Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches CAS

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and heading towards the weekend.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concept. For the next 2 weeks we have a Loads of Lavender challenge. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches Cling Stamp Set . I was inspired by the colors in the photo along with the gingham bow (even though mine isn’t black) for my clean and layered card today.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concept and join us this week to play along with our challenge #153. How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Gray Granite card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the pitcher image from the Stampin’ Up! Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. If this is a set that you like, it will be retiring as of May 3rd. I colored the image in using my Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the leafy image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink above the pitcher and colored the leaves in using my Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I cut the image out using my Scalloped Contours Dies. These are my absolute new favorite dies in case you can’t tell. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the gingham ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it to the pitcher using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the leafy image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the corners of the panel and colored the leaves in using my Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Gray Granite card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leafy image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the envelope front and colored the leaves in using my Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Very Versailles

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? Hope you will be having a productive one.

For today I made a simple stamping card for you. My card uses Stamps, Ink and Paper. I used the Stampin’ Up! Very Versailles Cling Stamp Set for my card. I’ve been wanting to use it for a while, so here’s my card for today.

My colors are from Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #360.

I started with a Basic White card front and stamped the script image from the Very Versailles stamp set in So Saffron Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the leaf image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the card front overlapping the script.

I adhered a panel of Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the card front to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Basic White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Very Versailles stamp set in Highland Heather Ink and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the script image from the Very Versailles stamp set in So Saffron Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaf from the Very Versailles stamp set image on the side of the panel in Pear Pizzazz Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Very Versailles stamp set in Highland Heather Ink in the center of the panel over the script image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Hydrangea Hill DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Happy Thoughts Dragonfly

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers. How is everyone’s weekend going? Did you all remember to turn your clocks ahead? I made sure I did all of mine before retiring last night. I love this time of year, getting up in the daylight and it staying light out later at night. How about you, which time of year do you prefer?

I have a quick card for you today using the Stampin’ Up! Happy Thoughts Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden. Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from Color Throwdown Challenge #633. These colors give me that summer feeling.

I played along with Just Us Girls Trend Week Challenge #575. Use and Embossing Folder.

I also played along with Stampin’ Up! Only Challenges #270. Their Theme is Sky High – anything That Flies.

I started by embossing a Crumb Cake card front using the Dandelion 3D Embossing Folder. On an panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Thoughts stamp set in Basic Gray Ink. I punched the sentiment out using my Label Me Fancy Punch. I punched both sides of the sentiment using the Label Me Fancy Punch again and threaded a length of Seaside Spray 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon through.

I wrapped the ribbon around the card front securing it on the back of the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the card front to a Seaside Spray card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Basic Gray Ink twice. I punched both dragonflies out using my Dragonfly Punch. I colored one of the dragonfly’s wings using my Clear Wink of Stella brush and Seaside Spray Ink (which I put on a clear block). Using my Bone Folder, I fluffed the wings of the colored dragonfly and adhered just the bodies of the dragonflies together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the dragonfly to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to my card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Thoughts stamp set in Basic Gray Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set on the panel in Basic Gray Ink, stamping off once. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Seaside Spray 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 in Basic Gray Ink on the envelope front and the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my CAS card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Cactus Friendship Card

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? Before I get to my card for today, I want to wish my very special fur baby a Happy 13th Birthday. I ordered her a special birthday cupcake from the Hungry Hound (one of my other jobs). She’ll be getting that later tonight after she eats her dinner 😉

This was 2008 when we first got Jasmine. Little girl with big paws.
She used to love laying on the last step watching everything/everyone go by
One of her favorite places to lay during the spring/summer
Her most recent picture in her new bed. She never liked beds till this year

Ok, on to my card for today. I used one of my favorite sets from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog for today’s card the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Cactus Product Medley. I don’t usually purchase the kits, but when I saw this one I just knew I needed it. Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from Fab Friday Challenge #208.

My design is from Just Add Ink Challenge #543.

I also joined in with Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge #358.

