Dragonfly Dreams Bee Happy Card from Stampin' Up! - #GDP075



I'm taking part in the Global Design Project for the first time and in my usual style I'm leaving it until the last few hours to submit my entry!

This week's theme is Winged Creatures.


Although I've used the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set, I've actually used the bee image.


I stamped the bee image twice - firstly with Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto Whisper White card and then secondly onto vellum with Black Stazon. I coloured in the cardstock stamped bee with a Crushed Curry marker and cut out the body. I then attached the vellum wings that I had stamped onto vellum and used the clear Wink of Stella pen to give some shimmer to the wings. Once this was complete the rest of the card came together quite easily.


And of course no card is complete without a bit of stamping inside - this is how I finished it off...


To make this project you will need:

Cardstock/Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Crushed Curry, Vellum, Pop of Pink Specialty DSP  Stamps: Dragonfly Dreams, Labeler Alphabet  Ink: Crushed Curry, Basic Black Marker, Memento Tuxedo Black, Black Stazon  Tools/Acc: Wink of Stella Clear, Stampin' Dimensionals, Stitched Shapes Framelits

Pinkies Autumn/Winter Blog Hop


Thank you for joining us on another Pinkies Blog Hop! We're showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin' Up!® Seasonal Autumn Winter Catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping!

Welcome to those who have joined me from Sarah's blog - wasn't her project gorgeous? I just love how she has used the new products from Stampin' Up!'s new seasonal catalogue which runs until the end of the year.

One of the first products I feel immediately in love with was the gorgeous and versatile Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper. I particularly love the sheet with the gingerbread houses and could not resist using this as the basis for my project – a 3D shadow box card.


After cutting out the gingerbread house image, I have used crumb cake cardstock as the background to the shadow box – having first embossed it with the Falling Softly embossing folder and using the chalk marker on the embossed image, so it looks like snow falling. I finished off the edges of the card using images cut from other sheets of the DSP.



Of course as it was a 3D card, I needed to make an envelope to fit, so used some more of the Candy Cane Lane DSP and the envelope punch board to make the perfect envelope



If you want to know how to make a shadow box card, you will find lots of tutorials on YouTube.

Pinkies Sneak Peak 2016/17 Annual Catalogue Blog Hop


Thank you for joining us on another Pinkies Blog Hop! We're showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin' Up!® Annual Catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping!

Welcome to those who have joined me from Hannah's blog - wasn't her project gorgeous? I just love how she has used the new products from Stampin' Up!'s new annual catalogue which launches on 1 June.

I have a lot of birthdays coming up so needed to make a batch of girlie cards and just had to use one of the new in-colours - Sweet Sugarplum [don't you just love the colour and the name ;-)]. I decided to pair it with one of the new hostess sets - Gift of Love. I also used the new Thoughtful Banners stamp set which co-ordinates with a new punch - the Duet Banner Punch (and you'll be able to get both as a bundle and save 10% - I love a bargain!)


The panel on the side has been made by stamping one of the images from Gorgeous Grunge in Sweet Sugarplum ink onto Sweet Sugarplum cardstock, interspersed with light brushes from the Wink of Stella gold pen. I also created a raised effect by stamping the banner twice, and cutting part of it out and gave it extra dimension by using Stampin' Dimensionals.


I did lots of versions of the flowers, until I was happy with the blended effect, but like all crafters I don't like to waste anything, so used some left over items to make these two cards....


Don't forget to stop by Sarah's blog as I know she has a fab project to share with you. Click on the next button below to take a look....


To make these projects you will need:

Cardstock/Paper: Thick Whisper White, Whisper White, Sweet Sugarplum  Stamps: Gift of Love (Hostess 2016/17), Thoughtful Banners, Gorgeous Grunge  Ink: Sweet Sugarplum, Pear Pizzazz, Momento Black Tuxedo, Blushing Bride,  Tools/Accessories: Duet Banner Punch, Wink of Stella pen (gold)  Stampin' Dimensionals, Blender pen


You can order from my online shop 24/7 or if you prefer contact me directly. Don't forget you can't order any of the sneak peak items though until 1 June 2016. Why not contact me and I’ll send you an advance copy of the new catalogue.

A la prochaine! Amitiés!
