Hey there Monday! Welcome to another Stamp Review Crew hop with my friends from around the world. Today we’re sharing projects we’ve made using the Dragonfly Garden stamp set. This was the make & take set – together with the coordinating Dragonflies punch – for last November’s Stampin’ Up! OnStage event. So, there’s plenty of samples out there and we’re excited to add even more ideas to the mix on how to use this great punch bundle.
I’ve made two cards to share with you today…
The first card uses the stamp set, punch and coordinating Dandy Garden DSP. The colours are Blackberry Bliss, Rich Razzleberry and Bumblebee.- guided as always by the colours used in the DSP. It’s a great way to put together colours without too much thought.
I’ve clear embossed the floral image on the Basic White circle (using the now sold out Stitched Shapes for the circle die cut). I love the subtle detail this adds to complement the delicate pattern of the DSP.
The sentiment for this card is just the ‘friend’ part of one of the sentiments in the stamp set. I’ve used partial greetings for both cards. It’s a good way to make the sentiments work for your style of card making.
The second card for today was inspired by a stunning card shared by Jan Clothier. The layout using the stitched triangles is great for creating a scene and perfect for the Dragonfly Garden stamp set!
I stamped the images from the stamp set across a piece of Basic White cardstock and then cut using three different sizes of triangles as per the layout. I then coloured them with Stampin’ Blends and layered over two solid coloured triangles (Bumblebee & Blackberry Bliss).
The final touches for this card were an Old Olive card base, Basic White mat layer embossed with the Painted Texture EF, a Rich Razzleberry stamped dragonfly and another partial sentiment.
I love that so many of the elements of this card were the same but the end result was so different.
Have a wonderful week!
