I am so excited to share my card for this fortnight’s Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge – I absolutely LOVE this card!
For me, one of the most rewarding things about being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is the friendships I have made over the years and some of the most special are those friendships I have made with my downline team (aka The Craft-T-Crew). This group of ladies is spread far and wide across Australia and a lot of them I have never even met face to face! But I am so grateful to each and everyone of them and love to send them ‘Crew packs’ every quarter. This quarter I made them each a card using not only the sketch for this week but also the NEW stamp set I received as part of the Manager’s Reception this year at Convention called Awesomely Artistic.
As most of you can see I love dragonflies so when this set was handed to me I let out an audible *squeal* and new instantly this would feature for my card to my crew as soon as I arrived home from convention. So with very little delay I arrived home and made this card using a Bermuda Bay card base and the Circle Framelits to create the focal image, it is hard to tell but the background piece is Blackberry Bliss cardstock. I didn’t have any of the new Delight Dijon card stock or DSP which I knew would work with these two colours but I did have some Crushed Curry DSP which was close enough for me.
I only used one stamp set (so unlike me) and embossed my little dragonfly in gold embossing powder, added a little Linen Thread behind him and place him fair in the center of the card.
Here are a few of the cards ready to send out – I really really really loved making them and know my ‘crew’ loved receiving them (thanks for the lovely emails ladies!). I am always excited to add new crew members and share my love of Stampin’ Up! with them …. it is so easy to join and totally worth it! If you are someone who loves to craft Stampin’ Up! may just be for you, contact me and I will be more than happy to have a chat with you about becoming a ‘crew’ member!
