Dragonfly Dreams Card Set

Dragonfly Dreams Card Set

I had temporarily lost my Dragonfly Dreams dies on my desk after the last time I had used them. So I decided that the simplest way was to clear my desk. Whilst doing this I found lots of scrap DSP and Very Vanilla card stock. I did find my dies too!

Voila!

I then had a light bulb moment….team the Dragonfly Dreams and the scrap card stock to make a set of cute Thank You cards!

The DSP is scrap from the Sweet Soiree Speciality DSP. I then die cut the dragoflies in Silver card stock and used the amazing Stitched Shapes Framelits to die cut the DSP and Very Vanilla card stock.

I hope I get inspired like this more often as these made a super cute gift for a friend of mine when teamed with  envelopes, a lovely pen and a ribbon to tie everything together!

Fresh Dragonfly Dreams

Fresh Dragonfly Dreams

I was trawling Pinterest a few weeks ago – don’t we all do that? or is it just me? and found a wonderful card by this lady Laurie Jennings LINK HERE.

I loved her card but wanted to try and make it my own.

Instead of the lovely soft pinks that Laurie used I chose to go with spring greens.

It is such a wonderful design that Laurie came up with and I thank her for the inspiration.

Dragonfly Dreams in Springtime

Dragonfly Dreams From Stampin’ Up!

Spring is heading our way and swiftly following that will be Summer which always makes me think of Dragonfly’s. Specifically, Stampin’ Up!s Dragonfly Dreams.

How is the Card Made

This card is made with the wonderful Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Dreams thinlits. First of all, I die cut the interlinked dragonflies and daubed over it onto the Bundle of Love DSP with Stampin’ Up! Pool Party ink to give a shadow effect.

Next, I Die cut the word LOVELY out of the Myths & Magic 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) Glimmer Paper.

The large Dragonfly is die cut from Whisper White card then coated in Versamark before being heat embossed with Clear embossing powder mixed with Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter. I have used Bundle of Love Speciality DSP on the front of the card and in addition on the ‘inside’ and again I have daubed it with Pool Party ink then finished the whole card with Shimmer Ribbon in Pool Party.

This card turned out really well because I have lots of friends with Summer Birthdays and so I will be making it again in a couple of different colourways! But most of all, I love that I dont have to work too hard to to match and coordinate all the items I have used.

I hope you like this and remember that you can order the products from my online shop – Stampin’ Up will deliver your items directly to you!
