Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Sneak Peek

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Are you ready for a new week? I’ve got another busy working week ahead.

I have a sneak peek for you today. Are you ready? I’ve told you about our OnStage events that we go to twice a year. Well this years is going to be a little different because of Covid. We’ll be attending it virtually. Since I was registered for OnStage I got to order a bundle that won’t be available until the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. It’s called the Dandy Garden Project Collection. I ordered mine last week and got to play with it this weekend. Here’s my 1st card I made with it.

I’ll try to give you a few more sneak peeks this week.

I started by adhering a panel of the Dandy Garden 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper (available January 5, 2021) to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Bumblebee cardstock I stamped the tiny dragonfly image from the Stampin’ Up Dragonfly Garden Cling Stamp Set in Bumblebee Ink multiple times.

I adhered the Bumblebee panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered a Mossy Meadow panel to the center of the Bumblebee panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I embossed a small panel of Whisper White cardstock using my Dandelion 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Dandy Garden DSP mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered it to the top of the Mossy Meadow panel on an angle using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a panel of Smoky Slate cardstock I stamped one of the dragonfly images from the
Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink and cut the image out using my Dragonflies Punch. I brushed the wings of the dragonfly using Clear Wink of Stella and adhered it to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink. I cut the strip into a banner using my Banner Pick A Punch and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Ladybug Trinket to the banner using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the tiny dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Bumblebee Ink above and below the sentiment. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Bumblebee mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the tiny dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Bumblebee Ink across the bottom front of the envelope.

I adhered a panel of the Dandy Garden 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card. All items used for today’s card will be available starting January 5, 2021 from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. I’ll try to have a few more sneak peeks for you in the next couple weeks. Happy Stamping!!
