paper and trim as close to the line as possible. Adhere to the girl.
  6. Using Intense Black Ink, stamp the Hair and the Shoes onto the 1″ x 2″ Sundance Cardstock. Trim as close to the line as possible. Adhere to the girl.
  7. Use the Coral Shades – Dark TriBlend Marker to color the Belt, Ribbon and underside of the Shoes.
  8. Using a scrap piece of French Vanilla CS, stamp the drink. Color as shown and adhere to the underside of the hand.
  9. Stamp ‘Celebrate’ onto the .75″ x 2.25″ piece of French Vanilla Cardstock. Adhere to the 7/8″ x 2.5″ piece of Sundance Cardstock, before adhering to the card.
  10. Use 3D Foam Dots to attach the Party Girl to the front of the card.
  11. Stamp the Cat onto a 1.5″ x 1.5″ piece of Sundance Cardstock. Trim. Adhere to the card after coloring the bow with the Coral Shades – Dark TriBlend Marker. I also used a touch of Jade Green – Dark to color the eyes of the cat.
  12. Add (5) Bitty Sparkles to the hair, hand and around the glass.
