I resisted buying this stamp set until I saw all the amazing projects that were created with it. Now,
Dragonfly Dreams is one of my favorites from the Stampin' Up! Catalog.
I created an elegant card with both the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and coordinating Detailed Dragonfly thinlets.
My favorite "elegant" color combination is gold and elegant eggplant. So, for this card, I used both the elegant eggplant and gold foil sheets as well as a bit of wisteria wonder cardstock.
I stamped the background of the elegant eggplant cardstock with the dragonfly stamp in elegant eggplant ink. It gives the card a subtle tone on tone look.
I also used the ever popular Stitched Shapes framelits for the ovals. I did a little "sponging" around the small oval with a sponge dauber dipped in elegant eggplant ink.
And don't forget about sparkle, when it comes to making an elegant card... The gold glimmer paper really makes this dragonfly pop off of the card. I used the wisteria wonder cardstock behind the detail of the dragonfly. A little more shimmer and shine was added with the gold satin ribbon and metallic enamel shapes in gold as well.
I used the fine tip glue pen to attach the detailed dragonfly to the wisteria wonder dragonfly under it. Plus, I popped it up with a few dimensionals to give it some dimension.
I think this card would absolutely brighten someones day- just to say "hello."
I hope you give this card a try and if you don't have the Dragonfly Dreams bundle, you need to get one for yourself. You'll be glad you did!
Thanks for visiting!
Until the next time...
Keep on Stampin' and Come back again soon!
