I had some squares of the most gorgeous Designer Series paper left over from a project, and I couldn’t bear to waste them. I lined them up with a dragonfly, and the resulting card is very pretty, if I do say so myself:
- Stamps: Dragonfly Garden, Go To Greetings, Forever Fern
- Color palette: Basic White, Mint Macaron, Soft Succulent, Soft Sea Foam
- Accessories: Big Boss, Deckled Rectangles Dies*, Splendid Day DSP*, Dragonfly Punch, Blending Brushes, 1 1/2″ Metallic Mesh Ribbon, Stampin’ Blends, Stampin’ Dimensionals
*There are a couple of July-December 22 Mini Catalog sneak peeks here, but it’s almost July 1!
The Deckled Rectangle dies are never going to leave my craft desk. I am head-over-heels with these dies! They offer a rustic elegance we haven’t had before, and I am smitten.
A card so nice I made it twice! This one is a little plain, but that’s intentional. It has the potential to be a sympathy card should I need one, so I’ve left it simple and without a greeting.
I made a custom envelope for each card with the DSP on the flap. If you’ve got a few squares of luscious DSP on your craft desk, give this a try – you could substitute for the dragonfly if that’s not part of your stash. The main thing is to have a little fun – and then go shopping HERE.
The July Paper Pumpkin features beautifully designed nautical imagery, a fun message in a bottle motif, and sentiments that are “shore” to please.

It’s LAST CHANCE time for the 2022 January – June Mini catalog, and these incredible deals won’t last! Many dies are 50% off, so do the math: the best deal may not be the bundle, but buying stamps and dies separately. Whatever you do, don’t wait! These deals disappear on June 30.

Good Morning Anne… 🌻
These cards are just stunning. Simple yet stunning. I don’t have this stamp set, but I do have the Dragonfly. I will definitely give this layout a try. Thank you so very much for sharing and I really enjoy receiving your emails. Have a Blessed day. Anne
Thanks so much – a card like this is versatile. I hope you have fun with it!

Thanks, Cheryl, I wanted something sparkly and there it was!
Thanks, Cliffie! Glad you like them.
