I used the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Dreams and Awesomely Artistic stamp sets to create my card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop today. We’ve got a sketch challenge this week and this is what I created for it.
Here is the sketch that we’re using this week:
I started by inking the dragonfly image from the Awesomely Artistic stamp set in Smoky Slate ink, stamping it on scrap paper and then stamping it on a panel of Whisper White card stock. I repeated that process across the entire panel and then adhered the stamped panel to a larger panel of Whisper White card stock with SNAIL.
I adhered a panel from the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate to the larger Whisper White card stock panel with SNAIL (hidden under the Silver Foil band). I adhered a strip from the Silver Foil Sheets over the seam in the papers with SNAIL and then adhered the layered panel to a Thick Whisper White card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set in VersaMark ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock, sprinkled it with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it. I cut the sentiment out with a Stitched Shapes Framelits die and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set in VersaMark ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it. I cut the image out with the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Die and then adhered it to the card front with Glue Dots. I added a single gold enamel dot from the Metallic Enamel Shapes pack to finish the card front.
I stamped the dragonfly image from the Awesomely Artistic stamp set in Smoky Slate ink across a panel of Whisper White card stock inside the card.

Your card is beautiful Amy! I love how the smoky slate looks almost silver, and I thought at first that the foil strip was ribbon. I think this card would also make a gorgeous sympathy card, as it’s so soft and elegant.
Thanks Deepa, you are right…it would be a perfect sympathy card! 🙂
I never tire of seeing this dragonfly. What a pretty card!
Thanks so much Melanie! 🙂
