Things With Wings Blog Hop Final Reminder


Thanks for stopping by today for the final reminder of the Things With Wings Blog Hop and Linky Party over at STAMPlorations to celebrate spring. The inspiration in the linky is absolutely amazing, thank you for everyone who has linked up. I'm honoured to join a bunch of the amazing DT ladies for the final inspiration and reminder post, you still have a few more days to link up, until April 30th to join us and also for your chance to win a bunch of great prizes. And if you aren't lucky enough to bag yourself some prizes this time round, you can always use my discount code STAMPGIRLKAROLA in the store for 20% off your order. 



For my card today I wanted to use the gorgeous Bloom Boldly stencil and the super fun Dragonfly Layering dies. I stated by inking Distress Inks through the stencil and die cut the tag using the Luggage Tags Nesting Dies. I'm happy I went for a slightly different colour combo from what I usually use, I think the bright colours have such a spring feel to them. I die cut the dragonfly and the thanks for the sentiment from a piece of green card I found in my UFO box which I created using Distress Paints way back when. Last, I die cut the solid dragonfly from vellum and another "thanks" from purple card to create a bit of contrast. Last, I mounted everything onto white card and added Ice Stickles to the sentiment and dragonfly wings.
