Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? I hope you had enjoyable one and were able to find some time for yourself.
Today’s card is one that we’re making at my card class tonight. This is the 1st class in over a year that I’m having. I’m really hoping this will be the 1st of many monthly classes again. I used the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes Cling Stamp Set for my card. My card is similar to one a did a while back, one of the ladies coming asked about making it. Here’s my card for today.
My colors are from CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #414.
I started by adhering a Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper card front to a Bumblebee card base using Stampin’ Seal.
I embossed a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock using the Dandelion 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the wing fill image in Merry Merlot Ink and I punched the dragonfly out using the Dragonflies Punch. I stamped the sentiment from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the same panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the small dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Bumblebee Ink over the sentiment and punched it out using the Double Oval Punch. I punched the scalloped oval from the panel of Basic White cardstock using the Double Oval Punch. I adhered the sentiment oval to the scalloped oval using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered a length of 1/4″ Bumblebee Ribbon to the card front adhering it with a small amount of Stampin’ Seal in a ‘Z’ form and adhered the sentiment over the top using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Ladybug Trinket to the sentiment using a Glue Dot. I brushed the wings of the dragonfly with some Clear Wink of Stella and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Garden Wishes stamp set in the center of a Basic White panel using Mossy Meadow Ink. I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Bumblebee Ink on the top and bottom corners of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bumblebee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the dragonfly from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set on the envelope front and adhered a panel of the Dandy Garden DSP to the envelope flap.
