Good Morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! For today’s card I used the pretty Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden bundle to make a pretty wildflower friendship card. I love the images in this stamp set and the pretty Dandy Garden designer series paper. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
We have a color challenge this week and here is the pretty color palette we are using – it just called out for the Dandy Garden designer series paper!!
I started by trimming the bottom of a Calypso Coral strip of the Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP with the Banner Triple Punch and adhering the banner to a colorful panel of the DSP. I adhered the layered panel to a Blackberry Bliss panel and wrapped it with a length of Bumblebee ribbon, securing it in the back. Then I wrapped a length of Mossy Meadow braided trim on top of the Bumblebee ribbon, tied a knot on the side and fluffed and trimmed the ends.
I stamped the wildflowers from the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden cling stamp set on a Basic White panel with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Mango Melody, Mossy Meadow, Cinnamon Cider, Misty Moonlight, Old Olive and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss ink next to the flowers and cut it out with the largest stitched oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I cut the largest scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals dies from Blackberry Bliss and adhered the stitched oval on top.
I adhered the oval panel to the banner panel with dimensionals. I used the Dragonflies Punch to punch a large Blackberry Bliss dragonfly from the Dandy Garden DSP pack and adhered it to the panel with glue dots. I adhered 4 ladybug trinkets to the front with more glue dots and popped the panel to the front of a Blackberry Bliss card base.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the the wildflowers from the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on thee side of a Basic White panel. I colored the flowers with Stampin’ blends just like the front oval panel. I stamped the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss next to the flowers and punched a little dragonfly from the Dandy Garden DSP. After adhering the little dragonfly to the top corner, I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
The Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden bundle has beautiful dragonfly and wildflower images and wonderful sentiments – it’s one of my many favorites in the current Mini Catalog. And the ladybug trinkets are just too cute!
