Carried Away...for Free!

Here's a simple-but-effective design that could easily be replicated using any Designer Series Paper and co-ordionating stamp set. I've used the Sale-a-Bration paper Carried Away (available free with a $90 purchase until March 31) and co-ordinating Lift Me Up stamp set (from the Occasions Catalogue).
You might have spotted the Stitched Shapes framelits on this card. Good news! After being sold out for the last couple of months, these are now available to order :)

Dragonfly Sparkle

I love the dreamy quality of this card. I've used the pretty pink bokeh effect paper from the Falling in Love DSP, and accentuated the bokeh effect around the edges using the stamp from Dragonfly Dreams.
A strip of the semi-transparent glassine paper anchors my sentiment, without being too dominating.
The dragonflies are all sparkly, having been cut from Glimmer paper, and there is also sparkle on the words, applied with a bit of fine tip glue and some Dazzling Diamonds glitter.

Sweet Sugarplum Dragonfly

I made this card for a couple of special birthdays last month. I had fun playing with lots of layers and textures on this one! Because there's lots going on, I kept the colour scheme very simple - just Sweet Sugarplum and Whisper White.
I layered a vellum die-cut dragonfly over a stamped dragonfly. I used Multipurpose glue to adhere my vellum. If you blot it with a sponge before sticking, your adhesive won't show.

Up & Away 8th Birthday

Playing with new products always helps to kick-start my stamping mojo. Unfortunately with Christmas, New Year and school holidays, I haven't been at my stamp desk nearly enough....I'm hoping to remedy that soon!
I made a couple of these cards, in 2 different colourways for my twin niece's 8th birthdays and they came together so quickly. There's a bit of die cutting, but very little stamping just looks like I have, thanks to that amazing new Designer Series Paper!
The large numbers dies are such a worthwhile investment. I pull mine out all the time for birthdays and anniversaries.
