Balerina Thanks Card and Green Shoe Card

I look at the challenge from Inkspirational and I fell in love with the yellow black and grey color combo...also this card I made, using the Photo Inspiration on that challenge. I took my Die's and started with black and polkadot yellow DP. For the card Base I took my damask stencil and sponged it with grey distress ink.

The Thanks DIE is in silver and it was the last step to finished my card. 

Challenges for my first card are:

1. Inspirational #105: Photo Inkspiration

2. Less Is More: POLKADOTS 

3. My Time To Craft #138: Girlie 


For my second card I use Hero Arts Shoe Stamp (again) :) the sentiment also from Hero Arts.

How I made my card: Sponged the green distress ink on the white card base by using double stencil, The circle Stencil I made by my self and one Chevron Stencil. After that I stamped the Image and colored it with copic marker.

This card can be for a birthday young girl who want to celebrate her birthday party :)

To finished my card I doodle line at the edge of my white cardstock.

Challenges for my card are:

CAS on Sunday #79: Stencil It

Twofers #16: Shoes

AAA Cards Game #61: Stenciling 

Amusing Challenge: Anything Goes

Scrappy Hands Paper-craft Challenges: Mask (I did masking for my circle area)

Digi Designs Challenge Blog: For the Girls 

MFP Stamp Challenge #13: Green 

Thanks for looking and leaving me some love, wishing you happy sunday:)

  18. Great cards Monika, like how you stenciled the background around your shoe!

  19. Two great cards! Your ballerina card is super elegant and perfect for our challenge. Thanks for joining us at Inkspirational!

  20. I haven't seen grey DI before, love the softness of this shade and the damask background is so elegant. Lovely ballerina and frame, the black makes the ballerina really stand out, such great choices for the photo over at Ink.
    So glad to see you joined Twofers with a shoe card, you do shoe cards so well so the theme was perfect for you! Shoe cards are handy,I mean, what woman doesn't love shoes? Love the color of the ink you've used for the chevron stenciling too.

  21. Monika...these are so beautiful. I love that wonderful shoe card, so sassy!

  22. Both of these are winners, for certain. That polka-dotted ballerina gives such a fun twist to an otherwise elegant design! And keep the shoe cards coming! I love them! i bet they are fun to color!

  23. Now that is a shoe any serious shoe collector would be proud of. Your case design really shows it and your creative skills off. I love the doodle edge. thank you so much for joining in with us at Twofers, XOXO

  24. A fun and striking gallery of cards Monika. Love your stiletto shoes and your dotty ballerina is perfect. Thanks so much for playing along at Less is More & AAA Cards this week. Sarah x

  25. Both of your cards are so girlie! The balerina card is so delicate and the shoe card is so cool! I love the circle of chevron the shoe is in! Great job my friend!!

  26. Love how you frame the shoe with stenciling. Clever!

  27. I love the design of your shoe card, Monika, so classy and I love the doodled border. Not sure there's enough white space for our challenge at Less is More but it's a really elegant creation.
    Thanks for sharing with us.

  28. Your green shoe card is adorable! Thank you for sharing with us at MFP Stamps Challenge.

  29. Lovely set of cards again, you are a pro at making shoe cards, I have never made a single shoe card, no shoe stamps yet. Love the first one with the ballerina.

  30. You have been really busy Monica, I think the surround of the ballerina may be a little fussy for a CAS card, but it looks terrifc!
    Thanks so much
    "Less is More"

  31. Thanks for joining us at Scrappy hands. Your card is beautiful and the use of two stencils is awesome!

  32. Love your shoe card and how clever to do the Sstenceling only in the round !!!
    LG hellerlittle

  33. Thanks for sharing your fun card at MFP Challenge :)

  34. Schicker Schuh! Der Stencil passt gut dazu und Deine Ballerina Karte gefaellt mir auch sehr gut!

    1. Wait wait Cornelia, you can speak German too... Where does your talent end!!!

  35. Great tip and two nice cards! Thanks for joining in on my Amusing Challenges this past week - love having you here!

  36. Oh, the damask stencilling works wonderfully with the ballerina, Monika!!!! And I love the idea to use the polka dot paper for her and the oval frame is lovely!!!! Such an elegant and feminine card!!!! And your shoe is super elegant (and very sexy!!!), hey!!!! I would love to have a shoe with such a sweet bow at the back!!!! Great idea to do the stecilling in the circle!!! I love the colours, too!!! A great card, my friend!!!!

  37. I see you have mastered the art of die cuts my friend.. This is so well done!! And your damask background is so soft and pretty.. Nora loved this card... The frame, colors, and layout is just sooo.... sooo.... pretty... Excellent job my friend!!

  38. oops I forgot to comment on the shoe card... Your chevron perfect and makes such a feminine image toned down a bit and also your use of color has the same effect. And speaking of shoes look at that beauty.. I think that be another one of your hallmarks, shoes. Besides stamps do you also collect shoes? And oh yeah I got your amazing shoe die cuts with my absolutely wonderful card!!! LOVE... I will wait for just the right challenge to show them off.. Maybe yours next month? I love my zentangle butterfly card.. I can't stop looking at it!!! Thank you so much my dear!!

  39. Beautifully elegant. Loving the victorian feel.
