Dragonfly Dreams

I created today's card to see if it was possible to make the dragonflies pop up in the same was Lyssa Zwolanek did with her butterfly card.

I wanted a copper dragonfly for the front of my card but had to make several attempts at designing a layout before I came up with this.  I used the stamp set Touches of Texture for the background. I sponged Crumbcake ink on the Whisper White piece and stamped the images with Crumb Cake and Soft Suede. The Bees are Soft Suede stamped off once. The cardstock is Whisper White and Soft Suede. 

I cut the dragonfly wings out of cardstock Vellum and colored the wings with eyeshadow, it gives the wings a nice shimmery look. 

The "Hello" is from Eastern Beauty and is stamped with Soft Suede and sponged with Crumb Cake, with a strip of 5/8" Burlap Ribbon behind it.

The dragonflies on the inside were heat embossed with copper and then watercolored. They were cut with the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits.

So if you made it this far I have a problem that I need help with.  I had to factory reset my computer and I can't remember the name of the photo editing program I had been using.  What is an easy to learn and use program for mostly cropping photos but also simple edits? Please comment and let me know. Thanks, Kath

Colorful Seasons & I Think I'm back!

The last few years have been eventful health wise!  My health has made stamping slow but things are looking better.  Last summer I was driving down the highway (55 MPH) when I passed out. I drove approx. 1-mile unconscious, good news I did not wreck! Turns out my blood pressure (normally very low) was 179 over 99 and I was in tachycardia.  After months of every heart test that they can do all that was found was I have a very healthy heart!  Things are back to normal and I'm back to doing all the things I was doing in the past. 

So here is the first card I have made in a long time that isn't for our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge posts.  


The cardstock I used is Soft Sky (chair), Soft Suede (branch), Flirty Flamingo & Pink Pirouette (blossoms) Whisper White, Flirty Flamingo & Pool Party (card base and layers). The ink is Pool Party. I cut Dimensionals in thin strips to pop the chair up.

This set is bundled stamp and framelits in the upcoming catalog and will be available to order on June 1st, just 6 more days and the catalog is live.  If you would like to place an order you can contact me or order from my store found at   http://kathallthatscrap.stampinup.net.

Thanks for visiting!

Watercooler WednesdaycChallenge 120 - Gail's Christmas Challenge

Gail's challenge this week is a Christmas card! It's never too early to start working on Christmas cards, beats waiting til the last minute and stressing about them.
My card for the challenge is one that my sister gave me several years ago. She has always loved fat little birds.
I used Thick Whisper White card stock and stamped the image with Basic Gray then colored it with Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen.  Season's Greetings is stamped with Old Olive Ink. I mounted the image on a piece of DSP on a Thick Whisper White card base.
