I recently polled my Luv 2 Stamp Group of demonstrators to ask what they thought would be the #1 seller in the new 2017 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog, and the majority said Dragonfly Dreams / Detailed Dragonfly thinlits would be the #1 seller!  What do you think? Is it tops on YOUR Wish List?

I paired the Dragonfly bundle (see it HERE) or on page 26 in the Occasions catalog, with some products from page 9.  I used the Cupcakes & Carousels paper for a background as well as the accent strip, and then I used several items from the Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment kit to finish the card!

 

Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment kit and designer paper stack from Stampin' Up! creates a great background for my Detailed Dragonfly card!

 

Isn't this a neat embellishment kit? I used the labels, the ribbon, and the sequins from the kit on this card!

I stamped Hello Friend in Calypso Coral ink on the label using the Everyday Tags stamp set, pg 41.

As you can see, I've layered the dragonfly with a die cut vellum dragonfly.  I used Multipurpose glue on the body to adhere the 2 layers together.

 My inspiration came from the card on page 26 in the Occasions catalog.

It's difficult to see in the photos but I used Clear Wink of Stella on the colored die cut butterfly for a little shimmer!

I used my Memento Black ink pad to stamp the dragonfly onto one of the printed patterns in the Cupcakes and Carousels paper stack, then the matching die cut to easily cut them all out.

After die cutting I decided I needed them to have a little bit of the Calypso Coral color from the ribbon, so I sponged some Calypso Coral ink onto the dragonfly before adhering the vellum die cut.
