Create a layered dragonfly
I am so pleased that the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set is carrying over into the new Stampin' Up! Catalogue (1st June 2018).

I made this pink dragonfly card after the Mint Macaron Dragonfly Card I showcased earlier on in the week - as you can see by changing the colour scheme you can create a totally different look.

What do I need to make this project? 
I used Melon Mambo plus some Blushing Bride and Basic Black to stamp the decorative dots, some Silver Metallic Thread and Pearl Basic Jewels for embellishment, and some Vellum for extra depth and dimension:

The sentiment is from Dragonfly Dreams, so no need to invest in another stamp set for this project.

I used the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies to cut out the coloured dragonfly and the Vellum dragonfly.

Create a variety of looks... 
There is an awful lot you can do with this stamp set - you can colour the tiny panels on the dragonfly's wings, or change the colour scheme of the dots to create a totally different look.

Why not use another colour altogether? Pacific Point and Bermuda Bay are bold and bright.

This stamp set is perfect for all those summery cards, and for those that love either dragonflies or bees.

It's a versatile set and because it has images with sentiments you can swap either with other sets.



I look forward to sharing many more projects with this set over the coming months, if you have this stamp set and would like to share your creations with me I'd love to see them! Use the email address at the top of the page.

Happy stamping,
