Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month, the theme is “Wonderful Cards/Projects from the Garden” where our design team showcase projects from things found in a garden, such as flowers, vegetables, fruits, or even a garden scene. We really hope that you enjoy and will be inspired by them! As you hop from blog to blog, don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. Once you finish here, you will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Handmade thinking of you card using the Very Versailles stamp set by Stampin' Up! created by Peggy Noe of Pretty Paper Cardw #veryversailles #veryversaillesstampset #peggynoe #prettypapercards #prettypapercards.com #stampinup #stampingup #clochedies #artisticdies #thinkingofyou #thinkingofyoucard #dragonflies #dragonflypunch

Today’s card has glittery dragonflies from the garden under a “cloche.” This is a sneak peek of a fun new bundle in the upcoming July-August Mini Catalog! A bit of research shows that a cloche is a small translucent cover for protecting or forcing outdoor plants ~ per the google dictionary 🙂 So I decided to put a few fun dragonflies under my cloche!

The cloche itself is colored with a Light Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blend. The dragonflies are punched with the Dragonflies Punch using the Ombre 12″ x 12″ Specialty Paper. Each little tiny dragonfly is attached to the cloche with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional, and adorned with some 2021-2023 In Color Jewels. Aren’t they just sweet?

Behind the cloche are some leaves and flowers cut from Pear Pizzaz cardstock with the Artistic Dies. These create a lovely garden background. They are all set on a piece of Soft Seafoam cardstock that has been embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

The sentiment is from the Very Versailles stamp set. It’s stamped on a 3/4″ strip of Basic White cardstock in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. The ends of the strip have been folded down and back and adhered to the embossed piece using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
