Dragonfly Cards with Erika!

Erika General

Hey guys!! Erika here today with a blog takeover!! When the Just a Note Collection hit the shop, I was stoked to grab the Flight of the Dragonfly Stamp Set and Die and get into my crafty space. I am a big dragonfly fan as they bring me happy memories of fishing with my dad or time spent along the James and York Rivers.

I like to get started by finding a color combo and I wanted to integrate Martini and Uptown since they felt like dragonfly colors for sure. I pulled together a few other colors to create a rainbow and mixed in some muted Spa shades with my Luxe Colors.

I stamped out a bunch of the dragonflies in black and then with my blender pens, colored them in in various ways sticking to my ink combo. I love how the one dragonfly's wings look a bit like stained glass. I cut them all out and then got started playing with layout.

The sentiments in the Flight of the Dragonfly Stamp Set and the Handwritten Thanks all mix and match so well. I went from very clean and simple to creating this wild background using the wonky dot stamps in the set. The Notecard Bubble Frame Dies added a little extra something for this card.

These were all so fun to make!! Which is your favorite? I hope you will take inspo from my cards or color combo and share what you create!!
