ICS BLOG HOP-DRAGONFLY DREAMS



This month on the Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop we have a color challenge!!! We could use only the 3 colors below (with a spattering of black or white!). This was a real challenge for me! These colors are beautiful together, but I wouldn't have chosen them to use together. Plus, I haven't stocked up on embellishments in all the new colors yet!!  I always enjoy a challenge though! And I like this one!!!

Here is the color challenge:

Here is my card:


I am on a kick with this particular "fancy fold" cards lately! I think they add just a little extra fun!! I was randomly going through my stamps & decided to use the Dragonfly Dreams! It's such a pretty stamp set-especially when you can combine it with the Dragonfly Detail Thinlet Dies!! 

The embossing on the front is the beautiful Layered Leaves. I thought it would be appropriate that the dragonfly needs leaves to land on! lol  That dragonfly was cut first with the solid Blackberry Bliss, then the detailed over piece was cut from the Vellum Card stock & colored on the back with the                 Stampin' Markers! I just finished it off with some Basic Rhinestone Jewels!  I even added some fun to the inside! I love how the big dragonfly is "peeking" over the top!


This 3-fold card is kind of fun! In fact, you get 2 cards from 1 sheet of card stock! Just like when making regular cards!!  You can use them either portrait or landscape orientation Here is the other one I did.



I kept with the same color scheme.  The little kangaroo from the             Animal Outing stamp set set was colored with the Blackberry Bliss ink pad & the Aqua Painter, but the color didn't carry over like I'd hoped. It's a bit pink! I actually double checked the ink pad to be sure it was the correct color! lol But still a cute card!  Simple cards but cute to give to a friend!

So now hop over to Ginger's blog & enjoy her creation! Click on her name or the icon below!!! Then keep going! Lots to see using these 3 cool colors-all returning In-Colors I might add!!!

Happy Stampin'!
