Blog Blitz May Release – Dragonfly Greetings | By Laurie Schmidlin

Hi friends!  We have one final post to share with you featuring the brand new May Release!  Today, I’m a project featuring the new Dragonfly Greetings stamp set.  Make sure to leave a comment on this post for a chance to win your very own Dragonfly Greetings stamp set!

Red and aqua are two of my favorite colors!

I really wanted to feature that gorgeous flower from the Dragonfly Greetings stamp set.  I embossed them on red cardstock, die cut them out, and then adhered them in a cluster of three on my card.

And that dragonfly…isn’t it beautiful?!

To create my card, I started by gathering supplies needed for my background.  I used the Peacock Feathers Distress Ink pad (any water soluble ink pad will work), a heavyweight piece of white cardstock, a large acrylic block, and a water spritz bottle.

I started by rubbing my ink pad all over the acrylic block.  I didn’t completely fill it with ink as I wanted there to be some white space.

I then spritzed the acrylic block so that the ink was very wet.

I then put the cardstock down on the acrylic block, pressed it down a bit, and then carefully pull it up.  You can set your paper aside to dry or you can speed it up with a heat tool.

For the flowers, I embossed them in white on red cardstock.

To add a little more depth to the flowers, I did some light shading with a colored pencil.  I then die cut them out using the coordinating Dragonfly Greetings Die Set.


For the dragonfly, I embossed it in white onto white cardstock.  It’s hard to see in the photo, but trust me…it’s there!  🙂  I then started to add some color using a few colored pencils.

After I had it colored , I die cut it out.  I really love the open dies as it makes it easy to line up the stamped image with the die!

For the final step, I embossed the sentiment in black on a small strip of white cardstock.
