Dragonfly Dreams Bee Card from Stampin’ Up!

This weeks challenge at the Global Design Project is to make a card featuring a winged creature! I love bumble bees. I fell in love with this chubby little chap as soon as I saw the Dragonfly dreams stamp set.

Dragonfly Dreams Bee Card

Isn’t the bee beeautiful?  I stamped onto watercolour paper which was cut out with our stitched framelit dies (which are still available but not in a catalogue, click the link in the items used at the bottom of this post if you wish to order) which I love as you get three shapes of dies in 3 sizes for each shape and 12 dies in total.

I then coloured with our marker pens and a blender pen and outlined him with a sahara sand marker.  The card base is made from Kraft cardstock and I stamped the bee in black ink.  It looks so striking on the kraft background.

I then finished it off with our gorgeous burlap ribbon and linen thread.

We would love you to play along this week at the Global Design Project and made something using the challenge outlined below.  Pop on over to the Global Design Project to see what the other design team members have made and also see the instructions on how to play along.

Dragonfly Dreams – Bumble Bee Cards

Dragonfly Dreams is a beautiful stamp set but its not all about dragonflies!  There is one cute chubby little bumble bee image in there too and the sentiments are lovely!

Dragonfly Dreams Bee Happy

I made this super simply card using our bundle bee stamp and cut it out and lightly coloured the wings with grey ink and the body with crushed curry and a blender pen.   A little line of dots and a cute sentiment was all that was needed to finish this simple card off,

Our little bee friend is raised on a dimensional.

Endless Thanks from Stampin’ Up!

Following on from my card yesterday for the InKing Royalty blog hop I have another card made using the same style using the Endless Thanks stamp set (one of my favourite stamp sets).  I love the clean style of this card and the white space make the flower stamps pop.

Endless Thanks raised greeting card

The hello sentiment is cut from Hello You Thinlit dies.  I cut three lots of smoky slate ‘hello’ words and one in white and glued them together to create height and dimension.

Endless Thanks Close Up

I finished off the flowers with enamel dots.

Super Duper Birthday Balloons from Stampin Up

Balloon Birthday Card using Super Duper

I fell in love with the Super Duper stamp set as soon as I saw in the new seasonal catalogue.  I just loved the graphic balloons and knew I could get a great image with just one stamp but this is the first chance I have had to play and share this set with you.  Balloons = Birthday so it was an easy choice for me!

I simply stamped the background using 4 colours of ink and the two balloon stamps.  You even get a little string stamp for the balloons!  I had my sewing machine out so I decided to add a stitched effect around the edge in grey thread to compliment the Smoky Slate card base I used.

I then cut three smoky slate happy die cut words from the Hello You Thinlits and one in whisper white and layered them to create dimension.  I simply stuck them in the centre so that the greeting popped against the bright coloured balloon background and add the word birthday from the Crazy About You stamp set.

A smattering of sequins was all it need to finish it off.
