SNEAK PEEK: Dragonfly Dreams & Mini Blog Hop #3

I hope you are enjoying the holiday season.  I'm back...back with another sneak peek before the NEW! 2017 Occasions Catalog launches on January 4, 2017.  The wait isn't much longer!

Like the other two cards I shared last week, when Patty, Cindee and I got together earlier this month, we made this dreamy Dragonfly Dreams Card featuring the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle (Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set and Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies).  

Our design inspiration came from a card shared by Stampin' Up!'s co-founder, Shelly Gardner, at Stampin' Up!'s OnStage event in early November.  I don't have a picture of it, but I would say it looks very similar to the one I created below.

For our background, we used the new Watercolor Pencils, some Watercolor Paper and an Aqua Painter.  

The watercolor pencils we used are:
  • Daffodil Delight
  • Pumpkin Pie
  • Melon Mambo
  • Rich Razzleberry 

Using a heavy hand, I colored on the four colors.  I then went over the colors in a zigzag pattern with the Aqua Painter and blended them.  I used a bit more water than usual because my goal was a splotchy look, and I got just what I wanted.

After letting the watercolor background dry, I finished my card off by flicking on some drops of Gold Wink of Stella, added some Gold Thread and a large die cut dragonfly cut from Shimmery White Cardstock, and stamped my sentiment in Archival Basic Black ink.  Lastly, I added my card front onto a Mambo Melon card base.

You will find all of the Stampin' Up! products used to create my card below; however, you can start ordering the new products on January 4, 2017.  Order the available products you need by placing your order in my Online Store anytime, or click any of the photos below to go right to that item.

I love how this card turned out, but I also love how Patty's and Cindee's cards turned out too.  Be sure to also check out what they made.  We each did something a little different.  Find links to their blogs below:
