Ink. Stamp. Share. Monthly December Blog Hop New Catalogs

Welcome to the Ink. Stamp Share. December Monthly Blog Hop as we celebrate the New Year and the new January-June 2021 Mini Catalog and 2021 Sale-a-bration Catalog. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their projects to help you get excited for the New Year. 
Today I have created a card using products from the new Dandy Garden Suite from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. I love the way these products coordinate and for this card I chose to use the Dragonfly Garden Bundle with the Dandy Garden 6"x6" Designer Series Paper to create this beautiful design. This layout is not something I would have normally tried, but during our recent OnStage @ Home event, we had the opportunity to create several cards with this suite and this was one of the layouts presented. I made a few small changes to the original to make it my own and I love how it turned out.

This clean and simple card design is easy to assemble and has just a few basic steps to follow. I stamped the images from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set onto the Smoky Slate cardstock with Mossy Meadow Classic ink. The next step is to layer the 3 designer series paper squares and attach them to the Smoky Slate cardstock layer with adhesive, overlapping the tall daisy stamped image. Using the Dragonflies Punch, I punched out 3 of the small dragonflies from Whisper White cardstock and attached them to the designer series paper squares using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. To complete the card design, I tied a piece of the Mossy Meadow Braided Trim around the center of the Smoky Slate cardstock layer and added a bow that I tied from the same trim and added with a Mini Glue Dot. To finish the card I attached the card front to the card base with adhesive. I love the color and texture that the designer series paper adds to the card design and the small dragonflies are the perfect embellishment. With the variety of designs in this paper pack, you can create a variety of card designs that work for all occasions.
