NC Demos Blog Hop – Dragonfly Garden Scene

Welcome to the March NC Demos Blog Hop!  As you have seen from our posts, this month’s theme is “Scene 2”!  How fun is that?  Back in August, we focused on making projects with scenes.  Since we had so much fun with those projects, we decided to have a sequel called “Scene 2” for this month 🙂

I hope you have just hopped over from Toni’s post.  Isn’t she an amazing artist?!?!  I love her project and thank her so much for sharing it with all of us.  Thank you so much for stopping by to see what I have made for this month’s blog hop!

My husband, Bruce, and I have been working in our yard and getting our gardens ready for planting.  Last year, we planted a “victory garden” in honor of staying home due to Covid and really had a great time growing vegetables (or, at least, attempting to grow them!!).  This year, we’re expanding slightly to include a new raised bed for additional space.  It should be fun!

The whole process of gardening and seeing the results of your work is so rewarding.  The stamp set in the Dandy Garden suite just makes me smile and inspires me to add color to our garden.  I thought that products from the Dandy Garden suite would be perfect for a project to fit the theme for “Scene 2”!

As you’ll see from my card below, I may have taken a little bit of a short cut on my interpretation of a scene theme.  Yup – I think the beautiful group of flowers from one of the stamps in the Dragonfly Garden stamp set is gorgeous enough on its own to be the focal point for a very simple, classic garden “scene” 🙂

Here are the details for the paper and other items that you’ll need to make the card

* Card base – Mossy Meadow card stock cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored on the 8 1/2 side at 4 1/4 and 2 1/8
* Two pieces of Dandy Garden DSP cut to 2 x 5 3/8
* Inside frame – Bumblebee card stock cut to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8
* Piece for the inside – Basic White card stock cut to 4 x 5 1/4
* The garden image and sentiments from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set
* Mossy Meadow stamp pad and Misty Moonlight stamp pad
* Watercolor Pencils to color the flower image
* Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder
* Belly band – One piece of Mossy Meadow card stock cut to 1 x 11.  One piece of Bumblebee card stock cut to 3/4 x 11.
* Ladybug trinkets and the Dragonflies Punch for some embellishments.
* Multipurpose liquid glue and dimensionals

The card is very straight forward to put together.  Below is a video from a recent Stamp Club that shows step-by-step instructions to make this card.  There are also a few tips and tricks that are included along the way.  I hope you enjoy it!

Now, please hop on over to Tracie’s post to see her amazing project!  I can’t wait to see it!  Please be sure to look at the list below to see the folks who are in this month’s blog hop.  You’ll definitely want to visit each person’s post.
