Dragon Fly Dreams

I wanted to start doing some single layer simple stamping so I decided to stamp like a butterfly and sting like a bee using the Dragon Fly Dreams #142924 stamp set from Stampin Up.  After I did the first card, I decided to step it up and add the layers an embellishments!

Bee Mine

2018_02_14IMG_2982 Happy Valentine’s Day.  For today’s card which is my favorite Valentine card I made this year It’s always fun to send punny Valentines and this one is no exception. I made an eclipse style card using the Large Letters Framelits #141712 and the Bubbles and Fizz DSP #147244 from the  Stampin Up Sale-A-Bration catalog. The Bubbles and Fizz DSP is one of many free items you can earn during the Stampin Up annual Sale-A-Bration campaign ongoing now thru March 31st.

To achieve the Eclipse look I cut several layers of letters in black and 1 layer from the Bubbles and Fizz DSP and then stacked them and placed them back in the spot on the card front.  It sounds more confusing than it is.  I then stamped the bees using the Dragonfly Dreams #142924 stamp set and cut them out using the coordinating Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits #142749.  I looked thru all my stamps and found the “Mine” in the now retired Crazy Mixed Up Love stamp set and hand cut a banner to place over a punched heart.  Hope your day is filled with love, flowers and chocolates!

Climbing Orchids

2018_01_23IMG_0648 Today’s post is absolutely stunning and uses quite a few products from the Stampin Up annual catalog.  Cammie wanted to make a great impression so she started off by texturing the base layer with the Stampin Up Layered Leaves #143704 Dynamic Embossing Folder.  Cammie built her delicate orchids using Climbing Orchids #143723 stamp set, the coordinating Orchid Builder Framelits #143747 and painted the petals with an Aqua painter to add color to the petals.  The flowers were assembled and placed on a stem cut from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits #143751.  Cammie finished the card using a sentiment from the Dragonfly Dreams #142924 stampset.

Dragonfly Dreams


Today’s post features the all new Dragonfly Dreams # 142924 stamp set from the Stampin Up Occasions catalog. This is a Two-Step Stampin’ set. Combine individual stamps to create the final image you want in the colors you want. This stamp set also coordinates with the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits #142749.  Cammie brayered and sponged her background and then it into 4 pieces and matted on black cardstock.  “Stamp like a dragonfly, sting like a bee.” It’s almost the same as Muhammad Ali’s motto, but much craftier.
