#SimpleStamping Saturday with Dragonfly Garden. As promised, I am back with #SimpleStamping Saturday, and this week I am using the Dragonfly Garden Stamp and Punch Bundle from the Dandy Garden. All of the cards are pretty quick to put together, not least because they use punches and patterned card bases.
My Quick version of this project is very quick. A White Notecard and Envelope and just 2 ink colours. I stamped the sentiment first, in Soft Suede, so I could then position one of the Dragonfly stamps above that, also stamped in Soft Suede.
I stamped the wings in Bumblebee and that was the card done. The envelope is stamped with the small dragonflies in either Bumblebee or Soft Sued – you choose! That’s it!
My first stepped up version introduces the Dandy Garden Memories & More Cards & Envelopes. These are printed in Bumblebee and come with printed envelopes. Obviously they are perfect to use with the Dandy Garden Memories & More card packs, but they can also be used without. In this case I punched some dragonflies from the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper and adhered them to the card front.
The sentiment is stamped in Soft Suede on White Card and then punched with the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. I layered this onto some Soft Suede card, also punched with the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. Adhered with some Multi Purpose Liquid Adhesive and with some gold Metallic Pearls and the card is finished. The envelope is already decorated, so it is already really pretty.
More Stepped Up Version
My final version introduces Heat Embossing and Vellum, as well as a little Fussy Cutting. It is otherwise identical to the previous version.
I coloured the reverse side of the Dragonflies with the dark Mango Melody Stampin’ Blend, just to help the wings stand out a little against the printed background.
I hope you have enjoyed today’s projects and that you will give them a go. To see how I made the Quick card, why not watch my video?
