Sneak Peek: Falling in Love with Dragonfly Dreams for Freshly Made Sketches

This week, I promised you some sneak peeks from the new Occasions Catalogue and I picked some of my very favourites for this one! My favourite Designer Series paper, Falling in Love**, one of my favourite stamp sets ( there are too many great ones to have just one favourite), Dragonfly Dreams**, and one of my favourite thinlit sets (again, too many good ones to choose), Detailed Dragonfly Thinlit Dies**.

**New Products from the new 2017 Occasions Catalogue, available Jan, 4, 2017.

I used the sketch from the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge this week for my layout:

Take a close up look at all those delicious new products:

  • First of all, feast your eyes on that beautiful, bokeh design with some photorealistic paper! It's a must have! Falling in Love** - Remember that name!
  • The dragonflies have all been diecut using the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies**. If you love dragonflies like I do, you're going to want these! The little ones actually come in a chain of five but I cut off two of them to fit the sketch and the card size.
  • The large butterfly could have been two-step stamped but I chose to stamp the base for a little more colour in the card and overlay the diecut details in Silver Foil Sheet. I used The Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set** to stamp the wings. I actually did my own 3 step stamping. I first stamped a base in Pink Pirouette. Then, I cleaned my stamp and inked up the edges as with the rock and roll technique using Soft Sky ink and stamped over the image. Finally, I inked up the inside edges with Bermuda Bay and restamped again. I used the outline framelit from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlit set** to die cut it and then placed the detailed dragonfly die cut overtop. 
  • Some Rhinestone Basic Jewels added to the sparkles of the card, and some beautiful Very Vanilla 1/4" Satin Ribbon** was the dividing line between the top and bottom of the sketch.
