Got some fantastic sample swap cards using the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and coordinating Thinlets this week... Can't wait to recreate some of these techniques in my own stamp room! I LOVE how the scored lines on the back side of this card background have been sponged to create an almost velvet-feel.
Dragonfly Dreams is another case where you don't HAVE to have both the stamp set AND the die-cuts in order to use them effectively. But it is cool that they all coordinate so well! The multiple-dragonflies die-cut below is my personal favorite from the set of five Thinlets.
As you can see from these four different cards, it's really cool how it looks totally different depending on what colors and textures you pair with the images... you can go super-realistic, with nature colors and patterns, or totally elegant and formal, with metallics and regal tones. Way more versatile than I thought it was!
Thanks for my fellow Stampin' Up demonstrators for sharing their samples with me, so I can share them with YOU! What Spring 2017 Catalog products would you like me to showcase next? Chances are I have something in my sample basket you're waiting to read about!
Leave me a comment and let me know what stamp set or accessory is making you curious. I'll answer everything I can!
