Make a Simple Card with Dragonfly Dreams by Stampin'Up!


There is one stamp set in the Occasions catalog that I believe deserves a bit of tender loving care. 
Making simple cards is always my goal. This set is perfect!


Is the beautiful Dragonfly Dream stamp set.


This is really a simple card. I am all for simple cards. Cards that are beautiful, carry an encouraging message and are NOT time-consuming. 

Why? Because life is full. Life is busy. Everyone demands your attention.  I understand. So why not try something simple today and let the beauty of the stamp do the work.

Dragonfly Dreams does that. 


My inspiration for these cards actually came from another card I designed  years ago. The post is here back in 2011, the stamp set was Kindness Matters (one of my retired faves).

Whisper White card base (5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4")
Top layer of a die cut mounted on dimensional adhesives
Soft background image 
Darker image on top
Simple embellishments

Can you try this with what you have at home?





All materials are below.
 I LOVE the simplicity but elegance of these.

Stampin' Up! Birthday Brights Kit Review: Part 2


Hello my friends,
I have been exploring the Birthday Brights Kits found in the Occasions Catalog from Stampin'Up!
this week, and today I want to show you an alternate for the banners card (on the left). 

The banners cards is A BIT TIME CONSUMING,
as you will need to stick the banners one by one to the twine and that task was NOT MY FAVORITE.
When that happens my creativity kicks in and you get a TOTALLY NEW CARD! 

Remember that cute cake die cut left over from the other cake card in the kit. Well, I put it to good use here! Added a bow and do you see HOW I used the banners? 
Yeah! I cut them. See video below! Eek!


Now, here is the shaker card that comes with the kit.
I have to say, instructions were clear, confetti is awesome and there is plenty of long dimensional. 
TIP TIP TIP
You will use exactly two dimensional lines for each card. Is perfect! Plus you get extra for the other cards. I suggest you start with this one when you open your kit.



ANOTHER TIP
In a clean paper plate, place a dot of Tombow Liquid Glue.
Then add the glue with your finger or a small sponge to the back of your glittery sentiment "Birthday". So easy and no mess!


MY REVIEW
The original banners card was a 10/10 for cute, but I will give it a 5/10 for time consuming, and a 7/10 for difficulty. It just takeS skill to be adding those little banners. Yikes!
I made an alternate for you, but if you love the banners and have the time give it a try. You will like it!

The shaker card gets a 10/10 from me, for pretty, easy and excellent instructions and pictures.

I am so thankful you stopped by today.
