DOStamper STARS Thursday Challenge #227: Sketch Pad Challenge featuring Dragonfly Dreams

Welcome to this weeks DOStamper Stars Thursday Sketch Pad Challenge.  I have been absent for several weeks and it feels good to get back into card making with the STARS.  This week my card is featuring the beautiful Dragonfly Dreams stamp set.  The dragonfly is stamped onto vellum and embossed with clear powder, a technique I just learned about.  The background behind the dragonfly is stamped onto white cardstock that is overlayed with the embossed vellum.

  • Start with 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Basic Black cardstock folded in half for card base
  • Stamped a piece of 3 3/4 x 4 Vellum with Crushed Curry ink and embossed with Clear Emboss Powder (Thanks, Miriam Bollanger for the tip)
  • Use the background stamp and Crushed Curry ink to randomly stamp 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 Whisper White cardstock.  Be careful to stay at least a half inch from edges of paper.
  • Use Fast Fuse to attach embossed vellum to the Whisper White cardstock (apply adhesive to corners only).
  • Attach 1/2 inch Crushed Curry strips to sides and overlap with 3/4 inch Basic Black strips
  • Stamp sentiment in Basic Black Archival ink attach with Stampin Dimensionals.
  • Add favorite flowers, I chose Petite Petals and enamel dots for embellishments.  
  • Use Tombow Multipurpose glue to adhere layer to card base   All done!!
