Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Inspiration

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s week going? We’re halfway through and on the downhill to the weekend.

Today’s card was a sketch/color challenge from my Upline Jaimie Babarczy. She’s given us a sketch and colors to work with each week for the past month. Here is my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Bundle for my card along with the Dandy Garden 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper. Here is our sketch and colors for the week.

I started by embossing the bottom of a Mossy Meadow card front using the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of the Dandy Garden DSP to the top of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of the Blushing Bride Bakers Twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack around the card front and tied a bow.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink twice. One of the dragonflies I stamped the wing fill image in Blushing Bride Ink, stamping off once. I added Clear Wink of Stella to the wings. The other dragonfly image I decided to color the wings using the Clear Wink of Stella and Blushing Bride Ink that I put on a Clear Block. Can you tell which is which??? I punched the dragonflies out using the Dragonflies Punch and adhered them to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink. I adhered the sentiment to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Mossy Meadow card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Clear Epoxy Droplets to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set on 2 corners of a Basic White panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the dragonflies in using my Clear Wink of Stella and Blushing Bride Ink on a Clear Block. I stamped the sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Bumblebee mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set twice in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored them in using my Clear Wink of Stella and Blushing Bride Ink. I adhered a panel of Dandy Garden DSP to the envelope flap.
