Dragonfly Dreams and the Thumping Technique


Hi friends and Happy Long Weekend to you, I have a new share for you today, Dragonfly Dreams and the Thumping Technique.

I guess technically it’s not new, because I found it when I was cleaning my stamp table, haha…it was one of the stamp sets I tried for the recent Stamping Techniques 101 blog hop, but didn’t use (see that post here).

Dragonfly Dreams and the Thumping Technique card by Sandi @ www.stampinwithsandi.com

Sandi’s Tips & Tricks for the Dragonfly Dreams and the Thumping Technique Card:

  • Place the stamp on a handle face up on your worktable.
  • Use the stamps to “thump” the colour onto the stamp
  • Huff on the stamp to moisten the ink
  • Stamp onto a piece of card stock.  My preference is either Shimmery White, or (returning June 1st), Glossy card stock.
  • Die cut the dragonfly with the coordinating thinlits
  • For a dramatic effect – layer onto a black stitched circle

If you have followed me for a while you know that greens and blues are my favourite colours, so guess what I used, haha…..

Dragonfly Dreams and Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits are currently available in the Occasions (spring) catalogue on page 26 as a Bundle to save 10% (link below).

Both items are travelling through to the new catalogue, but not bundled so if they are on your wish list, consider ordering now to enjoy the savings.

Mixed Drinks for Father’s Day


Hi stamping friends, my share today is created with Stampin Up Mixed Drinks for Father’s Day.

Stampin Up Mixed Drinks for Father's day, cards by Sandi @ stampinwithsandi.com

As Father’s Day cards is our challenge this month for the Dream Theme Design Team.

I’m quite excited that the Mixed Drinks stamp set is flowing through to the New Catalogue as I purchased it a bit ago and have not had time to play with it yet…until today of course.

Stampin Up Mixed Drinks for Father's day, cards by Sandi @ stampinwithsandi.com

Sandi’s Tips & Tricks:

Mixed Drinks for Father’s Day – Card #1

  • I decided to make “background noise” or “wallpaper” with the main stamp element to add cohesiveness to the card.
  • I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits for my art piece and mat for a little definition around the main element.
  • Then I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark Ink and Heat set it white embossing powder so that it POPPED off the basic black

TRY – Two Step Stamping – fastest way EVER to fill a beer  haha….

  • Stamp the mug in Basic Black.
  • Stamp the “beer” in Crushed Curry right over the mug to fill it.

Stampin Up Mixed Drinks for Father's day, cards by Sandi @ stampinwithsandi.com

Mixed Drinks for Father’s Day Card #2

  • I used a scrap of the Urban Underground Designer Paper as my background (retiring)
  • Then I embossed a strip of Old Olive with the Sparkle Embossing Folder
  • I Two Step Stamped the Beer mug and then stamped it again so I could cut out just the “foam” for an overlay
  • Try stamping the sentiment in black on a scrap of white card stock and then cutting it apart for some added interest.

Now it’s time to check out what the rest of the design team created, I know you are absolutely going to love the projects these talented ladies have created for you.  Click the Next Button to visit Jennifer Pauli in Germany and if you get lost along the way, here is a complete list of everyone participating.

Colorful Seasons for Mother’s Day


HI stampers, my share today is created with the NEW Stampin Up Colorful Seasons for Mother’s Day, and for a new feature I’m starting here:

Case the Caddy!

There are so many great projects in the Stampin’ Up! Catalogues, why not use them as a source of inspiration!

Sneak Peek! – Colorful Seasons is a stamp set/bundle from the new catalogue, pages 146 and 147.  The suite includes dies, ribbon, glitter enamel dots, amazing designer paper and four great card ideas.  It’s part of our Demonstrator pre-order.

I used the card in the bottom left corner for my inspiration today!

Colorful Seasons for Mother's Day by Sandi @ www.stampinwithsandi.com

Sandi’s Tips & Tricks:

  • After studying the card I wanted to case, I decided to use the Designer paper as an accent and not the main background as I wanted to watercolour the background.
  • I used Berry Burst and Pink Pirouette on Watercolour paper for the background wash.
  • The branch is die cut from Crumb Cake card stock.
  • I used second generation stamping for the flowers in Berry Burst and then cut them out with the coordinating dies.
  • Once I had the whole card together, I splattered it with watered down Berry Burst.
  • Sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.
  • I sliced a strip of the Color Theory Designer Series Paper to highlight my sentiment

Colorful Seasons for Mother's Day by Sandi @ www.stampinwithsandi.com

Colorful Seasons for Mother’s Day Card #1

  • I added some Gold Metallic Thread behind the branch and flowers.
  • and check out the new Glitter Enamel Dots, they rock!…

Colorful Seasons for Mother's Day by Sandi @ www.stampinwithsandi.com

Colorful Seasons for Mother’s Day Card #2

  • I decided to try another one, this time on a Berry Burst card base that was embossed with the Petal Burst embossing folder.
  • and while the stamps are all inked up, why not stamp the envelope to add a little preview of what’s inside. (I splatted it too).

I have another card to share with you tomorrow along with a short video on how I created it.
