Stampin' Up! Detailed Dragonfly

Stampin' Up! In colours are trendy, in fashion and five change each year.  To show case the five 2016-18 colours for catalogue launch, I decided to employ four die sets - the Detailed Dragonfly (142749), the Stitched Shapes (145372), Laying Squares (141708)  and Flourish Thinlits (141478) for the leaf.

By mounting one colour on top of another and slightly offsetting the two, the die cuts really pop!

The look great!  I hope these creations inspire you to create and give a set of KISS cards, colour coordinated in a manner that suits you.  Thank you for stopping by and I look forward to your company at the next post.

Stampin' Up! Special Reason catalogue CASE

Special Reason is a lovely stamp and die set released by Stampin' Up! and is great to use with the rock and Roll technique.   I CASED the layout on the bag for their class project...

On a base of Always Artichoke embossed with Seaside (141481) TIEF, the layer of rock and roll stamped flowers and die cut flowers and leaves were assembled on a Banner cut piece of So Saffron embossed with Hexagons Dynamic (143231) TIEF.

 Caujan Craze, love this colour as a card base and instead of  embossing the card base, I sponged it in Old Olive.  The banner was still embossed and the Stamped flowers and leaves were created using the Rock and Roll technique...

Stampin' Up! create a beautiful catalogue and ideas book.  It has always contained many layouts that can be transferred from boxes to cards to scrapbook pages as vice versa.  I love my catalogues and refer to them for ideas constantly.
