The Challenge at Allsorts #562, is to create something with wings. I thought of this Stampin’ Up! set called “Dragonfly dreams” which I haven’t had a chance to try yet. At the Joy of Sets, the Tic Tac Toe direction I chose was to use silver, weather, and paper piecing. CAS(E) this sketch provided the layout idea for this card as well.
I die cut the dragonflies out of silver first, then again out of purple using painters tape to keep all the pieces in place.
I glued the silver dragonflies onto white paper, and then carefully glued each wing piece of purple into the holes. paper piecing is like a puzzle and I find it fun. I ran the whole thing through the embossing machine to give it texture, and lastly; I found the sentiment “Sending Springtime” for the weather part of the challenge.
This next card was made for a sweet neighbor who just lost his dog to cancer. They walked three times a day and would stop and greet everyone. The dog was part pit bull and his name was Bruce. He was an absolute love, and will be greatly missed.
