Dragon Fly Dreams With A Little Bokeh

Hi and Happy New Year for 2017.

I've been a little quiet on my blog this last month, as I've been enjoying some family time, a little interstate travel, Christmas and New Year. Now, however it is time to wow you all with some samples from the new Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue that will be on sale from January 4th. If you would like a catalogue please request one from my Demonstrator website fill in your request in the contact form and I'll send it to you. 

The new Occasions Catalogue is full of fabulous BUNDLES. You save 10% when purchasing 2 products in a bundle and  one of the first Bundles I purchased was the Dragon Fly Bundle consisting of The Dragonfly Dreams stamp set (#142924) and the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies (#142749) 
Dragonfly Bundle number is 144728.

I combined stamping, die cutting and Designer Series paper together for this card.

One of my favourite Designer Series Papers is the Serene Scenery 15.2 cm square Paper Stack. In this card I used the bokeh image as the main background to my card. I stamped the Dragonfly in Old Olive and then stamped it off to produce a lighter image. Don't you just love the delicate lines in this stamped image?

I cut the Black dragonfly from Black Glimmer Paper. You can see how it shimmers in the detail photo below.

I added a greeting from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set - love that script, and stamped that using Memento Black on Thick Whisper White card stock. This was a bit stark against the rest of the card so I used my usual method of softening and area by stamping off a part image (dragonfly) and sponging very lightly around the edges. I matted the greeting with Black Glimmer paper and raised it on Dimensionals. The dragonfly is also raised with Dimensionals

This particular card is a Pop Up Twist Card with a base of Thick Whisper White.
I hope you like my first sample from the new Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue. Pop back often to see more samples. You are going to love this catalogue - it is so diverse and so gorgeous. 

Until Next Time
