Dragonfly Dreams

Lisa Henderson demonstrator Dragonfly Dreams paper Stampin' Up! stamps swaps

Hello Everyone!

Today I wanted to show you a set that I absolutely love--but everyone else likes to show you the dragonfly, and I love the bee!  My grandfather was a beekeeper, and he and my grandmother ran Stevenson's Apiary together.  My Uncle now currently runs the business, and lets just say that my family collects bee related items!  I remember going with my grandfather when I was little to check on the bees.  We played nearby, while he worked, and there was usually some sort of treat afterwards (cough *ice cream* cough).  Needless to say, bees were a pretty big part of our life growing up!

So when it came time to make my swap cards for OnStage, I looked at the carry over list, and immediately chose to use the bee from the Dragonfly Dreams set.  Because I was making somewhere around 40 of them, I didn't want anything too complicated, but I did want something that still stood out.  So I did this fancifold card:

To start, cut the Basic Gray Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11.  Score it a 2 3/4" in from each end to create a  gate fold card, adhere a piece of whisper white cardstock that is 4 x 5 1/4 inside and set aside.

Take a piece of 4 x 5 1/4" delightful dijon cardstock and run through the big shot using the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, and set aside.

Take a piece of Whisper White Cardstock 2 5/8 x 4".  Stamp the sentiment and the Bee body in Basic Black.  Stamp the inside of the bee in Delightful Dijon.  Stamp the Bokeh in Smoky Slate. 

Take a piece of the Urban Underground Dark cardstock that is approx. 2 7/8 x 4 1/4 and adhere the stamped piece of Whisper White.  Adhere with dimensionals to the Delightful Dijon piece.  Adhere the left side only to the Basic Grey base.

I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial!  I will be back tomorrow to show you swaps for this set!
