Stampin Up Dragonfly Dreams

There have been some fabulous sunrises and sunsets recently with the year nearing the shortest day and this gave me the inspiration for today's card. I am using a brand new stamp set and die bundle not available till 1st January 2017 but I just know it is going to fly, excuse the pun, when it launches in the new Stampin Up Spring/summer catalogue. Dragonflies are as popular as butterflies and can add beautiful dimensions to many cards and projects.

I started with the confetti embossing folder and watercoloured in pink, purple and yellow. Once dried I used some gilding wax to bring the embossed area to life and also the centre panel. Then I sponged with blackberry bliss and dapper denim to give that dreamy sunset sky. I die cut the largest Dragonfly and mounted on dimensionsals and then die cut and cut out separately the smaller dragonflies all in black for a gorgeous silhouette.

Stampin Up products are only available through demonstrators like myself, so write my name down Jane Allmark and when ordering please use me. The Spring/Summer catalogue together with Saleabration supplement which is full of free items for every £45 spent I will send to you if you drop me a line, so you can be ready to order on 1st Jan and if you are in the GU9 Farnham area I run monthly workshop classes where you get to try out new products and make projects.
