I started working with the new Dragonfly Punch and was having way too much fun… mixed in Garden wishes stamp set and some Dandy Garden Memories & More cards plus a bit of Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP.

Here are two cards to add to my sympathy stash…

The Garden Wishes card is created with a Calypso Coral card base 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4. The next layer is Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP 2 1/8 x 5 1/4 with Whisper White card stock on top 1 7/8 x 5 1/4 ~ both adhered with liquid glue. My next step was to cut a panel of Whisper White 2 5/8 x 4 and stamp it in Smokey Slate ink with the Garden wishes stamp set. I adhered this to a Calypso Coral piece 2 3/4 x 4 1/8 and attached dimensionals to it and popped it in the center of the card. For the sentiment I pulled out my Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack and peeled a sticky sentiment and just added it to the small panel. I really like that burst of color on the card – not too overwhelming, but adds something to it. Next I had already punched a dragonfly from the Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP, covered it in Wink of Stella for some galm, put a couple of dimensionals on it and on it went. The bow is from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo (Terracotta Tile) and goes perfectly. Card front complete!

For the inside I stamped the sentiment in Smokey Slate ink from Woven Heirlooms stamp set on a panel of Whisper White 3 1/4 x 5. I added a smaller panel at the bottom to create something different – 1/2 x 5. I had a piece of the DSP left from the front of the card so added it with liquid glue.

The envelope flap got a strip of the same Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP plus a strip of Calypso Coral to finish. The front was stamped in Smokey Slate ink with the Garden Wishes stamp set.

Card #2 is the Dragonfly Garden bundle – and of course more…

Dragonfly Garden Bundle – #5

The card base is Thick Whisper White 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4. The next layer is regular Whisper White 4 x 5 1/4 run through new Painted Texture Embossing Folder and adhered with liquid glue. I stamped the floral bunch in Tuxedo Black Memento ink so I could color it with Stampin Blends. It was stamped on a piece of the Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP 1 3/4 x 4 3/4. The Stampin Blends used were: Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Highland Heather, Bronze and a bit of the Color Lifter. I adhered this to a panel of Bumblebee card stock just a bit larger 1 7/8 x 4 7/8. I cut yet another piece of Whisper White 2 1/4 x 5 1/4, ran it through the Tasteful Texture Embossing Folder, adhered it with liquid glue to the card front, then added the Bumblebee/ stamped panel with dimensionals. A dragonfly punched from a piece of the Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP was covered in Wink of Stella and added to the panel with more dimensionals. A smaller dragonfly was also added to the panel – on dimensionals. Finally I added the sentiment panel created days ago with the Many Messages stamp set & coordinating die – liquid glue on the right, directly on the panel and a mini dimensional or two on the left side. For a final touch I added one of the Ladybug Trinkets with a glue dot and the front was complete.

For the inside I stamped the small ‘squadron’ of dragonflies in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White card stock and colored with the Highland Heather Stampin Blends. I then stamped the sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in the same ink. I adhered this to the inside of the card with liquid glue and the card was complete. For the envelope, I covered the flap with the same Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP as card #1 and stamped the ‘squadron’ of dragonflies on top of it. Love Black Memento ink then stamped the wings with Bumblebee ink, from the same stamp set. And yes, I covered the wings with Wink of Stella.
