Gold Embossed Dragonfly Garden

Do you know what I like most about the Dragonfly Garden Bundle?  Its the Dragonfly Punch... I love that there are two sizes of dragonflies and the little one is just a great size. 

But, okay, well there are two things I really like about this bundle.  The other is the wildflower stamp. This card makes me think of a big open field of wildflowers on a warm summer's night.  As the sun is setting, you look over top the flowers and can see all the little critters flitting around in the sunset light.  

My Dragonfly Garden card is relatively easy, but with all the Gold Embossing and the Brass Foil Sheets, I do not think it needed much fanfare in card design.

Have You Made a Slim Line Card?

Have you made a slimline card?  They have popped up everywhere and I have been wanting to try, so I finally did one. It was nice to make something a little different and will be making more. 

My slimline card features the Hydrangea Hill Suite Collection.  Gorgeous collection! Between the Gorgeous Grape Ribbon, the Pastel Pearls, and Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper... I cannot decide what is my favorite item.

SAVI Sunday 53 - How To Do Easy Spotlight Card

Welcome to Episode 53 of my YouTube Series... SAVI Sunday (stamping & various inspiration).  You can click the above link to watch my video or see it posted below.  Make sure you are subscribed to my channel while you are watching. 

So my Spotlight card features the below items.  Two I know for sure will be retiring in a few short weeks; True Love Designer Series Paper and the Purple Posy Blends Combo Pack.  But I am in fear of a favorite die set going too... the Well Written Dies.  This die set has 24 dies!  14 of them are words like I am using below.  We will be finding out this week (March 24, 2021) what is retiring from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog so stay tuned.

Let's take a look at my card:

I love a black-n-white design but I think adding just a splash of color adds so much to it.  

Card Details:

  • Basic Black card stock base 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 scored and folded at 4-1/4"
  • True Love DSP cut 4 x 5-1/4"
  • Die cut a square of the DSP any where you would like (just leave a bit for a boarder)
  • Color image with Blends
  • Take next larger square die and cut a piece of Basic Black CS
  • Adhere colored DSP square to above piece of black cardstock
  • Adhere square with Dimensionals
  • Die cut words from Well Written Dies (Make sure to use our Adhesive Sheets!)
  • Adhere to basic white, fussy dies around words & adhere to card front
  • Don't forget some Rhinestones for some bling

I told you this was an easy spotlight card.  Don't you agree?  And the True Love Designer Series Paper is just fantastic for this.  

Don't forget, you can add as much, as little or No color at all and still end up with a beautiful card.

3D Bag - Fine Art Floral

Welcome to my SAVI Sunday 52:  a 3D Bag project today, featuring the Fine Art Floral Suite. 

PicsArt_03-14-04.28.22

For the bag, you will need two sheets of 12 x 12 Designer Series paper.

  • with your design facing upright, score across the top at 3/4, 1-5/8 and 2-5/8"
  • all other sides, score at 2-1/2"
  • do this with both sheets of paper
  • make sure to fold and burnish all your scored lines
  • one sheet:  cut out or eliminate all four corners
  • one the second sheet: 
    • cut out/eliminate both corners with the multiple score lines just as you did on the first sheet. 
    • then, turn your paper so the three score lines are at the top.
    • at the bottom corners, cut on score lines from the sides and miter the cut
    • this will create a tab at the bottom two corners
    • trim those tabs down by half (no precise measurement needed)
  • layer both sheets of paper in front of you, having the design that you want on the outside of your bag facing the table and having the three score lines facing in opposite direction.

Maybe this part will be easier to see on MY VIDEO.  Take a watch.
