Dragonfly Dreams Meets Star of Light

Hi Everyone,

If your anything like me then you are always looking for new ways to use stamp sets, I think this is particularly true for the Christmas themed sets which don’t get all year round use. Star of Light is a great example of a Christmas themed stamp set which can easily be used anytime of year and stars are a fairly versatile image.

For today’s card I took the large swirl stamp which is my favourite from this set and combined it with stamps from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set.

Here is the card I came up with:

I chose to use Smoky Slate for the swirls and the little stars, which also come from the Star of Light set as I wanted to keep the background fairly pale.

I stamped the dragonfly wings with Wisteria Wonder and then stamped the whole dragonfly outline in Perfect Plum.

I added a greeting in the bottom left corner in Perfect Plum again and the card is done, quick simple and lovely.

Hope you like this card, do you have any more ideas for the Star of Light set?

Spring Coloured card with Falling for You

Today’s card was originally created as part of a colour challenge on a blog, sadly I only wrote down the colours and not the blog details so can’t enter properly. The colours for the challenge were Pear Pizzazz, Wisteria Wonder and So Saffron, if anyone knows what blog challenge this was from please leave me a comment below. So here’s my spring looking card:

Sadly the stamp set Falling for You which I used here has not made it into our next Annual catalogue and is on the retiring list. At the time of writing this its still available so if you want it, don’t wait as its a great stamp set.

I was going for a simple look with this card but think the Wisteria Wonder strips at the bottom would maybe have been better only going a little way across the card. I wanted somewhere to anchor my greeting panel too but think its given the card a harsh look, what do you think?

Anyway hopefully I will have time to play with this set again before its completely gone.
