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.

Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes Sneak Peek for my Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? I hope you all had a productive one. Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be working all day tomorrow. It’s been a rainy few days here but of course it’s suppose to be sunny tomorrow.

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. You won’t be able to make the exact card unless you were able to purchase these set already. Both stamp sets and the DSP will be available in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. Here’s the card that I made.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Cling Stamp Set to make my card today.

I started by lightly adhering a panel of the Dandy Garden 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Bumblebee card base using a tiny amount of Stampin’ Seal just on 2 of the corners to hold it in place. I cut the center out using the 2nd largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I set the pieces to the side and adhered the Dandy Garden DSP to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I tied a piece of the Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In-Color 1/4″ Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow. I added a Glue Dot under the bow to hold it in place.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the dandelion image from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I stamped the flower center image from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Bumblebee Ink, stamping off once, in the center of the dandelion. I colored the stem and leave in using my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the 3rd largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered the artwork to the Bumblebee mat (which I cut out from the card base earlier), using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a panel of Dandy Garden DSP to the inner card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then adhered the matted artwork to it using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a couple of the Ladybug Trinkets to the artwork using Glue Dots.

On the inside Z-Fold card I stamped the wild flower image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Garden Wishes stamp set in the center of the Whisper White panel I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Bumblebee Ink on the top and bottom corners of the panel, masking it with a Post-It note so that I didn’t get ink on the side panel. I colored the flowers in using my Calypso Coral and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the inner card base to a Misty Moonlight 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 Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the dandelion image from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the flower center image from the Garden Wishes stamp set in bumblebee Ink, stamping off once, in the center of the dandelion. I colored the leaves and stem in using my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Bumblebee 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 and will give it a try. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. The stamp sets and DSP for my project today will be available in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog on January 5, 2021.
