Dragonfly Dreams

Dragonflies are my favorite insect.  I have one tattooed on my shoulder and own many pieces of jewelry that depict them.  To me, the dragonfly represents light and joy.  
I stamped the detailed dragonfly image on velum and then added color with the write and stamp markers.  I used the Stamping' Up! Multipurpose Liquid glue and Stamping' Sponges to adhere the velum to a piece of whisper white card stock.  The finishing touch is the delicate Lace Doily available in the Stamping' Up! Occasions Catalog.  Don't have yours yet?  Contact me, right away!
This beauty is the image in the Dragonfly Dreams set.  It includes a two step dragonfly and bumble bee.  Detailed Dragonfly thinly set will bring the insects to life on your projects!

Candy Lane Designer Series Paper

If I was a gingerbread kid I'd move into this sweet little house!  Use the Pine Bough Texture Folder on a 2 1/2" x 4" piece of Crumb Cake paper.  Adhere it with some snail adhesive  on to another piece of  81/2" x 41/4" of Crumb Cake folded in half.  I cut the little house out of the Candy Cane Lane Designer Paper (Don't miss out on getting yours FREE during the Buy 3 get 1 Free until the end of the month) and added it to Real Read (3 1/2"x3") and Whisper White (3"x 2 3/4") Cardstock.  The sweet sentiment comes from the Candy Cane Christmas stamp set.  Just think how easy it would be to send these out for your Christmas cards!

Owl Builder Spinner Card

What has this owl's eyes all wiggly?  She is dizzy with excitement!  Build a spinner card with the Owl Builder punch and your scraps!.  To create the track for the owl to sit in, I used the Classic Label Punch.  I lined it up on the bottom of a piece of 3 3/4" x 5" piece of Affectionately Yours Designer Paper and punched twice.  Then create your owl.  on the back of the owl adhere a penny using Fast Fuse.  Use a dimensional to adhere a second penny to the first.  Slip the pennies between the track.  I found using dimentionals on the corners of the 3 3/4" x 5" allows the pennies more room to spin! What other things can you put a spin on?  Contact me and I'll share my ideas with you:
