Winged Bodice Card

Hi Chris here sharing this card using Sin City Stamps Anime Faireis #2 and Vintage Fashion Stamp sets.

Supplies used:
Sin City Stamps:  Sin City Stamps Anime Faireis #2Vintage Fashion
Cardstock: Kraft, White, Core'dinations Kraft Core
Embossing Folder: Tim Holtz
Bodice Template:
Ink: Tim Holtz Distess Ink (fired Brick), Staz-on
Adhesives: ATG, Quickie Glue Pen
Glitter: Wow
Punch: Kreaxions/Just Imagine #920
Other: Sequin ribbon, gem, Vellum

To create this card's background,  I started with Core'dinations Kraft core card stock and used a Tim Holtz Embossing folder.  I sanded the background piece to bring out the Kraft Core.  I added a punched border using one of my Kreaxion punches (# 920).

I then traced a bodice template from  Sin City has lots of bodice stamps that would look great on this card.  I then stamped multiple partial images of the umbrella from the Vintage Fashion Set.

I then cut out the images and added to the bodice for a lace ruffly look.

 I then added some sequin ribbon to the center of the dress for a belt.  I added a red gemstone to the center of the ribbon.

 To create the wings I stamped the wings from the Anime Fairies 2 onto vellum with Staz-on and then fussy cut out the wings.  I used my Quickie Glue Pen to add glue to parts of the wings and then added red glitter and then I attached the bodice to the card.


  1. Aren't you clever using the umbrella as a dress! I really enjoyed looking at the pictures and thinking I would never have know that it was an umbrella stamp! I love finding other ways to use a stamp!

  2. I think that is totally awesome how you substituted the intended use for the stamp to create some TOTALLY different!! I am definitely inspired!! :) Great job!!

  3. i love this idea, thanks for sharing

  4. Fabulous idea using the umbrella for a lacy dress. TFS your clever idea.


Thank you!
