This is a great sketch for mass producing cards and it really appeals to my love of layers!
Now I totally built this card just using some items already on my desk. The DP was sent to me with a card that I got recently. Just two double sided sheets which worked perfect for this. I also had some scraps of black for the mats. The sentiment I had just bought online and cracked it open for this card, and I really like it. I think that’s gonna be on a lot of upcoming cards. The stamp set, another item on my desk is from Stampin Up. I was searching through some piles of die cuts and I thought this was a perfect size for that square. Finally to top it off, some confetti that was loose from another project.
All in all, I think it took maybe less than 10 mins to make this card. So with a great sketch to start off with and like 5 or less supplies….voila…a nice card to send to a friend!
So now that you’ve seen what I’ve done with the sketch, head on over to the blog to see what the rest of the DT has come up with for you to be inspired by!
I picked this one, because it’s so simple and really, you can use just one piece of 6×6 double sided paper and some focal image or embellishment and voila, you are done. You could literally make this in 5 mins!
So this was my first card back in February of last year!
Here’s today’s for you!
So an interesting note. I created the second card first and then went back to find the first one for this post. I was surprised at how similar the two are! 🙂 I used one piece of 6×6 paper that was tucked in with a birthday card that I was given to make this card. I die cut some cardstock circles to match. The sentiment is just from my stash and the vellum leaves are Stampin Up. A few enamel dots and gems from my stash and this is ready to go!
Be sure to head to the blog for the rest of the DT showcases and I can’t wait to see what you create too!
Now winter activities could be anything, skiing, skating, ice fishing, decorating a tree…..but what about Reindeer Games! 🙂
I had this really cute stamp set that I got for an online card class (which surprise, surprise, I’ve not done yet, and it was from last November!), and it’s from Close To My Heart. I thought it would be really fun to do a bit of a different take on the theme. I stamped out the stamp and sentiment using inks from my Tim Holtz Distress inks and some stampin up as well. The DP is from my stash and I die cut a couple of ovals to set off that image a little bit. I added a few iridescent crystals to finish it off.

It’s time for our July challenge at Dragonfly Dreams everyone! Our theme for the month is Indoor Activities/Hobbies.
I was at first stumped at what to do for this one, but then I realized that there is a lot that this could entail….board games, crafting, baking/cooking, watching movies or tv…lots really.
I chose to go with one of my son’s favorite activities…LEGOS! I’m sure a lot of moms can relate!
I have this Stampin Up set called Boys will Be Boys and it was perfect for this one.
I stamped the image in various directions quite a few times and then colored it with some copics just in some basic colors. It’s hard to se but some of them are also highlighted with some Glossy Accents (the ones that look a bit darker 😉 ). A perfect card for that boy in your life.
Make sure you drop by the blog and see the rest of the projects from the DT, they have a great variety for you!
For my card I started with some buffalo plaid from Miss Kate Cuttables and paired it with some green polka dot paper also from MKC and some green foil cardstock. The ornament is from a Stampin Up punch that I cut out about 6x to give it some thickness and height and then added a sentiment from my stash. I hope this inspires you a little bit for your own project and that you will play along with us as well!
So I have been trying to work on some old online card classes that I’ve had sitting here from Scrapbook & Cards Today – the online Crop & Create ones. They pack a lot of punch into those weekends so there are a lot of classes!
I did a Lawn Fawn one, hosted by Jenn Shurkus in the October 2021 event. We got to play with some watercoloring and some fun stamps/dies and stencils from Lawn Fawn of course. These are the Frosties collection.
Now this isn’t the exact card that we made, as I altered it for this challenge, but I really like how it turned out. All those snowflakes and swirls are part of the set we got for the class. The unicorn is a different Lawn Fawn set called Winter Unicorn which I stamped and then colored with some matching Copics. The sentiment is from Stampin Up and then I just added a few enamel dots from my stash.
I hope you like it and don’t forget to stop by the blog so you can play along with us! You can also stop by the SCT blog to find out more about the Online Crop & Create classes (we have another one coming up next weekend and wooweeee..you should see the product we are going to be working with!) by going here.
This one has some great elements and fun layers to play with.
I was in the mood to do a little Halloween today. So just using a variety of papers in my box and pairing it with a cute stamp set from Stampin Up and voila! I added a few enamel stars from my stash as well.
Be sure to stop by the blog and play along with us and don’t forget to leave some love for the rest of the DT.
I’ve been trying to go back and work on some old classes that I purchased from @sctmagazine . This is from I believe the WCD online class from 2017 or 2018. We were creating a card using a @pagemaps sketch and a card created by Allison Okamitsu. @nicepeoplestamp .
Her example was a Christmas card but I decided to go with a birthday one using the Perfect Pairings stamp set from @stampinup along with their Gorgeous Grunge.
I used @ranger_ink distress inks in peacock feathers, twisted citron and picked raspberry for the watercolored background, as well as some @ginakdesigns black onyx ink. The stencil from Stampin Up was paired with some @heidiswapp metallic white texture paste and @studiokatia wedding bells sequins.
It’s been awhile since I did any mixed media cards and this one was super quick and easy to put together.