I started by cutting 9 rectangles from 2 different panels of the Flowering Cactus Designer Series Paper using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhering them to a Mossy Meadow card front using Multipurpose Liquid glue. I adhered the card front to a Mint Macaron card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

In the Flowering Cactus DSP there is a panel that has all of the cactus and flowers to match up with the Flowering Cactus Dies. I cut everything out since I wasn’t sure what I was planning on using . I cut a panel of Vellum using my Stitched Shapes Dies and adhered it to the center of the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered one of the die cut cactus to the Vellum using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the Highland Heather cactus flowers to the cactus using Glue Dots.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Cactus Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the cactus using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a double bow using the Calypso Coral Linen Thread, that comes in the Flowering Cactus Product Medley, and adhered it using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Cactus stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the smallest cactus from the Flowering Cactus stamp set next to the sentiment in Mossy Meadow Ink and the flowers in Calypso Coral Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic white Medium Envelope. I stamped the smallest cactus from the Flowering Cactus stamp set across the bottom front of the envelope in Mossy Meadow and Calypso Coral Inks. I adhered a panel of the Flowering Cactus DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance CAS Note Card

Good rainy Monday morning my stamping friends, Happy March!! How was everyone’s weekend? It was and still is a bit rainy here, most of our snow has disappeared except for a few piles. It’s suppose to be a little warmer here this week so I’m sure it will all be gone before the end of the week.

Tomorrow is the day a lot of you have been waiting for. The new Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Bouquet will be available to order. Don’t forget the DSP’s are while supplies last. For my card today I used the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Bundle. Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches #474.

My colors are from CAS on Friday Challenge #199.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper card front. I adhered the card front to a panel of Bermuda Bay cardstock (to give a little more stability). I wrapped a piece of 1/2″ White Faux Linen Ribbon from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack around the card front and adhered it in the back using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the card front to a Bermuda Bay card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the butterfly from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Cling Stamp in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the butterfly out using the Brilliant Wings Dies and colored the image in using my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I curved the butterfly wings using my Bone Folder and adhered the butterfly to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the butterfly image from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp in Tuxedo Black Ink on the side of the panel and colored it in using my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basie White panel to a Calypso Coral mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bermuda Bay card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped a butterfly from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp in Tuxedo Black Ink on the front or the envelope and colored it in using my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Butterfly Bijou DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Quick and Easy Card Pack

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s weekend started off? I’ll be at work all day today and tomorrow. Last I heard, we will not be getting snow this weekend, but it’s still early to tell.

Today I have something a little different for you. I don’t have step by step instructions for you since I made a pack of cards. This would make a great gift for someone tied up with some ribbon or put in one of our Acetate Card Boxes and decorated. If you have any questions about any of the cards, please message me and I will explain how I made them. Here are the cards.

I used 1 sheet of the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper and 1 sheet of the Golden Garden Designer Series Acetate to make all 6 cards. I placed the acetate over the DSP, tacked it in a couple places using Glue Dots and cut 4″ X 5 1/4″ panels.

This card I used So Saffron and Poppy Parade cardstock and just did a simple layering. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink and cut it our with the Messages Dies. Adhered it to Hippo and Friends die cut mat and adhered it to the card front.

This card I used Petal Pink and Terracotta Tile cardstock and just did a simple layering. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink and cut it our with the Label Me Fancy Punch and adhered it to the card front. Stamped the large flower from the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set in Petal Pink & Terracotta Tile, stem in Old Olive and cut images out with Floral Gallery Dies.

This card I used Bumblebee and Old Olive cardstock and just did a simple layering. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink, cut it our with the Stitched Nested Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front. Stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set using my Bumblebee and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers and cut image out with Floral Gallery Dies.

This card I used Pool Party and Night of Navy cardstock and just did an angle layering. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink, cut it out with the Floral Gallery Dies and the large sentiment out of Night of Navy cardstock and adhered them to the card front.

This card I used Blushing Bride and Merry Merlot cardstock and just did a simple layering. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink, cut it our with the Stitched Shapes Dies. I cut a scalloped mat from Merry Merlot cardstock using the Layering Ovals Dies, adhered the sentiment and adhered it to the card front.

This card I used Flirty Flamingo and Mossy Meadow cardstock and just did a simple layering. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink, cut it our with the Messages Dies. I cut an oval mat using the Layering Ovals Dies, adhered the sentiment and adhered it to the card front.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card pack and will try it. Happy Stamping!!

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.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Fun Fold

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Is anyone doing anything for the weekend? I’ll be working all weekend at both jobs.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you very much. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card that I made.

I used just about everything from the Stampin’ Up! Sea & Sand Suite for my card. I will explain everything the best I can, but it’s much easier if you watch the video. This card also used the most colors I’ve ever used on a card. To me, there are a lot of colors in the ocean.

I started by adhering a panel of Sea & Sand Designer Series Paper to a Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of Pearlescent Specialty Paper using the largest die from the Seaside Shells Dies. I stamped all the coordinating shells from the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blushing Bride, Highland Heather, Petal Pink, Seaside Spray and So Saffron Inks right on the die cut piece. I embossed the die cut piece using the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder then snipped the shells away from the seaweed using my Paper Snips.

