Floral Dragonfly

Hi Bloggers.

I have lots of new products in my Amazon Store. Please see this post if you're interested.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I first stamped the Ivy Corner in each corner of a piece of Coconut White Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I then ran it through the Grand Calibur with one of Sue's new A4 Embossing Folders called Quilted Flower. I inked around the edges with Scattered Straw Distress Ink.

 I stamped the Floral Dragonfly using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I coloured in the flowers on the dragonfly using a little Cosmic Shimmer Ink Spray Mist in Buttercup, and the little leaves using a little Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Ink Spray Mist in Soft Moss.

I cut it out using Sue's Decorative Frames from the Italian Collection and inked through the die with Scattered Straw. I cut the largest die from the Tuscany Die Set (again from the Italian Collection) out of Custard Card and inked through the die with Scattered Straw.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of Champagne Silky Crush Ribbon. I popped a little Cosmic Shimmer Vanilla Pastel PVA onto my Craft Sheet, added a little water and painted it onto a Fancy Pearl Embellishment to change the colour slightly.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Cream Pearls in the corners and some dots of Vanilla Pastel PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.

  24. Hi Julia
    a lovely ca4d today, especially the embossing folder and the colours used. sue's new collection of dies are fantastic. As Patricia says you are mentioning Sue new embossing folders, but no information of when we might be seeing these. So I'm off to investigate as well.

  27. Love the card Julia, but I don't have the dragonfly stamp. What I do have, is a dragonfly die (courtesy of Sue's big Candy Prize!) So I could do something similar, but not the same.

  29. Hi Julia,
    Managed to watch one Show last night before I had to give in and go to bed! Just tired from travelling and the one hour difference in time! It must be old age or something!
    You had prepared some lovely cards and it would be lovely to see more time spent showing them! After all it is a lot of work!
    I really like today's card and it may even work with the butterfly stamp I have. I do like champagne ribbon! I think it is such an elegant colour! Not sure that makes sense - but I know what I mean!
    Have a lovely weekend,
    Love Myra

  32. The detail on the dragonfly escaped me at first until I saw the close up picture Julia. Lovely card. I must look out for Sue's embossing folder to get a good look at the pattern, best wishes Jackie D

Thanks for all your very hard work and so glad you manage to get yet more demoinh on tv. now. I really admire you in not getting flustered as I'm sure I would. Look forward to all your shows and my recording facility is full of them which I often refer back to. Take care and don't work too hard. sincerely Maureen

  37. Such a gorgeous card tho not sure of dragonfly as I don't like insects. Maybe if they all looked this beautiful I would feel better.
