One of the prettiest stamp sets in our current Stampin’ Up! catalog is the Dragonfly Dreams set. Sadly, it is going to retire soon, Dragonfly Dreams goodbye. Not to worry, it will be replaced by lots of other beautiful things! I made this card a few weeks ago for a swap and wanted to share it with you in case you are in need of some inspiration.
I got to use some fun techniques on this one!
Design Notes for Dragonfly Dreams Goodbye Card:
Of course, the dragonfly is the star of this card. I stamped the image on a piece of vellum with some Soft Sea Foam ink and them immediately added some clear embossing powder. After I heat embossed it, I used the Detailed Dragonfly dies to cut it out. Did you know that you can emboss with regular ink instead of Versamark? You need a well inked pad. (Another reason to be sure to purchase a refill when you buy the ink pad.) You also need to act quickly – add the powder and heat right away.
The other interesting part of this card is the dry embossing. I used a Sponge Brayer and added Soft Sea Foam ink to the inside of the Petal Burst Embossing folder with a Foam Brayer. The Whisper White card stock piece was embossed the same way and then fit into the Soft Sea Foam piece.
The tag was stamped on Whisper White card stock and rounded with the Detailed Trio Punch.
I finished off the tag with some sponging and ribbon.
