Stampin’ Up Dragonfly Dreams

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  Has anyone made any fun plans for the weekend?  It’s supposed to be a nice weekend here by me.  More like spring weather.

For today’s card I pulled out a set I haven’t used in a while, the Stampin’ Up Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set.  Take a look.

I’ve combined 2 different challenges with my card today.  The Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #310.  Here is their sketch.

I also joined in with the Fab Friday #160 color challenge.  Here are their beautiful color combo.

I started with a Highland Heather card front and stamped 2 dragonflies from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set in Versamark Ink.  I sprinkled them with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set them with my Heat Tool.  I adhered the card front to a Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Big Shot, I cut out 2 of the largest dies from the Flourish Thinlits from a piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set on a strip of Whisper White cardstock in Bermuda Bay ink.

I adhered a panel of Flirty Flamingo Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Snail.   I adhered 2 pieces of the die cut to the sentiment strip using Snail, then adhered it to the matted DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted DSP  to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.  I colored one Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewel in using my Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend Marker and adhered it to the sentiment strip.

On the inside on a Whisper White panel I stamped the dragonfly from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set in Highland Heather Ink in the center.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped a couple of dragonflies from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of Flirty Flamingo Brights 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend.  Happy Stamping!!
