Part of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator is we have access to a wonderful place called Stampin' Connection. It's an online resource for swapping, card ideas, and much more. A nice Demo named Stacey Lisk had offered a swap a while back when the annual convention was in Salt Lake City and I participated in her WOW swap. Well she was nice enough to invite me back to her Occasions Catalog Swap via the mail this month. These are my original design cards that I submitted.
Here's the simple list of products used:
With these two dragonfly cards, I used similar products on both, but the look is so different. Love them both.
The technique piece to this card is I used the aqua painter to paint Tempting Turquoise ink and Pear Pizzazz ink on the Whisper White cardstock that is going behind the wings. When that was dry, I used the gold Wink of Stella pen to put some splooshs all over to give it some sparkle! Then I used the Big Shot to cut the Whisper White out with the thinlits. Finally, I used the Fine-tip Glue pen very carefully to glue the gold and white layers together. I weighted them down with a clear block to dry for 5-10 minutes before attaching to the card front. I did the same with the gold Wink of Stella on the smaller dragonflies that were fussy cut from the group of 5 that the thinlits make.
I hope you are inspired to try some of these new products from the Spring Occasional Catalog. There are lots of wonderful new products there!
