Dreamy Dragonfly Wedding Card
Today I have a very simple but elegant wedding card to share with you. The sentiment is from Flourishing Phrases and was embossed in silver and the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlit was used with white card stock and is accented with silver foil paper. I used Pretty Paisleys Textured Embossing Folder as the border.
Stampin’ Up’s Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits are available from the 2017 Occasions Catalog and can be purchased from my store. The thinlits are available separately or as a bundle with the coordinating stamp set, Dragonfly Dreams, and can be purchased at a 10% discount here.
If you do not already have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I would be honored and delighted if you would choose me. Thanks for stopping by today!
I started my day off really early today, at 4:30 a.m., after tossing and turning for at least an hour. I decided to get up, make a pot of coffee and work on the color challenge offered by Global Design Project.
I made a similar card several months ago using the Flourish Thinlits and have never shared it online, so I remade it with the challenge colors and I like it better than the original. The sentiment is from Watercolor Wishes which is sold as a bundle with a wonderful card kit that I just love. If you need a quick but beautiful card, check into that bundle. The product picture below will take you directly to my store where you can shop to your heart’s content.
There are so many great products available from Stampin’ Up! and because I’m a full-time demonstrator, I get to play with those products every day. It just doesn’t get much better than that!! Join my Stampin’ Up! team and you can have a fun job too! I set my own hours, work at my own pace and hold classes with the most incredible people on earth- my wonderful customers whom I LOVE!! I am blessed every single day because of a decision I made 15 years ago to become a demonstrator.
If you’d like to have that kind of job and would like to join my team, you can do so here, by clicking on “Join the fun” in the upper right corner.
I’m so glad you stopped by today!

Beautiful bright colors are what I love, so that’s what I used on this card which was made with the Flourish Thinlits. The colors are Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive and Whisper White. If you are a new stamper, or are just getting started with Stampin’ Up! products, you might be wondering…
Which color family should I start with?
That’s a question I am often asked when someone discovers the joy of creating with Stampin’ Up! products. And my answer always comes in the form of a question. Which colors are you most drawn to? You can usually look at your wardrobe to figure that out. We buy clothing in colors that we are comfortable in and that we look good in. For me, the “Bright” colors are what I love the most.
What should my first Stampin’ Up! order consist of?
Start with an assortment of ink pads in the color family that you love, plus black, which is a staple color that you cannot do without. The Stampin’ Up! color families are Brights, Regals, Subtles & Neutrals. Purchase an ink pad family as an assortment and you save money, essentially getting one pad free. Then add an assorted pack of card stock in the same color family, plus Whisper White, another staple item. Finally, choose a stamp set that you love and assuming you already own scissors, glue and a paper trimmer, you’ll be set to go!
What are the differences between photopolymer, clear mount and wood mount stamps?
If you have the 2016-17 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog, there is a good explanation on page 2, but if you don’t have a catalog handy, here’s an explanation.
Classic red rubber is available as:
- a clear mount option, meaning that you will need to mount the stamp onto a reusable clear block (sold separately).
- a wood-mount option which means your stamps will each have their own maple wood block. Mount them once and they’re always ready to go!
Photopolymer is a clear, see-through option which you will need to mount onto a reusable clear block (sold separately). They are generally the least expensive option.
I must admit that you’ll eventually want all of the Stampin’ Up! colors because they work beautifully together with hundreds of different combinations. You can mix & match colors at SU Colorlabs, here. Head on over there and see which combinations inspire you!
I hope you stamp today…
