Dragonfly Feathers

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

I'm joining Darnell's I.D.E.A.S. today using embossing folders
as my inspiration.

I do love these 3D embossing folders! Who am I kidding?  I love any embossing folder!

This one is brand spanking new. I was not disappointed when I used it.
 (Simon is having a sale on their embossing folders this week.  Just sayin'.) 

It doesn't need much with it.  I chose a dragonfly die and used a piece of
alcohol ink background to cut the wings.

Since these is a bit of gold in the wings, I used a snippet of gold foil for the
base of the body and black for the top piece.

I think I'll do something similar for my next class.

Can You Handle the Pressure - ATG with embossing folder (did not use the flower option)
NBUS #62 - Never Before Used Schtuff (embossing folder)


Card Recipe
Paper:   Neenah Solar White, Pacific Point, Black, Yupo
Other:  Feather Spiral (SSS), Jumbo Curiosity Dragonfly (Grtry), Yana's Wonderful Scripted Sentiments (Spl)

You can't imagine how hard it was for me to say NO to that sale yesterday! I've run out of room in my favorite storage area... maybe it's time to purge a few to make room for new?
This one caught my eye, Bonnie - and you make me so happy when you bring out that sweet 'hitchhiker!' SO lovely cut from your AI'd paper! hello GORGEOUS!

I love the swirling motion of this card Bonnie - your card would not be the same without the embossing folder.
I am starting an online class using embossing folders today.

This is a beautiful folder Bonnie and can see why you wanted to get it, and the dragonfly with the alcohol ink piece used for the wings looks gorgeous, and finished with a very pretty 'hello' die. x

I love how the delicate curves of the embossed twigs beautifully weave this amazing dragonfly into themselves. What a stunning dance taking place on this card!

Gorgeous card!! Love your new embossing folder ... it's so beautiful and is the perfect place to show of your amazing AI dragonfly. Love the colours that just pop off the white background. So cool with the two tone body - great idea, Bonnie! xx

I saw this e/f in the sale and hemmed and hawed and passed it by. It's okay, I do have one similar, but you certainly made me regret it with this gorgeous card, Bon! Of course, I love anything dragonfly, so I swooned over this gorgeous big fella! The hello font fits it all brilliantly. Thank you for playing again in NBUS and joining me with my I.D.E.A.S!📌 Mwah! Hugs, Dolly

That embossing folder is definitely the star of this one. I love it. The gorgeous dragon fly enhances it perfectly. Love the black contrast too xx

Vicky Hayes said...

That's a gorgeous EF Bonnie with its gentle swirl and it makes a beautiful background for the pretty gold touched dragonfly. Thank goodness I'm not in the US as I would have been lugging an overflowing virtual cart to the checkout!! Vicky x

OMG! That is the coolest dragonfly I have ever seen due to your wonderful alcohol ink die cut. I love that it is even embossed. This is such a beautiful card, Bonnie . Love the embossed background too.
