5 Minute Monday ~ April 18th


Today's 5 Minute Monday is a quick, easy and beautiful card featuring the Dragonfly Garden Bundle. 

This Gorgeous Bundle includes the stamp set and a punch!

Yep.. again a punch! What's not to love about a punch that allows you to create a beautiful card quickly and easily. 

This stamp set has a couple dragonflies, these lovely weedy looking wildflowers ( I have used this stamp probably more than any other stamp I own ), some nice greetings, and a little flock of tiny dragonflies to compliment the larger ones. 

The dragonfly punch will cut out either of the 2 larger dragonflies included in the stamp set, as well as a tiny dragonfly. 

The Dragonfly Garden Bundle is just an absolutely awesome set to craft with. The creative possibilities are endless ( think dragonflies stamped on Vellum paper. This set will also carry over to the new 2022 Annual catalogue.

If you absolutely love this set ~ wether you love the look of it, or maybe you already have it and are looking for something to compliment it ~ definitely check out Garden Wishes Stamp Set.

Just as beautiful isn't it? Bonus ~ you can get the Garden Wishes Stamp Set right now for $18 during the Last Chance Product Sale. The fonts on the 2 sets match ~ they just belong together. 

So now that we've checked out the Dragonfly Garden Bundle, and the suggested Garden Wishes Stamp Set and it's clearance price, let's get to the card tutorial.

Let's talk about "Wink of Stella" for a minute...
Wink of Stella is a like a magic wand, it's like a tube filled with magic glitter. It's exactly that! It's like a water pen with a brush on the end that allows you to apply glitter wherever you would like on your card! It's a must have in your craft corner! 
So many cards become absolutely stunning with Wink of Stella.
