Welcome to my alphabet series showcasing some of the new products in the 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs. Today I’m showcasing Dragonfly Dreams. This is already one of the most popular new items and I can see why! It is so easy to create a quick and simple card with the Detailed Dragonfly Dies and some DSP. I used different dies, sentiments, and Designer Series Paper on each of these calendar cards.
The sentiment is from the Designer Tee Stamp Set which you can get FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration. There are 10 different stamps in the set. I cut the detailed dragonfly from gold foil and attached vellum behind the wings.
It’s hard to tell in the photo but I added Wink of Stella to the dragonflies. I masked the sentiment from the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set and cut it out with the Layering Circle Framelits. It is quick and easy to stamp masked sentiments with photopolymer stamps!
I watercolored the bees using the new Watercolor Pencils and a blender pen. I cut them out with my paper snips. The calendars are from Taylored Expressions.
I don’t know which one is my favorite. I love the Detailed Dragonfly Dies! These calendar cards are made just like a basic card with the addition of a “tent” to make it sturdy to stand up all year long. To make the tent support, start with a matching piece of cardstock that measures 4 1/4 x 5. Score at 1, 2 1/2, and 4. Adhere to the inside of the card.
