Dragonfly Dreams Extension

Today’s card is an extended card using the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set.

Open up the card and you have dragonflies flying up the card.

The card base is Pool Party.  You will need two pieces of the card stock cut 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.  The Whisper White piece is cut 3 3/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5″ and 10″.  Fold on score lines and add the images inside.  I cut the dragonflies in Island Indigo and stamped the background with Pool Party.

Place the folded card with the 1″ strip on the top facing.  Adhere the larger portion to a piece of the Pool Party card stock.  Add adhesive to the 1″ strip and position the other piece of Pool Party on top, lining it up with the other piece.

I decorated the front of the card with a piece of the Subtles Designer Series Paper Pack.  Add some Whisper White twine and then adhere to the front of the card.  Cut out a circle using the Stitched Shapes framelits.   I stamped the dragonfly onto a piece of Vellum using Island Indigo classic ink and cut out with the framelit.  This piece was layered onto another dragonfly cut with Pool Party card stock.  Adhere to the stitched circle framelit with dimensionals.  Pop up the circle on the front of the card with dimensionals and finish off the card with some rhinestones.

Supplies:

  • Stamps:  Dragonfly Dreams
  • Paper:  Pool Party, Island Indigo, Whisper White, Vellum, Subtles Designer Series Paper Pack
  • Ink:  Pool Party, Island Indigo

Bright Wishes

Two things that I have been wanting to do but hadn’t found the time but made an effort today to do both and finally did it.

I wanted to make a card using the Bright Wishes stamp set and also make a card using the  Polished Stone technique, one of my all time favourite techniques.  I did both and this is the result!


I started with the focal panel first cutting the Glossy White card stock to 3 3/4″ x 5″. I added some Wild Wasabi and Old Olive ink refill on a soaked cotton ball and dabbed it to the lower portion of the panel as I wanted to create a grassy image. I then soaked another cotton ball with alcohol and added Pool Party and Marina Mist ink refill and dabbed it on the upper portion of the panel to create the sky. I then added some Gold Mixative ink refill to a soaked cotton ball and lightly dabbed it on the panel randomly.

I inked up the image with Black Archival ink and stamped onto the panel and added the sentiment from Happy Birthday Gorgeous to the bottom of the panel. I then adhered it to a piece of 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ Black card stock and then onto the card base of Marina Mist cut 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″.

Thanks for stopping by on another beautiful day and happy stamping!

Stamp Club Swaps

We had a fun day of stamping yesterday at our monthly stamp club and one of the best part s was the card swapping.  They are such talented stampers and I had to share their lovely creations with you.

Paulette used the Wetlands stamp set (gone after today!) for her swap.  I love the way she used a clear block to apply the color for the background.

Janet used the Lift Me Up stamp set and the Sale-A-Bration Carried Away DSP.  I love how she cut the DSP in the curved shapes.

This is Carole’s beautiful card in Sahara Sand  (one of her favourite color card stocks), Black and White to make this very detailed card.  She used the Flourish Framelits and Floral affection Textured Impressions Embossing Folders.

This is Tracy’s beautiful delicate card.  She used the So Detailed Thinlits (gone after today!) in Sweet Sugarplum card stock paired with the Blooms and Bliss DSP (gone after today!)

Brenda’s card reflected the beautiful weather we had on Monday – it was so hot it would have been nice to have been on the beach!  I love the detail in the shaker portion of the card.

I love the classic elegance of Roseanne’s card.  She used the leaf framelit from the Stylish Stems framelits and cut it out on the Whisper White card stock and backed it with the green card stock.  She cut the flower also from the Stylish Stems framelits and adered it to the Whisper White layer.

Thanks ladies for all your beautiful creations!

Lift Me Up, Up and Away

Yesterday I shared a moving Tasty Truck and when I received the Lift Me Up bundle, I set out to make this card with the balloon going up, up and away!

Here we go!

And into the clouds!

Had fun making this card and hope you are enjoying it!  I used the Sale-A-Bration Carried Away Designer Series Paper for the card, choosing one of the plainer designs for the card.  It’s fabulous paper and will have to get another package or two before Sale-A-Bration ends at the end of the month!

2017 Occasions Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration – a Dragonfly Daydreams Card

20161007_occ17-cover_en-us

CLICK HERE for the Occasions Catalogue

sab_2017_usCLICK HERE for the Sale-A-Bration brochure

The new Occasions Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration is now in full operation!   Once a year we have Sale–A-Bration, the best stamping time of the year, where you can earn an exclusive product with a purchase (not including taxes and shipping) at no charge!

I believe that the Dragonfly Dreams bundle will the be one of the very popular bundles in the Occasions Catalogue – but then there are so many fantastic bundles!!!

I thought I’d go back into the archives and use an old technique that is very versatile.  It’s the shaving cream technique (and I still have the original can of shaving cream that I purchased many, many years ago!).

I cut some Whisper White card stock (5 1/4″ x 4″) and spread out a piece of wax paper.  I sprayed some shaving cream onto the wax paper and then add several drops of Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight and Pink Piroutte reinkers onto the shaving cream and then used a wooden stir stix to run it through the shaving cream and swirled it around.

shaving-creamI placed the Whisper White card stock on top of the shaving cream and pressed it lightly to pick up the shaving cream.  Using a chop stick, I then scraped off the excess.  There was so much shaving cream I was able to do two (actually I could have done abut half a dozen).

shaving-cream-samplesI trimmed the bottom piece down to 5″ x 3 3/4″ and then put it together for this card.

dragonfly-dreams-shaving-creamThe card base is Rich Razzleberry with a layer of Pink Pirouette.  I cut the dragonflies using Rich Razzleberry using Rich Razzleberry card stock and adhered it to the front of the card.  The sentiment from the set is stamped using Rich Razzleberry classic ink.  I added some shimmer onto the dragonflies with the clear Wink of Stella brush.

I have cut out more dragonflies on the other piece and will use it for some other cards.
