do dragonflies actually buzz...... HMM.... I simply adore dragonflies so when I found this paper in my LSS I just had to grab a piece.. And knew exactly what I'd be doing with it... A fall dragonfly.. A wonderful thing about these little critters is that like butterflies they come in a multi-tude of colors.

For this card I tried something a little different. The "Gate fold".. I have to say I just adore how it came out.

Making your butterflies, dragonflies or for that matter any flying critter jump off the page is so easy to do.. I stamp my image directly on my cardstock. I then restamp the image on a scrap piece of the same card stock... Color both images identically.. Then on my scrap image I cover with my glassy glaze (which ever brand I'm using at the moment whether it's SUP, Ranger etc). Once dried I take my cheap little mini scissors and start cutting. Once it's completely cut out, suing my bone folder I hold down the center of the dragonfly and then using another bone folder fold the wings up a bit. Add a little 3-m glue and viola' your dragonfly is on the move..
Have a wonderful Sunday everyone. Here's hoping that Hannah has moved off of the east coast and maybe today we'll have a little sunshine. Yesterday was grey skies, wind and rain so I spent the day lounging, watching tv, doing laundry... made a big'ole batch of soup and played around in my stamp room just a bit..
Happy Stamping !!