Using the largest die from the Seaside Shells Dies again, I cut a panel of Soft Seafoam cardstock and embossed it using the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the Soft Seafoam die cut/embossed panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the stamped shells, that I snipped, to the Soft Seafoam die cut panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink and cut the panel using the oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies. This part was a little different from my video. On my video I stamped the sentiment on a panel of the Pearlescent Specialty Paper, but the sentiment didn’t show up dark enough so I re- stamped it on Basic White. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Opal Rounds to the card front.

The inside is where the fun fold comes in. I took a piece of Sea & Sand DSP and folded it like an accordion. I adhered the front 2 1/4″ panel to the front inside of the card base using Tear & Tape. I added Tear & Tape to the back 2 1/4″ panel, folded the DSP into the accordion and folded the back of the card base on top of it.

It will look like the above photo from the top.

I took a panel of Sahara Sand cardstock and cut 3 squares from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I embossed them using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. Using the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set and scraps of cardstock I stamped the smallest shell in Pool Party Ink on Pool Party cardstock. I stamped the starfish in Cinnamon Cider Ink on Cinnamon Cider cardstock. I stamped one of the seaweed images in Pear Pizzazz Ink on Pear Pizzazz cardstock and the other seaweed image in Mint Macaron Ink on Mint Macaron cardstock. I stamped the sand dollar image in Sahara Sand Ink on Basic White cardstock. I cut all the images out using the Seaside Shells Dies. I adhered the dies to the squares the way I wanted using Glue Dots then adhered the squares to the folds on the DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, only on half of the square. I stamped the sentiment from Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in the center of a Basic White panel in Sahara Sand Ink. Using the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set I stamped the sand image in Sahara Sand Ink on the bottom of the Basic White panel. I stamped one of the shells in Blushing Bride Ink and the other in Seaside Spray Ink on top of the sand. I adhered the Basic White panel to the back inside of the card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. Using the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set, I stamped the sand image in Sahara Sand across the bottom front of the envelope. I stamped the seaweed image in Pear Pizzazz Ink, one of the shells in Blushing Bride Ink, the other shell in Seaside Spray Ink and the starfish in Cinnamon Cider Ink. I adhered a panel of Sea & Sand DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

You can also view the video on my YouTube channel Here. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Wishes for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Is anyone doing anything for the weekend? I thought I was working all weekend, but to my surprise I’m only working on Sunday.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you very much. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card that I made.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes Bundle for my card along with the Dandy Garden 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.

For the card front I started by stamping the dragonfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Cling Stamp Set on 2 of the corners of a Basic White panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the inside of the wings in Bumblebee Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink a little off centered.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the dandelion image from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I also stamped 2 of the bee images from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the bee in using my Mango Melody and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the dandelion center in Bumblebee Ink, stamping off once and colored the leaves in using my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the images out using the Dandy Wishes Dies. I fussy cut some of the tiny dragonflies from a panel of Dandy Garden DSP using my Paper Snips.

I adhered the cut out dandelion and bee images to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered a couple of the cut out dragonflies to the card front using Glue Dots. I adhered the card front to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Ladybug Trinket to the leaf of the dandelion using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I adhered 2 panels of the Dandy Garden DSP to both sides of the inside card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut 4 stitched squares out of 2 different panels of Dandy Garden DSP using the Stitched Shapes Dies. I cut 4 scalloped squares out of a panel of Mossy Meadow card stock using the Layering Squares Dies. I adhered 2 of the stitched squares to 2 of the Mossy Meadow scalloped squares using Stampin’ Seal. On the 2 lighter stitched DSP squares I stamped the sentiments from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the stamped DSP stitched squares to the other 2 Mossy Meadow scalloped squares using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a 1″ scored strip of Bumblebee cardstock to the center of the inside card base using Tear & Tape. I adhered the squares to the Bumblebee strip using Stampin’ Seal. I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden on a small panel of Basic White cardstock in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the wings in Calypso Coral Ink and cut the dragonfly out using the Dragonfly Punch. I adhered the dragonfly to the darker DSP square using Glue Dots. I adhered the cut out bee to the top of the last square using a Glue Dot. I added a couple more of the tiny fussy cut dragonflies to the darker squares using Glue Dots.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the dandelion from the Garden Wishes stamp set and the dragonfly from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the dragonfly wings in Bumblebee Ink and the center of the dandelion in Bumblebee Ink, stamped off once. I colored the leaves of the dandelion in using my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Dandy Garden DSP to the envelope flap.
