SUO129 Awesomely Artistic Dragonfly Summer



Hi Stampers!   

It’s time for the new SUO129 “Cards without Words” Challenge-create a card without a sentiment on the front that could be used for a note...

I decided to pull out two of my favorite new sets, Awesomely Artistic and Butterfly Basics along with the CCMC368 Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge.

I hope you will have a chance to check out my sister Design Team member samples- we are welcoming Cindee Wilkinson to the SUO Challenges team this week- woohoo!! 

Also, I hope you will find time to visit the Create with Connie and Mary site- they always have fabulous inspiration as well!

This card was fairly simple to create:

Ink the fern image from Butterfly Basics using Cucumber Crush Classic Ink and stamp repeatedly onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.

Ink the splatter image from Awesomely Artistic using Tangerine Tango Classic Ink and add a bit of splatter around the panel.

Ink the dragonfly image using Pacific Point Classic Ink and stamp one image onto the main panel and three images onto another piece of Whisper White cardstock.

“Fussy-cut” two of the dragonflies completely and add to the card panel.

“Fussy-cut” just the wings of the third dragonfly and add to the stamped dragonfly on the panel, apply Two-Way Glue to the wings of all three dragonflies and Dazzling  Diamond glitter.

Stamp the border image from Awesomely Artistic using Pacific Point  Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto Pacific Point cardstock and add a scrap strip of Tangerine Tango cardstock to the center.

Trim the entire  panel and mount onto Pacific Point cardstock, trim and mount onto the Whisper White card base.

Use a Sponge Dauber to apply a bit of Cucumber Crush Classic Ink around the ferns.

Create a bow using the Bow Builder Punch from Tangerine Tango cardstock, adhere to the card front and add the Antique Brad to the center to finish off the card.
Stamp Sets:  Awesomely Artistic, Butterfly Basics
Ink: Cucumber Crush, Tangerine Tango
Paper/Cardstock: Whisper White, Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango
Accessories: Sponge Dauber, Bow Builder Punch, Antique Brad, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter

So creative to do the dragonflies in Pacific Point, and it totally works! Great job balancing these really bright colors. Your card is beautiful! Thank you for joining us at Create with Connie and Mary!

A work of art as always! The sponging around the ferns give them a woodsy look for lack of a better word. I also think the trio of dragonflies is beautiful - so sparkly and vibrant. Thanks for playing along with us this week at Create with Connie and Mary.

Oh, those beautiful blue dragonflies among the ferns give such a calm and cool-looking feel to your scene. I like how the light tangerine sprinkles add depth to the card also! So lovely! Thanks for joining us this week for the challenge at Create with Connie and Mary!

Your card is SO gorgeous! I love the intense colors...like in the jungle! Love the bow element, too! Thanks for playing along with the color challenge this week on Create with Connie and Mary (and of course, the SUO Challenge, too!)

What a great card - these colours look cool yet vibrant the way you've used them on your card Julie and this is a great example of a card where a sentiment is not always necessary. Thanks for joining us over at Create With Connie and Mary this week!

Mary Brown said...

What a fabulous card Julie! I love how that orange bow, just pops on there! As always your composition is 'spot on'! Thanks for playing along this week in the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!

Oooh, aaah! Those dragonflies are so pretty in Pacific Point! They look wonderful against the fern background and the bow with the antique brad is the icing on the cake! Thanks for playing with us at Create with Connie and Mary!
