I had a chance to get in my craft room and made a couple of cards that I needed before the weekend. This card is for one of my team members who did a great job sharing what she loves. This enabled her to get a great promotion with Stampin’ Up! so I wanted to let her know how happy I was for her. I used three different stamp sets; Dragonfly Dreams and You’ve Got This are current stamp sets and Tin of Cards just retired but will stay in my retired stash for obvious reasons. I love the variety of sentiments and the beautiful fonts!
It’s All in the Details
- This card came together pretty easily, considering I had no plan when I started. I first chose the two DSP patterns from Petal Gardens DSP stack. That gave me the color scheme of Rich Razzleberry and Calypso Coral. The card base is 4 1/2″ x 11″ in Rich Razzleberry, followed by a layer of Whisper White and one of the DSP patterned paper for the background panel.
- The floral patterned DSP was cut and layered onto Rich Razzleberry. The cotton ribbon was cut and tied onto this panel then adhered to the card base.
- The dragonfly from Dragonfly Dreams was stamped in Rich Razzleberry onto vellum and allowed to dry. Once it was completely dry , I cut it out with the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits and then colored the back side of the vellum with the Calypso Coral marker. Then, it was adhered to the card with a clear mini dimensional.
- The sentiment from Tin of Cards was stamped in Calypso Coral and cut with the Layered Oval Framelits. Then, it was popped up with dimensionals.
- The Finishing Touch was adding a clear faceted gem to the dragonfly.

The challenge over at As You See It is a very good one for me right now. The prompt is “how do you get your mojo back” and that has been an issue for me all summer with the chaos of my son’s wedding, house guests, etc, etc. The best way for me is to find time early in the morning or late at night. I often go to a fun fold card as well because it offers so many more ways to get creative. Just think of someone who could use a card from you – for any reason or none at all – and you will find your creativity coming back in no time at all. Card making is “art from the heart.” So I hope you will check out their wonderful design team and play along with me!
