Detailed Dragonfly faux stained glass card

 

Taking a little break from fall and holiday card ideas today... and I am excited to share this beautiful Detailed Dragonfly card with you!!  I received a similar card from Dyantha, one of the demonstrators in my Luv 2 Stamp Group, and I changed it up a bit and created this card!  I am calling it "faux stained glass" because it kind of looks like stained glass behind the dragonfly die cut!!

 

Detailed Dragonfly "faux stained glass" card featuring Stampin' Up! Naturally Eclectic designer paper, Touches of Texture and Ribbon of Courage stamp sets, by Patty Bennett

 

This is a very easy card to make, here are the details:

  • Card base: Rich Razzleberry cardstock, 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", folded in 1/2
  • Mat layer: Sweet Sugarplum cardstock, 4" x 5-1/4"
  • White layer: 3-3/4" x 5" with a Detailed Dragonfly die cut in the center. Stamp with Sweet Sugarplum ink and Touches of Texture "lace" stamp, and faith sentiment from the Ribbon of Courage set
  • Naturally Eclectic patterned paper: 3-1/2" x 4"
  • Sponge Wink of Stella onto dragonfly (see below)
  • Embellishments: White Perfect Accents

Fb live with patty bennettDid you happen to watch my Facebook Live video where I was sharing this card?  (SEE IT HERE).  I was asking if I should sponge the dragonfly or not.. and several viewers suggested sponging the dragonfly with Wink of Stella instead of an ink color.. so even though it's hard to see in these photos, that's what I did and they are lovely in person!!

 

Sponge Wink of Stella onto Detailed Dragonfly die cuts.  Squeeze Wink of Stella onto silicone mat, pick up glimmer with Stampin' Sponge and sponge onto dragonfly.

 

TIP!  Sponge Wink of Stella onto the dragonfly for some glimmer!!

TIP!  Put 3 mini Stampin' Dimesionals behind the dragonfly body.. perfect size!!

As you can see, they all come out differently depending on the piece of Naturally Eclectic paper you add behind the opening!

What a great tip Patty! I love how the different colors peek through the dragonfly wings almost like real stained glass. I can't wait to try that myself! Those little cards turned out really pretty.

This is an awesome looking dragon fly. I have enjoyed working with this set. I am pleased to see what you have done with it.

Actually, I am enjoying seeing a different card. It seems everyone is posting ideas from just several of the recent sets of stamps. It is refreshing to see a past stamp set.
