You’ve Got This with a Tin of Cards and Dragonfly Dreams

By Debbie Mageed, Dragonfly Dreams, tin of Cards, You've Got This, Congratulations, Stampin Up

 

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!

Lovely Inside & Out

My blog post last Tuesday showed you the card I made for the Retro Rubber Photo Inspiration Challenge and I mentioned that was the second card I made. This card is the first one and I thought I would share with you. It uses four different stamp sets: the floral image is from Best of Flowers, the card front sentiment is from Jar of Love, the ladybug is from Sharing Sweet Thoughts and the inside sentiment is from Lovely Inside & Out.

 

It’s All in the Details
  • This card is just a tad bigger than an A2 card: 4 1/2″ x 5 3/4″ (and I don’t know why!). The Thick Whisper White card base is 4 1/2″ x 11″ and scored at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″ to make the easel card base.
  • Old Olive cardstock is cut to 4 1/2″ x 5 3/4″ and layered with Whisper White cardstock cut at 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″.  Patterned paper from Color Theory DSP Stack cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″.
  • A small panel was also cut with Lemon Lime Twist cardstock to 1 7/8″ x  4 7/8″. Color Theory patterned DSP  was trimmed to 1 5/8″ x 4 5/8″.
  • The floral image was stamped in Old Olive ink. The leaves were colored in Lemon Lime Twist with a blender pen then cut out with the Oval Framelit.
  • The sentiment was stamped in Old Olive and punched with the Washi Tape Punch.
  • Once the Lemon Lime Twist Ribbon was adhered to the background panels and adhered to the card base, the Oval image was also adhered to the card base as well as the sentiment, which was popped up with dimensionals.
  • The Finishing Touch was the cute little ladybug that was stamped and colored with Real Red marker and adhered to the leaf on the flower. Then, the Lemon Lime Bow from the new In Color Bitty Bows Embellishments was adhered to the ribbon.

 

Easel InsideBy Debbie Mageed, Best of Flowers, Lovely Inside & Out, Jar of Love, Sharing Sweet Thoughts, Easel, Color Theory, Stampin Up
  • DSP from the Color Theory DSP Stack was cut for the inside of the card and adhered to the cardbase.
  • The sentiments were stamped in Old Olive and Lemon Lime Twist and cut out with the Rounded Corner Rectangle Framelit and popped up on to the card base with dimensionals.
