Stampin Up Dragonfly Dreams Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today we had a sketch challenge and I am using a new set from the Occasions Catalog today for my share.  The new catalog is full of wonderful new products and today’s card is from the stamp set Dragonfly Dreams. I also used the Joseph Coat technique.  I am overjoyed with how the color came through on the dragonflies.


Here is the sketch:

Here is the card recipe:

Card base: Basic Black 5-1/2 x 8-1/2, scored at 4-1/4

Mat: Flirty Flamingo 3-7/8 x 5-1/2

Mat: Whisper White 3-5/8 x 5-1/2

Art Piece: Shimmery White  3-1/2 x 5-1/2

Circles: Scallop circle, Flirty Flaming  2-3/4. White circle 2-5/8  (both cut from the layering circle framelits)

The Joseph Coat technique is wonderful.

  • using your sponge daubers sponge random circles on the shimmery white cardstock using Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry and Flirty Flaming ink
  • ink your dragonfly stamp with vera mark ink and randomly ink the front of the card
  • dust with clear embossing power and heat set with your heat tool
  • taking a sponge and tuxedo black ink, sponge over the entire card.  Because you have the embossed dragonflies, the ink will not stick to them.  When you are done, take a paper tower and just wipe any excess ink off your stamped image.  Voila you are done.  Sandi McIver taught me this technique and you can see her card here to learn more about this technique.
