Stampin’ Up! Dragonflies Playing

Here it is Jan 3, 2021 ~ did you look forward to a new year, new beginnings, new challenges? Did you set some new goals? And perhaps more importantly, did you leave some worries, hurts behind? That may be the most difficult thing to do, but necessary… I’m rooting for you … and trying to do the same.

I played yesterday… with dragonflies, Laser-Cut Paper, the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack and one or two other things. Let’s take a look at these creations.

Love, love, love this Laser-Cut Paper (available to customers Jan 5!). It’s on both cards 1 & 2. And the dragonfly on card 1 was created with vellum, 99% alcohol and inks. Card #3 uses the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack & Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP. Let’s get into some detail for each of these cards.

Card #1

  • Thick Whisper White card base; covered on the front with a panel of Oh So Ombre 6×6 DSP (a FREE item during Sale-a-bration with a $50 purchase – begins Jan 5)
  • Laser-Cut Paper adhered to a panel of the same Oh So Ombre 6×6 DSP, but the ombre paper turned the opposite way. Wrap this with Striped Ribbon in Blackberry Bliss and tie a bow. Secure the ribbon with a glue dot under the knot. (The ribbon will be available Jan 5!) This was adhered to a Blackberry Bliss panel and popped onto the card front with dimensionals.
  • The sentiment panel was stamped with a sentiment from Dandy Garden stamp set (yep, available Jan 5) on a scrap of the oh So Ombre 6×6 DSP and die cut with Stitched So Sweetly Dies. Put on dimensionals and pop above the bow. Add the super sweet Metallic Pearls in silver.
  • The butterfly was created with vellum, 99% alcohol and inks using a brush. This took a bit of doing as you must work quickly and not get the vellum too saturated or it really wrinkles and becomes un-usable. After drying, I stamped the dragonfly in Tuxedo Black ink and punched it with the Dragonfly Punch. I then stamped another dragonfly on vellum and punched it as well. I adhered the two together with mini dimensionals and popped this onto the card front with additional mini dimensionals. I added three sweet Metallic Pearls in silver to the body and the card front was done.

For the inside of Card #1 I used one of the Laser-Cit Paper flowers and adhered it with dabs of liquid glue. I then added this frame in Blackberry Bliss card stock that was created with Stitched Rectangles Dies and trimmed.

For the envelope, I stamped the single posy from Dandy Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink, colored the center with stamped-off Blackberry Bliss ink with the appropriate stamp from the Dandy Garden stamp set, then colored the leaves with Stampin Blends in Old Olive. The flap was covered with a scrap of the Oh So Ombre 6×6 DSP and the card was complete.

Card #2

Dandy Laser-Cut Paper, Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP – card #2

I was enamored of the Dandy Laser-Cut Paper and couldn’t quit!. All these dragonflies in one is just gorgeous. I began by adhering a panel of Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP to a piece of Whisper White card stock. This was adhered to a card base of Misty Moonlight card stock. I then adhered the Dandy Laser-Cut Paper to a piece of vellum with dots of liquid glue, being careful not to use too much. This was popped up on mini dimensionals and adhered to the panel of the Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP. I pulled out the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack and used the sentiment to peel & stick right on the card front. I then added a bow from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack (in Misty Moonlight & Silver cording) and the front was done.

For the inside I stamped the dragonflies in Misty Moonlight ink from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set onto a panel of Whisper White card stock. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink. I adhered the finished panel to the inside of he card with liquid glue. For the envelope, I used the same dragonfly from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set and stamped it in Misty Moonlight on the front of the envelope. I used another coordinating piece of the Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP to the envelope flap and finis!

Card #3

Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack – card #3

I found a panel in the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack that I wanted to use and adhered it to a slightly larger piece of Whisper White card stock. I wrapped this with the stunning Mossy Meadow Braided Linen Thread and tied a knot. I placed a glue dot under the knot to hold it in place. I then added a super cute Ladybug Trinket climbing on the dandelion. It was added with a glue dot. I had found a piece of the Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP that I thought went really well with the front panel. The DSP was adhered to Bumblebee card stock and that was adhered to the Misty Moonlight card front. I returned to the ribboned panel, put dimensionals on the back and adhered it to finish the card front.

For the inside I stamped the single posy from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink, stamped the filler for the flower in Bumblebee ink and colored the leaves and flower stem with Old Olive Stampin Blends. This Whisper White panel was adhered to a slightly larger piece of Bumblebee card stock and that was then added to the inside of the card – all with liquid glue. For the envelope I stamped the same single dandelion to the front and colored it the same as the inside of the card. I used the same DSP as the card front for the envelope flap.

