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.
