Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set-- Another Sneak Peek card


  • Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set & Coordinating Dragonflies Punch
  • January 20211 Mini Catalog Sneak Peek
  • Final two days to order November Paper Pumpkin Jolly Gingerbread Kit
I'm still walking on the creative clouds after attending the Stampin' Up! virtual convention called OnStage@Home.  I'm still playing with the Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set with its coordinating Dragonflies punch, which we used to create three samples during the event, which I showed you a few days ago.  Today, I created one more card with this new stamp set and punch bundle.  I used gold heat embossing, gold Gilded Gems, Gold Foil Sheets, and gold thread from the Forever Greenery trim Combo Pack to pull this card together.

The card above uses a basecard of Blackberry Bliss Cardstock.  Then a layer of Whisper White dry embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  Then a layer of Gold Foil Sheets, with a collage of images from the Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set.

The collage portion of the card is Whisper White.  I used Sponge Daubers to shade the a corner of the  largest Whisper White panel with Coastal Cabana.  Then I did the same using Blackberry Bliss ink and Sponge Daubers on the corner of the upper right Whisper White panel.  Then I stamped the images using Versamark on top of the colored panels, added Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder, and set it with my Heat Tool.

This bottom right Whisper White panel is stamped with a sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss ink.  Then I stamped one of the butterflies from this set onto Whisper White cardstock using Versamark ink, covered it with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder, and set it using my Heat Tool.  I used the new Dragonflies Punch to punch out the Dragonflies image, then I used Sponge Daubers to lightly color the wings using Blackberry Bliss ink.  I mounted the dragonfly using full size and Mini Dimensionals and mounted it on the lower right panel.

I used some of the gold thread from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack to tie a bow and added it to the card front.  I also selected three gold Gilded Gems and scattered them onto the card front to finish the gold accents on this card.

This sneak peek of the Garden Wishes Bundle is an other example of the beautiful images and thoughtful sentiments you'll soon have access to if you're a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  My customers who purchased within the pat 6 months will see the 2021 mini catalog plus the Sale-A-Bration flyer in late December.   This time of the year is a great time to ask for a Holiday gift that includes new products from the current catalogs and the upcoming 2021 catalogs.  Add these stamp sets and products to your Shopping List today, then contact me when you're ready for more creative ideas and to purchase your supplies.
