I'm back

and loving it... PHEW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! have I been busy the last few weeks. 8 2-layer cakes... 170 actual cake pieces.. That was one heck of a project. Please come back tomorrow to see how these cakes turned out...

In the mean time.. I ordered this dragonfly stamp from Addicted To Scrapbooking and simply adore it.

These 2 cards were used for July Birthday cards and inside is stamped simply with Happy Birthday.

For each of these cards I used... Card Stock.. Aqua Mist & Spring Moss (PTI), whisper white (SUP), Basic Grey or K&Company DS paper Ink... Noir Pallet ink with various copic markers,
Stamp sets.. Sketchbook Dragonfly (Stampendous) & Filigree Fantasy (Verve Visual) Accessories... Water Dew Drops, Ranger Glass Effect Technique.. Paper punch

To make the dragon flies pop off of the page I stamped a 2nd dragonfly image (colored identically as the first) and added the Ranger Glass effects to the wings. When they were completely dry I cut them out and glued them to my original image. When dried I used my bone folder to bend the image off the page ever so slightly. Here's what it looks like from the side image.

These final 2 cards were made with the same materials except I used.. Pewter large eyelets, Spring Moss (PTI) twill ribbon, and stamped Spring Moss around the edges of the dragon fly to distress it. The "sprinkle each day with kindness" sentiment is stamped on the inside of these 2 cards.

I have quite a few projects to show you so please stop back frequently this week. I can't wait to get them posted and for you all to see them.

I hope you all are enjoying your summer as much as I have been.
Happy Stamping :)
edited ... I was asked what type of glue I used to adhere the wings to the card.. I perfer the Scotch Quick Dry Tacky Adhesive.. It definately dries quickly. I pick mine up in my local Wal-Mart.. :)
