Dragonfly Garden

This week’s inspiration challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is full of wonderful summer images. I was inspired by the dragonfly and the sunflowers images. I created my card using the Dragonfly Garden stamp set and dsp papers from the Harvest Meadow DSP collection. I made a tag and punched a hole with a regular hole punch using the Bumbleee Harvest Meadow dsp and Basic White card stock. I stamped the Basic White tag with the flower image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set and colored with Stampin’ Write Markers. The large dragonfly was stamped with black Momento and die cut with the Dragonflies punch as well as the smaller dragonflies from Misty Moonlight and Cajun Craze card stock. The large dragon fly was colored using the Balmy Blue Blends and Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Write marker. I embellished with Wink of Stella on the flowers and large dragonfly and finished with Linen Thread and Brushed Metallic Adhesive dots. Super easy card to make.

Garden Wishes Sympathy Card

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments they have a color challenge of Calypso Coral, Bumblebee and Just Jade.  I needed to make a sympathy card for a friend and decided to use the colors in the challenge and use a technique I had not used in awhile.  I created the watercolor background by coloring an acrylic block with Bumblebee and Just Jade markers then spritzing the block with water and stamping it onto Shimmery White card stock.  I then dried the ink with my heat tool.  I then stamped the flowers from the Dragonfly Garden Stamp set and sentiment with Stazon Jet Black.  The sentiment is from the retired Thoughts an Prayers stamp set.  I then colored the center of the flowers with a Calypso Coral marker then die cut the dragonflies with the Dragonflies punch.  Love this punch because you can punch a large and small dragonfly.  The larger dragonfly coordinates with stamps from the stamp set.  The smaller one is meant to be used as a silhouette.  I die cut the small dragonflies from Bumblebee then colored with Wink of Stella.  It’s difficult to see the Shimmer on the Shimmer White paper and the dragonflies in the photo.  I also added rhinestones for extra shine.