So – what do you think? What is your favorite card? Each is so different – I really like them all. But I think my favorite is the Misty Moonlight with the Dandy Laser-Cut dragonflies.

Stampin! Dandy Garden Memories & More

Hello again! If you have been reading my ‘publication’, you know that Stampin’ Up! will be premiering a new catalog Jan 5. As a demonstrator it is a privilege to order particular items from that catalog. Today I am sharing a few cards that I made yesterday using the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack AND the coordinating Memories & More Cards & Envelopes.

The first card really shows off the Cards & Envelopes… The colorful daisy scene on the front is one of the ‘cards’ in the Card Pack. I simply mounted said card on a panel of Mossy Meadow card stock using liquid glue, wrapped some of the Braided linen Thread (in Mossy Meadow of course) around it, put it on dimensionals and added it to the center of the card front. In the card pack are these delightful stickers: I added the word ‘celebrate’ and if you look closely, you will also see a bumblebee sticker. :o) Depending on what I stamp on the inside (which I haven’t just yet) will determine if it says birthday or you or words of congratulations. I love that it’s ready for a final touch.

Card #2 uses two more panels from the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack: the large green one and the smaller panel too. Here I mounted the smaller card on a panel of Bumblebee card stock with liquid glue, used a punch to make notches on each side and wound Linen Thread twice around the panel and tied a bow. I added the sticker ‘Thinking of you’, put dimensionals on the back of the panel and voila. This one could easily be a sympathy card. Oh, the large green floral panel was adhered to a Dandy Garden Card (with liquid glue) from the cards & envelopes.

Card #3 uses two more panels from the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack: the larger darker panel is adhered with liquid glue to a Dandy Garden Card; the smaller panel was trimmed a bit, going around the sweet floral image on the left and stamped with a sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set (in Tuxedo Black Memento ink). I die cut a panel of Whisper White card stock using the Ornate layers Dies. I adhered this beauty with liquid glue to the large yellow panel then added the smaller panel with dimensionals. I punched a dragonfly from a piece of the Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP using the Dragonfly Punch, popped it on a mini dimensional and voila – another card!

And card #4… a card for encouragement or.. thank you. This card uses another floral green panel from the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack, layered on a Dandy Garden Card (from cards & envelopes). I die cut a panel from Whisper White card stock using the Rectangle Stitched Dies. To that I added the smaller card from the card pack using liquid glue; adhered the yellow sticker from the card pack and stamped a sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set. I added another floral sticker for fun. Then I wrapped a Bumblebee 2020-2022 In Color Ribbon around the end and tied a knot. This panel was adhered with liquid glue to the card front and bam – another card. (I’m probably going to add a cute Ladybug Trinket to this card, cuz it needs it!)

Stampin’ Up! has what they call a Dandy Garden Suite ~ and this suite has several products in it: the Dragonfly Garden stamp set & coordinating Dragonfly Punch, the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack, Dandy Garden Memories & More Cards & Envelopes, Ladybug Trinkets, Braided Linen Thread in Mossy Meadow, another stamp & die set I haven’t opened yet (Garden Wishes stamp set & Dandy Wishes Dies), Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP AND two sheets of stunningly glorious Dandy Laser-Cut Paper.

So why promote the suite? 10% off when purchased as a suite in lieu of purchasing individually! How is that for a reason?! Below are pictures of these products – but pictures do not give them beauty justice, just so ya know.

The Dandy Garden Suite will be available to purchase Jan 5, 2021. A Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog will be sent or hand delivered to you (if you have been a customer during the last year) in early December. In that package will also be a Sale-A-Bration catalog which will feature products that are a bonus with every product purchase of $50 or $100. Those will be available only Jan-Feb. If you have been used to Sale-A-Bration running a longer period, it is changing to run only two months.

Thanks for being a customer! As a thank you I offer with a $50 – $150 purchase a SU! item valued at $10 – your choice of item! Please use my current HOST CODE XS4MSSFN when ordering now through Nov 18 to receive your free item. Besides the Dandy Garden Suite, other products used in todays project may be found below. Please let me know if I may assist you in some way.

Another coordinated product that is available RIGHT NOW is the Curvy Celebrations products. Curvy Christmas stamp set & Classic Christmas 6×6 DSP will only be available to the end of the year, while the Quite Curvy Bundle will be in the Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog – but all of it is AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE NOW in the Quite Curvy Variety Bundle seen below.
