DRAGONFLY GARDEN

08.23.21 Dragonfly orange openDragonfly Garden features – DRAGONFLIES!  This colorful Z-fold card is perfect for so many occasions and would be a great card for a guy.  The Dandy Garden DSP was one of the DSP patterns on sale in October.  The stamp set features dragonflies, a narrow grouping of wildflowers and several sentiments.  The bundle includes a dragonfly punch which gives you the large and small dragonflies seen here.

08.23.21 Dragonfly orange cardThe closed card image shows the rhinestones embellishing the large and small dragonflies.  The colors used are Calypso Coral, Blackberry Bliss and Bumblebee.  If you look closely, you may spot a ladybug on a leaf.  The deckle-edged card stock is die-cut from a Sizzix set.  The rough edges are the perfect texture for this card.

08.23.21 Dragonfly blackberry openThe second sample features a larger Blackberry Bliss dragonfly on the card front.  Black rhinestones are used as embellishments instead of the clear ones used above.  You can see the ladybug climbing up the card front.  Stampin’ Blends and Stampin’ Write Markers are used for the coloring of the flowers and the dragonflies.

Mark your calendars now for October Stamp Camp.  We will have a cute Halloween card, some leaves, and the Christmas card will feature Sweet Little Stockings with dogs, cats and chipmunks!  October 7, 8 and 9.

Again, please let me know as soon as you can what day you plan on coming and which cards you would like to make.  And if you will be unable to come and need a kit – or if you will need to leave early and need a partial kit – please let me know now.  Advanced notice makes the preparation of kits handleable.

Blessings,

You’re Inspiring

02.19.18 Daffodils 2I love the daffodils from the You’re Inspiring Stamp Set.  The flowers have been stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento and colored with the new Stampin’ Blends in light and dark Calypso Coral, light and dark Daffodil Delight and light Old Olive.  The blends are so much fun to use!  And I love the blends color remover that can touch up the little bits of ink that jump outside the border of your image.  The white frame is edged in Daffodil Delight scallops and layered onto dry embossed Calypso Coral and then onto Whisper White and the daffodil card.   The Easter sentiment is stamped on white, die cut in an oval shape and layered onto a Daffodil Delight die cut scalloped oval.  This set also features a smaller row of daffodils that I stamped and colored both inside the card and on the envelope.  On the second sample of this card, I used a Happy Birthday sentiment and message. 

The month of February with my 20% product discount would be a great time to pick up the Stampin’ Blends and also take advantage of the Sale-A-Brations promotion.  You can see the blends on page 31 of the Occasions Catalog.  You can also view them at Stampin’ Blends.

This is project 2 for our March Stamp Camp.  Blog Post 3 will come out sometime tomorrow and will feature double time stamping and Heartfelt Blooms.  See you then,
