Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. I hope everyone is having a wonderful week.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is How Does Your Garden Grow. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Cling Stamp Set and Heart & Home Designer Series paper for my Free Style Collage Card. I was inspired by the beautiful flowers and colors from the inspiration photo.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #174.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by adhering a panel of Heart & Home DSP to a Basic White Thick card base. I stamped the daisy image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. Using my Blending Brush, I added Tahitian Tide Ink (available May 3rd) on the Basic White panel around the stamped image. I colored the image using my Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the panel using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the foxglove flower and bumblebee images from the Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home Stamp Set 3 times in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the images out with the coordinating from the Honeybee Blooms Dies. I colored the images in using my Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. On the panel of Basic White cardstock, using my Blending Brush I added Orchid Oasis Ink (available May 3rd). I cut one of the stand alone dies from the Honeybee Blooms Dies twice from the inked area. I cut the other stand alone die from the Honeybee Blooms Dies from a panel of Orchid Oasis cardstock (available may 3rd) twice. I cut 3 of the grass dies from the Honeybee Blooms Dies from a panel of Old Olive cardstock.

I arranged all the die-cut pieces on the stamped panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the flowers and grass die cuts with Stampin’ Dimensionals, Glue Dots and Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of the 2022-2024 In-Color Baker’s Twine (available May 3rd) around the panel twice and tied a bow. I adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Pebbles Enamel Shapes along the bottom of the panel.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower and bumblebee images from the Honeybee Home stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the panel and colored them using my Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Honeybee Home stamp set on the envelope front and colored it using my Melon Mambo and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Heart & Home 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! Daisy Garden

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on the downhill to the weekend. Is anyone starting to make plans?

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

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Daisy Garden Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Cling Stamp Set for Spotlight Technique card. I was inspired by the cheerful flowers and colors along with the beehive in the inspiration photo.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concept and join us this week to play along with our challenge #155. How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by stamping the daisy image from the Daisy Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I picked a spot in the center of the photo and cut it out using my Layering Circles Dies. I adhered the Basic White panel (without the center circle) to a Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I colored just the circle I cut our using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Pool Party and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the circle to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals making sure to line up the flowers and leaves.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Tasteful Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered a length of the Gold Simply Elegant Trim to the card front using a Glue Dot and adhered one of the Bumblebee Trinkets to the end of it on a flower using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the wildflower image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the side of the panel and colored it in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Highland Heather card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card I stamped the wildflower image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set on a Basic White Medium Envelope front and envelope flap. I colored the images in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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

Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Wishes

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.

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

Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Tag Card

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s weekend started off? I’m at work today and it’s expected to be a busy one. Anytime you give free stuff away it’s busy.

Today’s card is one we made at our team meeting Sunday. This one was actually a tag designed by one of our brilliant team members Mary Deatherage. I turned the tag into a card. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Cling Stamp Set, the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Bundle.

I started by embossing a Misty Moonlight card front using the Brick and Mortar 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Basic White mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the matted panel to a Just Jade card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the wildflower image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Just Jade Ink, stamping off once, in the center of the panel. I stamped the sentiment from the So Sentimental stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink towards the bottom of the panel over the wildflower image. I cut the top of the panel using my Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. I threaded a piece of 1/4″ Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color Ribbon through the top of the tag and using a piece of Misty Moonlight/Silver twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack I tied a bow around the ribbon to secure it.

I stamped the butterfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I colored the butterfly in using my Mint Macaron and Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Brilliant Wings Dies. I cut a detailed butterfly using my Brilliant Wings Dies from a panel of Vellum cardstock and adhered just the body of the vellum butterfly to the body of the stamped butterfly using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the butterfly to the tag using Glue Dots. I adhered the tag to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added 6 Metallic Pearls to the butterfly body.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the wildflower image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Just Jade Ink, stamping off once, on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Just Jade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the wildflower image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Just Jade Ink on either side of the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my tag 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! Dragonfly Garden Hello for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Color Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. I used the new Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Cling Stamp and the Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes Bundle along with the Dandy Garden 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper. Here’s my card using this weeks colors.

I played along with the Paper Players Theme Challenge #531 this week.

Here are the colors we had for our challenge this week.

I started by adhering a Dandy Garden DSP card front to a Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered another panel of Dandy Garden DSP down the center of the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered a panel of Dandy Garden DSP to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the wildflower image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I colored the flowers and leaves in using my Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored the flower centers in using my Bumblebee Stampin’ Write Marker. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the panel. I cut the panel using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and embossed it using my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the artwork to a Mossy Meadow mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

I cut a couple of the bees from a panel of the Dandy Garden DSP using my Dandy Wishes Dies and adhered them to the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a double bow using the Misty Moonlight/Silver Bakers Twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it to the bottom of the artwork using a Glue Dot. I added a Ladybug Trinket by the sentiment using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the wildflower image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored the flowers and leaves in using my Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered another bee that I had cut from the Dandy Garden DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the wildflower image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the Dandy Garden DSP to the envelope flap.

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! Dragonfly Garden Thanks for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today and staying healthy. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a color challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s awesome projects. Here is my card for today.

This week we have a color challenge for our blog hop. Here are the colors. I chose Pool Party as the color of my choice. I’m really starting to like black and white cards lately.

I started by stamping the wild flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Cling Stamp Set on a panel of Basic White cardstock twice in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the butterfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty Abounds Cling Stamp Set above the flowers in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the butterfly in using my Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty Abounds stamp set on the top of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I embossed the panel using my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and adhered the panel to a Pool Party mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of the 3/8″ Pool Party Sheer Ribbon around the matted panel and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Basic Black card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the butterfly image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink above the sentiment and colored it in using my Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pool Party mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the wild flower image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the butterfly image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink by the flowers and colored it in using my Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Sale-A-Bration Oh So Ombre 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.

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.

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.

Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Friend Birthday Sneak Peek

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers. How has everyone’s weekend started off? I’ll be at work all day today.

I have 1 more sneak peek card from last weekends OnStage@Home event for you. I can’t believe it’s already been a week since our OnStage@Home event. I’m loving these designs that the demonstrator came up with for these cards. They really showcase the whole suite. Here’s my take on the last design.

This card once again uses the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Bundle. Everyone’s card is a little different depending on which pattern of DSP they chose.

I started by stamping the wildflower image from the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Smoky Slate card front. I stamped the sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the bottom of the panel.

I adhered the 3 panels of Dandy Garden 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper that I chose to the right of the flowers using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of the Mossy Meadow 3/16″ Braided Lined Trim (available January 5,2021) around the card front and tied a bow.

I cut 3 of the small dragonflies out of a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Dragonflies Punch. I brushed them using my Clear Wink of Stella and adhered them to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the wildflower image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on either side of the panel. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Smoky Slate mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the wildflower image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Dandy Garden DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, I hope you liked my card. All items used for this card will be available from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog on January 5th, 2021. If you are one of my customers and have placed an order in the past year I will be sending a catalog out to you as soon as I receive them. Happy Stamping!!
